Gwyneth Paltrow in Harper's Bazaar; Doesn't Care If People Are Mean To GOOP

According to March Issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, Gwyneth Paltrow almost gave up her pretentious GOOP blog forever, until an old man gave her the reason to keep on writing about pretentious stuff.

"Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you. 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. There 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.”


In some ways I sympathize with Gwyneth even though in real life she would just snub me for not being worthy of her presence. Sometimes bloggers get criticized because we post materialistic things.

But does Gwyneth really think she is giving us valuable life lessons when she blogs about the fancy hotels she stayed in Paris where they won't even let regular people use the lobby washroom, how she copes with stress by escaping to the country side in France while we cope through a bottle of Vodka, and spending £345 on a pair of children’s boots or $425 on a detox kit to cleanse your body where a $25 East Indian meal will do the same thing, but just won’t come out of the other end as graciously?

These are all great life tips but Gwyneth missed the most very important one: make sure you came out of a rich lady’s va-jay-jay at birth. Too bad many of us don’t have the time and money to do things she suggest on Goop as we are too busy working just to pay for the roof over our heads.

  5. Interesting. I had no idea GOOP existed until this morning... Is she really the one writing about all of it? She must have people writing for her...

  6. I am not a fan of Gwyneth's personality either...I think she is really beautiful and is probably a kind person but I agree that she's out of touch with reality. Maybe GOOP isn't meant for us normal folk. :)

  7. Uh, I actually kinda like Goop. She's optimistic and provides useful information about living a better quality of life. Plus, I've used a couple of her recipes!

  14. She has a blog? hmmm...I might check it out, but yeah your right. You need that gold spoon in your mouth. Oh well...next life.

  15. Hahaha, I ALWAYS (and I mean ALWAYS) look forward to reading your satires about celebrities. Best part of this post - "make sure you came out of a rich lady’s va-jay-jay at birth". Well done, well done!

  16. i love Gwyneth and I think it's normal to envy the rich people but let's be honest how many of us dream about having her life ? i guess 90% or more ..right ? we might never have her life but we can still experience it trough imagination. I might never visit New Zeeland but reading a book about this country will enrich my knowledge and soul.

  17. interesting, like many above, I didn’t know she hv a blog until now. but I guess she felt like the rich ppl deserve to have a blog too?! ^^ idk. I didn’t really check the blog out~ but i like the simple design & I think it’s cool that we can get to know her a little bit more through her blog, maybe we can’t really relate to her ~ but we can’t all relate to everyone right ~~~

  18. Meh, it's the same thing as getting worked up over Vogue and how it's not accessible for us ordinary folks. You can get angry about how there's this whole world of stuff that you can't afford, or you could just shrug it off and get on with your life.

  20. I really want to read this mag (my dear boyfriend buys me everymonth) and see the entire thing. I didn't knew she had a blog. Sometimes is complicated to talk about material things. I'm a lucky girl and I can afford some nice bags and travels but I try to talk about it in a natural way, knowing that many people that reads my blog can't afford those things. So I go Prada and then I go Zara in 10 seconds. (I work for Zara now so F*** Prada) But what I really don't do and don't like to see is talking about money... Ok! The other day I bought a pair of shoes for less than 5€ and I wrote that. But I never mentioned how it costed some more expensive things I use in my daily looks. It's not classy at all or I should say: tacky? Well, one way or another I'm going to visit her blog and soon I'll give you a more informed opinion.

  21. Lol!! Even though I'm soooo annoyed by Gwenth, I was actually fan of GOOP! Call me crazy, but some of her stuff is alright ;o)

  22. She needs makeup desperately the eyes are good here but her lips still need lipstick. they're still too thin. Other than that it's gorgeous

  23. gwyneth looks gorgeous! i've never read her blog. but i know dan from mtv canada made 'doop' and i loved reading it! i wonder if he still does it.

  24. Hahaha I literally just finished an Indian meal- good cleansing like you say ;) She is a bit snobby but absolutely gorgeous and a great singer (just saw her in Glee!) xo Emily

  25. Hilarious as always girl. I started reading GOOP recently (there are some great recipes listed). But you're so right - some of the stuff is definitely for someone used to living in a different price range!

  30. So true what you say! I would have to check her site and then I'll have my own opinion. But also, anyone should be able to post about what they like... that's also true.
