Gwyneth Paltrow's cavalcade of dumb rolled on today in the most unexpected way.
Given that Paltrow recently compared negative Internet comments to war trauma, we expect baffingly stupid things to pour out of her mouth daily, but she may have actually outdone herself with her latest comments.
Brace yourself: Gwyneth Paltrow thinks water has feelings and we shouldn't say mean things to it.
But of course she does. What more would you expect from the woman who coined the phrase "conscious uncoupling."
Check out this excerpt from the latest issue of Gwyneth's online newsletter (the unfortunately titled "Goop") and marvel at the fact that this woman is able to tie her own shoes:
"Negativity changes the structure of water...the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it."
Gwyneth goes on to cite studies performed by Japanese scientist Masuru Emoto as evidence of her claim.
We're sure you don't even need us to tell you this, but Emoto is a complete whack-job and his experiments have been discredited by thousands of other scientists.
So yes, this myth has been around for a while, it's demonstrably BS, and yet Gwyneth thought she'd present it to her ever-shrinking fan base as though it were scientific fact. Let's hope she keeps her opinions on vaccines and global warming to herself.

I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.

It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.
I definitely have to coax things out of him when we talk. You know, he's British, so it's a different lexicon totally. But you have to communicate. Otherwise there's no relationship.
- Permalink: A lack of communication.
We've gone through some terrible times where it's been really, really hard, but I've sort of come through those times with a much deeper understanding of myself. And we're still married. We worked through it. I think it's easier to get divorced. But I think the more you keep at it, the more you end up seeing the value in it. But man, sometimes it is not easy.

Sometimes it's hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren't all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what's going to happen.
- Permalink: Sometimes, it's hard...
I'm a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, "Where are you? You should be home by now." I never place demands on him.
