Model Jessica Hart is apologizing for some off-handed comments she made about Taylor Swift.

Last month at the Victoria's Secret fashion show, the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer performed and strutted her stuff along the runway along with other Victoria's Secret angels. When asked if Taylor had what it took to be a Victoria's Secret model, Jessica originally responded, "I don't know, to me, she didn't fit. I don't know if I should say that."

Later, Jessica clarified what she meant by her original comments. "I adore Taylor Swift, and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. What Taylor does on stage is nothing compared to what we do. I could never get up there and do what she does! She is a true rock star and she absolutely killed it the other night."

E! News also reports that Jessica has apologized for the comments. "It was taken out of context, but I have certainly learned my lesson."

Jessica is not the only celebrity to have apologized for a Taylor Swift dig. Who else has taken back comments about the country star?


The "Royals" singer originally came under fire for suggesting that Taylor's physical appearance was "too flawless" and "too unattainable" for young girls.

The New Zealand singer later took to Tumblr to explain what she really meant. She explained that she hadn't intended to single Swifty out specifically, and that she was only trying to point out that the entertainment industry tended to place too much emphasis on the physical appearance of young women.

Lorde also apologized, explaining that she was "very new to this," and that she needed to learn to think before she speaks.

Amy Poehler

After Amy and Tina Fey roasted Taylor at the Golden Globes, the "22" singer struck back, commenting that there was a special place in hell for women who don't help other women.

Responding to Taylor's comments, Amy offered a partial apology. "Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff."

Michael J. Fox

When Tina and Amy had warned Taylor to stay away from Fox's son, Sam, Michael originally commented that he wouldn't know who she was if his son brought her home. "I don't keep up with it all, but Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? What a way to build a career."

However, it looks like the "Michael J. Fox Show" star privately apologized for his comment. As the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer tweeted, "Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good. Thank you for having my back."

Kanye West

Kanye had originally apologized for the infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Award incident before taking back his apology. To this day, he stands by his opinion that Beyonce's video was better.

As he told Ryan Seacrest in an October 2013 interview, "there still hasn't been a better video … than a Beyoncé video. And that's what people hated me the most for. The perception - 'This doesn't look good. That doesn't look good.' - But I'm not here to try to be the most likeable guy on the planet. I'm here to make things easier for people with the creativity I have."

Still, the "recovering gay fish" seems to see both sides of the situation. As he commented, "you know what? I would not want some crazy drunk rockstar cutting my daughter off also. But, my daughter would 100% also be like, 'Yes, Beyoncé did have the best video.' That's what my daughter would do!"
