Actress and singer Gwyneth Paltrow (Best Actress, "Shakespeare in Love," 1998) is starring in the new country music movie "Love Don't Let me Down" with Tim McGraw.

IZEA's Sponsored Tweets launched last fall, and there is a wide difference in opinion about the merits of getting paid to tweet specific products.
