NPGMC is gone and MySpace has replaced it

Up until yesterday, if you Googled "Prince", the NPGMC was hit #1. The Org was #2.

This morning, I saw that NPGMC was gone and the new #1 with a bullet is "Prince - MySpace". The Org is still #2. I don't recall seeing the MySpace link at all before, so Prince has obviously paid what it takes to get his MySpace at the top of the list.

The MySpace is the one we're all familiar with, but here's the link for anyone who's not been there yet: http://profile.myspace.co...ID=8018440

if an effort was made to put that page at the top of the google heap, i'm sure it was more universal's doing than prince's.

Actually I think his MySpace has been around since at least the beginning of the year if you read his Blogs and the time stamps of them.

I also requested to be on his friends list. I'm on Tamar's.

Well I guess that's where we'll be getting any information about upcoming tours or shows. For the celebrity afterparties, I guess we'll get reports on how it turned out on his myspace page now.

Shoot, I've been trying to get on his friend's list for over a month! I keep putting in a request, but it's still pending a week later. Then I'll delete the request, and try again (to get my name at the top of the list). Whoever handles his MySpace account is SLOW! I figured they wouldn't take any requests right after the divorce announcement, to limit the number of inappropriate comments, but it would be nice to be his "friend" eventually.

i really don't think prince's myspace page is a "you'll hear it here first!" resource. i think as prince distances himself more from universal, you'll see that myspace page grow more and more neglected.

i could be wrong. shrug

OK, so I'm not the only one! I bet he never even looks at it. Someone at Universal is just slow to add people.

I haven't had any luck with him adding me as a friend either and I've tried a few times. Now I don't feel so bad seeing that other people are having the same problem. I was able to make friends with many of his associates and past band members.

btw, i doubt the NPGMC myspace has much to do with Universal. i would think "NPGMC" is wholly owned by Prince and would remain a completely seperate entity from whatever label he's associating with at any given moment.

I didn't have any problems being added as a friend...but I did it quite awhile ago...probably before NPG shut down. Now Sheila E. on the other hand--her page will only allow requests from people she really knows. sad You have to enter her last name or email (and I tried Escovedo--it didn't work. smile )

It might be nice if Prince's myspace page really did function as a surrogate NPGMC but I don't think that's the case. There haven't been any new updates/blogs since NPGMC went on "hiatus" even though it says the last log in was today.

IMO, it would be very common for Prince to jump on the myspace bandwagon after winning a webby for innovative use of the internet to market his music.

Do you know how many people are waiting to be his friend on that site since it opened? I noticed he did accept some of the npgmc fans. I bet there's more than 1,000 waiting to get on, plus I doubt if he's the one picking the friends to add on. There seems to be new ones added every other day. So don't give up hope, probably just too many trying to get on.

The myspace page was made by Universal. Who runs it now is anyone's guess cuz that thing was getting checked once a week if lucky. Now, it gets chacked at least every other day.

In the past few months, the top 8 has changed. If it is his, wouldn't DJ Rashida be the featured DJ?

The only thing at all of interest that has changed is instead of the label being NPG/Universal, it now says Prince owns himself.

And if this page is the new source, y no cryptic messages and y hasn't the M E party been added on there?

there's a specific NPGMC myspace page? i just thought there was the "official" prince myspace page, and the "about me" profile starts a little something like this:

This is the only authorized Prince MySpace page. All others r unauthorized and have no affiliation with Prince.


Announcing his new musical home, musical superstar Prince has signed an exclusive recording agreement with Universal Records, it was announced by Doug Morris, chairman & CEO of Universal Music Group, Mel Lewinter, chairman of Universal Motown Records Group, Monte Lipman, president of Universal Records, and Prince. His first release on Universal Records, 3121, made its debut earlier this year.

The entire Universal Music Group family is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a visionary and charismatic talent as Prince, stated Universal's Doug Morris. Prince is one of popular musics greatest architects, added Monte Lipman. He is the embodiment of what musical artistry and talent is all about; he continues to be a major trendsetter whose many talents have always earned him the highest respect and praise.


sounds pretty universal p.r.-ish to me. confuse

Ussayin it right. It does say he owns himself on it and it gets check almost everyday. I guess we'll hear about the ME party afterwards on the blog there. Tamar's getting been adding a lot of friends to her site too.

this account has been in active for over a year and a half.

this is not news and the myspcace page is not replacing the npgmc.

It's said that for quite a while--in fact I don't ever remember it not saying that. I remember because when I read it (when I first found the page) I thought it was funny in a wry Prince sort of way...

And if this page is the new source, y no cryptic messages and y hasn't the M E party been added on there?


Exactly.

Still, I think we all should give it up for the ORG. I joined in in 2001 or 2002 and I really found all the information I needed, some exclusive pictures and great friends too.

LONG LIVE THE ORG!!!!
