AOL: On your last album, 'Pork and Beans,' you sang about wanting to work with Timbaland because he can give you the hits, but instead you collaborated with Jermaine Dupri for 'Raditude.' Why?
Rivers: I wrote two songs with Jermaine Dupri. Yeah, it's true on 'Pork and Beans' from last year's album I was singing, "Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the chart; maybe if I work with him I can perfect the art." He's amazing. I'd love to work with him. He's a super expensive record producer. I don't know if Weezer can afford it right now. Anyway, I'd love to work it out if we can. Jermaine Dupri is a little more approachable -- a little more down to earth, I guess. We just hit it off and wrote this song together, 'Can't Stop Partying,' and we also wrote another song called 'Let It All Hang Out'. He was just real fun to hang out with in the studio. Everything he says is cool. Like when it's time for him to go, he said, "Alright guys, I'm gonna slide." I just thought like, "Whoa. That's a cool way to say 'I'm gonna go.'"
