Appearing on the cover of this month’s issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift was asked her thoughts on the famous Golden Globes joke from earlier this year, when hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler kidded the country singer that Michael J. Fox’s young son, who was on stage to hand out awards during the show, should stay away from the singer. When the subject was brought up in the interview, Swift responded to Vanity Fair’s writer, saying “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved, that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,’”.
Taylor, I love you, but you didn’t get it. These two women weren’t putting you down. They weren’t being anti-feminists, a term you refuse to align yourself with. They weren’t really telling men not to date you. They were, on the other hand, making a joke about the FACT that you have sold millions of records full of songs slamming your exes. Have you heard Dear John? What the heck did John Mayer do to you?
The Vanity Fair article, which was released today, has been making its way around the internet and gaining steam for Swift’s comments regarding the Globes hosts. I’m still hoping that this has somehow been misquoted and that Swift was not saying that Fey and Poehler’s joke was worthy of her use of Madeline Albright’s quote. Amy and Tina not helping women? Have you seen Mean Girls? Seriously, have you seen it?!
The Hollywood Reporter was able to reach Poehler today for a comment, with the comedienne telling the mag “Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff. ”
Poehler gets it.Tweet
