Truth be told, I couldn’t care less about Gwyneth Paltrow. Okay, she made for an awesome Pepper Potts in the Iron Man movies. I especially love how she delivered that line about occasionally taking the trash out. But for the rest, I can’t really be bothered.
So why am I posting about Gwyneth Paltrow having an app up in the iTunes Store? Because it is so ridiculous!
The app is called Goop City, obviously taken from her site “goop“. She has her fair share of followers, and I think I have read a post here and there, but nothing to write home about. Going back to the app, the concept is simple: Gwyneth shows you around some of her favorite cities.
There is nothing wrong about that, is there? After all, those of us who like traveling can always use a city guide that will point the way to the places worth visiting and things worth doing. I guess it’s just that Goop City caters to people who live in a totally different world. Obviously, I cannot relate to that world.
UPROXX shared some of the app’s content (sorry, but I am not shelling out $4 for an app that I will never get to use), and it just blows my mind.
Take this for example.
Gwyneth Paltrow on the Eloise Suite at The Plaza: “If the $995 a night price tag is a bit steep, the Eloise store has a dress up section.”
There is no need to point out that the price tag is more than a “bit steep” for the average person, yes?
Here’s another one.
Gwyneth Paltrow on No. 6: “Their vintage selection is key, as, of course, are their famous wooden heeled shoes — a perennial essential.”
That is, if you are willing to part with $500 for a pair – at the very least.
I guess that it is all a matter of perspective and situation in life. I just can’t help but think that if people can afford all this, do they really need an app to find out about the “good finds” in a particular city?
If you are a hardcore Gwyneth fan, though, get Goop City at the iTunes store.
