Jessica Hart is taking back her comment that Taylor Swift "didn't fit" at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last week.
The Victoria's Secret model was quoted as criticizing 23-year-old Swift, who performed two songs during the annual fashion event in New York on Nov. 13.
However, Hart is now augmenting her statement, explaining her awe of the "Red" singer.
"I adore Taylor Swift and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show," the model told Us Weekly.
"What Taylor does on stage is nothing compared to what we do," Hart continued. "I could never get up there and so what she does! She is a true rock star and she absolutely killed it the other night."
As for her alleged disparaging comments from last week, Hart added, "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."
Furthermore, Victoria's Secret chief marketing officer Edward Razek said that Hart's comments were "wildly misinterpreted" and defended Swift's performance.
"[Hart] is stunned that anyone would think differently," he said. "And that's something we can all agree on."
The marketing expert went on to praise Swift's two appearances at the fashion show.
"I can tell you that everyone at Victoria's Secret was blown away by Taylor's performance," Razek said, according to Us Weekly. "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."
Nevertheless, last week, Hart's full commentary touched on Swift's experiences on-the-job.
"I think, you know what, God bless her heart," said the model who was among the lingerie-clad women at the event.
"I think she's great," Hart continued while speaking to Women's Wear Daily after the show. "But, I don't know, to me, she didn't fit."
Hart went on to explain her diss in-depth.
"I don't know if I should say that," the model admitted. "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. I think it comes with age. It's definitely the benchmark of all jobs."
