Did Taylor Swift Write A Song For John Mayer?

Did Taylor Swift Write A Song For John Mayer?-photo

Fans already know that Kanye West and (probably) Taylor Lautner are getting the Taylor Swift song treatment on her upcoming album, Speak Now. (Recall Taylor's barefoot pity-fest for West at the VMAs and the apology song "Back to December" rumored to be about "best friend" T-Laut.) Now it appears Swift is giving another famous dude a lyrical shout-out, reportedly revealing she had a short-lived romance with John Mayer!

According to Yahoo! music blogger Chris Willman, Swift's new track "Dear John" is a slap to Mayer, with whom Swift may have had a failed relationship. Though Swift stops short of confirming Mayer's identity, she tells Willman she wasn't afraid to name names in her new tunes. Check out the lyrics:

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/I should've known." A second version of the chorus includes the lines: "It was wrong/Don't you think nineteen's too young/To be played/By your dark, twisted games/When I loved you so.

How did Mayer, who is twelve years Swift's senior, manage to woo the star with the pristine rep? Let's just say her notoriously protective mom wasn't keen on it:

My mother accused me of losing my mind/But I swore I was fine..." And: "You'll add my name to your long list of traitors who don't understand/And I'll look back in regret I ignored what they said/'Run as fast as you can'.

It's times like these when we really wish we could turn to Mayer's Twitter feed for an off-the-cuff response, but alas, we are left to contact reps for both musicians and await response.

Do you think "Dear John" is about Mayer? Weigh in via the comments.

    HE'S JOHN MAYER! OF COURSE HE WAS PLAYING WITH YOUR EMOTIONS! He brags about being a womanizer and how sex is all that really matters to him, and she has the nerve to feel hurt?I really didn't believe these rumors, but I guess they were true! Kinda creepy that a 32 year old man was persuing her, even though she was legally an adult. John Mayer's a jerk; always has been and I'm sure he always will be. C'mon Taylor, you were asking for that one.. I am none of the above... but what would you know anyway, right? Have you ever met me? Didn't think so. For the record, Taylor is a "dreamer" and when Taylor does not get what Taylor wants she has a fit! He is spoiled and "momma" has helped that along. Taylor is the slick one here, not I. But why would I think you would be any different that anyone else in this industry of bloodsuckers and even try to understand me?

    I think Taylor Swift is a sick twisted little girl who dreams up most of her agony just to write songs. Don't let her youth and innocent look fool you.

    I really don't believe John Mayer likes women. That's why he plays with them so much. Hoping he'll find one that will help him forget his attraction to another gender.

    If this is true she was the stupid one for falling for his crap,after the way he publicly disrespected his relationships. She should have known better.
