Justin Bieber is signed by Island, Island Teen, RBMG, schoolboy and def jam record label. They are all universal music groups. One of the main record labels Justin Bieber was signed by is Island record. Island record is a major record label, which operates as a division of Universal Music Group. Island records was found by Chris Blackwell, Graeme Goodall, and Leslie Kong in Jamaica and has been located in the UK since 1962. The record brand consists of three brands in the world; Island UK, Island US and Island Australia. This is mainly due to the labels significant legacy.

Furthermore, Island Record also own subsidiary labels such as: Apollo Recordings, Teen Island, Mercury Records and many other labels. Island Record market their bands and artists mainly through websites, by updating regularly on band and artists.
Justin Bieber is a songwriter and singer. He produces pop, teen pop and R&B music. His target audience is teenage girls between the ages of 12-19 year old; this is because most of his songs contain cheesy pop lyrics, which attract the attention of girls. Also, he produces songs that are deep and many teenage girls are able to relate to: e.g. most of his songs are related to heartbreaks. Justin Bieber became famous through YouTube. In early 2007, Justin Bieber was aged 12 and he sang ‘Neyo’s ‘So Sick’ for a local singing competition and he came 2nd place in the competition. His mother Pattie Mallete posted this on YouTube including various other covers of him singing to R&B music, this resulted in his videos obtaining millions of views. Moreover, he used to sing on the streets of Ontario Stratford in order to give to his single parent mother money. He was found by Scooter Braun in 2007 and was signed to ‘Raymond Braun Media Group’, a joint venture between Braun and Usher. He was later signed to ‘Island Records’ in October 2008 by L.A. Reid of the Island Def Jam.

Justin Biebers star persona is seen to be sexy, attractive, charming and stunning. For example, in most of his pictures his either topless or wearing attractive clothing or posing in a sexual way in order to look attractive. This conveys that his obsessed with his body figure. He is also, a model for Calvin Klein. This suggests that he likes showing off his body. Moreover, in the pictures of his albums his looking away from the camera, this connotes that his vain.
Justin Biebers star persona is seen is through his new album ‘Purpose’, which is his 11th album released. For example the mise en scene of what his wearing is topless and has his hands are hold together almost as if his praying. This illustrates his obsession with body, also; maybe he used a topless picture in order to grab the attention of teenage girls. Nonetheless, he the cover of his album is black and white, this portrays that this album is based on his past, as using black and white is a stereotypical way of saying something is old. This album includes various genres of music such as: teen pop, electronic dance music and acoustic R&B. Most of the songs in this album are based on heartbreak. The albums front cover says ‘purpose’ in a signature form, however the name of the album does stand out as much as he is. Suggesting, that he sees himself and dominant. However, him topless may appeal to his target audience, therefore that may be the reason why he chose to be topless. Also, his album ‘my world’ is aimed at teenagers between the ages of 13-17. His CD cover for ‘My Word’, contains a warm peachy colour, which is eye-catching to younger girls due to the tone being seen as stereotypically feminine.
Justin Biebers audience are young teenage girls between the age of 12-17 years old. His target audience are most likely to be teenage girls who are easily entertained by materialistic things such as: social media and maybe even media and the Internet. In order for Bieber to gain fans he tweets and posts pictures on social media. This enables him to gain fans as well as update his fans about upcoming events and his personal life. His fans are called ‘ Belieber’, this conveys to his target audience that he cares about them therefore; he created them a fan base name. His primary audience are obsessive fans that engage in all types of activities like: his book signing, film premiers and concerts. Nonetheless, his secondary audience are older females between the age of 20-25 year olds, who may find his music interesting and may even find him attractive. They may like the content of his because they might have gone through heartbreak or they just like the context of the lyrics in general.
Marketing within the music industry is when an individual, band or company promote their music through three strands promotion, advertising and publicity. Promotion is sponsorships between artists and other companies. Advertising is by selling albums, concert tickets etc in order to make money. Lastly, publicity is raising awareness of the singer or band.
Promotion is when an artist works with another company in order to promote the companies’ product. The used of celebrity impacts the companies business positively and it also, allows the celebrity to be known by a wider audience. For example, Justin Bieber is a ‘Calvin Klein’ mode; for the underwear department, this allows the business to target Justin Biebers boy fans to buy the product. As well as it promotes himself to Calvin Klein customers, allowing them to research about who he. Also, in the Calvin Klein advert Justin Bieber is playing drums, reinforces his musical personality. He is also, presented in a seductive way, through mise en scene and lighting. For example I denote that he is topless and the lighting used is low-key lighting. This further appeals and attracts to his female audience.
Justin Bieber also, has three perfumes called: ‘Girlfriend’, ‘The Key’ and ‘Someday’. In both perfumes ‘Girlfriend’ and ‘The Key’ he advertises his perfume in a seductive way he also, promotes his music in the video, this is because it is heard in the background. This enables people who don’t know Justin Bieber to know about his perfume as well as his music; through this it enables him to widen his audience.
All his record labels via TV advertisements, poster and billboards advertise Justin Biebers music. This allowed Justin Bieber to be recognized universally. For example, Justin Bieber has 3 perfume adverts ‘someday’,’ girlfriend’ and ‘the key’. This enabled Justin Bieber to be known by wider audience, as adverts cannot be skipped on TV. Moreover, advertisements allow fans e.g. Beliebers to have an emotional connection with him.
Publicity is very common with artists and bands and one of the major ways is through social media. For example, Justin Bieber has over 71.5 million followers on Twitter; this suggests that Justin Bieber has a massive fan base. This also, conveys that through his commitment in advertising he enabled with a large fan base. Justin Bieber interacts with his followers by tweeting them back or following, this demonstrated his love and passion for music and his fans. Moreover, he tweets about his life and upcoming events such as releasing an album or about concerts. For example, when he was releasing his album ‘journals’, he released a song every Monday; this provided one-week time for each song to be heard precisely by his fans. This also, reinforces their star persona caring and obsessed with image and fans. However, not only do they use twitter, they also have Instagram, Facebook and individual Snap chats. This allows them to further connect with their fans. In addition, to promote Justin Biebers new album ‘purpose’ he released two songs ‘ where are you now?’ and ‘sorry’, first before he released his whole album, the two songs hit millions of views within a day. This was a significant marketing skill, as it gave fans and the general public an insight of what will be included in the album. The two songs he released enabled him to grow his fan base further, as non-fans were amazed by the two songs and may have been influenced to buy or check out Justin Biebers new album.
In a nutshell, marketing is such an important feature of the music industry; advertisements, interviews etc, it will empower artists and musicians to gain popularity and this will further enable people to but the artists music. Also the more popularity you have the more likely you are to be successful in the music industry. As well as this Marketing increases your chances that consumers will make a purchase of a singer’s album. It also draws attention to the everyday life of people who often end up buying a product to try it out.

Feminism "Tested" in 'the Silent Raga'

...Feminism Tested in Ameen Merchant’s ‘The Silent Raga’ Project outline submitted to the Mahatma Gandhi University in partial recognition of the requirements for the award of the Degree of Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature. Sruthi Murali Reg No: 130021007268 Supervising Teacher Ms. Mary Sapna Peter Miranda Assistant Professor Department of English St. Albert’s College Ernakulam March 2016 Introduction The Silent Raga is an eminently readable book by a first time author. This is Ameen Merchant's first published novel and he has certainly presented a rich repertoire of emotions strung to a melodious tune. He uses fine strokes and bright colors, commonly associated with miniature painting, in his portrayal of life within the constricted confines of a small community. The Silent Raga, inspired by a Tamil novel, is an exquisite blend of tradition and transition, exile and reconciliation, silence and eloquence, society and self, crisis and consciousness, where various stages of a raga’s performance in recital breathe life into the mellifluous flourish of evocative prose. Ameen Merchant was born in Bombay in 1964 and raised in Madras. The Silent Raga (Douglas & McIntyre, 2007/HarperCollins India, 2008) is his first novel. In prose that moves from the sensuous to the sublime, and that recalls the rhythms and progression of the raga, Merchant the storyteller weaves a moving tapestry about the ties that bind us and the sacrifices we must make on the way to......

M.M.Alam’s Health

...M.M.Alam’s Health; By Sadia Aslam It is in the air that Air Commodore (Rtd) M.M.Alam’s health is in critical situation. This courageous ex-fighter pilot is admitted in Combined Military Hospital. This sad news has struck me as M.M.Alam is the hero of Pakistan in the war of 1965. He is named as Ace pilot of Pakistan Air Force, because of his tremendous and unbelievable air fights in 1965’s war, when he hit down 5 fighter jets of Indian Air force in only one fly fight. In 1950’s Alam had been the part of Shaheen Air Scouts (SAS) Dhaka which aimed at the preparation of young blood to be served for PAF and make them air-minded at very tender age. There the young scouts did PT and parade at every Friday morning to keep them in accordance with the real training of military officers. After he joined PAF once during training , Alam performed a daredevil inverted flying for a very long time which scared even his own trainers in Air Traffic Control who ordered him to pull back and fly straight. This flying man was awarded with Sitara-i-Jurat as ace pilot by the Govt. of Pakistan. He is the person who born after centuries. He is the role model of youth of Pakistan giving the lesson to channelize their energies in such a way that give height to the name of their homeland as he did. We all are praying to Allah that he gets well soon and to give him some more years of good health....

...Conversion experience of Yusuf Islam Then I decided to journey to Jerusalem (as my brother had done). At Jerusalem, I went to the mosque and sat down. A man asked me what I wanted. I told him I was a Muslim. He asked what my name was. I told him, "Stevens." He was confused. I then joined the prayer, though not so successfully. Back in London, I met a sister called Nafisa. I told her I wanted to embrace Islam and she directed me to the New Regent Mosque. This was in 1977, about one and a half years after I received the Qur'an. Now I realized that I must get rid of my pride, get rid of Ibis, and face one direction. So on a Friday, after Jummah' I went to the Imam and declared my faith (the Kalmiah) at this hands. You have before you someone who had achieved fame and fortune. But guidance was something that eluded me, no matter how hard I tried, until I was shown the Qur'an. Now I realize I can get in direct contact with God, unlike Christianity or any other religion. As one Hindu lady told me, "You don't understand the Hindus. We believe in one God; we use these objects (idols) to merely concentrate." What she was saying was that in order to reach God, one has to create associates,that are idols for the purpose. But Islam removes all these barriers. The only thing that moves the believers from the disbelievers is the salat. This is the process of purification. Finally I wish to say that everything I do is for the pleasure of Allah and pray that you gain some inspirations......

Essay On Lebanese Culture

...process transcended the borders of the region and contributed to human culture in general. That would not have been possible without the Lebanese’ will to reformulate their thought and expression and transcend the constraints of taboos to keep pace with modernity. The Lebanese elites enthusiastically and prodigiously interacted with the revolutionary change in Western thought. The popular revolts in Lebanon during the 19th century reflected that interaction, when early on they advocated for a Republic and the separation of religion and state. We find what could be considered the basis of modern critical thought in the region in the writings of Farah Antoun and other 19th century pioneers and later in the writings of Gibran Khalil Gibran, Ameen Rihani, Maroun Abboud, Constantine Zuraiq, and many others. Lebanon, despite being a small country, distinguished itself throughout the Arab World as a leader in critical revivalist thought, and an advocate of liberation from the hegemony of religion and the religious establishment in the public domain. From Lebanon, the call for a tolerant Arabism free of sectarian affiliations was launched Therein, contemporary thought in the Arab World took off together with the advocacy for democratic standards and a modern, secular, civil state free of outdated social traditions and constraints and committed to the values of freedom, justice, equality, and mutual assistance. The ambitions of the Lebanese elites transcended their small country.......

Douglasian Cultural Model in Indian Context

...Comment Form for Assessed Work Introduction Today’s world is being dominated by daily innovations in technology and increasing globalization which helps organizations to spread and to operate globally in a successful way. Every organisation operating at a global level is trying to improve their financial profits. The success of such organizations greatly depends on their workforce and their decision-making capabilities. Many times the ethicality of such decisions have been questioned because of the profit driven strategies of these organizations. As Nobel Prize winner economist Milton Friedman quotes, “An executive’s responsibility generally will be to make as much money as possible while conforming to their basic rules of the society, both those embodied in law and those embodied in ethical custom.” The decision-making process and hence ethicality of the decisions in such organisations is greatly influenced by the culture of the workforce. Bartels (1967) was one of the first to note the importance of the role of culture in ethical decision-making. There are different studies which discuss the diversity of ethical decision-making based on different perspective for example, Vitell, Nwachukwu and Barnes, 1993 discuss the effect of culture on ethical decision-making with the help of Hofsted’s typology while Patel and Schaefer, 2009 discuss the same with the help of Douglasian Cultural Theory (CT) perspective in the Indian context.

...Pros & Cons of the Different Legal Structures There are three main types of firms, which include: sole proprietorship, partnerships, and corporations. When starting a business, it is very important to weigh out the pros and cons of each type to decide which type would be best suit your particular business. Each type has its advantages and disadvantages that need to be considered before deciding which would be best moving forward. I will discuss the advantages, disadvantages, and differences of each type of firm. First, there is a sole proprietorship. “A sole proprietorship is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself.” (, 2016) This type of firm is the easiest to set up and the simplest of the business structures. It is by far the most popular because of its advantages. Some of these advantages include: ease of formation, least amount of record keeping, minimal regularly controls, and advantage of double taxation. With these great advantages comes a huge disadvantage, which is, there is no legal distinction between the assets and liabilities of the business and those of its owner. In a sole proprietorship you may reap all the reward from financial benefits, but you are solely responsible for all business risks involved. In a sole proprietorship if the business fails then that one individual stands to lose all personal assets and other possessions. The second type of business is a partnership. “A partnership is a single business where......
