Gwyneth Paltrow Will Destroy You, Vanity Fair

shutterstock_122722468Want to get your A, B, or C-list client featured in Vanity Fair? According to the gossip blogs (which we would never, ever read), you might have to go through Gwyneth Paltrow first. It seems Mrs. Coldplay is pretty upset about a “take-down piece” rumored to appear in the magazine that will reveal some sort of personal blah, blah, whatever.

We’re more interested in Radar Online‘s claims that the actress has embarked on a mission to destroy the magazine’s reputation as the kind of thing that people with too much free time on their hands flip through while scheduling tours of their mansions.

(Just kidding, Graydon CarterBored to Death was a great show.)

She supposedly sent mass emails to her celebrity friends telling them to boycott the VF and convinced George Clooney to cancel his scheduled appearance on its cover. The campaign may have worked, because the story didn’t run in this month’s issue—but one of those reps that always leads us to ask “are these real people?” told Radar that:

“Too many resources have been plowed into it and too many bridges have been brined [burned?] for it to be killed”

We’d ask who does media relations for Paltrow, because there has to be a better way to combat bad publicity.
