"She walks into a room and there's this ray of light, this energy," says actor Matthew Morrison of his sometime Glee costar and September Elle cover girl Gwyneth Paltrow.
She addresses questions in the magazine including: Is she going to make an album? And, what's up with her husband, Coldplay's Chris Martin? Some answers:
On creating a solo album: "Beyoncé and Jay—they think that I should just go do it by myself. That I should go…in a studio and see what happens. And if it's good, do it. And if it's not, don't. So that's probably what I'll do."
On choosing not to go to her husband for advice on music: "[He's] a musical genius. It's like living with Picasso, and being like, 'Should I make a little something-something?'"
On keeping her marriage out of the spotlight: "He makes music for his fans, and he doesn't want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they're getting into his music. I get it."
This reminds me of when my dear friends Quincy Jones and the late, great, Shirley Bassey...oh, she's not dead? Wow, I could have sworn...okay, well, anyway, it reminds me of when we were all at Ted Koppel's Arbor Day pool party when a handsome, young devil got himself up on stahhhge and did a stunning rendition of the classic 2 Live Crew requiem Pop That Coochie. Whether it was the performance or the ridiculous amount of ecstasy we had taken, we were all incredibly moved. Personally, I was moved to front of a train being run by a young M. Night Shyamalan. Talk about a twist ending, if you know what I mean! Anyway, Quincy, not-dead-Shirley and I told that young man that he would one day be a musical superstar as famous as Perry Como. And today, do you know who that young man is? The Assistant Manager of the Men's Big & Tall on Rt. 19 in Tacoma, Washington. Moral of the story: say no to drugs and yes to the sexual advances of wealthy, white women. Tah tah, darlings!
