Being a musician and being a performer are not mutually exclusive. The term for a musician who writes (popular) music is a songwriter. A musician who performs a piece is a performer. A musician who co-ordinates large groups of performers is a conductor. They are all musicians.

Film careers and music careers are vastly different. A musician implies than you write your own music. In the videos you posted, they were performing
someone else's music.
They're performers no matter how you look at it.
If you enjoy quibbling over terminology, I might point out your unorthodox classification of acting and lap-dancing as 'professions'.

They may want to keep it as a hobby? I often hear hobbies are best left as hobbies because once they're taken up professionally, they are no longer enjoyable. I can imagine why people say this, but I for one would absolutely love to take music up professionally!
"True musician"? There's no such thing. All musicians are true musicians, it's just a matter of how they use their ability and if they use it to their full potential.
