Shades of Grey at Dominion in New York City | Billboard ::
“….the showcase brought out industry names and bloggers, but it was her very own team at Universal and Interscope that Grey was focusing on. “My team is amazing. I haven’t loved a team as much as I do now that I’ve had. I’ve gone through a lot of people, I’ve been in this industry a long time, I’ve had a different name. I really feel like this is the money team right now.”

This team includes the Senior Vice President at Universal Music Publishing Group Jennifer Blakeman who Grey called “amazing.” She adds Blakeman was, “Always supportive since I started. I signed with her back in 2004. Always super supportive, always loved my music.”

….and Interscope’s Dyana Kass. When Kass hears her name mentioned she playfully yells “Whatever she’s saying about me its all lies!” to which Grey yells back, “I’m saying your amazing!” Adding about Interscope as a whole “Interscope keeps them hard working, man. All those employees I’m so impressed with because they work as hard as me and that’s not easy to do.”

….someone who she sees as constantly evolving with their creativity is the leader of Nine Inch Nails. “Someone who’s a great example of someone evolving and always making great stuff is Trent Reznor. [He’s] now scoring film, amazingly well. He’s one of those people I look up to in that way. He’s always trying to be innovative and do his best. It’s not just because he’s Trent Reznor, he’s actually making great art.”….”
