Many of Prince's so called "fans" have much to learn. One can not expect much from these people who continue to bash him and his music and yet spend every waking hour in the org. Prince is the master.

Master of what? You?

master-bater.

Will you guys calm down! You only will go to see Prince anyway, so who cares who opens for him? God could open for him and you would bitch.

Janelle Monae, Ezperanza, these are great artists. He obviously cannot tour with big names, because they would overshadow him. The artists also have to do black music. This is about alternative funk/soul.

Now take the chill pill and groove on. You folks test my sensitive side.

Why does it have to be "black music?"

clapping Agree with your last sentence, except the "black music" part. No, they don't have to play "black music" aka various types of music, commonly associated with black culture, based on society's standards or assumptions, but not limited to" so-to-speak. There is absolutely no limit to what types of music, musicians who happen to be "Black" can play, and Prince, along with many other musicians of African/Black-American descent, have already proven that. So I expect, we will hear various styles of music, from each performer. Remember, all of us don't like the same cake flavor.

What happened to his nose? it looks crooked a la Owen Wilson? did he get a bad nosejob recently? I've never seen his nose look like that before!

About the lineup, why does he always include nobodies we don't give a fuck about, why not include The Artist Formerly Known As Terence Trent D'arby, Hall & Oates (they are amazing live), Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Steve Vai, Lee Ritenour, George Benson, Larry Carlton, and comedian Lewis Black (he attacks religion) instead of Sinbad.

he's organized some gigs for his friends and musicians he enjoys in the hope other people might enjoy it too

whilst a press conference to announce it might seem unnecessary and over the top, its a good way to bring attention to the shows

yes he does live in a bubble, but let him. he's institutionalized now, any world outside his own may be too daunting for him

he's comfortable where he is, and i hope he and all involved have a good time doing what they love, and that the people who attend will enjoy it too.

this too shall pass

Well said. Three questions: Did he take any questions or, just toddle off after his 'speech'? How many reporters/journalists showed up? And re: the MJ thing, has he ever worn glasses like that before?

i dont know the answers to the first two questions, and i dont know if he has ever worn those glasses before

but either way, he'll never see the world through michael jacksons eyes, or george michaels lol

prince lives with his own perspective, only time will tell if it ever syncs up with anyone elses.

Reasonable proof that Prince rocked the aviator look before MJ ever did:

Find me a picture of Michael wearing those shades before Prince's Dirty Mind era ('80-'81)
and I'll take it back.

He was wearing it since summertime, before he went to the European tour/on the European tour 2010.

There are pics with him and Bria and I think Shelby wearing those glasses.

This is similar to his white one from years back. Where is this picture from?

Yesterday I received an email..Special A list announcement with this picture of Prince from the Apollo Theater. I'm on their mailing list for upcoming shows and events. There's an Apollo Theater in Minneapolis that I've been to and I like being notified for music shows.

The picture in the email looks exactly like this. I didn't see a response to the above question. I tried to copy and paste the email but something prevents me from posting it. I'm not sure why or what I'm doing wrong, but the picture is exactly the same. There were a few details about fans who wanted to come and join the press conference, times, the adress etc.

Subject: TONIGHT - Prince at the Apollo PRINCE AT THE APOLLO THEATER!

will make a rare appearance in New York for a special announcement to the media. He would like to invite his fans from the New York area to join him when he makes the announcement.
Seating is limited and on a first come, first served basis.

WHEN: Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Fan check in begins at 5:00 PM
Press conference begins at 6:00 PM sharp
WHERE: Apollo Theater (253 West 125th Street, Harlem, USA)

giggle Alrighty.

1979:

1980:

It really doesn't even matter who wore them first. Michael "owned" those sunglasses. lol That's why several people in this thread and the other one have wondered why Prince decided to wear "MJ's glasses" in the first place, lol. Plus, of all the millions of clothes and shades Prince could have chosen from, he didn't have to pick an outfit that similar to what MJ wore last year anyway.

Oh ffs with these MJ comparisons! You deluded MJ deciples are so scared of Prince's power of being more talented etc that you try so hard to keep Skeletor on top in your never land mind! Prince has copied no ones look, Prince looks cool, stylish and in glasses billions of people wear. MJ looked like a sick tranny who could barely talk.....who then "rehearsed" a terrible rehash show where he jerked and moved like something from Jacobs Ladder. THERE IS NO COMPARISON. Prince is too talented to be put in the same league.
