Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow visited CNNMoney to share her Goopery with the world. And boy did she.
“I’m incredibly close to the common woman in that I’m a woman and I’m a mother and we all are in a physical body with beating hearts with compassion and love we are all seekers…we all want fulfillment, we all want to live our best lives. We want to be healthy and happy and squeeze the most we can out of life. I think that’s all women.”
Yes. #YesAllWomen. #EvenAllGoops.
Recently, she also addressed criticism at Goop’s luxury nature (buy your toddler $200 sweaters and steam your vagina like a silk blouse! It’s so worth it!) saying, silly little people, we are not luxury. We are ASPIRATIONAL.
“We have things on there that cost $40, you know we have things on there that cost $500 and I think sometimes that some of the criticism that Goop gets is because people haven’t actually gone to the site and looked around to see what we actually are.”
Aspirational brands are, by definition, not for you, you peasant. “An important characteristic of an aspirational product is that the part of its exposure audience that is at present economically unable to purchase it, thinks of itself as having a fair probability of at a certain point in the future being able to do so.” But you won’t be able to do so. Because you are
garbage common. But doesn’t it feel so nice to know that Gwyneth understands your plight?
Isn’t she the best?
