There was even a small article and photo (of Prince) in the London Metro this morning on the mansion.

Great press for the new album!
Happy is he who finds out the causes for things.Virgil (70-19 BC). Virgil was such a lying bastard!

Probably almost strategic timing, you know for 70k, and living in your house Prince is going to do some crazy shit to crib, you just have to look at the interior of Paisley Park, Purple and Brass everything, symbols, bizarre glass containers and shit, gold records and over size cushions with harem sized dressings, big ass couches and shit, spa pools full of purple flower petals, Purple gauze screens and all the other signs of nouveau riche, whats sad is u know his decor is going to date quickly.
Probably Prince and him made a deal, yo let me wreck your house, I pay u heaps to do and fix it all up, you complain when I release my next album and well both get paid!!
17 Years ago I made a commitment to Prince

You would think, w/ that kind of monthly payment, that there was a clause (or whatever) in there that Princey could make alterations? Maybe? I dunno shrug

This reminds me of when they sued him for not paying for those damn walking sticks disbelief

I'm just shocked that a mediocre NBA player like Carlos Boozer have his own multi media company. I guess that's smart though, building for the future and not blowing it all on back child support like some NBA guys.

Me too. I was under the impression that he had the house. I mean he has enough money to buy it. Very interesting.


If you notice the house is rented by Prince/MPG Music. It's a business venture where he gets write-offs.

why the number 3121? well, numerologically speaking, 3+1+2+1 = 7, which is Prince's Chaldean Numerological number, him being born on the 7th of June and everything.

Also, if u check the book 'The Secret Language of Birthdays', June the 7th is apparently the day of 'the Entertainer'.

hmmmmm.

Smoking Gun reports :

Landlord sued singer over purple alterations to Hollywood manse.


MARCH 20--Claiming that his $70,000-a-month tenant Prince undertook an extremely tacky makeover of his Los Angeles mansion, an NBA star recently sued the mercurial singer over the purple-hued alterations. In a January complaint, Carlos Boozer, a forward with the Utah Jazz, sued Prince/MPG Music over unauthorized work done on the West Hollywood property, which is owned by the C Booz Multifamily I LLC. According to the lawsuit, Prince/MPG Music violated its eight-month lease by "painting the exterior of the [house] with purple striping, 'prince' symbol, and numbers 3121." Prince's new album, "3121," is scheduled for release tomorrow.

I don't understand the problem! Prince has great taste and style, It's not like the colors of the Utah Jazz aren't simiular . Put a blue stripe in and call it a day. It's not like he hasn't forked over a mint already!

The renting is probably a smart move.
The $70,000 per month AND the legal fees are a business expense.
Which should bring down the tax bill for his tour triumph a coupla years back.

That said I'm not a US tax expert so any orger thinking of renting a home in the Hollywood hills as a business expense should take independent advice first.

On the surface I'd agree but owning in long run far outweighs any "tax" advantages one might have.

I wish Prince the best of luck. His landlord has no taste. Anyways, I like Prince's taste of redecorating in hues of purple and yellow. Yes, purple and yellow go together really nice.

I would expect no less. I never bought into the "it's simply an address" theory


maybe its a reference to one of the following:

Psalms 31:21
Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

Jeremiah 31:21
Set up road signs, make guideposts; set your heart toward the highway, even the way by which you went: turn again, virgin of Israel, turn again to these your cities.

Deuteronomy 31:21
And when many disasters and difficulties come upon them, this song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants. I know what they are disposed to do, even before I bring them into the land I promised them on oath.

Proverbs 31:21
She is not afraid of the snow for her household; for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

i thought prince's place looked heck-a-slamming, no really gnarly, seriously, i thought it looked stunning (is that a word we use in 2006??), greetings markus

God created the earth, the moon and the stars in 7 days (according to reports in this weeks National Inquirer) but the Dutch took much longer to create The Netherlands from raw materials sea and sand. This is a long version of a much more snappy quote delivered to me by a Dutchman. At the time, I was completely smashed having unwisely sampled some of Amsterdam's local fare but the following day I put my copy of The Old Testament (buy it now at Amazo) in a fish tank as a tribute to the Dutch. Erm...just thought you should know.

What was the question again?
