Prince: So Hip He Needs Two New Ones

Tuesday, June 09, 2009
Music / By Roger Friedman

prince 263x300 Prince: So Hip He Needs Two New OnesPrince was on the prowl again last night, making an unscheduled appearance at the Apollo Theater’s 75th anniversary celebration to toast Patti Labelle.

But the real buzz on Prince is that his much reported hip problems of the past have now turned into need for a double hip replacement.

Unfortunately, thanks to his practice as a Jehovah’s Witness, Prince still refuses surgery. JW’s don’t believe in blood transfusions.

“He’s in a lot of pain,” said a source who was backstage with him last night at the Apollo. “He’s popping pain killers and hoping it will all go away.”

But it won’t. Back in 2005 reports surfaced that Prince needed one hip replaced. He declined. Then again in 2007 and 2008 came more reports that he’d finally agreed to “secret surgery.”

Now the diminutive R&B star is walking with a diamond studded stick to keep him upright. It’s the same stick I saw him with two nights ago at a post-Tony Awards bash. I’m sure he’d rather have a Raspberry beret or a little red Corvette, but for now Prince is stuck with the stick.

The question is: if it gets worse, will he go to a wheelchair?

He may not need a blood transfusion. You don't know until during or after. I banked my own blood just in case for a surgery, but didn't need it. But unlike Prince, I eat, so I was strong!

Prince canalways start to stock his own blood. He can come here and go to 1 of the most reknowned joint hospital which specialize in swift recovery and upmost privacy.



When it comes to religion and medicine, all you can do is respect one's personal wishes. We are not the judges...the medical team can only advise him what they deem medically necessary for his health and career. I hope he knows that hip replacement surgery is something that has been performed many times over and perfected as medically possible. I wish him the best and pray for his strength. If he's a vegetarian or vegan, he may need to up his protein levels for muscular strength (vegetarains rule by the way)..but all we can do is praise his relationship with God, and hope for the best. PS surgery is scary, but people can get through it. I wish Prince would write a song about hips, and put a spin on how sexy, strong, beautiful, and powerful they are...and twists the words so much that only true Prince fans would actually know what the song was about...maybe call it the one in the middle or hippie love...oh I dont know

I like how the article claims he needs a cane to stand upright, when he's been sportin' that cane since at least Diamonds and Pearls.

I'm surprised they didn't report he was going blind and that's why he wears dark sunglasses.


yeah, but back in the D&P days, the end of the cane didn't used to have a rubber tip on it. neutral


If dude breaks out with those precut tennis balls on the tips I'm thru!

At least drfunkenberry is no longer saying that Prince doesn't have any problems with his hips at all.

Anyway, I hope Prince will make the right decision.

Thank you for the clarification.....

If you see something you feel should be reported then click on that report to moderator button. A moderator will look into reported thread and/or post. We mods cannot be everywhere, so don't expect the mods to just come along and "find stuff".

Now I would like to keep this thread on topic. If you wish to discuss this further feel free to orgnote me or any of the other moderators smile

the hip thing doesn't worry me ...if Prince is happy enough being in pain and trying to hide it from everyone thats fine....his choice...but the 'pain killer' addiction is another matter...anyone close to prince, really close to him, should definitely try to look after him and point him in the right direction....

unfortunately I don't know if anyone 'with' prince, is really there for him as a person....seems there's a lot of 'judas kissing' going on...which is really sad, but I guess no surprise for someone in Prince's position....

sometimes the truth just isn't enough...sometimes the truth is a lie

I'm sure that Prince will come to his senses and get the operation.He loves to tour and perform and he won't be able to do that anymore with a painful hip.So,I wouldn't worry about this wink He will do the right thing,regardless of his JW beliefs.

Note he was wearing those little white trainers (US: sneekers?!) on the outdoor Leno performance, and have seen them a few years back on another show.

Reckon this is to do with it?

Maybe if he wore 'sensible' shoes like this more often, especially during live shows, he could get away with a good few years of live work before his body finally tells him to give it up?

As Tower Of Power would say, "What Is Hip? (Replacement)", anyway? C'mon Prince, don't do a Bob Marley on us.[i]

its really sad if its true and there really is no reason not to believe it - he has hammered those hips with all his wonderful dancing, and its sad to think of him in pain after all the pleasure he has given us. I think the pill popping is maybe eggagerated cos I can't believe he would take a lot of pills but even so its all rather sad. I think its also sad that he cannot have the operation because of his religion but maybe his faith is stronger than his pain threshold or perhaps he just don't want the operation -whatever the reason I wish him a healthy life and to be happy, if he is happy with his faith and prefers the pain thats up to him - we just need to support him whatever. Peace n love y'all x

There's ways around the blood transfusion thing, thereby allowing JW cult members to have surgery and NOT have a blood transfusion during surgery. Usually they donate their own blood ahead of time. And there are other ways around it. It's amazing to me that the same Bible Prince proclaims to read and study w/ friends says "Life is in the blood", so why NOT get blood to live? Aren't we all from the same source anyway, ultimately?

As far as his pain, it ain't a band member. It won't just go away where he can forget about it. It won't go away. Ever. Neither will his pill habit.

-----
First of all we don’t know that the reason he is not having it done is because of the JW.
Since they have worked around it in the past I don’t think this is the reason. I think he could just be afraid to have it done. Lot’s of people are afraid of surgery and hospitals. I have a have two complicated surgeries and a long stay in the hospital. It is not a fun experience. I think P is just being stubborn and this would be the case if he was not a JW.

I can believe it. He's been wearing those rediculous looking flip flops a lot lately. As vain as Prince is and always has been, he wouldn't be caught dead in something like that unless something was wrong.

No, implying that some religious folks are great like Dr.King, Ghandi,and Mother Teresa.

If you took the time to stop sterotyping religious people you might have taken into consideration some of the good things religion has done in the world.
