Oh no she did NOT!!! Taylor Swift is featured on the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine and in her coverstory interview she goes after Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who DARED to poke a little fun at Swift and her dating practices. For some reason, Taylor took their good natured ribbing super seriously and went so far as to refer to Tina and Amy as “mean girls” who belong in Hell. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! OK, so even Taylor Swift‘s attempt to start a celebrity feud is too saccharine to be taken seriously but still … is she really going after Tina and Amy? Like, for real? Click below to read excerpts from her VF interview and you be the judge.
In an profile in this month’s Vanity Fair, Swift said Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s Golden Globes comedy routine making fun of her love life made them “mean girls,” in her eyes, and using a quote Katie Couric gave her, said, “There’s a special place in hell reserved for women who don’t help other women.” Whoa! Taylor, wait a minute. What exactly did Tina and Amy say? It turns out that Fey already made an apology. The Golden Globes were a while back, after all, in January. “I just feel like it was just a little joke, like two of your aunts, two of your old lady aunts teasing you at the Thanksgiving table, that’s all it was,” Fey said at the SAG Awards. Let’s examine the actual … evidence from the Golden Globes. After Lena Dunham thanked Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for “getting her through middle school,” in her acceptance speech for best comedic actress, Fey and Poehler made light of being older than Dunham, acting like they were drinking away their sorrows. Perhaps playing on the jealous of the successful younger woman trope, Fey said, “You know what Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” mocking Swift’s many high-profile relationships and the confessional songs that result. That’s it. That’s all she said. Well, actually, she added, “No, she needs some me time to learn about herself.” That was the extent of the Taylor Swift mock-a-thon. What do you think? Does Taylor Swift have a right to be this upset over these comments? For someone who has been so successful at turning her private life into a major songwriting career (and yes, we love “Trouble”) it might be a good idea not to take yourself so seriously. Also, it’s hard to believe that out of all the people out there who may have made a Taylor Swift joke, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are the ones that get called out for it.
LOL. This is just … the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard. I love the point made above, of ALL the people who have poked fun at Taylor Swift (some innocent, some malicious), she decides to go after Tina Fey and Amy Poehler? The only thing more ridiculous than going after two of the funniest AND sweetest comedians in the biz is the reason why. Their playful joking about Taylor and Michael J. Fox‘s son was barely a joke! IMHO, this is a huge misstep for Taylor Swift. She may have been making a play for sympathy or something but she sounds like an idiot, to be honest. Trust me, I totally get that Taylor has run out of interesting things to talk about in interviews but attempts to start feuds with other women just comes across as pathetic. Taylor, get a grip … seriously.
