Chris Martin has a super-cool new girlfriend, so it behooves Gwyneth Paltrow to one-up him because conscious uncoupling is some hardcore shit. Which brings us to the President of the United States who, granted, is married, but if there’s one thing Gwyneth has taught us it’s that you can cut monogamy out just like gluten. Us Weekly reports:
She went on to talk about the importance of sustainable energy sources, and to praise Obama’s support for equal pay which Paltrow (who Forbes estimates earns an amazing $19 million a year) said was, “very important to me as a working mother.”
Then, overcome with nerves, the actress stumbled a little before passing the microphone off to the President, telling him flirtatiously, “You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.”
Forget the Obama shit. (Unless you’re Michelle, in which case, join forces with Martha Stewart. No mercy, no surrender.) Did Gwyneth Paltrow just call herself a “working mother” again? Goddammit. YOU’RE NOT HELPING. It’s one thing to say as a woman, or a considerate human being in general, that you’d like to see women receive equal pay. But when you go, “Well, as a working mother…” as a team of nannies watches your children in one of your several houses on different continents, it becomes way too easy to dismiss a legitimate topic because now it’s about Gwyneth Paltrow. And if there’s one thing people hate, it’s Gwyneth Paltrow. If given a choice between Gwyneth Paltrow or Ebola, they’d take their chances with Ebola. Provided they’re white.
