Rumor Control: On the subject of context and hell. That Vanity Fair quote.
It’s a media blitz, Taylor Nation.
Here at the Swift Agency, one guy who thinks this is the perfect night for blogging at midnight, we’ve tried clearing as much as we could the setup for that Vanity Fair quote on the previous post but it remains vague. The quote was said as a response to mean girls in general, but the ‘response to an incident’… needs some clarification.
Popdust put it all in perspective asking specifically for the context. If you’ve heard any of her previous interviews, you know the Sparkly Dressed would not respond directly to Tina and Amy either.
Personally, I have to add something that has been bugging me. Why would Taylor involve Katie Couric if she was actually lashing back at two other people? She would not include a friend of hers into a response of this nature.
Here’s the way it’s expressed in the article.
“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.’”
This is a preview of the Vanity Fair photoshoot. Sorry, no audio.
Here’s E! News talking to the Vanity Fair contributing editor Nancy Jo Sales about the article. Unfortunately, they never ask her what the question was that got the quoted answer.
Thanks to ohsoswiftly for both clips! Hopefully this will blow over soon, although I doubt it. As long as you can sell headlines, it will continue until someone calls someone and then announces everyone is friends again. Hoping that happens soon.
