  • "I never cared about the whole, 'I hate to be famous. I'm going to go brood somewhere because people bought my record.' I've never subscribed to that. I've subscribed to the idea that fame just for the sake of fame is pretty disgusting and worthless so it became about being famous for the right reasons. And that was what the hardest part for a couple years there - determining if what we were doing was good or if it wasn't. People coming up to you like, 'Yeah, the Backstreet Boys sell a lot of records, too. What does that mean?' So we were confused on that level. We didn't really know what we were doing, if it was going to stand the test of time or if people would look at the band as nothing but novelty." — Jack White on The White Stripes. He also says: "I love hip-hop if it's done with a sense of the blues, even if the person who is creating it isn't thinking that at all. I think Jay-Z is just incredible. The Black Album is one of the best albums of the decade." [Rolling Stone]
  • "I don't know what has happened to movies, but lately every movie is at least 20 minutes too long. It used to be that if you were three hours long it was because it was epic — a movie about Gandhi; something with very important subject matters. Now, it doesn't matter what you're making a movie about; everyone thinks their movie is so brilliant that it has to be three hours long. Not to be critical but… well, we all know which movies those are." — Ethan Hawke. [LA Times]
  • "There is no script yet. I don't think they know when they're going to shoot because... it all depends on that. It's just really cool because I love being around those people. I love Mitch Hurwitz and I think he is going to direct it. He is someone who means a lot to me. He's just a really big inspiration to me. I am really looking forward to working with him as a director. Also, all those people are really good people. I am excited to get to be around them all at once." — Michael Cera, on the Arrested Development movie. [Pop Wrap]
  • "I love it. I think she looks amazing. I'm not gonna lie, she looks really good. It's '80s meets 2010 — she has the party in the back and short in the front. She looks so much better now than she did three or four years ago." — Hailey Glassman on Kate Gosselin's hairdo, as seen on the cover of People. [ET]
