"People tell George Clooney it's great, but we all know it sucked. I made two bad movies instead — Planet of the Apes and The Truth About Charlie — but doing that was better than sitting with Brad [Pitt] and George, telling the press how great everybody is! ‘We were in Europe, George was funny, then we had some wine…’ — that's not for me." Mark Wahlberg on Ocean's Twelve [MSNBC]

"I met them a few years ago, said hello and realised they were just men in anoraks. They looked like a gang of little poncey masturbators." Johnny Rotten on Coldplay [Sun UK via Digital Spy]

"I never got dudes (and it's only dudes) that yelled for Cole to pee, or pee on them. A good show doesn't need pee-pee or poo-poo garbage, unless it's a bad show and you gotta chop it up a bit." —Black Lips' Jared Swilley [Pitchfork]

''It's weird that I now know a good restaurant and a good bar in Brussels. Why would I know that?" —Ben Gibbard [NYT]

"A lot of the lyrics were inspired by … the American Office, because so many people are in a position to answer to people they don't want to answer to." Chris Martin must be ecstatic that Ryan is heading to jail [MTV]
