Gwyneth Paltrow has thrown the latest jab in the most passive-aggressive feud in lifestyle-arbiter history. (So passive, in fact, we might be imagining it, but onward.) Last month, Martha Stewart Living included a recipe titled Conscious Coupling, a delicious chocolate-cream pie that doubled as a pretty obvious Goop dis (mocking her New Age beliefs and promoting a sugary carb tart? Double burn). Paltrow has replied in kind. In this week’s Goop newsletter, she included a recipe for Jailbird Cake, a delicious-sounding “no bake” cake but also a nod to Stewart’s time crafting in a minimum-security prison.
Now, you might be thinking, Okay guys, this is getting ridiculous. Jailbird Cake is just a common holiday recipe (I couldn’t find it Pinterest, FYI). However, as a woman raised on decoding the hidden insults and inside jokes of AIM profiles, these sick burns are as clear as day.
Translation: “I live for nights I’ll never remember with gurls I’ll never forget: MS + BL. LYLAS.”
