      Thanks for a group that posted a very funny topic, as it gives me tonnes of idea on this beautiful morning. As I mentioned in the title above, my entry for this time is all about artist @ singer. 

      Artist is often describe as a person or a group who entertain people. There are many of them exist, in different country and different culture. As long as there is a fan, there will be also an anti-group as well. Shortly, world is always like that. 

     This 'career' is initially for fun, there is no such thing as professionalism in this area, as well as it is not meant for professional event. After several years (sorry about the time, I really forgot), artist's 'career' announced as one of the profession, just as lawyers, engineers do; they have their salary and bonus. As they always perform in public, they also describe as 'public figure'.

    Artist or a singer is paid based on their notability, as they started to sell their albums, people tend to buy it, listen to it and may like to it. This people is called as fans, the one that I assume as the backbone of this career. Why? because fans is actually "pay their salary". This may sound a little bit extreme, but this is the reality. It is true that this group is actually under a recording company, but the one who buy all the products from them is fans, or consumer.

     Now let me define the almost exact meaning of 'public figure', that is a person or group which become famous and notable, and 'famous' here is supposed to be linked by their talent. For a singer to sing and a performer to perform, it doesn't only composed of good voice, it includes everything; styles, attractiveness, and influences that will makes them to go up high in their career. Nowadays, there are millions of singers and performers, making them to work harder in order to influence fans. And for that, many performers are now put their focus more towards style and attractiveness. All this is mainly for attracting more fans and make their products to be sold in higher quantity. A simple hypothesis made from this chain is the more popular one artist is, the higher the quantity of his or her album sold.

       As there are many type of genre exist in this world of music, there are also various artist that present recently. Some of them are in groups, but some prefer to sing on their own, regardless what genre that they prefer, they keep singing and make fans.

    Variation of artist makes diverse of fans, and as a public figure, they started to be compared from one to another. Since 'to err is human', this phenomenon couldn't reach its end, finding the most perfect human that can perform in a stage without any noticeable mistake. Over protecting traits of human makes another group of fan born in this unfortunate world of entertainment, that is known as extremist. Extremist usually condemn an artist and propagandized their own interest, and for this topic, their artist.

        Now let me give a simple analogy, I go to a shop to buy sweets, but since there are many type of sweets with different brand and covers. Now, can you determine which sweets will I buy? Of course the one with colourful covers and decorations, as it gives me first impression, and do you know that first impression is a great psychological influence towards your body reflection? I may found it very tasteful for the first time, and I may get bored later, and I may changed to another sweets later on. Actually, this is the real life of an artist; they might being liked, but then some fans will be bored and some of them will forget the artist later on. As long as there is no improvements from the concepts, and style of singing, I afraid that the artist is on a flat track.

       In conclusion, artist is very dependent to their fans, and fans also depend to their artist. If there is no artist, there will be no fans, and vice versa. All I want to say is that fans should appreciate their artist and in the same time, respect others as well. There is no need for an anti group to be exist, as long as we care what we adore, since the artist themselves didn't quite fighting among themselves, why should we?

Another story of me in this huge world

      Seems it is  few days passed after I reached my 19th birthday, I am thinking about making a little summary of my life.  As I get older, my mind and soul keep searching for the meaning of love, yeah.. it's LOVE.. this four-letters-word has many unpredictable meanings inside of it. Although I'm 18 years old (This story happened last year), but I seem can't find this word's meant for me. I remember one of my teacher in primary school asked me about love, and I can't answer it with full of confidence, but as usual, I kept fooling around with the definition, situations that suddenly makes my friend named COURAGE is dying to find the true meaning of this. My mind kept telling me that I will find this true meaning of love one day. Couldn't do anything more except continuing my life as a human and a servant to my God.

    My search started when I was in primary school, I found a beautiful and sweet girl, but we never talked since she left the evening session school when we both in year four. I tried to be her best friend by sending letters (hahaha.. what a childish tactic ) and this letter worked. We kept in touch until the end of year six. After that, we lost contact for about a year before I could get her telephone number from a friend of mine. I learned many things from her, including an outer side of this LOVE. The first lesson that she taught me was "heart has its own will" (sorry, I paraphrase the statement). Yup, she applied it in her life and she lived happily now...

   After that, I found another interesting girl back in PLKN that reminded me a valuable thing that I wouldn't ever forget whenever I felt depressed because of my life, that is "All the thing that's happened is under Allah's permission" (one more time, I paraphrase it..). She is an attractive girl, lived in the same district of mine, and now study oversea. Hahaha.. kept in touch with her made me think that perhaps I'm not very suitable to be a boyfriend in terms of serious coupling matters but I am good in making friends with them. In this kind of relationship, I learned about the difference between friend and special girlfriend.

   One year at the furthest place I've ever been made me more matured in terms of critical thinking and my management. Maybe I learned all of them from my friends, teachers and not to forget my post in representative council. Also, I've made a big mistake from this college; that I regretted until this breath of time, I accidently made a promise to a girl. Without any further thinking, I confidently told  my feelings to her, yup, the feeling is true, but when I with her, I can't keep up my academic, it's not her fault, but I guess I am the one who is not really ready to commit a serious relationship. She is blessing in disguise, perfection over a simple person, always try her hard to make me comfortable with her, never ever complaint anything about me, although I knew that my personal life was worst at that particular time.. yeah, the only thing that I learned from this unfortunate relationship is "never give any commitment if you're already have another important commitment to make". Many asked me why and why, even myself kept thinking about it, I might not crying outside, but inside, Allah knows...

   From this three attempt of having a relationship, all I could say is I am not ready for knowing the true meaning of LOVE, perhaps towards my family is the most prior thing that I must do first. So, I will not having any other relationship until I feel that my commitment towards my academic is done.
