Courtney Love Doesn’t Get Ke$ha, Either

“Sweetheart, you make me go all maternal. I want to save you from the jaws of impermanence and soul death. … When I watched the Youtube of you, I lost a little soul.” —Courtney Love to Ke$ha after watching the “Tik Tok” video [NYDN]

“I’m very susceptible to drugs of every kind. Coffee, it’s great because it gets me very up, but then I crash. … I’m not really interested in drinking. Tequila maybe, but champagne makes me fall asleep. It doesn’t take much. I love mushrooms and I’ve done those successfully, but I don’t like anything chemical. I didn’t like LSD, and ecstasy wouldn’t agree with me. I like stuff you can smoke. … Everyone is wired differently. Some people can do stuff that others can’t. That’s what I told my kids. Some drugs can kill you. Some are not even worth trying. Some are a lot of fun, so talk to me first.” —Susan Sarandon [Guardian UK]

“If it gets people in the seats, yes, Zac Efron and the Twilight guy. All the Twilight guys — every one of them with their shirts off, and Will Smith.” — Hangover star Justin Bartha on rumors Zac Efron will be in the next Hangover movie [Access Hollywood]

“I [was a stripper] for almost a year. I’ve lived a crazy life, for sure. It seemed like a fun thing to do at the time and I got out unscathed. It’s nothing I’m ashamed of and I’m not proud of it either. I’ve already got the director picked out. I’d like Nicolas Refn, who did the movie Bronson, to do it because he’s insane for it. It needs to be a crazy film and I think it’s also possible to do a cute, romantic movie. I’m going to be getting back in my thong again.” —Channing Tatum on channeling his stripper background for an upcoming movie [Sydney Morning Herald via Contact Music]

“I would always love to see Prince. I think he could be great. I think Paul McCartney could be great. There’s talk about Elton John being the replacement, that could be really interesting.” —Kara DioGuardi on replacing Simon Cowell on American Idol [Parade]

“If he leaves, I think the show leaves. That is a fear I live with on a day-to-day basis over there. I take it with as much a grain of salt as I can, hoping it’s not true.” —Jack McBrayer on Alec Baldwin leaving 30 Rock [Contact Music]
