Do you listen to classical music/Piano/Instrumental? If yes can you suggest me some?🤍

classical music is my whole life. my highest highs, my lowest lows, everything in-between. a few of my favorites, categorized by mood:

music that wrecks me:

music that brings me back:

music that makes me yearn:

music that feels like a dark fairy-tale:

music that reminds me of dusty practice rooms, quiet cobblestone streets after the opera, and resonant cathedral bells:

some devastatingly beautiful soundtracks and instrumental pieces:

and some vocal shout-outs:

I’m your anon from yesterday who said everyone at Team Cait is an idiot. After reading the additional information about how Cait went to this journalist after the fact, I stand by that. I don’t understand how they don’t see how this looks. I really, really don’t.

Oh hi! 👋. I know, right? I just….I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ I want to say it’s all for the new fans coming in so when they Google they see that she’s married to NotSam. Or that it’s for any of the other reasons they want the real deal hidden that we already suspect. But why not leave it at that then? Why not say she’s married, leave him in the background and get on with it? Let the fans think what they want 🤷‍♀️ Who cares? (Well, that’s hypothetical because someone obviously does care. A lot) What do you want to bet that the more they push the maestro/artist manager the more people are Googling him as well as her and realizing that he’s not what they say? Well sorry team, but “…he manages bands. He’s in artist management “ is only digging the hole deeper.

Just out of curiosity, what %of an actor’s income goes to a Talent Co. I was just thinking about all the expenses, taxes etc. that an actor would have to pay It must be quite complicated especially if you are working in different countries and states, just the tax payments alone would be complicated

There are probably articles that you can google about the splits. I think managers get around 10%, agents even more since they book the paying jobs. Publicists get either a monthly retainer or are hired by the project. A very quick search found an article from 2012 that estimated the best publicists who rep A listers could get $4500 a month.

Usually their stylists are covered by their network or studio for promo appearances. I don’t know about UK law but in the US they could write off the cost of any work related wardrobe for special events. There’s a famous story about a judge giving Stevie Nicks a hard time for writing off her wardrobe back in the Fleeteood Mac heyday and she made a comment about she would never wear that crap on her own!

Personal assistants work grinding hours and don’t get paid enough for new shoes.

Taxes are another story. I have a friend who just took a job with the UK office of her company and she had to watch a training video of how to handle taxes. She said it was very confusing so she talked to others in the same boat. Sam and Csit are in reverse of that but I would imagine it’s just as complicated.

While I was searching, I found this article from last month about Jennifer Allen. I’m sure somebody posted it at the time, but here it is for those who hadn’t seen it.

Power Publicists Jennifer Allen and Melissa Kates on Lessons Learned and How to Spin a Scandal in 2020

What would be the point of staging that Q+A? To re-enforce the narrative with a different angle? Were they/are they getting push back from “real” journalists re: Maestro’s CV? And TPTB are getting a little nervous?

Any or all of the above. Guess he doesn’t like to be called Maestro. I don’t think journalists care enough to research him. She’s not that famous and he isn’t that interesting.

It’s their own fault, her team fed articles to People and EW calling him that and she retweeted some others Maybe they thought it gave him more gravitas.

And if anyone still doesn’t think they (and likely he) don’t follow what we say then you’re not paying attention.

Why are ppl so judgmental about him working for her? That’s probably a perk when you see a celeb that travels a lot. If not it would be a lot of long distance

No one is judging the position of PA or business manager. It’s just really awkward when he’s been touted as a music producer, maestro, and other illustrious career positions for years and she’s retweeted articles about it and has never corrected any journalists or media about it. In the exclusive announcement of her wedding he was called a music producer. Until a fan enthusiastically gushes about it and tries to connect with her about her loved one’s career. Oh then she abruptly corrects the fan. She tells her he “really hates this.”

I was a band manager once. You don’t want to have a deep personal relationship with them when mix ups and schedule challenges happen either due to them or others. It’s stressful and not fun having to cancel an exclusive event you booked them at because they don’t feel like going. After all that hard work and pulling strings, it’s not fun. Or when a venue they had planned for and spent a lot of money preparing for changes things and you have to break the news to the band. Not fun. You take a lot of shit from all angles for them but it’s your job so it’s not personal.

He looks like a PA, acts like he manages her, but she has never said he does. So no one is making fun of him working for her, they are laughing with incredulity at her fake public narrative. Now she says he’s a band/artist manager- not her manager or PA
