Gwyneth Paltrow wants husband Chris Martin to leave Coldplay


Oh, to be Dame Gwyneth Paltrow. To spend your life with your nose stuck up in the air, snotting at anything, everything you find unworthy. To sanctimoniously dish out lifestyle advice to those poor, unfortunate, dumb, unattractive people who so desperately need your Goop. To pitch hissy fits when someone younger and hotter gets a little bit more attention. To donate your precious time to a cause so that the cause will receive more attention, and then piss all over the media providing coverage by calling them “roaches”. Ah, Gwyneth.

According to Betty Confidential, Gwyneth’s latest snotfest is about her husband’s band, Coldplay. It seems Gwyneth is trying to convince Chris that he needs to start a solo career, and consider leaving Coldplay for good. Chris’s response? It was basically “Screw you and the goopy horse you rode in on.”

Back in 2004 newlywed Gwyneth Paltrow was asked whether she would consider singing with her new husband Chris Martin’s band, Coldplay. The Oscar winner said no, explaining, “People ask if I will sing with the band or do a duet, but always in front of my mind is the Yoko effect. I don’t want to be known as the girl who split up Coldplay.”

My, how times have changed. Sources tell me the GOOP editor, actress and mother of two is following in the footsteps of the woman blamed for breaking up the Beatles and is trying to convince Chris to say goodbye to Coldplay and consider writing music of his own.

A pal of the Iron Man star says, “Gwyneth has outright told Chris that he should consider going solo. She is busy doing all of her projects and she wants him to diversify as well. She doesn’t have a problem with Coldplay, but she wants Chris to think about trying a solo album just to see if he likes it.”

The conversation between the couple, who have been battling breakup rumors lately, did not go well.

“When Gwyneth mentioned it, Chris was furious. He loves the band and he has no desire to change things right now. Chris basically ignored her and walked away.”

There have been many, many rumors about relationship problems between Gwyneth and Chris for years, so is this just another rumor? I’ll believe Gwyneth capable of any kind of snotty idea, and since her new thing is giving “lifestyle advice” to peasants, maybe Gwyneth has decided to bring her work home with her. But I have another theory – doesn’t Chris Martin think that Coldplay is like the heir to the Beatles? Perhaps he and Gwyneth are both taking a page out of the Beatles handbook, and putting this story out there so people will draw their own John Lennon-Yoko Ono comparisons. I have to say, I’m definitely on Team Yoko if that’s the case.

    i find her incredibly annoying , and this just confirms why .

  2. Nev says:

    I so agree with you Kimberly. Paltrow is so annoying. I can’t help but wonder how much she is influencing Martin with her snobby ways.

  3. TinaWithPom says:

    In the photos, it looks like Fishsticks is walking towards and getting into her car, a BMW… SUV!!!

    Yeah, totally the kind of car that a holistic healing, aromatherapy, yoga lifestyle-promoting, environmentally conscious, organic food-procuring, vegan-vegetarian neo-hippie would drive.

    What a hypocrite.

  4. Lee says:

    Meh. Coldplay is so over-hyped and over-rated. Chris Martin should know he could never duplicate the horse-shoe-up-the-ass undeserved fame Coldplay received. So Gwynnie is wasting her breath.

  5. Bill Hicks is God says:

    “She doesn’t have a problem with Coldplay…” She shouldn’t, because if it weren’t for the fact Martin was in a famous band she wouldn’t have looked twice at his ass to begin with. Oh yeah, and because Madonna told her a few years ago to “get with an Englishman” y’know, cuz dick cheese and a 45-degree overbite was all the rage then, I guess.

  6. n says:

    she seems greedy.
    nothing she does is without some self-serving purpose.

    still can’t figure out how her mother– a real actress — raised such a self-absorbed monster.

  7. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Funny, ‘n’ because Blythe Danner looks like an elitist snot to me. What’s she been in except an episode of M*A*S*H? Oh, and assorted garbage like Meet the Fokkers?

  8. n says:

    Bill — maybe so — she was in Will & Grace and very funny there.

  9. Embee says:

    If this is true (and that’s a big “if”) I don’t see the problem with her encouraging him to try something new, when she’s not telling him to quit his band.

    I understand that GP rubs people the wrong way but this doesn’t seem eggregious to me. My guy will weigh in on my career because he cares, and I do the same for him. We’re not ordering one another around; we’re providing support and perspective from a loving place.

  10. the original kate says:

    bill – blythe danner is a broadway actress more than a movie star. as for gwynnie she is a goopy mess.

  11. javelin says:

    Gwyneth is the next Nancy Grace, y’all. In one ear, out the other… you gotta love her.

  12. Kevin says:

    If Goopy wants him to try something new,,he should get in line and be one of the next ones to pork one of the Kardashian sisters. You know, try a chick with some meat on her bones. As far as them being on the same level as the Beatles,,,Ho you are delusional. Cold Play would not even be missed. I’m of the opinion that if there were never any Beatles, then the Bee-Gees would have taken all that success in their stead.

  13. RobN says:

    If he leaves Coldplay, can he continue stealing the work of other artists, or is that solely a Coldplay thing?

  14. Kevin says:

    OOOOHHHH SNAP!!!! Good shot RobN!!! You had a couple good jabs too Mr. Hicks,,,,Dick cheese and buck teeth ,,,bwahahahah,props!

  15. DD says:

    Bill–funny comments. Loves it.

  16. Marie says:

    I don’t like Coldplay and she’s just annoying!!

  17. mockingbird says:

    Instead of leaving Coldplay, Martin ought to turn it around and leave her.

  18. GatsbyGal says:

    Does Goopy know Coldplay is the next U2, and her hubby is the next Bono? You don’t mess with that.

    I’m not really much of a Chris Martin fan (though I do loves me some Coldplay), but if I have to pick between him and the Goop, you better believe I’m siding with him.

  19. LaLa says:

    “Blythe Danner looks like an elitist snot to me.”

    Thank you Bill. The apple does not fall that far from the tree. Her goop-anal-ity had to come from somewhere.

  20. Mairead says:

    Please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true please let this be true

    Whatever delusions Coldplay have about being the next U2 (HA!!! they friggin’ wish) – Goopy sure as f** ain’t the next Ali Hewson!

  21. Laura says:

    I die a little when Kaiser writes about the Goop. And I mean “die” in a good way. The first paragraph of this story was pure heaven.

  22. british bitch says:

    Coldplay. A Crown of Thorns to the ears. Gwyneth, please go home, we don´t like you.

  23. carrie says:

    Yeah GWYNETH! Break them up! I AM SO SICK of listening to them on the radio, and Mtv. Sorry, guys, I loved Yellow, but everything after that was “rinse, repeat and repeat.” Their songs all sound the same and enough with the faux-enlightenment bs. Beatles and U2 they aint.

  24. Tiffany says:

    If Paltrow had any sense she would take a lesson from the other wives/girlfriends of the Coldplay band…set back, be quiet and let the checks roll in. Gwyneth has to know her star is falling in the movie and media business, if she wants to continue to be snooty, someone’s going to have to pay for it. Didn’t Martin say something along the lines that he will leave Coldplay for a solo career when hell freezes over. That I believe, but I don’t think that he would say that about his wife/the mother of his children. HMMMMM!!!!

  25. Mia says:

    I have never heard of the website this originated from and it seems to be the only source… a bit fishy.

  26. lizzy says:

    Oh it’s so hard to be a rock star wife!

  27. captain america says:

    She wants to spend more time together DOING NOTHING, folks.

  28. birdgherl says:

    I am no Coldplay expert but I am pretty sure their best work was BG (before Gwyneth). I saw Chris Martin on 60 minutes and he seemed perfectly sweet and adorable so WTF is he doing with her??

  29. docalion says:

    This is obviously a rumor.

  30. jmflynny says:


    She’s leaving the salon?

    WTH did she have done and how much did she pay for it?

    Had the caption said she was heading into the salon, that I might understand.

  31. Magsy says:

    That’s the first smart idea she’s had. Disband that whiney ass band.

  32. getoveryourselfalready says:

    I love Chris and Gwynnie AND Coldplay. They choose to keep their relationship private and that’s a good thing.

    Who in the hell is this nasty Betty skank, anyway? She should be so lucky to have half the adorable class factor those two have in their pinky nails.
