Paltrow got a chance to grace the Watch the Throne stage in Paris alongside The Dream and Jay-Z, then later tweeted the photo–referring to The Dream, Beyonce, Jay-Z and Jay-Z’s closest friend, Ty Ty, saying, “N*ggas in Paris for real.”
Check out the tweet below, as well as Gwyneth’s defense, saying, “Hold up. It’s the title of the song!”

See, I told you, the more we throw it out there–whether saying it to one another or titling the hottest new rap song with it, we’re making it ok to use freely and without remorse. We’ve lost the ownership of the word, but then want to get angry when people that aren’t of color throw it out like no big deal.
I’m certain Gwyneth met no real harm, considering she knows she’s on a higher platform than most and even said the statement towards Beyonce, Jay-Z and more…on Twitter of all places. But the harm was done the minute she thought of the pun in her head. Smh, I’m going to need for her to know that she can’t go around saying things like this. Bey, Jay–check your girl!
