Gwyneth Paltrow hits out at her critics

Gwyneth Paltrow hits out at her critics

It appears that Gwyneth Paltrow and her royal Goopiness aren’t making any friends STILL. Poor thing, she should really hide her head in the sand and come out NEVER. Now, she is referring to being famous as some “bloody, dehumanizing war.”

From the source:

“It’s taken me a long time to get to the point where I can see these things and not take it as a personal affront and a hurt. I see myself as a chalkboard or a whiteboard or a screen, and someone is just putting up their own projection on it,” she said.

“It has nothing to do with me. They have an internal object, and they’re putting it on me. I kind of look at it as, ‘Wow this is an interesting social experiment.’ You’re talking about a blind stranger having feelings about you. It can only be projection.”

The conversation about celebrity and the Internet, she said, is part of a larger one about “containment and self-regulation” online.

“Our culture is trying to wrestle with the idea that everybody has a voice, and how it’s unimportant and really important at the same time,” said Paltrow. “We’re in this very adolescent phase. It’s dangerous, [because] we lack the capacity to say, ‘Why does this matter to me, and who am I in this?’ ‘Why am I having opinions about Angelina Jolie’s operation?’ ‘What is unhealed in me?’ ‘Why am I using the Internet to do this?’”

She compared the experience of living through vitriolic Internet commenters to surviving a war.

“You come across [online comments] about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing. It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing, and then something is defined out of it,” she said. “My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.”

This year may be a tipping point for Internet trolls, she hopes: “It’s almost like we’re being given this test: Can you regulate yourself? Can you grow from this? Can you learn? You can make it as bloody as you want to, but is that the point?”

“Bloody, dehumanizing war” — She uses these words and we do not think they mean what she thinks they mean.

Gwyneth Paltrow Consciously Uncouples from the Met Gala

PUNK: Chaos To Couture Costume Institute Gala

Gwyneth Paltrow continues to cut things out of her life – the latest victim is the Met Gala.  Apparently she thinks the event ‘sucked’ last year and has no interest in attending this year.

After attending last year’s Met Gala, Gwyneth Paltrow was not impressed, stating ‘I’m never going again’ before ranting about her displeasure with the event. 

Apparently, the 41-year-old actress is staying true to her word, as she will be skipping out on this year’s festivities on May 5, coinciding with Cinco de Mayo. 

‘Gwyneth will not be in New York and is unable to attend the ball,’ the Avengers star’s rep told Threads magazine.

According to the New York Post, Paltrow was extended an invitation, despite disparaging comments she made about the Costume Institute Ball hosted by Vogue last year. 

‘Do you want me to be honest? It sucked,’ she said during an interview with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O at the time.

‘You always think, “Oh my god, it’s gonna be so glamorous and amazing and you’re going to see all these people,” and then you get there and it’s so hot and it’s so crowded and everyone’s pushing you.’

Furthermore, Gwyneth was not charmed by last year’s theme – Punk: Chaos to Couture. 

‘I think we’re all a bit old to dress up punk,’ she said. ‘I just went as kind of normal.’

Gwyneth also did not quite approve of Kanye West’s behaviour at the gala, where he performed. 

‘Kanye West was playing and he was all furious and he threw his microphone down and it was all drama,’ the Iron Man star said. ‘I don’t know why.’

If there is anything Paltrow seems to avoid- it’s drama.

Chris Martin Talks Gwyneth Paltrow Split

Chris Martin Talks Gwyneth Paltrow Split

Just a month after their split was announced, Chris Martin is now opening up about his divorce from Gwyneth Paltrow.

He sat down with Zane Lowe of BBC Radio 1 and discussed his band’s new album, his thoughts on One Direction and his private life. Of his marriage, he said, “I wouldn’t use the word breakdown. This was more a realization about trying to grow up basically…if you can’t open yourself up, you can’t appreciate the wonder inside. So you can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way.”

He continued, “What changed for me was, I don’t want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure… About two years ago I was a mess really because I can’t enjoy the thing that we are good at and I can’t enjoy the great things around me because I’m burdened by this — I’ve got to not blame anyone else and make some changes.”

He added, “Up to a certain point in my life I wasn’t completely vulnerable and it caused some problems. If you don’t let love really in then you can’t really give it back.”

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Planning A Divorce Book

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Planning A Divorce Book

Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband Chris Martin have “consciously uncoupled” and now she plans on telling the world about divorce in a new book that she’s writing. Ugh. This woman. She does something once and thinks that she’s suddenly the expert.

She is said to be in the process of writing the self-help book about the art of divorce and of course, it will be called “Conscious Uncoupling”. A source said, “In typical Gwyneth fashion, she thinks she will eventually become the expert on divorce and how to do it in a better way.”

In addition, she also hopes that Chris will write the forward for the book. Even worse, she is also throwing a divorce party. The spy said, “She wants to throw a big party with her closest pals — women only — to let the world know she’s happier than ever about her new single status.”

Ugh. This broad.
