No More Bad Blood Between John Mayer And Taylor Swift?


Singer and producer John Mayer, who was romantically involved with Taylor Swift a couple of years back, spoke to Billboard about their relationship and even praised his ex-girlfriend’s ‘really cool’ attitude toward Spotify.

’’We have to be able to talk about Taylor Swift! Artists need the person with the loudest voice to speak for them. … I think that’s a really cool thing for a musician to do. Like two percent of the music industry has 80 percent of all the media about it. There’s like four people who get all the press, and if any of those four people say, ‘I want to speak for those people who would just never make this a story.’ The only reason we’re talking about Taylor Swift taking Spotify on is because she’s Taylor Swift!’’

After speculations that Taylor wrote Dear John about him breaking her heart, Mayer supposedly wrote Paper Doll in response to her track. Now, Mayer says it’s all a thing of the past.

’’I’m not in the business of telling people what the song is about. I never said anything about it. And now I just go, ‘Look, I can say the name Taylor Swift. She’s an artist. I’m an artist. Let’s just … everybody stop. Nobody’s got an incurable cancer. We’re rich people who get to live out our dreams. Let’s just stop it. … It’s really about the longevity of all the work that goes together, and I’m just not interested in the things that won’t last forever.’’
