Report: Gwyneth Paltrow ends Ryan Murphy-Kings of Leon feud

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Ministry often makes "what can't she do?" jokes in regards to Gwyneth Paltrow, but now she's testing even our limits of what an average A-lister can achieve: peace talks.

Though passion projects like "Glee" and GOOP are well within her wheelhouse, a new report suggests that Paltrow calmed tensions between "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy and rockers Kings of Leon.

In a January cover story with the Hollywood Reporter, Murphy blasted the band for not giving "Glee" rights to the track "Use Somebody," labeling the gang "self-centered ... and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song."

Responding on Twitter, Leon member Nathan Followill shot back at Murphy to "buy a new bra" and get over it, speech that was deemed homophobic.

Paltrow to the rescue.

A THR source says the actress organized a series of text messages, and therefore healing, between her old pal Murphy and the band and "it's all good now."

What do you think of Paltrow's peacemaking? Tell us in comments below.

wow, it's funny the kings of leon would brand anyone gay. take a listen and a look to yourselves. Not necessarily slayer or motorhead or anything.

Mr. Murphy needs to realize that not all recording artists are going to grant permission to use their songs on Glee. Therefore, Mr. Murphy should not berate or belittle those artists who refuse to. Mr. Murphy needs to graciously acknowledge this and move on. I do have to admit, although I enjoy the show very much, some versions of certain songs get really mangled by the Glee cast enough to make one cringe.

Has it ever occured to the producers of Glee that some people may find the show to be inane and don't want to be involved with it?

uhh, if KOL don't want their songs on glee, they don't want their songs on glee. get over yourself ryan murphy
