Owen Wilson is My New Lover
This picture is from an incredibly awesome movie, Royal Tenenbaums, with Owen Wilson. I didnt want to support You, Me & Dupree, cause it looks really stupid.
But now, Steely Dan's is all mad, cause they think the movie (You, Me & Dupree, not Royal Tenenbaums) is based on a song they had (Cousin Dupree) about an annoying houseguest. You know what matters? Whether a movie has the same name as a person in your song.
Quoted from USA Today, "There are some pretty heavy people who are upset about this whole thing and we can't guarantee what kind of heat little Owen may be bringing down on himself," band leaders Walter Becker and Donald Fagen wrote in the letter.
In a statement released by his spokeswoman, Ina Treciokas, Wilson said: "I have never heard the song 'Cousin Dupree' and I don't even know who this gentleman, Mr. Steely Dan, is. I hope this helps to clear things up and I can get back to concentrating on my new movie, HEY 19. "
This is the awesomest response he could have possibly said. They deserve any mockery they get for actually saying to someone with a microphone that they could generate any kind of "heat" from their awesome influence of power and fanbase. And Hey 19 is another one of Steely Dan's songs. Is it lame to explain that?
