You’d think that Taylor Swift would get offended by recent outrageous award show hosts Ricky Gervais, Russell Brand, and Seth MacFarlane — but it’s Golden Globe emcees Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who are on the Red singer’s hit list, and Tina Fey is totally confused by the response.
The 42-year-old comedian — who upset the country singer, renowned for dating a string of Hollywood stars, by warning her to "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son" and advised her to take "some me time" while presenting the Golden Globes with her pal Amy Poehler in January — admitted she is very shocked that the 23-year-old star was so hurt by the jokes.
Talking to Vanity Fair about Tiny and Amy’s jab, Taylor fumed, "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.'"
Tina spoke out about the whole kerfuffle when talking to Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of her new movie Admission on Tuesday night (Feb. 5). "If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron,” she mused. “I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a light-hearted joke."
(In case you missed it, Amy Poehler joked that Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow understood torture because "she spent three years married to James Cameron," since James is a notoriously difficult director.)
The 30 Rock star's comments came just hours after co-host Amy apologized for upsetting Taylor.
"Aw, I feel bad if she was upset,” the Parks and Recreation actress 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."
