Reciting the Classic Lines

You would think the ladies behind the iconic lines from he movie would be able to repeat them at any given notice, but they can't. Rachel McAdams told the magazine, she couldn't think of one quote when asked to write them down for fan. "I couldn’t think of any of them! It’s been 10 years! So I said, 'Well, what are your favorites?' So she literally fed me all these lines, like 'Is butter a carb?'"

She's not the only one with missing word blunders, Lohan couldn't remember the importance of October third when fans asked her, " someone said, 'It’s October 3rd!' I was like, 'What? I don’t understand!' I didn’t know what they meant. Then I realized it!"

The Battle to Play Regina George

Lindsay Lohan almost had the role of Regina George. Tina Fey wanted to cast her but director Mark Waters and executive producer, Lorne Michaels, felt other was, "Mark and Lorne had the good sense to say, “No, she gets to turn into Regina.”

Lindsay was also gunning for the role. "I wanted to play Regina. I had just played—in Confessions and Freaky—not the cool girl in school. I was still 17 years old and I wanted to be the cool girl on set. So I had a war with him, and he goes, “No, Cady is the heroine, and that’s who you are.”

Rachel McAdams Wanted to Play Cady with a C

Rachel McAdams actually wanted to play the part that Lindsay Lohan received. "Originally, I auditioned for Cady. Mark [Waters] said, 'I see Cady a little bit younger, but I think it makes sense if Regina kind of grew up a little too fast.'"

Dog Biting Amy Poehler's Nipple

The hilarious scene where Amy Poehler's—she played Regina George's mother—chihuahua bites her nipple was created by an actual wiener in her bra. Rachel McAdams remembers the scene, "They, like, pinned a piece of a cocktail wiener into her bra—She’s trying to do her lines and being so professional, and this dog is chomping on her fake boob. I’ll never forget that."

Recent High School Graduate on Set

Amanda Seyfried recently graduated when she landed the role in the iconic film. "I had just graduated high school! It was terrifying. I don’t know what I would have done without Lacey Chabert. She was my angel. She took me in, and we’d hang out in her trailer and listen to Dido."

To Sequel or Not to Sequel, That is the Question

Like many classic that you want to see continued, Tina Fey wasn't focused on making a sequel, "At the time we did want to start the conversation about the sequel, and for whatever reason I was like, 'No!!! We shouldn’t do that!'" However now she regrets having that attitude towards it in the beginning, "Now I look back and I'm like, 'Why?' But now, no -- it’s too late now."

The Tale of the Pink Uggs

Because every Wednesday they wear pink both Fey and Lohan remember the quest for Lohan to get pink uggs. "I remember 17-year-old Lindsay was on a mission to find pink Uggs. That was, like, what she was working on," Tina said and Lindsay agreed, "I had been online trying to get pink Uggs because I had a pink pleated skirt in the scene where I fall into the garbage can. I was like, 'I need pink Uggs!' I mean, I was rhinestoning my phone at the time with Swarovski crystals. [Laughs] So it was somewhat Method."

The Plastics in the Future

The cast predicted where their characters would be in the future, Lohan said, "Cady’s with Oprah in Africa working at children’s schools with a family, teaching girls to be nice to each other." Seyfried says, "Karen would manage or own a store that sells really cool dog attire, like Swarovski dog collars and Halloween costumes for animals."

Chabert says "Gretchen is probably running the Toaster Strudel empire—she and Jason worked it out," and McAdams predicts, "Regina is a Real Housewife."

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
