Have You Ever Tried To Support or Defend Prince...Here At The Org!?

And what was the result? Did you get a hyper critical breakdown about any real or perceived wrong he's done? What's that saying, you know the one I mean... "Ye without sin, cast the first stone? Words to live by if you ask me. Recently I was confronted with this comment: "Oh you have no idea I've heard he OWES lots of people!" My response was, Um...and the person you HEARD this from knows this how??? And their point is....?? Honestly everyone I know, myself included, owes someone something. If that person was refering to closed websites and t-shirts, I find it slightly hypocritcal. I wonder how much they owe him for all of the "free" music they have. IMHO, they should just letitgo...already. Just leave well enough alone and be happy no one has access to their hard drives. He's given over 30 years of the most amazing and inspirational music to them. I've never seen anything like this and he deserves much better treatment from them. Well I don't have to tell you what happened to me after making that statement. Am I the only one that's had this experience? Just a thought...you get a better result by smiling at someone than you'll ever get by spitting at them. Have a great day!

The people that know he owes money are the ones he owes money to, not some 3rd party reporting it. Pioneer Press' huge article in the 90's called Purple Drain had example after example of it. The guy who shot all the D&P footage was never fully paid for his extensive work. Even the people who made Prince's silly canes he carried around while sucking on a lollipop in public were owed hundreds of dollars that were never paid. Prince used to say "I own Paisley Park. All I have to do is pay the light bill." Apparently he forgot all the other bills. Brownmark was promised, BY PRINCE, that he'd make "a lot of money" if Mark stayed around for the Hit N' Run (Parade) tour. Prince ended up paying him $3000 a week. Sounds like a lot to you and me, but to a musician, it's paltry. Especially not just a touring musician, but an actual member of the band. Mark turned down touring with Stevie Nicks, which offered over twice that much, just as a touring player, to stay with Prince.

As far as Lotus, if you choose to overlook the obvious that Prince's promises weren't fulfilled, then you have your reward. He promised, at minimum, a high quality t-shirt. There are still people, a full year later, who haven't gotten that. The album is there for download, IF you join. So you pay $77 for a 3-disk album? IN WHAT FUCKING UNIVERSE? Then the album is also available in stores for another $12. So now Prince has about $89 of your money, for the SAME product (sans 1 track difference). The site also promises 'members only concert tickets'. What concert tour has he been on lately? Did he dole out member only tickets for Montreaux Jazz Festival? How about those Paris shows? What about the TV show he did later in the year, because the last time I checked, most any TV show in the world is free to attend. People don't PAY to go watch a taping of a TV show. Never have, never will.

If someone cheated you, then told you to just let it go...would you? Are you really that much of a good puppy to just roll over? Thought not.

Just leave well enough alone and be happy no one has access to their hard drives. He's given over 30 years of the most amazing and inspirational music to them. I've never seen anything like this and he deserves much better treatment from them. Well I don't have to tell you what happened to me after making that statement. Am I the only one that's had this experience? Just a thought...you get a better result by smiling at someone than you'll ever get by spitting at them.

If all was well, and it was enough, then there'd be nothing to leave alone. Fans have smiled at, stuck with, and endured Prince and his missed sensibilities over the years. Endless aborted projects, half truths, empty promises, and missteps on his part have lent to the justified angst people have with him. It's one thing to be frustrated that The Revolution broke up, or that Roadhouse Garden was never released, but it's another to have reasonable and suitable gripes with a person who is conducting business. "Music and art don't mix", he said. It can work together, when the artist knows how to run a business - namely his own. Fans aren't bitching for the sake of it. They're bitching because despite Prince floating around in his 4" Cuban heels, his fans are still upset that, in the midst of a horrible recession, they are still feeling cheated out of their $77. 10 years ago, $100 didn't seem like too much to spend on a year of promised music, but now to deliver an album for $77 that is now $4.99 in stores? Fans are clever, smart, and keep any real artist in check when it comes to business, and product. We don't need to be in the studio when he makes music, but he needs to remember we ARE in the stores when it's on the shelves.

Being a musical genius, and a once-trend setting artist, doesn't give anyone a free pass to be a total asshole to their fans; the same fans who gave him the lavish and assumptive lifestyle he's become accustomed to. If no one bought his MFing records, he wouldn't have all that 100% Italian silk, and imported Egyptian lace to brag about. Appreciation goes both ways. Iron sharpens iron, but when you're just constantly stabbed, how long will be too long before the wound is healed up?

If Prince is all about "the truth", and the Bible, then let's also remember this. The word "owe" is used once in the King James translation of the Bible. That passage, in Romans 13:8, "Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law." In another translation it says it even simpler: "Pay all your debts, except the debt of love for others. You can never finish paying that! If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill all the requirements of God's law."

Prince plays his own game. Always has, always will. Folks either put up with it, and sometimes get burned, or they don't. Fans either deal with it, or they don't. Very simple.

I can only speak for myself when I say: I would never trust Prince to follow-through on ANYTHING he promises, period.

That said, when his music does hit the shelves, I will buy it because I enjoy it. I don't have to agree with everything he does, and i'm sure Prince ain't the only artist in my library that can be shady.

Ultimately if you get burned by Prince after all this time - either as a fan, or a business associate, etc - - and are surprised by it, then you haven't been paying attention.

That's what gets me the most about people like ernestsewell, they seem so vested in what Prince does or does not do with his business. if you are disapointed with the product the solution is simple. No longer patronize the the business. Its not rocket science.

All the stuff he said may be true but I guess i'm not that vested in the business side of it to have my underwear all in a bunch because of it. Let alone be able to list chapter and verse all the wrongs that Prince has supposedly done. That's seem like u are obseesed with him on way to many levels.

I'm just in for the music.

Well said. However, I don't really take Prince's business practices personally. I chose to spend $77. Is it everything I want? Nope. Was I promised more? I don't think so.

falloff You must be new here. Take a look around at some of the threads here. Every week there's a new one where someone is bitching about the bitchers. The fams are very defending of Prince here so if you don't agree with every little single thing Prince does and worship him, be prepared to fight with them. lol

I agree. I just don't understand how people get so involved, burned or not. You can't tell me that some store you went to hasn't fucked up on a transaction - given you the wrong change, not delivered, given you a faulty product, whatever! Does that mean you then go on a lifelong mission noting every single mistake they ever made and campaigning against them about it.

What's really happening here is that these people (and I include Ernest) were obsessed in the first place to chase down absolutely everything he does and then, because not everything delivers (that's life!), the obsession gets to the point of it being unhealthy and, instead, turns in to a life-long nitpicking session and permanent vendetta! When you're that obsessive, your expectations will never be met and then its just a downward spiral from there.

I never made a shrine in my bedroom, never pursued obtaining inordinate amounts of memorabilia, never made it my business to know the ins and outs of every deal and transaction Prince was making. I enjoyed and bought the albums and went to see him in concert. Its been a simple, yet rewarding relationship and certainly not fraught with angst, disappointment, rage and despair!

I wish I was a completest in my collecting activities, but I'm just not. I do have a lot of stuff though. We were all obsessed with Prince at some point, whether it was buying loads of memorabilia, or listening to SOTT 3 times a day.

I just want good music, and someone who doesn't take advantage of their fans. I think Prince does that. Prince and Metallica are kind of in the same category on a lot of fronts. Metallica lost a lot of fans, and Prince has lost a lot too. That does bother me. I wish Prince was bigger. I wish he was still as noteworthy as he once was in the public eye. But you have to look at the bigger picture sometimes. Do you ignore the way he's fucked over people by law suits and bullying, and just focus on the music? Or do you see it as something different? It's a personal decision.

I will always love Prince and I will always be a fan. I'm not a puppy though.

For all of us who have bought, at least, every album he's released - we (and you) ARE invested in his business. If I go to Red Lobster and order a lobster and I get a snow cone...someone's gonna know about it. Prince once said music should be free like air. Well, it's getting harder and harder to breathe. It's not about nit picking - it's just still trying to believe in an artist you have grown to love and respect on a music level. I don't want to see him fail, or put out shitty and vapid music, 2nd rate product, and lie to people about what to expect. I want Prince to just remember who Prince is/was and always should be.

Listen, I didn't make his walking canes, or film the "Gett Off" video like those people did who didn't get paid properly, or at all. I'm just a consumer who wishes the best for, and from, an artist I love.

In fact, I did not patronize NPGMC in any incarnation, nor did I buy into Lotusflow3r, or pay $25 just to get INTO a website to buy music I might have wanted. "Lifetime membership" is what has really gotten those who paid in a ruffle.

I have no problem with Lotus or NPGMC. I believe supporting those endevours allows prince to keep making music and releasing it. All the money I have paid out to prince doesn't even begin to equal all the pleasure his music has given me over the years. I have probably listened thousands and thousands of times to various works of his. He's earned every cent I have ever paid out to him a thousand fold.

People are so damn greedy. U can't really put a price on the ART that prince has created and allowed us to enjoy. Life is about more then dollars and cents.

LOL Not in Prince's mind.

I could have done without NPGMC, and loved for him to release the aborted High album, maybe in a Deluxe edition w/ a 2nd disk. He later released all those tracks as two different cyber albums anyway. I'd have loved to had a physical copy.

Well, you better start defending him. Don't you know that Prince might be reading this website? If you ever meet Prince in person, you can tell him what your screen name is and he will remember reading all the times you defended him. Then he will reward you with The Truth for being one of his good, faithful, and loyal Rainbow Children and you will have everlasting life in a paradise where everyone has love 4 one another. lol

I can remember when Prince had a lot of fans,his not doing bad. Saying it okay
to be rude to your fans and they suppose to support you is stupid not to offend anyone. Yes Prince is
a brand but like all things if you "keep on abused it you evenly will had nothing"
I watch Youtube and I watch hits of other artist I see Prince hits are way below... I'm around music everyday and musicians which love Princes music.. We barely talk about his work ethics.. But this is only my opinion Prince is an artist that suppose to give to the world "music" some that post here are in all phases in music some are fans that care about music.. You have to be honest and if the artist is not far gone he will listen. Somethings I don't agreed with ernestsewell,but we have this one thing in commend, you suppose to respect you fans because thats your paycheck..

Well, you better start defending him. Don't you know that Prince might be reading this website? If you ever meet Prince in person, you can tell him what your screen name is and he will remember reading all the times you defended him. Then he will reward you with The Truth for being one of his good, faithful, and loyal Rainbow Children and you will have everlasting life in a paradise where everyone has love 4 one another.

hyper-critical breakdown. lol

The beauty of the org is that it allows various opinions of Prince, regardless of the hyper-critical detail. We all listen to and enjoy music (any kind of music) for various reasons. Prince shouldn't be immune to this.

I support and defend Prince's artistic and spiritual character.

I don't have a comment on Prince's personal business affairs.

I disagree with earnest's comment about the recession having anything to do with people investing in the "LoutusFlow3r," website.

Music has always been a luxury product. cool

Music has been many things.


Prince himself has said that music should be free. As I've said before, what he really meant is that music should be free, and for a $100 dollar lifetime subscription, it can absolutely be free. But for another $77 membership, it can be even more free.

I think the exact opposite will happen. lol It's rather clear that he doesn't appreciate zealous fans.
