I'm pretty sure he can manage his own health and those rumors have never been substantiated.

Does he still wear heels? I thought he was exclusively rocking flat platforms now.
If prince.org were to be made idiot proof, someone would just invent a better idiot.

Those are very cute. nod

The only 2 shoes I've had major issue with are the Frankenflops and the Naughty Librarian Lady Shoes he wore on Tavis. I know it sounds strange because people associate HELL with women's shoes, but I think his shoes have generally always been androgynous (even with the heel). The Tavis ones were straight up L-A-D-Y.

Oh, I'm sorry, make that 3...the hideous wedgy sneakers or whatever that mess he was wearing when he went to the game with Bria.

Not to nitpick, but when Prince says "These shows are a lot looser.", is that correct grammar?

Or would it be "more loose"?

I honestly don't know for sure, so I'm asking a serious question here.

He was when I saw him October. He also wore heels in March on The Tonight Show.
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

I think he might have lowered them a little, but yeah, he still wears them.

I agree with the comment here that Prince's heels have never looked girly-they just seem to be a natural extension of him. I think thats why he still wears them-it would be like losing a limb

you mean why he wears high heels again? because he wants to? makes him feel more confident perhaps? I'm not a physician or so. Can you strength all you needed muscles again after a hip injury? Would that be wise? What's the other option, that small three weel chart? I think he looks good on those flat shoes.
[b]What was his joke on Eric Clapton and his flat shoes, back in '94 or '95, in the Wembley show?
I really have to look that up.

Here's another shot:


(source: it's a detailed picture from the 1987 Hitkrant, an article on How much is Prince Spoiled?. It says ┬┤For each of his more than 25 outfits, Prince brought a different pair of high heels┬┤) I will add the full article and translation in a minute.

Personally one of my favorites, bad ass look in polkadots:


(source: 1988 REVU special on Prince: Sex, God & Love)

confused I know there's an Andre Cymone thread today, but have we somehow been transported back to 1978 or so. lol
Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.
