Once upon a time at the Golden Globes, hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made a little joke at Taylor Swift’s expense. It wasn’t even an especially mean joke, really, but it still poked fun at Swift’s reputation for getting around. “You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son,” they said, as the camera panned to Swift’s that’s-not-funny face. Fox himself even weighed in on it. (He later apologized.) There were rumors that Taylor Swift was upset about all the negative attention — who wouldn’t be? — and it turns out she took comfort in an unlikely place: the wisdom of Katie Couric.
In her new Vanity Fair profile, Swift was asked about how she deals with “mean girls,” which everyone is assuming is a reference to Fey and Poehler (but not Katy Perry, who has behaved like a snot towards Swift as well, if blind item gossip is to be believed). “Katie Couric is one of my favorite people,” Swift told the magazine. “Because she said to me she a heard a quote that she loved that said ‘There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.’ (Which is actually a quote from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.)
Cue 6,000 headlines screaming that Taylor Swift has told Tina Fey and Amy Poehler that they’re going to hell.

“For seven years I would literally pull something off the floor because it was 6 o’clock in the morning, go to work, put on my wardrobe until the end of the day, put on what were basically pajamas and then go home. I don’t actually know what I like to wear in real life. It’s going to be a period of terribly awkward experimentation. Like middle school all over again. Perhaps I’m a person who wears a blouse with an ascot? Dark green nails? I think it’s going to be a series of caftans.”

As the final episode of “30 Rock” quickly approaches, the cast and crew have been releasing some special behind-the-scenes clips, and this one, in which Tina Fey shows us around Liz Lemon’s office, has to be my favorite so far. The best part? The framed Bust cover featuring Fey’s real-life BFF Amy Poehler that’s hanging on the wall of Liz Lemon’s office (mindfuck, right?). “This makes the world collapse a little bit,” Fey explains. “I just really like that picture of her, so I put it up, even though if that’s Amy Poehler, then who am I?” [NBC]
Last night’s Golden Globe Awards were, hands down, the funniest the show has ever been. I’m serious. I realize that’s a big statement to make, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought it and, frankly, were even a bit under used. And I never say that about award show hosts. But the show overall was filled with many, many awesome moments, from Adele’s win for best song, to Lena Dunham and “Girls” surprise wins, to Jodie Foster’s incredible kinda sorta coming out speech. Let’s review the best moments, in picture, GIF and video form… Keep reading »
