The way this musician dealt with a scrounging influencer is a thing of beauty
This self-described influencer’s attempt to get free music for their wedding didn’t go down like they’d hoped. Singer-songwriter Jamie Mathias – @JamieMathias – shared what happened.
Quite simply a masterclass in handling entitled scroungers.
Reddit users had some thoughts on the choosing beggar and Jamie’s expert handling of the request.
When he said “if you’re free”, he wasn’t talking about availability lol.
I’m sure they’re paying their caterer via Instagram shoutouts as well.
Dude nailed it at the end.
Why would someone want to give away their services to a tightass for free in order to advertise the fact that they do free work to a hundred other tightasses?
No one good will do it for free so they’ll have a very mediocre wedding.
The occasional benefit fundraiser gig? Sure, I love doing those. A destination wedding for a couple of self-important narcissists and their closest associates? Get fucked.
They should have created a cryptocurrency called “exposure”.
When Jamie shared the story on Twitter, it got people’s hackles up there, too.
2 big influencers want me at their wedding next summer. Take a wild guess how they want to pay me 😂😂😂
Influencer culture can get in the 🗑

"what we charge for promo is worth more than any track" lmao they have it so backwards
I've decided I now charge $1 million per promo post. now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to haggle for a free lamborghini. I'll do a promo post in exchange, practically a steal! for them, ofc https://t.co/eesPSWYvgY

Back on Reddit, someone named u/Dirk99Pitt coined a brand new – and pretty topical – word in honour of the occasion.
Influenceza – a disease brought on by delusional self importance infecting narcissistic no-talent idiots who say “bro” quite often.
