Taylor Swift Slammed by... Michael J. Fox?!?

by at . Comments

At this year's Golden Globes, hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler jokingly told Taylor Swift not to date Michael J. Fox's young son.

But when asked later by Vulture for his thought on the singer actually getting with his 23-year old son, the iconic sitcom star didn't seem to be in a laughing mood.

"I don't keep up with it all," Fox said when asked about the star's love life. "But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right?"

Yes, she does, Michael.

"What a way to build a career," the actor replied.


Swift, of course, has built an impressive career with that strategy. But is finally catching up with her personally? Following a split with Harry Styles, sources claimed this week that Bradley Cooper rejected Taylor's request to hang out.


Could it be that Mr. Fox meant 'what a way to build Sam's career'? Sam [Michael's son] wants into the biz so maybe Michael is thinking it wouldn't be so bad to have Taylor write a song about him....[joking, of course]. Just another way to read his comment. Fox is Canadian, after all - polite above all else!! :)


Actually if you read it he only comments about her writing songs about them not how many shes dated

@ rae

Fox admits he wouldn't know Swift if he met her, he obviously doesn't know her music-- so why the negative public comments? As someone else said-she just turned 23 and dated two guys in one year. Anyone who knows Swift's music knows she's a brilliant songwriter. She writes from life, but she writes about all aspects of love, good and bad. But she herself never names names. It's the press and younger fans who do that. She also writes songs about many other things too.
No, unfortunately Internet gossip sites get the most response when they go after young women like Swift. (You don't read many stories about George Clooney's serial dating, do you?) Swift is the victim du jour ever since Tina Fey and Amy P. had the bad taste to criticize her for her dating habits (one would assume for dating 2guys in a year--and notice no jokes about George Clooney!).
Shame on Fox, Tina, Amy. Jodie Foster talks movingly about how hard it is to grow up in the spotlight-- and these celebs (who should know better) make jokes, and headlines, at Swift's expense.


In a room full of tv & hollywood men who go thru women like used condoms they mock a 23yo who dated god forbid, 2 guys this year. Mr Fox I alwas thought you had class.she did nothing to you or your son. You shoud gave made no coment or said it was a joke we laughed.

@ dude

@Dude, I believe that's the point. Two guys this year, and it's only January? I can think of a list of ten names or so that she's dated in the last two years.

@ Maddie

That is 2 guys in all of 2012 and 2013......she works on her music most of the time. Cooper has already said the story is fictional. It is amazing the s**t people will make up about this girl.

@ fred

Dude - it's not made up that she writes songs about everyone she dates. THAT is a fact. If I was a Dad - I wouldn't want a song or songs written about my son - plain and simple.
