Ian McKellen on tying the knot in Britain: “I really can’t see why the government couldn’t just say gay people can get married – that would have been true equality and so much simpler.

Straight people cannot have a civil partnership they have to get married. Extraordinary.”
Brandon Flowers says Bruce Springsteen provided needed inspiration for The Killers’ forthcoming record: “Springsteen touches on the American dream, and that’s everybody’s dream. And it’s such a great idea — whether or not it’s still happening today. Most of the songs are about getting to that place, of making it to the promised land. I don’t think it’s about getting rich; it’s the idea of working hard and having your castle in the sky. And that idea runs through the record. It’s very optimistic. And we’re all from working-class families, and that’s why our songs are good, because we don’t do it half-assed. Nothing was handed to us, and so we don’t settle. We’re not afraid to throw a song away because it’s not good enough. A lot of people won’t do that.” (via pink)
