I do not remember many Prince rumors.

More about the music and they may be true.

That the music for Around the world in a Day album was finished before Purple Rain was even released. And that may actually be true.

And actually then the Parade stuff was done before ATWIAD was released.

I could understand why he would be bored with an album when it was just released. To the world the music was new but to Prince it was a couple years old. Fun stuff.

Supposedly, Prince had ribs removed so he could pleasure himself orally.

It is true. Prince said so. In an interview back then Prince said the smartest thing he ever did was not wait to see what would happen with Purple Rain and just record ATWIAD. I happen to think it caused ATWIAD to be rushed but.....
the music knows what your motives are when you are making it

listen to The Replacements - its good for the soul

I remember that as well. It was around winter of 84 and several girls were crying at the bus stop because Prince was dead.

Then when When Doves Cry was released they were looking crazier than Hell. lol

No, the rumor I was referring to was around 95 and early 96, people were saying he was dead.


In late 1995,our local R&B station pulled a ridiculous stunt.The DJs (Elvis and JV) reported that "Prince is Dead".This was only weeks before "TGE" was released.

It wasn't a rumor.

Alex talked about it many times. And I don't think its that far fitched, Prince had some pronounced "racial issues" shall we say, back in the 80s. And I'll leave it @ that lol

the whole rumor about him locking himself inside,lining his windows and stuff, and hating sunlight because he didnt want to get any darker...I was offended and disgusted by that one eek confused
I remember hearing that and not believing it all and believing that it was impossible 4 anyone else to...but then I saw a post from a girl in HQ who really like hated him 4 the rumor. neutral


The sad truth is, folks are still suffering from slave mentality.

Remember when Snoop's daughter came out in that reality show with an umbrella? confused It was a sad sight to see, her parents will be the reason for a life-long shaky self-esteem. It pisses me off because the lil' girl is so gorgeous and who're the ones who were putting flaws on her look? Her OWN parents disbelief

If Prince felt that way, I can't hate him for it, I'll only feel sorry,,,because I know alot of people with "color issues" sad nothing strange about that.

No I'm saying there was another reason besides Prince putting all light skinned people as figureheads in his bands. There was a another reason Alexander wasn't in the band. This comes from Alex's road crew and it's kind of a shock.


Hint: You can see it in "Under A Cherry Moon".

At least tell us what scene to watch! I can't sit through that whole movie looking for a clue! razz
I've never heard the too black rumor but I've heard various other reasons, from Alex being too heavy to his wanting too much money.

Some crazy gossip i remember:

That he was setting the chimp Bubbles up against Michael Jackson, by using telepathy. biggrin

That he did not allow Mayte to talk to him and phone him, by herself.. confused

That he threatened to beat up Sinead O' Connor, when she visited his house, and that he didnt let her leave the house for hours.

That he is a satanist, with feet like goathooves.

Dude just tell us no one is going to sit thru under the cherry moon.
The color thing with Alex might be true but, remember this was the 1980s and P was about making the Time sell he needed to get out of debt with WB.

Not saying it was right but, it is the shallow ass music business.

There were a lot of radio stations across the country reporting that. Orchestrated by Prince.

This is one stupid rumour that a friend of mine told me. We all know the TRUE reason why Prince turned Michael Jackson down for the "Bad" duet. They couldn't agree on lyrics and he didn't like Michael anyway.

That being said, he's the purple yarn my friend said he'd heard about it.

He claimed that in 1986, Prince and Michael Jackson began an affair--I know eek --and that they were so hot and heavy that Prince managed to convince Michael alter his appearance so that they looked more alike--Michael's skin lightened up and he grew his hair longer, yadda yadda yadda...
1987 rang in and talks moved onto Michael's "Bad" album and Michael wanted his ahem. "lover" to share the spotlight in the song.
Apparently a few weeks before the recording was set to begin, Michael caught Prince having an affair with an unnamed person and that Michael, distraught, severed all ties with him.

But as a last mournful act over "the one that got away" Michael wrote "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" for Prince.

mad
....

Like what the hell? I laughed my ass off at that. By far the best rumour/LIE I've ever heard.

Genre bending. Innovative. Controversial. And overall absolute genius, Prince can take anything .. I mean anything!!!! and express it with equal parts eloquence and shocking vulgarity.


Prince has never been one to shy away from controversy. Obviously, this whole lawsuit business lately is proof of that. Even if he's stopped cursing, and singing about having sex with virgins who are on the rag, he still knows how to stir stuff up.

But there was a time when his music was what ilicited all the responses. When it spoke for itself. No need for wearing assless pants, no need to make outlandish statements on magazines and other means--you could just get it from a record.

But one thing that always struck me was that Prince juxtaposed all manner of subjects, otherwise blush worthy to any other musician, effortlessly and with no sense of shame or embarassment whatsoever. It was like he pulled his nuts out of his silky lace panties and said, "Look bitches--check these hairy bad boys out. I may strut around in lace women's underwear, but I overflow with machismo!"...then boomerang his pumps at cha.

Anyways, sex, love, and spirituality -- these things are always pitted against each other in strange dualistic battles on his albums. but when viewed from afar, Prince is actually treating all these as one continuam. They are just different colors of his passion. He went from one end to the other with his songs.

Speaking of the other end, one of the things he seems to have an obsession with is the female hind quarters--perhaps even male, but that's always up for debate. But you always hear him talking about "ass" but never what he wants to do with it. It's as if he's not totally confortable with that region of the human body.
One could probably reckon that this was due to some repressed latent homosexual fantasy that was surfacing but being stiffled before it could shine in all its glory, but I propose that Prince was probably just revealing how hygenic and sometimes prissy he could be. The anus, after all, is more difficult to keep clean than vaginas and penises. Sure, Prince could easily say "I sincerely want to fuck the taste out of your mouth", but you'd never catch him say "I sincerely want to slush the poop in your ass with my dick"--There's a line that even Prince wont cross, especially if it involves hygiene.

His obsession with hygiene is apparent in his interview with Oprah Winfrey. When she asked him if he always dressed nice, he replied, "On a normal day I'm clean". Now obviously, he's being hip with lingo here, cause being "clean" also means to look sharp, but let's not kid ourselves here--Prince loves double meaning. He obviously means that on a normal day he keeps his ass fresh.

But if you think about it, the asshole or anus is just the other opening of a very long tube leading to your mouth. And in between there's digestion. Digestion of the words, the ideas, the very visualizations that flow throughout his work. Even when he says "Dont hate me cause Im beautiful", he says it like he's got food in his mouth. He goes further in that very same song (Pretty man) and says "Maceo--can U blow?" , which again HAS A DOUBLE MEANING! Always with the double meaning. But you can also hear this in many many songs. In Poom Poom Poom, he sings the chorus as if he's taking a massive dump, and he even does the Poom Poom rap like he's chewing on something. Its as if ALL bodily functions are not sacred to Prince. They're all worthy of expression.


And express he does. It was said once in some magazine that where Marvin Gaye cracked the bedroom door open a wee bit with "Let's Get it On", Prince tore that bitch off it's hinges!

I can't believe, all the things people say! CONTROVERSY..

Am I Black or White?
Am I Straight or Gay? CONTROVERSY...

Do I believe in GOD?

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallow be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day, Our daily bread, and forgive us Our tresspasses
As we forgive those, that tresspass against us.
And lead Us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine, Is the Kingdom, and The Power, and The Glory, Forever, and Ever....

Too many to mention actually. Here are a few dating as far back as 1981 and not past 1984:
Prince is heavily into the occult
Prince is obssessed with the numbers 666
Prince goes to bed with his heels on. Women have said that they have NEVER seen Prince's feet.
In Prince's house, he had mirrors everywhere. So he can constantly see himself. Brown Mark was at Prince's house and he swore he didn't see Prince's reflection in the mirror.
Prince has hidden images in his photos
Purple Rain means Purple Reign
The reason Prince put a picture of his eye in the center of the record on the 1999 album was to cast a spell on everyone who listened to it.
Prince would go without sleep for days at a time
Prince could and would change his appearance at will. As in a shapeshifter.
Prince performed astral travel. He would appear and then disappear.
He had a statue of a dwarf or a gnome in his living room. People said that his eyes moved.
SynthiaRose said "I'm in love with blackguitaristz. Especially when he talks about Hendrix."
nammie "What BGZ says I believe. I have the biggest crush on him."

This one is true. P said it was a gift from a friend but that some people were scared of it so he moved it from the living room to a guest room. Never heard about the moving eye thing though...

Yeah, I read that too. I think it was in one of his Rolling Stone interviews. But I also heard that the real reason it scared folks was because they said it's eyes would move.
