Taylor Swift has a message for her critics, notably Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: You're going to hell.

In a new interview in Vanity Fair, Swift responds to Fey and Poehler's Golden Globes joke telling her to stay away from Michael J. Fox's son. "You know, Katie Couric is one of my favorite people ... 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.'"

Can you believe these celebs dated?

Swift, who graces the cover of the April issue, insists in the interview that she's not the serial dater everyone thinks she is. "If you want some big revelation, since 2010 I have dated exactly two people," she says, referring to Conor Kennedy and One Direction's Harry Styles. "[T]he fact that there are slideshows 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 also goes on to say that the fact that she's so open in her lyrics should be celebrated, not ridiculed.

Stars who don't look their age

"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," she says, "I think that's taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that's taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist."
