"I started to write a musical a few years ago and I'm going to get back into writing it. But I'm not going to say what it's about though."
Umm, she probably isn't saying anything about it because she has no idea what it is about. The idea to say something probably occurred to her during the interview when she realized she had nothing of any great importance to say, and that no one really cares what she has to say. Knowing that she doesn't even know how to microwave popcorn she couldn't go the whole cooking route and so decided to go out so far on the ledge of disbelief that entire countries took time out from their financial problems to take a moment to laugh. I believe this is the same Kirsten Dunst who once said she didn't play an instrument, didn't really know anything about music and certainly doesn't know how to read music.
It is going to be pretty tough for someone to read her music when it says things like, "hmm, hum,..boom, bam" in a bouncy beat. "Give me a C, a bouncy C." Man I miss Phil Hartman. Anyway, she probably did go see a musical when she was 12 and decided she could write one and so wanted to go ahead and throw that out there so the world would think she has some kind of skill other than Spiderman's girlfriend. What I think every interviewer of Kirsten should do from now on is always ask her how that musical is coming. Every time she walks a red carpet ask her how much longer it will be. Just really make her put up or shut up.
See, I wish Ellen had done that with Paris Hilton. She let Paris just get away with saying she makes these large amazing meals, but I don't think she asked any followup questions like what she cooks, or what temperatures she cooks them at, or what she cooks best. I know talk shows depend on celebrities for ratings, but would it kill someone to ask a followup question? Just one. Maybe then, they would actually think before opening their mouth.
