Gwyneth Paltrow’s Recording Career On Hold, Deal Falls Apart

|

Gwyneth Paltrow overrating the world’s interest in her extracurricular activities? No. According to Page Six, a record deal for Paltrow with Atlantic Records has fallen through, possibly over how much money she’d have taken home.  “Atlantic bosses were very interested,” said their source. “But then the talks halted and the deal fizzled out. There was a rumor that Paltrow wanted $1 million to sign, but that is a ridiculous figure. Atlantic is still interested in signing her.” Says her rep, “[Gwyneth] still has not decided if she wants to record an album…”it is still something she is considering.”

There’s always the possibility that, with a cookbook, a newsletter, two children and…oh yeah, an acting career, Gwynnie simply didn’t want to bother with recording an album unless she was certain to reap a decent payday. After all, the Country Strong soundtrack failed to go gold despite the Oscar nomination, and Paltrow’s singles only scrapped Billboard’s Country Singles chart (her duet with Tim McGraw only hit #35)…while Sara Evans‘ single from the album hit #1. Looks like hardcore GOOPsters will have to settle for Glee-related collaborations and talk show renditions of “Gangsta Gangsta” for the near future.
