In case we haven’t made it abundantly clear in the past, Martha Stewart is a G. She is beautiful, she is bawdy, and she is possibly the oldest white woman to ever be referenced on a Jay Z track.
What’s great about Martha is that she has respect for her craft(s), and she’s not about to give up the floor to some next-gen charlatans just because she’s 70-plus. Last year, she flexed on the entire blogosphere in an interview with Bloomberg: “Who are these bloggers? They’re not trained editors at Vogue magazine. I mean, there are bloggers writing recipes that aren’t tested…they are not the experts.”
In the same interview, she fired shots at pretender-to-the-lifestyle-goddess-throne Gwyneth Paltrow, wondering out loud whether she’s “authentic” and setting the record straight for anyone who had it twisted: “I think I started this whole category of lifestyle.”
Now, she’s back on the offensive, making it abundantly clear that comparing GOOP to Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia is like comparing Bobby Schmurda to Nas. According to the NY Post, she told Porter magazine, “She just needs to be quiet. She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”
Gwyneth might want to think about consciously uncoupling from the game, because Martha “Even the Slammer Can’t Stop Me” Stewart will always have the last laugh.
