Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

Saving the best for last? Please! Let’s start our Monday morning off on the right foot, shall we, by checking out the best photos from last night’s Emmy Awards red carpet. And by “best,” I actually mean “worst” dressed, of course, because it’s the most fun.
“I am a great romantic — but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist. Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs. It’s like we’re flawed — we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge. That’s their problem but I really think that the more I live my life the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we’re all trying our best but life is complicated.”
– Gwyneth Paltrow shares her feelings on infidelity — and not judging those who stray — with The Daily Telegraph. I cannot help but wonder if Gwynnie is playing the “my friend” game here and the people she “respects and admires and looks up to” are actually herself and hubby Chris Martin. Not to start rumors or anything. I actually mostly agree with the sentiments she expresses above, although I don’t think it’s necessarily judgmental to say that infidelity sucks and cheating is a crappy thing to do.

“[Chris is] a musical genius. It’s like living with Picasso and being like, ‘Should I make a little something-something?’ … Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren’t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, ‘I’ve got this thing.’ That’s also part of it: keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.”
—Gwyneth Paltrow dishes to Elle about starting a fledgling music career, about running her website/newsletter GOOP, and of course about her rock star husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay. Make it reason number 11 we like Gwyneth. She seems to have a really down-to-earth perspective on love and marriage. [PopSugar] Keep reading »
Oh Gwyneth Paltrow, you silly fishmongering crack-smoking goop. You so crazy! In case you haven’t heard Gwynnie’s latest advice on how to live a fabulous, toxin-free existence, Her Paltrowness recently announced that she’d rather smoke crack than eat cheese from a can. Well, duh. Who wouldn’t?
Personally, I love that Gwyneth said she prefers crack to Cheez Whiz. Everybody’s pointing to this latest comment as further proof of Paltrow’s warped sense of reality, one where even mere commoners such as ourselves have access to kiddie couturiers and private macrobiotic chefs, but I disagree!

I’d like to think I’m an intelligent person. Intellectual, even. But it turns out I am drastically under-qualified to tutor Apple and Moses Martin, the seven- and five-year-old children of Coldplay’s Chris Martin and his wife Gwyneth Paltrow. The couple is currently interviewing candidates from Tutors-International.com to be based at their main residence in London and travel around the world with their family. The tutor must be fluent in ancient Greek, Latin, French and Spanish, able to play two instruments and athletic. (If you’re wondering about the ancient Greek and Latin, it turns out that was Chris Martin’s specialties in college.) Ideally, they should hold a degree from Oxbridge, too. Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow is full of surprises, and not just the salvia growing in her backyard. During an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show” this week, she shared that she is a huge fan of ’90s hip-hop. Apparently, she’s super into NWA and so Graham had her rap part of “Straight Outta Compton,” beeping out the bad words, natch. Oh, and with Geoffrey Rush beatboxing in the background. Keep reading »
“I have a great hangover cure. I take a cold shower in the morning and then I go into the sauna and drink a lot of water throughout the day. Green tea also helps!”
—Gwyneth Paltrow on how she recovers from a night of drinking. That sounds nice … if I had access to a sauna. For those of us who don’t have spas in our homes, I have my own hangover remedy: a hamburger (or a slice of pizza, whichever is in closer proximity), a Diet Coke, a large bottle of water, and as many Advil as I can handle. Once I get myself vertical, a jog around the block always sets me straight. Share your hangover cures in the comments — or tweet them using the hashtag #poorwomanscure. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
