Our girl Taylor Swift took some time out of her busy schedule to grace the cover of Vanity Fair and share a few choice words about how the media is portraying her love life. What did she have to say?
“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people, 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.’”
Ooooh, dig at Tina Fey and Amy Pohler for the comments at the Golden Globes? Look at Taylor going all feminist on us. I’m impressed and will forever wish she as my best friend, no matter how many boys she dates and writes songs about.
She went on to address the scrutinization of her love life saying,
“[t]he fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with. . . it’s just kind of ridiculous.”
See guys? I don’t think people cut Taylor enough slack. All she is a smart, well-spoken young adult female who maybe doesn’t know what she wants, but she certainly knows how to get to the top.
…And avoid all those nasty tabloids.
“It’s why I have to avoid the tabloid part of our culture, because they turn you into a fictional character. For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated—a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way—that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”
Power to you Swifty. Girl is having a stellar year opening it up playing at the ball drop in Time Square, over 4 million copies of RED sold in only 3 months in the US and 5.4 million copies worldwide, so who cares about what other people say?
