Did Tina Fey Diss Taylor Swift at the Golden Globes?
Taylor Swift has been the butt of several jokes over the last few years, with many highlighting her dating life. The 2013 Golden Globes were no exception. Hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made Swift the center of a few jabs — a theme which continued at the 2014 awards show.
Last year, funny ladies and ‘SNL’ veterans Fey and Poehler warned the blonde superstar that she should probably stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son, due to her serial dating history. This led to Fox speaking out and saying he agreed with the women, and that he doesn’t want his son to be the subject of a Swift song.
Of course, Swift didn’t sit idly by after being insulted. In a Vanity Fair issue that followed, the songstress took her own jab at Fey and Poehler, making it clear that Katie Couric was on her side in the mini-feud.
“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,’” Swift told the magazine.
On Sunday night (Jan. 12) during the 2014 Golden Globes, Fey snuck in what seemed to be yet another jab at the pop-country songstress. Poehler was the recipient of an award, and when Fey went to congratulate her, she said, “There’s a special place in hell for you.”
Subtle, but point made.
Swift has been known to write songs about her grudges and feuds. Will there be a tribute to Fey and Poehler soon? They realize what they’re setting themselves up for, say they’re ready. Poehler admits she has accepted her fate. Fey, on the other hand, actually has her fingers crossed that her name may soon be on radio waves everywhere!
