  • Chris Marrs Piliero, who directed Britney Spears' "I Wanna Go" video, says rumors that Brit is just a puppet are "bullshit." "Every artist has management, that's their job. It's what they're paid for. I work with the artist. Your question goes along perfectly with the whole concept of the video and that press conference –it's a ridiculous, exaggerated rumor about her life and career. I met with her, talked with her, went over the concept with her. It was extremely collaborative.She suggested alternatives and tweaked other things. As much as the management is there, this was a concept that Britney really dug.She was a big part of the decision-making process." [ONTD]
  • "I started praying for [breasts] when I was, like, 11. And God answered that prayer above and beyond, by, like, 100 times, until I was like, 'Please, stop, God. I can't see my feet anymore. Please stop!' I was a lot more rectangular then. I didn't understand my body. Someone in sixth grade called me 'Over-the-shoulder boulder holder.' I didn't know I could use them. So, what I did was, I started taping them down. How long did I tape them down for? Probably until I was about 19. And, no, I don't have any psychological pain because of it." — Katy Perry [Rolling Stone]
