Gwyneth Paltrow Is ‘Happy,’ Thank Goodness

How you feel about Gwyneth Paltrow singing a cover of Pharrell Williams’s “Happy” for an upcoming episode of Glee may help you understand how you feel about Gwyneth Paltrow overall, far more than any Vanity Fair tell-all ever could. Even more so than for her previous appearance as saucy substitute Holly Holliday on the high-school musical show (she covered Cee Lo’s “F*rget You”), you’re bombarded with conflicting thoughts and feelings: “I forgot that Gwyneth’s voice is actually great!” “If there were one person besides Pharrell whose happiness I didn’t need to hear about, it was GP’s.” “Maybe I really should watch Duets one of these days.” “Ugh, she is having too much fun. This is kind of unacceptable.”

“Oh wait, scratch that. She needs this.”


Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof


Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth


Clap along if you know what happiness is to you


Clap along, if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
