These days, everyone sends me Gwyneth Paltrow-related news stories. And there seems to be a lot of it, for whatever reason. We are living in the Age of Gwyneth, and I admit that I have become part of the problem, albeit a much smaller part than the gossip magazines that cover her every move. But this blog is focused on her cookbook, and my efforts to cook every recipe in said cookbook.
I don’t want this to become a gossip site, or a site where we needlessly harass Gwyneth because it’s the cool thing to do these days. So, feel free to send me all the Gwyneth news you want, because a lot of it is hilarious. But I won’t be posting about it unless it’s relevant to whatever I was already talking about.
And then you have days like today, where Gwyneth just LETS LOOSE, and you have to break your own rules.
First up, I woke up to learn that Gwyneth rapped “Straight Outta Compton” for some reason. And Lady Gaga was there? Whatever. And then, a few short hours later, the new GOOP arrived, with tips on spring fashion. “Boring,” I thought. Until I heard that the fashion tips cost a total of over EIGHTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS.
And then, last but certainly not least, my sister pointed me to this article, which contains the single greatest Gwyneth Paltrow quote to date:
“I literally do not have time to bathe let alone start a magazine.”
And that’s why I’m doing what I’m doing, I suppose.
