Many people don’t know this, but there was a time, in between filming “Shakespeare in Love” and “Sliding Doors,” that patron saint of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow, was in a punk band. They were called Cockjuice, and they played all the clubs on the punk circuit, amassing violent and excited crowds at ABC No Rio and squats around Europe. Gwyneth gained quite a reputation as an outspoken proponent of socialism — calling on Americans to take the streets to protest late ’90s Clinton-era fascist American policies, and the inheritance tax. She was known as an inveterate rabble-rouser and sometimes-drunk, whose pre-show routine always included at least a fifth of bourbon and a punch or two in the greenroom wall.
For several months, Cockjuice rode high on the fumes of DIY success. But then, one day, Gwyneth had a soul-searching revelation: acting and giving diet advice was where she was really needed. So she gave it all up — the shows, the glory, the post-show drunken fistfights — and settled down with the singer of Coldplay. Keep reading »
“I’m never going [to the Met Ball] again. … It was so un-fun. It was boiling. It was too crowded. I did not enjoy it at all.”
— You hear that, Anna Wintour? Gwyneth Paltrow did not enjoy her time at the Met Ball, and she will not be attending next year. So, on that note, is there an empty seat I could fill? … What about an empty dress? There’s gotta be an empty dress. [New York Post]
Gwyneth Paltrow generally leaves a bad taste in my mouth — a taste eerily reminiscent of wilted kale — but I am capable of appreciating aspects of her personality that are actually kind of endearing. Like the solid effort she put into the embarrassing task of imitating famous rappers like Jay-Z, Kanye West and Macklemore, on “Ellen” yesterday. Her Beyonce isn’t bad either. But that Chris Martin impression needs work.
To tell you the truth, I don’t really give a shit that Gwyneth Paltrow is selling bikinis for little girls through her website, GOOP. Gwyneth Paltrow is also the person who suggested your spring wardrobe could use a $1,615 black skirt. She’s not really the arbiter of sensibility or good taste, no matter how many thousand-dollar clothing items she convinces you that you just have to have. The bikini in question is a $45 miniature version for girls (pictured at right) that matches an adult design, all of which were created by designer Melissa Obadash for GOOP. I do think that bikinis are too grown up for five-year-olds; I also think that this battle against the sexualization of young girls has already been lost. Bikinis for little girls aren’t going to go anywhere. I wouldn’t buy a bikini for my own hypothetical kid because I just think one-pieces are more appropriate, but Gwynnie and her GOOPies can do what they want — and expect the rest of us to laugh at them.

Gwyneth Paltrow is trying to make up for being named one of the Most Hated celebrities in Hollywood by grabbing a guy’s junk. Did it work? Do we like her again?
Gwyneth has been busy promoting “Iron Man 3″ all over the world, and she was most recently on Graham Norton’s talk show in England. By the way, Graham Norton is hilarious and anyone who doesn’t watch his show should start watching ASAP.
With that being said, his show is quite different to most talk shows in the US. On Graham’s show, he brings all the guests for the night in at the same time, and they have to [GASP] interact with each other on the same couch. As you can imagine, it doesn’t necessarily work for celebrities with big egos. However, Gwyneth here seemed to get along with the other two guests like house on fire.

Tiffany blue is one of the most famous colors in the world. So it’s no surprise that Thursday night, as stars gathered at Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Ball at Rockefeller Center, there’d be a lot of blue on the red carpet. Gwyneth Paltrow wore a light blue Ralph Lauren number, while Kate Hudson did her best blue in Reem Acra. Jessica Biel paired her Tiffany’s jewelry with an Elie Saab gown, and Michelle Williams wore a somewhat shapeless Katie Ermilio gown. Model Cato van Ee also came dressed in blue. But we want to know: Who do you think looks best?
