John Mayer Plays Morality Police Over Taylor Swift Song, but He's Hurt Plenty of People, Too

Yahoo Contributor Network

Oh, John Mayer. The man doesn't know when to be quiet - even after he's put his foot in his mouth so many times. The target of his ire this time? Taylor Swift.

The singer, 34, tells Rolling Stone in the new issue that he is so upset that Swift wrote the song "Dear John" after him. Well, he's upset that she didn't tell him about it first.

"I never got an e-mail. I never got a phone call," he told the magazine. "I was really caught off guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I'd already been dressed down. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?"

He added that the song made him feel "terrible" because he didn't deserve it. Well, Swift obviously thought he did, so there's not much he can do about it now. How easily he forgets the crap he's talked about other former gal pals.

Need a refresher? Read on.

Jessica Simpson

Mayer dated Jessica Simpson on and off for a couple of years before they broke it off for good in 2010. The sex was apparently good in the relationship - so good, in fact, that he still felt the need to talk about it months after they broke up.

"That girl, for me, is a drug. And drugs aren't good for you if you do lots of them. Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me," he told Playboy in 2010. "Sexually it was crazy. That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm."

He later apologized and stopped talking to the press for awhile, but Simpson never really forgave him.

"It made me so sad, and it was really discouraging, because that's not the John I knew," she told Oprah in late 2010, though she admitted he could have said worst things. "My phone is ringing off the hook."

Jennifer Aniston

Mayer also dated another A-list star Jennifer Aniston. The notoriously private Aniston never really talked about her relationship with Mayer, but he couldn't stop talking about her. The singer later told Rolling Stone that she was basically the one that got away.

"I burned the American flag. I basically murdered an ideal. I've never really gotten over it. It was one of the worst times of my life," he said. We're sure she just loved you talking about their relationship, John.

So, what do you think: Does John Mayer just need to stop talking about subjects other than music, or is he right about Taylor Swift's diss?
