Zach Galifianakis to Ke$ha: Your music is really bad

If you placed bets that a “Hangover III” is going to happen, odds appear to be in your favor. Not only has Warner Bros. launched into early talks with the writer of "Part II," but “Hangover” star Zach Galifianakis tells Rolling Stone that there’s indeed plenty of talk about a three-quel.

As speculated before, this movie would potentially drop the whole forgotten night scenario, and Galifianakis says the plot’s going to revolve around the Wolf Pack helping him escape from a mental hospital. “I’m getting fricking phone calls [about ‘Hangover III’] already,” he says in RS.

And it seems he’s taking those calls directly. According to Rolling Stone, the astronomical success of the “Hangover” franchise doesn’t mean Galifianakis has gone Hollywood: he’s still cruising around in his 1998 Subaru and staffs neither a publicist nor an assistant.

In fact, the comedian says he hasn’t taken well to his fame.

"I'm terrible about people wanting to take pictures with me," he says. “I'm a giant baby about it. They treat you like a cartoon. There's nothing you can do except make light of it. That's if I'm in the mood. Sometimes I get superbummed.”

Perhaps looking back on how far he’s come would lift his spirits; snippets from the 41-year-old actor’s resume could be a comedy reel of its own. There was the time that Nike reached out to him for a gig after “The Hangover” hit it big, but Galifianakis opened his conference call with the company by asking, “‘So, do you guys still have 7-year-olds making your stuff?’” And what do you know: He didn’t get the job.

A decade ago he was trying to create a “Saturday Night Live” sketch that would appease a then teenaged Britney Spears. He’d written something about the pop star being interviewed by “Entertainment Tonight” when, for no reason, her mouth starts bleeding. Spears didn’t appreciate his effort.

“I remember staring at the ground for, like, 20 seconds, just silent,” he says. “42,000 open mics, and I’m trying to impress an 18-year-old pop star.” His “SNL” career lasted for two weeks.

And while he's now in a much different place, Galifianakis still seems to have run-ins with teen pop singers. “I saw that Ke$ha woman the other day,” he says in his interview. "She was sitting by herself, and I walked up to her and said, ‘Listen, I got your e-mail. Your music is really bad! I don’t know who listens to it, but I imagine it’s, like, six-year-olds – and it’s a bad message.’"

Read the full interview with Zach Galifianakis when Rolling Stone hits newsstands on June 17.

    I just watched ZG 'Live at the Purple Onion" on Netflicks. What a waist of time! He showed up on stage hungover, but still managed to down at least 6 beers during the show. He spent a lot of time running his hands thru his sweaty hair and just sitting at the piano saying nothing. He also kept picking on an audience member – telling the guy he was going to ruin the DVD that was being recorded that night – I guess because the guy was older. Very mean & NOT FUNNY! Zach is a fat, drunk. I didn't even crack a smile during the entire video. Also,
    I felt like a idiot sitting in the theatre watching the Hangover & finally just walked out.

    Doesn't anyone find it funny that he would say that her music is awful and sends a bad message when they actually play "right round" by flo rida and ....wait for$ha during the credits of the Hangover while the pictures are showing from the camera they find at the end. I find it oddly ironic. But whatever Ke$ha is fun, it's pop music, don't take it so seriously. And every pop star uses auto some way or another.......

    Ke$ha is a musician, nothing more. I would say anyone that put their newly white-hot career on the line by rushing out "We R Wo We Are" is a worthy addition to the vapid, drunken stories "about last night." Oh wait, that describes both of the Hangover movies. Zach is an "A, dollar sign, dollar sign."

    I love Zach – it's refreshing that he still takes his own calls and actually talks to people. And his comedic talents are indisputable. Did anyone see him in Dinner for Schmucks ? Crappiest movie ever but the character he played almost made up for the 90 minutes wasted watching the rest of the movie. As for Ke$ha, the girl is making loads of money with her trashy style and trashier songs. I'm not personally a fan but it's not much different than what Britney Spears or Rhianna is doing. I just think it's cool that Zach G. tells everyone off regardless of money or fame.

    Zack is the man.. watch Time and Eric, watch live at the purple onion, watch Funny or Die. He is not about the fame.. I really think he likes anti-fame, and why not... he hates celebrity and all that it stands for.. I think that he is completely misunderstood.. some people get him and others are just idiots

    I think to both sides, if you don't like what that other person is doing, then just don't listen to or watch any of their work. You're both lucky to be doing what you're doing to make money, and if that makes you happy, then keep doing it no matter what others say, people are going to like you no matter what is said. Personally, I don't like Kesha's music but I just choose not to listen to it. I for one love Zach Galifinakis. I think he's one of the most funniest people on screen right now. The Hangovers are good, but you see him at his best in Funny or Die or Tim and Eric. You really see his type of humor and it's so entertaining because it's something that's so different and dark but it's hilarious. Anyways, that is all. Just telling you how it is.

I'm glad to see he hasn't become one of the "I'm more important than you" type of stars. Keep it up Zach. Oh and by the way, not only do I agree with you about the music of that girl with the stupid name but I want to go a bit farther and point out that her singing even stinks with auto tune.

    There is no such thing as bad music as long as someone likes it. I don't have a taste for opera, country or jazz, but I would never say to Maria Callis, Garth Brooks or Louis Armstrong that their music stinks. They all have large fan followings who love them. As for Ke$ha – I'm 57 and I love Ke$ha. My daughter and her friends like her too and we like to listen to her together. She's fun to listen to. That's all that counts.

    I can tell that Kei$ha is a poet from listening to her songs. She is talented, a great singer (don't care what anyone says), and a hot babe. I understand why she uses a "$" instead of "s" in her name, but I am not saying why. I'll let you figure that out on you own. Kei$ha, keep it up and think highly of yourself. Don't listen to the crap these idiots are posting about you. I love you and your music!!!

    I wonder what Ke$ha said back! She doesn't suck IMHO. He also ragged on January Jones, whom I'm not a fan of. Seems she was rude to him, but c'mon, didn't he do the same thing to Ke$ha?? And maybe the skit he wrote with Britney wasn't funny- mouth bleeding? No wonder she nixed him. Seems he does have a problem with women! Maybe he DOES have ashberger's like someone mentioned.

    OMFG could you imagine having to wake up to that voice day after day after day. I wanna drive off a cliff every time that high pitched nose whistling squeal comes on the radio. She is a turd of a Singer and zach's acting in his movies have mostly been the corn in the turd.

    Was he wrong to supposedly allegedly theoretically say that to her? No, freedom of speech happens even when it hurts your feelings. Was he wrong to brag about saying that to her? Probably only if he actually did say that to her.

    I think we are missing the bigger picture here. Doesn't anyone else find it really hard to believe that someone with his level of social awkwardness would actually go out of his way to have an abnormal "social interaction"?

    • Totally Agree

      I totally agree with you. They are all haters. Whether it be Ke$ha or anyone else making it big, you will always have someone with something negative to say. Why doesn't everyone learn to lift each other up instead of tearing everyone down? Zach included, b/c I remember Ke$ha saying in an interview that she thought he was hot & for him to reply to her in that way is just disgusting as he is.

    • Keshas Music

      Umm... What? I am Kesha's Music, and I even know I am unoriginal. I don't think Kesha (again, I refuse to spell it with a ridiculous symbol instead of an S) thinks her creations are original. And to chastise that nice young man about making movies about getting blacked out drunk is literally, the pot calling the kettle black given Kesha claims in her first single that she wakes up in the morning and brushes her teeth with a bottle of Jack. So if we are talking about being a hypocrite (which by the way, we now are), you would be considered one. BOO YAH – I'll see you all at the Pre-Teen Awards – I'm out (hopefully for good)!

      THANK YOU!!! I mean if it was you he was talking to you would be as mad as Ke$ha is. So if you think that their both bad influences then that's your decision to make not mine and I can't control that. But for the people who are trashing both of them and you haven't even heard or seen them then you need to give them a chance BEFORE you judge them i know i have not seen Hangover II yet but i plan to. And i happen to kinda like Ke$ha. No I am not taking sides but i needed to say this for what I am seeing... SMH

    • Keshas Music

      Hi all, I'm Kesha's Music. If you notice, I don't spell my name with a dollar sign in it like my creator because I even think that's lame. I also think that my existence is lame, degrading to anyone that thinks music is a form of artistic expression, and by the way, I am not even made using real instruments (kind of a fundamental in music wouldn't you say). So yes, I wake up in the morning and brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack, but truthfully, it's not the Jack that you all think of in that mockery of a song. So I guess what I'm getting at, is I suck, my behemoth creator sucks, and all of those that think the music isn't a two cent rip off of every other ridiculous pop song sucks too! Cudos Zach for pointing out my creators suckydom!

    I really appreciate his talent. His comedy is all about his social awkwardness and, come on, he says what all of us sensible adults are thinking (Kesha's is in fact bad music and no one with actual taste likes it), but are too "polite" to just say, just like that. He is simple and he is funny. Plus, he was pretty good in It's Kind of a Funny Story, which was completely different from his Hangover and Due Date sort of characters.

    He was hilarious in Hangover and I even liked him in that movie Snow Patrol (I think that's its name). I have nothing against the guy, but reading these comments I realized that he's what a real life Peter Griffin from Family Guy would be like. And I'm cool with that.

    And as for him criticizing Kesha's message, if he really did say that, I'm pretty sure the difference would be that he believes her music is truly directed at 6 years olds (or underaged children at least), whereas his Hangover movies are directed toward teenagers and young adults. I have no personal opinion of Kesha's music because I've never heard any of it.

      You need to hire an agent, since you have no filter. It's not ok to take your own calls and insult the people that are trying to hire you, and the more work you get now, the sooner you can retire, since you are not comfortable being famous. Remember famous guys get laid all the time, so there are some advantages.
      You are very funny, so write some movie scripts, a book and keep your mouth shut for now. I'm sure HBO or Showtime will contact you soon about your own comedy special, so stop using your material for free.

      Though I understand that people dislike her music because it is sleazy in nature, I don't see why so many people call her stupid and say that the songs are bad. There's worse stuff out there....much worse...and further, everyone's taste in music varies. I can't stand Lady Gaga but I'm not going around calling her dumb and saying her music sucks as if it's a fact. After all, it's my opinion and opinion isn't truth. Calm down, people.
