Her weekly email newsletter Goop (which translates loosely to mean “How to be as fabulous as I think that I am”) caught Gwyneth Paltrow some flack.
The timing of the launch of Goop initially had skeptics wondering if Paltrow’s insight into diet, shopping and exercise would fit in the current economic climate. And now, a New York Times article blasts the site, citing a total lack of relevance by saying, “many critics find the enterprise fatuous and a bit puzzling.”
Little Gwynnie doesn’t understand the uproar and defends her endeavor. “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,” the Oscar-winner told People magazine.
I can understand her trying to be helpful and whatnot, but she needs to remember that most of us are not Madonna. In fact, I’d estimate that 99.99% of fit into that category.
