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.
