I think Jesse managed to get out of Prince´s shadow very early in his career and his own albums went gold in the mid 80s. He was a respected artist in his own right and much more than just a protegé act. I loved his music back then and think he´s contributed a lot to the Minneapolis Sound but it´s frustrating to see that he just can´t let go of old grievances. He doesn´t really have to be like this and is just making things worse.

I remember an article from the late 80s about Jesse Johnson and the headline read:"Prince is an asshole!".

I mean, they´ve had their issues back then but is it really necessary to be like that in 2019 ?

It was nice to see him on tour and on stage with D´Angelo. Jesse should focus on the here and now and let go of the past. I don´t really care if he shed a tear at the end of the show. Prince is dead and dude still feels the need to talk about the tension they had back then.

Move on.

We didn’t get to hear the video because it was taken down the same day. It has resurfaced. For those who want to hear it with your own two ears here it is.

Jesse is talking about his Bunker shows from 2017 so it is clearly from late 2017 to 2018. It does not matter how this was recorded he is clear in his words expressing how he really feels about Prince. And that he doesn’t want anything to do with that "Celebration bs" as he puts it. He also says he does not want anything to do with Prince sh*t, to be under that banner. But a year later he is headlining Celebration 2019 in Prince’s home.

Sound like a combination of bravado with the help of liqueur. Obviously he went out there and ate a heaping serving of humble pie.

I've ALWAYS respected Jesse for his honesty. At least he is the only one that has the balls to stand up in PP and tell THE TRUTH about his relationship with Prince (r.i.p.).Plus how he REALLY feels. It takes a REAL man do do that.#TEAMJESSE

The truth? I think you mean his truth, or a better word would be opinion.

Since he is telling 'his' truth, did he mention anything about a gun that he pulled on his ex and her mom?

There is a time and place for everything. Some people never made it as far as Jesse and they are not lashing out. He needs to move on and take responsibility on what went go with his career. Prince success came at a big price. Prince busted his butt to keep Paisley Park open all these years. I always give people the side eye when they think someone owns them something. He fees that bad about Prince but he is getting a check from Paisley Park.

Prince was upset with WB, artists in general are upset with the music industry and streaming. We feel screwed by someone and we all have our moments when we rant. Especially in a place where we may have had a drink or two. Jesse is human like all of us. Only difference is he is famous and someone taped something off the record.

That is true. We all rant and vent but I don't understand why he is upset. He had a better run than some people who never had half the chance he has had. Was he drinking again at celebration this year when he was saying similar things like this tape. He feels Prince did him wrong. He claiming Prince blackballed him and took money from his children but he is on Prince's platform getting paid. He still on this 1980's bull. I not saying he can't say how he feels about Prince but how you going to get a check based on him knowing and working with Prince but want to paint him like a bad guy. At the end of the day people are going to believe what they want no matter what.

He could try not being a hypocrit first of all since the comments on that recording indicate he really despises Prince. That kind of behavior is also called being two-faced. And he could also talk about his shit somewhere else, like a therapist's office. NOT in Prince's house during an event specifically held to honor Prince. Tacky and messy.

If Jesse would have smiled and played and not said anyhting at PP he would have still gotten the same criticism here.

Jesse is getting criticized about what HE said about Prince on the recording, and then continuing it at Prince's house.


Jesse should have never been invited to attend, but since he was he should have turned them downed seeing as he feels as he does. But the almighty $$ won out and he's greedy.

No, he doesn't have balls. Saying the things while P was alive, would've been ballsy, going to PP when P reached out and then tell his "brother" what his problem is, would've been ballsy. What he did is not and never will be ballsy. He comes off as this whiny, greedy lil b***h he apparently is. ALso, you say #TEAMJESS when you claimed here multiple times you're loyal to Prince and think so highly of him?

Maybe Jesse should have saved it all for a book deal like Morris.

I’d buy it. He doesn’t have to justify how he feels to me. We don’t tell someone their feelings are wrong, we try and understand them. And for all we know Kirk was getting a lot of NO THANKS from other talent he tried to book.

I understand how some are offended by what Jesse said but we don’t any of us know the entire story.

Well that's a miracle in itself, isn't it, since he hasn't stfu about it for what...30 yrs now? And I'd say that since this recording came out again after having disappeared that there are some people he's really pissed off about this whole thing aside from P's fans. He's entitled to feel the way he feels but he's not entitled to drop that shit on Prince fans. And PP was WRONG to ask and allow him to appear at the celebration event. That twists the meaning of the event. If he needs a shoulder to cry on, let him find a therapist. That's what they do for a living.

highfive What you said here is extremely easy to understand and figure out about this whole mess, yet it has to be spelled out apparently for those who can't figure it out. What I'll add that you didn't say is that no doubt he got a cheap thrill out of dissing P right in PP in front of his fans. He's an idiot and so are those who keep making excuses for his bad behavior.

Exactly. I'm just as mad at the fans who sat there and did nothing while he was on his rant at P's house. In fact I'm tired of these 'fans' holding up for these ASSociates spewing this crap against Prince. It's not Prince's fault that they didn't make anything out of their life, or what they did make out of their life wasn't good enough for them. Jesse's fake tears for a fake person.

Next ALL Jesse(whom i've seen perform live MANY times including with D'angelo whom he has known since he was a boy). has to do is play Prince's(r.i.p.) recording of the voicemail message Prince(r.i.p.) left him two weeks before he transitioned. It would close the speculation for good.

That would be fantastic to hear, maybe since you are so close to him you can tell him to release it. Otherwise it's just hearsay.
