Gwyneth Paltrow may not be forging ahead with her music career after all. At least not in the form of a solo album.
In March, at the height of her “Forget You” covering/”Glee” guest-starring/”Country Strong” frenzy, Paltrow reportedly landed a $900,000 Atlantic Records to cut an album of her own.
But now the New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that the deal may have been wishful thinking on the part of both Paltrow and record execs.
“Atlantic bosses were very interested, and [Atlantic owner] Warner chief Lyor Cohen was very supportive,” a source tells Page Six. “But then the talks halted and the deal fizzled out. There was a rumor that Paltrow wanted $1 million to sign, but that is a ridiculous figure. Atlantic is still interested in signing her.”
Meanwhile, a rep for Paltrow insists that Paltrow isn’t sure she even wants to launch a singing career. She’s still expected, however, to turn up for a few surprise appearances during this summer’s “Glee” tour.
