Taylor Swift’s Boyfriends Were Warned About Her Meanness

"It's understandable, but ... I've never kept quiet the fact that I write songs about people. It's like, this is album number three. You guys have had fair warning!" —Taylor Swift on former lovers being upset about their exposure in her album [MTV]

“'When I begin a relationship, there’s that pressure to be the most, to be more comfortable and open than anyone else. When you finally realize that you can just be your own scared, fucked-up self and that you can still be sexy without trying to be, it’s such a great relief. When uncondensed you is enough.'” She stops and laughs. 'Hey, that’s pretty good. If acting doesn’t work out, I could have a future in advertising.'” —Anne Hathaway, star of the new movie Love and Other Drugs [Vogue]

"Like, I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was, like, straight-up offered a job." —Kristen Stewart on the joys of researching her part for Welcome to the Rileys [MTV]

"THIS IS A PSA: NOBODY SHOULD EAT 7/11 NACHOS AT 3am AND GO RIGHT TO SLEEP OR YOU SHALL FEEL THE RATH OF THE CORNER STORE GODS N THE MORNING!" —T-Pain [T-Pain/Twitter]

"It’s just meant to be funny, really. But there’s so much in music that my kids hear on a daily basis — I dare somebody to have a problem with this song!" —Cee-Lo's response to parents concerned about their kids listening to his song "Fuck You" [Pop & Hiss/LAT]

“It’s like I found myself again. You get influenced by everything you hear on the radio, or maybe by what you feel that other people’s expectations are. But then you suddenly realize that everything you need to write about is what’s inside of you — to not look outside but inside.” —Shakira on her new album, Sale el Sol, sung mostly in Spanish [NYT]
