Amy Poehler Responds to Taylor Swift’s Vanity Fair Diss: “I Am Going to Hell”
Early Tuesday, a quote from Taylor Swift’s interview with April issue of Vanity Fair garnered quite a bit of attention after the singer slammed Golden Globes hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for a light diss they lobbed her way at January’s show.
Tough skin on that one.
The “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer has been romantically linked to Harry Styles, Conor Kennedy, Jake Gyllenhaal and Joe Jonas. But she claims that media speculation about her love life has been widely exaggerated.
When quizzed about the joke — where Fey warned Swift to “stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son” — the 23-year-old singer admitted that she wasn’t exactly impressed with the quip.
“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.'”
When reached for comment by The Hollywood Reporter, Poehler’s response was predictable perfect:
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. 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.”
Throughout their careers, Tina and Amy have been two of Hollywood’s most vocal sister supporters. Poehler even created Smart Girls at the Party and launched an online video series called “Ask Amy” — in which she doles out real-world advice to young women.
