"Make a sex tape and grow up. Get like Britney Spears and do some heroin. Do like Lindsay Lohan … and get some crack in your pipe … That's what I want." —Jamie Foxx's advice to Miley Cyrus, proving that he's no Leonardo DiCaprio [People]

We have a request that may at first seem bizarre, but we hope that after considering the following facts, you will understand why we are asking this of you: will you please consider changing your name from the Pet Shop Boys to the Rescue Shelter Boys?" —PETA Europe wants an act of charity from the Pet Shop Boys [Guardian UK]

"Like the cancer that is that Darjeeling guy … what’s his name? His completely cancerous approach to using music is basically, 'Here’s my iPod on shuffle, and here’s my movie.' The two are just thrown together. People are constantly contacting me saying, 'I’ve been editing my movie, and I’ve been using your song in the editing process.

And for me it’s like, ‘Regardless of what you’ve been doing, my song doesn’t belong in your movie.'" —Will Oldham on Wes Anderson and the art of writing music for movies [AV Club]

"I auditioned for the last Coen Brothers movie, and I read for one of the parts, and that's as close as I've gotten. I tanked on the audition. I was awful.

I still have the script — I saved it." —Jenny Lewis on what could have been [MetroMix]

"Claims have been made that I've been on a strict workout routine regulated by co-stars, whipped into shape by trainers I've never met, eating sprouted grains I can't pronounce and ultimately losing 14 pounds off my 5'3" frame. I'm a petite person to begin with, so the idea of my losing this amount of weight is utter lunacy. If I were to lose 14 pounds, I'd have to part with both arms. And a foot." —Scarlett Johansson is not on an Iron Man diet [Guardian UK]
