December 13 is a special day for Swifties because it’s Taylor Swift’s birthday. And although her celebrity friends a.k.a. “squad” have been celebrating her special day on social media, leaving cute and sweet messages for the “Bad Blood” singer, there’s one celebrity who appears to be unimpressed, in fact, pissed about this day – John Mayer.
At about 10:45 P.M., the “Why Georgia” singer Tweeted something that may have been a shade towards Swift, his ex-girlfriend.
“Tuesday, December 13 may be the lamest day of the year, conceptually,” the singer wrote.
Not long after, Mayer reportedly deleted the tweet, explaining that he wasn’t shading anyone.
“NOPE. No. Nuh-uh. People I am 39. I am deleting those tweets. Come right at me for doing so. Absolutely no shade,” Mayer said.
Whether or not he was actually dissing Swift on her 27th birthday, fans can’t be blamed for suspecting so, especially because Mayer’s brief relationship with the “Blank Space” singer in 2009 did not end well, inspiring Swift to pen the song, “Dear John.”
This resulted into a bigger rift between Swift and Mayer. In A Rolling Stone interview, Mayer called Swift’s songwriting “cheap.”
“I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting,” he said. “I know she’s the biggest thing in the world, and I’m not trying to sink anybody’s ship, but I think it’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait till he gets a load of this!’ That’s bulls–t.”
Mayer also said that he had no idea Swift was writing a song about their 3-month relationship and that it humiliated him.
“I never got an email. I never got a phone call,” he told the magazine. “I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I’d already been dressed down. I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you’ve ever been, someone kicked you even lower?”
