John Mayer receives death threats after new Taylor Swift album: This is how the singer has hung her ex-boyfriends out for 15 years

‘Do you really hope I die?’

[display-posts orderby="comment_count"]

That’s how John Mayer had to respond when a dedicated Taylor Swift fan recently wrote to him on Instagram asking him to ‘fuck herself’ before proclaiming that she hoped he would be strangled and die.

The 44-year-old musician felt compelled to respond, he wrote, because he had received piles of similar messages in recent days.

And he’s probably only seen the tip of the iceberg. Like Calvin Harris, Harry Styles, Tom Hiddleston and Taylor Swift’s other famous ex-girlfriends probably have too.

John Mayer and Taylor Swift dated from November 2009 to February 2010. They had previously made the song 'Half of my Heart' together.  Here they are seen in December 2009.

To understand why, we must turn the clock back to 2019, when celebrity manager and talent scout Scooter Braun acquired Taylor Swift’s former record company Big Machine – and in the same embrace acquired the rights to the singer’s first six albums.

It got a furious Taylor Swift to take her songs back by re-recording them all. So far, it has become a re-release of ‘Fearless’ from 2008 as well as ‘Red’ from 2012, which was released in its updated version this weekend.

Thus, the 31-year-old world star rips back into old feelings and relationships. Relationships with famous men that she was not afraid to hang out with at the time.

Taylor Swift’s first known boyfriend was Disney star and ‘The Jonas Brothers’ singer Joe Jonas, whom she dated for three months in 2008 before, according to the singer, calling and hitting the phone.

‘I looked at the list of calls and the call had lasted 27 seconds. It almost has to be a record, “Taylor Swift said sarcastically as she later guest-starred on ‘The Ellen Show’.

There are many things that suggest that much of the ‘Fearless’ album is dedicated to Joe Jonas – not least because the intro to ‘Forever & Always’ is exactly 27 seconds long and because Taylor Swift sings ‘Mr.’ exactly 27 times in the song ‘Mr. Perfectly Fine ‘, which was written for the 13-year-old album, but was only released on re-release recently.

If you are not a dedicated Taylor Swift fan, you might think it is a sought after theory. It can also be quite random. But nothing in the notoriously staging singer’s universe is random.

For example, since the 2006 debut album, Taylor Swift has kept secret messages in the booklet for the CD, which could be found by putting all capital letters together into one sentence. For the song ‘You’re Not Sorry’, for example, you can read ‘She can have you’ (‘She can just have you’, ed.), Which is apparently a greeting to the actress Camilla Belle, who started dating Joe Jonas shortly after his and Taylor Swift’s breakup.

But not all messages are hidden between the lines. On the album ‘Red’, which is the latest that has been re-recorded, countless greetings are sung to the actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Best known is the story of the famous scarf that BT was able to roll out recently. The 31-year-old singer and nine-year-old actress were lovers for three months in 2010, and in the song ‘All Too Well’, Taylor Swift sings about how she forgot her scarf in his sister’s house and that he still has it that day Today.

At the same time, you can see in old paparazzo photos how Taylor Swift, Jake Gyllenhaal and his big sister, the actress Maggie Gyllenhaal, go for a walk together, where she is wearing a blue scarf with red and white stripes.

A scarf exactly like one that Jake Gyllenhaal has since been spotted with.

When the couple separated in December 2010, sources close to the singer said the drop had been that Jake Gyllenhaal had not turned up for the girlfriend’s birthday on December 13 as promised.

And that story was subsequently unfolded in the song ‘The Moment I Knew’. And again on the remake of ‘All Too Well’, which this weekend came out in an impressive ten minute long version with lines of text that had originally been sifted from in 2012.

Taylor Swift has not yet revealed which album she will re-record as the next. But actors Taylor Lautner and Tom Hiddleston, as well as musicians John Mayer, Harry Styles and Calvin Harris, may well begin to prepare for the fact that they will soon be shooting again.

From March 2015 to June 2016, Taylor Swift was in a relationship with producer Calvin Harris.  The same month that they parted ways, she began a very public relationship with actor Tom Hiddleston (pictured), which, however, lasted only three months.

It has long been a standing joke that Taylor Swift will have to break up with her famous boyfriends to scrape material together for a new album.

So far, however, she has shut up the critics by releasing as many as four albums since meeting her current boyfriend, British actor Joe Alwyn, in 2016.

But maybe there is still a bit about it. For as she sings in the song ‘I Bet You Think About Me’, which was written for Jake Gyllenhaal in 2012, but only released the other day:

‘I bet you think about me when you say: ‘Oh my god, she’s insane, she wrote a song about me’.’
