Taylor Swift has some fighting words for Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and sexist critics in the media. The country singer graces the April 2013 cover of Vanity Fair magazine. Vanity Fair published the cover photo and the interview on March 5. In the magazine, Taylor fights back about her critics and her dating life.
Swift says that she's fed up with how the media scrutinizes every detail of her love life. She hates when the media assumes she's dating a guy just because she was seen hugging him. Swift also admitted that she's exactly dated two guys since the year 2010.
The guys the singer dated that year were Connor Kennedy and Harry Styles. She didn't say if she also dated actor Jake Gyllenhaal that same year.
Swift said that the stories written about her are "fictional" and "sexist." She also had some fighting words for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. She wasn't amused by their lighthearted joke at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards. She had some harsh words for the comediennes:
"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,' " Swift says.
The 23-year-old says that people need to get over the fact that she writes songs about her relationships. She hates getting knocked down when male musicians have done the same thing for years.
Taylor Swift has a carefully crafted image. In her music videos, she often portrays herself as a women scorned. Some believe her management is very careful about guarding her virginal image. The singer seems to be unaware of how it's affecting her popularity. The April 2013 issue of Vanity Fair will be available on newsstands on Thursday, March 7.
