Gwyneth Kate Paltrow:
Born on 27th September 1972, the American is a global actress, author, and businesswoman, she is also the recipient of various awards like the Primetime Emmy Award, Golden Globe Awards, and many more! She was initially married to Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin in 2003, but they called it quits, with a finalized divorce in 2016, and 2018 she tied the knot with Brad Falchuk. She has two children that she shares with Martin. Other than the movie industry, Paltrow is known to dip her toes in other ventures like fashion, philanthropy, and a wellness brand!
Starting in September 2008, a wellness magazine by the name ‘Goop’ was started by Paltrow, which encouraged its readers to introspect themselves from the ‘within’. Since then the magazine expanded to its website, e-commerce of sorts, collaborating with fashion brands, a documentary on Netflix, and even a podcast! By extension Paltrow faced a lot of backlash after releasing several r products from her brand Goop, where fans took to their social media platforms saying that they were irresponsibly expensive and dangerously included elements that should not be in contact with our bodies in the first place, an example of this is the ‘vaginal steaming’, use of ‘Body Vibes’ stickers that was told to balance one’s chakras and was made using NASA-developed material. But recently Paltrow’s lifestyle brand released content that referred to men as ‘people with a prostate’, to which Piers Morgan, an English television broadcaster and personality called her out saying that, that these titles that she gave men are absolutely ’absurd’ and that ‘people who bear a prostate are called men and he can say this with confidence as he bears one.’
Morgan is a very influential personality that people have been a fan of for years, hence it was very ‘woke’ of him to comment on this unusual titling done by Goop, said by his fans. This controversy also did not sit well with most of the fans who have also become quite used to the antics of Goop, but otherwise, there is still no information or statement from Paltrow’s side of whether she was included in the profiling of the content or if she was aware of it or no. There has been no statement from her team, nor Goop, so now time will tell what will happen and whether this content will be deleted and apologized for.
Goop was recently seen collaborating with Poosh, another lifestyle brand started by Kourtney Kardashian, hence in some ways the criticism that the brand faces does not do anything to slow them down, if anything they are rising faster than any other wellness brand has ever done! What are your thoughts on this situation?
