Was Taylor Swift Wrong To Record ‘Dear John’? John Mayer Says Yes [POLL]

In a world of reality shows and probing paparazzi, It’s no surprise that the love lives of famous people are exposed and analyzed by everyone with a few minutes to spare at the grocery check out line. What we are not necessarily used to is the famous person themselves airing their “dirty” laundry out for everyone to see.

This is what John Mayer accused Taylor Swift of doing in his latest interview with
Rolling Stone” magazine. In the latest issue John says of Taylor’s 2010 song “Dear John” song, “It made me feel terrible. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.” “Dear John” is on her album, “Speak now”.

Taylor SwiftIn fairness to Taylor, she has never to my knowledge said explicitly who the song was about but she did during promoting the album say that people would probably know at whom it was directed.

Mayer went on to say in the “Rolling Stone interview, “I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I’d already been dressed down, I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you’ve ever been, someone kicked you even lower?”

Also in fairness, John Mayer has also been accused of “saying too much” about past loves like Jennifer Aniston , Jessica Simpson and allegedly his own hit, “Your body is a wonderland” was written about Jennifer Love Hewitt but it was later established that the song was already recorded before he met her. He has since said it was about a girl he dated when he was a teenager. Even so, that is clearly a love song and quite complimentary, I’m not sure anyone would say that “Dear John” is complimentary.

I will give you a sample of the lyrics:

And you’ll add my name to your long list of traitors who don’t understand

And I’ll look back in regret how I ignored when they said

‘Run as fast as you can’

Dear John, I see it all now that you’re gone

Don’t you think I was too young

To be messed with

The girl in the dress

Cried the whole way home

Now I will let you decide if she was “out of line” in recording this song for the whole world to hear. I honestly feel like I could make a strong argument for both sides.
