After Swift’s rerelease of her studio album Red, now-titled Red (Taylor’s Version)Her massive fanbase went crazy for Jake Gyllenhaal, who seemed to be the main focus in her single and ten minute long video. “All Too Well.” He was now the official villain of all of Hollywood and deserved to be shunned by all of society because of what he did to Taylor—at least that’s what Swifties would say. Well, if Gyllenhaal is being called out for his behavior, fans decided it was time to call out another relationship that they didn’t think was fair to their goddess—her relationship with John Mayer.

Mayer started the whole thing by tweeting his thoughts about Swift being like Stevie Nicks. He wanted Swift to sing on his song. “Half of my Heart”It was early 2009.

The lyrics are very obviousSwift fans: “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 / Dear John, I see it all now, it was wrong / Don’t you think nineteen’s too young / To be played by your dark, twisted games / When I loved you so? / I shoulda known.”
Swift fans believe that Swift was taken advantage by an older, more experienced musician. Mayer was 32 years old at the time and Swift was 19. Given her vulnerability and age, he should have kept his distance. Now? Officially, Mayer was on the blacklist for all Swifties.
What John Mayer has done for Taylor Swift and her fans
The answer is obvious. “Daughters” singer-songwriter wasn’t oblivious or unaware that Swift’s song was about him—but he wasn’t exactly thrilled that he found out along with everyone else. “I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call,” Mayer said Rolling Stone. “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?”
From a musician’s standpoint, Mayer also wasn’t impressed with the reasoning or storyline behind her lyrics. “I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,”He went on to say more. “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.”
Mayer was unable to remain silent so he released a song called “Paper Doll,”It is thought that this song may be his comeback diss. “You’re like twenty-two girls in one / And none of them know what they’re running from / Was it just too far to fall / For a little paper doll,” These are just a handful of the lyrics—and he even mentions a red scarf.

I’ve been getting so many messages like these the past couple of days, I decided to choose your message at random to reply to,”He replied. “You can feel free to screenshot, share in any way you like if you want. I’m not upset, I just tend to have a curious mind and feel compelled to ask. Do you really hope that I die?”The person was stunned when he responded and apologized for making him feel sorry.
