How hard can it be to write songs when people just give you great material to work with? Because that’s exactly what actor Michael J. Fox did for Taylor Swift when he told Vulture that “no” he would not want his 23-year-old son, Sam, dating the same age singer.
The idea first came about during the Golden Globe Awards when Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey — and co-host of the show — joked that newly-single Swift should stay away from Fox’s son (who was chosen as Mr. Golden Globe to help hand out awards).
When the Back to the Future star was later asked about Swift, he admitted, “I wouldn’t know who she was” if his son ever did bring 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.” Ouch. You know that had to hurt the sensitive singer who just recently split with One Direction’s Harry Styles. However, she later tweeted that the two had made amends, saying, “Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good. Thank you for having my back.”
Swift might have forgiven, but she rarely forgets. You know a good word that rhymes with Fox? Mock.
