Date: June 1, 2012

Last week, Gwyneth Paltrow found herself at the center of a Twitter controversy when she tweeted a photo of herself on stage with Jay-Z and Kanye at a concert in Paris, captioned with the words, "N***as in Paris for real."

Despite her referring to the identically titled track on the duo's Watch The Throne album, criticism quickly descended, prompting Paltrow to defend herself in a follow-up tweet, saying, "Hold up. It’s the title of the song!”
