Silly Industry Quote of the Day

Here’s your silly industry quote for the day from Greg Thompson, EVP of Capitol, talking about trying to match the commercial success of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream with her follow-up record, Prism (via Billboard):

“We didn’t think that we could repeat Teenage Dream, but that’s like saying, ‘I’m gonna go paint another Picasso.'”

Yeah, no, it really isn’t. I don’t think he’s actually equating the two in terms of artistic merit (at least I hope he’s not), but really? That’s the comparison he thought would be best to go with? Silly Greg Thompson.
