Dr. Dre Laughed at Eminem’s ‘Weenie’

"Looking back on it now, there was some pretty mediocre things that I was putting out … when I was making Encore, my addiction took on a life of its own. I remember going to L.A., recording with Dre and being in the studio high, taking too many pills, getting in this slap-happy mood and making songs like ‘Big Weenie’ and ‘Rain Man’ and ‘Ass Like That.’ ... [Dre] would just laugh. He didn’t understand what was going on." —Eminem [Vibe]

"[The song 'Friday Night T.G.I.F.'] is my 'Waking Up in Vegas 2.0.' It's one of those no-brainer radio songs. Remember when 'I Gotta Feeling' came out? I'm like, really? But a week later, I'm going, 'Mazel tov!' like everyone else." —Katy Perry [USAT]

"[O]ne of the staff members came running inside looking horrified and he was like, 'You guys shouldn't let her go on there. It's really dangerous out there and they're ready to throw stuff at her and hurt her.' ... [And then a fan came up and said,] 'Please don't go up there. They're ready to just hurt you, they're not fans." —Tila Tequila on the moments before she went onstage and got pelted with rocks and feces at the Gathering of the Juggalos [E!]

"Lady Gaga is a fucking idiot. The way she mentioned cocaine, I think she should really get spanked! ... You can damage and hurt kids. I'm appalled. ... [And] her music is like elevator music, as far as I'm concerned. All the gays are looking for something new. She's history!" —Janice Dickinson [Life & Style]

"Everyone knows that Rihanna has a great big forehead! There's nothing wrong with it." —Ne-Yo [Suck My Pop via OMG Music]

"Yeah, I got to play dress up. I do it for a living, like a retard." —Jennifer Aniston on dressing up like Barbara Streisand for Harper's Bazaar [Regis & Kelly via HuffPo]

"You know, that song won't lie down. It just won't go away. I mean, there's a Mike Tyson moment associated with it now. It's just bizarre. I guess it has a bit of mystery, a lot of atmosphere, and the drums coming in, pinning people to the wall. ... The urban myth that's sprung up around the lyrics — it's weird. As I've said, there's absolutely no story behind it because the lyrics were improvised." —Phil Collins on "In the Air Tonight" [Spin]

"I show frontal. I show my [whistles]. I play a soft core pornography mogul who videotapes girls on Spring Break, and that's what this is about. ... [Bit the water was] below freezing. It's not like when you see me, Jimmy, at the saunas here in Hollywood and you're like, 'Jerry! Whoa, Jerry!'" —Jerry O'Connell on Piranha 3D [Jimmy Kimmel via HuffPo]
