Gwyneth Paltrow: Just As Delusional As Every Other Blogger

Sorry, just had to laugh about this one… a recent New York Times article harshly examined the skepticism that has been generated by Gwyneth Paltrow‘s lifestyle site, Goop.com.

Although Gwyneth reportedly refused to speak to the NY Times while the reporter, Bob Morris, was writing the article–with her publicist Stephen Huvane stating that it would be “’premature’ to discuss her lifestyle ventures,” for the purpose of the piece, it seems as though Gwynie has decided to peel back some of her silence about her internet project.

Speaking to People at a benefit in NYC for Bent On Learning, Gwyneth said, “I think the people who are criticizing it or criticizing the idea of it, don’t really get it, because if they did, they would like it.”

Paltrow went on to defend the validity of her website by commenting, “My friends call me all the time to say, ‘Where should I go?’ or ‘What should I do?’ And I thought, you know maybe some other people would be interested in it as well, so I started it, and it’s doing great.”

Oh if I had a dime for every time I heard someone say that…

What do you think of GP’s site, Goop.com? A waste of digital space, or a valuable new source of information?

  1. I love this site! I go there to find good places to go eat. I think Gwyneth has great taste, and funny, and is one of the most “real” celebs that I can think of. I’ve made some of the recipes on the site, and gone to some of the restaurants she suggested and the whole site is great. Don’t be haters.

  2. I love the website as well. What qualifies anybody to blog these days? Leave the girl alone, if you’re not interested don’t read it. I enjoy her tips escpecially the culinary ones.

  3. “because I felt like I had a lot of really useful information that I was privileged enough to get, because I have this amazing, super, fortunate life.”

    wow, thanks for humbling me in the most subtle way you know how.
    Stuff it queenie, I think I can manage my mediocrity without any of your advisements.
