Jay Z co-signs Gov. Cuomo's plan to improve police relations:
“The criminal justice reform package proposed by Governor Cuomo today is a huge step forward in restoring fairness, protection, sensitivity and accountability for all under our justice system."
Issa Rae takes a break from race talk:
“I love being black; that’s not a problem. The problem is that I don’t want to always talk about it, because honestly, talking about being black is extremely tiring. I don’t know how Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson do it. People who talk, think, and breathe race every single day — how? Aren’t they exhausted?"
Kanye West asks Paul McCartney a golden question:
"What was pussy like in the '60s?"
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady on #DeflateGate:
"When I pick those footballs out, at that point, to me, they're perfect. I don't want anyone touching the balls after that. I don't want anyone rubbing them, putting any air in them, taking any air out. To me, those balls are perfect, and that's what I expect when I show up on the field."
J.Lo slams "Cougar" label:
“I hate they have a label for a woman who would date a younger guy. If a younger guy is interested in you, what’s the big deal? What’s the word for the man who’s after younger girls? I’m not after younger guys. If younger guys like me then that’s one thing. There’s like guys who just go after younger women. They have no name. No label."
Pharrell makes like Jaden Smith:
"You want to be camouflage? Go ahead. Blend in. But we want to be that twinkle in the sky. And you might not be able to see that star now. But it's daytime. Wait till it gets dark."
Obama's drop-mic moment at his State of the Union address:
"I have no more campaigns to run. I know because I won both of them."
