Taylor Swift is reportedly not interested in discussing her private relationship with John Meyer in her recent interview with “Glamour” Magazine. “Presumptuous,” is the word Swift used to describe Mayer in the interview with “Glamour,” which will be out in November.
Swift insists that she never identified Mayer as the subject of her song “Dear John,” which details a young girl that feels manipulated and mistreated as a relationship unravels. But, Mayer went on record with “Rolling Stone” in June claiming the song was about him and said that he was “really humiliated” by the lyrics and that they made him feel “terrible” because “I didn’t deserve it.” See [Video] below.
“I never disclose who my songs are about,” Swift reiterates before saying she doesn’t want to know the extent of Mayer’s comments to the music mag.
“I know it wasn’t good, so I don’t want to know,” she says. “I put a high priority on staying happy, and I know what I can’t handle.”
But she does believe the song resonated with fans because the subject matter is so relatable.
“I think that song really hit home with a lot of girls who had been through toxic relationships and had found their way to the other side of it,” she says. “I’ve never looked out while singing a song during a concert to see so many girls crying.”
Another thing she doesn’t want to talk about – her relationship with Conor Kennedy.
“I don’t talk about my personal life in great detail,” she says. “I write about it in my songs, and I feel like you can share enough about your life in your music to let people know what you’re going through.”
As for the singer’s thoughts on Conor’s grandmother Ethel Kennedy: “She’s fantastic. I love her.”
In the new issue of Marie Claire Magazine, which she also covers, she expounded like a country version of an Oxford don on her personal philosophy of love and the quest for Mr. Right.
“[I believe in love]” she droned, “even after it explodes into a million pieces and burns down and you’re standing in a pile of the ash of what it once was thinking, ‘Why did I have to meet this person, why did this have to happen?’ But then, when you make eye contact with someone across the room and it clicks and, bam, you’re there. In love again.”
Swift’s new album, “Red” will be in stores Oct. 22.
