New Morrissey Album a Complete Failure, Says Morrissey

“I am sorry that Swords was such a meek disaster. It was proposed and accepted as a budget-priced CD, yet emerged everywhere as the most expensive CD in the racks. It was poorly distributed and didn’t stand a chance, and ranks as the lowest chart position I’ve ever encountered.” —Morrissey on his latest compilation [True-to-you via NME]

“Guy [Ritchie] kept telling me to hit this guy and keep hitting him harder until I just said ‘No I won’t do it, I’m not going to do this again.’ The guy was swelling up a little and he goes ‘I’m alright son.’ I was like ‘I know you’re alright but I don’t feel good about it.’” —Robert Downey Jr. is anti-violence [Showbiz Spy]

“I think Stu should get her pregnant, and that she should do a pregnant strip dance. I know it sounds so wrong, but it sounds so right.” —Heather Graham on her ideas for a sequel to The Hangover [E! Online]

“I think they’re more like Cagney and Lacey. As a kid, I wanted to be Cagney — or Lacey.” —Will Ferrell compares he and Mark Wahlberg’s The Other Guy characters to a couple of eighties women [MTV]

“At the beginning of the process, it would be Daniel [Day-Lewis], dancing half-naked and singing and at the end, I would say dancing half-naked, singing and Daniel.” —Marion Cotillard on the switch in the order of her fears about shooting Nine [MTV]

“Coldplay and Radiohead bug the hell out of me because it’s so soulless. They don’t care about you. They care about lining their coffers.” —John Lydon is the latest famous person to take shots at Thom Yorke and Chris Martin [NME]
