Gwyneth Paltrow is the Least Embarrassing Person in This Video
2:00 pm, January 2nd | by Colette McIntyre
In 2012 it was trendy to snark about the free trade vegan fat-free gluten-free no-carb marshmallow that is Gwyneth Paltrow and her GOOP kingdom and, as demonstrated by how the Internet is reacting to this video of Paltrow dancing to “Run This Town” on New Year’s Eve, it seems that things won’t be much different in 2013.
Maybe it’s because I grew up on Long Island and have been to enough sweet sixteen bashes to know just how bad mom dances moves can get, but I don’t think Gwyneth is all that embarrassing onstage with Jay-Z and husband Chris Martin at the Barclays Center. I mean, does anyone else notice how Martin is just flopping around the stage like a ragdoll? His dancing reminds me of Bambi learning how to walk. Yet I think the most embarrassing person in the video is the guy who wouldn’t stop pressing the air horn button in the first twenty seconds of the song, as if it’s some Hot 97 remix.
(Shouldn’t even need to be said, but obviously Jay-Z’s puffy jacket and tuxedo combo is flawless.)
We think everyone should throw another new year’s resolution onto their list: leave Gwyneth alone! There are plenty of other super rich, super successful women to be mad at this year. She should get a break.
