It’s safe to say Taylor Swift’s appetite for attention is insatiable and this week’s stunt further proves that statement. In the April issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift inferred that both Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are going to hell for making comments regarding Swift’s love life at the Golden Globes. Throughout the award show, both Poehler and Fey were poking fun at themselves and celebrities in attendance all in good-hearted fun because that’s their job: to be funny.
It comes at no surprise that Swift got a little offended, but to quote Madeleine Albright via Katie Couric, “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women” is a little dramatic, yes?
The pop star also told Vanity Fair that she’s not the serial dater she appears to the public. In fact, since 2010, Swift claims she has only date two guys and that she’s fully aware of how entertaining her relationships are to people.
An important aspect of Taylor Swift’s songwriting is that she expresses her feelings in a confessional way, which is something that many, if not all musicians can get behind. However, amongst all the other famous people who were also poked fun at during the Golden Globes, what compelled her to fire back? Perhaps she is tired of not being taken as a “serious artist”? Who knows.
What we do know is that Amy Poehler responded by saying, “I feel bad if she was upset… I do agree I am going to hell, but for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”
