Vote for the Quote of the Day

84420__teri_lCelebrities say the darnedest things. Which can make it hard for PopWatch to name a single Quote of the Day. And so, muscular readers, we’re asking you to do some of the heavy lifting for us, by voting for your favorite in the comments board below.

A) ”In all my career, in my ups and downs, I’ve never had a beauty campaign. This was meaningful that at almost 41 years old, I could be getting my first beauty campaign."
-Teri Hatcher (left), on being named the new Nice ‘n Easy hair color spokesmodel

B) ”[Martha Stewart's] courage and strength is definitely encouraging.”
-Lil’ Kim, discussing her unlikely role model as she contemplates her own one-year prison sentence, which begins next Monday

C) ”People are like, ‘Yo, aren’t you scared that something’s going to happen to you?’ I was like, ‘I can think of a lot worse things that could happen to me, like how about not eating for five days? Or how about not knowing where my f—ing family is?”’
-Kanye West, talking about potential backlash from his recent televised comment that ”George Bush doesn’t care about black people”

D) ”Wow. Damn, that’s a good question. … Is ‘I don’t know’ an acceptable answer?”
-Dave Chappelle, asked what’s ahead for him after walking away from his hit Comedy Central series earlier this year

I’ll start things off by voting for C. In an age where most celebrities are very careful about choosing their soundbites, West’s brand of candor is kind of refreshing, whether or not you agree with him.

    Obviously the winner is A. Can’t wait for the ads.

  • Ceballos

    C: Kanye…no question. Keeping things perfectly in perpective

  • Lene

    No question – C.

  • Nw Represent

    I’d go for B or C. It’s a little odd to picture Martha Stewart offering Lil ‘Kim some smokes and advice on what gang to join.
    Incidentally, did Martha Stewart convert to Islam while in Jail? Maybe her and Lil Kim could go on Oz together next season?

  • kj

    definitely C!

  • Winona

    Without question, choice C. Kanye’s unabashed candor is refreshing…very Lennonesque.

  • Scott

    I agree with C too. It was a rare moment of uncensored emotion, something we don’t often get to see these days.

  • Brandon

    C – But only because of how misguided it is. Katrina is the reason that no one ate for four or five days and that people could not find their families, not George Bush. It is easy to lay the blame at the feet of one man, and even refreshing in a way. But is it honest? Of course not. People are angry and hurt, and Bush is certainly an easy target. And he can be blamed for many things but not this. It is time to stop playing the blame game and to begin restoring our lost cities and our neighbors’ homes. We must mend together, as a nation, like we did after 9/11, and move on as a nation.

    Gotta be C. And I’d say more, but it would start political wars. :)

    C. A big duh there. Kanye’s one of the only celebs out there with the gonads to tell it like it is, warts and all. There are other celebs who take his side, but none who are as passionate as he is. He wears his heart on his sleeve and is proud of it.

  • Dan

    C – Because it helps weed out entertainers from my pop culture intake. I liked Kayne enough… until his comment. I just don’t have time for idiots.
    Same deal with Dixie Chicks. Loved ‘em. Then they said something I thought was idiotic. Now everytime one of their songs comes on — try as I might — I can’t think of them the same way. All I see is their EW cover story lauding them as victims of free speech.
    I love candid speech because it is refreshing. Unfortunately, it also comes with a price.

    On the Kanye tip, does anyone think he is making controversial comments for publicity? The cynic in me finds it interesting that Kanye would make a very public statement about homophobia in hip hop not even a month before he calls the President a racist and around the time his second album got released.
    I mean, imagine being called Hip hop’s next great thing and then having a disaster around the time you plan to release your sophomore album. Wouldn’t a nice controversial comment assure you more press time and the chance to speak to Ketie Couric to sell some albums and of course “clear the air about what was said”? Love him or hate him, Kanye’s comments have made him a household name and he was already pretty famous.

  • Bryan

    No question “C”…. You can’t tell me that if this storm had happened in an affluent primarily all white state or area they would be sitting in a non airconditioned, no food, no water, no facilities, no security, in a stadium arena with feces, urine, dead bodies, dogs and cats in the dark…….Trust and believe….

  • Tina

    Kanye hit it! Refreshing, indeed!

  • Sarah

    Winona & Bryan, well said.
    Brandon, please consider this:
    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else”
    – Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States
    I think that Kanye West is quite the patriot.
    Oh, and I vote for C.
