Tina Fey to Swift: 'It was a joke!'

  • The actress and comedian says her lighthearted jab at Taylor Swift's love life was not to be taken seriously
  • Swift addressed the criticism by citing a quote that 'there's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women'
Taylor Swift was not pleased by jokes at her expense by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globes.

When Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosted the Golden Globes earlier this year, they poked fun at dozens of celebrities -- including themselves. But Taylor Swift seems to have taken the lighthearted jokes about her love life personally.

Swift's recent comments in the April issue of Vanity Fair, where she references the jabs and cites the quote, "'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women,'" took both Fey and Poehler by surprise.

"If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron," Fey told "Entertainment Tonight." "I did not see that one coming. It was a joke. It was a lighthearted joke."

The 42-year-old mother of two was joined in surprise by Poehler, her Globes co-host: "Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl," said the "Parks and Rec" star to The Hollywood Reporter.

Poehler continued with her trademark humor and grace: "That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff."
