Gwyneth Paltrow’s Reported Record Deal ‘Fizzled’

Our Country

Well, it looks like Chris Martin will remain the only professional musician in the Martin/Paltrow family. Gwyneth Paltrow's foray into the country (and otherwise) music world seems to have come to a halt--her reported album deal with Atlantic Records apparently has fallen apart.

According to an item in the New York Post, Atlantic was "very interested" and "very supportive" of Paltrow's music, but then "the talks halted and the deal fizzled out."

The item noted that the nearly $1 million rumored to be offered to Paltrow by Atlantic was "a ridiculous figure" and that the label is still interested in signing her.

Paltrow's rep told the Post that Paltrow is still considering whether or not she wants to record an album--which is basically what Paltrow herself told the Hollywood Reporter a couple of months ago.

The Oscar-winning actress's foray into the music world, although the object of much critical scrutiny, has been far from unsuccessful. In the country world alone, she charted a single, and performed at the 2010 CMA Awards and 2011 Academy Awards. Additionally, she delivered pop performances on the hit TV show Glee and the 2011 Grammy Awards.

Are you still hoping Gwyn might decide to make an album? Or are you relieved this seems to be dead in the water for now? Be sure to let me know what you think.
