The Soapbox: “Smug” Is Just A More Polite Way To Say “Bitch”

Gwyneth Paltrow 092514

Gwyneth Paltrow, who loves juice cleanses and is responsible for bringing the term “conscious uncoupling” to the mainstream, is no stranger to insults. The skinny, rich, blonde Hollywood star gets plenty of flak for her lifestyle brand GOOP, where she sells eco-friendly nail polish and monogrammable reclaimed-wood skateboards while sharing stories from her fabulous life and namedropping her celebrity pals.

Paltrow’s tone deafness at trying to come across “accessible” to her largely female fanbase is ripe for criticism, and it has become a touchstone of the way that many stars fail at appearing relatable to us regular folks. But there’s one word in particular that keeps coming up in criticisms of Paltrow and others like her that deserves a closer look: “smug.”

Perhaps you’ve heard of this little band of British moppets called The Wanted? They’re sort of like One Direction (or so I’ve been told), but less squeaky clean. And apparently, one way they’ve attempted to mold their bad boy image is by slagging off Christina Aguilera after meeting her at a taping of “The Voice.” This past April, the lads were doing an interview with Now FM and referred to her as a bitch. Member Tom Parker (he’s the one whose gaping maw is open so wide you can see his tonsils in the pic above) said,  “She might not be a bitch in real life, but to us, she was a total bitch. She just sat there and didn’t speak to us. Wouldn’t even look at us.” I’d argue that Xtina shouldn’t have to look at anybody she doesn’t want to — especially if they happen to be foul-mouthed British teens. And also? Does a woman have to pay attention to a dude just because he wants her to? (#rhetoricalquestion). Keep reading »

A poem posted online, which RollingOut.com claims was written by the rapper, says he’ll no longer use that “degradation.” Read it, after the jump! Keep reading »

Zooey Deschanel Says We’re “All Bitches”

“['500 Days Of Summer' was] actually very misunderstood. I can’t tell you how many guys, and girls, are like, ‘You did him wrong!’ What, she’s a bitch because she didn’t want to date that guy? So? Are we bitches because we have our own opinions? If that makes me a bitch, or that makes women bitches, then maybe we’re all bitches.”

Zooey Deschanel comes to the defense of manic pixie dreamgirls everywhere who got a bad reputation from the way her flick “500 Days Of Summer” ended. I definitely don’t understand why anyone would believe Summer was a “bitch” just because she fell in love with someone else. Anyway, between this comment to New York magazine and the angry letter Zooey wrote to Vogue magazine as a 17-year-old, I think I’ve found a new feminist in Hollywood! [New York] Keep reading »
