Taylor Swift is sick of being mocked, according to an interview with Salon that was posted on March 5. The pop country singer took major issue with what she sees as sexist jokes made at her expense by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at last year’s Golden Globe Awards. The two had jokingly told Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.
“For a female to write about her feelings and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist,” Swift told the magazine.
She also quipped, “There’s a special place in hell for women who do not help other women.”
Amy Poehler told the Hollywood Reporter she felt bad if Taylor was upset and added, “I do agree I am going to hell, but for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
Taylor has been a fixture of gossip magazines since her debut in the music world. She has made a career of dating famous men and then writing songs trashing them afterwards. John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy have all taken turns being her punching bag. Swift’s constant bad luck with men has left many wondering whether or not she is the problem.
