John Mayer: Taylor Swift Doesn't Know She's Taylor Swift

John Mayer may just be Taylor Swift‘s biggest fan.

The “No Such Thing” musician chatted with Access Hollywood on his admiration for the 19-year-old Nashville princess. John shared, “Taylor Swift is the last person to know she’s Taylor Swift, which I think is totally sweet. It’s almost like Taylor Swift is like a character in a movie about a small town girl who has her dreams come true and what any small time girl would do when their dreams come true is to freak out.”

He continued, “I still like it that she freaks out, but pretty soon she’s gonna have to stop because it’s sort of like, ‘You’re that good. You’re that good. You might have to go to therapy and have someone else tell you you’re that good.’ So it’s great to have someone who’s hugely talented and still is able to receive the pleasure in all moments.”

John and Taylor join their musical talents together on his new record. The duo collaborated on “Half of My Heart,” off his new album, Battle Studies. “I don’t normally make records to share tracks with people…I consider her a friend. I think she’s a really remarkable person and it’ll be nice to have her name on the record for the rest of my life,” John shared.

    i agree, as he said “there’s something about Taylor that she would have been a star in any decade” but i tottaly disagree about that she must stop reacting the way she reacting.. that shows that even your important,famous etc u never take it ALL that for sure.. and u STILL APPRECIATE every award or cd every time.. i would not like taylor to win a award and will be like the others diva of hollywood.. THIS IS THE REASON WHYYYY WE LOVE TAYLOR SWIFT: SHE IS SIMPLE.. SHE IS REAL, AND WHEN SHE REACTHS LIKE THIS, THAT MAKES AS SMILE!!

  • CS

    I LOVE HIM! her… not too much

    I like both of their music, but this “duet” is ridiculous. You only could really hear her for like 2 lines near the end. She sang back-up I guess, but you’d never notice unless they said something. If they call it a duet or collaboration when she does back-up vocals, then why don’t they credit they non-famous singers who do back-up vocals for everyone.

    taylor was remove off of the album after it was released, so she is no longer on it, the re-record it and its being re-released next month without taylor on it

  • cheslea

    What he said was totally true. Every time something good happens to her she like, “AAHH I can’t believe it. This is the best day of my life!”

    Her performance is perfect.

    “I still like it that she freaks out, but pretty soon she’s gonna have to stop”

    THIS, I agree with. I love Taylor, but this whole “OMG!!! I can’t believe this is happening to me!” thing is getting old. It’s like, whatever award she’s winning at that moment is the most amazing award she’s ever won. And whatever big thing she’s doing, she just can’t believe she’s doing it. Or at least acts that way. I don’t believe at this point that she’s truly as shocked at everything as she makes it seem. I think that to her, she thinks if she’s not over-the-top grateful and amazing at something being done for her or happening to her, that people wouldn’t think she’s appreciative of it.

    I like her but it’s getting annoying. And it’s actually kinda making me like her a little less. Because there’s just no way she’s THAT taken aback by everything. Which means she’s being a tiny bit fake. Or else she’s just not self aware at all.
