Taylor Swift begs fans to leave John Mayer alone as she prepares to re-drop epic diss track

Swift told her fans that they don't need to defend her over a song she wrote '14 million years ago'.

With the release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) only just around the corner, Taylor Swift has asked her fans at The Eras Tour in Minneapolis over the weekend to show ‘kindness and gentleness' across the internet.

Swift made the announcement on stage before singing her surprise song of the night ‘Dear John’, a song from her 2010 Speak Now album which fans suspect is about her relationship with John Mayer.

“​​What I’m trying to say is I’m putting this album out because I want to own my own music,” said Swift who is currently re-recording her music to have full ownership over her songs.

“I’m not putting this album out so that you can defend me on the internet against someone you think I might have written a song about 14 million years ago.”

Although the 12-time Grammy winner didn't mention Mayer by name, the Swifties have done their detective work and believe that the song, which shares a name with her ex-lover, is about Swift and Mayer’s relationship.

“I’m 33 years old. I don’t care about anything that happened to me when I was 19,” said Swift with her acoustic guitar in hand.

Swift and Mayer began dating back in late 2009, when Swift was 19 and Mayer was 32, they broke up in mid-2010, with ‘Dear John’ being released in October 2010.

Back in 2012, Mayer spoke out about the song in a Rolling Stone interview, saying he felt 'humiliated' and 'terrible'.

He referred to the song as 'like the last email you would ever send to someone you used to be in a relationship with'.

Keen fans also believed that Mayer’s 2013 song ‘Paper Dolls’ was written in response to Swift and ‘Dear John’.

Swift's call for goodwill comes after her fans previously flooded the internet when she released Red (Taylor’s Version) with TikToks and tweets about Jake Gyllenhaal, who Swifties believe sad-girl-anthem ‘All Too Well’ (10 minute version) is about.

As a result, Gyllenhaal was forced to turn off his instagram comments.

“I do not care. We have all grown up. We’re good,” concluded Swift before continuing on with her show.
