    If he had any credibility left at all, it’s gone.

  2. V4Real says:

    Oh no, does this mean that we are going to have special appearances by The Goop. She does consider herself a singer. I think she might want to be one of the special guest mentors that they bring in.

  3. Huh says:

    How lowrent and gauche! Someone get her goopiness some smelling salts!

  4. Macey says:

    Has anyone from the voice ever had anything come of it, like a popular song or single?? I dont watch the show but I dont recall hearing about anyone coming from that show. I really hope they dont put Goop on there for hits, watching her sing is kind of awkward. I dont get why they’re trying to push her singing when its embarrassing to watch.

      Jermain Paul, season 2 winner who is from my city in NY said it’s all about the politics. He said he has a record deal but there is so much going on behind the scene that it is depressing. However before he won he was featured on an Alicia Keys’ song and he actually has talent.

      • Macey says:

        I believe it. heard that so many times. not just with this show but with anyone trying to make it. Not sure if all true but there must be something to it or we wouldnt be only hearing stuff from the same 5-10 lame poptarts. There’s a reason very few talented people get media play.

    • EarlGreyer says:

      I think the Danielle Bradbery is pretty successful in country music I believe – she was Blake’s mentee

    • lucy2 says:

      I watched a couple of seasons, but I don’t think they’ve had anyone become a breakthrough, mainstream success like Idol did. I did like Vicki from the first season and bought a few of her albums, so I can see how it provides great exposure, but it hasn’t made any huge stars yet.

      God I hope we don’t have to hear Goop sing. She hits notes fine but there’s a weird flat tone to her voice that in no way makes me want to listen to her. Plus she’s obnoxious.

    But the best link is at the bottom of your page: the Christopher Walken dancing megamix on Buzzfeed is brilliant!! God, I love him.

  6. Ginger says:

    I love Coldplay and I think Chris Martin is a gifted musician. However, his singing voice is not that strong. I’m not saying he’s as bad as Paula Abdul (I could never understand how she ended up on Idol. She should be judging dance competitions NOT music) this sounds like a ploy for ratings.

  7. Hubbahun says:

    A very wicked part of me wants one of the contestants to sing ‘Happy’ and for Chris to say ‘That was brilliant. I mean, I’ve heard some covers of that which were absolute shite…’

    Please Baby Jeebers make this happen :P

  8. I have an aunt whose ex husband STILL owes her back child support—and the ‘child’ in question is nearly THIRTY years old.

    My sperm donor told my mom that if she made him go to court to pay child support (after asking him for $100 dollars a month for TWO kids), then we’d never have a father-daughter relationship.

    Sigh. I would think that some dudes would figure that a condom is cheaper.

  9. Tatjana says:

    I love Coldplay, how very cool of me. And I don’t understand how can people not like Chirs – he comes off so humble and self-deprecating in interviews.
    And I don’t mind this.
    Coldplay never pretended they were too cool or too alternative to be mainstream.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Glad Justified came back stronger last night, they definitely hit a rough patch for an episode or two. I heard they had to scramble a bit because of Jean-Baptiste, but I figured they’re a talented bunch and they’d work it all out.

    I like a lot of Coldplay’s music too, but I’m surprised to see CM doing this.

  11. bettyrose says:

    I judged Woody Allen by his work long before I knew anything of his actions, and I found his work patronizing toward women, as though he sees them as fascinating oddities to be endlessly analyzed. I dislike his work – with some exceptions – on its own merits.

    • Kiddo says:

      I find his female characters in films frequently falling into the same pattern: as shrews, materialistic, rageful, flighty and/or indecisive, and generally deeply flawed beyond the norm etc., with the exception of the younger ones who are seen as salvation. The recurring film themes are tiresome, sex and death, death and sex, aside from how I view him as an individual outside of his work. I enjoyed the whimsy of the Paris film, mostly due to the effortless charm of Owen Wilson and the magical return in history/nostalgia, but it failed in that it relied on the redundant Allen device where Wilson, as the protagonist, eventually found redemption in the youthful street merchant. In addition, I find it incredibly irritating that characters always seem to assume Allen’s speaking patterns, with the stutters and pacing.
      Some of his films are better than others, and the old ones had beautiful NYC cinematography, but I’m not compelled to run out and see them. Certainly less so when considering who the artist is.

  12. Evelyn says:

    Chris Martin has become a lame stereotype.

  13. Miffy says:

    The GoFugYourself write up of Lindsay Lohan’s show is actually hilarious. I love the Fug girls.

  14. Kimberly says:

    Some ppl. here are being a bit harsh on Chris :(

    He seems really sweet and humble compared to his annoying wife ughhh!!!

    I don’t watch The Voice or most reality shows/ competitions for that matter, but I wish Chris good luck.

  15. Carlinha says:

    Brooklyn Decker and Taylor Kitsch actually live in the same place: Austin, TX. I guess that’s how they ended up in the same flight to LA. I wonder how Any Roddick feels about this, though.

  16. bobbisue says:

    I guarantee Goop and Chris talk at length about their next career moves. Everything is calculated. He is an active participant in the “brand” that IS these two. She gave him the green light to do this. It’s like Keith Urban. A play to be relevant and reinvent oneself in a merciless business. I LOVED Coldplay and saw them live a bunch but unless you’re the Rolling Stones, eventually saturation and time inevitably change the course of interest. He’s gotta do something while they’re in LA…being idle gets old.

  17. jj says:

    I honestly don’t know what she likes about him. Just alone his music in the house would drive me nuts. Maybe that’s what the beach access was for. Everytime he grabs his guitar and starts to sing she will go for a swim.

  18. mzizkrizten says:

    Gwyneth actually has a pretty melodic voice.

  19. Evi says:

    Chris Martin as a mentor for The Voice?
    The man can’t sing or perform without looking like a frog in a blender on stage.

  20. JenniferJustice says:

    He may not have a stellar singing voice, but he is unique and a good musician – even if his instrument is his voice within his band. However, if this paves the way for Goop to get involved in The Voice, I will have to boycott the show.

  21. Ally8 says:

    Great, someone’s finally going to teach Chris Martin how to sing in something other than a monotone whine best suited to retail musac!

    Oh wait, he’s the mentor?
