prince slave to majors

{{{On the Italian site http://213.215.144.81/pub...10743.html, Prince is described as kneeling to major music labels, after foolish long years of war against them. The article is in italian...
[Note: the site has semi-porn advertising, just so you know, we warned you smile -Ben]}}}

PRINCE SI ARRENDE ALLE MAJOR. DOPO ANNI DI GUERRA E DI OBLIO TORNA SUI SUOI PASSI (E SUONA AI GRAMMY
Prince sta per firmare la resa incondizionata, chiudendo così la guerra decennale che lo ha contrapposto alle major discografiche. Dopo aver cambiato nome, lottato come Davide contro Golia e aver persino pubblicato album autoprodotti, il folletto di Minneapolis ha deciso di arrendersi. Secondo il New York Post, starebbe per firmare un accordo con Clive Davis per la sua J records o per la BMG (sempre del vecchio Clive si tratta).
Sarà un caso, ma Prince ieri ha aperto la serata dei Grammy Awards riproponendo il suo maggiore successo, “Purple Rain”, ufficialmente per celebrare il ventennale dell’uscita del disco…

From what I gather, John Kerry is forcing Prince to sign on with a major label, who, in conjunction with HBO is forcing him to do a guest spot on the Sex in the City finale, where they flashback to 1984. Carrie goes to a Purple Rain show and does the groupie thing. She then writes about it in the school paper, hence starting her career as a columnist.

They suggest we watch some softcore porn



But I dont speak Italian. Go figure

Can't read Italian, but they probably based their article on an item in today's NY Post.

IS Prince ready to become a "slave" to the music industry again? Industry sources say the singer is in California working on his next album and "is shopping it to major labels." Prince, who once performed with the word "slave" on his forehead during contract disputes with Warner Music, had sworn off labels forever, but after his last self-released album, "News," flopped last year, he has reconsidered. It's expected that Prince, who has worked with Clive Davis before, may head to J Records or BMG.

2 – PRINCE IS SURRENDERRED TO THE MAJOR. AFTER YEARS OF WAR AND OF I FORGET RETURNS ON ITS STEPS (AND PLAYS TO THE GRAMMY) Prince the unconditional revenue is about to sign, closing so the ten-year war that countered it to the major discografiche. After to have changed name, fought like Davide against Golia and to have even published album autoprodotti, the elf of Minneapolis decided to surrender itself. According to the New York Post, is about to sign an agreement with Clive Davis for its J records or for the BMG (always of the old Clive it is discussed). It will be a case, but Prince yesterday has open the evening of the Grammy Awards its riproponendo greater happened, “Purple Rain”, officially to celebrate the twenty-year dell’gone out some disk…

If Kerry's considering any of those women for V.P., he's definitely got my vote!

wow that NY Post Article is bullshit.

* Prince NEVER swore off Labels forever.

* NEWS isn't a flop.. The Grammys didn't thingk so! Also it sold 100,000+ sales (when he gets 90% of the profits he made over $1 Million his cut)


:ROLL:

BUT "J Records" should be his home smile

by the way, what's wrong with porn??
i mean, america is the biggest porn provides and producer of the whole world!

Apparently Europeans have less problems with porn. Why do you considder it being so bad, or low, or even unhealthy for children (janet jackson)?
Be glad there is some porn, if not, we all would be frustrated maybe, and didn't know how to fuck (make love to) someone properly! wink smile biggrin
Porn is very important! Even Prince promotes it (constantly)..
wink wink

If Prince does indeed return to a major label I'll pass out in excitement.
