John Mayer and Taylor Swift used to date, but afterward she wrote a song about their relationship called Dear John. He called it “cheap songwriting” and yet, this time he has written a song purportedly for her. The song is called Paper Doll and when asked, John addressed the rumors that he was referring to the country singer in the song.
He was on the Today show to perform a short set when the show’s co-host, Willie Geist, said, “There’s been some speculation from the press that it might be about someone. True or false?”
Willie was obviously playing coy without mentioning Taylor’s name, but we all know that he was talking about her with his question. John responded, “Yeah, songwriters write songs because of people, about people. Anything someone else wrote is their reception of a song. I don’t get involved with it. It’s none of my business.”
Do you think Paper Doll is about Taylor Swift?
