Amy Poehler Responds to Taylor Swift’s Suggestion She’s Going To Hell

-In her new cover story in Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift says Tina Fey and Amy Poehler mean girl’d her at the Golden Globes and quotes Katie Couric by saying, “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” Oh yes. Let’s have the girl who makes millions off her failed romances preach feminism to the creators of “bitch is the new black” and Smart Girls at the Party.

Amy Poehler has already responded in the classy, funny way you’d expect.

-Also, Taylor didn’t bad-mouth Harry Styles in VF, but she had no issues “authorizing” one of her friends to publicly accuse him of cheating on her. Who’s acting like a mean girl now?

-Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran insists he’s not dating Taylor.

-Is it just me, or is Kate Winslet Benjamin Button-ing before our eyes? Dayum, girl!

-Are Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux getting hitched in Hawaii in a few weeks?

-Speaking of Justin Theroux, who knew he had a hot brother?

-Just in case you weren’t already in love with Mila Kunis, check out how she handled a petrified interviewer in this video. (My favourite part is when she says “let me just give you answers that I know you’re going to ask” and then just rattles off a bunch of canned, scripted responses before going back to talking about drinking.) I really feel that her, Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence need to form a girl gang.

-Speaking of Emma Stone, she’ll join Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis and Naomi Watts in a dark comedy called Birdman.

-This Funny or Die video about Postal Service auditions slayed me.

-Nooo! We heard the rumblings, and now it seems like cute Canadian couple Jay Baruchel and Alison Pill really are no more. They were fine a few months ago, judging by their adorable Christmas video.

Jamie Lee Curtis was no fan of Seth MacFarlane‘s sexist Oscar bits. Ditto for Geena Davis.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are able to hang together at their son’s soccer game without killing each other.

-I scored way too high on this “How Well Do You Know Gilmore Girls?” quiz.

Ellen DeGeneres wrote an open letter about marriage equality to the Supreme Court and it’s awesome.

Justin Bieber offered a weak-ass apology for showing up to a concert two hours late. He’s going to perform tonight’s show 30 minutes early, which I’m sure will thrill last night’s crowd.

-Oh god, are we all supposed to start wearing double jeans like Rihanna now? Because shopping for just one pair already makes me break out in hives.

-This video of a six-year-old girl from London killing it in a breakdance battle made my day.

-People are talking about how Kate Middleton‘s baby bump seems to have disappeared. Uh-oh. It’s Beyonce’s belly watch all over again!

-If last year was the year I discovered podcasts, 2013 is shaping up to be the year I discovered web series. Now that The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is wrapping up (only 7 more eps left!), I’m moving on to Squaresville and Blue (Julia Stiles plays a prostitute!). And I’m going to watch the hell out of Joan Rivers’ web series in which she interviews celebs in bed. Seriously, YouTube shows are becoming better than most of the crap being churned out by network TV.

-Everyone’s talking about Liam Hemsworth getting flirty with January Jones during an Oscars party, but how come this is the first we’ve heard of him cozying up to Emma Watson?

Terrence Howard continues to be creepy, this time praising costar Oprah’s “tig ol’ bitties.” He also says Iron Man killed his career.

-Showtime has confirmed that the next season of Dexter will be its last. I dropped that show a long time ago but heard it bounced back last season. Should I tune in again?

-Wanna see Kanye West grab Kim Kardashian’s boob? Yeah, me neither.

Carly Rae Jepsen and Train just dropped out of the Boy Scout Jamboree, citing the organization’s opposition to gay scouts.

Kate Hudson shows off her abs by posing topless on the cover of Glamour. Exactly what is she promoting (besides her post-baby boobs)? IMDB says she’s not appearing in anything until 2014.

Jon Stewart is taking the summer off to make a movie about Iran. John Oliver will replace him.

-Weird: The X Files lives on. Season 10 will be told in comic book form (though seeing as I’m still trying to repress the fact that the show ended with Scully giving her baby up for adoption and going on the run with a fugitive Mulder, I think I’m just going to keep on pretending the series wrapped after the first movie).

-The trailer for Noah Baumbach‘s Frances Ha has dropped. I saw this at TIFF and it was less than awesome. Unless you enjoy movies where every character acts like they’re auditioning for Girls and they make observations like “This apartment is so aware of itself,” stay away!

-The second official trailer for Iron Man 3 has landed, which beefs up Ben Kingsley‘s role as The Mandarin.
