We were shocked when a VS Angel dissed Taylor Swift saying that she didn’t really fit in at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. However, the brand’s Chief Marketing Officer, Edward Razek is now coming to the defense of Jessica, explaining what she meant.
Jessica Hart’s Diss To Taylor Swift Explained
“I have personally been in contact with Jessica Hart and she said she was ‘wildly misinterpreted’ and that she thought Taylor was ‘amazing,'” Edward said in a new interview with Us magazine. “She is stunned that anyone would think differently. And that’s something we can all agree on.”

After the show, Jessica told WWD that she didn’t think Taylor could ever cut it as a VS model. “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,” Jessica said, causing quite the uproar. However, Edward explained that the girls were all in awe by the 23-year-old singer.
“I can tell you that everyone at Victoria’s Secret was blown away by Taylor’s performance,” he said. “She could not be more beautiful or talented, that we felt extremely lucky to have her. 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.”
That’s the truth — Taylor even cozied up to some of the Angels for an adorable photo shoot!
Taylor ‘Rocked The House’ At VS Show
So, what exactly did Jessica mean when she said “no” after being asked if Taylor could be a VS Angel.
“Taylor’s not ready to be an Angel? She’s more than ready to be anything she wants to be,” he told the mag. “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.”
Edward didn’t want to stand by and let people think the team didn’t appreciate and enjoy Taylor’s company and super sexy performance — because they all did.
Jessica Speaks Out On Taylor Again: ‘She Is A True Rock Star’
Jessica later backtracked on her comments. She told Us that she “adores” Taylor!
“What Taylor does on stage is nothing compared to what we do,” she said. “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.”
Aww, it’s great that she said that again. Edward also added that they were all in awe by her.
“We honestly could not have been happier with Taylor,” he added. “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. She is welcome back to do the show anytime she wants.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers — did Jessica mean to offend Taylor?
