Gwyneth Paltrow

Stars … they’re just like us! Except for the fact that she lives in an Atlantean castle, sleeps in a zero-gravity purified oxygen-infused sleep chamber, and owns a Space Shuttle, Gwyneth Paltrow is a pretty down-to-earth lady. Proof? How about her Summer Jams playlist, published today on Life + Times. Gwyn shared her 13-track mix with the masses, and her music choices are more or less exactly like yours. A little Grimes, a little Pinback, etc. To be fair, she’s not much of a music critic — about Beach House, she says, “I’m into this band and its mellow dreamy beach music, thus their name”; re: Frank Ocean, she writes, “I think this album might be a masterpiece.” (Um, so maybe she is a music critic?) But this summer, she’s basically rocking a Stereogum-approved set of tunes — she’s just doing it on an iPhone 7. Check out her full playlist below and let us know what else she should be listening to.

  • Kendrick Lamar (Feat. Dr. Dre) – “The Recipe”
  • Pinback – “Loro”
  • Grimes – “Genesis”
  • Hot Chip – “Motion Sickness”
  • Juicy J – “Who Da Neighbors”
  • Frank Ocean – “Thinkin About You”
  • Chief Keef feat. Lil Reese – “I Don’t Like”
  • Usher – “Climax”
  • Beach House – “Other People”
  • Deerhunter – “Helicopter”
  • French Montana (Feat. Rick Ross, Drake, & Lil Wayne) – “Pop That”
  • Neon Indian – “Halogen (I Could Be A Shadow)”
  • Wugazi – “Shame On Blue”

    hmm. i do not look kindly upon this collision of worlds. re-racking my own playlists now since they’re all clearly passe. THANKS GWYNETH. *scoff*

  3. “I’m into this band and its mellow dreamy beach music, thus their name”

    Am I wrong, or does that subordinate clause (“thus their name”) not make any sense? It looks like she read the word ‘thus’ and decided to throw it into sentences willy-nilly.

  4. …but she’s such a cow. You see the predicament this raises.

  5. Chief Keef, lol

  6. she should listen to john mayer. yes. that’s what i recommend for her.

  7. So wait – she’s not rocking Viva La Raindrops or whatever the name of that stinking pile of sugary diarrhea that her husband recently dropped is?

  8. I picture Madame Gwyneth watching a polo match with Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like” pounding on her iPod earbuds.

  9. This list should be nothing but Crazy Frog.

  10. apple probably picked this list – dat girl is fly as fux

    • I hope everyone knows you are talking about her child and not like… Apple Apple… because this does also strike me as some celebrity playlist shib.

  11. Haha the Juicy J selection is even funnier than Chief Keef. This white girl goes hard.

  12. I would recommend to Gwyneth, Death Grips. Just the thought of her shouting the lyrics for Bitch Please to Chris Martin is awesome.

  13. She’s so incredibly unlikable and pretentious that I am having trouble with the fact that she is claiming to listen/like to the same music as I. Why couldn’t she just put Coldplay on repeat?

    • When did she become either of those adjectives? I think you’re just saying words.

      Let’s all be real; it’s a sweet list, and she’s allowed to accrue cultural capital just like all of us by liking what’s “cool”.


  15. She couldn’t go mainstream with her music so now she is going indie. I bet new album by her to be released next year.
