Gwyneth’s offensive offerings on Goop

Actress turned lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow has been criticised by a Hindu leader for debasing the religion by using its spiritual sayings on her website Goop. Gwyneth’s catchphrase on the site is “Nourish the Inner Aspect”, which US Hindu leader Rajan Zed argues does not at all reflect the nature of the musings on her blog. Rajan says, “The actress needs to grow-up and stop writing about mundane topics like ‘Boots by Gucci’, ‘Banana Pancakes’, ‘The Hungry Cat’ and ‘Tweezerman’ – in which she talks about taming the unruly eyebrows of men. Instead, she needs to talk about topics like realising self, immortality, deeper reality, eternity, soul, inner realms of the mind and spirit, pure consciousness. That’s if she’s truly serious about the inner aspect.” Meanwhile Gwyneth has big plans to expand her work in this area, with several books planned, and has ended her contract with cosmetics company Estee Lauder as part of a move to become a brand in her own right.
