Taylor Swift performing at the VMAs
Well, Taylor (Swift) is a great partner from day 1. So, she’s very up and aware and smart about business. And those conversations it happened a lot in the early days. We have things on such a good track right now that there’s not very many business things that we have to address currently. But when a movie deal comes up or soundtrack or something outside of what we are doing on a daily basis come up. You know there’s tough decisions that have to be made. Every once in a while I have to be the bad label guy and sometimes to protect her. I’d much rather they take shots at us than her. But you have to protect that, it’s a great problem to have but everybody wants to sing with her, everybody wants her on their records. And occasionally I’m the one who has to stand up and say “I’m sorry we can’t do that because of our own strategies and plans that we have coming up”"
Scott Borchetta Q: There’s always this pressure between creative aspect and the business aspect of music. And I’m just wondering in Taylor’s situation at Big Machine does she help or contribute to making executive or business decisions as well as creative decisions? (2012) x (via thanksforsayingthat)
there is a difference between people who are smart and people who get good grades
