Gwyneth Paltrow’s Glee appearance critiqued

Gwyneth Paltrow performed Cee Lo Green’s tune “F–– You” on Glee Tuesday and the soul singer had this to say about it: “I think she did awesome,” he told UsMagazine.com, adding, “I didn’t really realize how accomplished she was as a vocalist. She sounded great. She sounded better than me!” However, Dina Lohan isn’t quite as thrilled about Gwyneth’s appearance. She’s reported to be considering legal action because the episode poked fun at her daughter, Lindsay Lohan. In it, Paltrow’s character Holly Holliday teaches a Spanish class phrases such as: “Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?” and: “How many times has Lindsay Lohan been to rehab? Five.” Dina says, “Our lawyers are sending a letter to Glee” claiming that the show defamed Lindsay because she is working on her recovery. A spokesperson for Lindsay added: “Lindsay has an issue that millions of people around the world are dealing with, yet Glee is treating addiction as a laughing matter.” Gwyneth also performed during the 44th Annual CMA Awards last week to promote her new movie, Country Strong, in which she plays a fallen country star, opposite Tim McGraw. The film opens next month. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    Ummm, but Lohan treats her issue like it’s a laughing matter too. 5 attempts to get clean and sober…I know it’s an ongoing fight to stay that way for the rest of her life, but really it didn’t seem like the effort was there. So to poke fun at it, who cares. Did they sue Family guy when Lindsay Lohan crab-walked backwards nude? Does former US prez George W sue…EVERYONE??? Take it with a grain of salt. She’s in the spotlight and this goes with the territory. It’s not even really bad. If anything someone George W Bush should be suing everyone on earth, they’ve said wayyyyyyy worse on TV and news and office talk etc…Lohan and her reps should suck it up. Move on and stop trying to milk money out of people to buy more drugs.

    And as for Paltrow, that’s funny that nobody knew she had talent as a singer. I guess that proves the movie Duets was an extreme flop and nobody listens to easy listening favourites radio stations where the title song from the movie plays often lol.

    Awww I remember Duets! “I love it when we’re cruisin’ together”! She’s a decent singer…

    That’s a really catch tune in the video! I didn’t know she could sing like that.

    There is way too much sexual tension between the adults and students on this show… it’s very disturbing
