“I just tried to speak from my experiences. When I was 13 and 14, there were a lot of jokes about my bar mitzvah and my grandparents, and then when I got older, it became more about touching boobs and trying to get liquor, you know? I kind of ran the gamut of infantile behavior. And I haven't moved one step forward since.” —Seth Rogen, on his early stand-up career [AV Club]

“It is so weird how stories are told. There is your side, my side, and the truth. Somebody has to figure it out. I guess we will never really understand or figure out life completely. That's God's job. I can't wait to meet him … or her.” —Britney Spears, contemplating the meaning of life (or the meaning of Joan Osborne) [BritneySpears.com]

“I think one of the main things in songwriting is definitely friction between the words and the melody. It's got to be done very delicately because both elements are somewhat explosive, and all of a sudden the song becomes like a crystal meth lab. You know, you don't want to blow up your family.” —Rufus Wainwright on songwriting and family values [Salon]

“I'm a 39-year-old woman in a sexist, ageist business given a golden second chance, and I'm profoundly grateful for that. I hope music continues to bring me joy. And I hope people still want to listen.” —Paula Cole, best known for singing the theme song to Dawson’s Creek and being a wishful thinker [Billboard]
