John Mayer Ticked Off at Taylor Swift [VIDEO]
I knew one of these days that one of these guys Taylor Swift always writes about would step forward and state a resounding objection. Of course, it didn't occur to me it would be one of her most famous subjects.
Pop singer John Mayer has unloaded on Rolling Stone magazine about Taylor's song "Dear John" from her Speak Now album.
Now Taylor has never said that "Dear John" was about Mayer, so maybe Mayer should've kept his mouth shut if he really is as humiliated as he says he is. I mean, it's pretty obvious that he's the subject and this little predicament has been widely covered.
But why grouse publicly about it? Why now? The album was released in 2010 and the song was never released as a single. Plus, it's never been played very much as an album track.
See? This has the potential to really backfire on John Mayer. All he's really done is call attention to the song. And that attention could, in turn, generate airplay. And then we'll all hear it all the time.
And, so will he.
And then he'll pick up his mobile phone and call Rolling Stone again. And, we'll have to hear about his humiliation all over again.
Hey, John, you have a pretty decent career, yourself.
Get over it.
