Watch Gwyneth Paltrow Dance to Jay-Z + Coldplay on New Year’s Eve
Gwyneth Paltrow is married to the lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin, so it’s not surprising that spent her New Year’s Eve with her hubby’s band and their two tots, Apple and Moses, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. It was a little surprising, though, that she danced onstage to ‘Run This Town’ with Jay-Z … because it was embarrassing to watch.
Paltrow showed off her WASP roots, dancing like your mom does at weddings after too many champagne toasts. Between her jerky movements and flying ponytail, she really did dance like no one was watching — which is fine, except when thousands of people actually are. We can’t say we blame her, though: This particular writer was at the show, and it was a great one.
