One of my favourite quotes this year was from Damon Albarn discussing why Gorillaz will never appear on Glee:
"It's a homogenization of everything and it ultimately will lead to emptiness."
His point being that young musicians should avoid writing for TV shows and write their own material since covering songs will not allow you to form your own identity and may make you beholden to TV producers.
The discussion was with Jian Ghomeshi while appearing on Q:
A lot of the extended interview talks about their creative process, loosely about celebrity, and what it means for Gorillaz to be successful.
