Maya, even if it's done well, don't you think promoting music at the same time as Dunkirk, will leave audiences with the impression that this was a one-off from him and that he's not serious about acting and pursuing other acting roles?

Absolutely not!! You have to understand that the general audience doesn’t indulge in continuous, detailed considerations about the celebritites they happen to see on their magazines, on their screens or hear on the radio! When you try to put yourself in the GA’s shoes, you must consider what their gut reactions to your client’s exposure might be. Are you showing the right angle? Was that interview crafted in the right way? What if you had chosen a different word to send a slightly differnt message? Was it ok to have them attend that event in those clothes? Are you pushing them too much? Are people gonna get tired of them? Nobody is going to stop the engine while Harry’s song passes on the radio and go “Hey, I also saw this guy at the movies yesterday! Wait, does he sing, too? Maybe he doens’t take his acting career that seriosuly!”. Maybe some critics may make a few vile comments about it. But if Harry’s job as an actor ends up being collectively praised and his album  proves to be an high quality product, than he’s going to be fine. 

Harry has like, mostly disappeared for longer than a year. A well balanced void has been created around his persona. I count on them being able to fill it with the right amount of insistence and sharpness, as they have some time at hand before it starts being too much. If well handled, this is going to be good, in my opinion :)

Our understanding of human nature directly influences what we expect of people. If humans are naturally selfish and competitive, we cannot expect to live in a cooperative society. When we see how differently other cultures have characterized human nature, we can recognize human nature as a cultural value, an idealized and normative mythology that justifies the way a society is organized. Western civilization devotes an immense amount of resources to social control, policing, and cultural production reinforcing capitalist values. The Western idea of human nature functions as a part of this social control, discouraging rebellion against authority. We are taught from childhood that without authority human life would descend into chaos.
