Listening to Mama and the Mooks this morning., and they made (I know, it happens!) a joke, that Taylor Swift already has a new boyfriend, and he should run before he becomes a song, like John Mayer.
This confuzzed me - I do not pay a lot of attention to popular culture, although one can't help but pick up on a few things, and I remember the Swift/Mayer story, how cute lil' Taylor dated big bad player Mayer and he USED HER UP, leaving her with no self-esteem, and he shaved her pet hamster, and gave her earrings in the wrong shade of pink, broke her heart, crumbling it like feta cheese, and all she got out of it was a break-up song, putting her feelings to the world, which swiftly (seewhatIdidtherenevermind) condemned him as Worse Than Hitler and he dresses funny and wears too much Axe Landwonder Body Spray.
Ignoring the fact that he had nailed everyone in Hollywood, and their agents. And that if anyone else had mad gittar skilz and had written the fucking dreadful Body Wonderland Song, they'd be doing the same damn thing, cultivating new and interesting STDs. And that the same anyone else would be unlikely to stop humping his happy quadrant through the Hollywood Hills until aforesaid fucking dreadful Bodyland Wonder song was off the adult contemporary charts. Wevs.
Well, it seems that young Ms. Swift is going through another horrible heartbreak, hamster, feta, etc., and has written another song. But, I hypothesize, that if the joke is now that Ms. Swift's new young man should run, run like the wind, run like a shaved hamster on a wheel, that some have noticed her habit of hooking up to get song material. Now. That is not an issue, at all. More power to her, some people like her music, I assume, I don't like pop country so I don't know, but the breakup songs, both bittersweet and savagely hostile, written by the Beatles dwarf Ms. Swift's output, so this has been going on for a while. I have a different point.
Isn't it a wonderbodylandful irony that it was Taylor Swift, America's SweetHeart™, who made John Mayer, America's Male Slut®, into the hapless schmuck?
