When you sue your fans for running a fan mag (Uptown) or a fan site (Housequake) , you're a dick to your fans.

I bet he goes through the express lane at grocery stores with more than 10 items. Insensitive bastard.

He's also pretty damn awesome to his fans. Opening up Paisley Park for concerts all the time (at least back in the day). And Ive eaten tons of the man's Doritos. Sure, they were Cool Ranch. But I still appreciated it.

He didn't have to answer one question on FB. He didn't have to play any songs during the yahoo live nation stream. There's a lot of stuff that he does that I don't see many other artist do for their fans. He can be a major Ding-ding, but he also does stuff others don't. lol

Prince has not lived in the real world since he was a teen. Never went to college, never had a job and thus has very little respect for regular folk. He only respects a few other musicians and perhaps other creative types. Its not unlike uber elite athletes. He's shown very little interest in the non-music world, has few friends and for all the love songs hes written, never did seem to find his soulmate. Its kinda sad when you think bout it. Maybe he's turned a corner now but I thought he did with Emancipation and Mayte and then tragedy stuck. Well see but perhaps this time well get a more grounded Prince. His music seems to suggest so.

I've thought the same on occassion and wondered how Prince's life and music would be different if his son had survived and / or if he had a successful marriage.

Prince has never done anything to me. I don't know him and he doesn't know me either. I buy his music and he gets a percentage of what I pay for them. That is the extent of our involvement.

When eye go 2 a Prince concert or related event it's all heart up in the house but when eye log onto this site and the miasma of bitchiness is completely overwhelming!

That probably has a lot to do with being from a broken home. Everyday life sucked, so he created an ideal world in his music. Uptown, Paisley Park ... A lot of Prince's songs are about finding Utopia. He's tried family life, he's tried Jehova. I think we can also see Art Official Age in that light.

Now that is cool. I'm jelly. I one day hope to visit Paisley Park before I climb that Ladder.

When I saw Prince in '98 I thought it was cool he brought a bunch of ppl on stage during Sleep Around. Older ladies, little kids dancing all around him. Not many artists do that. That's the same show he ended with an exact album version of When Doves Cry... Mind. Blown.

To be fair, yeah he does some bad stuff but I think thats just his personality, maybe the fact he has been surrounded by people who bow down to him for so long now he's just used to getting his own way,

But then he also does some great stuff, like already mentioned with Paisley, he doesnt have to open it up for people to be able to get the chance to go in.

And to be fair, I reckon he may have had to really push Warner Brothers to get Plectrum electrum out there for the fans, I'd have thought they would have been happier just putting out AOA at the time.

I think for all the bad he can do, he does maybe show glimpses of actually caring.

Like the UK shows, he didnt have to do 2/3 shows a night but he did gauged on the queue outside to try and get everyone in to see the show. They wasnt massively profitable so it probably had little bearing in that respect money wise.

He doesnt owe us anything, and I think alot tend to forget that.
