Question Tile before paint or after ?

I live in las vegas and most every one here uses mastic for the walls and of all the info I have found you should treat the transition joint the same as a CBU joint then after the joint has dried use sheetrock mud to feather the transition just like it was a sheetrock joint ! this is where I have stopped work on the wall till i get more info - some of my tiles will fall on the feathered mud area and im a little worried that the mastic will emulsify the sheetrock mud - I was told by a tile setter here I should texture and paint the wall up to the CBU, is it ok to paint first what type of paint ??

A pic of what i started with - greenboard should be outlawed
Heres a picture of my transition from CBU to Sheet Rock -
