Gwyneth Paltrow: A record by myself feels a little scary!

Gwyneth Paltrow and Ellen DeGeneres

Let it be known that I am a huge fan of Gwyneth Paltrow (unfortunately I know a bunch of people who have absolutely no love for her), and I’ve really liked her guest appearances on Glee as substitute teacher Holly Holiday (and some of her musical performances have actually been quite decent) but I still don’t really see the need for her to record an entire album, which would probably send some GOOP haters completely over the edge. Rumors were flying a few weeks ago that she actually signed a record deal yet when she recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres this past Friday, she revealed it’s still not a done deal yet. Find out why she’s hesitating and what kind of album Gwyneth might make below …

The multi-talented Gwyneth Paltrow made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, April 22nd. Ellen chatted with Gwyneth about the possibility of her recording an album.

Ellen: The rumor is you have a record deal. Are you going to do an album?

Gwyneth: Well, I haven’t signed anything but I’m thinking about it. I kind of have to get my head around the concept of it and how I would want to do it. Do it in a
right way. It’s hard to think of switching because all the signing I’ve been doing has been coming out of Country Strong or Glee. So I think, how would I do that? Just a record by myself feels a little scary to me. I would like to in theory but we’ll see.

Ellen: Since you’re doing different kinds of music on Glee than you did Country Strong. First you did the Country Music Awards, which you were amazing on then you did the Grammy’s. What kind of record would you put out?

Gwyneth: I like all kinds of music. I don’t think it would be a real poppy record.

Ellen: Not like a Britney Spears thing?

Gwyneth: Not totally. She’s cornered that market.
