  • Mischa Barton, however, is not a fan of marriage: "I'm not a huge fan of marriage. It puts too much pressure on the relationship.

  • Taylor Swift has a similar view on things: "I actually do not have a boyfriend. I'm completely single," Swift says, "I think meeting someone in that way is a worry for anyone in my position. You meet someone and you can't help but be worried that they just want to date the person they see on TV.
    They are not really bothered about the real person. I think that's a curse for any relationship. But I'm not worried. It's not my big goal in life to get hitched and have a family. If I find someone really awesome I will think about it then." [ShowbizSpy]

If you work for Madonna you are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There's no such thing as a weekend." [ShowbizSpy]

I think that's the best type of love. Then when I finally told her she was like, 'You've never spoken to me in my whole life. You've only spoken to me about three times and never said anything nice'."[ShowbizSpy]
  • Pete Doherty, who prefers to be called "Peter," still can't talk much about his breakup with Kate Moss: "I really shouldn't talk about it," Doherty says, "Because really and truly, I miss her. And I'd like to speak to her. But the first part of speaking to her probably would be just not to talk about her. And that's one thing I've got to learn. But I need to talk to people so badly about it, because it's something that's so confusing for me still. But I can't. Because the only person really I can talk to would be her." [Guardian]
