Angelina Jolie Says Hollywood Moms Shouldn't Complain . . . Is She Taking a Shot at Gwyneth Paltrow?
Not long ago, GWYNETH PALTROW suggested that she has it TOUGHER than the average mom, thanks to her GRUELING HOLLYWOOD SCHEDULE.
But in a new interview with the "New York Daily News", ANGELINA JOLIE blows that theory straight to Hell. And while she doesn't mention Gwyneth by name, it does seem like she might be taking aim at her.
She says, quote, "I'm not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food.
"When I feel I'm doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that's why I'm in a rare position where I don't have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it."
"I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain."
As far as the upcoming wedding goes, Angelina told "Good Morning America" there's still no timetable . . . quote, "We don't have a date, and we're not hiding anything, but we really don't know . . .
"I think the important thing is that whatever we do it's that the kids do have a great time, and we all, you know, take seriously the love, and the connection between all of us. But also just get silly and do something memorable."

Jack White Says Crowds Suck These Days, Because Everyone's Too Busy Messing Around with Their Phones
JACK WHITE says performing live these days isn't as great as it used to be . . . because the crowds SUCK. And he knows why.
He tells "Rolling Stone", quote, "People can't clap anymore, because they've got [an effing] texting thing in their [effing] hand, and probably a drink, too!
"Some musicians don't care about this stuff, but I let the crowd tell me what to do. There's no set list. I'm not just saying the same things I said in Cleveland last night. If they can't give me that energy back? Maybe I'm wasting my time."
Jack seems like an old-school guitar-rock guy . . . and not just because of this. Recently, he's critiqued contemporary pop music for being too much about image and presentation, and said, quote, "Dance music just doesn't have a life to it."
But in this interview, he calls DAFT PUNK, quote, "amazing" . . . reminds us that he's worked with JAY Z . . . and says KANYE WEST put on what might have been the "greatest show" he's seen in his entire life.
He says it was, quote, "more punk, more in-your-face than anything I've seen."
