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

Perhaps lol

I remember prince saying at an awards show that he wanted to thank Dick Clark for helping him put Prince to bed.

I am pretty sure it was the American Music Awards around The Gold Experience era

What does Prince have to gain by writing a short obituary for Dick Clark if he was being phony?

i do find it curious that P writes for DC but no comments made when JB, MJ or Whitney passed away?

Not important in the great scheme of things but curious to me nontheless.

Has anyone else noticed that he has stopped saying "I" ("eye") and "me"...its always "we" and "us" now.

what's with THAT?

Is he back on the split personality thing from Oprah's 1995-96 interview?

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.

blah blah blah

There is something cute and unspoiled in Prince's tribute. It's kidlike in a pure of heart kind of way.

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




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?



.
Exactly!!!

Who are you to question whether or not Prince had a personal relationship with Dick Clark?

I've always sensed that Prince has found it difficult to make "genuine" friendships largely due to his public status. It's sad, but when you are a high profile celebrity, you do tend to get all manner of people throwing themselves at you, wanting to be friends, wanting you to be involved in their projects, and unfortunately this makes it hard for one to separate the genuine people from the ones who are merely self serving.

I will concur with you on that point. I've been quite curious myself as to who the "we" and "us" are, who he regularly references in interviews these days. That is a little puzzling. Sometimes it's hard to figure out if he is referring to the entire band as "we" or if in fact his "other person" in which he revealed on that Oprah interview all those years ago is still a very big part of his life. smile

While what you're saying might be true, it has nothing to do with Prince. I think it's nice of Prince to tribute Dick Clark because we see another side of him and while some might be questioning his friendship and interest in Dick Clark in all honesty how could we possibly know how they felt for each other when we personally don't know either of them?

Jeez, how many decades ago was that??? Prince is in his 50's now and has matured. I'm sure now he's thankful for his blessings and opportunities that he was given even if he couldn't see them when he was a young punk. Give him a break already damn. disbelief

NO!!! He must be held accountable for this slight! lol

Prince fans. They'll say something is shit outright, still support it and then somehow blame someone else they had to deal with it.
