Is John Mayer’s “Paper Doll” About Taylor Swift? He Talks…

“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?”

I think we can all pretty much agree that John Mayer probably most likely definitely wrote his new song “Paper Doll” with ex Taylor Swift in mind. In a typical douchebaggery move, JM whined to Rolling Stone in 2012 about how T.Swizzle’s song “Dear John” was cheap songwriting: “It’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait til he gets a load of this!’ It really humiliated me at a time when I’d already been dressed down.” So the fact that he probably most likely definitely wrote this song about his ex as revenge is L.A.M.E.

But after he was asked if the song is in fact about Tay, John replied, “Yeah, songwriters write songs because of people, about people,” he finally said. “Anything someone else wrote is their reception of a song. I don’t get involved with it. It’s none of my business.”

Umm, I still don’t really know what he’s saying here, but I’m going to go with the fact that it’s probably most likely definitely a confirmation that he wrote it about T.Swift. Don’t you agree?

    Seems to me like he’s just doing to her what he once considered cheap and humiliating. Kind of hypocritical of him

    Revenge is sweet…but this is just LAME!! John already broke Taylor’s heart…he doesn’t need to break it more. I’m here for you Taylor!! <3

  5. Maria Said:

    Personally, I’m a big Taylor Swift fan. I loved the song ‘Dear John’ I think it showcases some of her best writing and strongest vocals. I also really love the song ‘Paper Doll’. I don’t really care if it is about Taylor. I like the song and I don’t find it offensive to Taylor at all (if it is about her). ‘like 22 girls in one’ thats an accurate description of any girl. The lyrics ‘someones gonna paint you a new sky’ sounds like he’s saying she’ll find love some day. That’s how I interpret it.
