“Justin Timberlake is the single most talented human being I’ve ever met in my life, and it sickens me. He is, like, 12 years old or something! He has 0 percent body fat, he is musically gifted, he has a great ear for accents and he is hilarious … I saw him on SNL — he is 99 percent ham and 1 percent water. The dude is a natural entertainer, and he learned the French-Canadian accent in about five seconds. He’s a good goalie now; he hadn’t played [hockey] before.” Mike Myers [MTV]

“How many rich jerks that want to be in Sex and the City can there possibly be in America? OK, a lot, but there’s not a limitless supply. If the upcoming Sex and the City movie tanks, it will be for the societal good.” Mike Doughty on gentrification [Gothamist]

“I know that judges are not fans of what they call ‘props,’ but I think that most props are thought of as crutches, and I thought that the unicycle was hardly a fake set of bull horns.” Adam Carolla on his ouster from Dancing With the Stars [Us]

“We’ve said time and time again that we derive our songs from many different sources. Have you ever heard Patrick sing? There’s the bulk of the R&B right there.” Joe Trohman on Fall Out Boy’s myriad influences [MTV]

“We want to be funny enough that they laugh, but not so funny that they don’t think it’s real. We try to walk that line carefully. Yes, we really want people to call in and give real money and not ironically funny money.” Robert Smigel on his upcoming benefit show, Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Benefit for Autism Education [AP via Yahoo]
