Taylor Swift is firing back at Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for the joke they made at her expense during January’s Golden Globes. In an interview with “Vanity Fair,” the country star didn’t address them directly, but instead quoted something that broadcast vet Katie Couric once told her — “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” Taylor did say that she’s used to her love life being mocked in the press, but feels it’s “frankly a little sexist” that the media portrays her as “some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend” when all she does is write about her feelings like any other artist. The joke in question was over Fey and Poehler insisting that she “stay away” from Michael J. Fox’s son.
Poehler responded to Taylor’s comments in a statement to “The Hollywood Reporter.” She apologized and said she does feel bad if Taylor found the joke upsetting. Poehler continued, saying, “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.”
