Golden Globe Award hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler tossed some good-natured ribbing at the pop star and her colorful dating life. However, Swift wasn't having it: "You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people," Swift told Vanity Fair, "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.' "
But the funnywomen took the condemnation in stride.
"Aw, I feel bad if she was upset," Poehler said. "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. "
As for Fey, she said she didn't expect Swift to be the one bashing their critically praised gig.
"If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron," she said, "I did not see that one coming. It was a joke and it was a lighthearted joke and it's a shame that she didn't take it in the crazy-aunt spirit in which it was intended."
