My Tribute To Prince
My dearest Shaynel,

I see the Sign “O” the Times and you need to know that I Adore you and I Wanna Be Your Lover. When we met in The Same December in 1999 on Alphabet St., it was Automatic--I could tell that you were one of The Beautiful Ones—probably The Most Beautiful Girl in The World. I’ll never forget thinking that U Got the Look in your Raspberry Beret and Diamonds and Pearls. While we stood in the Soft and Wet Purple Rain, I felt Delirious but I knew that I had A Case of You, and that someday I Would Die For 4 U. It was sort of a Controversy because I was Scandalous, had a Dirty Mind, lived the Pop Life and was a Partyman.

When I thought about The Future, I always wanted an International Lover. I dreamed of a Lady Cab Driver that would help me Gett Off in a Little Red Corvette. In the Dark, we would Kiss and drive through Erotic City, park under the Graffiti Bridge and you would Do Me Baby in Paisley Park. If you were Willing and Able, we could discuss our Strange Relationship Under The Cherry Moon. We could talk about so many things- like The Cross, our Sexuality and why Sometimes It Snows in April.

Pop superstar Prince showed his appreciation for his young collaborator Janelle Monae by sending a singing telegram and flowers to her dressing room at a recent gig.

The Purple Rain hitmaker collaborated with soul star Monae on a track for her new album The Electric Lady and he celebrated the record's release this month (Sep13) by arranging a special surprise for the singer.

In video footage filmed for a Revolt Tv documentary, Monae is seen looking shocked to find a young man in her dressing room holding a card and flowers and singing to her.

The messenger was reciting Prince's hit Kiss, which had been re-written as a personal tribute to Monae, but she didn't realise the significance of the singing telegram until she asked him, "So where did you come from?"

He replied, "I came from Big Apple Singing Telegrams and this is from Prince" before handing her the card featuring the star's personalised message. She gasped with delight before saying, "Oh my God. Prince sent you here? Are you f**king kidding me? Oh my God... Prince sent you here! He wrote this too?... Wow this is a message from Prince."

Twitter has been served a DMCA copyright complaint for content that was published using the Vine video platform it acquired and launched earlier this year.

Twitter openly shares how many DMCA takedown notices it gets from copyright holders concerned with content shared on Twitter (or in this case, one of its third-party products), and where the complaints are coming from, on a site called Chilling Effects.

In this particular case, the takedown request came from NPG Records, the 20-year old record label owned by Prince. ‘NPG’ is short for New Power Generation, the name of the artist’s former backing band.

A representative of NPG Records wrote to Twitter to say eight video clips hosted on Vine contained “unauthorized recordings” and “unauthorized synchronizations” and asked the company to remove them immediately.

The request was sent on March 22, 2013.

The links to the Vine clips were included in the letter and no longer lead to playable videos, so it’s safe to assume Twitter followed up on the NPG representative’s request rather swiftly.

Prince and Vivendi SA have settled a lawsuit filed by a perfume and cosmetics manufacturer who accused the musician and his then-label (Universal Music Group) of breaching a contract to promote two products.

According to Bloomberg, Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics, a company based in Pennsylvania, sued the musician and UMG in New York State Supreme Court in November 2008, seeking minimum $100,000 in damages.
The suit claimed Prince didn't follow through on contracts to help market perfumes using his name, likeness and the name of his 2006 album 3121. A judge subsequently ordered the musician to pay nearly $4 million in April 2012 to the company for losses, but denying the company punitive and lost-profit damages.

The Hollywood Reporter stated problems arose immediately after the deal was signed, with Prince refusing to do any promotional work or interviews related to the product. The musician argued that one day after the licensing deal was signed between Revelations and Universal Music he told the perfume company he wouldn't give interviews for the launch party nor provide photographs to accompany the press release.

It looks like the Artist Formerly Known as Prince might have to change his title to the Witness Formerly Known as Prince!

Word on the street is the Purple Rain singer could be called to court to testify in Michael Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.

To refresh your memories, the Jackson family is suing the insurance company for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted with involuntary manslaughter after giving the King of Pop a lethal dosage of medication.

A source says Katherine Jackson’s legal team could call on Prince due to the fact that he also had a negative experience with AEG that might be useful in their case.

Sadly, the two pop icons never collaborated and as far we know, they never really had a personal relationship, so it’s a bit shocking to hear his name thrown into the mix. But apparently he’s just one of nearly a hundred witnesses Jackson’s legal team has lined up for the trial!

We're no legal experts, but that sounds like WAY too many witnesses!

Questlove is in a large dressing room backstage at Carnegie Hall, getting his Afro picked out before going onstage to lead a concert honoring the music of his all-time favorite recording artist, Prince. His mother is sitting beside him, beaming at her boy. Back when Quest, now the Roots drummer and Jimmy Fallon bandleader, was a teenager, she and his father only listened to Christian radio and behaved like “the black Ned and Maude Flanders,” he writes in his upcoming memoir, Mo’ Meta Blues: The World According to Questlove. When she found Prince records in his room, she would throw them out. “When Prince’s 1999 came out,” he writes, “it touched off a saga that lasted half a decade. I would say, conservatively, that I purchased that record eight times between 1982, when it first came out, and 1987, when I stopped getting on punishment for having it.”

The Carnegie Hall concert falls in the middle of a sort of ad hoc Prince festival in Questlove’s life. He hosted Prince March 1 on Fallon for a performance of “Screwdriver,” one of several great new songs (Prince may be preparing the release of a new album, and has also sent a new theme to his...

Standing alone outside the Palace nightclub, Steve Fargnoli looked like the saddest man in Hollywood.

He'd devoted two years to bringing Prince's dream, "Purple Rain," to the silver screen. But following the premiere and after-party July 26, 1984, Prince's manager was pessimistic about this maverick rock movie with a first-time star (Prince), first-time director (Albert Magnoli) and first-time producers (Fargnoli and his partners), made in Minneapolis of all places.

I tried to be encouraging, mentioning a few early glowing reviews and the cavalcade of A-list celebs who reacted enthusiastically at the Grauman's Chinese Theater premiere -- Eddie Murphy, Pee Wee Herman, Christopher Reeve, Morgan Fairchild, Kevin Bacon and the king of Hollywood himself, Steven Spielberg, as well as music stars John Mellencamp, Kiss, Lionel Richie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, the Talking Heads, Rickie Lee Jones and Little Richard.

Fargnoli fretted until he saw the box office report four days later: "Purple Rain" topped "Ghostbusters" as the nation's highest-grossing film.

Touré explores the music of his generation and Prince

Everyone at this table is working on a book, even if some of us just in the thinking stage, I’m just fortunate to have finished one that comes out tomorrow called I Would Die 4 U: Why Prince Became An Icon.

I wrote it because Prince is one of the most important artists of our time with a career that wrestled with spiritual imperative and the sexual impulse, with Saturday night and Sunday morning, and wondering if the two can be merged in one life or in one song.

His canon asks: Can we have both reverence for God and the fulfillment of the rawest of carnal desires? His sexuality stands out for many, and rightly so, but his spirituality was serious and solemn—he opens the album “Purple Rain,” his magnum opus, with a sermon. “Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” He concludes that, in this life, things are much harder than in the afterworld because in this life you’re not as close to God as you will be, you’re on your own.

Have you ever heard about her ? No ? Me too until today.

Anna Garcia a.k.a Anna Fantastic a name which was given to her by Prince. Anna born in London England from Spanish and Italian decent.Coming from a musical family Anna was exposed to a variety of musical genres from Motown to Madonna. Her mother was a singer and her uncles all played in bands through out the local music scene from London to Australia. Bolstered by those influences, Anna began gravitating towards pop and R&B.

Blessed with keen intelligence and stunning good looks, Anna Fantastic could have chosen any number of career paths. yet always knew her future had in store for her. "I always knew that music was what I was going to do," You can here that desire in Anna's voice. It's a voice that's sweet, sassy and sultry with a hint of bad girl edge. Anna Fantastic's brand of soul is both infectious and intoxicating. With the love of music and the desire to perform driving here, Anna Fantastic at the age of 10 began studing vocal and dance at the world renowned Sylvia Young theatre School of London.

We all know, Prince is a little bit strange.

Prince has spoken of a crucial "Dark night of the soul, when a lot of things happened all in a few hours" and described a vision of a vast field with the letters G-O-D hovering overhead. He would refer to that night, Tuesday December 1st as "Blue Tuesday" in the Lovesexy Programme.


"I suddenly realised that we can die at any moment", he said. "And we'd be judged by the last thing". Prince indicated in the programme liner notes that he realised that the Black Album was a work of hate and that realising it would be wrong. he believed that "Spooky Electric", which can be considered the dark side of his persona or a symbol of Satan himself, convinced him to create this thing of 'evil'. Prince eventually attributed his last minute decision to shelve the black album to god and the 'lovesexy spirit', "the feeling you get when you fall in love, not with a girl or boy but the heavens above"

Regardless of Prince's self-made mythology, it is alleged amongst some close associates that his decision to cancel the realse was directly influenced by an experiment with the drug ecstacy.

I came across this crap on the web. It's the weirdest prince story I ever heard. Check this out

Prince is Dead (PrID)

After filming "Purple Rain", on April 7, 1985, near the end of the "Purple Rain" Tour, Prince Rogers Nelson died in a tragic motorcycle accident. Considering the success of "Purple Rain" and the fact that Prince was reaching his peak at the time of his demise, those close to him made the decision to replace him with a double, heavily modified with cosmetic surgery. Government ties ensured that the secret remained buried.

This double differed from Prince in several ways:

He was shorter.
He was a bit more pale skinned.
He was a devout Jehovah's Witness with reservations about singing "dirty songs".
His voice is close, but not identical to the original's.
Prince had a great sense of humor. The new one didn't take a joke very well.
The new one is younger by several years (how many is uncertain
