Hasn't Prince been highly critical of Billboard?

Maybe so, but that's the entertainment industry, alliances are fleeting.

When there's something in it for both them, any past is quickly forgotten, as will be the case after 19th May.

That Prince deserves this type award is not the question, can he leverage on it to bring his music vision to a wider audience and I dont necessarily mean charts.

Prince is a musician not a lifestyle.

it's a great opportunity for him to remind the public about himself before the new album.

Well...I'm hoping he understands the new album needs 2 b RELEASED right b4 he grabs this award. As it'll generate a bit of extra sales... twocents

You know, he just performed in mpls in front of 200 people where he was in negotiations to perform on the biggest tv show in europe which takes place tonight in germany in front of 10 million viewers, so.... wink

He also released RNR affair here in germany and switzerland and performed it on tv in the US....

Yes! An award / career recap + live performance are the perfect set up for a tour & album. It reminds me of how he orchestrated Musicology around his Grammy performance & RnR Hall of Fame induction--it was something he reportedly sat down in planned in advance. And if I recall, he promised in 2004 that "something big" was coming, too.

I'm also reminded of when he did American Idol around the time of 3121, two songs from that album if I remember correctly and holy macaroni that was AWESOME. (Also a nice reminder when watching a global karaoke TV show to see a REAL performer.) Best part was when I think Ryan Seacrest went up and hoped to stick a microphone in front of the Purple Yoda's face, but Prince split the fudge out of there pronto after the performance.

Badass.

Intersting take. I thought the Idol performance was awful and a real low point for him as far as TV appearances go. He looked horrible, sounded worse and added in the dancing twins to add extra cheese to the whole thing. And not a live instrument in sight. Then again I hate the show and that's pretty much the nature of it anyway so maybe it's ust me but the whole affair seemed, well, a bit beneath him and i didn;t think he really delivered at all that night.

The best part of Prince's surprise AI per4mance was seeing Simon sit there sulking while Prince stole his spotlight. Also seeing Paula Abdul jump on top of the table dancing in awe of Princey.....

Yes he has. But hey, an icon is an icon. Prince knows he is, so this is something he and billboard can agree on.

This sounds promising. Hopefully Prince will subcribe to the mantra, "less is more" and skip the medleys and simply focus on one song (with maybe an intro or a snippet of another song) with an evocative performance.

Chill!

What's boring about thanking your creator? AND, Prince and him giving cryptic messages are not unsual...I mean we are talking about Prince. Who defines what is a weirdo? Prince is Prince..Everybody who knows little about him, knows very much that he dances to his own flow!

Better act like you know! haha
