Back in 2021, a source told Us Weekly, “John is doing everything he can to avoid the attention Taylor’s new album has been giving him.
He will not publicly say anything about her songs or album that has to do with them.” The insider also said that John felt like 2010 was “coming back to haunt him.”
“Stop this train” is probably something John Mayer wishes he could do. Twitter-using Swifties are going after the singer because of “Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve,” a new bonus track on “Midnights” by Taylor Swift.
“When I was 19, the honest truth from God was that the pain was heaven. Now that I am older, I am afraid of ghosts.” Swift, who is 32, sings, “Memories feel like weapons/And now that I know, I wish you had left me wondering.”

“If you had not touched me, I would have joined the righteous. If I had not blushed, they would not have talked about it. If you had not saved me from boredom, I could have kept going as I was. But Lord, you made me feel important, and then you tried to get rid of us.
Suffice it to say that Swift’s fans had a lot of fun with what seemed to be an attack on her ex-boyfriend, even though it happened more than a decade ago.
“John Mayer, be afraid,” one Swiftie wrote in a tweet. “Damn, I wish John Mayer was still alive. My guy would have loved this website if he were still around. “R.I.P.,” said another tweet.
“JOHN MAYER COUNT YOUR F–KING DAYS!!!” wrote someone else on Twitter. “John Mayer, you should start running,” someone else tweeted.
“John Mayer will never go to heaven because of this (she was 19, and he was 32),” wrote someone else. This is not the first time fans of his ex have hurt the singer of “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room.”
A Swift fan told Mayer to “die” last year, and Mayer replied. Swift sings, “When I was 19, the honest truth is that the pain was heaven, and now that I am older, I am afraid of ghosts.”
Screenshots from the Instagram account @deux.discussions show that a Swiftie named Alondra wrote to Mayer, “f–k yourself, you ugly bitch. I hope you choke on something .” Later, the user sent the “New Light” singer another message that said, “Answer me, you bitch.”
Mayer, 45, seemed to have had enough and wrote back, “Hi, Alondra, it is John. I have been getting many of these kinds of messages in the last few days. I picked your message out of the hat to answer. If you want, you can take a screenshot and share it wherever you like.”
He said, “I am not angry; I am just naturally curious and feel like I have to ask.” Do you want me to die?”
Alondra then wrote back, “OMG WHAT? I do not want you to DIE,” along with a 30-second voice note with audio that does not seem to have been released. She then wrote “I am sorry” to the singer to say she was sorry.
Mayer dated Swift from 2009 to 2010, when he was 32, and she was 19. Many people think that her song “Dear John” on “Speak Now” is about him.
