Apparently Taylor Swift wasn't too happy with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler after the gentle jab they took at her during the Golden Globes - specifically, their instruction to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son followed by, "[she could use] some 'me time' to learn about herself," - but instead of writing a song about her feelings like she seems to every other time she experiences them, Swift took to coyly mentioning the incident during a recent interview with Vanity Fair. Tell us, Tay:
"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.'"
Meeeow! OK, just for the record, that is a Madeleine Albright quote, but that doesn't matter - what does matter is that the claws are out, and Swift has clearly kept them just as sharp as the time she sang about how Camilla Belle is an actress but is "...better known for the things that she does/ on the mattress."
We won't be reading about any Swift vs. Poehler/Fey catfights on the cover of Us Weekly anytime soon though - apparently, Poehler feels really bad if Swift's feelings were hurt by the joke, and she spoke to The Hollywood Reporter to apologize. In the best way possible.
"Aw, I feel bad if she was upset," Poehler, who runs a YouTube Channel called Smart Girls that's dedicated to giving advice and empowering young girls, said. "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."
We're not going to say that Poehler wins, because it would be irresponsible to pit two women against each other when there is clearly no feud.
