handle with care please

昔からおもってたのだけど
作品やスタイルや言葉や持ち物まで
クックパッドの”つくれぽ”みたいに
"あたしもやってみました〜!”って
平気ですぐとりいれるひとたちの精神が
理解できない

あたしは特に知り合いに
類似しないように
同じようなことはしないように
ものすごく
気をつけてるのにね
そこがアーティストと商業的な魂の
ちがいかもしれない
オマージュとかインスピレーションとか影響うけたとか
ひとこというくらいの
気遣いってないのかしら?

そして、"アーティスト"っていう言葉でさえ
いつしか
"ミュージシャン"に乗っ取られたの
気づいてた?
アーティストですって言うと
"どんな歌うたってるんですか?”って
聞かれる時代なのよ!?そこら辺にいたおばあさんにでさえ!
おかしいわ〜;)
"はい。。。呼吸するための歌うたってます!!”
とでも言おうか?


I've been thinking for while now...
i totally do not understand
the way of some people
who just copies
art works, style, words, and belongings
easily like cooking recipes you get from internet...
without caring
the person who creates and so on

I've been very careful
and paying respect to not become similar
specially if i know this people
maybe it is the difference
between artist and commercial spirit?
(or famous, not famous?)
can't you care the person who you copy?
saying it as "homage" or "inspired"?
its insane pretending
as if it was made from the beginning
original doesn't exist anymore though ;0
at least, please be honest and pay respect

and
did you notice
the word "artist" is being hacked
by the word "musician"?
its crazy...
if i say "i am an artist"
people ask me now a days
"so what kind of song do you sing?"
even an old lady i met in the street asked me
funny ;)
"well.. i sing to make myself breathe!"

don't copy somebody's idea so soon!
just copy your own style!!!
