Ingrid Casares on Madonna’s new album
To some it’s a revolution, to others it’s just evolution. But, whatever you call it, TAI, the nocturnal troika of Tommy Pooch, Alan Roth and Ingrid Casares, has just lost its I. According to Casares, who was with TAI for just over a year, the parting is purely amicable -it’s just that the partners didn’t see eye to, uh, I.
”It’s nothing personal,” she says. “We just want to do different things. No hard feelings.”
Her former partners agree. ”Ingrid is great, and Tommy and I will always care for her. But we just had different directions we wanted to take the company,” Roth says.
On Casares’ to do list: ”I’m working on Madonna’s new album, which is a dance record,” she says. ”I’ll be working on that nationwide.” She’s also doing an MTV Video Music Awards party at the Raleigh with Maverick Records honcho Guy Oseary; Pink, the gay-friendly monthly event at the Raleigh, and she’s reteaming with former Joia partner Nicola Siervo in the restaurant biz again when Quattro opens on Lincoln Road in December.
”I get offers every day,” she says. ”Thank God, life is good.” How can it be bad when you’re BFF with Madge?
