Is John Mayer’s Song ‘Paper Doll’ About Taylor Swift?


Mayer Swift

Oh Taylor, did you bring this upon yourself? Taylor Swift is well known for her usual dating cycle – date current it-boy, happy honeymoon times, the messy break up and bam there’s the storyline for her next single. Of course it is then followed by an uproar of pro-Taylor and anti-Taylor backlash and a constant denial battle between the starlet and the media. But this time the tables may have turned. John Mayer, aka the ex-bf, has snapped back with his latest single, “Paper Doll” and there are rumours that this one is a direct comeback to Taylor’s song, “Dear John” which is allegedly about their now-ended relationship.

As always, the comments section of the video clip on Youtube is an entertaining read.

“Paper Doll” appears on both the Top 30 Singapore and Philippines charts this week and is out now.
