You almost have to feel bad for Taylor Swift. Not only did the country singer lose to Adele at the Golden Globe Awards, she was Punk’d by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Maybe the two hosts will be featured in the lyrics of one of Taylor’s favorite songs…after all, with the Harry Styles breakup completed, she’ll need more material!
It seems like mocking Taylor Swift is the cool thing to do at awards shows these days. The singer got her fair share of jabs at the Country Music Awards, which took place shortly after her break up with Conor Kennedy. Now, directly following a split with One Direction’s Harry Styles, Taylor is once again in for the jokes. But while Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood’s jokes at the CMA Awards were generally mild (involving a mild jab about the Kennedy family trading “Arnold Schwarzenegger for Taylor Swift”), Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s jokes have really angered a group of devoted T Swift fans.
The Taylor jokes began midway through the Golden Globes, while Tina and Amy were complaining about not winning awards. First, they laughed while Glenn Close performed a “drunk” dance, and then the ladies moved on to a little joke session centered around Taylor Swift. Tina Fey kicked things off, asking, “You know what Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J Fox’s son!” Amy interjected, “Or go for it, go for it,” but Tina insisted, “She needs some ‘me’ time to think about herself.”
Hmm, Tina Fey just might have a point. Taylor Swift has been moving pretty quickly through guys these days, although short-lived romances aren’t all that unusual in the celebrity world. Do you agree with Tina Fey? Sound off in the comments section below!
