Have you ever asked yourself how a mediocre artist made it? Some are better salesmen and promoters than they are artists.

Artists must be 100% true to themselves. Don’t expect loyalty when you can’t provide honesty.

Artists don’t structure their lives around the opinions of others and aren’t swayed by social feedback. Kanye will buy Universal Music Group and he doesn’t care what you say. He will run for president and doesn’t care if you think he is suffering from neurosis.

Artists don’t mind not knowing what the future holds.

Artists can laugh at themselves when they make mistakes. Adele stopped singing during her Grammy performance after realizing she was off-key. “I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him [George]”. The crowd cheered her on and she ended up receiving a standing ovation.

Artists build long lasting relationships with a few people instead of superficial friendships with many people.

Artists live in the moment instead of sticking to a routine.

Art and creativity is a process, not an endgame.
Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are ultimately at peace with themselves.

Artists let their true self emerge.

Artist make honest statements daring to be different, unpopular, and nonconforming.

Some of the most iconic artists and figures are neurotic and manic. It’s channeled in their work,

There are amazing singers who will never pick up a microphone, and songwriters that will never write down their thoughts, and painters that will never paint. It’s heartbreaking.
It saddens me that there are amazing artists who do nothing and are content watching mediocre artists clog up playlists and perform at award ceremonies.

Artists who try to get rich quick end up going broke instead.

Artist aren’t just looking to make a good living, they’re looking to make a statement.

It’s nice to have one hit song, it’s better to have two hits. Just ask Lewis Capaldi who called himself the one hit wonder. Now he has to live with having two mega hits.
Artist learn to shut out the noise of the world.

After a year from the purchase, Justin Bieber manager Scooter Braun sold Taylor Swift’s master rights for the first six albums. Does that mean he’s no longer a walking piñata that gets beaten up by daily by the Hollywood folk singer? Just when you thought it was safe from spiders, the black widow strikes again..

Taylor said, “Scooter’s team wanted me to sign an ironclad NDA stating I would never say another word about Scooter Braun unless it was positive, before we could even look at the financial records of BMLG (which is always the first step in a purchase of this nature),” she wrote. “So, I would have to sign a document that would silence me forever before I could even have a chance to bid on my own work.”
Swift said she received a letter that private equity company Shamrock Holdings had bought all of her music, videos and album art from Braun. “This was the second time my music had been sold without my knowledge. The letter told me that they wanted to reach out before the sale to let me know, but that Scooter Braun had required that they make no contact with me or my team, or the deal would be off,” Swift wrote.
Swift learned that “under their terms Scooter Braun will continue to profit off my old musical catalog for many years.” She added, “I was hopeful and open to the possibility of a partnership with Shamrock, but Scooter’s participation is a non-starter for me.”
Regardless, Taylor plans to re-record her old catalogue.
