Diddy’s Tracks Worth More Than Ass

"I don’t really know about the whole fuckin’ for tracks thing. I never really heard about that shit. As a producer I don’t know if some ass will make you go in the studio and spend three days making a track for chick. I can’t really see that working. It takes too much time to produce a track the right way for you to give it away for some ass." —Diddy [Ozone]

"It's really outrageous and funny, the way it's told and depicted. Nothing's taken too seriously. So even though it's a hard circumstance, the family has an incredible will to survive. And there's a lot of funny naked drunkenness." —Emmy Rossum on her Showtime series Shameless, in which she takes off her clothes and raises her nine siblings because their father is a drunk [People]

"Heading into the music studio recording my new single! Steve Morales my music producer moves into my house tomorrow to make my summer album!" —Heidi Montag [HeidiMontag/Twitter]

"I can’t write my raps on paper. The BlackBerry keys — my thumbs were made for touching them." —Drake [MTV]

"I'm probably speaking out of line or whatever, but I think it would be awesome." —Kristen Stewart on shooting Twilight: Breaking Dawn in 3-D [MTV]

"You know, I pounded the pavement for years and I know what it's like to struggle as an actor. A lot of it is luck and, certainly, a lot of it is opportunity — and the lack of that. So, I totally understand the frustration there. There's not much else that I can say about it, really ... " —Scarlett Johansson on the Facebook campaign "Give the Tonys Back to Broadway" [Broadway World]

"I need to write three parodies ... [Lady Gaga is] a great candidate, [but] I don't want to give anything away." —Weird Al Yankovic [Billboard]

"It shouldn't be about Sri Lanka; it should be about truth. It should be why, when things are changing so fast, journalism's not changing as fast as the world is changing, and no one seems to be independent enough to just be like, 'I'm going to go look into this.' Every little thing just needs to be so whitewashed on the bigger scale. I think it's really interesting to focus in and say, 'Right, we're just going to take ten fucking cell-phone footages from around the world that didn't become an outrageous piece of proof that stands up in the U.N.,' which makes the U.N. really redundant, you know what I mean?" She pauses. "But all that footage crushes so many things that we stand for. It crushes art. Like, I can't look at any art right now, 'cause I just think it's all bullshit. ... In the future, I want to move more into art. ... I think [art is] good for my ADD, my music." M.I.A. on what her GQ interview should be about [GQ]

"If you look carefully, it's a little easter egg in the film, the censors wouldn't let the wolves have genitalia. It wouldn't be PG-13 if the wolves had genitalia … They're like the action figures." —Robert Pattinson on Twilight: Eclipse [E! Online]

"I wrote a song called 'Green Day' because I was smoking a lot of dope." —Billie Joe Armstrong on the origins of the band's name [Time]
