Madonna went out of her way to snub Gwyneth Paltrow at the Met Gala

Ha! I love how celebrities are totally shading Gwyneth Paltrow these days. If you missed my earlier post on Chloe Sevigny’s world-class shade on Goop, go here. Chloe was asked for her thoughts on Gwyneth’s petulant hissy fit about how “un-fun” the Met Gala was this year. And now Us Weekly’s print edition has an excellent story about WHY Gwyneth had such an awful time this year. It involves Madonna! Madonna and Gwyneth used to be friends until they had a falling out at some point a few years ago. Now they barely speak to each other, and Madonna goes out of her way to be a bitch to Goop.

The Material Girl is a Mean Girl! An insider tells Hot Stuff that Madonna went out of her way to make ex-friend Gwyneth Paltrow miserable at the May 6 Met Gala in NYC. Madonna gave Gwyneth the cold shoulder, then buddied up to tablemate – and current Paltrow pal – Beyonce.

“She chatted with Beyonce for most of the evening and didn’t even glance at Gwyneth,” says the source. “Everyone talked about it.”

The feud stems back to 2009, when Paltrow got fed up with the rude treatment from her onetime BFF.

“Madonna would sh-t on her, over and over,” says a Paltrow source. Years after Gwyneth dropped her, Madge is still hurt by the snub, says another insider: “She fels Gwyneth abandoned her. Now Madonna will do anything to make her suffer.”

And apparently she did. Days after the fashion bash, Paltrow told interviewers she would never attend again.

“It was so un-fun, I did not enjoy it at all.”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

I don’t believe that Gwyneth dropped Madonna because Madonna “would sh-t on her over and over.” I mean, I believe Madonna can be an awful person and she always has to be “top dog” in her relationships, but who believes that Gwyneth isn’t perfectly capable of being just as nasty, judgmental and bitchy right back? No, I think they had a falling out over several things, especially Tracy Anderson and that whole situation. Gwyneth pretty much “stole” Tracy from Madonna and that’s the biggest untold gossip story.

But yeah, how funny is it to imagine Madonna spending all of her time with Gwyneth’s new BFF Beyonce? Goop must have been so peeved.

Hilariously, Gwyneth’s Goop-letter this week is her behind-the-scenes of the Met Gala and how she chose that awful pink Valentino, etc. You can read it here.

    WTF is Madonna wearing? Jesus.

  2. Ron says:

    I doubt Madonna went out of her way, she just saw the opportunity and went with it. She would have more in common with Beyoncé anyway. They could have an entire week long conversation about their hatred of pants….

  3. Sirsnarksalot says:

    Actually I think GOOP said Madonna stole Tracey from her. Then later Madonna dropped Tracey when scandal about her business dealings reared up. I wish one of these harridans would spill the beans over their (GOOP and Madonna’s) falling out. I bet it’s juicy and I can’t believe Madge hasn’t said anything yet. Maybe she was waiting for the tide to turn against the mighty GOOP…

  4. karmasabiatch! says:

    Love her or hate her, Goop has 1,000 x’s more class than Madonna. The faux British “accent”, if that is what one calls whatever comes out of Madge’s mouth, is SO affected and tacky. Drives me batty.

    Madonna has been a b*tch for the entirety of her long career, why would she stop now? I totally believe this.

  5. Truthful says:

    Madonna 10
    Droopy Goopy 0


  6. Serenity now says:

    I didn’t read the headline closely- I actually thought it said “Madonna went out of her way to STAB Gwyneth”

  7. Talie says:

    It’s interesting that for all the talk that Gwyneth is so loved and always the popular girl in the room, the Met Gala seemed to really shoot down that theory.

    • V4Real says:

      Haha the popular girl became the outcast. It’s like when Blohan turned the tables on “McAdams in Mean Girls.”

      Maybe Gywn is not only hated by the public but other celebs as well. It also seems as if Bey didn’t have her back by telling Madonna to play nice.

      • Miffy says:

        To be fair even Beyonce doesn’t have the kind of clout to tell Madonna to shove it. Only Elton John holds that title.

        Besides I always got the vibe that GP is betting more out of her friendship with Bey and Jay Z than they are out of her. You never hear Jay talking about how he was hanging out with his best bud Gwynny but she just can’t help herself. It’s all a big networking game, ‘friendship’ is just a business term it seems.

      • bluhare says:

        Miffy, I’m with you. If Beyoncé is Gwyneth’s BFF, why did she spend all evening talking to Madonna and ignoring Gwyneth? I wouldn’t do that to my best friend.

  8. Vickyb says:

    Just the headline of this made me smile. Madonna forever! Gwyneth is just… meeeeeeh!

    And, for what it’s worth, I really thought that Madonna was one of the only ones that nailed it at the Met Ball. At least what’s she wearing is punk, she takes risks and she beats her own drum. Far better than Gwyneth ‘it’s so punk to not be punk. Punk is for peasants’ Paltrow.

    Madonna gets for the way she is – opinionated, demanding, controlling, but at least she has *always* owned it. Unlike Paltrow, who I think is probably all those things and more, who hides her bitch behind sugary gloss. I know who I have more respect for.

  9. Jayna says:

    Gwyneth attended Madonna’s MDNA tour last year in the UK, as did Stella McCartney and others in their circle. Madonna had a party at her Mayfair townhome afterwards and I would assume Gwyneth was invited. So as of last year they were on friendly enough terms, so I wouldn’t believe she snubbed her if not for that comment Gwyneth made in the interview dissing those who dressed punk at the gala, which would be a direct diss at Madonna. So maybe back on bad terms again.

  10. janie says:

    First time i’ve seen Madonna in the news in a long time…. Just sayin’

  11. c'est la vie says:

    Gywneth’s pink dress is still all shades of horrible.

    Say what you want about Madonna, she stuck to the theme of the evening (I thought well) and would never be caught dead wearing that dress.

  12. Thiajoka says:

    I think they deserve each other.

  13. Dinah says:

    FFS. Two bigger a-holes I’ve never seen.

  14. BooBooLaRue says:

    At this point, i loathe all of them: Goop, “Material Granny”, Tracy “Man”derson, and BEY-once…put them out on an ice floe and let them have at it.

  15. ncboudicca says:

    In that first photo, Madge has some hard implants in the right side of her face, or something else going on…her face is stretched tighter than a gnat’s ass over a rain barrel. I wish she’d stop with the plastic surgery.

  16. NerdMomma says:

    Blech. They’re both so insufferable, I really do wish they’d become the best of friends again. They could have a judgy talk show together and talk in their faux British accents together and tell us all how to mother our children and whatnot. It would be excellent comedy.

  17. Ann says:

    I don’t know why the media keeps pushing the cat fight agenda. Friendships sometimes have an expiration date. No biggie.

  18. Dawn says:

    Oh who cares! The Mets Gala was hardly AList anyway.

  19. Barrett says:

    I love Madonna and the gloves to hide her granny veiny hands. She is not fooling anyone!

  20. Gossip Garl says:

    Do ya’ll think Madge knew GOOP would be wearing PINK @the MET?I BET SHE DID>>MADGE RULEZ.

  21. AB says:

    God, I think I like Madonna’s outfit more than Goop’s.

  22. Kate says:

    I thought Stella McCartney was part of the “falling out.” I may be mixing my “celebrities dumping their buddies” stories, but a number of years ago I thought Stella got into it with Madonna because Madonna was either hunting or wearing fur/pelts or both (in her Guy Ritchie-I’m-so-British stage). I thought Gwyneth sided with Stella.

  23. bowers says:

    Celebs: they’re just like high school.

  24. RHONYC says:

    i find this hilarious only because THREE years before Beyoncé became, well BEYON-SAAAAY, i´ll never forget Destiny´s Child 1st Grammys where they won and during their performance the camera shot to Madonna (who was wearing her ´Mrs. Richie´ shirt) was looking down a her nails like ´how boring, i need a manicure´ delivering massive shade. :-(

    she´s a f*cking trip i tell ya. :roll:

  25. anneesezz says:

    Maybe Madonna doesn’t get to be pretend British anymore since divorcing Guy Ritchie so she is being shunned by Gwyneth, Queen of the Anglophiles.

  26. Lisa says:

    If I had to choose who to be stuck on a desert island with, I’d choose neither, but Team Madonna in this case.

  27. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I can’t believe Madonna – who seemed so confident in the eighties – turned into this.

  28. lisa says:

    all of these people are horrible in a different way, i cant pick a team

    once tracey said that she used to have a very famous client who was always late or expected her to drop her other clients without notice and act unprofessionally and so she had to drop them. i always assumed she was talking about madge.

  29. Jm says:

    I remember after Gwynnie won her Oscar. She hosted SNL and made fun of Sharon Stone and her “creepy husband”. Sharon didn’t like it and said that Goop was living in “rarified air” at the moment but, when she came down to earth like the rest of us, she wouldn’t be so smug.

    Could it be finally, at long last, happening? Fingers crossed!

  30. moon says:

    What is this, high school for 50 year olds?

    This, and the Real Housewives are making me realise we will never evolve beyond high school drama.

    • cynicalsmirk says:

      I’d go out of my way to snub them both, anywhere, anytime….there can’t possibly be 2 more entitled, pretentious snots in the world, can there? Since I’m unlikely to actually ever run into either one, I’ll snub them the only way I can. By not spending a dime on a magazine, book, cleanse, cd etc. that they produce or have any association with. The same goes for the Kardashians.

  31. poppy says:

    now goop’s “too old to be punk” comment makes sense to me.
    i think goopster might be lost in her own PR frenzy. to post that whole “pink ball gown = punk” article on goop moments after she swore she didn’t dress punk; i bet her stylist isn’t pleased she completely contradicted her and their arrangement just to shade madonna.
    goop is so passive-aggressive. like saying sandra bullock is old, the whole winona drama, drunk girls are ridiculous… goop’s always ragging on someone despite her claims to being firmly attached to the bosom of sisterhood. i hope they make that ryan murphy/girl group film with goop, beyonce, cameron, and reese since she previously dissed reese, implying she only does rom-coms for $$$$ and that rom-coms suck.
    she’ll put out a thinly veiled goop letter re: fake southern charm, power trippers and dui?

  32. Dedrie says:

    Gwyneth to crowd, “Ahem, for your own health and safety; avoid the Scot-Nazi Punk butter-face grannie…’

  33. Emily says:

    Madonna mattered hugely, and Madonna still matters. Goopy never mattered, nor will she ever. Madonna wouldn’t put up with being unhappy in marriage, and got herself a hot boy toy she keeps in his place. Goopy is with some guy she pretends is a genius artiste who can do no wrong, and likes to pretend she can give us peons marriage advice.

    When it comes down to it: Madonna’s the real deal, obnoxious as she often is. Goop is a poseur, and never has been anything but. That is why people hate Goop, not for her lifestyle.

    Btw: Madonna was always a slightly edgy party girl with way more male friends than female friends. All this one-upsmanship cool kid stuff is really not her.

  34. KellyinSeattle says:

    “Everyone was talking about it”…they really do act like junior highers. Waiting to see what Madge does as she gets older; Social Security benefits take effect, kids grow up, she has grandkids…this whole show has been around forever but is still full-steam ahead.

  35. MAC says:

    This is not news. As soon as GOOP had that quote out about the Met. it was clear she did not get the attention she wanted/deserved. Madonna got the press for sticking with the theme. GOOP is a child.

  36. jamee draper says:

    I am sorry but I cannot help but LOVE Madonna.I grew up listening to her music and every pop singer today is ripping her off or trying to be her.But there’s only one Madge Beyotches.Yes she is crazy and catty and rude,but she is a DIVA.She is supposed to wear crazy outfits and dress up with her ass out at galas.And BTW,just because she is 50- something doesn’t mean she should act like an old lady.50 year old men like George Clooney are enjoying themselves and partying and dating people half their age,why can’t she.She embraced the gay community 30 years ago when no one would or wanted to.She is living her life and raising her kids alone and not hurting anybody.Good for her she is awesome.So what if she dropped Goop,who can stand her anyway?

  37. skuddles says:

    Yes Madge, this is what you’ve been reduced to – leaking stories about how you “snubbed” GOOP at some gala in the hopes of attracting some PR.

    They’re both a couple of pretentious twats, I can’t imagine why they’re not besties anymore.

  38. Amelia says:

    No one dislikes Goopy more than I, but Madonna is wretched. From her fake British accent, to her cougar dating, to her disastrous fashion sense, she is revolting.

    And to the both of them…Fifth Grade called…they want their behavior back.

    • Kath says:

      Yep. I’m not Goop’s fan by a long shot, but Madonna is just repulsive. Does she have ANY remaining friends/family, or has she fallen out with all of them by now?

    • VioletCrumble says:

      Yes, Amelia. As a teacher in a primary (elementary) school, I’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve needed to mediate Years 5 and 6 girls, and younger, in their bitchy squabbles. These two harpies must have written the text book on bitches and banshees and how to tip the bucket…

  39. Str8Shooter says:

    I saw Madonna in concert back in ’08 and I have to say, she was all gristle and granny-looking. And when she came out to ‘sing’ Borderline (Lord knows she can not hit those high notes any more) she had on this BabyJane outfit complete with pancake makeup. I had nightmares for weeks!

    She is now, and always has been, a total See Ya Next Tuesday.

    That being said, who the Hell could stand the unrelenting pretense that is Goop?

  40. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Clearly they’re no longer friends bc Madonna says “pass-ta” in her fake British accent instead of “pah-sta” & that assault on Gwyneth’s eardrums gives her the vapors.

  41. Gin Brosell says:

    who cares what material trash thinks, says or does? she got where she is by being crude & disgusting. all the money in the world can’t but her class, & Gwyneth will always have it & madonna never will

    • Nina W says:

      Lol, sorry but neither lady shows much class here. Not that anyone cares about nobodies and their social pretensions anymore but Gwynnie doesn’t have anything to get all high and mighty about in her family any more than Madge does.

  42. Gin Brosell says:

    Who cares what material trash thinks, says or does? She got where she is by being crude & disgusting. All the money in the world can’t but her class, & Gwyneth will always have it whereas madonna never will.

  43. Hrrw says:

    Many friendships just fizzle out eventually.

  44. Blenheim says:

    Madonna’s mouth turns downwards even when she’s smiling.

  45. Blue Angel says:

    You’re all wrong. Madonna flipped out when Gwyneth signed up to portray Marlene Dietrich in a biography. That’s Madonna’s idol for decades. Madonna wanted the role. Check Gwyneth’s timeline with the Dietrich project. It coincides with the tiff.
