(Newser) – Back off, Goop detractors. Gwyneth Paltrow is tired of people sniping about her advice-dispensing website.

The latest salvo came in an article in the New York Times Sunday, which noted that many can't quite figure out what Paltrow is aiming for with the new-agish site.

"I think that people like people to stay in their 'box,'" said Paltrow. "They like people to stay how they are comfortable seeing them."

What's the fuss? Gwyneth got a movie coming out or something? Or did she just want to increase traffic?
