Taylor Swift to fans: stop attacking John Mayer

She never said her name, but Taylor Swift asked fans not to attack ex-boyfriend John Mayer when she drops her version of the album Speak Now– which contains the song “Dear John” – next month.

” I am 33 years old. I don’t care about anything that happened to me when I was 19,” she said during a concert in Minneapolis on Saturday night.

“I’m not releasing this album so you can go and I should feel the need to defend myself on the internet against someone you think I might have written a song about 14 billion years ago.”

Swift was 19 when she briefly dated Mayer, who was 12 years older than her – and fans have long been convinced the hot track is about him and their breakup.

“Don’t you think I was too young?” she sings. “You should have known.”

In apparent confirmation that her call for “kindness” and the melody is about Mayer, she broke an 11-year drought and performed “Dear John” for the Minneapolis crowd.

Mayer slammed Swift for the song, telling rolling stone ten years ago that he “didn’t deserve it”.

“I’m good enough to take responsibility now, and I’ve never done anything to deserve this,” he said. “It was a really ugly thing for her to do.”

The Swifties were slow to forgive Mayer. Last year, they rallied when he was announced as a guest on the Call Her Daddy podcast, hosted by fellow Taylor fan Alex Cooper.

When Cooper asked Mayer about his “fuckboy” reputation, the Grammy winner avoided mentioning Swift.

“It’s the role I play in the big TV show that I didn’t write, but that’s okay. Maybe I contributed to it or something,” he said.

Swift releases her own version of Speak Now as part of an ongoing effort to regain control of his music which began when Scooter Braun bought his former label and the masters of his original albums.
