Ah, music divas. They can’t all be Aretha Franklin, now, can they? But that doesn’t mean they can’t deliver (or inspire) the most amusing of quotes. Here’s four for your perusal:

A) ”It will [definitely have] a lot of sexiness. If I did a [fast-food] commercial that hot, imagine what I can do with my own video.”
Paris Hilton (left), discussing plans for her first music video

B) ”Do you think [critics] would let me get away with that? I did that last time, it didn’t work.”
Guy Ritchie on why he didn’t cast wife Madonna in his latest flick, Revolver

C) ”Judging by this, Simpson’s sophomore slump is looking like a free fall.”
–Billboard magazine reviewer Chuck Taylor, on Ashlee Simpson’s new single, ”Boyfriend”

D) ”It was cool to actually feel like you’re making music, and then to have the album be No. 1 for two weeks in a row, and to see so many fans go out and buy it, I feel very supported and lucky.”
Hilary Duff, discussing new tracks on her Most Wanted greatest hits collection

I’m going to reluctantly cast my vote for Paris’ remarks (A); I’m not sure I actually want to hear her sing, or watch her writhe around on screen, but it’ll be interesting to see how far she’ll go in an effort to outskank her pop-chart rivals. Hilary’s a close runner-up; there’s something amusing about the way she unintentionally frames her previous musical efforts as somehow not making actual music. But don’t let me have the last word — weigh in with your pick for the quote of the day now!
