Taylor Swift is never ever going to be BFFs with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. According to a March 5 report by Vanity Fair, Taylor thinks that there’s a special place in hell waiting for mean girls like Golden Globes hosts Tina and Amy. So obviously she’s not over their joke about Michael J. Fox’s son.
During the Globes, Tina Fey mocked Taylor’s recent tendency to date younger guys like Harry Styles and Conor Kennedy by jokingly telling her to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Taylor finally responded to the jab by telling Vanity Fair, “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.’”
It could be argued that Tina and Amy were just trying to keep Taylor from making another relationship mistake, but apparently Taylor thinks women need to help their brethren make mistakes if that's what they're trying to do. So will Taylor go to hell if she refuses to help Lindsay Lohan score some blow? Should she support BFF Selena Gomez if she decides to have unprotected sex with an entire NFL team?
And to be fair, Amy Poehler did offer Taylor Swift some support -- she countered Tina Fey’s warning by telling Taylor to go for it. And Tina also offered Swift some sound advice when she told her to take a little “me time” to learn about herself.
Perhaps Taylor shouldn’t be dissing two women who could help her out in the future. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been in the entertainment industry for a long time, so they could definitely offer Taylor a few tips on how to keep her career alive. Trying to have a sense of humor would probably be a step in the right direction.
Taylor Swift’s “hell” comment was originally uttered by former Clinton Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who probably won’t appreciate the pixie-like pop princess using it so flippantly. Albright has criticized Sarah Palin for misusing the quote before, so it would be hilarious if she issued a strongly-worded response to Swifty doing the same. It’s likely Albright was referring to women helping women with real problems like poverty and abuse, not female politicians and celebrities who are “suffering” because someone hurt their feelings.
If Taylor thinks Amy and Tina should go to hell for making a joke about her love life, does she think she should also burn for calling Camilla Belle an “actress better known for the things that she does on the mattress?” It’s okay for Taylor to slut-shame Camilla, but Tina and Amy can’t joke about her love life. For the record, Taylor’s long list of lovers includes John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Styles, Taylor Lautner, and Conor Kennedy. If she doesn’t want people to talk about her love life, maybe she should try dating guys that aren’t celebrities or the sons of celebrities.
So do you think that Taylor’s “hell” comment will hurt her since Tina and Amy have so many female fans?
