I've been reading some blog, and there was a quote by Mat Cothran: 
"I don't think music is art. 
i think it is entertainment. 
this only bothers me when musicians see themselves as artists instead of entertainers. 
and that bothers me a lot." 

So I was thinking what is the ART then? 
someone may say it is a painting. but why? I mean painting is only technological stuff, it's about understanding light, perspective, colours and everybody can teach how to draw/paint if they are patient enough. 
If a music isn't art because it's only entertainment, by this theory films are not an art as well, so what is the art? 
who is a real artist? is it an actor or writer? musician? painter? photographer? 
In my opinion art have to make you think.Should bring a new ideas to you and help you to see something hidden. And then it doesn't matter what made you think. If it's a music, film,painting, photo, book, or even game, quote or comedy... For me, if it pushes me forward, If it makes a conflict in me it is an art for me. 

PS: This is my opinion, and you doesn't have to agree with me. But please, comment this article and share what made you think and what is an art for you. It's really nice topic to discuss.
