Taylor Lautner 'Praying' For John Mayer Ahead Of New 'Speak Now'


Taylor Lautner joked this week that he is “praying” for John Mayer ahead of the release of Taylor Swift’s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)

Swift recently announced that the re-recorded edition of her 2010 album will be out on July 7 and will include “six extra songs I’ve sprung loose from the vault.”

Fans have long speculated that Lautner is the subject of the Speak Now track “Back to December," in which Swift apologizes to an ex who was kind to her. (“I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile / So good to me, so right”).

“Yeah, I feel safe,” the 31-year-old told TODAY.com. "Praying for John Mayer."

Mayer was the inspiration for the less favourable song “Dear John,” in which Swift sings: “I see it all now that you're gone / Don't you think I was too young to be messed with? / The girl in the dress, cried the whole way home, I should've known.”

Lautner and his wife of six months, also named Taylor, co-host The Squeeze podcast, which is available here on iHeartRadio.ca and the app.

Swift recently reflected on Speak Now in an Instagram post. “I first made Speak Now, completely self-written, between the ages of 18 and 20,” she wrote. “The songs that came from this time in my life were marked by their brutal honesty, unfiltered diaristic confessions and wild wistfulness. I love this album because it tells a tale of growing up, flailing, flying and crashing … and living to speak about it.”
