LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- When asked to share her thoughts on Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s mocking of her love life at this year’s Golden Globe awards during a recent interview, Taylor Swift deferred to a quote told to her by Katie Couric – “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
So what do Amy and Tina have to say about the “Trouble” singer’s fiery remark?
“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl,” Amy told The Hollywood Reporter.
“That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff,” she added.
As for Tina, the “Admission” star said Taylor should lighten up a bit as it was all in good fun.
“It was just a joke, and I think it was actually a very benign joke,” she told Us Weekly.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Tina and Amy threw numerous playful jabs at plenty of stars while hosting the Globes – including a joke about Taylor eyeing Michael J. Fox’s 23-year-old son (who was handing out trophies at the ceremony).
“I just feel like it was just a little joke, like two of your aunts — two of your old lady aunts — teasing you at the Thanksgiving table,” Tina told Access Hollywood of the joke, at the SAG Awards back in January. “That’s all it was.”
