Snoop DoggWhen I heard the royal family wanted to have me perform in celebration of Prince William's marriage, I knew I had to give them a little something. 'Wet' is the perfect anthem for Prince William or any playa to get the club smokin'.
Jimmy PageListening to John Bonham is just a sheer celebration of his playing - it can't help but fill you with so much joy.

Jimmy PageI play like I play. You hear it on 'Celebration Day.' It's pretty good for a one-night shot.

Barbara EhrenreichWe - we spend a lot of time, scholarly time, thinking about love and sex, but very little about the - the kind of joy that can take over a crowd of people or a group of people, in festivity, in ecstatic ritual of some kind, in celebration.
Malala YousafzaiI was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son, while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain, their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to children.
