John Mayer Denies Dissing Taylor Swift in 'Paper Doll'


John Mayer


The 'Your Body Is a Wonderland' singer won't admit that the latest single off 'Paradise Valley' is written as a response to her ex-girlfriend's song about him, 'Dear John'.

John Mayer visited "Today" show at New York's Rockefeller Plaza on Friday, July 5, to promote his newest album, "Paradise Valley". In the interview, the 35-year-old singer addressed rumor that his newest single, "Paper Doll", was about ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift.

"There's been some speculation from the press that it might be about someone. True or false?" host Willie Geist asked. Mayer then answered, "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."

Fans have been speculating that "Paper Doll" was written by Mayer to respond to Swift's "Dear John". In the song, Swift clearly blasts Mayer as she sings, "I'll look back and regret how I ignored when they said run as fast as you can."

In "Paper Doll", Mayer fires back at Swift, singing, "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?"

Previously, Mayer slammed Swift's decision to write a song about their short-lived relationship. In a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he said, "As a songwriter, 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," he continued.

During his stop to "Today", Mayer also hit the stage to perform "Paper Doll" and "Waiting on the World to Change".
