Gwyneth Paltrow listens to WAP when she’s feeling down and needs to lift her spirits
Without missing a beat, Paltrow responded: “Wet A** Pussy.”
The response sent Clarkson – like all of us – into a fit of laughter. After being knocked to the ground (literally) by the answer, Clarkson stated: “I’m done! I need to see the tape back because I felt like I was like, ‘Oh, wait what?'”
She added that Gwyneth Paltrow won the prize for “favourite guest this season” for her response. Clarkson said: “That was amazing. I needed that in my soul.”
The “WAP” simp moment came amid a longer interview Clarkson had with Paltrow. During the segment, Clarkson asked Gwyneth Paltrow about her second marriage to Brad Falchuk and wondered if it was difficult for the Goop founder to move on after her divorce from Chris Martin.
Gwyneth Paltrow admitted it was “probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done”. She said it was difficult to “learn the lessons that I needed to learn from my divorce” and then “open myself up again”.
Since its release last summer, “WAP” has made waves because of its sexualised lyrics and performances.
Cardi B performed the chart-topping single with Megan Thee Stallion at the Grammys this year, prompting a wave of backlash from conservatives.
The rapper even went head-to-head with political commentator Candace Owens over the performance. The online war resulted in both threatening to sue the other when the spat turned to the topic of Owens’ husband allegedly cheating on her with her brother.
The fight began after Owens slammed Cardi B’s live performance of “WAP” at the Grammys. Owens said the not-safe-for-work performance heralded the “destruction of American values and American principles”.
