I never said music isn't an art form.
Performing artist I'm okay with.

Now now, must I beat you over the head with a dictionary?

This is what happens when I get mad at idiots.

He was this: a musician, singer, composer, writer, actor, entertainer.
He was not an artist because he did not paint anything. He did not manifest his inner self in 2-d media so that it could be hung on a wall. Artist, paint.
Yes! Music is an "art" form. But Michael Jackson did not make "art" he made music.
Do you understand these titles? They are very important to those in the arts.
You would not call Meryl Streep an artist, would you? No! Because she's an ACTRESS not an ARTIST! You wouldn't call John Lennon an artist because he was a MUSICIAN not an ARTIST! You wouldn't call Picasso a MUSICIAN or an ACTOR because he was an ARTIST. Do you understand?
Michael Jackson was not a talented artist, he was a talented musician. Artist is NOT a term which anyone who makes a living doing anything under the umbrella of ART falls under. They have their own umbrellas. Okay? Do we get it? Do we understand? Can we stop calling him an artist now?


Great! Now go talk about how much you love him so I don't get banned.

artists use other mediums than paint and he had a fashion line so it technically qualifies him to be an artist

or a fashion designer.
So a painter wants to be called an artist? Tsk... so many negative thoughts associated with the word.

It's alright, it happens to the best of us now and then. Just get back up, dust yourself off, and get right back on that pedestal.

All I'm trying to do is encourage you all to be more specific. It's like using pronouns. You can't say. "She had a cat. Her cat was brown." Who is she? Now correctly, "Mary had a cat. Her cat was brown."
The pronoun is okay because you were specific in the first related clause.
The same can go for what my first post was about.
Though I was rather dramatic, maybe if I exaggerate, you can all understand the principle.

I have successfully tongue tied myself
via the internet.
It' like foreplay but he already came.
When I think painter, I think--oh, he's pretty good. When I think artist, I think--oh, he's trying to make a living but just can't quite cut it.

I agree.
You don't here people call themselves "starving painter"


It really does come down to a personal preference. If Meryl Streep wanted me to call her a goldfish then I would. If that's how she interpreted her job, I'd readily respect it. If some honest nobody sculptor wanted me to call him an artist, I'd do it.
