Prince Calls Today Show

Prince just called the Today Show.

Al Roker shed a single tear knowing that he could never get as close to Prince as this beautiful woman.

A phone call? I guess it's too much trouble to fly out there and actually perform a couple of songs to promote the album and single.

Easy to do, since that wasn't actually in the clip they put on twitter.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

Yes, I missed the part about performing in the future. He should have performed 2 weeks ago, though. Not just on the today show, but on as many shows as he can. Some day I would like to see what would happen if he put full, sustained effort into promoting a new album and associated singles.

The Tidal concert being in Brooklyn Oct. 20th right when Judith Hill's album is coming out makes me think the Today show appearance will be around then. Prince wants to promote others moreso than himself. So some promotion for HITNRUN n some promotion for Judith at the same time.

And he has done a great job evangelizing Tidal... Funny how others artists with stakes in the Co dont do the same

She was Lawrence O'Donnell's girlfriend. I posted the article here a while back but I don't know if she still is.

Maybe she's the one who left Prince alone on his birthday when he burned his pasta in the song June? eek

Either way if they are close friends and talk every day Lawrence better watch out.... lol

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

What are you talking about? He has(up until recently)always promoted his albums. MTV Cherry Moon contest, TRL, VMA, Letterman, Leno, Grammy's, Oscars, Golden Globes, Bandstand, Soul Train, Solid Gold, Midnight Special, Billboard Music Awards, I heart radio, Fallon. Methinks you have selective memory my friend.

Yes of course I mentioned all of the promotion in his career. That was the whole point. You said P has NEVER promoted any of his albums. It doesn't matter if it's one appearance or 12, It's all still promotion.

LMFAO. Are you serious? U think that Prince (or any other artist) show up to these shows, award appearances, etc. out of the goodness of their hearts or something? They have something to promote. Jesus, the lengths fams go to to defend Prince's nonsence is laughable.
