Update on Fox – Swift

Today’s news on Michael J. Fox a 51 year old man who insulted a 22 year girl over her love life publicly (Taylor Swift) apparently apologized.  I have a son 25 and a daughter 28, and I know first hand that young people date often until they find the right person.  If I was Taylor Swift’s dad, and she is 22, beautiful, smart, and rich, I would advise her to be even more careful of who she stays with than she is now.  Even with the apology, having someone aged 51 dissing a 22 year old for not settling down with one person is terrible.  I can only hazard to guess how Michael J. Fox acted as a child star at age 22.  I doubt he was even as close to being normal and stable as Taylor Swift.  It is good he apologized, and just like when her award was yanked out of her hands, Taylor Swift stayed positive.  But why should she have to?  Why don’t people leave her alone?

Report: Taylor Swift touchy over love life jokes, accepts Michael J. Fox’s apology

Chart-topping albums and wheelbarrow-fulls of awards were once what Taylor Swift was best know for.

Not anymore.

After dating over the past four years a reported 13 guys, all of whom were famous or from famous families, and famously writing songs about several of them, the 23-year-old has become the subject of several unkind jokes.

And apparently it’s taking its toll.

“[N]ow she’s the butt of jokes on Saturday Night Live, in the tabloids and on the late night shows,” an insider told RadarOnline. “She laughed it off, but the jokes made about her at the Golden Globes got under her skin.”

It looks like she might be doing something to stop the onslaught.

Following the Golden Globes joke, in which host Tina Fey jokingly warned Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s handsome young son, Fox himself joined the fray, offering when asked: “Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? What a way to build a career. I wouldn’t even know who she was.”

Apparently the remark, even though it was said at least partially in jest, hit home, as Swift herself felt the need to let fans know that Fox had in fact apologized to her.

“Hey everybody, Michael J. Fox got in touch with me today and we are good,” Swift tweeted. “Thank you for having my back.”

According to RadarOnline’s source, the negative attention may end up having a positive outcome.

“She really wants to make an effort to slow down and not jump from boyfriend to boyfriend,” said the pal. “In a weird way all the negative press has really opened her eyes and will be good for her!”
