Prince Writes Tribute to Dick Clark in 12/21 Entertainment Weekly

On newsstands now:

Dick Clark

Nov. 30, 1929 - April 18, 2012

By Prince

Dick Clark was always very generous and kind 2 us whatever the circumstance. He would call U personally and always speak with grace and candor that is rare in an industry that is rife with gamesmanship. That kinda class is sorely missed. Not sure why but Mr. Clark seemed 2 genuinely like me, and Eye liked him also.

----

Clark died of a heart attack in Santa Monica.

This sentence makes me sad. Prince doesn't expect people to like him?

fuuny how the link is still falling for the age myth:

Prince made his national television debut on "American Bandstand" in 1980 when he was only 19-years-old.

he was 21 at the time.

FYI: there are some Orgers I ignore. So when I do not reply to them... that is why.

^ Prince was 20, it was before june, in early 1980 iirc, therefor Prince was not yet 21 at the time. wink

it was jan 1980... 80-58 = 22 but he had not had his birthday so he would be 21...

but that 19 was part of myth of the day. They shaved 2 years. if you have seen the AB appearance prince seems uneasy when asked about his age. but then again he was uneasy with all the questions.

ah, you are right, and yes he did cut 2 years off his age.. smile

Prince also thanked Dick Clark in his speech at the American Music Awards, 1995.

something like/ by memory: "thanks to Dick Clark for finally letting me put Prince to bed".

(By memory, please correct me if this is totally wrong..).

Dick Clark told Larry King Prince was the most diffcult interview he had ever done and when Larry King told Prince that Dick Clark had choosen 1999 as one of the songs of the millenium Princes response was "Oh."

IF PRINCE THINKS SO HIGHLY OF DICK THEN WHY WAS HE DISRESPECTFUL TO HIM ?

Maybe that's just how he felt at the time when he was starting out. He was ridiculed a lot for his appearance and the themes he used in his music. I suppose a lot of people weren't really willing to let him perform on TV or write about him in a favourable manner in magazines in the beginning.

Are you talking about his behavior on the show over 30 years ago? confuse

Young people do and say things that seem okay at the time.

Hell... older people do, too.

The article was written from the perspective of a man in his 50s in 2012... You don't think he could have gained respect for Mr. Clark over the years?

Prince is a class act. Don't know why peeps always say he is mean. This is the first time he has written a statement on anyone after their death. It shows the respect he always had for Dick & Dick had 4 him. The statement is profound & very heart felt. Go on Princey..Do U...

princes like a "ACT OF GOD" N another realm.Of all people who might b aliens,angels.if found out prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not b surprised,"What's happening now is the position eye always wanted 2b N, eye was just tryin 2 get here" Says prince

Prince accepted an award of achievement on the American Music Awards in 1990 (presented by Anita Baker; AMAs were Dick Clark's show, essentially). One of the first (if not THE first) people Prince thanked in a very humble speech was Dick Clark. His weird behavior in 1979 on American Bandstand didn't come as a surprise to Dick Clark, and Clark clearly never held it against him. This short tribute from Prince isn't the first time he's had kind words for Dick Clark.

Wow. It's refreshing to read smething Prince said or wrote that sounded...human. Perhaps he does have the capacity to write an autobigraphy. hmmm

Comments like these should not be abnormal . The only way I truly understand another is to approach that understanding and all other forms of love is with my true higher self . Which should not be separate .And Dick Clark also shares the same day of the month in which I entered this world. Thank you Mr Clark ,Respect and thanks for the lessons.

Speaking for myself, when u are a private & guarded person u tend make it a challenge sometimes for people to get close or get to know u & sometimes that makes u question whether a person really genuinely likes u or is trying to get into your business...maybe it was like that for Prince..
