Gwyneth and her scooter
Have you seen that video of Gwyneth Paltrow on her scooter in LA nearly colliding with a school bus? Apple’s riding in back. And then Chris Martin – or at least they’re saying it’s Chris Martin – follows behind in his own scooter with Moses.
VIDEO REMOVED. SORRY.
I really, really, really want a scooter. So badly. But I’m too afraid to ride a bike on a road without a bike lane, so, you know, it’s probably not a smart idea for me. G, however, as you can see, is rather confident on hers. Maybe…too confident?
It’s the paps too, right? Let’s not just hate on her. The papping in motion situation not even I can get behind. Still, she can control what she can control. And that means not driving like an asshole.
Speaking of driving like an asshole…
Received an interesting tip about G being an asshole during the school run. When she picks up her kids, she’s allegedly been cutting the line on her Vespa. Some of the other parents are pissed. Why do her children get collected first, while the others have to wait, just because her vehicle is smaller?
This is an interesting question:
Should Vespas and/or bicycles be required to queue with sedans? Or, since they can maneuver in and other of tight spaces, should they be allowed to go wherever and whenever they want to?
Attached – my G on her scooter today at the gym.
