PRINCE to perform for BB Housemates?

Found this on the Guardian's website today...

End(emol) Times: Will Prince perform on Big Brother?


The Artist Formerly Yadda-Yadda is supposedly a big fan and in discussions to play a special gig for the housemates. Elsewhere, Blur reunion plans are still a-whir, and Paul McCartney is let down by his Starbucks overlords

If you're wondering what the sky was doing turning all blood red this morning and quite why those horsemen were wielding scythes as they floated past the Costcutter, please allow us to explain: the end of the world has arrived.
According to the Book of Revelation, it shouldn't take too long, requiring only the total defeat of Satan before everything calms down again (albeit in the next life). Until then we're all going to have to make do with a continual flow of agonising augurs, including the prospect of Prince playing a gig solely for residents of the Big Brother house.

This gut-fricasseeing prospect was revealed this morning in The Sun, The Official End of Days Paper, which claims Prince is a "big fan of the show" and has asked to put on a performance "either in the BB garden or screened in the house from a London studio".
A source went on to explain further. "Prince is a huge fan of Big Brother. He has tuned in to every series of the show so far and loves the concept.

"His management are in discussions with producers Endemol to arrange a gig. Prince is hoping it will be an unforgettable moment that goes down in BB history."

Now far be it for us to challenge this version of events, particularly when we are having to expend a sizeable percentage of our energy defending our home from a plague of flying vampire rats that defecate laser beams. But still, let's try.

First off, who really believes that Prince has watched every series of the UK Big Brother? That he was sitting in Paisley Park a few years ago banging his fist on his glass coffee table (he bought it for specialist reasons) going: "Where's my DVD of UK BB Series 4? I wanna know what Cameron the Scottish fisherman has to say about sharing the washing-up duties! Hmm, who's that chick in the paisley bikini?"

Secondly, it's also a stretch to imagine the Purple One viewing any performance in the context of "BB history", like he wants to get his own chapter in the annals next to "Jade learns where Cambridge is".

Also, thirdly, all those tickets for the Dome gigs sold in 20 minutes and you're telling us a bunch of dipsticks get their own gig laid on for free when half of them probably won't even know who he is? That's fair, all right. Anyway, gotta go, there's a small child at the door spewing blood out of her eye sockets.
I'm gonna talk so sexy, she'll want me from my head to my feet..yeh yeh yeh

It has to be false...I wouldn't trust the Sun, but then again, I didn't when they had the scoup that Prince was doing the soundtrack for Batman.

How odd. I'd think he'd despise a show that showed every detail of people's private lives. Ending up in a situation like that would be his worst nightmare! lol

How funny and yet all at once, disturbing. omg

I've especially not watched this year's show, partly because it's now a load of rubbish. Really don't think this is ever gonna happen and hope it won't.

the episode will be called Big Baby Brother and Larry will also be in the house

but Prince will leave Larry in the house and then the fun really begins when Larry tries to convert everyone and they end up beating him silly with his own bible in the middle of the night

Oddly, I think this year's UK Big Brother house looks a little like Paisley Park with it's multi-coloured decor but drab looking outside.

There's a whole comedy thread just waiting to be written about Prince being a contestant on BB.

'Day 17 and most of the housemates are in the garden. Prince and Sheila E are in the diary room, thanking Big Brother for the vicars and tarts party the previous day.
Last night, Michael B and Morris Day were arguing about the washing-up and are now discussing their argument.'

I really think purplescarf's talents are wasted here, this "news" was made for this carefully scripted takedown! Love it!

If Prince is really a fan of BB, what's next, his marraige to Jade?

Well if it was true, I guess the performance is primarily for the viewers of Big Brother, rather than the idiots that appear on the show. I find it very hard to believe Prince would be a fan of the show, but of course a stunt like this would certainly help promote his shows in London and his new album. So there may be a shred of truth to the story, but it'll probably never happen.

As long as I never have to see Prince sell out like Flav and actually appear on the show as a contestant, that's fine smile

Sorta sad, really.

If dude REALLY was so interested in money, he'd get up off a' them filmed live recordings, vault trax, unreleased videos and soundboard aftershows and put them shits up for sale on a website...but whatever. I'm tired of wishing for it. Who needs a soundboard feed and crystal clear video of Prince on stage with Ron Wood, Chuck D. and Sting when we can have a cell phone commercial pimping a poor song that eventually was re-mixed into an average one?

Oh, wait. I forgot about the...

PERFUME!
