I know that you are reading the headline and thinking that I have lost my mind. I haven't lost it all. I just love celebrities who consistently just do things or say things which are totally unrelated to anything that occurs in the real world or relevant.
Gwyneth Paltrow, in addition to all the other ways she is trying to convince you that she is normal and an “everyday person” has now decided to publish a travel guide to London. This being Gwyneth it won't be an ordinary run of the mill guide to London. It seems that Gwyneth is besieged by her friends for information on London all of the time, and so Gwyneth, bring uniquely qualified to give advice on all things London has decided to give you a taste of her London.
“Many of my friends, or friends of friends, have asked me for 'my London'.” Gwyneth feels that her London is the London all of you should see as well, and if you don't see her London than, you are just not doing it right. Her London consists of you spending $1,000 a night on hotels. Michelin starred restaurants and the places where she shops for clothes. Uh huh. Yep, “everyday people” will just be clamoring for that. To make herself seem normal, Gwyneth offers a pub suggestion but you get the feeling she has never been in one before and if offered Shepherd's Pie would check to make sure it didn't have chocolate in it.
I just get the feeling that Gwyneth has no concept of reality. For too long she has lived in a world where price doesn't matter and everyone says yes to her and so she has become convinced that is how life really is. I don't think she goes grocery shopping and I bet if you put her on The Price Is Right or asked her to name the price of 20 items from a grocery store she wouldn't come close. At the same time though, she is convinced that she can be Oprah or Rachel Ray and that we all want to be a Gwyneth follower. I don't.
