Goop has officially leapt beyond your screen and has headed towards newsstands this month with a new magazine featuring Gwyneth Paltrow right on the cover, naked and covered in goop, of course.

The new quarterly publication is a being made in collaboration with Condé Nast and will focus on topics like wellness, beauty, crystals, and bee-venom treatments—your typical Goop content. 

On the cover, Paltrow looks comfortable being nearly nude and completely covered in mud. Thanks to a preview from Vogue, we know a bit of what the actress and health advocate will discuss in her first editor’s letter. 

“I remember standing in a hippie health-food store in Greenwich Village,” she writes, according to Vogue. “And I saw a little paperback book describing a ‘master cleanse,’ and I was like, ‘What’s that?’ I remember the next day [after I finished the cleanse] I was like, ‘Oh, wow, I just did this cleanse, and I feel so much better. I can have a beer and a cigarette now, right?'”

Riveting! According to the site, the issue will also delve into “a do-anywhere Tracy Anderson workout, fall fashion recap, and a how-to for having better orgasms.”

Despite the recent shuttering of many print publications, Goop magazine is retailing for almost $15 and people have a lot of thoughts about the new project. 

Can Goop singlehandedly revive print or will it eventually pivot to video? Stay tuned on Sept. 19, when the magazine is released on newsstands, to find out. 

TV reporter masterfully handles abuse from random stranger on the street

Why are people so unkind?

Maggie Raworth, a journalist with 9 News in Ballarat, Australia, was confronted by a stranger who stopped his car and walked out to harass her. And it was all caught on camera.

“I make ten times the amount of money you do. Get a real job,” the unnamed man tells Raworth. “Fucking journos. Lowest of the low.”

To her credit, Raworth kept the confrontation civil, asking the man what she had personally done to make him angry. But he wasn’t having it, and continued to abuse her with profanities and comments about her appearance.

The incident didn’t faze Raworth too much, who told News Corp she actually loves her job and that she has enough of a thick skin to deal with it.

“It happens all the time, every TV journalist can say that happens to them almost on a daily basis. I get yelled at from cars all the time, it’s just part of the job,” Raworth said.

“Don’t just hate somebody you don’t even know purely because they work for the media. Nobody deserves to be spoken to like that and you shouldn’t just have to accept people speaking to you in that manner.”

Damn right.
