Out of curiosity, just how many people on this forum actually believe that BoA's twitter actually contains SM/Avex/staff unreviewed/unapproved tweets made by BoA herself (100% of the time)?

BoA really needs to look at her own hypocrisy here. She watches the videos, but asks the fans not to share them for other fans? If you don't want other people to do something, don't do it yourself. It's not like these people are recording videos to bootleg and sell them for a profit.

If you don't want people recording, then release all the material on CD or DVD--it's that simple.

It's also very, VERY bad form for an artist to say such a thing. I've done business with music artists before, so I know first-hand that it's always left up to people at the venue, promoters, or whatever, to say things like this. The artist is NEVER supposed to comment. This isn't cute, it's rude and unnecessary.

BoA needs to be quiet about things that are other people's jobs, and stay focused on doing her own job. Especially in BoA's case, when she can barely give her CD's away in Japan anymore. She ought to be more concerned with finding better songs to record, than worry about what her fans are recording.

She should also be thankful that there are still people bothering to show up to her Japanese concerts to record fancams.

I still like BoA, of course--you can like someone and still point out when they're messing up. I'm just saying that somebody needs to set her straight.

(0.o) Not really sure how BoA's tweet relates to the music industry being garbage... She is part of the industry if I'm not mistaken... Unfortunately, artists only speak up for themselves when these "injustices" you speak of affect them personally. You certainly don't see them speaking on behalf of the fans when ticket prices/album costs skyrocket or when they release filler songs/lame re-releases and expect their supporters to come out in mobs to purchase their products. To be quite honest, the creation of her twitter account was strictly to bring fans closer to her on a personal level (though I am sometimes inclined to believe that it is her record label impersonating the idol and tweeting on her behalf for promotional purposes). Telling a fan not to do something (whether write or wrong) is something she should avoid in order to minimize any controversy. There shouldn't be any direct confrontation between fans and the artist as their job is to strictly promote and sell their music/products to their fans and not to act as a moral/ethical compass in decision making. As stated before, ALL FANS ALREADY KNOW THE RULES and there is no need for the artist to personally reiterate. It is the duty of the record labels/promoters to enforce these regulations and it is absolutely unnecessary for the artist to be involved on such a personal level. The decision to either follow all proper rules as well as the ethical code of conduct or to violate them and face consequences is something the fans will make for themselves...


I was responding to someone mentioning how Lady Gaga and Britney Spears are popular even with illegal downloads (though yes they aren't BoA). But I think Britney Spears is not a very good music artist, regardless of her popularity. She is more of an entertainer, an attention lover, but she hasn't PERFECTED the ART of music. She's not a very good singer, doesn't play any instruments, and barely writes any of her own lyrics. Only think she has going is dancing, which she could be a back-up dancer. I don't even think she produces music either. That's why I think the industry is garbage. Because people don't get paid anymore for how musically good they are, they get paid for looking good. Britney is popular, but she doesn't even have to try with her music. Someone can have a better voice than Britney, and not be nearly as famous. The commercialism is the problem with the industry since the '50s...I'll save that for another day.

Aside from that, of course people speak out when it's directed to them. And if it were YOU, would you want to be a doormat and not have any say so when you felt it was necessary? As I said, fans will always find something wrong. It's impossible not to offend anyone. People could be offended by her music itself.

What if she says she feels child labor is wrong in a song? That will also spur on controversy, and it can be personalized. Anything can be taken personally depending on your experience. But you can't please everybody.

Business is "fair" because everyone has the choice to purchase it. If you think it's too high, don't buy. People have a right to start/work/become a business and make a profit off of THEIR HARD WORK. They work hard for you,BoA works hard for you, she deserves to price what she makes. Trust me, her work is worth the price. Have you seen the way singers work? They barely eat, spend time with family, all for unappreciative fans who criticize every little thing. It's your choice to buy. You can't put hard work behind something and not get nearly as much in return. If the fans EXPECT BoA to have "awesome songs" they need to put money behind it. That's business. That is "economically fair". You get what you work for.

What's unfair in business is when someone puts hard work behind it, and a downloading website makes the profit that you should be making for what YOU did. What if you wrote a novel, and someone posted it on the internet. You can say it'll make the person get exposure, but what if the website is getting most of the money you could be making?

The problem with "commercialized industry" is that there are all of these unwritten rules that people EXPECT singers to follow. They might as well publish a rule book. The fans may know the rules, but they are ignoring it. So I guess rules are made to be broken? I saw it as a healthy reminder not to break the rules. Also considering the number of kids who like BoA. My 10 year old cousin didn't know fancams were even against the rules.

Wow. So you call people who have different opinions from yours 'stupid' ? And people who are entitled to theirs opinions & sharing their thoughts are busting in? Wow. That's all I can manage to say.


Again, at least to me, I was not arguing on who was right, who was wrong. I did not say fans were right when recording her concerts. I did not say there were any thing wrong with what BoA said.
I said what she said was unnecessary. That's my point.

And I feel like this conversation is going further & further from its origin. When people start to bashing & lashing each other instead of discussing, I'll be out of it. I'm outta here.

Peace to the world :)


Sorry. :(

I just feel getting bent out of shape about the tweet was unnecessary. But maybe both are.

^Sora, I agree with most of the points you made. Don't get me wrong. I don't condone illegal downloading or piracy by any means and it is definitely a travesty to see many lesser known artists lose their hard earned profits.

However, I do have to disagree with you regarding the Britney remarks. While I do despise her greatly and her music is simply awful IMO, she is in fact no different from BoA in any means. During the early stages of her career up until her 2nd album, she worked equally hard if not harder than BoA. She was also trained in numerous dance forms include ballet and gymnastics. Much like BoA, she was also heavily trained and not a natural performer/dancer. However, she has perfected the art of music as she was one of the few who successfully blended teenage bubble-gum pop iconism with adult dance while crossing over into mainstream adult pop. The entire modern Kpop scene is basically a copycat representation of Britney (down to the annoying sharply high pitched autotune tinged vocals featured by 2NE1). In fact, SM's BoA design was basically modeled after young Britney after seeing how she was developed as well as the success of her musical style. When you said Britney "doesn't even have to try with her music", the exact same thing can be said for BoA as most of recent albums feature monotone one not chorus lines and vocals with the exact level of unappealing vocal modified Melodyne generated production sound. The same comparison can also be drawn against BoA with tons of unknown S Korean artists, dancers, and power vocalists who could probably outshine and out perform BoA but have yet to receive any success because they are not under a major Asian record label.

The industry has definitely become garbage (as you said) and not just because of commercialism but the lower musical standards set by record labels who choose trends and image appeal over actual music. It is very true that piracy has had a great impact on global sales but not nearly as much as the industry would like you to believe. Sales are down because the quality of music is down. That's the real reason behind the decline. If artists released better songs, you still see them fly off Itunes and cd sales still soar into the millions after a few months. The movie industry is a perfect example with heavily pirated films still making hundreds of millions of dollars because people feel it is worth the ticket price and the future DVD purchase.

As much as most fans would hate to admit, BoA's recent string of releases (whether Japan or Korea) simply aren't very good in terms of musical quality and content (blame Avex and Sm as they stopped investing in her songs). Some might even call it boring. One can tell from her live performances as most seem to go through the motion without any actual excitement or enthusiasm (Again, you can blame the labels for poor song choices).

I STRONGLY DISAGREE WITH ANYONE WHO BELIEVES THAT A GOOD SONG REQUIRES A GREAT DEAL OF MONETARY INVESTMENT. What you can say is that the record industry would like to make a great profit off a good song. The cost of producing a single is exceptionally high due to the number of people involved and credited (oftentimes highly unnecessary) and because of the status of the songwriters/producers/composers allegedly working behind the scenes. The quality of a track isn't measured by the amount of money spent in production but by the composition itself. Also, it isn't as much work as many would like to believe to produce a song. BoA's work is less than 5% of what is required for the audio portion. However, they would like you to believe that it takes them 10 hours and 100+ tries to dub the vocal layer LOL. Most of the heavy lifting is done by the audio engineer. As long as the singer has pre-rehearsed and practiced their sections prior to the recording session, it probably won't take more than 5-10 takes to get a solid track. Most of her labor comes from the dance choreography.

^
I think Britney Spears works hard, but I can't say she got famous for her music. Most people in the music world try to work their hardest. But the music world is supposed to be competitive. You would think that the most talented would come on top. Britney isn't truly the most talented of singers out there, and yet is more famous than most of people that have more talent. She really got famous because she looked good and was young. Her music wasn't any more exceptional than any other singer. Her voice isn't anything to write home about. I'm saying she didn't get famous for her musical ability. If that were the case, musical critics would've thrashed her lack of singing ability and musical knowledge. But she doesn't really HAVE to try hard, even if she does, because she's got the looks.

BoA actually has singing ability, and can clearly reach altitudes with her voice. Though she was constructed after, Britney, she actually has musical talent to back herself up. Of course, I do think that if it were a fair competition for talent, if BoA isn't musically as talented as someone else, she has to buckle under the competition and work on her music twice as hard. Improve her singing abilities the best that she can. Express herself a little more and show off her lyrical abilities so she can be taken seriously as an artist.

As far as music needing money, I think they have to pay the audio engineer, the choreographers, and they have to give them at least 25% of what they make. There was a graph on the internet. That's what I mean by the money goes into the quality. In order to hire managers, producers, etc, money is needed. You have to pay choreographers. And to develop better music programs, money is needed too. Money is needed to hire a songwriter even. Creating music isn't cheap. It comes with a cost most people would scream at. Managers do the hiring, but they need to be paid a bit of the singers income as well.

As far as her later music being low in quality and boring, I think that's more personal taste. I actually find her later things to be more seasoned as BoA produces some of her own music, actually sings better (and not through her nose), writes many of her lyrics now, and still shows improved dancing. She also has developed her own style that sets her apart from other pop singers. She's reached all musical altitudes. To me, that improves the musical quality. "Catchy songs" doesn't show musical quality to me. I think that's more personal taste. But to critically analyze music, one has to consider the different musical levels the artist has reached to perfect their art. A musical artist has perfected the art when they're able to produce songs, write or co-write songs, and sing, improving in singing style and reach, possibly learning to play instruments to give the sound quality, etc. Music is really a creative thing, which comes from the emotion (or should anyway). The songs reflect the attitude of the singer, so to critique that would be hard. Like most people would think Sarah McLaughlan is boring, but some people think she has beautiful music. But they judge her music credentials based on the fact that she sings well, and plays guitar well, showing she has excellent musical abilities, regardless of her style and genre.

That's just my thought. I see your point as well. I don't think piracy has had as much of an impact on sales as the industry wants us to believe. I just think there is a fear it will one day have that kind of impact.

Sarah McLaughlan! I love her voice. She's a very good singer (reminds me of a US folk version of Enya) but I prefer her older works as they were more melodic and unique with greater variation.

BoA does have a superior vocal ability to Britney's highly nasal infused singing (so annoying IMO). But at the same time, though BoA has improved in vocal pitch control and vibrato, many can still see a some similarity in her voice to Britney's ballads (whatever few ones she had). Both have thinner voices featuring nasal tones. BoA's vocal prowess peaked during the GOT era (and probably strained her voice singing beyond her range) and as a result, you see more and more subtle and soft ballads in an effort to preserve her voice for future projects.

I'm well aware of the price tag that comes along with major label productions. A lot of times, it is highly unnecessary. Many choose to hire producers with the greatest status who command enormous salaries as well as a percentage of the "gross" royalties generated by the singles or the entire album (depending on how many songs they produced for the artist). And no, money does not go into the quality. It mostly goes for the name. There are MANY... and I do mean MANY certified pro-audio engineers with decades worth of experience who can do an excellent and affordable job recording, mixing, and mastering an album from start to finish. Labels, however, go for name, status, referral, and reputation over actual skill. They tend to book the most expensive studios (mainly because these studios attract other stars or because they supposedly update themselves with the newest hardware, gear, and software). Perfect example: Creed's My Own Prison album cost $6000 + an additional $2000 for re-mastering by Wind-up records. It sold 6 million+ copies. Their Human Clay album cost roughly $20,000 for the entire production and sold over 10 million. Both albums featured great quality but lesser known staff. Their 3rd album Weathered went in excess of $1 million dollars, sold 6 million copies and featured roughly the same sound quality as the previous albums. Why the extra costs? Big name production and unnecessary over-budgeting.

I'm little uncertain about what you mean regarding music programs... I'm guessing you're referring to MV production and choreography, etc. While I agree that producing music isn't exactly cheap, it isn't as expensive as many would expect. That is down to a good budget strategy, pre-production preparation, as well as putting quality above status and quantity. Having one efficient and skilled audio engineer is more than enough to record an entire album but most major artists such as BoA feature a different one for each track in different studios. Also, having one or two different music producers is more than adequate but we often see a different producer for every song. The music producers job is to strictly enforce the release of a single/album by overseeing the management of the entire recording process while executive producer manages the budget for the project. However, in BoA's case, she has multiple A&R + their staff, a manager (sometimes managers), dozens of songwriters/lyricists/composers/instrumentalists, numerous choreographers + back up choreographers, and many booked studio sessions (sometimes in multiple countries) which dramatically increase the cost in order to justify the album making process. The typical music manager is actually to a 3rd party hired by the artist to act as a middleman between the artist and the label and to help make career decisions on behalf of the artist regarding business deals, contract negotiations, concert tours, booking, promotions, etc. but in BoA's case, this person is a salaried employee under the employment of SM Entertainment so their primary interest is actually Sm and BoA. Also, the reality is, Sm buys the rights to songs by obtaining a collective music license (probably in bulk) from a music publisher. If a song is used, they may choose to commission the songwriter as a consultant and pay them a small percentage of mechanical royalties. However, in S Korea, major labels actually have a lot of in house songwriters and whatever songs they write are owned entirely by the label (unlike the US).

LOL... I find it highly amusing that SM/Avex finally decided to label a few songs with BoA as a "producer" after much industry criticism over the years regarding her lack of creative input (again, the label's fault) However, I would use that term sparingly as the producer is often heavily involved in the technical aspects of mixing and mastering as well as the sound design and acoustics of the entire song. Personally, I think she's trying to adopt a softer adult contemporary style similar to that of Alicia Keys. However, songs such as Hurricane Venus and Copy & Paste are actually several steps back in terms of musical and melodic quality. From a composer/songwriter's standpoint, things have actually became simpler and more repetitious ins structure and progression with many chorus lines falling flat and staying within the same 1 or 2 note ranges. Maybe she is trying to sound more mature but a lot of her "emotional singing" and artistic vocals are really just used to compensate for the songs lack of a definitive melody. It's a similar situation with Kelly Clarkson when she attempted to write and compose her own songs for her 3rd album (what a disaster that was!!). Thank God BoA's wasn't like that. IMO, I think artists often try much too hard to show the world how talented they are in all aspects and many times expose their weaknesses instead. Like Celine Dion would say: Leave the job of songwriting to the experts...

Like Celine Dion would say: Leave the job of songwriting to the experts...

Do you know how much I love Enya? <3 Not as much as BoA of course. This is the only singer I put good money behind.

As I said, with BoA's lyrical ability (as well as that with Kelly Clarkson) it's all up to personal taste. BoA should have creative input, its more personal and comes from the heart that way, showing the hard work put behind it. Hurricane Venus was a set back to me in my opinion because she went back to mainstream pop. I think that was because of her lack of success with Identity, a less pop-ish album and leaning more towards hip-hop or pop urban. I think naturally she prefers Identity.

I think because BoA moved away from the nasal sound, she has evolved as an artist, making her musical quality higher, showing that she is working hard to improve. However, her voice gives out more do to how strenuous that type of singing is.

As far as music being cheap to make, if someone is as famous as Boa, do you see her singing and performing in a cheap venue? Do you think she should not have the best choreographers, producers, songwriters, etc? And I'm talking about studio equipment. All of which cost money. Some of the places demand payment to use/rent/make appointments for studios. The more famous a singer is, the more people demand more pay. It's more of the workers' demanding of the pay. If it were up to the singer they wouldn't even want to pay their "group" And SM as you said is more interested in it's reputation. But I do agree that some great quality work has been made for cheap. Janelle Monae is a PRIME example.

As far as the weaknesses, some say the "weaknesses shown is the art itself". Prime person: Beethovan. lol

So much knowledge on the music industry you have! Pretty cool. B)

But as far as the twitter thing goes, I can see everyone's views now so much more clearly now. Glad I had this discussion. :thumbsup:

^ Enya is awesome!! Her voice is so soft and melodic and emotional, giving a sense of relaxation. Often time feels like a first person experience within a fairy tale LOL! She and Sarah Brightman are my favorite singers in the folk/soprano/operatic/symphonic genres.

Hurricane Venus was definitely a step back. It just didn't have the same feel or energy as her earlier works. I'm guessing SM was a bit taken by the foray into the US market and decided to place more focus on SNSD. The result was less effort into BoA's Korean return. Much of that return seemed forced and there wasn't the same level of enthusiasm in her performances which led me to believe she either wasn't connecting with her choreography or simply didn't like her release singles. The excessive smoky make up/facial ornaments on the album also made her age heavily in appearance...

Honestly, I think SM/Avex both need to focus more on her music now that the dominance of idol groups/performers has taken away any unique appeal from the dance/pop genre. They need to give her more ballads and power-pop songs that focus on melody and lyrics in order to avoid falling back into the same trend that's plaguing their industry. No more auto-tune and just plain old natural singing with good live instrumentals (preferably non-synth and non-electronic). It would definitely be a breath of fresh air.

I definitely see your point with the cost. The industry is heavily based upon status so they often spend huge quantities on expensive major studios who charge in excess due to your fame but not always yielding the highest sound quality. Major labels such as SM look down upon other studios with lesser known clientele as inferior even though they can generate just as high a quality in sound if not higher without the added price tag. I guess it's all about designer names which is very sad. It limits the availability of audio engineers, producers, choreographers, songwriters, composers, and lyricists in order to preserve the stature of the few elite who are hired by the major labels. That's probably why the industry is in such rapid decline. It's horrible how they equate name, status, and big budgets with high quality...

LOL! Trying to get anything as an unknown songwriter/composer/producer meant I had to learn as much information as I could from every source available, whether it was a talent agency, indie label, promotions firm, entertainment attorney, music publisher, etc. I didn't want to have to go back to school for many years in order to get a degree in music business (since that would be another big waste of time seeing as to how the industry is more about connections than anything else) so I just did as much research as I could on copyright law, music publishing/licensing, entertainment law, music production contracts, etc. while meeting some people who were willing to share their industry experience with me and help me learn more about how things worked in front and behind the scenes :D!

This discussion was definitely highly entertaining!!

LOL If I didn't know better, I'd have thought some of you were antis. :P

Look, BoA got youtube links of those two songs from fans. (only audio not fancams actually)

She got hyped up listening to her own performance and happily retweeted links to her followers.

Several minutes (or hours) later, she realized that by retweeting those links, it can be interpreted that she approved of fan recordings in her concerts.

Naturally, she'd tweet another message saying "On a second thought, isn't recording at concert illegal? Fans, please refrain from recording in the future."

I find it very adorable on her part!! I even tweeted a message myself saying "Attention all BoA fans, since BoA has asked us nicely, please behave from now on." (not exact quote.)

I guess people' perceptions are really different.

Totally agreed. People's perceptions are truly different. There are so many different replies from BoAjjangers...
