Taylor Swift on love life, Golden Globes

Taylor Swift is trying to set the record straight about her love life - and about those who poke fun at it.

She's on the cover of the current issue of Vanity Fair magazine - and in it, the singer denies she's a boy-crazy woman who rips boyfriends in song after she and they part ways. She describes herself as strong woman who writes about her feelings "in a confessional way." And Swift says those who would turn that into something that makes her sound like "some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her" - are "a little sexist."

Among those she feels fall into that category are Amy Poehler and Tina Fey - who skewered her with a couple of jokes at the Golden Globe awards. In a reference to the comedians, Swift said she liked a quote attributed to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright as saying: "there is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women."

Poehler responded to the comment, cracking that while she may be "going to hell," it's "for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff."
