Prince: Crazy Like A Fox

Prince has been taking a LOT OF HEAT 4 his latest "internet is dead" comments.
What people don't get is yea, Prince is CRAZY..............CRAZY like a FOX
how much PRESS did this ONE STUPID quote get!?!?!

The CD is FREE anyway so if people download it out of SPITE he DON'T CARE!!!! HE already got paid 4 it. HE GOT MILLIONS UP FRONT 2 GIVE IT AWAY!!!!
in a day and age where CD SALES R shrinking at an alarming RATE he got MULTIPLE papers 2 GIVE him MILLIONS 4 it!!! he is the smartest man in the room.
Can He do this 4ever not really but he did it AT LEAST TWICE!

RE: the actual comment - if U read between the lines he is back 2 fighting 4 ARTIST rights and Intellectual Property. iTunes is more popular than CD stores and the MOVE more UNITS yet they give the ARTIST EVEN less than the physical CD does. iTUNES does MUCH MUCH MUCH less regarding any sort of work (in store displays, advertisements, physically displaying CDs etc) yet they take much more of the profit.

YouTube sells ADVERTISEMENTS on their pages that display content THAT THEY DON'T OWN. Prince is actually MUCH MUCH smarter than people give him credit 4. The only problem with statements like this is that Prince is heavy handed and clumsy making sweeping statements. Shunning technology like iTunes, Youtube and the internet ensures he keeps getting a smaller and smaller audience. He wont ever reach new LISTENERS this way. 2 the "kids" of the world he doesn't even exist. He isn't on the RADAR. While ARTISTS who really pay attention 2 Prince and his teachings will benefit greatly his promotion and ability 2 get new fans diminishes.

He seems 2 b at a point in his career and life that he is at peace. He has done it all. Prince feels anyone who really wants good music will FIND it. I hope he is correct because it would b a shame 4 an entire generation 2 miss out on a TALENT LIKE PRINCE!


20TEN (not) IN STORES SOON!

Yeah, it's obvious that he's yanking everyone's chain and the non-thinkers will freak out. You can go to all the message boards on the blogs that are reporting the story and see the posts of outrage. "Prince's career is dead!" "I can't put his music on my iPod!" Boo Hoo!

Prince is Brilliant! cool

What the hell was that?

Hey y'all, I thought we bust this new hype before
All across the land
(New dance commercial take 2
Rio, Marbella - we gettin' stupid
ha, Germany, Paris France - we gettin' stupid
yeah, Stockholm Sweden, we love ya

Let me shed, it's easier said code red
Bust the new groove just hyped 4 the jughead
Bass thumpin' everybody's doin the bumpin'
Oops, I slipped on a move
I think it's time 2 bust somethin'
Sleazy, but cool and easy
"Is this the right one?"
Yeah - this is 4 the hood
Better keep it greasy
Better yet on a smooth tip
I don't wanna sweat
I want my slimmie 2 get with this
Move your head and shoulders from side 2 side
Take your back foot, and then u let it slide
Yo, in a fade motion, lots of attitude, coast 2 coast
Then u're floatin' homeboys boastin' -
U made his skeeze freeze
U've been chosen, P
Ladies and gentlemen, NPG introduces the...

Jughead
Yeah, we gettin' funky in the house tonite
Kickin' the jughead
Come on, get stupid, get stupid
Kickin' the jughead
Oh yeah, we gettin' funky in the house tonite
Kickin' the jughead, yeah

Wait a minute, what's he doin'?

Well, Mack daddy in the house over there
What u doin' dawg?
"Gettin' busy G, kickin' the jughead"
Yeah, baby's gettin' busy in my face
Cold housin' a future
Everything has been well placed
This daddy's 2 fly
He bust the jughead as he floats to the other side
U watch the rotation, there's a bit of hesitation
This is some new hype stuff u're facin'

U gotta come with a new git
The J-U-G-H-E-A-D, and I'm flowin' with it
U could say I'm on a roll
NPG and y'all, and we're gettin' bold, oh
Yes - bold steps must be taken
2 bump a nation their scrutiny is what I'm facin'
As u pump the volume to what I'm sayin'
U'd catch me dead before you catch me
Doin' anything but the...

Jughead
Yeah, we gettin' funky in the house tonite
Kickin' the jughead
Get stupid, get stupid
Kickin' the jughead
Yo, yo, we gettin' funky in the house tonite
Kickin' the jughead, ha ha

get stupid, get stupid

Don't worry if you're lookin' silly
Look over here at me, workin' 4 Willie
Gettin' busy in the corner Oh yes, is that Levi?!
Holdin' my own - u think I'm posin'
I'm just frozen on an upbeat
Clockin' a freak in a low pro
U know - discreet
Baby was laughing
But before a "no" was even said
She's on the dance floor
Next beat kickin' the jughead

Boy, we gettin' international
In the house
That's right
We gettin' international
In the house

We want this one 2 go worldwide
Huh, that's right worldwide
Not state-side

Give it up...

Who turn the mother out?

That's what I'm sayin'
Tony, you were excellent
What you need is a manager

That's what I'm sayin'

For what?
I can make you... Money minders are like parasites
They pose and wheelers and
Dealers for your rights. And most
Companies say that you need em!
Not me... But I've kicked back, observed, and
I'm honest... Watched 'em bleed 'em
Artists young and old
I can bring you to the top! Where'd this unwritten law come from anyway?
That years after the contract you should
Still be gettin' paid? Boy, I go broke
And hit the skids before I take care of
A rich sucker's kids. Hell,
My contract... A contract ain't no pension plan,
My contract... Years after this my kids are still
Gonna make the grand.
Tony, you... And you laugh at my brother Little Richard
When he says you ain't gave him nothing.
Let's leave him out of this Hell, that ain't no joke.
His songs are still sellin', that man
Could die broke. So fellow artists,
U need me... Push for yours, and watch for
Mr. Money Minder, as we settle the score.
Tony...

this too shall pass
