Gwyneth Paltrow is taking a stand. She wants all those concerned about freedom and justice to join with her in protesting Vanity Fair’s cruelty to Gwyneth Paltrow.

Rumor has it that Gwyneth is frantic over an upcoming Vanity Fair profile of her that contains some less than flattering revelations. She’s already tried to get her famous friends to stop talking to the publication; now she wants them to refuse to party with VF too.

“Gwyneth feels her relationship with the magazine has been destroyed, and she’s urging pals not just to avoid doing business with the magazine but to skip the mag’s Oscar party as well,” a source told Radar.

Vanity Fair’s Oscar party is one of the swankiest, most prestigious parties in Hollywood. Even I, a humble blogger currently wearing teddy bear pajamas, know that. So I’d say Gwyneth is about to find out who her friends really are. Will Beyonce think it’s worth missing the biggest bash of the year to keep the 10 percent discount on her GOOP subscription? One thing’s for sure: I can’t wait for this Vanity Fair profile. There must be something really good in there. Maybe she’s secretly Saddam Hussein or something.
