Talk about awkward timing!
On Sunday, it was revealed that music icon, Joni Mitchell, doesn't want Taylor Swift to play her in an upcoming biopic based on the book, Girls Like Us.

Joni shot down the rumor in The Sunday Times, simply stating:
"I squelched that! I said to the producer, 'All you've got is a girl with high cheekbones.'"
Woah, talk about a MAJOR burn.
One, not only is Mitchell one of Tay's idols, but we'd strongly argue that the Bad Blood singer is more than just a pretty face. Have you checked out the sales for 1989 yet, Joni?!
To make this snub even worse, in the December issue of Southern Living, Tay revealed her dream duet would be with Joni (or Chris Martin), a hope which now seems to be dashed in light of the Big Yellow Taxi singer's recent comments.
When ask about a dream collaboration, the Nashville cutie exclaimed:
"Chris Martin or Joni Mitchell—but I think so highly of them, I'd never want to ask."
Aw, we really feel for Swifty in this situation — it must be hard to be shot down by your musical idol! Well, at least there's still hope for a collab with Chris!
Keep your head up, girl! We and MILLIONS of fans know you're more than just cheekbones (which are flawless, btw)!
