True colours certainly have been exposed today, on what should be a celebration for Johnson’s birthday.
Not only was an article published about PFA in a Vegas magazine (or newspaper, I’m not sure on that) that, at first glance is promoting the new band. When I read it closer, there is little to no band or music promotion. Instead, it is an undisguised finger point at Jackson. According to whomever write the article, he is now dead to the band. These are people who have been friends for at least 15 years, who at the moment, are going through some serious tough times. I don’t condone digs at others in public forums, but I understand hurt makes people say things they normally wouldn’t say in public.
Having said this, I don’t believe either of the Bens would have said anything like this, but I do believe their “manager” would. As it is not a direct quote, no one can prove or disprove who said it and in what context.
Then… The above photo. There are FB groups and Twitter accounts that spread hatred toward’s Jackson’s pregnant girlfriend. Some if it disgusting and frankly, scary as hell. I understand people are shocked at the speed of how their relationship has progressed, but that is NO ONE’S business but theirs. It all smacks of pure and unadulterated jealousy. If you truly ‘love’ him as much as you claim (which I highly doubt as you don’t KNOW him regardless of how many meet and greets you have had), you would simply want him to be happy. And, to me, he looks very happy.
So, having said that, why would the manager of PFA follow a twitter account that is aimed at spreading hate about a pregnant woman who has kept herself to herself? On her PUBLIC account on which she ‘promotes’ the band she works for?
I held my tongue (a bit) about her lack of professionalism when she posted the post on the official 100 Monkeys website clearly naming Jackson as the reason behind everything, but this has taken it too far!
For someone who claims to have been in the business for as long as she does, professionalism should be as natural as breathing, yet again and again, she defies all logic known to man.
The day of the band she manages 2nd show, was she busting her ass getting the word out? No, she was at a BBQ with friends.
She controls the band twitter and only RT positivity (which is fine, all
Bands need to hear good things about their art), but she ignores legitimate questions about singles, show details etc… How are the fans able to promote the band (as requested) if they don’t have all the details?
I love the Bens, and Mat and Rob are really growing on me through their interaction with fans in twitter and FB, but if they don’t begin to see the damage she is doing to them and their reputation, they will be dragged down with her when karma finally catches up with her.
I understand a lot of people like her, but this public support of bullies should show her in a new light. Yes, there are a lot of monkey fans who don’t like the fact that Jackson appears to be the bad guy in this whole situation, but none of us know the full story. Until he, Jerad, the Bens or uncle make any kind of official statement, none of us will. They are not required to, regardless of what some fans believe. We do not NEED to know the whole story, even though we all admit that we want to, we just need to know that all parties are being represented in the right way. So far, 2/5 are not.
