Lady Gaga Not Very Good at Dissing Taylor Swift

"I don't want to hurt her feelings, because she's lovely. That Taylor Swift song? 'You Belong with Me'? Oh my God! When it comes on the radio, I sing it so loud and I'm so embarrassed! Because I so freely sing it so loud! You can't help it! The song, it's not a bad song. It's a great song! I think it's just because it's very whimsical in a way that I'm not necessarily whimsical every day. When it comes on, I just get this ... I wanna sing it! Every woman feels that way. So I didn't mean that in a bad way, Taylor. I think you're lovely and beautiful, and I think you're a great songwriter." β€”Lady Gaga [Show Studio via ONTD]

"Acting is kind of gay. It makes you soft. You got all these people combing your hair and putting a coat over your shoulders when you're cold. I don't want a coat over my shoulders! I'm a tough-ass [individual]!" β€”Quentin "Rampage" Jackson, one of the stars of The A-Team [Hero Complex/LAT]

"I’d be reading the script and thinking subconsciously about the next thing that could happen, but it couldn’t possibly happen, because it’s a movie and no one would ever do that in a movie. And then 10 pages later, your worst fears are realized, and I’m like, ‘I cannot believe this movie is willing to go further than it’s already gone, over and over and over again.’" —Sarah Polley on Splice [Toronto Sun]

"I never think it's too far because it's True Blood. I mean, anything could happen. ... You're gonna get some sex, you're gonna get some violence. I would say that this season is very action-packed." —True Blood's Rutina Wesley on whether the show ever goes too far [Parade]

“We might actually shoot a scene where Jack raids an office and runs into the washroom in the lobby and comes out nine seconds later a lot happier because I am always being asked when Jack gets to go the [sic] the bathroom." —Kiefer Sutherland on a 24 movie [Showbiz Spy]

"The story will be the same heft as 300 but it cover [sic] a much, much greater span of time — it's 10 years, not three days ... This is a more complex story. The story is so much larger. The Spartans in 300 were being enclosed by the page as the world got smaller. This story has truly vast subjects. The Athenian naval fleet, for instance, is a massive artistic undertaking and it dwarfed by the Persian fleet, which is also shown in this story. The story has elements of espionage, too, and it's a sweeping tale with gods and warriors." —Frank Miller on 300 sequel Xerxes [Hero Complex/LAT]

“I listen to zero pop music, which is really weird for someone who makes pop music. My 13-year-old self would have beaten up my 17-year-old self because she would be like, 'You're a sellout!' But that's not what it is. ... A lot of pop songs are super shallow, but this music isn't." —Miley Cyrus [SMH via Flavorwire]

“I want to do a USO tour. I want Beth Ditto to be my Marilyn Monroe, and have Iggy Pop wrestle with Bin Laden look-alikes. I want to do the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell, we’re going to hell’ tour. It would be great.” —John Waters [Out]
