Anyone notice how BIG Prince was on the self titled album?

The pic on the back that is. He's never been anywhere near as big as that since.


I obviously mean muscular

ITS only a picture and pictures are confusing. i always thought prince was a tall guy until 86 that is when i saw purple rain.

i wanna be ur lover video puts him in the skinny category tho and it was recorded that year

the pic was taken from floor level which gives that elongated look - but i have to say I never noticed it back then, but recently I noticed how odd that pic is. Most of his arty pics are elongated, i dont think its a height thing I think he likes the art effect

He was muscular then, but he is leaner now. I don't think he works out or eats as much now.

I know he started getting skinny as hell, but how do ya'll know he had an eating disorder? He could have easily started eating differently and excercising wrong to get skinny like that, didn't nessasarily mean Eating disorder!!! shrug

He isn't anorexic or bulimic, he just does not eat as much. He is careful what he eats, I read he is vegetarian also he is a workaholic so that accounts for most of it. I think his body frame in Graffiti bridge is smaller.

couldn't you have said muscular in the title? BIG leads to FAT. Prince's fattest moments are borderline normal for any other person's weight/build. i'm jealous. =P

Just about everyone in the west has an eating disorder. That's why obesity is in the news every week.

Not "eating much" is not necessarily an eating disorder, unless you purposefully and unhealthily starve yourself. Prince has always looked far too good to be suffering from any sort of eating disorder. He is naturally skinny, always has been, but has always seemed in good proportion.

Prince himself has confirmed he is a vegan, not a vegetarian, on many occasions. Vegans can sometimes suffer from a thin and pallid appearance, but many other things can lead to looking like that, so eating disorders and anything else are just pure speculation.

Back to the point of the topic - always liked that pic on the horse, but I don't think he looks any more muscular than at any point up to around 86.

Agreed, there is too much junk food everywhere! mad

I just discovered Haagen-dazs pineapple coconut ice cream... so yummy with cherry crumble. Got to work it out tomorrow.

That's back when he was eating meat. Hell, everyone should try some meat. I could go for a big ole polish sausage myself right about now. I don't want no fish though. lol

yes good point

Protein is required for muscle growth. He was working out alot and eating well. When he went to a vegan diet he lost a lot of weight
