(Demi Lovato speaks to PEOPLE Magazine about Cory’s sudden death) "All it takes is one moment of vulnerability to get slipped into your addiction. He didn’t choose to die. It was the disease. It can creep up on you at any moment. It only takes one moment of relapse to potentially die. It’s really scary, but I’m really hoping that from this, people are able to see this is a very, very, very dangerous disease.”
"I can never know what Fitzgerald would think of what we’ve done with the film. But what I’ve done, I hope in a way, is to help the audience get a feeling of what jazz might have felt like in the 20s… Dangerous. Intoxicating. Thrilling.”- Baz Luhrmann [Director of Film + Soundtrack for The Great Gatsby (2013)]
"It’s so fucking ridiculous. At the moment in the U.S. they’re having trouble getting it on music channels because they say it’s homoerotic. And I’m like how rude and how ridiculous is that when girls, we put up with scantily-clad women grinding [in videos] and no one says, "This is totally lesbian and we can’t have it on TV!" So I just don’t see the problem. I think it’s a complete double standard and it’s ridiculous."
Smart listens to the head, stupid listens to the heart. Be stupid.
