Gywneth Paltrow Is Glee Creator’s Muse? Oh Hells No.

Let me begin this post with a disclaimer: I, Kate Spencer, find Glee to be insufferable and therefore haven’t tuned in since last season, except when I’m forced to pay attention to the show for work-related reasons. I know this opinion is unpopular, and in fact I work alongside many people who are diehard Gleeks (hi guys). But it’s just not my thing. (Young adult fiction? Now that I can dork out about!) My point in telling you this is to emphasis that I.AM.BIASED. I am coming into this already annoyed by all things Glee.

So it should come as no suprise that I morphed into Kristin Wiig‘s Aunt Linda character when I read that creator Ryan Murphy called Gwyneth Paltrow Glee’s “muse.” Whaaaaat? Oh brother. Not only is the Goopster returning to the show for more flat singing and awkward clomp-dancing, but Murphy says, “Gwyneth is sort of the muse of the show. I’m friendly with her. And Brad [Falchuk] has become quite friendly with her. She’s also somebody who I write on the weekends and say, ‘What do you think about this for an episode even if you’re not in it?’ She has opinions. She’s great.”

I don’t doubt that Gwyneth is the kind of girl you’d want to shoot the s— with over a tequila shot or five. After all, she sent us an email filled with cocktail recipes today. Girlfriend is cool, enviably so. But just because she can act and cook and get away with giving her kids ridiculous names does not mean she can sing. So why are we enabling her, America? (Ahem – I’m looking at you, Ryan).

Watch Gwyneth’s most recent “performance” on Glee and tell us – is this muse-worthy? (The answer’s obviously no, because like I said before: I’m biased. Harumph.)


Gwyneth Paltrow’s Music Career Legitimized With Record Deal

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for/expecting/(dreading?). Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly about to sign a record deal with Atlantic Records to produce a country-pop album. Don’t let that fool you into thinking Gwyneth will just be recycling her Country Strong role, because she says she also has plans to record with her BFF Jay-Z just, you know, because she can. So after months of listening to Gwynnie sing at awards shows and on Glee, what do you think? Are you psyched for her to create an entire album, or should she leave the music alone and let the pros like hubby Chris Martin handle it? Tell us what you think in our poll!

Oscar Fashion Face-Off: Nicole Kidman Vs. Gwyneth Paltrow

While the 2011 Oscars red carpet was ruled by graceful, grand gowns, a few ladies did try to break out of the mold. Gwyneth Paltrow‘s golden Calvin Klein number stood out both in shape and style (though Gwyneth wore the Michael Kors gown from her Country Strong number at the afterparty)  , while Nicole Kidman‘s Christian Dior looked like she’d gone MacGyver on a tablecloth, with unflattering fabric bunching up on the hips. What do you think?

Celebrities Party It Up At The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

How gorgeous did everyone look at the massive Vanity Fair Oscar party at the Sunset Tower in West Hollywood! We had already seen the likes of winners Natalie Portman and Colin Firth at the show, but plenty of other celebrities, who we hadn’t necessarily focussed on, came out to play. And one couple who got adorably frisky together were Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who held hands and were quite cozy through out. Can we also say Selena rocked it in a gorgeous red Dolce & Gabbana gown? Sure it’s grown up, but Ms Gomez pulled it off admirably especially with the Biebs accessorizing her arm! She also was cutesy with pal Taylor Swift who sparkled (as usual) in a strapless gold beaded Zuhair Murad mini dress.

Gwyneth Paltrow also changed out of her Oscar gown into the Michael Kors number she wore to perform onstage, and posed with buddy Cameron Diaz. The latter’s legs went on for miles in a flirty short-short Carolina Herrera. Other couples included Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel who wore sexy Versace, and Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin who looked great in a red Monique Lhuillier dress. For a fun gallery of stars at arguably, the most important post-Oscar bash, check out our gallery below. [Photos: Getty Images]

Gwyneth Paltrow Brokers Peace Between Glee And Kings Of Leon

If anyone can heal the world with a quick text message, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow. Seems that Glee‘s most famous guest star has brokered peace between the show and it’s most hated enemy, the Kings Of Leon, and she did it all with a few taps on her iPhone. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Paltrow got Ryan Murphy and the members of Kings Of Leon to apologize for all their various jabs at one another via text message, and the official word from all parties is that “it’s all good now.” That sounds like something you’d expect to hear if The People’s Court was presided over by Matthew McConaughey, isn’t it? “Are you guys both still mad? No? S’all good now.”

To refresh your memory, Murphy was vocal about his anger toward the group for not allowing their songs to be used on Glee, and in response, drummer Nathan Followill Tweeted that Murphy should get therapy and buy a new bra, which came off as homophobic, to say the least. But now, finally we can rest easy knowing that Paltrow The Negotiator has healed this gaping pop culture wound. We’re going to assume she was also behind Glee‘s reconciliation with Lindsay Lohan, and that she’s currently hard at work convincing Jay-Z and Beyonce to stay together too. (Man, we don’t even want to joke about those two breaking up. It just can’t happen.) This is all proof once again that there is nothing Gwyneth can’t do.

Gwyneth Flashes Panties At The Grammys

While cheering on Best Album of the Year winner Arcade Fire at last night’s Grammy Awards, it seems Gwyneth Paltrow could have used some support of her own. We can guess why the dude sitting behind her kept mum, but why didn’t her BFF Beyonce whisper to give her dress a tug? Apparently the inner layer of her otherwise sheer lace mini hiked up as she rocked out, revealing what could easily be the least embarrassing arse in Hollywood. In fact, if we worked so hard on keeping our bums taut and tiny, we probably would have skipped the nude slip altogether. Take a closer look at Gwyneth’s wardrobe malfunction below.

They’re On The Wrong Track, Baby, They Were Dressed This Way: Top 10 Grammy Awards WTF Fashion Moments

This year’s Grammy Awards were very good to Lady Antebellum and Arcade Fire (winners of Song/Record of the Year and Album Of The Year, respectively). They were not, however, quite as good to the ten people that you’ll see below. Whereas the likes of Rihanna and Jennifer Lopez scored high in our gallery of the Top 15 Sexiest Grammy Awards outfits, we had some reservations about some of the fashion choices made by Lady Gaga, Kate Hudson, Cee Lo Green, Lenny Kravitz and more this evening. Sure, some of these outfits weren’t meant to be taken seriously (hi Cee Lo!), but they still had us scratching our heads and asking ourselves, “WTF?!?”

Gwyneth Paltrow Says GOOP Haters Are “Mean”

Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t care what you think. Or rather, she cares what you think, but doesn’t really. Unless it’s nice. Or something. Anyway, the point is that Gwyneth knows people hate her newsletter GOOP—but she’s not going to stop anytime soon. “Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you,” she told Harper’s Bazaar UK. That’s totally fine. I don’t care. I don’t read any of it. My thing with GOOP has always been, if you don’t like it, then don’t log onto it.” See, our thing has been, if you don’t like it, write about it and read something hilarious about it—you know, contribute to the discussion! But we can agree to disagree.

Shockingly, Paltrow almost considered just taking her wisdom and going home. “Here were a couple of times when I thought, ‘I’m just gonna stop doing it. People are so mean to me. I don’t want to do it.’ But then I was like, ‘Who cares what some lame person out there says?’ I was in Italy once, and this old man came up to me and said, ‘I had the best time in Nashville because of GOOP.’ And that is so worth it to me.” It wasn’t Silvio Berlusconi, was it? Bet it was.

Gwyneth Paltrow Flashes The Camera In London

If Gwyneth Paltrow can’t enter a car gracefully while wearing a short dress, then no one can. One lucky paparazzo got themselves a glimpse at Gwynnie’s panties before she zoomed off from the Mayfair Hotel in London to Take That singer Gary Barlow‘s birthday party. While we’re far too bashful to share the goods up top, the uncensored photo appears in the gallery below, you dirty little perv.

And in case you’re feeling guilty, maitre d’ turned tell-all author Abbe Diaz says Gwyneth has a “passive-aggressive comportment,” when she’s out in public, “meant to unnerve the plebeians.” That should help.
