101 WORST MISTAKES MADE BY PRINCE

Alright all you purple junkies don't get your jock straps and brassiers in a knot. This is not a diss thread but merely an acknowledgement of where our beloved Prince has gone off what appeared to be a gold paved path of success. In other words...name some shit Prince did that made you go "What's wrong with this mutherfucker??" biggrin

I'll start...

-His departure from The Revolution wasn't the mistake,,,it was surrounding himself with those opportunist "yes men" that was the mistake.

-That "Rap" period disbelief

-And finally, equating musical success to $ which brought him to thise sad state.

*Releasing the wrong singles,which killed the momentum of several albums.

*Deciding that he was capable of directing movies disbelief

*Paisley Park Records---the label started off promisingly,with great records by The Family,Mazarati and Sheila E,but things quickly went downhill when the label started releasing crap like Carmen Elektra,Good Question and TC Ellis.Was anyone truly surprised when Warners shut down the label in 1994?

*Not bringing his SOTT tour to the States---huge blunder.

now, hang on... UTCM holds together as a film. There are a few editing errors, but the sequencing of the mpvie is very good. As an editor and a director as far as story is concerned, Prince works... he is not, however, a person who can direct people... hence the horrific moments in UTCM... BUT without his 'feel' for the film, we wouldn't have had some of the film's most memorable moments... 'mirror mirror seventeen-fold'... 'give her that bela lugosi look'... 'hmmm, now you've been thinking of that all night'... aw.... you know the bits i mean!

I actually like "Cherry Moon" for what it is,but I wonder how it would have looked if it had a real director? It might have looked alot more professional.

1. limited release of lotusflow3r
2. Not dropping an album right after superbowl performance
3. snubbing guitar hero
4. the "slave" era
5. fighting his vids on the net.I know they r his, but many fans were converted via such access..if u think you're losing $$$ just consider it a small price for the many fans it turns over...you have more to gain that way.
6.The bloody do-rag on his head.
7. unreleased "guitar" video..we wanted the entire thing...would've been a hit.
better yet if it was made and released the day after his RRHOF performance.
8.STOP doing bloody covers!!! you are PRINCE ! the most original man in music (well i used to brag to my friends bout that back in da day)...its bad enough that he is NOT groundbreaking anymore..but its a new low Prince of all person "covering "YOU should be covered ..not the other way around.

Come On Desiree...Even if Prince has made career mistakes according to his followers does not mean that Prince has left any "Golden Path." Prince has been keepin' on his way and that is still gold and silver lined. cool
