What makes an artist? What do you people think makes an artist? If someone does not write their own songs are they an artist? If someone does not sing live are they an artist? I think if you don't write your own songs well you should not be called an "Artist". I see this mainly in Pop music or what I like to call a product. When I talk to people that listen to pop music about this they tell me that even though they don't write or play their songs they are an artist. Many of them say "They have a good voice" well then does a good voice make an artist? What do you people think?
