Gwyneth Paltrow under fire for tweeting N-word (or not)


Apparently a bunch of people are all mad because Gwyneth Paltrow allegedly tweeted the N-word during a Jay-Z/Kanye West concert in Paris on Friday. Those very same people do realize that's the name of the song they performed -- ELEVEN TIMES IN THAT ONE NIGHT.

"Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh," a message on @GwynethPaltrow read Friday, showing a photo of the onstage shenanigans and giving a shoutout to one of Jay-Z's pals and his cousin. That was enough for a lot of folks (and a lot of gossip outlets desperate for items, like this one) to get torqued and say that's not right for Paltrow to tweet to her nearly 1 million followers. Except it seems she didn't write it, in any case.

"Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in paris for real from Gwens Phone my bad I was Fkd up please excuse it! We were lit!" tweeted songwriter The Dream, a.k.a. @MrTeriusNash. So that explains that reference. "What! WE GIVE THE WORD TO MUCH POWER!" he added.

Gwyneth even noted "Hold up. It's the title of the song!" in her defense, but we don't see what the big deal is. Why isn't anyone on Jay-Z or Kanye for calling their song that? The Juice* will have to be very careful when we tweet this.
