This is the best time ever to be a Prince fan.

Seriously, this is the absolute best album he's ever done. It makes what happened back in 96, 97, and 98 worthwhile. Remember the first round of lawsuits to websites that refused to join his collective, and how Kathy Adams poked fun and added to the disaster with every new post on L4OA? Where does Prince find these people to work for him?! Where?! LOL.

i think perhaps there should be an unwritten rule when discussing prince that album by prince should not be stated as if it were fact lol...cus hardly anyone ever agrees on his material (come is in my opinion his best album...and some of his best stuff came out after that for me)
Wouldn't you love to love me?

Imago

Genre bending. Innovative. Controversial. And overall absolute genius, Prince can take anything .. I mean anything!!!! and express it with equal parts eloquence and shocking vulgarity.


Prince has never been one to shy away from controversy. Obviously, this whole lawsuit business lately is proof of that. Even if he's stopped cursing, and singing about having sex with virgins who are on the rag, he still knows how to stir stuff up.

But there was a time when his music was what ilicited all the responses. When it spoke for itself. No need for wearing assless pants, no need to make outlandish statements on magazines and other means--you could just get it from a record.

But one thing that always struck me was that Prince juxtaposed all manner of subjects, otherwise blush worthy to any other musician, effortlessly and with no sense of shame or embarassment whatsoever. It was like he pulled his nuts out of his silky lace panties and said, "Look bitches--check these hairy bad boys out. I may strut around in lace women's underwear, but I overflow with machismo!"...then boomerang his pumps at cha.

Anyways, sex, love, and spirituality -- these things are always pitted against each other in strange dualistic battles on his albums. but when viewed from afar, Prince is actually treating all these as one continuam. They are just different colors of his passion. He went from one end to the other with his songs.

Speaking of the other end, one of the things he seems to have an obsession with is the female hind quarters--perhaps even male, but that's always up for debate. But you always hear him talking about "ass" but never what he wants to do with it. It's as if he's not totally confortable with that region of the human body.
One could probably reckon that this was due to some repressed latent homosexual fantasy that was surfacing but being stiffled before it could shine in all its glory, but I propose that Prince was probably just revealing how hygenic and sometimes prissy he could be. The anus, after all, is more difficult to keep clean than vaginas and penises. Sure, Prince could easily say "I sincerely want to fuck the taste out of your mouth", but you'd never catch him say "I sincerely want to slush the poop in your ass with my dick"--There's a line that even Prince wont cross, especially if it involves hygiene.

His obsession with hygiene is apparent in his interview with Oprah Winfrey. When she asked him if he always dressed nice, he replied, "On a normal day I'm clean". Now obviously, he's being hip with lingo here, cause being "clean" also means to look sharp, but let's not kid ourselves here--Prince loves double meaning. He obviously means that on a normal day he keeps his ass fresh.

But if you think about it, the asshole or anus is just the other opening of a very long tube leading to your mouth. And in between there's digestion. Digestion of the words, the ideas, the very visualizations that flow throughout his work. Even when he says "Dont hate me cause Im beautiful", he says it like he's got food in his mouth. He goes further in that very same song (Pretty man) and says "Maceo--can U blow?" , which again HAS A DOUBLE MEANING! Always with the double meaning. But you can also hear this in many many songs. In Poom Poom Poom, he sings the chorus as if he's taking a massive dump, and he even does the Poom Poom rap like he's chewing on something. Its as if ALL bodily functions are not sacred to Prince. They're all worthy of expression.


And express he does. It was said once in some magazine that where Marvin Gaye cracked the bedroom door open a wee bit with "Let's Get it On", Prince tore that bitch off it's hinges!

People, people, calm down. We all know it's an indisputable fact from God that Purple Rain is his best album.
