Posted on

Justin Bieber, ”Never Say Never”
”It’s no secret that I’ve got Bieber fever. I’ve resisted it. But I saw that documentary. People in the audience were weeping! You’re touched by what it took to get where he is.”

Jay-Z, ”Roc Boys (And the Winner Is…)
”His writing has a real feel to it, like when he hits the line, [raps] ‘Roc boys in the building tonight/Oh, what a feeling, I’m feeling life.’ When Jay speaks, we listen.”

Rascal Flats, ”My Wish”
”[Songwriter] Diane Warren turned me on to them. I don’t like to be late to the party, but I was late to the party on Rascal Flatts. I called her back and said, ‘Diane, I think I may like country music! Don’t tell anybody.”’

Jennifer Hudson, ”Where You At”
”I told Jennifer, ‘I wish you would say ”Where Are You,” because I’m so hung up on grammar.’ I know it just wouldn’t sound the same. I know, I know! I get it!”

Barry Manilow, ”Mandy”
”I dare anybody to not like ‘Mandy.’ I interviewed him, and he was so surprised I knew the words to all of his songs. I was not late to the Barry Manilow party.”
