Amy Poehler Responds to Taylor Swift's Vanity Fair Comments
Speaking of Taylor Swift and drama ... Tay-Tay's cover story in the April issue of Vanity Fair kicks off with the 23-year-old singer promising that "there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." She's talking about the minor roast that Amy Poehler and Tina Fey gave her at the Golden Globes when they joked that she'd better "stay away from Michael J. Fox's son," a rib about Swift's habit of memorializing relationships with bad endings in song. To Swift, the joke was anti-feminist. To Poehler, an active proponent for the empowerment of women and girls, it's not exactly the worst thing she's ever said.
"Aw, I feel bad if she was upset," Poehler told The Hollywood Reporter when asked to respond to Swift's comments. "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."
