I never thought I’d have a nice word to say about Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop, but after reading this piece by one of the worst reporters of the century, I kind of like her.
I can’t transmit the pouty nuttiness of the reporter with a single quote but I still can’t resist posting one:
The In Goop Health summit was perhaps the most gracefully and elegantly executed event I’ve ever been to. There was food everywhere — small plates of ancient grains and salads and not a brown avocado in the bunch. There was keto food (which create ketones), vegan food (which doesn’t use animal products), paleo food (made out of, I don’t know, dinosaurs). Syringes of CBD oil. Coffee with pea milk. Nothing was rushed. Everything was plentiful. Somewhere during my reporting, I had stopped thinking about food deserts and people who didn’t even have access to ancient grains.
And it’s all like that. I now need a remedy to wipe this horrible, self-infantilizing, prissily virtuous writing from my brain.

It’s like someone turned Candy Crush into words….
Look at the article linked in the most recent post. It’s Angry Birds overate Candy Crush and destroyed Civilization with their Doom.
Reblogged this on James' Ramblings.
Paltrow would be easier to like if her company didn’t promote dangerous medical quackery like vaginal steaming and coffee enemas!
