Five Reasons Gwyneth Never Should've Gotten a Record Deal

Categories: WTF
Okay, so we didn't write this one, but it's hilarious. And true. The Atlantic posted five reasons actress Gwyneth Paltrow has no business releasing an album--she announced that she finalized the deal with Atlantic Records yesterday and is on her way to become a bona-fide music . . . er, personality. Read it here and judge her musical ability yourself--after the jump.

Meh. 85% of all recordings, books, computer programs, video games, movies, TV shows, etc. are crap. People will still buy/watch them, and people will buy her music. That's reason enough for Atlantic to give her a contract. I'd actually be more surprised if she didn't get a recording deal.

Yah, it sucked. Most to all of the acts that are in the front of the music industry today are manufactured (as you point out). It's not about making music. Like when Michael Jackson asked McCartney(?) to do a collaboration. Mccartney asked Michael why? The reply "to make hits". Not music, not art, but hits. who cares how good it might or might not be, the machine can sell it and people are undiscriminating (at best, more like dumb) enough to buy it.
