Pricey John, maybe stick to Instagram? Taylor Swift’s feisty fanbase has flooded John Mayer’s feedback on his first two TikToks with the lyrics to a 2010 ballad from her album Speak Now, which they imagine is about their rumored relationship. The 43-year-old posted his first TikTok yesterday — a video the place he doesn’t know how one can flip the digicam — and, sadly for him, it appears to have ended up on the “For You” web page of Swifites worldwide. “You’re not protected right here, John,” the highest remark at present reads. Just a few hours later, he posted one other video of himself nodding alongside to silence with the caption “POV: You’re berating me, and I’m listening to you out.” The Swifties didn’t get up for amicable understanding, although. “Hi there mr previous man sufferer complicated,” one remark with over 11K likes reads. A lot of the feedback are totally different lyrics from “Pricey John,” like “Don’t you suppose 19’s too younger to be performed by your darkish twisted video games?” and “She lived in your chess recreation, however you modified the principles on a regular basis.” Others had been simply plain ol’ reads. “POV: a person earlier than he gaslights you,” one Swiftie doesn’t maintain again.
Swift and Mayer have by no means confirmed their relationship, which was rumored to have spanned 2009 and 2010, when she was 19 and he was 32. (Followers within the feedback are wanting to level out that she nonetheless isn’t as previous as he was after they allegedly dated, having simply turned 31 in December.) Whereas Swift lets her music do the speaking, one other certainly one of John Mayer’s many famous exes, Jessica Simpson, described him as “poisonous” in her memoir, Open Book, final 12 months. Taylor Swift’s followers hold her exes in examine for her, and if that is how the Swifties act unprovoked, John Mayer ought to be very afraid of the “Pricey John” re-release.
