Taylor Swift is notorious for singing all about her past relationships and calling out all of her exes through song.
On her last album, Swift had a song entitled “Dear John.” Though she never reveals who her songs are about, the rumors are always flying as to who it could possibly be in reference to, and this song was no different.
It is assumed that this song is in reference to singer John Mayer. With lyrics like, “Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong, don’t you think nineteen’s to young to be played with,” it’s no wonder this song has serious rumors surrounding it.
Recently, Swift has been promoting her new album, Red. While on an interview with Glamour Magazine, Swift discussed the song, “Dear John,” and its rumored subject.
According to the Washington Post, Swift was interviewed by Cynthia McFadden, whom also interviewed her for the TV show, Nightline.
McFadden asked Taylor about the comments that John Mayer recently made in Rolling Stone about the song being about him. Taylor quickly responded, calling him “presumptuous” for assuming the song was indeed about him.
Taylor said, “How presumptuous! I never disclose who my songs are about.”
USA Today reports that John Mayer said he was “humiliated” by the song. Mayer also said that he thought it was “a really lousy thing for her to do.”
Taylor never admitted who the song was about and refuses to acknowledge Mayer’s comments.
You know what they say when you assume things.
Taylor’s new album, Red comes out on October 22.
