Breakups are never pretty but when the world is watching, some hurtful things can be said and done and don’t go unnoticed by the public at large. More often than not, retaliatory behavior just seems trashy. This list takes a look at those celebs who have publicly humiliated their exes to satisfy their own ego lust.
7. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift has had some pretty epic breakups that always seem to get documented in vengeful lyrics. After Taylor broke up with song man John Mayer, she released the song “Dear John” that openly criticized Mayer for taking advantage of her youthful naiveté. “Don’t you think 19s too young to be played by your dark, twisted games?” Swift was 19 and Mayer was 31 when they started dating. In response, Mayer is said to have released “Paper Doll” where he cooed, “You’re like 22 girls in one,” most likely a dig at Taylor’s song “22,” and of course, the obvious allusion of the title to a faceless girl that can be dressed up but still remains flat. Burn!
