omy.sg : 薪水太低?林翠芳、蔡佩璇、王建复不续约!

继彭耀顺和刘芷绚之后,新传媒再传出林翠芳、蔡佩璇与王建复三艺人不续约的消息,说三人离开主要是为薪水被减得厉害。今年才过了一季,已有多达五人不续约,是近年来罕见的现象。

新传媒年度红星大奖颁奖礼主秀明晚举行,不过电视台却传来艺人相继因薪水太低不续约的消息。在这个月内不续约离开的艺人包括等待上位的蔡佩璇、林翠芳,以及一段时间没在荧幕出现的王建复。加上先前公布不续约的彭耀顺和刘芷绚,今年才过了一季,已有多达五人不续约,是近年来罕见的现象。

《联合早报》根据消息,蔡佩璇、林翠芳与王建复离开,都是因为薪水被减得很厉害,让艺人“不知如何维持生活”。蔡佩璇、林翠芳两人都属于新生代艺人,近年表现都有亮眼的一面,本来被看好更受重用,却都遭到减薪,难免圈内人议论纷纷。

非力捧新生代艺人月减不如助理?

一名圈内人透露,新生代艺人如非受高层力捧,在谈新合约时,月薪甚至减到比一些当红艺人身边的助理还不如。据了解,有些当红艺人聘请私人助理,月薪也超过2000元,因此圈内人纷纷议论,新生代艺人月薪过低,没有广告代言额外补贴,却要维持一定的艺人形象,包括支付服装、美发美容、德士代步或养车的交通费等开销,试问如何生活,更别说存款了。受访圈内人说,艺人看不到明天,只能打算怎么度过今天,这样的薪水很难熬过去。

房屋津贴被取消

另一名艺人透露,来自马来西亚的蔡佩璇,原本获得新传媒提供房屋津贴,可是在谈新合约时,这笔津贴被取消,薪水被减,自然无法续约。另一方面,她在逗留本地拍摄新剧时,不是每天都忙,马来西亚方面曾有人找她拍戏,她向新传媒请假回马,却被拒绝,最后到了眼前的钞票就这样飞掉了。

据了解,蔡佩璇的合约到月底才结束,她也入围今年“红星大奖20大最受欢迎女艺人”,明晚也有机会上台领奖,这是很特殊的例子。

彭耀顺和刘芷绚在更早之前透露去意,两人都在月底约满,彭耀顺将设立自己的剧团,投入新的艺术领域,刘芷绚则可能回马来西亚经营自己的spa生意。据了解,他们的离开与薪水没有关系。

      After Peng Yao Shun and Jesseca Liu, news have come from Mediacorp that another 3 artistes, Charlyn Lim, Cai Pei Xuan and Wang Jian Fu have decided not to renew their contract, their main reason being the drastic pay cut. Just over a season this year, there are already five artistes who have decided not to renew their contracts, a scene that is uncommon these years.

      Mediacorp’s annual Star Awards’ main awards ceremony would be held tomorrow night, but the TV station had news about artistes quitting due to pay cut. In this month, artistes that have not renewed their contracts and are living include the up-and-coming Cai Pei Xuan, Charlyn Lim, and Wang Jian Fu who has not been onscreen for some time. Adding to this list would be Peng Yao Shun and Jesseca Liu, who have announced their departure earlier on.

      According to news, the departure of Cai Pei Xuan, Charlyn Lim and Wang Jian Fu is because of a drastic cut in their salaries, causing them to wonder if they can keep up with life. Cai Pei Xuan and Charlyn Lim are both considered the new generation of artistes, and they have performances these years that are commendable. They were initially thought to be better used, but unfortunately, they received a pay cut instead, causing people from the same industry to have a lot of discussion on this matter.
      Someone from the same industry revealed, if the new generation of artistes are not amongst the higher ranked, when discussing the new contract, their monthly salary can be cut to an extent of it being lower than what the popular artistes’ assistants are paid. According to understanding, some currently popular artistes have appointed assistants, and their monthly salary can exceed 2000 dollars. That led to many discussions among people from the same industry, as if the new generation of artistes have to drastic a pay cut, and without the extra money earned from endorsements, keeping up and artiste’s image would become a problem for them, as it would not even be enough to spend, much less to save. Interviewed people from the entertainment industry said, if artistes can’t foresee tomorrow, they can only plan how to live today, and the low salary paid makes life hard to go by.

      Another artiste reviewed, Malaysian Cai Pei Xuan initially had a allowance given by Mediacorp for her housing purposes, but when they discussed the new contract, this allowance was taken away, and her pay was cut, therefore it is only natural that she decided not to renew the contract. Moreover, when she stayed in Singapore to film new dramas, she does not have work everyday, and there were people from Malaysia who wanted her to film shows in Malaysia. However, when she sought to take leave to return to Malaysia, it was rejected, and the cash she could have earned was gone with it.
      Based on understanding, Cai Pei Xuan’s contract would only end at the end of this month, and she has also been nominated for the Star Awards Top 20 Most Popular Female Artistes, therefore having a chance to receive a prize onstage, a very extraordinary example.

      Peng Yao Shun and Jesseca Liu have announced their departure much earlier, and both contracts would end at the end of this month. Peng Yao Shun would make up his own troupe and enter a new arts arena, while Jesseca may return to Malaysia to manage her spa business. Their departure from Mediacorp, according to our understanding, have got no relation with salary.
