It was all a misunderstanding!! Jessica Hart may have said Taylor Swift didn’t ‘fit in’ at the Victoria’s Secret runway show but she is now backtracking! Hart originally said, “God bless her heart. I think she’s great. But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit.” But now VS’s chief marketing officer, Edward Razek, is backtracking on Harts comments.
“I have personally been in contact with Jessica Hart and she said she was ‘wildly misinterpreted’ and that she thought Taylor was ‘amazing,'” Razek told Us. “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.”
“I know that for fact. I talked to them. If you don’t believe me, look at the Angels Instagram posts. Wherever possible they posted shots of themselves with Taylor. In fact, they insisted she be in the 2013 Angels class picture that was taken at the end of the show, and nearly all asked to have a picture taken with her backstage. She is as good and strong and powerful and beautiful an artist as I’ve ever come across.”
“Taylor’s not ready to be an Angel? She’s more than ready to be anything she wants to be. I could not have more respect for this woman, or be more appreciative of her participation, and I can speak for the entire VS brand, the crew, and most certainly the Angels. We honestly could not have been happier with Taylor. She rocked the house. Sounded great. Looked stunning. And had the best time with the Angels. Some things I let slide. But not this. It couldn’t be more wrong.”
I am sure the reporter at WWD will have something different to say. Jessica spoke to Us Weekly about the incident saying, “I adore Taylor Swift, and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. What Taylor does on stage is nothing compared to what we do,” Hart tells Us. “I could never get up there and do what she does! She is a true rock star and she absolutely killed it the other night. Her song ‘Pieces’ was one of my favorite songs, and I own her first ever CD. I can’t imagine why I would have said anything bad about her.”
