GWYNETH PALTROW SAYS GOOP-CONDE NAST DEAL FELL APART WHEN COMPANY WANTED TO FACT-CHECK GOOP ARTICLES
Anna Wintour, editor in chief of Vogue and Condé Nast’s artistic director, was initially “excited” for Paltrow to bring “her point of view to the company.” However, the deal fell apart after Condé Nast insisted on fact-checking Goop magazine articles, among enforcing other rules.
The publishers did not want Goop magazine to use its platform “as part of their contextual commerce strategy.” Goop also wanted to sell its products in the magazine, but “Condé Nast insisted that they have a more ‘agnostic’ editorial approach.” Paltrow said she wanted readers to be able to buy products through the magazine.
“They’re a company that’s really in transition and do things in a very old-school way,” Paltrow told The New York Times Magazine. “But it was amazing to work with Anna [Wintour]. I love her. She’s a total idol of mine. We realized we could just do a better job of it ourselves in-house. I think for us it was really like we like to work where we are in an expansive space. Somewhere like Condé, understandably, there are a lot of rules.”
Paltrow said she didn’t understand why Condé Nast insisted on fact-checking.
Kelly Osbourne is opening up about her past struggles with addiction, following Demi Lovato’s hospitalization on Tuesday from an apparent drug overdose.
The 33-year-old TV personality appeared on the British talk show Loose Women on Wednesday, where she admitted that she knows “what it’s like” to have a relapse, and be in the public spotlight while trying to climb out of a dark place.
“I will never speak on behalf of Demi, because that wouldn’t be right,” Osbourne explained as the conversation came to focus on her friend’s recent relapse and subsequent medical emergency. “I can only share about what I’ve been through and what I know from myself, and that is relapse is one the hardest things we face as an open addict who has gone through the program and turned their life around.”
