  1. If these are true, Prince is a scumbag.

    I saw this yesterday. What the hell is wrong with people? I don't care how rich and famous you are. Why would Prince think this was a good idea????

    Prince is a scumbag regardless. Just ask Andre Cymone and his parents who took Prince in as a kid and he screwed Andre and his parents over.

    As for this, it's pure idiocy and just a redundant example of how large a piece of garbage, the little freak from Minnesota is.

    Living proof that competency plus bad attitude convinces many that one is a genius.

    Captain Kirk should have kicked his ass as soon as the show was over! Making Prince pay money is nothing. I am a long time Prince fan, and I know that art and the artist are separate, but at least a person could be decent!
     
  11. What a douche...
     
  12. This should be amended to one of the "loaning/borrowing gear" threads.

    How about this:
    "The worst part? Douglas apparently asked Prince to sign it for him, and Prince said no."

    What a Dickhead ! Its embarassing as a minnesotan that he's one of the things people relate to when they think of the Minneapolis area. He's a weird little man and very over rated as a composer. I've heard other artists rework some of his tunes and they were much more pleasing to the ear than the original. The one thing that really burns my toast is that he is credited with creating what was propigated as "the Minneapolis sound." Anyone thats lived around here for the last 50 years or so knows that nothing could be further from the truth. Not a fan, sorry.

    Shouldn't this be in with the "your a dink for not letting someone borrow your gear at a gig" thread.

    Lot's of times things like this are Just B/S Publicity stunts but if it's true than He's definitely a feminine hygiene product.

    I been everywhere, man...
    None. At all.
    Not even in the top 10 worst stories I've heard about Purple Yoda's "behavior".

    I understand the whole warpage of personality due to a transcendental gift thing, but this guy is beyond belief, and has been for a long time. Still, here we are talking about him and selling his albums for him ;p

    I thought it was a jerk move, definitely...but oddly I am not surprised at all...

    That's the part that killed me too.

    I actually really like Prince a lot, but man what a jerk. He's notoriously a jerk so I can't say I'm surprised.
