Words can hurt.
But sometimes they merely give you a little itch.
So get over it.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler mocked Taylor Swift at the Golden Globes for some of her relationships and relationship dramas. Why? It was their job to mock the biggest celebrities in the room.
How has Taylor reacted? Well to go on television to say she’s been ” portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend” and their jokes was taking her life and “turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist”.
Oh and then she damned them to hell.
Taylor Swift, learn to take a joke.
Why is it important?
1. Comedians are untouchable!
You cannot “hit back at comedians”. They’re not making a valid point or a criticism. They are mocking you. Your reaction only proves that you’re a point of ridicule.
2. Hell!? That’s overly dramatic
If “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women” as you claim then there’s surely a equally well decorated room under the earth for those damn others to hell for simply trying to make people laugh.
3. Come on…
If you’re dating anyone from a band that rolls up their jeans, sings in harmony and looks 12 years old then you are fair game.
4. There’s a better way
When other actors have shown they have a funny bone – when Ricky Gervais mocked Johnny Depp in previous Golden Globes, Johnny Depp responded by going on Ricky’s Gervais’ show and joins in the fun – then you appear even more uptight than you are.
5. You have a choice
You want to avoid being mocked? Go and become a singing teacher instead.
You want to make 100’s of millions of dollars from your trade? Learn to put with the spotlight.
