A Swift response from Fey, Poehler: 'Aw... it's a shame'
Golden Globes co-hosts Tina Fey, left, and Amy Poehler admit that they are going to hell.
Can't stand to read another word about Taylor Swift? Sorry, but the circus continues, so soldier on.
The pop singer appears to be going through a bit of Hathaway-esque backlash at the moment, as she got snippy in Vanity Fair while discussing her self-promoted love life and the jokes surrounding it. After impyling that there's a special place in hell (ouch!) for Golden Globes co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who dared to make a joke at Swift's expense, the two comedians have responded to the singer's slight.
I do agree - I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.
Poehler told The Hollywood Reporter: "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."

Fey told Entertainment Tonight: "If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron."
Fey was referring to her and Poehler's onstage quip about Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow's understanding torture, as depicted in her film, because of her failed marriage to the Avatar director.
"I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a light-hearted joke. And it's a shame that she didn't take it in the crazy-aunt spirit in which it was intended," she added.

But, it seems that Swift herself realizes that flitting from guy to guy and writing scathing songs about her brief romances and inevitable breakups may not be gaining her many friends. Vulture reports that in another interview with British InStyle, Swift opens up about her anxieties about being sad and alone.
"My fears circle around me making the wrong choices and messing this up for myself. I don't wanna end up being awful and intolerable. Alone. Laying in a marble bathtub by myself, like sad, with a glass of wine just complaining that my life ended up alone because I pushed everyone away because I thought I was too good to hang out with anybody."
Is that a Taylor culpa?
