“[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!

Gwyneth Paltrow looks mighty fine posing in nothing but fishnets and Louis Vuitton jewelry in the new issue of Vanity Fair. She could teach the “America’s Next Top Model” cadre a thing or two about looking innocent and thoroughly sexy at the same time. Smize away, girl. [VF] Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
Gwyneth Paltrow has to unwind sometime, right? Well, her blog post over at GOOP from yesterday has many people wondering if she uses a little herbal assistance in doing so. In yesterday’s post, she described the herbs and vegetables she’s planted in her garden for the summer and gave accompanying photos. In one of the images, she’s labeled a section of salvia. Now, she could be talking about a specific type of sage. Or she could be talking about salvia divinorum, the legal but mind-altering substance that lead Miley Cyrus to act all cray-cray in that video. I’m kind of hoping it’s the latter. Hey, maybe her “Glee” character Holy Holiday has rubbed off on her a bit. [GOOP, NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Let’s hope Adele’s ex-boyfriend doesn’t catch wind of this and demand royalties. Last night, “Glee” did a little tribute to Adele. During the episode “Prom Queen,” Rachel Berry came face to face with her ex, Jesse St. James (played by Jonathan Groff), while belting out “Rolling in the Deep.” He naturally joins in, making us wish she’d forget about Finn already.
But this isn’t the first time “Glee” has saluted Adele this season. Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow apparently didn’t do any knitting with grandma. When she appeared on “Chelsea Lately” this week, she and Chelsea Handler talked about their respective German grandmas. Gwyneth apparently called her mom’s mom “Mutti” and not in a good way. “My grandmother was a real c**t,” she said. “She basically hated my guts. She tried to poison my mother against me, but it didn’t work because I have a great mother. She was just tough, just tough. You look back and you think she must not have been very happy and she must have had a lot of pain because she was mean as hell.” Wow, using the c-word on someone who’s dead? Harsh.
