Swift Slams Tina Fey For Golden Globes Joke
The Golden Globes may be months behind us, but Taylor Swift is still sore about a jab made at her expense by comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Swift, who’s song “Safe & Sound” lost to Adele’s “Skyfall” for best original song at the awards show, was mocked by the two hosts over her many publicized relationships.
“You know what Taylor Swift, you stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” said Fey, feigning drunkenness on-stage at the Globes. Sam Fox was serving as Mr. Golden Globes for the award ceremony.
Poehler suggested that perhaps Swift should “just go for it,” but Fey countered that the pop star “needs some ‘me’ time to learn about herself.”
Now, in a new interview with Vanity Fair, Swift reveals that she resents the picture of her that is presented in tabloid magazines. She claims the magazines will “turn you into a fictional character,” which is presumably what Fey and Poehler were basing their joke on.
Swift told Vanity Fair that Fey’s joke reminded her of something Katie Couric had told her: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
Both Poehler and Fey have responded to Swift’s comment. Poehler told The Hollywood Reporter that she feels bad if Swift was upset, and “That being said, I do agree I am going to hell.” Fey told Entertainment Tonight that it was a “lighthearted joke” and that other jokes she made that night had more punch.
