Scooter Braun on his fave execs

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “[The major labels are] built on a structure that's still based on a failing business. Doug Morris is a legend and what he did was incredible, and I think there's some great new leadership with Lucian Grainge, but he has a tough job ahead of him. You see the moves that Lyor [Cohen] is making, and he's very capable. Barry Weiss is a brilliant guy who doesn't like to lose either. There's some good leadership out there, and I think they're heading in the right direction.” —Scooter Braun, manager of Justin Bieber, answering the question, “What do you think is the biggest problem plaguing the music business right now?” from Shirley Halperin’s interview in The Hollywood Reporter.
