If you thought Adele was going to be the only target of Joan Rivers' recent mean streak, then you're sorely mistaken. Two more celebrities came under Rivers' fire when the comedian visited Live with Kelly and Michael -- and this time Rivers got even nastier.
"Taylor Swift's knees have been together more than Melissa and I," Rivers said crudely, via Zap2it. "If you've broken up with nine people in nine months, maybe you should douche. I say this as a loving grandmother. I say this with love."
But sweet little Taylor wasn't the only target of Rivers' attack. She also got mean towards Angelina Jolie.
"Not a bad word about that wonderful slut," Rivers said. "We work together for the U.N. We do things for children. We either sell or buy, we do something wonderful for children. And then we drink at night."
Rivers continued, "She said to me the other night, 'If I can make one person happy Joan, I die content.' I said, 'Easy. Give Jennifer Aniston back her husband.'"
For those of you who need a refresher, the 79-year-old attacked Adele's weight when she was visiting Late Show with David Letterman earlier this month.
"She's a chubby lady who's very, very rich, and she should just calm down, or lose weight," Rivers said. "I took out an ad on [Adele's] ass. And then I had room for lots of other ads."
Obviously this is Rivers' brand of comedy, and she's been doing what she does for longer than all three of these celebrities have been relevant. We get that most topics should be safe under a comedic umbrella, but the jokes that Rivers is making towards Swift and Jolie are just old and rehashed. Yes, we get it, Swift has dated a lot of guys. And yes, Jolie stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston eight years ago. There's no stopping Rivers from mocking those in the celebrity culture around her. But, at the very least, could she makes her jokes a bit timelier and more original?
