Prince may be revered and adored by millions, but not much is known about his private life.

Since becoming a global, Grammy-winning star in the '80s, with classics like "Kiss" and "Raspberry Beret," the R&B musician has pretty much kept to himself. He rarely gives interviews and mostly prefers laying low at his paisley Park compound outside of Minneapolis instead of hob-knobbing with celebs in Hollywood. But with new music on the way this year – he just released a terrific new single "Screw Driver" online, which you can hear here – the star is pulling back the curtain on his private life.

A new Billboard cover story offers a rare glimpse of His Purpleness and Paisley Park. (An excerpt is available here; the full story is available at newsstands now).

Here are five jaw-dropping revelations from his interview.
1. Even at 54, Prince dresses like a total rock star. Writer Gail Mitchell notes, "The ever-slender Prince…is garbed in yellow pants and a long, oversized button-front white-and-yellow jersey emblazoned with 'MPLS' on the front. His afro is covered by an incongruous hat in the shape of a lion. His other eye-catching accessory: wedged silver shoes adorned with periodically flashing red lights."

2. He still hates the Internet – and has hired guns to help battle piracy of his music online. "I have a team of female black lawyers who keep an eye on such transgressions," Prince says.

3. He may have a touch of paranoia: the reporter is forbidden from tape recording their interview or even taking notes. "Some in the past have taken my voice and sold it," Prince says. "I can't remember the incident that triggered it and it's probably best that I don't."

4. Remember when Prince changed his name to an unspeakable symbol and began scrawling the word "slave" on his face? Turns out he wasn't just protesting his label, Warner Bros., for their lack of support for his career. He was also taking aim at a certain pop star. "It was also about Madonna," a Warner Bros. label-mate, Prince reveals. "She was getting paid, but at the time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights."

5. The man has doves in his house. Doves! "Before heading back downstairs, I spy a large, nearly floor-to-ceiling white cage across the hall," Mitchell writes. "Approaching closer, I can see white doves, at least four or five of them, chilling inside." But unlike Prince's famous song, these birds don't cry: "Their coos echo ethereally through the building as I descend the stairs."

No comment.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

As always, we've learned nothing new, important, or remotely intriguing about the man or his immense talent.

The good news is this is probably part of the Prince blitz to promote forthcoming new material.

But, as far as 'insights', it's the usual say-nothing nonsense from Prince. It reminds me of the rediculous Guitar Magazine interview he once did where he talked about God instead of his craft.

The fact they're obviously inept only kind of adds to it's absurdity.

I'd just like paragraphs back on the org.

Not quite true, since new band members were found on YouTube, and Andy is online and the thirdeyegirl and new Prince site

I'm sure you could be a bit more mature and respectful of their description instead of referencing them like that. All 3 ladies are White. Ida I believe is Dutch, and not sure what Donna's ethnicity is.

I find those types of attitudes ridiculous and childish from many fans who should know by now, that Prince has always been a musician who embraced other artists and fans from various, racial groups, and that's why he has such a diverse fanbase. So anyone who feels that way needs to chill, and I don't see the need for the author of the article to go into a state of panic and 'ring the alarm' because Prince uttered the term 'Black' out of his mouth. lol If you read the entire article, it is obvious the author was trying to get a 'rise' out of his readers, when it seems the only rise the author got, was the one he was hiding under his desk as he typed the article. lol
