We know we’ve poked fun at Gwyneth Paltrow for a myriad of celebrity sins: telling working moms to just get an assistant, rapping in public, invading our precious Glee on multiple occasions, um, Country Strong. All that would be instantly forgiven, however, if GPal manages to make this Go-Gos musical a reality. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Paltrow is currently “negotiating to collaborate” with the ’80s pop band to produce the musical; Belinda Carlisle and her fellow band members are allegedly considering the option to pen new songs. You know…maybe there’s a reason Gwyneth’s traditional-style musical career never really took off. Well…there are probably a lot of reasons her musical career never took off, but this is would make it all worth while!
Of course, even without Paltrow’s pull a Go-Go’s musical is a genius idea. “Our Lips Are Sealed”? Please. Mamma Mia! already turned the oeuvre of ABBA into a musical, and they didn’t even have” Vacation” to work with! On a related note, you just know the show is going to be titled We Got The Beat. We’re calling it now. We’re also calling Edible Arrangements now to send Gwyn a little “We’re Sorry We Doubted You” gift. She’ll eat cantaloupe, right? Of course she will. It is the second classiest melon..
