John Mayer, 45, has spoken again about his 2013 song Paper Doll, which was long thought to be about his ex Taylor Swift, 33.
John reportedly dated Taylor from December 2009 until February 2010 when he was 31 and she was 19 – with the parting amicably.
The romance appears to have ended on bad terms, based on her scathing song Dear John that many people think is about him.
Many thought its melody was a rebuttal to Taylor’s heartwarming 2010 song Dear John.
During the John Mayer Solo live show on Tuesday, John talked about his song Paper Doll, telling the audience, “I wonder if people don’t like it because it sounds like it’s a little off.” I don’t like “pi**ed off” as a song. I think it was more painful, though Hey ho.

Adding, “Is there just something about this that’s a little unsettling?” I try not to give duets in the song and that happens sometimes. I guess I don’t do it very well – mocking h***h.
His candid comments come just days after it was revealed that Taylor had split from her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, of six years.
However, in 2019, John had a song that wasn’t about what people thought of his Instagram talk show.
The duo has an age difference of 12 years.
They originally met when she collaborated on his song Half of My Heart, which led to a short three-month relationship from December 2009 to February 2010.
The name of her song Dear John as well as the lyrics recalling her age (19) at the time of the romance seem to lead to the conclusion that is truth about John and their rocky but brief romance, though the singer has never confirmed this. for him.
The timing of the song also confirms that it’s about John: She also released the song in October 2010 on her Speak Now album, eight months after their reported split.
Melody gave insight into how Taylor and John’s reported romance failed, as the singer sang in Melody: ‘Dear John, I see it all now that you’re gone / Don’t you think I was too young to mess around / The girl in the dress cried all the way back to home.
She also wrote the lyrics: “Well, maybe it’s me / And my blind optimism to blame / Or maybe it’s you and your pathological need / To give love and take it away.
“Dear John, I see it all now, it was a mistake / Don’t you think nineteen is too young to be played with your dark, twisted toys.”
His words seemed to respond to Taylor’s remarks.

Taylor had sung: “You paint me a blue sky and then come back and turn it into rain,” with his apparently lyrical response: “And if you don’t fly angel wings, someone will paint you another sky.”
“And I look back with pity at how I ignored when they said, ‘Run as fast as you can,'” she sang, with his line saying, “You’re like twenty-two girls in one, and none of them know what they’re being made of.”
He added more fuel to the fire in 2012 when he said Rolling Stone Magazine that he felt “really offended” by the song, which made him feel terrible.
“Because I didn’t deserve it,” he told the outlet in a 2012 interview. I’m so good at taking responsibility now, I’ve never done anything to deserve it. It was really bad for her.
He said at the time that he didn’t know how I felt until after the song was released: “I never got an email. I did not receive a phone call. I was really surprised, and it really insulted me at a time when I was already dressed. I mean, how would you feel if someone kicked you even lower?

He also took a quick swipe at Taylor’s songwriting in the candid interview: “I will say as a songwriter I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting.” I know it’s the biggest thing in the world, and I’m not trying to sink anyone’s ship, but I think he’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, “Wait till he gets a load of that!” This bull *** t.
After his pointed words, Taylor was asked her thoughts on what Rolling Stone said.
She told Glamor magazine: “How daring!” I never say who my songs are about. I know it wasn’t good, so I don’t want to know. I make staying happy a top priority, and I know what I can’t handle,” via MTV.
And she continued, “It doesn’t mean that I’m crazy and I don’t want to hear anything negative, because I watch myself. But I never developed that thick skin. So I just live life, and let all the gossip live elsewhere. If you go too far down the rabbit hole of what people think of you, it can change everything about you.
