50 Cent: Lil Wayne Stole That Vest From Cyndi Lauper

"Yeah, I would like to work with [Lady Gaga]. It’d be cool. I think she’s fresh. I haven’t seen that before. What she’s doing now is new, with all the crazy dress codes and all that stuff. ... A lot of things in music/entertainment are recycled. It’s gonna sound like a dis, but it’s no disrespect that you would see Lil Wayne wear a little black vest and that hat. I saw Cyndi Lauper wearing that; it was [just] on a different artist. And even the glasses that Jay-Z had on, that is Frank Sinatra. These are all iconic pieces coming back." —50 Cent [Rap Up]

"Well the music was rubbish. ...

"He's a great actor. I've seen him, and he's terrific. A lot of [my Twitter followers] have been saying that he ought to have a chance to audition for the role. So I tweeted back by saying, as far as I'm concerned ... anybody should have a chance to audition for the role. I certainly think he should have a chance to audition." —Stan Lee on the "Donald Glove for Spider-Man" campaign [Splash Page/MTV]

"I really want to play Wonder Woman. I am obsessed with Wonder Woman." —Jennifer Love Hewitt [MSN]

“Les Grossman's life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds.

"It's like mixed feelings. At first, I felt old. Number one, you feel old when they start remaking your stuff." —Ralph Macchio, the original Karate Kid, on the Jackie Chan remake [Access Hollywood]

"The religious symbolism is not meant to denote anything negative, but represents the character's battle between the dark forces of this world and the spiritual salvation of the Soul. Thus at the end of the film, she chooses to be a nun, and the reason her mouth and eyes disappear is because she is withdrawing her senses from the world of evil and going inward towards prayer and contemplation." —Director Steven Klein on Lady Gaga's "Alejandro" video [MTV]

I went to myself: 'Wow man, I'm glad I didn't get that part.' But you know, secretly, I couldn't help thinking that if I had got it maybe I could have lived exactly the life I wanted to. That I would never have had to worry about my career. Damn DiCaprio! 'Damn that kid!'" —Titanic-auditioner Ethan Hawke on Leonardo DiCaprio [Telegraph UK]
