Jessica Hart Got Fired From Victoria’s Secret Because of Taylor Swift
After making comments about Taylor Swift performing at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, model Jessica Hart found herself fired because apparently this seemed like a nicer excuse than, “Ew, you’re 27.” Page Six reports:
Asked at the afterparty at Tao if the pop star could “pull it off” as a lingerie model, Hart told WWD: “No… God bless her heart. I think she’s great… But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit.”
Five days later, Hart — who, unlike Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss, is not one of the company’s elite “supermodels” — tried to make amends, telling Us Weekly, “I adore Taylor Swift and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show… She is a true rock star and she absolutely killed it the other night.”
But the damage was done. Sources say execs at Victoria’s Secret are furious.
In Jessica Hart’s defense, what the hell was Taylor Swift doing there in the first place? Yes, she has an attractively thin body, but she’s also catty as shit and doesn’t put out. Because here’s what’s not happening when men go out shopping for lingerie: “Excuse me, which ones are endorsed by prudes with tight bodies who’ll sing songs about your penis after you break up with them?” Okay, one time I did that, but you get my point.
