Dad’s dating advice
Sam Fox, you heard it from your dad first. Taylor Swift is no good for you.
That’s right. Continuing a Tina Fey joke from the Golden Globes last weekend, Michael J. Fox at a book party Wednesday told the singer to “back off” from his 23-year-old son. (Not that there’s any rumor of interest, anyhow.)
“I don’t keep up with it all,” Michael J. Fox told reporters at Vulture.com, who actually asked him about this. “But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right?”
Indeed, the 23-year-old Swift is getting a bit of a reputation as a serial dater. Which in and of itself is no great surprise for a young celeb. The difference is that Swift’s exes tend to find themselves the focus of popular tween ballads. (Talk about never ever getting back together.)
