VS Angel Jessica Hart Pays for Slamming Taylor Swift
For years Taylor Swift has been an undisputed media darling, so when Jessica Hart dissed the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer following the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she all but cooked her own goose.
According to Page Six, the lovely lingerie model has been “blacklisted from next year’s show” and it’s doubtful that she’ll score many catalog shoots, at least for awhile.
Ms. Hart slammed Swift’s performance at the Fashion Show in a WWD interview, noting, "God bless her heart. I think she’s great, but... she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that. I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we’ve been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself. I think it comes with age."
Almost immediately, Victoria Secret’s Chief Marketing Officer Ed Razek released a statement to try an smooth things over—“I have personally been in contact with Jessica Hart and she said she was ‘wildly misinterpreted’ and that she thought Taylor was ‘amazing.’ She is stunned that anyone would think differently. And that's something we can all agree on.”
“I can tell you that everyone at Victoria's Secret was blown away by Taylor's performance.
She could not be more beautiful or talented, that we felt extremely lucky to have her, and that she is welcome back to do the show anytime she wants. . . Taylor's not ready to be an Angel? She's more than ready to be anything she wants to be,” he continued.
