John Mayer & Taylor Swift dating rumors continue to grow

Z100's Jingle Ball 2009 - Show

Well, we have even more evidence that Taylor Swift is making a huge mistake with her dating life. As we’ve reported before, it’s looking more and more like Swifty dumped Taylor Lautner and began quietly, secretly dating John Mayer, douche extraordinaire. The latest evidence comes out of Nashville, where Mayer and Keith Urban were filming an episode of VH1’s Crossroads, and Taylor came to Nashville to sing a few songs or something. While Mayer and Swift were in Nashville, it seems they went out on another date:

Last night John Mayer was in Nashville for the Crossroads taping with Keith Urban. More on how that went down later.

Taylor Swift attended amid speculation that she and Mayer are now dating. My sources tell me she was backstage before the show, totally crushing on him, very “smitten”, flirting, like a young girl intoxicated by attraction to an older man, too young to separate artistry from douchery.

On Monday night, Taylor and Mayer went out for dinner with a large group. I’m told this is how she gets around her mom. Momma Swift is a wary parent and some say Taylor arranges their time together in crowds so as not to hear it from her mom later on. There are some rumours that John was seen at her place afterwards. This has not been substantiated.

At the performance however her affection for him was undeniable. She was cheering enthusiastically in the audience, making hand hearts at him constantly, and the buzz among industry insiders and crew is that they’re definitely dating. Some have even told me that this is why she called it off with Taylor Lautner. Because while there was no spark with Tom Cruise’s mini me, she was compelled to explore the intensity of her feelings for John.

As you can imagine, for squeaky clean TSwizzle, a hook up with Mayer, currently extolling the virtues of masturbation in the pages of Rolling Stone, is problematic for her image. It remains to be seen then how her team will manage the progression of this relationship.

Kanye was nothing. Nothing compared to how this dicksplash could destroy her. Then again, she’s young. And it happens. We are/were all due for a transformational devastating affair. At 20, for Taylor, it’s only a matter of time. It’s just really too bad it could be him. Because on a romantic resume, John Mayer is a straight up smear.

Good Lord, I hope Swifty’s mom nips this in the bud. But that might not work – I know that at that age – well, younger actually, hearing that mom didn’t approve of a dude made him more exotic. What needs to happen is for Swifty’s friends, her business team, and the public at large to tell Swifty unequivocally that a dalliance with Mayer would ruin her reputation, and she would never be able to wash the stench of smug douche off.

Don’t believe me about Mayer? Lainey went on to describe the scene at the Crossroads taping:

The musicians had plenty of opportunity to prep. Of course they did. As the two headliners, they’re pampered and coddled, and nothing happens until they are ready. So as they take their places, a production member took to the stage to explain to the audience how the show was being filmed. This was told to me and I’m passing it to you to illustrate that Mayer had more than enough time to get set.

Once the audience had been briefed, they were ready to begin. And Keith began. And as soon as he began, John Mayer had to stop him. To the effect of: “I don’t want to be that guy who has to change his guitar strap but I’m using the blue one and I have to have the green one”. Or green to blue. And so it continued. A seemingly endless stream of consciousness as though the people sitting there actually cared about all the profundity spewing from his mouth. This however did not seem to faze Taylor Swift. Oh honey…

As such, I’m hearing that John and Keith did not exactly spark the kind of chemistry that everyone was hoping for. Because, ultimately, it’s always the John Mayer Show. My sources tell me Keith was not comfortable. And this of course makes a tour rather tricky.

[From Lainey Gossip]

Oh, yes. My guess is that Mayer still fancies himself a comedian, and he still thinks that whatever farts out of his mouth is so profound, so inherently hysterical, so “deep” that us mere peasants cannot even fathom the hilarity and profundity. Nevermind that he’s racist. Nevermind that when an interview doesn’t go his way, he threatens sodomy. Nevermind that Mayer might also have his eye on Kate Hudson. Actually, that last one might work. Swifty won’t like it if Mayer has his eye on another blonde. Somebody tell her!

    What IS it with this guy? Jeez

  2. SageAdvice says:

    Run away, Swifty, run away. Nothing good can come from anything to do with this useless, douchey, pathetic loser.

  3. pebbles says:

    maybe it’s an artistic endeavor on Taylor’s behalf….can you imagine the songs that will spring forth from this unholy union?

  4. Bete says:

    She may as well date Kanye. That, and he boned Aniston and Simpson.It’s not a list I’d want to be included in. He fancies himself as some kind of rock god, when all he does is Tweet all day like Perez Hilton.

  5. snowball says:

    I know she’s young and actually dated one of those Jonas people, but really. Is she honestly that stupid? Really? Has anyone told the dumb girl about his Twitter diarrhea? Forget Kanye, she might as well hop on the Dennis Rodman express.

    I love Keith. It doesn’t surprise me at all that Mayer acted like the pig that he is and that Keith wasn’t exactly fond of the dink.

  6. LindyLou says:

    It totally baffles me how this guy keeps getting all these beautiful women to bed. I thinks he’s totally FUGLY and when combined with the way he treats women….WTF?? I just don’t get it.

  7. flutters says:

    IMO this is nothing more publicity dating. Swift’s already done that with Lautner. Mayer has never met a publicity opportunity he didn’t embrace. The last time Swift was in a PR relationship it was when her album was being rereleased. Now it’s Grammy time. Mayer’s on the Rolling Stone cover still dropping Jennifer Aniston’s name for attention. I don’t think it’s a coincidence. This works to get Swift and Mayer major blog buzz.

  8. Iggles says:

    I don’t like Taylor Swift. This story is hilarious. Wrong, I know! But hey, she’s so holier than thou, selling the wholesome image. She dumps Taylor L for the king of musical pop douches. She’ll learn from this why it’s a good idea to stay away from “bad boys”.

    Rude, immature, and self obsessed is NOT charming! Nor are those qualities what you want in a partner!

  9. Iggles says:

    @ flutters:
    “Now it’s Grammy time. Mayer’s on the Rolling Stone cover still dropping Jennifer Aniston’s name for attention. I don’t think it’s a coincidence. This works to get Swift and Mayer major blog buzz.”

    Taylor’s quite young. I don’t think she could adequately fake her enthusiasm for John.

    John has ulterior motives for sure! I wonder what Aniston things about his post break up name drop. She done it to Brad so many times. Wonder what it’s like for the shoe to be on the other foot!

  10. snowball says:

    @ Iggles – I really doubt she cares and I’m pretty sure Brad never cared about her post-marriage dates either.

  11. princess pea says:

    It makes a lot of sense to me.

    Lautner was boring as watching paint dry. You can see it in his vapid grin; he reminds me too much of Little Tom Cruise. Taylor’s young, and in just the right phase of her life to be drawn to exciting men, instead of boys, with a side of dirty thrown in. Mayer, on the other hand, is a man facing the prospect of a hot (legal) young babe wanting to sleep with him.

  12. PJ says:

    It could be a fling — and the publicity doesn’t hurt, either. I don’t see any future in it, but a fling can be fun for a while.

  13. flutters says:


    “Taylor’s quite young. I don’t think she could adequately fake her enthusiasm for John.”

    Oh but have you seen Taylor Swift fake surprise at some extremely predictable award wins? I’m not talking about big award ones, more like some really obvious ones everyone knew about including her publicist. She’s got her routine down. It goes something like this: she claps her hands over her mouth which is hanging wide open, then she bends her knees, shakes her head in “disbelief,” and hugs the person next to her. It’s not very convincing. Plus she’s already done the showmance thing recently with Taylor Lautner.

    Swift and Mayer are extremely smart self-marketers. Swift doesn’t have the douchiness weighing her down obviously but Mayer doesn’t seem to consider douchiness a bad thing for himself. I absolutely do not think they are above fanning showmance rumors for the sake of buzz.

  14. Samantha says:

    Watch…they are going to get married and have lots of little “MayTays” running around and they will last for years and years, JUST to spite all of us.

  15. wow says:

    The only future I want to see with these two is a collaboration in music. More of that, please.

    The last picture of them up thread is adorable. But yeah, romantically she would be in awe of him and he would end up breaking her heart.

  16. Abby says:

    insist on some pre-sex testing, taylor… otherwise you’re asking for a lot more than just a smear on your wholesome image. john is dirty in every sense of the word! ew.

  17. Ally says:

    @Samantha: LOL, and I think you should copyright MayTay now.

  18. San says:

    Douche bag Mayer is far worst than Kanye. I have no respect for Taylor for giving this disgusting jerk 2 minutes. Only women that have low self esteem issues date that jerk.

  19. Iggles says:

    @ snowball – I was talking about the name drop, i.e. using you’re ex’s name when you’re promoting something. She’s done that to Brad a lot. Now Mayer is using her name to promote himself.

    @ flutters – Good point. Taylor is pretty fake. Makes me wonder what will come of this..

  20. Camille says:

    JM can have Kate HUdson, but LEAVE SWIFTY ALONE!

    @Iggles, she probably loves it. It means more tab column inches after all. I doubt it bothers her at all.

  21. Cinderella says:

    If Taylor thought she had a rough break- up with Joe Jonas, she has no idea.

  22. Amy says:

    I think they are both annoying. Mayer won’t shut up about how he is so misunderstood. She kept going on and on about how Joe Jonas broke up with her over text message. They both like the spotlight so maybe they are perfect for each other.

  23. Annie says:

    I highly doubt this is true. She respects him as an artists. That’s it! STAY AWAY FROM THE DOUCHE! Go Taylor.

  24. la chica says:

    maybe she has the kind of vagina he’s been looking for (cf., Rolling Stone cover article).

  25. Cat says:

    Maybe I shouldn’t be thinking this, but I wonder if she’s still a virgin and if so, she’s going to give it up to JM. I mean, can you imagine???? Poor kid will be scarred for life! Ew, shudder.

  26. He's not worth it! says:

    Can you imagine him hangin with her besties, Gomez and Jonas? I mean she can’t even legally drink. She may be 20, but she looks and acts more like 16. He’s sick. I don’t blame her, but he’s old enough to know better. She’s America’s sweetheart and he’s the vilest person I’ve ever heard speak.

  27. Jane says:

    Come on girls, we’ve all been 20 years old and dated the wrong guy. He’ll end up break her heart and she’ll write a get a whole album out of it… and we all know heartbreak inspires the best music.

  28. noonoo says:

    Actually, I imagine that he would be extremely attractive to a 20 yr old. he IS confident and verbally quick and into the sort of high jinks and fun (not talking sexulaly here) that college students would like. In fact, I think dating a 20 yr old is probably a good idea. No tears about lack of deep commitment or babies, just good times…and we all know he would LOVE the adoration from Taylor and the publicity!

  29. Aleisha says:

    Oh that photo of them both (where they are standing close and he has his arm around her) shows how much of a sexual zing is going on between them.

    Cant you see that’s Mayer’s “she wants me bad and I am a hot sexy sex god” sexy look?? lol

    They are soooooo going to have a li’l ole fling (or already have by the looks of it)….

    Swifty isnt as wholesome as her image makes her out to be…. she seems nice, but it’s just an image…

  30. C says:

    I think With Taylor and Taylor is just a publicity stunt for their coming film. She probably had a crush on Mayer as most of the girls on her age but I doubt if Mayer is unto her. Mayer is not serious when it comes to love affair. He is like afraid of any commitment, a bit of like DiCaprio. It will die down as quickly as like Mayer-Jen’s affair.

  31. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    It has occurred to me that he should be referred to as “Hollywood’s Dildo” from this point.

    It seems more fitting, considering how he’s used.

    Thank you.

  32. KayP13 says:

    Why is everyone so hard on John Mayer? Isn’t the important thing that he makes incredible music?

    Honestly, who cares what Taylor Swift and John Mayer want to do with their lives? Who are we to judge?
    People need to realize that its not up to them to control celebrities, and that even celebrities deserve to be happy with whoever they want to be with.
