In a recent interview, Eminem discussed his fellow rappers, crowning Lil Wayne one of the best rappers alive. "I've always respected what Wayne does, and Wayne, to me, is definitely one of the greatest in the game right now." Nice. [MTV]

You think you know Diddy, but you have no idea. "People have this perception of me-which is my fault-of maybe a rapper or champagne-sipping and Hamptons and white fur and just cliché type of things that are just kind of old and dated and corny, which isn't how I am today, you know?" Dids told the L.A. Times. "That was just part of my image for a second. It wasn't who Sean is. You evolve-like, I need to retire my diamond necklace and fur jacket now." Never that. Also, pretty sure that was your image for like, a decade, but whatever helps you sleep at night, Sean. [LAT]

In a radio interview, Lady Gaga admitted to reading what people on YouTube (seriously) write about her, and also not knowing Depeche Mode until just a second ago. "I spend literally hours on YouTube each day checking what people post about me, reading the comments and so on. And I was so surprised that many Depeche Mode fans appeared to be Lady Gaga fans. I didn't know the band existed until I saw a mash-up of 'Paparazzi' with 'Just Can't Get Enough'. I advise everyone to check out Depeche Mode, they are so underrated." Seriously? Were you just blowing lines and looking weird for the entire 80's/early 90's? Did The Cure pass you by, too? Woulda totally pegged you for a hardcore Flock of Seagulls fan, while we're talking.
