"You don’t make up or find reasons to go to war after the fact."

Senator John Kerry, ridiculing President Bush and Vice President Cheney’s new claims on October 7th that the war in Iraq was really about Saddam Hussein abusing oil-for-food programs rather than about seeking to find weapons of mass destruction.


"As far as the whole current crop of shallow, disposable celebrities, the Olsen twins are the only ones who hold my attention for more than five minutes…. It's the combination of bizarre adolescent success combined with the fact that they don't seem dumb."

Musician Moby


"My claim to fame, the reason for my success, is that I do not perspire and I rarely have to go to the bathroom."

ABC's Barbara Walters, joking in an interview


"Any speculation that the studio is trying to cut scenes from Alexander based on their depiction of the sexual relationships of the lead character is false and does not accurately represent the content of the film, which portrays Alexander the Great as heroic and a man of his time and culture."

Warner Bros. production chief Jeff Robinov in a public letter to's gossip columnist Jeannette Walls in response to her article suggesting that the film’s release was being delayed so that the studio could tone down some of Colin Farrell’s same-sex love scenes.


"Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay 75 pounds ($134) to see them should be shot. Madonna, best f---ing live act? F--- off. Since when has lip-synching been live? That's me off her fucking Christmas card list but do I give a toss? No."

Sir Elton John blasting Madonna while picking up a song-writing award in London


"Madonna does not lip-synch nor does she spend her time trashing other artists ... Elton John remains on her Christmas card list whether he is nice ... or naughty."

A Madonna spokeswoman
