I just had one of those doubled over in fits of laughter that keep re-erupting as I think about this.
Last weekend when Tina Fey and Amy Poehler poked fun at Taylor Swift warning her to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son we all had a good laugh, but it turns out that the Back To The Future star really doesn’t want the 23-year-old getting her claws into his offspring.
New York Magazine‘s Vulture asked Michael about the Swift situation at a book party on on January 16th and when they wondered if he’d want his son Sam, 23, to date Taylor for real, he replied:
“No. No … Just back off,” before adding: “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.”
Then it gets even more hilarious, Vulture asked what Michael would do if Sam brought Taylor home for dinner (suggesting that she could perhaps wear her fox jumper): “I wouldn’t even know who she was,” he said.
The mag then points out he’d soon realise though when the break-up song dropped: “Yeah, exactly,” he said. “‘Sam, You Piece of Shit.’ Oh … that was the girl you brought home!”
Here’s Taylor’s reaction to hearing Michael’s thoughts on her dating his son:
Poor old Taylor, she’s gone from being a girl who thought she’d hit upon a fail-proof way to stop guys treating her badly whilst in a relationship with her: “I’ve always lived by the theory that if a guy doesn’t want me to write a bad song about him, he won’t do bad things,” she said in 2010. “And he shouldn’t, you know?” to becoming a Hollywood punchline.
It might be an idea to start writing songs about something else, or she’ll end up like an American Bridget Jones- old, alone and eaten by her alsatians.
