After Jessica Hart spoke out about how Taylor Swift was not a good “fit” for the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last week, the model is backpedaling on her statement.
“I adore Taylor Swift and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show,” Hart tells E! News. “Taylor’s amazing musical performance on that runway is nothing compared to what we do. 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.”
The Victoria’s Secret angel is now full of compliments for Swift. “Her song ‘Fearless’ is 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,” Hart says.
So what were Hart’s words against Swift, exactly? The model told Women’s Wear Daily at the show’s after party that she wasn’t entirely sold on Swift being a part of the annual lingerie fashion show. “I think, you know what, god bless her heart. I think she’s great. But, I don’t know, to me she didn’t fit. I don’t know if I should say that,” Hart said. And when asked whether Swift could pull off being a Victoria’s Secret model, the 27-year-old replied, “No.”
The model’s rep says that she was misinterpreted by a reporter who “caught her on her way into the Victoria’s Secret after party” and that she “truly has nothing against Swift and happens to be a fan of the singer.”
