Aggressively boring Taylor Swift implies ‘there’s a special place in hell’ for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

UPDATE (3/6/13): 9:32 pm EST — Tina Fey told Entertainment Tonight the following: “If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron. I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke.”

UPDATE: 4:52 pm EST — Amy Poehler had this to stay to 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.”


In a new cover story in Vanity Fair, aggressively boring pop star Taylor Swift unleashes her fury on Tina Fey and Amy Poehler the only way she knows how– by quoting Katie Couric, who was quoting former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.

You’ll likely remember that Fey and Poehler cracked a joke about Swift while hosting the Golden Globes in January; the quip was in reference to the singer’s well-documented love life, wherein she dates everyone and then breaks up with them and then writes terrible songs about how awful her boyfriends were. Since Michael J. Fox’s son, Sam, was Mr. Golden Globe for the evening, Fey directed a joke toward Swift warning her to “stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.”

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Swift tells Vanity Fair about the Globes joke, “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.’”

So let’s get this straight. Fey and Poehler should go to hell for making the most obvious, least offensive joke imaginable about your meaningless love life? Makes sense. You go, girl!

Oh, hey. We're the entire writing staff at Laughspin. We wrote the above article all together-- using one finger each.

    Tina Fey is the next Richard Pryor.

    I don’t side with Dash and Brian, but that’s okay – they have as much right to their opinion as I. I can see why this is on Laughspin. Amy and Tina are respected comedians, writers, producers and actors, while Swift is nothing more than a marketing tool with no discernible talent. When a hack like Swift criticizes the 2 most beloved comediennes at this point in time, it is good to point out her idiocy. I would have never know it unless Laughspin had a story about it. Now I can tweet to Swift and see if she writes a song about it!

  • Amy

    Oh my…this hillbilly doesn’t know what she’s doing. You don’t try to turn the world against Tina and Amy, who are literally flawless, now be prepared for the world to turn against you. I expect a “clarification” on these comments very soon. Anne Hathaway must be thanking her for taking away the most annoying female tag from her. I find it amusing that a girl who can only sing and talk about boys 24/7 is trying to talk about feminism all of a sudden and moreover, having the nerve to bring up Tina and Amy, who have done so much for women. Lets put it this way. Tina and Amy make me proud to be a woman. Taylor Swift makes me embarrassed to share the same gender as her. I’m 21 by the way, younger than her and even I can’t stand her. I wonder who exactly her fans are right now outside of tweens who don’t know any better.

    i side with @353815f8bbe24bb87577aa746bafe23a:disqus So lowww, LaughSpin…. So Lowwwwwwww

    I’m a big fan of Laughspin, but I’m pretty disconcerted you guys chose to pick up this story. I’ve read the Vanity Fair article and Swift’s point is that the tabloids are painting this picture of her as a crazy songwriting ex. The title and this article just seem like an attempt to stir the pot.

    c’mon man. Is this Tigerbeat? This isn’t even news. This is a conversation about a conversation with a 12 year old girl.
