Tina Fey Hopes Taylor Swift Will Write a Song About Her
Taylor Swift is notorious at this point for mining her personal life and using it as the source material for her much-loved songs. She owns up to that. That propensity caused her to be the butt of Tina Fey’s jokes at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards, which lead to some minor (and quickly resolved drama) with actor Michael J. Fox. Since Fey was responsible for stoking the fires, she realizes she is fair game to become the subject of a Swift song — something she welcomes.
“I just feel like it was just a little joke, like two of your aunts, two of your old lady aunts teasing you at the Thanksgiving table, that’s all it was,” Fey said of the Swift jab while chatting with ‘Access Hollywood‘ at the 2013 SAG Awards last weekend.
In case you forgot, Fey joked that Swift — who had just split with One Direction‘s Harry Styles — needed to steer clear of Fox’s son Sam, who was Mr. Golden Globe and handing out the statues that night. Mr. Fox made a couple of off-color comments about Swift’s music and added he wouldn’t condone her romancing his offspring. But Swift later confirmed that they cleared up the drama.
Live and in the moment, Swift did not look thrilled at being the butt of the joke during the ceremony. And you know what they say about payback, right? Perhaps Swift will use the experience to write a song about it? “I hope so,” the ’30 Rock’ star admits about the possibility of Swift drafting up a song. “I would love it!”
There’s no bigger form of flattery than to include someone in a song — unless, of course, you are one of Swift’s exes. If the young hitmaker did pen a song, it’d immortalize Fey among the Swift nation. Since ’30 Rock’ is going off air this year, maybe that was Fey’s intention and her sneaky’ way of remaining relevant?
There’s an ‘SNL’ skit waiting to happen in all of this. Taylor, are you listening?
