Singer Britney Spears has completed an intensive 30-day psychological treatment program. If all goes ‘normal’, she does not need to go back and forth to the hospital in a short time to check the condition to the psychiatrist who had handled it.
Spears’ exit from the hospital was celebrated by a number of fans who demonstrated #FreeBritney on Monday, April 22, at City Hall, Hollywood, Los Angeles. The fans who feel concerned about the idol’s condition do not want to see the movements of Spears continue to be arranged by others.
However, they must accept that fact. Since 2008, the Chicago court ruled that Spears must always be under supervision (conservatorship). The woman was considered unable to manage personal income and failed to maintain mental health. As a result, all of Spears’s actions must be monitored and approved by lawyer Samuel D.Ingham and her father, Jamie Spears. The lawyer was tasked with ensuring the legality of Spears’ various employment contracts, while Jamie was responsible for the health and all of his children’s activities.
Spears was deemed necessary to be monitored after being proven to have a mental disorder, consuming various types of illegal drugs and excessive alcohol, and was repeatedly rushed to the hospital due to worsening psychological conditions.
On the one hand, the fans feel the 37-year-old singer needs to be given a space of freedom. They believe their idols can undergo various roles in a life well provided they are given the opportunity. Some fans even thought the supervisors often took advantage of Spears’ condition.
As an illustration, during ten years overseeing Spears, Ingham earned a total of $ 2 million. While Jamie’s income as a supervisor is $ 130,000 per year, it does not include the cost of replacing the supervisor’s office rent. Spears’s father also took 1.5% profit from the income of each of his children’s concerts.
Supervisors also have the responsibility of ‘maintaining privacy’ for Spears, including maintaining exclusivity by setting high tariffs for media who want to photograph or interview Spears. A single photo and interview fee can be set at millions of dollars.
Until now, Spears still has a high selling point. The concert which was supposed to be held this year is expected to generate revenues of around $ 500,000. According to the Huffington Post, that number is still higher than the singer Celine Dion’s concert.
The prediction is just wishful thinking. Earlier this year, Spears announced the cancellation of the concert because it took time for herself and took care of James, who was seriously ill. After the news circulated, Spears rarely appeared in the mass media. Fans were suspicious. They speculate that Spears is undergoing psychological treatment.
Fan suspicion is not entirely wrong. In early April 2019, a number of Spears’ close relatives were relieved that Spears was willing to undergo a mental treatment program. The media later reported that Spears was depressed because her father had a chronic illness.
Other news emerged from comedians Tess Barker and Barbara Gray, a podcast host titled Britney Gram. In one of the episodes, they presented a secret source who mentioned that Spears failed to perform a concert because she was found taking drugs during a live rehearsal. Spears’s behavior is said to make the father cancel the event.
If it were true that the burden of Spears’ thoughts had increased, the biggest thing that might have been the cause was not the father’s illness but the failure to act according to personal will – something she had not had since childhood.
Spears was born to an alcoholic father who worked as a contractor and a mother who was a teacher. The Spears family is classified as a middle-class family that lives barely in the US. Conditions became even more complicated when Jamie declared his business to go bankrupt, so Lynn, Spears’ mother, turned the child into a ‘money machine’ by including her in various television program auditions. Since then, Spears’ road to celebrity has opened.
In “The Tragedy of Britney Spears” (2008), Rolling Stone journalist Vanessa Grigoriardis said that Spears joined in the choir, dance classes at the age of three years gymnastic classes. At the age of six, she won the Miss Talent Central States. At the age of eight, Lynn took Spears to Atlanta to audition for Mickey Mouse Club, an event that made Spears debut as a television star. In January 1999, she launched Baby One More Time and began to become an idol. The first two albums sold more than 39 million copies.
Through The Exile of Britney Spears (2011), Christopher R. Smit said Spears’ income from 1999-2008 could reach $ 120 million per year. The income that can be obtained from the tour is around $ 150 million. If calculated, the income of Spears per month around $ 737,000.
“Over time, Spears gradually lost confidence. Every time she performed in front of tens of thousands of spectators, she cried and felt bad. At that time, people began to offer her to drink and use illegal drugs. She welcomed the offers because she thought it would make her happy. If she grows up to be someone who likes parties, drugs, and alcohol, it’s because her management makes her act that way, “said Darrin Henson, Spears’ video clip choreographer.
The loss of Spears’ confidence occurred before she was stepping on two heads. At that time, the figure that made her calm was her former lover, Justin Timberlake. Unfortunately, their relationship foundered because Spears was caught sleeping with a friend of Timberlake. Spears’s condition at that time worsened because of the breakup event close to her parents’ divorce. Spears also felt tired and tried to find love from other men to heal the heart’s wounds.

The viral video makes the original singer, Lionel Richie, plans to release a new version of “We Are The World” to raise funds related to this pandemic.
Richie did not think that the song could be a meaningful message in the midst of a c-virus pandemic. The song he wrote with Michael Jackson as a charity song originally recorded by the USA for Africa in 1985. He had to rethink this song long before the virus was made by Gal Gadot, who sang along with Jamie Dornan, Jimmy Fallon, Natalie Portman, Sia, Mark Ruffalo, Norah Jones, and others.

“What is happening in China, in Europe, here. So if we don’t save our brother there, it will return to his home. It is us. We are here together, ”
When raising funds with this song, they managed to get 63 million US dollars (US). The song also won sales of more than 20 million US dollars. We Are The World was sung with friends Richie and Jacko, such as Stevie Wonder, Kenny Rogers, Jackson 5, Daryl Hall, and many others.
We Are The World was also sung during Michael Jackson’s last funeral in June 2009. The performance brought the song to the charts since 1985. Currently, Richie is isolating herself with her family in order to fight the c-virus. The United States reported 46,332 cases of c-virus with New York totaling 21,689 cases, and 157 people were declared dead.
Who does not know classical music? Everyone in the world knows it. However, not everyone knows the history of classical music even though this type of music has a big part in the development of the music industry in the world. Music is one of the things that has never been eaten by the ages. Music seems to have ingrained in every part of human activities both from an early age to the elderly.
With music, there is a human soul-filled and come back to life with various genres as their respective identities. One of the most listened to is classical music. As the name implies, this music offers calm that soothes the soul. Even though classical music is only instrumental, the resulting tone can make anyone fascinated.
The classical era itself has a span of years between 1750 -1820 AD. In short, this music genre was present between the middle of the Baroque era (baroque & smoking) and the romantic era of music afterward. The most striking characteristic of its nature lies in the melody above the chord’s accompaniment, the homophone. The melody is light, short, and easy to follow.
Actually, there are three periods of classical music, namely the Early Music Period, the Common Practice Period, and the Music and Contemporary Period.
Early Music Period appears in the early period of his birth. In this period, the flow of classical music was divided into two eras, namely Medieval and Renaissance. In the Medieval era, music that was born was still influenced by previous eras, namely starting from the end of the Roman Empire until the Renaissance in 1400. While in the Renaissance era, music that was born had begun to be influenced by the use of musical instruments.
During the Common Practice Period, the flow of classical music was divided into the Baroque and Classical eras. Baroque has main characteristics, including complex bass lines and balanced total points. Baroque is the forerunner to the formation of an orchestra, while Classical is formed by the rules regarding the composition, presentation, and style of this music itself.
Music and Cotemporary Period is recorded as the peak of classical music with the highest strata. This period is also referred to as the beginning of musical progress until the era of the 20th century today. But in this digital era, classical music fans quite intimidated by digital music platforms such as Apple Music and Spotify that are not designed to meet their needs.
Wired reported that one example was when fans searched for “Beethoven’s 5th” on Spotify, fans would get a seemingly random list of songs that were chosen purely based on song titles.
Meanwhile, Spotify itself declined to comment on the sophistication of the metadata for its classical music files. This streaming service makes the majority of their income from non-classical music, so it is not surprising that their search facility is set to focus only on other genres.
So what do you think about classical music in this era? Do you think it still can continue to spread?
