"It made me feel terrible," he told the magazine, "because I didn't deserve it. I'm pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do."

Taylor accuses John of having a "sick need to take love away" making her "cry all the way home" after asking, "Don't you think I was too young to be messed with?"

"I was really caught off guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I'd already been dressed down," he said. "I mean, how would you feel if, at the lowest you've ever been, someone kicked you even lower?"

He also told the music magazine that from a fellow singer/songwriter he thought it was "cheap songwriting."

"I think it's abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, 'Wait till he gets a load of this!' " he said. "That's bulls***."

On a brighter note, John's new album, Born and Raised, debuted at No. 1 in six countries and has remained No. 1 on iTunes in 30 territories worldwide.

Now let's just hope he dates ladies his own age from now on.
