Just in case you forgot how huge of a super douche-canoe John Mayer is, and/or the anecdote about him using Fifty Shades of Grey to pick up chicks wasn’t enough, here he is whining to Rolling Stone about Taylor Swift writing a song about him dumping her which is something he would never do. No, never.
“It made me feel terrible,” Mayer says in the new issue of Rolling Stone, on newsstands Friday. “Because I didn’t deserve it. 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.”
Mayer now tells Rolling Stone that he learned about Swift’s feelings directly from her song. “I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call,” he says. “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?” When asked about the song’s line, “Don’t you think I was too young to be messed with?” Mayer says, “I don’t want to go into that.”
Mayer also takes issue with “Dear John” as a musician. “I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he says. “I know she’s the biggest thing in the world, and I’m not trying to sink anybody’s ship, but I think it’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait till he gets a load of this!’ That’s bullshit.”
Just so everyone’s clear, John Mayer is literally whining about the fact that his ridiculous fame and wealth allowed him to bang a hot, young famous musician, immediately kick her to the curb while she was still getting dressed, yet she had the nerve to write a song about it because she was just a teenager not even two years earlier who probably thought he was going to marry her when he said the words, “If we do this, I’ll marry you.” Wow, talk about a bitch. It’s like he fucked Hitler.
