John Mayer’s new single, ‘Paper Doll’, may be his form of payback. The singer said he was “humiliated” after the song ‘Dear John’ appeared on Taylor’s 2010 Speak Now album, and now he’s apparently fighting lyrics … with lyrics. It’s never been confirmed that Swift dated Mayer, but, it seems fair to say that there was something going on between them. She insinuated that Mayer was presumptuous for assuming ‘Dear John’ was written about him….
Mayer’s new single goes, “You’re like 22 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?”. Reading between the lines, the “22 girls” may refer to Swift’s hit song ’22’.
You decide. Here is the official lyric video for John Mayer’s new single called “Paper Doll”
One thing for sure…is if Tay-Tay feels this is directed at her, I don’t think she will get mad, she will simply write a new and better song!
One ‘songwriter’ who made no bones about it when he wrote a song and directed it at his ex-wife Pamela Anderson, is Kid Rock! He even says in the beginning of the song:
“Hey now darlin’…you thought it was all fun & games, runnin’ round telling everyone why we’re not together. I guess you just had to feel important. And I’m sure you thought that I was just gonna sit back and take it on the chin. But honey, I’m a SONGWRITER, and that darlin’ is where you end….and this song begins!”
Here is his not so subtle at all song about how he feels about ‘Pammy” now! Kid Rick: “Half Your Age”
If you are thinking of dating a ‘songwriter’…consider this!
Do you have an ex that will not let bygones be bygones? What do they do to keep getting under YOUR skin?
