What Would Be Better Than Gwyneth’s GOOP?
Gwyneth Paltrow has an email newsletter named GOOP, which we told you about earlier. For a while now, we’ve wondered where the heck she came up with the name, and we finally have an answer. “G.P.” are Gwyneth’s initials, and she told The New York Observer that “Goop is actually a family nickname.” Gwyneth finds time in her busy life to put together these newsletters about once a week, and in each one she shares some information that will help you “nourish the inner aspect.” We’ve received Goop emails sharing Gwynnie’s recipe for buckwheat and banana pancakes, her favorite pubs in London, and advice from Deepak Chopra. It’s kind of interesting to see where the Oscar-winning actress drinks beer, but we could care less about reading what Chopra has to say about dealing with a pessimistic friend. Which brings us to our question: What famous women would we rather receive email newsletters from? Not like Tina Fey has time, but she’d probably write entertaining emails sharing how she manages her busy schedule, takes care of daughter Alice, and works toward global domination all at the same time. Zooey Deschanel seems like the kind of girl who would know all of the best vintage and thrift stores. Rihanna could tell us how to take fashion risks. Which celebrity do you wish had a lifestyle newsletter instead of (or in addition to) Gwyneth Paltrow?
