In this month's Vanity Fair, cream colored pony/pop singer Taylor Swift commented on a pretty lighthearted joke that hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made at her expense at last month's Golden Globes. "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women," Swift remarked, inadvertently quoting Madeleine Albright.
It's a strange day when Taylor Swift strikes out at two of the most outspoken feminists and closest female friends in show business, but never mind all that because both women have now responded true to form.
"Aw, I feel bad if she was upset," Amy Poehler told the Hollywood Reporter yesterday. "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."
While Poehler's response includes that special Poehler magic that leaves you feeling better and charmed even though you suspect that she's still making fun of you, Fey's response was a little more along the lines of are you fucking kidding me?
"It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke," she remarked when asked about it on the red carpet of her new movie Admission.
All I can say is that if hell is full of women like Fey and Poehler, be sure and pack your boxed wine before you die, ladies, because Hades is gonna be a muhfuckin' blast.
