Given to excessive outward display.

I don't know if this makes me a bad person, but I always think it's really pretentious when one refers to himself as an artist.

Doesn't it seem that a respectable artist must be called an artist by others? Quandaries like this beg the question, "Is it just me?"

Perhaps a more appropriate query would be, "Why does this stuff keep me up at night?"

What brought this quandry on? Did Prince/the artist formerly known as Prince/Prince do something? Or is he just the example that came to mind?

No, it has nothing to do with him. Someone told me, "Well, as an artist, I feel the need to diversify my creative outlets" or some crap like that. It just made me chuckle. Artist. Heh.
