It’s okay to hate on Gwyneth Paltrow (UPDATED)

She sure has it rough.

“I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening,” said the polarizing Paltrow. “When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

“Some days I feel like everyone in my world has plugged themselves into my kidneys. I’m so tired.”

“I think that women, especially women in my job, come to me because they know I’m very loving and nonjudgmental and I’m not competitive, and I’ve been through a lot.” [Harper’s]

“Having survived her 10th London winter (she got through January by assigning it “international month,” and amusing Moses and his big sister, Apple, 9, with a visiting Italian chef, Japanese anime screenings, and hand-rolled-sushi lessons, no less), Paltrow admits that her dreams of relocating the family to their recently acquired residence in Brentwood, California, are becoming ever more urgent. [Harper’s Bazaar]

On taking a retreat to Sedona, Arizona:

“I’ll never forget it. I was starting to hike up the red rocks, and honestly, it was as if I heard the rock say: ‘You have the answers. You are your teacher.’ I thought I was having an auditory hallucination.”

Pot to kettle: F*** you!

Ted Cruz, in his bid to become a one-man branch of government, actually said this Tuesday as the U.S. Senate debated funding the government:

“There is a tendency in this town toward brinksmanship, towards pointing to events that can cause instability and uncertainty and using them to try to get your way.”

 

Solemn celebrities sermonizing smugly

There’s an unmistakable template for socially conscious videos featuring politically active celebs, from the “Give Peace a Chance” reboot on the eve of the first Gulf War to the insufferable “Yes We Can” dirge produced by will.i.am.lame in 2008.

The latest, “I Am Bradley Manning,” is as laughably smug as you’d expect, with Maggie Gyllenhall and Moby trading polemics alongside Phil Donahue and Oliver Stone. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, up pops Russell Brand.

 

 

Advice from the self-proclaimed patriot who shit his pants to avoid military service

Nothing like winning gracefully — idiot Ted Nugent, who ranks ahead of the Matador as Detroit’s most lamentable export, thinks Robert Zimmerman should sue Trayvon Martin’s parents.

Trayvon Martin’s vicious attack on George Zimmerman and Martin’s tragic death have no doubt surely dragged Mr. Zimmerman through 18 months of untold emotional hell, pain, distress, anguish, fatigue, nightmares and financial ruin. Again, following the narrative of the pro-Trayvon media types and other race-baiters, if Trayvon Martin was a minor, then Trayvon Martin’s parents may be held liable for the emotional pain and suffering Mr. Zimmerman has been put through for the past 18 months, and surely for the rest of his life.
