Temptation is as old as time; or at least, the history of temptation extends as far back as the moment Eve gave Adam that serpent‘s apple.

I’m not surprised ‘The Avengers‘ has such enduring popularity, because it was a groundbreaking series that changed television.

Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, all of these artists that we do love – you see so much of what we do, the personas, makeup, hair, fashion – like, all of is now incorporated in pop culture, and a lot of it has to do with drag, because we over-exaggerate everything, right?

I think the poetry that came out of Belfast, and especially the Queen’s University set, in the 1970s and ’80s – you know, Paul Muldoon and Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon and Ciaran Carson – that was probably the finest body of work since the Gaelic renaissance, up there with the work of Yeats and Synge and Lady Gregory.

She was green when green wasn’t in. From sea to shining sea, Lady Bird Johnson has left her legacy in a more beautiful America. From millions of trees and wildflowers planted, to interstates free from billboards and replaced with green.
I have a lady, she’s a great lady. I love her a lot, she loves me. We’re on the same page. Whenever that day happens when we’re not on the same page we’ll move forward with it.

I think I’m very proud of the ‘Lady Marmalade’ collaboration that I did with Christina, Lil Kim, Pink, and Missy. That was the first time and probably one of the only times that I’ve worked with so many females at once, and we were able to accomplish so many great things.

If you go back to the ’80s, you had a whole plethora of artists, everyone from Madonna and Cyndi Lauper to Prince. God bless Lady Gaga for doing her thing, but she’s kind of a lone peacock now.

I can see how far I’ve come.

I was raised by a lady that was crippled all her life but she did everything for me and she raised me. She washed our clothes, cooked our food, she did everything for us.

Reba is very, very close to everyone around her. She’s a classy lady.
Starting at age 10, my personality and my identity all stemmed from employment. I had a set to be at. I was a certain way with the cameraman, a certain way with the makeup lady – a normal, routine environment.

I like to think of myself as the people’s pop star a little bit. I respect Lady Gaga so much, and I love what she does, but she has this kind of mysterious, out-of-reach thing. I’m just not that – as much as I’d love to have that sort of mystique, I think I’m kind of an open book.

Give the lady what she wants!
I’ve created, directed and choreographed for Lady Gaga since the beginning, so ‘Born This Way,’ this was musically such an amazing evolution and such a brilliant record. So when she played it for me, it took me a while to find out the visual interpretation that I could give back to her.

Women are usually only interesting to studio executives when they are fecund, between the ages of 15 and 30. I decided to get through the really tough patch, around 50, by just cutting my price and playing ten years older. I didn’t want to have to wait until I was an old lady to play one.
I’ve known Lisa Lampanelli for quite some time. We did the Shatner roast together. Lisa didn’t know Shatner, but she’s a popular roaster, so she was invited to do it, and she is fantastic.

I am here to play women’s tennis. I’m a lady. Predominantly, most of the time I always like to play ladies.

If you’re walking with your lady on the sidewalk, I still like to see a man walking street-side, to protect the lady from traffic. I grew up with that, and I hate to see something like that get lost.

Over the years, I was lucky; right from the beginning, I studied with a lady who had a lot of… she was a classical singer, and of course, they’re a little bit more into, you know, preserving the voice, making sure your instrument is ready to perform.
I’m friends with Dierks Bentley. Aside from that, I don’t really know anybody else in the country music field, really. I’ve met the Lady Antebellum people and I met Marty Stuart briefly once. He’s really nice, but I don’t know any of them, really.
I’ve always wanted to play ‘Lady Macbeth’ and Strindberg’s ‘Miss Julie‘.
I just don’t like to be called a ‘woman’ or a ‘lady’ because I don’t feel like either a woman or a lady. I feel like a musician.
I see the first lady as another means to keep a president from becoming isolated.
In my job, I am portrayed as a misfit, a grandiose high fashion lady or an unearthly creature. At home, it’s important I can look in the mirror, strip away the disguise and be comfortable with who stares back.
The attractive lady whom I had only recently been introduced to dropped into my lap… I chose not to dump her off.
I play a nice crazy lady whose morals are right but who is really foundering.
You want your lady to be a contortionist. What man wouldn’t want a lady who’s a contortionist?
I’m a character actress. It doesn’t mean I can’t do leading roles; I don’t think of myself as a leading lady.
Sometimes in a restaurant you’ll see a lady dressed very nice, she picks up a menu or something… a little fan is always a little bit nice.
When my father died, my mother came back from being Mrs. Birkin to being Judy Campbell. She was a stunning actress. She came out of her shell. She was herself again: this very independent, funny, intellectual lady – and was able to perform again, which was her life before meeting my father squashed it out.
The First Lady has a lot of power. I hope Hillary Clinton realizes that.
I’m an honorary old Jewish lady of the West Village.
If you see a biker chick hanging out with a group of bikers and associated with them, stay away. You’ll know right away if a biker chick is free; if she’s with someone, she’s right by his side. Getting with somebody’s old lady is a big no-no. That’s more serious than anything in that world.
I bought two sculptures of two baboons called Lord and Lady Muck on an antique piece of furniture from an art exhibition, and it was quite expensive. It was very expensive, actually – way too expensive.
I like powerful women, and I gravitate to any point in history when a female has significant power. I can spend hours researching any such amazing lady, from Ching Shih to Hatshepsut to Boudica to Zenobia.
I feel like an old lady; my hero is Miss Marple.
I didn’t hang around films. I don’t know if I’d ever seen Hitchcock‘s The Lady Vanishes.
The secret to The Temptations is the music: simple music about a man loving a woman. We talk about the lady when we need her, when we want her to be there; we talk about ain’t too proud to beg. It’s simple, you know? You can’t go wrong.
I’ve had all that you could ask for. The fat lady has sung, and there’s a standing ovation.
I worked with Lady Gaga for a day on a video shoot. It was crazy; we had a lot of fun. I had a great time.
I’m a true woman, not a Bond girl. That’s why I say all the time, ‘James Bond lady,’ ‘James Bond woman.’
I was supposed to be a romancer, either wooing the leading lady or competing with the leading man for her.
I can tell you beyond any doubt, that my lady is able to control herself and stick to her values regardless of circumstance. Just as surely, she can say the same about me (Ben & Jerry‘s benders notwithstanding).
My mother taught us to play baseball, to bake a cake, to play fair – she beat the living daylights out of us sometimes, and she loved us with all her heart; she taught her favorite poets, and there is no child care in the world that will ever be a substitute for what that lady was in our life.
I have so much more to go through as a young lady. But oh my God. I feel like I can do anything.
If Lady Gaga is like an orange Bugatti Veyron, then I am like a black 1970 Chevelle.
I truly admire President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Lady Limelight is a jealous lady. She wants all of your attention. You don’t have any time to think of anything else but Lady Limelight, because pretty soon that light will be shinning on somebody else. So you better do it while you can.
Pure entertainment is not an egotistical lady singing boring songs onstage for two hours and people in tuxes clapping whether they like it or not. It’s the real performers on the street who can hold people’s attention and keep them from walking away.
Looking into Linda‘s eyes when she walks down the aisle, and knowing that’s the lady I’m going to be with for the rest of my life. I’m going to be crying like a fool. But I knew from the moment I met her that she was the one for me.
Some of my favorite films are musicals, like ‘Walk the Line,’ ‘The Rose’ and ‘Lady Sings the Blues.’ I just love the way the music and the story fuel each other.
If you’re a woman doing classic theater, the big roles are often destroyers. I’ve played Hedda Gabler, Lady Macbeth, some of the Chekhovian heroines, Electra, Phaedra – they’re all powerful women, but they’re forces of negativity.
Any lady who is first lady likes being first lady. I don’t care what they say, they like it.

As social secretary, I was responsible for putting together all the events that the President and the First Lady host.
I have never been an easy fit. I’m a leading lady character actor; I don’t fit in one slot simply.
That’s my opportunity to hide behind that old lady and say what I want to say.
