The practically perfect Gwyneth Paltrow has done yet another completely amazing thing– earned her first gold record. The news broke last night that the actress’ cover of Cee-Lo’s “Forget You” from her guest-appearance on Glee has sold over 535,000 copies. Must have been her surprise performance at Sunday’s Grammy’s with Cee-Lo that really pushed it over the top.
Gwyneth’s last movie, Country Strong, only reached the number six spot on the box office charts the weekend of it’s wide release, but featured Gwyneth singing throughout the whole thing. And it had Tim McGraw in it.
What am I getting at? Gwyneth is an okay singer, but she didn’t produce a real gold record. She covered one of the most popular songs of the summer on one of the most popular shows on television. Pardon my language, but no fucking shit she has a gold record.
