Prince’s New Website To Be Unveiled Tonight!

http://www.drfunkenberry....d-tonight/


[Subject title changed, Text inserted - luv4u]



And Tonight, the unveiling…

More prized than a trip to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory are the invitations granted for tonight’s unveiling of Prince’s latest galactic web project, lotusflow3r.com . Press invitees include Steve Appleford of Rolling Stone; Benjamin Trott from Six Apart; Kat Corbett from KROQ; Danny Shea and Katherine Thomson, music and entertainment editors from The Huffington Post; Emily McKay from NME and Edna Gunderson of USA Today. Also invited to the secret soiree are 3 select Purple Ticket winners, whose names have been withheld to protect what’s left of their innocence.

The plan since the beginning has been to show the work to the press today, while anticipation builds for the official opening. Following the special preview, guests will be treated to an hour-long concert in the funkiest house in the Hills. After that, we hear the band plans to crash Clive Davis’ party with an Alicia Keys joint they’ve rearranged.

With a beginning like this, no doubt this year is about to be stellar!

(This sounds really fun. Purple ticket holders aka lucky dogs. Can’t wait to hear about it.)-DR.FB
We are all so full of doody here

Ummm, this sentence sounds troubling...

"The plan since the beginning has been to show the work to the press today, while anticipation builds for the official opening."

Are the press just seeing it earlier in the day OR are the press the only ones seeing it today?

Now, that all might matter if Prince still had some class
Or was musically fit to wipe his former self's ass
But as that's not the case, as long as he's at the helm
Any venture of Prince's will no doubt underwhelm

That's the $77 question?

It appears that the site will only be unveiled to the press today, but I hope I

am really, really wrong. Why have the press write about the site and spoil all

the surprises before a future official launch?

No matter what legal issues, bands who can't use names formerly given to them or general snarkyness, I'm glad Prince has chosen to come back and play in cyberspace. I hope lotusflow3r.com will provide the same kind of magnetic north that there seemed to be with his other sites (not counting 3121, cuz blogs are not websites.) I'm looking forward to it.
