Taylor Swift Bashes Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in Vanity Fair, Says Media is ‘Sexist’


At this year’s Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at Taylor Swift‘s love life — but she didn’t find it funny.

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” she told Vanity Fair about the joke and “mean girls” in general. “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.’”

Whoa, T-Swift — Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are going to hell for making a joke about you? You realize that’s their job, right?

Still, I think Taylor makes an interesting point about the media and its sexist treatment of her.

“Since 2010 I have dated exactly two people,” Taylor continued. (She’s talking about Conor Kennedy and One Direction’s Harry Styles).

“The fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with…it’s just kind of ridiculous,” she said. “It’s why I have to avoid the tabloid part of our culture, because they turn you into a fictional character.”

Is she boy-crazy?

“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated—a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way—that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”

I have always hoped that Taylor Swift is deeper than her sweet, boy-crazy image…and this attack on the media shows that she probably is!

The tabloid narrative surrounding Taylor is as frustrating as the one that’s plagued Jennifer Aniston. Do you think the media has portrayed Taylor in a sexist way?
