When asked about unreleased Nine Inch Nails material, Reznor took the opportunity to lay into his contemporaries.
“I’m not Prince or Rivers Cuomo, who brags about having hundreds of great songs,” he said. “And to that I would say: Prince, if you have a hundred great songs or a thousand, how about picking a few and putting them on your record that you’ve put out? Because your last several have sucked. Same for you, Rivers.”
After pausing, Reznor continued on the theme, making reference to his recent engagement, which he announced earlier this week.
“I say that constructively, you know,” he added. “I may be happy and engaged, but I can still be a prick!”
