Time was, we didn’t care one way or another about Gwyneth Paltrow, she was just a head in a box at the end of Seven. (Um, spoiler alert.) But then she got über-famous, über-skinny, semi-British and thoroughly smug, so we turned on her. But deep in our heart, we do have the capability to forgive, and with her recent musical appearances, it seems like we might actually be developing a softish spot for her.
Paltrow’s performance at the CMA’s this week was actually tolerable, and the video of her performing Cee-Lo‘s “Forget You” on Glee is downright charming! Of course, we give partial credit to Cee-Lo just for writing such a kick-ass song that everyone should love (seriously, if you don’t love this song what’s wrong with you?). But Gwyneth really hooks us with her version of it. This is a big deal, especially considering how much we also hate Glee. Have we been wrong all these years? Is Gwyneth awesome and we’ve misunderstood her? We won’t go that far, but hey, Jay-Z loves her, so she can’t be all bad.
