Martha Stewart is the undeniable expert on all things home, food, and lifestyle. No one would ever deny that! She created an entire empire out of her entertaining ideas. But in a new interview, she has some choice words for anyone trying to get in on her territory.
Martha gave an eye-opening interview to Bloomberg Television for their series, “The Business of Being.” While chatting with anchor Stephanie Ruhle, she got candid about her feelings about fellow lifestyle scribe Gwyneth Paltrow and the secrets behind her success.
Of Gwyneth, Martha says, “She really wants to be part of the lifestyle business… She must be doing something right. She’s a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle.” She continued, “She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter. Fine. Good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle.” Well, there you have it! Watch her discuss it here:
She went on to explain how much she’s not slowing down with age. “I don’t ever think about how old I am or how old you, I have no idea how old you are. I never think about that,” she explained. “The only time that it ever occurs to me is when I say, ‘Okay, who is gonna climb Precipice with me today,’ when I’m up in Acadia National Park and only [laughs] one person raises his hand. That makes me feel really bad. And it’s just tells me, ‘Boy, I need some new friends.’” She is amazing.
