Full Story

Taylor Lautner, who briefly dated Taylor Swift in 2009, has expressed his excitement for the re-release of the singer’s 2010 album, Speak Now, which is set to drop this summer. However, Lautner also confessed that he is “praying for John” Mayer, who is believed to be the subject of some of Swift’s lyrics on the album. In a recent interview on SiriusXM’s “The Happy Hour,” the actor clarified that he was joking when he made the remark and acknowledged that it may not have been the wisest thing to say.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift, who is notorious for drawing inspiration from past relationships for her music, has incited controversy in the past with her track “Dear John,” which is believed to be about her brief romance with Mayer. In a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone, Mayer expressed his hurt and humiliation over the song, saying that he “never got an e-mail” or “a phone call” from Swift before it was released. Despite Swift’s lyrics, Mayer maintained that he never mistreated the singer.

Regardless of the true inspiration behind Swift’s songs, fans are eagerly anticipating the re-release of Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) on July 7, with some speculating about whether tracks will be dedicated to her latest rumored beau, Matt Healy. In the meantime, though, Lautner’s slip of the tongue is sure to keep fans entertained — and praying for John Mayer.
