Goop readers who listened to Pharrell’s “Happy” and thought if only dear Gwynnie and her Spence-honed pipes could take this ebullient ditty out for a walk, rejoice!
Put down your $85 bottle of Restorea hand cream, kick off your $495 beige and magenta Diemme slip-ons and stop reading that blog post on dark leafy green recipes. Gwyneth Paltrow will return to “Glee” as substitute teacher Holly Holliday for the Fox’s show’s 100th episode this week along with Kristin Chenoweth, Harry Shum Jr., Amber Riley and Mark Salling. Newcomer Chace Crawford will also guest star.
Cinema’s leading WASP goddess will once again perform a cover of a current pop hit, and Entertainment Weekly has the recording. During past appearances, Paltrow sang Cee Lo Green‘s “Forget You” and Adele’s “Turning Tables.” She’s also flexed her musical muscles in films such as “Duets” and “Country Strong.”
“Happy” was recently nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song, but came up short on awards night. “Let it Go” from “Frozen” scored the prize.
What do you think? How does Gwyneth’s version compare to Pharrell’s?
