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.
