Who here hated Prince at one time, but learned to like him?

I was curious, because many Prince fans seem to come from this lot, because they don't really know how good Prince is, because they believe the hype from the press and stuff.
All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

That's me. I hated and made fun of prince until 7th grade. I heard my bro's stereo playing "Thunder." I started grooving 2 it - stole the CD and listened to it "undercover" when I wasn't listening to Warren G and Snoop Dogg - then I came out of the closet with it around the same time Come came out - and I was an open fan after that. Crazy how u let societal stereotypes influence u

I fell in love with Prince's first photo
when I was in the 10th grade. love Then I saw him on t.v. singing IWBYL and went hmmm confuse rolleyes and decided I really couldn't stand him.
It wasn't until Private Joy that he pulled me back in and by the time 1999 came round I was totally digging his sound. Purple Rain is what took me over the edge and I've been a loyal, dedicated listener since. music

same boat.
News: Prince pulls his head out his ass in the last moment.
Bad News: Prince wasted too much quality time doing so.

Didn't know much about him before that.

I was scared some of Prince at first when I thought he was gay man, but when I found out he was hetero man I grow to love him deep. I am so glad now to have Prince.

Careful Henrik ... maybe it was just a translation thing, but saying you're SCARED of someone coz you think they are gay could get you shot around these parts.

Hope you didn't mean it that way

I find it silly when people say they "hate so and so", "hate michael jackson" as if they know these people, "hate that david bowie" u know, its just stupid. There are musicians i dont like simply because its not the music i listen to them, but hating someone u've never met is silly.

Also hating someone because they are gay or sing with a high voice should b illegal, in fact, in some countries thats called discrimination and u can b locked up!

I didn't hate him, but I didn't like him much either, because when I was a kid I liked heavy Metal, like a lot of kids back then. Actually, I had a bias against black music, thought it was too wimpy, until I woke up and saw Purple Rain, but not being a huge fan until around Sign O The Times, which really woke me up to how great he was. Thought at the time that PR was gonna be a fluke, as a lot of music usually ends up becoming, but I found out I was wrong, and now I cannot get enough of the little poofer. His last few albums have been lame, but here's hoping he can get his act together and be the Prince I first grew to love.

There's no country that criminally prosecutes disrimination lol come on now - "hate" is obviously being used in this context with a much more watered down connotation. Saying I "hated" Prince, and I "hated" my abusive step-father - obviously mean 2 separate things.

I think I know what you are saying HenrikLarshole, and it's not offensive to me, if that makes you feel any better. When I saw a picture of Prince when browsing the music stores in the early 80s, I was pretty sure I wouldn't like the little fella's music. The album 1999 proved me wrong.
