John Mayer Releases Prancercise Video! Paper Doll Is Full Of Endorphins AND Taylor Swift Memories!

John Mayer has successfully pulled our heart in two separate directions here. Who knew!?

While he makes us LOL with the genius idea to feature the work-out of the year in his new lyric video, he turns our protective headlights on when the not-so-subtle Taylor Swift references appear in Paper Doll.

You knew the day was coming…

In what seems to be his own musical response to Swifty's vengeful Dear John, the guitar-playing crooner offers his side of the story with his lyrics:

"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?"

Her current smash hit single is 22. So obvious!

"Someone's gonna paint you another sky."

This has to be an answer to her lyric, "You paint me a blue sky and go back and turn it to rain." C'mon, we're no fool!

"Sure was fun being good to you."

In an interview with Rolling Stone, he insisted he did nothing to deserve her loaded words in Dear John, leading us all to believe he felt he was a good boyfriend to her.

We doubt he's gonna deny it, but even if he does, the song definitely brings her memory back for us!

Ch-ch-check it ouuttt (below)!

HIGHLARIOUS. And obvious. LOLz!

What do U think??

    It would be great if all her past bf's that she's written songs portraying them in a bad light do a group song about her. That would be lovely.

    She had to know it that someone would give her a taste of her own medicine one of these days. No need to feel bad for her. She had it coming.

    Awkward because "Dear John" was cheap writing yet is a masterpiece compared to "paper doll"

    This song is definitely not about T Swift. It's about a girl he loves who is afraid to take the plunge and fall in love with him, and the sky line means if she doesn't pick him, she's such a great girl that someone else will make her happy. Not Taylor. Probably Perry.

    i don't listen to swift's music so i actually youtubed dear john. it was boring and putting me to sleep but not only did i see that john's song was clearly a response to hers but i realized how absolutely dumb it is for him to be upset with her and for anyone to be on either of these people's side.

    john also has made a career out of talking about his ex's. only he was a bit more disgusting with it. in my opinion anyway. these two don't know how to just shut their mouths when it comes to who they're dating or were dating and it's really annoying. neither one will learn their lesson because if they were going to, they would have by now. they're so one in the same that it doesn't make sense to like one and not the other. i dislike both equally for the same reason.

    I'm glad someone spilled the beans on that whore. It's just not mean like I wish it was. Tell us about the whore she really is.



  19. 19

    I find all JOhn Mayer songs to be boring. I never understood why people liked his music. I'm sure he thinks he did not do anything wrong to Taylor (no, I'm not a fan) but he goes through women like water through a strainer.



  20. 20

    Oh, and that prancersize woman is creepy and it looks totally stupid.

  21. perezito says – reply to this

    Is Mayer back after Swift or is he just back for his musical career……

  22. daneylle says – reply to this

    Just like Taylor said "they can write songs about me too if the want". Forget their personal lives and appreciate their music.

    I think the song is about Katy Perry. They reunited in the fall and went hot and heavy over the short winter season, things cooled with the coming of spring. She wore the mint green dress to the Oscars. Katy Perry is a montage of characters… each song she changes her look and persona for the song tone/mood for her videos and stage performances. Plus on a personal level she comes across as very complex… she can be strong and independent with a very good busy savvy, and yet has this girlish speaking voice and big eyes she bats. Is coy and innocent and then can be balls to the wall sex kitten… she is probably more than 22 girls in one.Regarding the good… he has been living up to his new goals and trying to keep a lower profile with his relationships… keeping quiet. Whether the relationships reunites and /or works out they both went into it with the best of intentions. I think it is an ode to Katy not a slam at Taylor. Plus he has said what that the whole Taylor thing was just cheap song writing. I think if JCM would lower himself to the immature level "OOh I'll get you back with my own song…" He is a 35 year old man not a twenty something girl

    the song is boring and is nothing bad about taylor, I don't see what's the big deal, maybe he wants publicity.



  25. 25

    That song almost put me to sleep.

    OMG! Props to John Mayer! She had it coming.
    Now if only her ex bfs would collaborate in one song. I'd buy it.



  27. 27

    There is no way this is about Taylor. If it is about anyone it is an ode to Katy Perry. They reunited in the fall and went hot and heavy over the brief winter season cooling with the coming of spring. She wore that mint green dress to the Oscars. She is the woman of many different characters; professionally she conveys all kinds of different personas' for her videos and stage performances. Then on a personal level she is a complex woman, she is strong and interdependent, a successful business woman, and yet has these big eyes and girlish voice and seems to crave love and being loved. She can come across as wide eyed and innocent and on a turn of a dime be balls to the wall sex kitten. JCM has stated he thought Taylor's' song was cheap song writing…. that if you have something to say just say it to the person. I don't get the sense he is the kind of man who would be "I'll show you…". He is a 35 year old man not a 21 year old girl.

    john is a jackass but I kinda like this song. But Dear John is better. John should write another song about taylor

    -I am glad that John wrote a song about Taylor and give this bitch a taste of her medicine. Nasty white trash,

    In Dear John Taylor refers to herself as "the girl in the dress". This entire song is about dressing a paper doll. She also says "Wonderin’ which version of you I might get on the phone". This song is all about different versions of the same girl. The lyrics in this song talk about angel wings, etc. Taylor is always seen as the "good girl". I don't think it's an outright mean song. But I think he's saying she played a part in their break up too. She isn't what everyone sees in public. She's different in private.

    "You're like 22 girls in one & none of them know what they're running from." More like you dated 22 girls & they ran as fast as they could..

    Re: nightengale68 – I also wondered that, there's also a quote by Russell Brand (that he made back when he was married to Katy) about how he still woke up to a different woman every morning, but this time that they were all his wife. He meant it in a positive way, but she is a bit of a chameleon. John's already kind of replied to "Dear John" in song. There's a lyric in "Shadow Days" that goes "I'm not some trouble maker, and I never meant her harm. But, that doesn't mean I didn't make it hard to carry on. Well, it hurts to be honest, and it sucks to be real. But, it's nice to make some love that I can finally feel." Which sounds like a reply to the "Dear John" accusations.

    Cool song. So he admits he was in love with Taylor? But Taylor ran away like she always does?

    John Mayer is Trouble with a capital T. Taylor was right - he never loved her or her or anyone. He has issues.

    Re: danalex – hahaha touche. He does tend to project his own habits onto others, doesn't he? Atleast in song…

    He was easy on her. Kind, even.

    When he says "step into some heels that hurt"…is that a reference to her song "Begin Again" when she says "He didn't like it when I wore high heels but I do"?? Just wondering, i was instantly reminded of that song when I read his lyrics for some reason

  40. DD says – reply to this

    Re: Emily – Oh, I did not think of that. I think you're may be right. Does that mean Begin Again is about him? Or he thinks it's about him?
