In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift‘s asked about Tina Fey and Amy Poehler cracking an innocent joke at the Golden Globes about her dating Michael J. Fox‘s son. It was harmless and should’ve been taken in stride, so naturally Taylor Swift cried about it and dropped this way out-of-proportion quote Katie Couric once told her: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” Fortunately, for us, Tina and Amy each responded with two to three sentences that are way more entertaining than anything Taylor Swift will ever write about getting dumped again. So here’s Amy who was reached for comment first by The Hollywood Reporter:
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. 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.”
And Tina who Entertainment Tonight got a hold of:
“If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron. I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke.”
And while both of those responses were awesome (Who doesn’t enjoy a quote that suggests James Cameron is more likely to burst into tear than Taylor Swift?), I like how neither one pointed out Taylor Swift thinks making a joke about her serial dating should damn a person to burning in eternal hellfire. Which makes you wonder how she reacts to actual offenses like, oh I dunno, say being dumped by Jake Gyllenhaal who lied about being heterosexual. Because where do you go after playing the Hell card? Forcing them to listen to your albums? That just seems too far. Like Hitler but you also found out he’s a pedophile far.
