Poor Beyonce, She Needs To Pretend To Care About Gwyneth’s Pregnancy Advice
Apparently Beyonce Knowles and Gwyneth Paltrow are besties. Or so it would seem from all the pregnancy advice Beyonce is receiving from Gwyneth. Tips such as “Drink a shot of wheatgrass each morning” and “Rub belly with coconut oil to prevent stretch marks.” Oh, and my personal fave, “Meditate for an hour every day.”
Really, Gwynnie? Look, there is nothing quite as wonderful as having BFFs to guide you through your pregnancy and those first days post-delivery â€“ someone whom you trust completely and who’s been there before. The person who tells you that yes, you have a healthy glow, but that you also have sweat marks on your designer T or that you’re breathing really loudly. That’s what girlfriends are for. But Gwyneth’s advice just sounds so holier-than-though and, dare I say it, unsolicited.
That’s the thing with pregnant women. They get advice from everyone, everywhere, and 99.9% of the time they never asked for it. The worst is when moms tell a pregnant woman, “Sleep now while you still can!” or “Enjoy the peace and quiet because you won’t have any for the next 18 years.” This type of advice does nothing but stress out preggo. She’s already well aware that life as she knows it is about to end, so shut up with the preaching and just treat her to a mani already.
Gwyneth has two children â€“ Apple, 7, and Moses, 4 â€“ with rocker-husband Chris Martin. And I’m sure her she has good intentions with all of her pregnancy advice to Beyonce (maybe?). But as Closer magazine reports, “[Gwyneth’s] advice can be a little overwhelming. She’s sending packages of herbs and vitamins â€“ but Beyonce wants to do things her own way, what suits her best and not be told what to eat.”
Ha ha. Sometimes celebs really are just like us.
