Usually, we give you an intelligent introduction to our end-of-week quotes blog. But this week... well... JESUS... Miley Cyrus dressed up like a baby and sang about grown-up relationship problems while doing so, and we're so freaked out, it's kind of blurred any normal commentary we may have otherwise had about any of this week's events. We're sorry. But once you see the video, we think you'll understand why we're having problems. Just go look at it. Or not. We're not forcing you.

“It is really hard sometimes for women in music. It’s like a fucking boys' club that we just can’t get into. I tried for so long, I just really wanted to be taken seriously as a musician for my intelligence more than my body. You don’t always feel like when you’re working that people believe that you have a musical background, that you understand what you’re doing because you’re a female.”

“I want to be as good a president as Beyoncé is a performer.”

If you assumed that “Wrecking Ball” would be the creepiest video Miley Cyrus ever made, you were wrong. So very, very wrong…

“I watch Investigation Discovery all day. All day. Like, I know everything about law and crime-solving. Everybody that comes to my house, they’re like: “Do you not take it off this channel?” Meek thinks that I’m planning on killing him. We live together now, and every time he wakes up, it’s on. Every time he goes to sleep, it’s on.”

"It's everything that kind of eluded us in a lot of ways when we were coming up. So many people were opinionated about N.W.A., I think everyone now at this point, no matter how you feel about us, understands what the group actually did and what it means to modern music.

“There’s just not a good way to put it... Jeremy is no longer going to be in the band with us. To be honest, this has been really painful.”
Someone that’s not Hayley Williams left Paramore. Paramore is now a duo. Nobody cares. (Facebook)

W Magazine put together a new dramatic version of Drake’s “Hotline Bling”, featuring a host of actors. (Spoiler alert: Bryan Cranston and Amy Schumer win):

"Writing about Taylor Swift is a horrific ordeal for me because her twinkly persona is such a scary flashback to the fascist blondes who ruled the social scene during my youth."
Well, then maybe just don’t do it, Camille Paglia. It’s a horrific ordeal for us to hear you whine about it… (Hollywood Reporter)

“You live your life with the blinds drawn in every room you go into. And that's the part that kind of gets to me sometimes, is that every day – like right now, there's someone in TMZ trying to dig through my trash and figure out what I did wrong."

And finally, Happy Holidays, from Henry Rollins and Stephen Colbert:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
