They always say you can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friends nose, because they already have a full-time employee who’s job is doing only that. Earlier today Gwyneth Paltrow interviewed Jay-Z for her lifestyles site GOOP, and immediately afterward Jay-Z interviewed Gwyneth on his new man-GOOP site Life + Times. Jay-Z and Gwyneth’s friendship has always been a thing of wonder, but this time they take it to a whole new level. In her interview, titled “Straight Outta Compton?”, the rap superstar tells his bestie that he’s “very surprised at your extensive knowledge of hip-hop songs. Particularly how you can sing ’90s hip-hip songs word for word. I can’t even do that!,” while Gwyneth reps Biggie Smalls over Tupac: “Biggie by miles.” Jay-Z and Gwyn then wrote mash notes and had a pillow fight on 800-count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Meanwhile over on GOOP, you could tell Paltrow was practically weaving a friendship bracelet from newborn emu leather as she gushed about the fabulous Mr. Carter. “As someone who has walked through museums with you, eaten with you, heard music with you, I know firsthand how creativity in all areas lifts your consciousness,” she raves. Maybe after they’re done high-fiving for a thousand years, Jay-Z and Gwyn can sing a duet of Cee-Lo’s new song “Friend You,” then inhale each other’s farts out of $2,000 crystal cognac snifters. Friends 4 Eva!
Gwyneth Paltrow hid behind a scarf after getting late night drinks with Glee‘s Matthew Morrison in London this weekend, but it’s probably not because she’s banging the guy. The New York Daily News is trying to shut down any gossip, with a source saying Paltrow considers Morrison a “little brother.” Ouch! Even if Morrison is just a friend, we’re guessing he’d at least like to be seen as a sexually viable stud. After all, this is a guy who kisses Olivia Munn in public, moans about wanting to kiss Keira Knightley and tells everyone how much pipe he laid as a straight man doing Broadway musicals. Obviously, he feels he has an image to maintain.
With Morrison saying he hopes Gwyneth can join him on his upcoming summer tour, there’s still plenty of chances for the gossip to heat up (and where is her hubbie Chris Martin anyway?). Then again, we can’t really see their upcoming duet of “Over The Rainbow” being the soundtrack to a homewrecking. Cleopatra? Sure. Mr. & Mrs. Smith? Hell yeah. A song from the Wizard Of Oz? Not so much.
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 thatcreator 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.)
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-Zjust, 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!
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.

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.”
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.

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?!?”
