Maybe this she could write a song about it? It seems the supposed feud between Taylor Swift and Victoria's Secret model Jessica Hart was all a misunderstanding.

Hart spoke with Us Weekly exclusively about the surprising comments she made to WWD about Swift's cameo on the runway at last week's big Victoria's Secret show: "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 'Fearless' 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."

It all began when Hart told WWD that the Grammy winner wouldn't make a good lingerie model and "didn't fit" at the famed fashion show. "I think what you find is that for a lot of us, we've been working for 14, 15 years; what it takes to make it here comes from experience and confidence and knowing how to be confident with yourself," Hart explained. "I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."

Swift never responded, but the brand's chief marketing officer, Edward Razek, told Us that the comments were misinterpreted

"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, and that she is welcome back to do the show anytime she wants."
