I Apologize in Advance: Gwyneth Paltrow Pretends to Be Country

Posted By on 10.13.10 at 03:58 PM

You know how when someone says "Smell this, it's really nasty," an alarming number of people will actually lean in and smell whatever it is? Something similar must be at work when people read a blog post telling them that there's a music video for the title song from the upcoming film Country Strong, where Gwyneth Paltrow plays an alcoholic country singer looking for a second shot at fame, and that in this video Gwyneth Paltrow actually sings and tries to act like a country singer—and then they click "play" anyway.

You can do so after the jump. It's really nasty.

Fuck that movie in the neck.

It's not just that Paltrow has a way of subtly saying with her eyes, "Yeah right, like I'm really only country famous instead of monumentally, globally famous." What really bums me out is the realization that there's no way for us to stop Gwyneth Paltrow from doing this kind of thing. Even if every record label in the world signed a pact to keep Gwyneth Paltrow from releasing an album, she could still press up a million copies of Gwyneth Paltrow Shits All Over Country Music, and I bet she wouldn't even have to dip into Chris Martin's "Yellow" money to do it. Gwyneth Paltrow will keep subjecting us to her singing voice until she either loses interest in having people hear her sing or dies. It'll probably be the latter.
