What goes around comes around! For once Taylor is on the receiving end of a diss song, as her ex John’s new song ‘Paper Doll’ calls her out for being ’22 girls in one.’ Yikes!
Taylor Swift‘s ears must be burning right about now! John Mayer just released his awesome new song “Paper Doll,” and in it he takes several jabs at his ex, as he compares her to a paper doll and implies she is two faced. Is he retaliating for “Dear John”? Listen to the song here!
John Mayer Disses Taylor Swift With ‘Paper Doll’
John, 35, was obviously more upset with Taylor’s revenge break up song “Dear John” that we thought. In his new song, his lyrics are totally dissing Taylor:
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?
In “Dear John,” Taylor, 23, sings “All the girls that you run dry have tired lifeless eyes cause you burned them out,” and you can’t deny there is an interesting similarity. Plus, Taylor has a song called “22”!
Another lyric in “Paper Doll” goes “Someone’s gonna paint you another sky.” This has to be an answer to Taylor’s lyric, “You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain.”
John appears to be dissing Taylor for her immaturity, but at least he implies that she will find love again.
Taylor famously called John out with the 2010 song, where she sang:
Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong/Don’t you think nineteen’s too young/To be played by your dark, twisted games/When I loved you so, I should’ve known.
John Mayer Talks About ‘Dear John’ In ‘Rolling Stone’
For more evidence that this song is about Tay Tay, lets turn to John’s interview with Rolling Stone magazine in June 2012. He revealed that he was “humiliated” by “Dear John”:
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.
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?
I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting. I know she’s the biggest thing in the world, and 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!’ That’s bulls**t.
I guess John is sick of getting mad and instead he is getting even!
