For The Stans: Gwyneth Paltrow Says Beyonce Is “The Most Talented Human Being On The Planet”

- By Bossip Staff

Looks like y’all aren’t the only Bey Bey stans out there:

Beyoncé was a great teacher to Gwyneth Paltrow while the latter was learning to be a musical performer for Country Strong. Perhaps a little too great.

“Beyoncé is the most talented human being on the planet,” Paltrow, 38, tells Harper’s Bazaar U.K. in its March issue, on newsstands Thursday. “She has so much mastery over what she does. It’s not even confidence – it’s on a whole other level. It’s mind-blowing.”

Beyoncé, 29, was trying to be helpful, but Paltrow at times found her example intimidating. “I watched her [perform] a lot to see how she did it, and I was like ‘S—! I can’t do that!’ ” Paltrow says. The actress ended up becoming a very believable country singer for the film role. But she was still terrified when called on to perform live at the CMA Awards in November.

“Two weeks before I did it, I was dying,” she says. “I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. I was like, ‘Why would I say yes to this? What is wrong with me? What kind of maniac would agree to do this?’ ” Much to Paltrow’s surprise, the performance went well. She says: “It was one of those nights I’ll look back on and think, ‘Wow, I can’t believe I actually pulled that off.’ “

Do you agree with Gwyneth??

      So do not agree with your comment. They were okay for their time but she is definitely more talented. She has done more and is absolutely on another level.

    “Beyonce is ONE of the most talented human beings on this planet.”

    Its her opinion so you can’t get mad at her tho.

  • RafiD'Angelo

    I can’t think of a more entertaining living performer than Beyonce. I’m not a fan of her voice, but damn if she don’t put on a good show.

    But she’ll never be a good actress. I wouldn’t even put her in a high school play let alone big budget hollywood films.

    • dame liz

      Get yourself off the ghetto short bus and expose yourself different artist thanks.

    • cammi

      listen if you think beyonce is one of the most talented human being on the planet you need to step outside the ghetto hood box. Apparently you people don’t know what talent is.

    • john

      you don’t listen to anyone else if you did you wouldn’t be the least bit interested in beyonce because her music is trash compared to the artists you’ve mentioned.

  • cammi
