Taylor Swift Performed “Dear John” For The First Time In 11 Years And Seemingly Told Her Fans Not To Start Trolling John Mayer Over It Again
Hopefully, John Mayer has access to some kind of underground bunker (under Andy Cohen’s low bar should be deep enough) in preparation for Taylor Swift’s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) album release because Taylor just performed her song “Dear John” (that’s pretty obviously about him) for the first time in 11 years at one of her recent Eras Tour shows. Though she prefaced it by seemingly telling her fans to LEAVE JOHN ALONE, I’m pretty confident that before she even finished singing the song, at least one of her diehards probably DMed John a video of the performance and threatened to smack the stanky guitar face right off of him–despite fellow (but considered to be less nefarious in Taylor’s fandom) Speak Now muse, Taylor Lautner, also recently sending John his prayers for mercy leading up to the (legal) July 7 album re-release.
Since the release of his new book about parenthood, The Daddy Diaries: The Year I Grew Up, Andy Cohen’s been making his rounds promoting the autobiography in the press, and his most recent stop was SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday, where Howard Stern got candid about Andy’s not so little penchant for name dropping celebs, especially affably charming heartthrob John Mayer (who could blame him), who was mentioned so many times he should get residuals! Howard/s take? The pair’s relationship is riding the fence between romance and bromance! And to his credit, he may be right- cause, according to Andy, he’s “in love” with John Mayer.
Taylor Lautner Is “Praying For” John Mayer With The Looming Re-Release Of Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now”
Taylor Swift announced she was re-releasing her third studio album, Speak Now, this coming July, and the Swifties buckled up for losing their minds even more than they are over the Eras Tour she’s currently on. And the men on the album buckled up for the resurgence of hatred from all of Taylor’s fans for the ways they did her dirty. This album’s targets include Taylor Lautner and John Mayer, and while Taylor L. is not worried about Taylor S.’s fans roasting him, he recently said he’s “Praying for John.” Well, John doesn’t deserve the prayers, but Taylor L. does have the right idea because after Taylor S. released the music video for All Too Well (10 Minute Version), the Swifties remembered that they hate Jake Gyllenhaal after all these years. So John had better buckle up for the barrage that is inevitably coming his way. He’s gonna get so many rat emojis and death threats.
John Mayer Shared Some New Thoughts About His Song “Paper Doll,” Which Was Rumored To Be About Taylor Swift
Back in 2013, John Mayer released a song called “Paper Doll,” which was widely thought to be a subtle retaliation to Taylor Swift’s 2010 “Dear John”– a diss track assumed to be about his manipulation tactics. The two dated back in 2009 when John was 32, and Taylor was 19, and since John is still a big, bulky bag of bright red flags even now that he’s 45 and “doesn’t really date anymore,” it’s no surprise that their brief dalliance was a mess. But according to E! News, during one of John’s performances the other night, he prefaced the song by admitting that it was probably a bitchy move.
John Mayer claims that he hasn’t really dated since getting sober six years ago. He revealed this very important information on Call Me Daddy, a podcast hosted by Alex Cooper. 45-year-old John tells Alex that, without alcohol as a crutch, he lacks the “liquid courage” to go on dates. So that seemingly romantic four-hour dinner he shared with Kiernan Shipka last month? The one at the Italian restaurant, where John was spotted serenading 23-year-old Kiernan? That shit was probably platonic. Well, hopefully. John’s exact wording was “I don’t really date.” And that’s a helluva lot weaker than: “I never ever date, especially not female celebrities of the Gen-Z variety.”
The Daily Mail is reporting that John Mayer and Kiernan Shipka went on a romantic, four-hour dinner date last night at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica last night. At one point, witnesses claim 45-year-old John serenaded 22-year-old Kiernan with a song. Dear god, that’s his mating call! Say it with me, everyone: “Get your filthy slut paws off of Sally Draper!”
