Ne-Yo Probably Not Reading Your Blog

"That ain't my lane, dude. I don't beef. I don't do that. That ain't my thing. I don't do dis records. I don't do beef. I don't do any of that blogs talking about cats. I don't do that. That ain't my thing. I'm a grown man. I got money to make." Ne-Yo doesn't believe in negative campaigning [MTV]

"I guess it's pretty gratifying to know that your music has been responsible for the birth of a lot of kids. In the English cable, the first thing they said was, 'Al, do you know how many kids have been born since you've been singing this music?' I said, 'Oh, God, here we go.

"There were days when I would look around the set, with all these tattooed faces and pointy ears, bizarre weaponry and Romulan linguists, with dialogue about 'Neutral Zones' and 'Starfleet' — and I would start sweating." J.J. Abrams on being a non-Trekkie and making a Trek movie [EW]

"No Country [for Old Men] — now if you go and test that, you know, you can end up with all kinds of crazy reactions. 'Well, I don't know … The bad guy drives away. Why did he drive away? Did he ever get arrested? Why didn't he get arrested? How come this didn't happen? I didn't understand that.' You know what I mean? You have all kinds of reactions, cause they don't know exactly where the hell this thing — they don't know. They haven't even had a chance to digest the movie." Barry Levinson on test-screening [A.V. Club]

"First time somebody threw me up, I was in the fucking doctor's office and couldn't move my fucking back, my vertebrae fucking got all fucking exploded. Then it was the knee; then it was the neck. It gave me a new kind of respect for a sport I had no respect for." Mickey Rourke earns all kind of respect from critics who have no respect for him in The Wrestler [Chicago Tribune via PopMatters]
