I sort of casually mentioned this yesterday in a post, so I apologize for repeating myself, but also I just canNOT get over the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow is selling a $950 shot glass on her lifestyles website. A $950 shot glass! There are other products available in this collection, including a $600 jigger in the shape of a watering can, and $500 stirrers in the shape of golf clubs, and $400 ice tongs, OH AND ALSO $4500 glass decanters. Look, I know that there are a lot of extravagant ways for wealthy people to spend their insane amounts of money in this world, it’s just that so often they have the decency to keep that shit to themselves. I saw this interview with Gwyneth this morning (where she said that she was “literally a transvestite” at the Met Gala, which I don’t think is true? Not literally) where she explained that she knows that people have a lot of issues with her and that they think she “has too much” but that her life hasn’t been perfect and that she has “suffered so much.” Sure. The thing, once more, that she completely fails to even come close to recognizing much less acknowledging is that the way life works is that EVERYONE “suffers so much.” Whatever she is talking about, whether it’s the death of her father or the troubles in her marriage or maybe some hardship she overcame that she has somehow managed to not mention in an interview although I find that hard to believe since she is an open, poorly-written book, is just Standard Baseline Life Stuff. We all get dealt those cards, they’re unavoidable. We just don’t also the get the movie star, millionaire cards as well. She wants to be a martyr because her life isn’t JUST $950 shot glasses, it’s also the occasional argument. But OK, so she is confused about how life works and that is fine. Lots of people are. But, you know, most of the people who are confused about how life works don’t operate websites ABOUT HOW LIFE SHOULD BE LIVED. That’s kind of the rub right there. Now if you will excuse me, I have to go look up “broken record syndrome” on WebMD.
