Okay my darlings, it’s time for a new “entertainment media is a piece of shit” rant. The Media does not generally focus on Gwen (or anyone related to her) unless she has some big new project. This time it’s The Voice. Most of the time they focus on Lindsay or Kim Kardashian or anyone with a scandal they could profit off of. Gwen and Gavin live fairly quiet normal lives. They vacation with friends and family, work, exercise, shop, take the kids to school, go to doctor’s appointments, take the dogs for a walk, go to birthday and holiday parties. So, because they don’t live by the “normal Hollywood lifestyle”, the media tries this spin, every few years, with them. This is the one they always go with because in Hollywood a couple, that’s been together as long as Gwen & Gavin have (Since 1997, or 1998, I believe, with a brief split in 1999) the media can not fathom a couple being able to maintain happiness and love in their relationship for so long, so they spin this.
It’s petty and downright revolting.
Gwen and Gavin have been together for, what? 17 years? Gwen has said time and again in her lyrics that she won’t let go of Gavin that easily, so I’m certain they do what they can to keep the love alive and spice in their relationship.
Now, let’s just play along with this cover, shall we?
Why Gavin fell out of love with Gwen: Gavin speaks of nothing but love and respect for her. So, naturally the media assumes there’s something going on. We just saw the two of them in an interview together talking about The Voice! Or did we forget that she chose him to be the mentor for her team on the show? If you watch the interview again, they still look at each other, grinning and eyes sparkling, as the did almost TWENTY years ago. If that’s fake, they are the greatest actors I’ve ever seen!
Sleeping in separate beds: Who told you this? Let me guess, “a source close to the couple”? I doubt it. Anyone close to them would not have the disrespect to spill something personal like that and even if they were close enough to the family and spilt something personal like that, they wouldn’t be close to the family for long. And so what if it’s true?! My grandparents slept in separate rooms because my grandfather snored like a beast. Helena Bonham Carter has talked about how her and Tim Burton have separate HOMES. This does not signify unhappiness. How do we know this isn’t how it’s always been? We don’t, we don’t know them, and their sleeping habits are no one’s business.
Who will raise the kids?: Even if they do split, now or years from now, they will both raise the kids. Neither Gwen nor Gavin strike me as the type to deprive their children of one of their parents out of spite or discontent towards the person themselves. Regardless of an amicable or disastrous split, they would do whatever they had to in order for their sons to have time and attention from both parents. Putting your children in the middle of a war between you and their other parent is a horrible, cruel, and damaging thing to do, and it stays with them. But what do the rich care, they can pay for the therapy, right? Gwen doesn’t see herself this way. She’s always said she just feels like an ordinary girl in an extraordinary world, and somehow everyone knows her name.
Entertainment news is absolute bullshit. They don’t care about checking their facts, or sources, they just care about the next big story so they can sell their magazine. Do not be foolish enough to think any of these magazines give two shits about who they feature in their magazine. They don’t. But the masses keep buying them so why stop now?
I don’t usually post this stuff… but tabloids severely piss me off. From my personal blog. I was at the store this evening and saw this while in line.
