Gwyneth Paltrow is a country singer now

This just in: Gwyneth Paltrow is still annoying

It’s good to know that after all her hard work and years of sweat and toil, Gwyneth Paltrow was finally able to break through into the country music scene. From FOX:

Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is gearing up to perform at this year’s CMA Awards. She’ll sing the title track of her new movie, “Country Strong,” and will be joined by Vince Gill. Paltrow says she researched a lot of country music history for this role.

“I sort of started at the beginning with Hank (Williams) Sr. and Johnny Cash and really studied Dolly (Parton) and Loretta Lynn, and kind of just started at the beginning and went all the way through and found the people that I really love and who inspired me,” she told The Associated Press in a recent interview.

What does Gwyneth know about the country music scene? She’s never been divorced, she doesn’t have an old dog, and the only thing she knows about ranches is that’s where her organic free-range chickens are raised. Newsflash Gwyneth: Just because you studied country music for a few weeks doesn’t mean you “get it.” It means you’re a poser pretending to be something you’re not — like
splenda, margarine, or Tom Cruise.
