Prince interview in Belgian paper (June 24th) and Album To Be Included With July 10th Issue

I read in today's paper (Het Nieuwblad) that they will put an interview with Prince in it tomorrow. Their redactor recently spent 5 hours with the man himself in Paisley Park to interview him. Tonight he will talk about the meeting on the TV-show Villa Vanthilt.

I'm sorry, here's the translation

Of the link

Wim is jaloers op Nieuwsblad-journalist Hans-Maarten Post: die ontmoette Prince en mocht er uren mee doorbrengen. Morgen staat Posts interview met Prince in de krant, maar hij vertelt nu al zijn verhaal.

Wim is jealous of Niewsblad journalist Hans-Maarten Post: he met Prince and got the chance to spend hours with him. Tomorrow, Post's interview will be in the paper, but he already tells his story (on the radio, that is)

Short translation from the article in the paper (there's no link available for this)

Hans-Maarten Post, redactor, was given the chance to interview Prince, but he got more than that. He could stay for five surprising hours with the man in his music studio Paisley Park. Tonight he will tell his story on the TV show Villa Vanthilt (22h25)

in the audio file he says :

i went 2 minneapolis.. it was very fantastic surrealistic.. we were in paisley park .. he's very a very mysterious person.

he took me to the stage in paisley park.. i spend 5 hours with him in the afternoon...

when i got back in my hotel prince his backing vocal ( shelbey? ) called me to say i've got to get back cuz prince is giving a party.

he was very kind, he gave me a tour around paisley park.

i also got a interview in his garden but he was very weird (=> jehova stuff).

prince got on his stage and asked what i wanted to hear... the interviewer said : sometimes it snows in april. => prince took his piano and played the song.

they also played a few other songs together with his backing vocals. they were rehearsing 4 the upcoming shows.

that's about it free translated :p

the full interview tomorrow in "het nieuwsblad" = belgium paper.

i'll get a copy and will try to translate the interview 4 u guys

oh come on, the man was obviously very impressed with prince and said he was a very

funny and friendly man and totally down to earth in his behaviour when he showed him

around paisley park and played music.

he only said that prince was weird in answering questions when it came to his interview,

which was when prince avoided answering any question and mainly talked about his JW

religion (as he does in every interview)

he said that prince said "we all need to become one with the rustling sound the leaves

on the trees make". but wether this was actual fact or just a made up example by him,

to show how prince talks, i'm not sure, he doesn't confirm that.

but both the interviewer and the radio reporter seem to have genuine love for prince as

far as i can tell.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

yes, but promo for what? i suppose the european dates are sold out by now, no?

and from the looks of the ebony article (which is pretty much the same as this

is gonna turn out, judging from what the writer said) he hasn't got any new cd

or something ready to go and promote.

strange hmmm

Right, I wonder why the other thread was locked, I am surprised too... Luv4U made a mistake imo, cuz the locked thread includes all the scans.

Maybe the scans should be lifted over here then - or Luv4u should un-lock that thread ??

(it's not like I can read Belgian language, I just enjoy the pics in those scans wink )

There is no Belgian language. And it is a bit 2 much to translate by hand......

But the part about the givaway is true and Prince states that the internet is 'over' hence why he closed lotusflow3r.

French, Dutch and German. Dutch sometimes also referred to as Flemish, as it is a bit different from the Dutch being spoken in The Netherlands.

It would be more logical to open up the other thread. Anyway, the new album is called "20TEN" and will be free with the newspaper Het Nieuwsblad on 10/7, the day of the Werchter concert. The guy doing the interview says he got to listen to the new CD and he was afraid of "average stuff" like some of his last CD's, but that he thought the new music was "good. Very good." Well... lol He's clearly a Prince fan so we'll see...

At a certain point the journalist congratulates Prince with his "new music" and Prince says: "Old music! I'm already 3 albums further". He says music is always in his head and playing and performing is like "cleaning his head...", otherwise he gets "tired".

On the closing down of the Lotus Flower site he's evasive, just saying in general that "the internet is finished".

Prince says he's found an "incredible calmness" in his life due to Jehova and he wants to communicate this to people. The interviewer suggests there's a room in Paisley Park called "Knowledge" where his Jehova Witness books are to be found.

Prince also says, in all seriousness, that "having played a life long of guitar does something with you. I'm convinced all that electricity has contributed to the fact I still have so much hair." lol

He says he's still getting better as a musician, that he's a much better guitar player and is sometimes "ashamed" when he listens to his older albums. He says his father educated him into music, and showed him how to appreciate the old Duke Ellington.

Okay ... I'm reading the article right now in the locked thread .. (too much to translate)

When Prince plays his new songs:

"Of course I was afraid of a CD full of mediocre songs like he's put out in the last couple of years. But this is good. Very good. I hear songs and sounds that bring me back to the time when the world was mesmerized by this innovative musician."

biggrin
