Much Ado About Gwyneth

That much-ballyhooed Gwyneth Paltrow takedown piece that Vanity Fair supposedly commissioned like, almost a year ago?

OK…more like, nine months ago.

Anyway, yeah…that – much ado about nothing.

The feature, Graydon Carter writes in the upcoming March issue of the magazine, “was just what had been assigned – a reasoned, reported essay on the hate/love-fest that encircles [the actress]. I thought it perfectly explained the whole phenomenon.

But it was a far cry from the almost mythical story that people were by now expecting.”

You don’t say, monsieur l’editor. Tell us more!

“[That’s why] I decided to sit on it for a time.”

Oh. Anticlimactic much? And…clever, clever.

Carter chucks up the craziness that surrounded the story, which I am still unclear will see the light of the day, on living and loving – and haterating – in the Age of the Net, for the write-up, he concludes, “had clearly just gotten away from us.”

And turned into heaps of layman-made publicity.

Update: Just heard on E! News the story is now shelved.
