Tina Fey Got Revenge On Taylor Swift At The Golden Globes, Secured Herself A Special Place In Hell

Tina Fey Amy Poehler drinking golden globes

There’s so much happening at the 2014 Golden Globes that you might’ve missed Tina Fey’s jab at Taylor Swift. But luckily for you, we’re experts at insults and we know one when we hear one. But before we can talk about what happened on stage tonight though, we have to rewind to a Vanity Fair interview that Taylor Swift did last year. You know, the one where she said there’s a special place in hell for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler because they made fun of her during the 2013 Golden Globes. Remember it now? Getting hot and bothered all over again that a pop singer damned two comedians to Hell for making a joke? Okay, cool, back to the future we go!

So tonight Amy Poehler finally won a Golden Globe for her performance as Leslie Knope in Parks and Rec. And I say finally because she should’ve won that award approximately four hundred nominations ago. But that’s a rant for last year — she won tonight and it was great and I personally high-fived one million angels in excitement. When she and Tina got back on stage together after her win, Tina congratulated her and nonchalantly said, “I love you and there’s a special place in hell for you.” Which was clearly a jab at that Taylor Swift interview and clearly a way to remind Taylor that she didn’t get the last word. Without even saying Taylor’s name, she managed to one up her. So yeah, the bar for throwing shade in 2014 just got a whole lot higher.

      Eff yes. Totally missed that reference.

    • elle

      These are the kinds of things that make Tina Fey amazing.

    • Ruby L

      LOVE IT

    • AlarTruve

      Tina is embarrassing. She needs to let go. Its not like Taylor addressed them with quote. It was just a little added something by vanity fair to get the drama and clicks.

      • Kate

        I disagree – she specifically referenced that quote after being asked about the joke. It doesn’t really make sense to try and pretend she wasn’t directing it at them

      • Jenni

        “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Taylor Swift tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales on the subject of mean girls in general and in response to an incident at this year’s Golden Globes, where Amy Poehler and Tina Fey mocked her highly scrutinized love life. “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.’”
        Sooo yeah, I think Taylor was talking about Tinamy.

      • AlarTruve

        Lol. So obviously added. Seemingly talks about different things but it was really juicy to tie this to GG thing because it was fresh at the time.

        Not only is Tina sexist and slut/shamer she also does not seem to let go things easily. Ridiculous how media is ganging up on Taylor when she has not even done anything to deserve hate. Just sat pretty and clapped all night. And Tina knew she would get that reaction. Petty as fck.

      • Jenni

        This quote caused a shitstorm on the Internet back when it happened….yet Taylor Swift never denied that’s what she meant. In contrast, when Miley Cyrus got quoted incorrectly just this month about Beyonce, she immediately refuted the statement.

      • JLH1986

        Swifty is in a world of hurt if Miley is showing more class…

      • Jenni

        That’s the thing about Miley. Her crazy is very calculated. She would never, ever dare insult Beyonce.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        She already did with Wrecking Ball and her twerking scene on TV. Just not personally. She doesn’t have to.

        Beyonce has enough smarts and talent to overide the sexual vibes she puts out.

      • Mel

        How exactly does one “override” sexual vibes she puts out?

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        I am assuming you mean Miley. Miley PRODUCES SEX AND PROVOCATION but not seduction, which cannot be produced.Most men today don’t know the difference and they respond sexually and erotically to PRODUCED seduction, not knowing seduction cannot be produced. That’s not too clear is it. Not a question. PRODUCED seduction is simply PROVOCATIVE.Provocative is in the Order of Production. SEDUCTION is in the Symbolic Order. Miley produces it and at the same time denies it. She is doing a double negative of sex and seduction and provocation. It is brilliant of her. Does she consciously know this? I doubt it and that’s what makes her an artist. She is “wrecking” the Dominating Discourse of accepted sexual signs that are really “empty” of meaning – erotic content.

      • Mel

        Okay, I enjoyed your pearl-clutching, nonsensical rant about how Miley’s horrible. And I think she’s horrible, but not for being sexual. You’re the one that made that strange sentence about Bey overriding the sexual vibes. It didn’t make any sense so I asked for clarification. Clearly you can’t do that, so oh well.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Wow! (Clutching my pearl necklace)not only do you not understand post graduate post modern thought, you can’t read either. Oh well you’re in luck here as I used to teach first grade in a kingdom by the sea so I can start with basics for you. By the time I’m 200 we ought to have you up to snuff for 2014.

        MILEY IS GREAT! Not horrible. Let me say that again so everyone will know I think MILEY IS MARVELOUS!

      • Mel

        You’re exceptionally boring and douchey. Have a nice life!

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Gee. One cliche after another just slips off your tongue like mercury and into cybersphere. Where they will circulate forever. Now that’s immortality of a sort. (I am hoping Mel gets the nuance of mercury being poison but I have my doubts.)

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Miley just outclassed all pop music women performers with Wrecking Ball. Most can’t see it yet.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Miley is stupendous. Don’t knock her when I’m around.

      • JLH1986

        When I think of Miley…”stupendous” isn’t quite the word that comes to mind.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        I had the same feeling when I posted it, that it was the wrong adjective. I amended it in my head as marvelous. Can you go along with that?

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Hey 2 different chicks, 2 different styles. Whattaya got against DIFFERENCE!

      • Bob_Higs

        Because she’s Taylor Swift and she never addresses the media when they make shit up about her. Her PR plan has always been to simply ignore an issue until it is forgotten about. As someone who has hated on her for many years, you should be familiar with this by now.

      • Kate

        ……..this is a joke right? Are we talking about the same person?

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Yeh but Miley’s was very different and she didn’t mean it. Swifty did. Swift is in a repetition compulsion now.

      • AlarTruve

        Taylor practically never addresses media speculations. Its annoying but i get her. She would go mad when she starts fighting every lie printed about her in the media.

      • CMJ

        I’m growing increasingly tired of the “shaming” moniker thrown on everything. Sometimes, a joke is just a joke. In fact, I think Swift’s “special place in hell” comment was meaner than joking about Taylor having some “me” time.

        Also, please explain the sexism to me….

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        I already did. Look above. Sexist is a very yesterday term now.

      • Mel

        Extra! Extra! Sexism is over! Hip Hip Hooray! Thanks for letting me know. I sure hadn’t noticed. That goes hand in hand with the Republican/Tea Party letting us know that racism is so in the past. Whew! What a relief!

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        You have to make the distinction between sexed and gendered. A woman is sexed female but she may be gendered male. Then to obscure this she may masquerade as female i.e. woman. This is not me this is Judith Butler’s work on gender as socially constructed. Taylor Swift is gendered masculine.She masquerades as female. I wrote lyrics for a song for John Mayer on this:http://focusfree.blogspot.com/2011/08/lyrics-for-john-mayershotgun-eyes.html You may not like it but I really do. I wish he would write music for it and sing it. I can hear the music in my head. The way I could write it anyway.If I could.

      • Raquel

        Thank you. Let me have an opinion or make a joke! “Quit shame shaming me!”

      • Kate

        “on the subject of mean girls in general and in response to an incident at this year’s Golden Globes, where Amy Poehler and Tina Fey mocked her highly scrutinized love life.”

        I repeat:

        “IN RESPONSE TO an incident at this year’s Golden Globes, where AMY POEHLER AND TINA FEY mocked her highly scrutinized love life.”

        Of course, Taylor is never one to fire back at her detractors or anyone else who has somehow “wronged” her, no matter how lighthearted the joke was. Wait a minute…

      • Bob_Higs

        Did you miss the part of the interview in Vanity Fair where she was explicitly asked about Fey’s remarks and specifically addressed them?

        Here, I’ll quote it for you: And then our conversation turned to the Golden Globes. “I was just sort of like, Oh well, you know, I can laugh at myself,” Swift said. “But what it ended up adding to was this whole kind of everyone jumping on the bandwagon of ‘Taylor dates too much’—which, you know, if you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people.”

        That quote you’ve added above was clearly taken out of context by Vanity Fair to try and create fake controversy.

      • Kate

        Maybe you should give it another look – http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2013/04/taylor-swift-cover-story

        “When we were discussing that moment at the Golden Globes, and mean girls in general, Swift just smiled and said, “You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people because she said to me she had heard a quote that she loved”—from former secretary of state Madeleine Albright—“that said, ‘There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’ ”

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        VF has to get down into tabloid dirty sandbox to sell zines. All “journalists” are doing the same. And not only about Swift but also about Snowden, which means so very much more.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        AS Lacan would say, “How do you know she’s a woman?” Taylor Swift is gendered as masculine and masquerading as a woman. If you want to see this fictionalized to perfection see The Counselor with Cameron Diaz who IS the new woman.So is Swift.She just happens to pick the wrong men for the most part for the type of woman she is. And then she turns them into art, a form of it at least in pop music.

      • Brianna

        ……I’m sorry, what exactly prompted this comment?

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Just interjecting a little bit of brains in the thread. Sorry you didn’t get it.

      • Brianna

        Oh
        I “got it”, thanks. Just didn’t really seem to be relevant to the
        comment that you replied to. Shaming my intelligence for pointing out
        the irrelevance of the context you commented in isn’t really necessary
        nor does it further your point.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Obviously it did further my point. You replied to it. That’s another hit for the site.

      • CMJ

        Bless your heart.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        :)!

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        I don’t need to be prompted but it would be nice sometimes.

      • CMJ

        Pretty sure that fictionalized version Diaz played was panned by everyone. So, not quite sure what your point is.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Yes, the very new always gets panned and the boring old is lionized. Some things never change.

      • Mel

        I can’t believe I’m going to say this, and please don’t revoke my feminist card, but I just can’t believe that it’s all the men’s faults and Taylor is some innocent bystander/victim. Statistically unlikely! And, “art” really? I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        The men are complicit I agree. There are many levels of art. No her music is not high art but it is art and it does sell. A lot. Sort of like romantic fiction or a Hollywood movie that is good. Like American Hustle for example.A cynical award for the GG. This is what American awards now think is GREAT STUFF!

      • Mel

        Levels of art? I get this feeling that you’re pretending to be a whole lot “deeper” than you really are. It’s something else that’s deep around here….

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        All painters are not in Picasso’s league. Do or can you agree with that? That doesn’t mean I don’t like them, enjoy their work, think its beautiful, challenging etc.Nowadays IMO Mark Tansey is setting the bar, the challenge. He’s going to be hard to reach. That doesn’t mean I don’t like the work of art students. Swift is not Wagner, nor Puccini, nor Verdi, but I listen to her and I like her work. Because she is not in the same league does that mean she isn’t an artist? I don’t think so.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        Taylor don’t need no help. She doing just fine thank you.

      • JLH1986

        Did you really knock someone’s intelligence further up this thread and then use the phrase “don’t need no”?

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        I do dialect jes fine thank you maam. It’s important to keep in touch with it. Standard American English (SAE) is just that: a standard. I don’t carry no standards.

      • m

        I have seen you comment a lot in this site, and I always keep wondering what you’re smoking… Or do you seriously think you sound sooo intelligent? I have also read Butler, yet I do not feel the need to bring it up in every thread.

      • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

        LINK? What other comment did I mention her highness on. I count one. Is my arithmetic a bad? Or yours? My bad or yours?

    • Bob_Higs

      Jesus Christ, is Tina Fey 6? I think it’s time for her to grow up and move on.

      • CMJ

        One could say the same about Taylor Swift.

      • Bob_Higs

        Taylor Swift is 24, while Tina Fey is 43. It speaks poorly of Fey that you seem to think it okay that she is no more mature than a woman nearly half her age.

        It’s also worth pointing out that Swift did not start this, and has not addressed it in a year, the only one still bringing this up and making petty remarks about it is Fey.

      • Kate

        To be fair, Tina made a single comment and it was in almost the exact same context as her original remarks – at the Golden Globes a year later. She didn’t mention Taylor by name, and the only people who can associate it with her already know about the controversy from last year. If it’s okay for Taylor to tweet about “keeping a firm grip” on her mic if she wins a VMA in reference to the Kanye incident in 2009 (THREE! YEARS! LATER!), then it is okay for Tina to say what she did. And if Taylor really did laugh off their joke from last year as you said earlier, I’m sure she didn’t give two shits that they brought up her favorite Madeline-Albright-via-Katie-Couric quote.

      • Bob_Higs

        I’m sure she didn’t give a shit about their comments. That doesn’t make it any less pathetic for sites like this bring it up and try to make this into a big deal.

      • Jenni

        Where on the pathetic scale are people who return to pathetic sites to respond to pathetic people who are defending pathetic people? Just pathetically wondering!

      • AlarTruve

        What kind of kinder garden logic. If she did then i can do it too!!! Lmaooo.

      • Kate

        Where is this kinder garden? Are there pretty flowers???

      • Jenni

        It seems like just yesterday Taylor Swift was 22….how time flies!

    • CMJ

      This thread is getting hilariously awesome.

    • Kate

      As much as I’m enjoying this thread, I’m really sad that we aren’t focusing more on the fact that Amy Poehler was finally recognized for her flawless portrayal of sweet baby angel Leslie Knope.

      • Jenni

        If only we lived in such a sweet and simple world!
