March 5 (UPI) -- Taylor Swift has gone where no starlet with a reasonable sense of humor and an attentive PR team dare go -- she dissed Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

When Vanity Fair asked Swift what she thought of the beloved duo's Golden Globes joke warning to her to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son, the 23-year-old music star insinuated that Fey and Poehler were a couple of hell-bound mean girls.

“You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people," Swift said. "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.’”

Swift's interpretation of the quote, which actually originated with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, won't do her any favors with Fey-Poehler fans (pretty much everyone).

Poehler responded via The Hollywood Reporter Tuesday.

“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist and she is a young and talented girl," Poehler said. "That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff."
