It was revealed that Bellamy believes that "Gaia" fancies Wolstenholme more than himself. Bellamy indicated that he wished to prepare some "gags" for speech during live performances.

According to Howard they "definitely" moved copies of Showbiz to the front of the shelves when it initially went on sale.

Bellamy pointed out that Howard's "faff bag" has gotten "bigger" over time. "Dom's faff bag keeps getting bigger and bigger".

Bellamy commented "It's all about the hair" when discussing Wolfmother.

Bellamy further elaborated on his "Jet Pack" clarifying that it isn't really a jet pack. He also said that it was an alternative career plan catering for the possibility of the band not doing well, as they didn't know how well the band was going to do at that point. Bellamy was purportedly offered £500 to fly over a football match and film it, as the football club needed airborne footage. Bellamy didn't take up the offer as the band had started to do sufficiently well by that point.

Colin Murray revealed that Bellamy is a poker player, and that he believes he's good. He has played with "a few pros". Murray brought this up due to seeing Bellamy play poker at the same casino as he himself plays at.

Bellamy presented a modest view of his piano playing abilities.

Murray asked Bellamy what the first three sites should go to when using the internet:
Howard interrupted with Google "obviously".

Bellamy would "probably" vote for the Green Party

Bellamy stated that he believes Invincible is the "heart" of Black Holes and Revelations.
