"The pressure of being sexy and standing up for nothing is just so big. You have to be pretty tough to fight that." - M.I.A "Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?" - Andy Warhol "I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me." - Lady Gaga "As an artist, I think delusion is the greatest gift that you can bear." - Lady Gaga "Because what is a party without cake? I guess it would still be a party, but it would feel like something is missing. Something cakey." - King Julien, Madagascar. Lady Gaga on Pop music: "I think pop is ever changing, and I hope to death it never stops being so. Art is designed to be different from moment to moment, and songs should reflect that. They shouldn’t all be the same. That’s my ambition as an artist. I’m not particularly obsessed with how my career will be viewed when it’s over. I’m much more obsessed with what I create along the way and how dedicated I am to each creation." - Lady Gaga "We're not growing up pal, we're growing sideways" - Joseph William Gilgun "Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's the gospel." - Michael Jackson "D'yknow, whenever I feel a bit low, I always think about that woman who got her face ripped off by a chimpanzee." - Josie Miscellaneous: "It'll all be okay in the end. Because if it's not okay, then it's not the end." "Shit happens, then you die." "You can spend, minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened - or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on." "Life is like photography - we use the negatives to develop"
