Remember right after the movie Country Strong came out that there was talk about signing [lastfm link_type=""]Gwyneth Paltrow [/lastfm] to a record deal. Well I’m sorry to say
The deal ain’t real. It wrinkled like a bad suit. Collapsed like a house of cards, what else? I told you back when, that she was close to a deal to record a country album. But someone said, “Atlantic bosses were very interested, and [Atlantic owner] Warner chief Lyor Cohen was very supportive. But then the talks halted and the deal fizzled out. I betcha money had something to do with it. What’d you think? Opps! Here it is. There was a rumor that Paltrow wanted $1 million to sign, but that is a ridiculous figure. Atlantic is still interested in signing her.” Paltrow’s handler’s said, “Atlantic was not the only company pursuing her, and she still has not decided if she wants to record an album,” adding, it “is still something she is considering.” Well excuse me.
