In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, John Mayer admits to being humiliated by Taylor Swift's song "Dear John". Although Swift has never clearly stated the song is about him, she is widely known for drawing from past relationships for song content.
Almost two years after the song's release, Mayer explains to Stone that it "Made me feel terrible. Because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."
Briefly dating a couple of years ago, the song was released in late 2010—shortly after Mayer's relapse into a two year hiatus.
Also commenting on how Swift added to his already "low" state, he bashes the song by saying "as a songwriter that I think it's kind of cheap songwriting… 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!"
