Are two of the funniest women in the biz going to hell in a handbasket? If Taylor Swift has anything to say about it, that’s a big “yes.”
Or so she told Vanity Fair in a new interview. So here’s how it went down. The usually humble country songbird-turned-pop star made an atypically vicious remark directed at Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who took a light jab at Taylor when they warned her to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son while hosting the Golden Globes.
In response to the jab, Taylor said, ""You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, because she said to me she heard a quote she loved that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'"
As Taylor Swift barbs go, it was pretty mild ― we’ve heard (and probably told) meaner. She couldn't even say that she thinks they're going to tell directly-- she's said that Katie Couric said that she heard a quote that said that insult. Whew, that's like a game of mean girl telephone.

Unlike Taylor, though, the Saturday Night Live alums can take a joke ― and then follow it up with a zinger of their own. “Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff," Amy kidded in response.
So, if Taylor needs to take a break from writing angry songs about boys who have dumped her, she’s found perfect fodder in the women who have pissed her off. We expect that her next album Special Place In Hell will be devoted exclusively to Tina and Amy.
At least if Amy is going to hell, she'll have fine company! In fact, if Amy and Tina are there... can we go to hell too, please?
What do you think of Taylor's comment? How about Amy's response?
