Beautiful, blonde Gwyneth Paltrow has managed to inspire a particular brand of hate from with her Academy Award, her rock star husband, her quirky baby names, her forever-svelte figure, and her vanity newsletter GOOP. Full of lifestyle tips that are “expensive, inconvenient and totally unsustainable,” GOOP has long been singled out as proof that Paltrow is totally self-absorbed and out of touch. But this year, Paltrow proved she is willing to work for her fame. She fought through tears and bleeding to learn the guitar for her upcoming role in "Country Strong" and then nailed her performance of the title song at the 2010 Country Music Awards. Top it off with a sassy, kick-ass musical performance on "Glee", and Paltrow quickly found herself back in the public’s good graces.
