After spending nearly a decade bemoaning the cultural degredation of the American continent, Gwyneth Paltrow has finally returned to Los Angeles, perhaps to mend her broken heart in the wake of her “conscious uncoupling” from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin (who has since moved on to this blogger’s girl crush, Jennifer Lawrence). America, unfortunately, has not been equally welcoming to Gwyneth Paltrow.
This weekend, the GOOP.com founder will host a fundraiser, dinner and reception with President Obama to raise money for the Democratic National Committee. The author and actress, who prides herself on being our generation’s Martha Stewart (though without the homemaking success or the felony arrest record), will probably hire out all aspects of the party planning process, including the invitations, which cost between $1,000 and $32,400 to obtain. And, according to Radar Online, at least one of her neighbors, controversial LA guerilla artist “SABO,” is already ruining her aesthetic.
This isn’t Gwyneth Paltrow’s year.
The GOOPster has been having it rough as of late with a “conscious uncoupling” from her husband, Chris Martin, and now a neighborhood coup. That’s right – Paltrow’s neighbors have taken to the streets, literally, and have hung photoshopped posters of the star posed in front of a drone with the caption “Obama Drone.”
The posters have been placed in the area around Paltrow’s home, though she’d have to descend her driveway to the world of the little people, and open her 9-foot black steel gate to see them (the gate, by the way, violates the local zoning ordinances, and led to a dustup with Paltrow’s neighbors). No word on whether the White House is fazed by the posters, though it’s hard to get time with them, I’m sure, given President Obama’s packed schedule of seven fundraisers this week alone.
