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.

I know I poop all over Gwyneth Paltrow and her lifestyle newsletter GOOP on a fairly frequent basis and that some of you don’t, uh, agree with me. To each their own! The thing is, I am able to put aside my personal distaste for GP and acknowledge that I absolutely love her style. With very few exceptions — the Alexander McQueen getup that made her boobs look like chicken cutlets, for example — I think Gwyneth looks flawless every time she walks out the door. Last week’s appearance on “Ellen,” for example — I adore the simplicity of this black and white outfit, especially because it is so easy to replicate on any budget. After the jump, the three keys pieces you need, all under $100, which means you’ll have money left over for that salade niçoise you’ve been craving. Keep reading »
“I went to L.A. the summer between my junior and senior year of high school and I discovered N.W.A which became my obsession. I was fascinated by lyrics as rhythm and how Dre had a such different cadence and perspective from say, Eazy-E, who I thought was one of the most ironic and brilliant voices hip hop has ever had. It was an accident that I learned every word of ‘Straight Outta Compton’ and to love something that A) I had no real understanding of in terms of the culture that it was emanating from and B) to love something that my parents literally could not grasp. But I was hooked. I can’t remember what I ate for dinner last night but I could sing to you every single word of N.W.A’s ‘F**k Tha Police.’”
— Gwyneth Paltrow is just full of surprises. First we find out she can sing, then we learn she can rap, too! Maybe this is why she and Jay-Z are such good pals. (America’s WASP princess also loves Nirvana, but I won’t torture you with those quotes.) Next we are going to find out she keeps a greenhouse somewhere in rural Connecticut where she grows her own chronic. [Life + Times] Keep reading »
Gwyneth Paltrow‘s annoying new cookbook My Father’s Daughter (subtitle: Combining Enough Nutrients To Qualify As “Food” For The Over-Privileged & Beautiful) did not need a dramatic reading by a beatnik in a beret to sound douchey. (Private cooking lessons with Jamie Oliver! Gazpacho in Spain! Silent meditations in Japan!) Yet this melodramatic send up is, dare I say, perfect. [You Tube via Jezebel] Keep reading »
is returning to “Glee
” and this time her character, substitute teacher Holly Holiday
, is teaching sex ed. In this clip, she rocks black leather, does a chair dance, and strips down while singing Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch” for Will Schuester and the kids of New Directions. There, oh yeah.
At the same time, Gwyneth Paltrow: The Album is even closer to becoming a reality. Keep reading »
Did Gwyneth Paltrow just go there? I can’t believe my ears. This is her version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” that will appear on her upcoming “Glee” episode. I’m all for the reprisal of Kelly Canter, but playing a country music star does not give her the right to try to play Stevie Nicks. My outrage-o-meter is blinking wildly. Maybe I’m just overreacting because Stevie is my spirit animal. What do you think of Gwyneth’s version of “Landslide”? [NY Mag] Keep reading »
Woo-hoo! It looks like our favorite substitute teacher, Holly Holiday (played by Gwyneth Paltrow), is returning to McKinley High
, and this time she’ll be teaching sex-ed. As predicted, it looks like Holly and Will Schuester will be hooking up this time around, much to Emma’s chagrin. “Maybe it’s time I learned a little bit about romance,” said Holly. “I happen to be an excellent educator,” he says before dipping her, as the two ballroom dance to Prince’s “Kiss.” Yes, please!
