"I have got the perfect song for Jay-Z. In fact, that's the best one that I had for my album which never made it. ... But I want to give it to [Jay-Z], because I think it suits him more. It's insane. He's never done anything like that. ... I was really surprised he liked 'XXXO' actually. ... It's more sort of [an] electro vibe ... and his verse is so great. It was good to hear him say the word 'metrosexual.'" —M.I.A. on collaborating with Jay-Z [NME]

"Absolutely yes. I love the character. I love the stories. But only if Paul Greengrass says he will direct again. So far, though, he's decided not to. I'd definitely say yes if he went for it.

"I want to be a balanced artist so it's not gimmicky. What people don’t know is that before I was doing that craziness I was doing me, I was just doing regular sounding rap that anyone could hear and identify with. But once I started doing all that weird shit — I'm not mad at it because it got everyone’s attention, but I can sometimes forget that I come from a real authentic place in hip-hop." —Nicki Minaj [Vibe]

"If my sons told me they wanted to be in the entertainment business, I'd lock them in their rooms until they turned 30." —Britney Spears [Cosmo via HuffPo]

"Oh my God, poor girl. She's Britney Spears all over again. It's happening right before our eyes ... she's definitely headed the Britney route. It's worse. Look at those outfits. It's bad." —Katy Perry on Miley Cyrus [Life & Style via Ace Showbiz]

"My name is Lady Gaga and I used to sit right over there, way far in the back and way up top. I used to stare at this side of the room, and I used to think, 'I'm gonna be up there.' Every second you watch me on this stage, you remember, I was sitting where you are." —Lady Gaga to the audience at Madison Square Garden [MTV]

"Most booties that propel girls are usually the bigger booties. I have a little tiny one, but it is, nonetheless, juicy." —Cameron Diaz [Harper's Bazaar]
