It seems like Gwyneth Paltrow realized summer is coming to an end — but she’s not saying farewell without a fight. (Being in the only real blockbuster of the season will have that effect on people.) Clinging to what’s left of 2012’s warm rays, she released a 13-track playlist today on Jay-Z’s Life + Times website featuring her favorite summer jams.”
Her playlist is eclectic, bringing up the question of just how, exactly, she’s been spending her summer — it’s hard to imagine a situation where French Montana and Neon Indian would sound right played next to each other. In case you really needed her to beat you over the head with her genre-hopping ways, Paltrow wraps up the playlist with a mash-up of Wu-Tang Clan’s “Shame on a Nigga” and Fugazi’s “Blueprint.” She writes, “As you can probably tell, I like ethereal, mellow music in the summer time.” Ah, yes, that explains all the Juicy J.
