Amy Poehler, Tina Fey Respond to Taylor Swift's Criticism

Paul Drinkwater/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- In the new issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift says she wasn't happy about the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at her at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

On stage at the Golden Globes, Tina announced, "You know what, Taylor Swift?  You stay away from Michael J. Fox's son." 

Poehler added, "Or go for it," but then said, "No, she needs some 'me' time to learn about herself."

Addressing the topic of mean girls with Vanity Fair, Taylor quotes Katie Couric saying, "She said to me she had heard a quote that she loves that said, 'There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.'"

Asked for her reaction to Taylor's comments in the Vanity Fair article, Poehler told The Hollywood Reporter, "Aw, I feel bad if she was upset.  I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl."

Poehler then added, "That being said, I do agree I am going to hell.  But for other reasons.  Mostly boring tax stuff."

For her part, Fey tells Entertainment Tonight, "I did not see that one coming.  It was a joke, it was a lighthearted joke."
