Pierre breaks the barriers for being a gay D.J. in France and wore a T-shirt saying ''Son of Immigrants, Black and Gay'' while having a gig for the president of France. My opinion on this topic people can't be upset because he was expressing his sexuality letting people know it okay to be gay

$100M Magic: Why Bruno Mars And Other Stars Are Ditching Their Managers

$100M Magic: Why Bruno Mars And Other Stars Are Ditching Their Managers | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
In addition to being one of the biggest stars in the music firmament, Bruno Mars is among a handful of high-profile acts who no longer answer to a traditional artist manager, choosing instead to take control of his own career starting two years ago.

Markeis Solomon's curator insight, July 20, 4:46 PM
Many of the industry’s top-paid acts still rely on high-powered managers, from U2 (who are managed by Guy Oseary and earned $118 million last year) to Katy Perry (Martin Kirkup, Bradford Cobb and Steve Jensen, $83 million) to Calvin Harris (Mark Gillespie, $48 million). Given those numbers, some argue that a well-connected guide can prove to be a bargain. Bruno Mars is among a handful of high-profile acts who no longer answer to a traditional artist manager, choosing instead to take control of his own career starting two years ago. Without a manager, Bruno Mars saved at least $10M this year alone.
Malea Weston's curator insight, September 16, 5:50 PM
I believe that an artists manager is a very important factor to an artist career depending on who the artist is because there are people in the industry like Bruno Mars and others named in this article have been in the industry long enough now that they know everything and they can handle everything themselves.

Daizaun Royalston's curator insight, August 17, 7:47 AM
I did NOT know this was a thing until recently! When I say recently I may mean within 2-3 weeks ago. I was online reading up on a few major producers and came to find out they aren’t creating the beats by themselves. I don’t think it’s exactly fair but hey whatever works? There are some producers who start from scratch create their own melodies, but they aren’t the ones trending on charts, at least high up. The source here is pretty reliable being it’s from Billboard, the source is pretty well known for more precise news rather false.
Frankie Brown's curator insight, August 19, 6:18 PM
The objective is to get paid doing something you love to do. The love of the music will outweigh everything, but when you can get paid for doing what you love, it's a whole different ball game.

This would definitely be a reliable source because billboard.com has been around for quite some time and is definitely a major source of information used by audio industry professionals.

Daizaun Royalston's curator insight, August 17, 9:20 AM
This is usually mentioned often when I converse about todays music. It has little to no meaning. Most songs nowadays are about who can smash the most women, how many drugs a person is taking, and how much cash they’ve spent in a day. I sometimes say that their isn’t many topics to cover as the topics that are nice are already made into classical hits. So, the guys coming up now don’t want to recycle but their idea of music isn’t as great because they choose not to dig inside themselves and put out meaningful music. The source of Vox seems pretty credible, although it’s my first time on the page. Vox had some pretty good content here and seemed to be on the right page.
Frankie Brown's curator insight, August 19, 5:41 PM
I believe that it is an artist responsibility to have an social conscious and  a level of awareness when it comes to the fans of their music. Therfore; all the songs filled with the glorification of glamour and other materlistic views should be replaced with upliftment or relatable songs that can the fans can connect with because the people that purchase their music aren't as well off as the artist.

The source of the reliability of information could be in question because threw research i found out that it is an information and opinion website. Nevertheless; I found the information given to me to have some relevance because there aren't many artist making music with social content. I don't know if this source has a major informational resource that is used by the industry professionals but i found it to be useful to me at this present time.
