This is a very good question that I have had recently too.

I have been working on a project for about 2 years and the final result of the labor is a week away. What we have made for Prince is way too expensive to just send out and cross fingers that he will receive it.

Prince is always on the move, and to pinpoint where he will be is about impossible. We were thinking that Paisley Park was probobly our best bet to communicate, but if anyone else has a better thought on the subject that would be helpful.



Hey Mike1, the glass is half full. . . not half empty.
Prince has to "give a shit" about what makes him who he is. . HIS FANS.

I have an interesting incident to relate.
I live in India.

I had sent my wedding card to Prince's address last year,
I did not have his complete address so I simply wrote "Prince and Manuella, Bridle Path, Toronto, Canada",
It came back to me a few months later with many comments and scribbles from the Canadian Post guys.
The first scribble was a big question mark, then some other person with a pencil had commented "Address ?" (if I remember correctly !), then someone had put an arrow mark and written "The singer Prince".
Then there was a comment "Refused by addressee".
SO there you have it, it actually did reach Prince's house (thanks to Canadian Post) but was refused by his staff maybe.
SO I deduct from the incident that he does not encourage direct mail.
I had sent one card at the Paisley Park address too but got no reply though.
I have kept the card unopened somewhere, maybe I should dig it out, maybe it becomes a collector item one day - a letter / card that managed to reach Prince's house smile

With the many fans that P has, what makes u think that he could possibly read his fan mail? There would be no time for making music. I would say he has his fan mail staffers handle it, and if there is anything from a fan that might be truly significant, then possibly P will read it. But I wouldn't count on it.

BTW, Prince wouldn't have hell to see in his eyes for anybody, JWs don't believe in hell unless they found out the truth.

Unsolicited mail received by Paisley Park will either be refused and returned to sender, or is discarded - unopened and unread.

at times, he has
sometimes more than other times
but i'd think the easiest thing to send him would be words
and the easiest way to have them received is through the internet
and the best time is after a televised performance
or a recent event centering around him
he doesn't do all that hard work for nothing
he creates the cause and then looks for the effect
he watches
he likes to teach and learn
ever notice that half the things he says are questions?
even when he thinks he knows the answers
he wants to hear what others say
big-in: be'in a friend +
peace

I'm sure Prince deeply appreciates all his fans and the things we have to say to him but Prince really doesn't have the time to read everyone's letters. I wouldn't take it personally if something got sent back or he never got it. Lots of people love him...it would be impossible to acknowledge everyone.

***** I agree with what u said. I think 2 that the easiest way Prince reads our words is through internet so I didnt get mad at him when I got back my mail. It was a kind of joke...I had asked 4 ONA music sheets that dont exist. Therefore, there was an ANGEL suggesting me chords used so I cant complain.... wink

I have the sensation that Prince is a good listener, 4 this reason he makes alot of questions, not necessarly 4 having an answer.....

Yeah right; Prince appreciative?

No way; don't kid yourself. Prince ONLY cares about God, himself and music; that's it!

You are just a 'banished one' to him!

I once wrote Larry asking him what were the chances that he could pass my letter onto Prince.
Larry wrote back, responding,
"One in a million".

Paisley Park actually has a full-time staff of 18 dwarves from Eastern Europe that spent all day collating and sorting his fanmail, before the topless female fan pics and candy are shipped by carrier pigeon to Prince himself.

Didn't he use to pass them out to his friends so they could all have a good laugh?
News: Prince pulls his head out his ass in the last moment.
Bad News: Prince wasted too much quality time doing so.
You have those internalized issues because you want to, you like to, stop.
