Remember when Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart — you know, the gap-toothed one who’s never even worn the iconic Angel wings — dissed Taylor Swift? Turns out she doesn’t speak for all of VS with that comment! And she’s denying it slightly too.

Victoria’s Secret chief marketing officer Edward Razek made that abundantly clear.

“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 Weekly. “She is stunned that anyone would think differently. And that’s something we can all agree on.”

Hart was asked if she thought Swift could be an Angel and replied, “God bless her heart. I think she’s great. But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit.”

And um, she didn’t need to fit. She wasn’t hired to be a model, she was hired to be the talent, which requires a little more than looking good in a bikini and wearing an overabundance of bronzer.

Razek was very careful to make sure Swift knows she was loved. “I can tell you that everyone at Victoria’s Secret was blown away by Taylor’s performance,” he continued. “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. Razek added that the Angels all adored T-Swizzle. “I know that for fact. I talked to them. If you don’t believe me, look at the Angels Instagram posts,” he gushed. “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.”

He kept going! “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.”

Anyone else want to bet that Hart may not walk in the 2014 fashion show?
