Taylor Swift Dishes on 'Dear John'

Taylor Swift Dishes on 'Dear John'

Taylor Swift gives Ellen DeGeneres a side hug as she tapes an appearance on the show on Thursday afternoon (October 28) in Los Angeles.

The 20-year-old “Speak Now” singer opened up about the song “Dear John,” which is rumored to be her take on her relationship with John Mayer.

Ellen asked, “Ok great, we know the answer now. It’s about him (John Mayer.) Well, you didn’t dispute it so obviously…”

T added on, “The thing is with my career and I have been fortunate enough to have success. I’ve had a few main goals and priorities. If I was lucky enough to continue to get to do this…Those two goals were to in spite of success always remain the same person and in spite of success remain the same songwriter.

“When I was 12 years-old I started writing songs about my life and just because people are now kind of more interested in the subject material of those songs a little more than when I was 12. I’m still going to continue to write about my life. I guess people are going to continue to speculate about it and I’m going to continue to never tell them who the song is about.”

Taylor will be performing “Mine” and “You Belong With Me” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, November 1st. Bigger pic inside…

  • BBJ

    tisdale you’re the one that has issues. Stop hating on someone you don’t even know. Go get help.

  • Ken

    @tisdale: Well you got my attention now didn’t you?

    I know, she seems to be attention seeking

  • Amy

    If Taylor wanted attention, she would take half-naked pics of herself and strip in magazines and dance on poles (aka Miley Cyrus). But she already has the attention of her fans as evidenced by the fact that her new album “Speak Now” is about to sell a million copies in one week…the BIGGEST album of the year. Go Tay!

  • Jenny

    What’s funny about these idiots saying she wants attention is that they’re giving her attention by responding to this article. Not very smart are you? I think they’re just jealous that she’s landing all these HOT men that they could never get in their dreams. Haha.

    okayy,taylor swift really deserves all the blessings she receives. But i really wander if she really had a relationship with john mayer??

  • headstrong.

    @Amy: why you have to bring miley on this?
    if she did not want that attention why she named a song ‘Dear John’ or why s he gives clues on her album to know who the song is about?
    she knows people are going to speculate. she know shes gonna get attention for that.

  • headstrong.

    im obsessed with ‘Haunted’ i love that song and back to december.

  • ChaSe lauren

    @headstrong.: ohmygoodness, haunted, I love the begining of that song. the whole song really but the begining is just so epic. it doesnt really sound like a taylor song but then she starts singing and its just great.
    and to EVERYONE ELSE, um of course shes going to get attention… shes on a talk show. thats the point. and its not for her to get noticed, its for her to promote her album. theres not an artist out there who doesnt go on talk shows when theyre trying to sell albums or movies.

  • Rachel

    I love back to december

  • My Name

    @rosiiee: I totally agree. I love Taylor Swift, but I get the feeling that John was just trying to be a supportive friend and she read more into it and thought they were in a “relationship”.

    You can love taylor swift, why put down miley ? If you like to compare: Miley has the body to look hot, taylor swift does NOT. Miley has a boy friend at one period of time in real life. How many guys she writes songs about at her Speak Now. Look who is real ” slut”. hahaha. Anyway, I hope taylor swift does less obvious ” kiss and tell”, spill the dirty from her relationship to the public without hurting others.

    same thing I wonder. In this song she doesn’t really say if she had a relationship or what. I am a huge fan and I love learning new things about her. I love you Taylor Swift:)

  • http://duhhhhhhhh Duhhhhh

    Tay is contradicting herself already! She says that she’s not going to say who her songs are about, but her song is titled, ‘DEAR JOHN!!!!!!!’ and she hints about the age difference????? She’s not too smart. She’s still a little girl, trying her best to be sophisticated, but is failing miserably. She goofed up badly. She now looks like even more of a little girl. The song is obviously about Mayer.
