Vanity Fair revealed that their April cover girl is none-other than Taylor Swift on Tuesday. The magazine also released a preview of the accompanying interview to help promote the issue. Just within that snippet was the key to make the internet turn on the country singer. Swift unwisely decided to comment on the time funny ladies and rulers of the world Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a joke about her at this year’s Golden Globes.
Taylor was quoted as saying: “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.’”
One, that’s a quote from famed feminist Madeleine Albright and two, no one messes with Poehler and Fey, and I mean no one. Because this is the kind of class you’ll be met with:
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset,” Poehler told the Hollywood Reporter. “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. ”
“If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron,” said Fey to ETOnline.com. “I did not see that one coming. It was a joke, it was a lighthearted joke.”
For the record, if Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a joke about me, I would be crying because a) they knew of my existence and b) how potentially awesome that joke was.
Anyways, if Amy Poehler is going to hell for making fun of Taylor Swift or tax stuff, there should also be special places in Hades’ underworld for people who:
… put their bags on an empty seat when the bus is full
… don’t squeeze the toothpaste from the bottom of the tube
… say bagel,
… kill off your favourite TV characters
… hate cats
Yeah, we read your comments.
… don’t replace the toilet rolls
… leave passive aggressive notes everywhere
… are perpetually attached to their phone
… take reality show seriously
… send death threats on Twitter
… don’t like Adele
Oh, shit. We came full circle. How did that happen? I guess I’ll see you all there! *HIGH FIVE*
