Taylor Swift Unhappy With Chelsea Handler's "Virgin" Remark

New Jersey’s own Chelsea Handler, born in Livingston in 1975, had her own thoughts on Taylor Swift’s taking offense to remarks made about her by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler at the Golden Globe Awards.

Fey had joked that Swift, who used to spend summers at the Jersey shore, should stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son. Swift has become known for writing candid songs about her broken relationships.

According to US Magazine, the 23-year-old Swift responded in a Vanity Fair story, "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." Handler called that a bold statement, but said she didn’t care enough about it to take sides.

Handler went on to say on Bravo TV’s “Watch What Happens Live,” “My theory about Taylor Swift is that she’s a virgin,” according to the New York Daily News. “Everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks, and she’s like, ‘I’m not gonna do it.’ And they’re like, ‘Oh, well, forget it.”

The E! talk-show host added, referring to Swift’s “Never Ever Getting Back Together” hit, “Every guy thinks they’re going to devirginize her, and they’re not. She’s never going to get devirginized — ever, ever, ever, ever.”

Swift was reportedly not amused by Handler’s remarks, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. She is said to have dated guys like Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner over the years.

The singer told Vanity Fair, “The fact that there are slide shows of a dozen guys that I either hugged on a red carpet or met for lunch or wrote a song with. . . it’s just kind of ridiculous.” Swift continues, “It’s why I have to avoid the tabloid part of our culture, because they turn you into a fictional character. For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s turning and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”

She said in her interview that she had only dated two people since 2010, Conor Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy’s son, and One Direction’s Harry Styles.
