Jack White Will Never See This Blog Post

"In my head I'm still living and working as if there is no Internet, and treat it as a nuisance ... it is in direct opposition to the art of music being treated with respect." —Jack White [NME]

"We’re leaving the country and leaving most of the characters behind. I don’t know that I’m allowed to say where we’re going, but it’s pretty dark. I just read the first episode and we’re going doing 8 episodes and it’s going to be a longer and more complicated view of Kenny Powers fucking up." —David Gordon Green on season two of Eastbound and Down [Playlist]

"For some people, fame kills it and becomes more important than the music or the performance. But for me fame is like rocket fuel. The more my fans like what I'm doing, the more I want to give back to them. And my passion is so strong I can't sleep — I haven't slept for three days." —Lady Gaga [OK! UK]

"There is definitely some [sexual] energy between [Sookie and werewolf Alcide]. It’s not like either one of them is looking for romance, but they’re thrown into several intense situations [and] it’s hard not to bond on a deeper level. ... The first shirtless scene [Alcide, played by Joe Manganiello] had I was like, 'Who has those abs?' He’s in crazy peak physical condition. He’s eating nothing but pure protein. And of course, this being True Blood, he’s already shot his first naked scene. Hello, werewolves when they shift — no clothes!" —Alan Ball on season three of True Blood [EW]

"It wasn’t really fair because it really talked about the worst experiences of my life. I wish they had included more music instead of making it one of those Stranger Than Fiction shows." —Daniel Johnston on The Devil and Daniel Johnston [BBC via Twenty Four Bit]

"Yeah, it's good that she doesn't train Madonna any more. It was too much. She keeps people waiting — it takes up your whole day." —Gwyneth Paltrow on her trainer and business partner Tracy Anderson [Vogue via Telegraph UK]

"No, not at all, to be compared to a guy who sells 40 million records, I have no problem [laughs]. There is room for everybody. It’s a compliment. I get closer to the Marvin Gaye comparison and he gets the Michael Jackson. Those are wonderful things to be compared to." —Robin Thicke on whether he minds being compared to Justin Timberlake [Pop & Hiss/LAT]

"Plenty of people would throw their pants at David Attenborough, but it’s his character that makes him a babe magnet.” —Actress Joanna Lumley on the 83-year-old naturalist and TV host [Telegraph UK via Jezebel]
