They Said What??? James Franco, Britney Spears, & Elton John

ACTRESS ROSIE O’DONNELL

(talking about Fox News’ coverage of last week’s Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C.):  “They were talking about mental illness. It’s funny how all of these conservative Republicans are suddenly so concerned about the mentally ill. Not that they’re doing anything legislatively in order to help the mentally ill. Not that they’re going to fund programs or, you know, get different housing — nobody wants to help, they just want to blame on someone else. There have been 19 shootings since Obama took office — 19. That’s shocking and it’s embarrassing. As a nation and a culture we need to do something.”

POP ICON ELTON JOHN

(about Lady Gaga):  “I’d like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can’t get through to her.  And there are times when you have to listen. When your persona begins to take over your music and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don’t question you, you’re in a dangerous place.”

POP STAR BRITNEY SPEARS

(on Miley’s VMA performance):  “I think any time you do a performance that is memorable, you’re going to have criticism.  I think she’s doing her thing, being herself.  So I give props to her.”

“BLURRED LINES” SINGER ROBIN THICKE

(about his controversial VMA performance with Miley Cyrus):  “We knew what we were getting ourselves into. We’re entertainers, and the VMAs is the perfect place for a little shock and awe.  Yeah, we kind of knew when we were in rehearsal. … We were like, ‘OK, if you touch me with your foam finger all over my crotch, obviously a few people are going to have something to say about this.’ But that was the whole point. I mean, the whole point was to excite and provoke and entertain.”

MORE THICKE

“I thought it was silly and funny. She was being humorous and naughty. But it wasn’t sexually charged at all,” he said. “That’s who she is and that’s how she likes to dance. And she was just being herself and I was just being myself.”

“ROYALS” SINGER LORDE

“I’m not a social outcast or anything. I’ve got friends. But I feel like I’m definitely an observer in social situations — I like to listen, and figure out what’s being said and what’s happening. I can’t just go to a party and not be thinking, ‘I’m at a party, I’m doing this, what does this mean,’ you know? I’m always breaking it down. It annoys my friends too — they’re like, ‘Just chill out! Have some fun.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, God… okay.”

OSCAR NOMINEE ACTOR JAMES FRANCO

“I don’t even care if people think I’m gay, so it was like, ‘Awesome!’ I mean, I wish I was. … I wish I was gay.”
