Taylor Swift: the joke that doesn’t work

Music news

During the Golden Globes ceremony, this Sunday, January 7, Taylor Swift was the subject of a joke that she did not really appreciate from the master of ceremonies Jo Koy.

Elected personality of the year by the prestigious Time magazine, Taylor Swift is everywhere. And in particular in the boxes of Arrowhead Stadium to follow the American football matches of his beloved team, the Kansas City Chiefs. Since the formalization of her relationship with Travis Kelce, the star of the music world has regularly come to support her companion, often with fervor. This did not escape the stadium cameras which regularly film the singer to the great dismay of certain grumpy supporters who readily criticize this exposure of the singer during the matches.

“The big difference between the Golden Globes and NFL games…”

On this subject, Taylor Swift did not mince her words in the interview given to Time. “I don’t know if I’m being shown too much and if I’m pissing off a few Dads, Brads and Chads”, commented the singer, taking up the expression “Dads, Brads and Chads” designating a group of men whose Opinion doesn’t matter.

Not kind to his detractors, it is quite natural that the interpreter of “Shake it Off” did not particularly appreciate the joke of the comedian Jo Koy, also master of ceremonies of the Golden Globes, this Sunday, January 7. The latter, who did not meet with great success with the audience with his jokes, said: “the big difference between the Golden Globes and NFL (National Football League) matches is that “There will probably be fewer Taylor Swift moments caught on camera tonight.”

Receiving this bit of humor, the American pop star didn’t even crack a smile, just taking another sip from his glass. In passing, the comedian attracted the wrath of the swifties, the singer’s very large community of fans.
