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

[Bait snip - luv4u]

do u like being given notes when u are talking to someone? do u like having someone throwing fingers in your face when u are them a question? he has not given this man respect at all when they were in the same building. i will never forget the night prince was at the american music awards in 85 and he had dick's crew all discombobulated because he would not answer any question about anything. he had big chick or fargnoli talk for him and i just remember dick being very frustrated with him and he did't give a damn.

If memory serves, this seems a bit rare for Prince to acknowledge the passing of someone big. Normally, he's silent on it. Maybe that signifies just how much Clark meant to him.

Wow...

You act like Prince slapped your Mama...


Were you there? Were you on Dick Clark's staff and had to be subjected to it?
You're taking something that shouldn't affect your life pretty seriously.

Its sweet what Prince wrote and I don't think I've ever heard him write something like about anyone. Sounds Prince is really grateful for the tv break Dick Clark gave him.

As for the show he didn't do anything wrong he was just a playful shy kid, if anything the youthful Prince is really cute on it.

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

Why did he say this?

Was this around the Come period where he had the Prince is dead sloggan used and printed in the album?

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

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 think it's definately more to it than that, I think that whole situation with his father/family before he was even famous is the foundation,

anything after that is Prince's manufacturing

And like a lot of men, many of us do find it hard to open up and be transparently genuine

People get to close or get to into your heart, fear of loss sets in, and you do stuff to push them away. Cover it up with reasons, professional reasons, religious reasons, ...the Revolution, Wendy & Lisa, Sheila E. Morris Day -the Time etc etc

these people back then mostly knew him before his 'fame' hit, or when it was still fresh and new

Most people after that period would most likely be in a more distanced position in his life

Mico & Dr Fink were the last of the people of that period before the Batman-GB- period where Prince was still fresh and new

Now where I come from

death also causes people to acknowledge wrongs they've committed, whether sins of omision or things done directly

If found that at times some of the most broken people at funerals are the one who 'came to the understanding' that they treated this person wrong, never made things right, or took family friends etc for granted e

Prince didn't talk to anyone back then. It wasn't just Dick Clark. Even peeps that worked for him didn't get much convo. If Dick was that pissed off it was his show. He could have just asked him or his people politely to leave. Most rock stars have attitudes anyway. Dick is use to that behavior.

Plus that was ages ago Prince has changed. This is his own little way to acknowledge his old ways & put them to bed...People here need to leave the past & live in the now. Prince has. Accept his heartfelt little note to Mr. Clark & move on.

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

but that was 30 years ago and you don't know Prince personally to know what he was feeling when he wrote that tribute. in addition, how do you if they have corresponding over the years since that first appearance on American BandStand, are you aware of every little communication they've had since then to know for a fact what Prince feels?

This true. Also very often more that not shyness is mistaken for rudeness. And unless people know Prince personally they know nothing of what hes like or who he is friends with.

i'd work for his managers not prince. prince was not their only client. prince is very lucky that dick is not one of those mean cuss in this business other wise he would have been done. i tell u this he would not have pull that stunt on don corneilus, that's why he never went on.

I can't believe someone could question Prince's sincerity towards Dick Clark. After all this is a man who doesn't often comment about anyone.

I do believe Prince regret his behaviour. Like others said that was 30 something years ago.

If he took a moment in one of his concerts to pay Rick James respect after all they been through, how can you not think he has no respect for Dick Clark?

You are like the drunk person at a funeral who upsets the procession speaking about a speaker giving their condolences.

What kind if professional speaks ill of well known eccentric mercucial artists, musicians, actors etc. It seems like you were ill prepared for your employ.

You should call your parents and ask the why they failed to provide you with any home training.

I don't need to do anything but tell the truth. in reference to dick clark, prince did not show this man the respect that he deserve when he was alive. even his bands members though that shit was wrong. i'm glad dick gave prince a tatse of his own medicine when when doves cry was not nominated for any of the top catorgorys in 85. he had an adittude about it the whole night.

how do you know for sure that Prince and Dick Clark have had no form of friendly communication ever or showed him no respect since that incident 30 years ago. You know that for a fact? you base everything on an incident so long ago but you dont have any facts to base on what PRince is feeling now. just saying.

Sigh. I knew the org would of argued about this, clearly Prince and Clark cleared up their discrepencies. And OFC prince knew how much of an ass he was being on that show in his statement "I am not sure why Clark liked me", seems like Clark never judged him despite him being an ass! like you all are doing now....So in return he began liking him as well....Now can we get over this...and move on....
