Tom Joyner is a vindictive asshole who thinks he controls the airwaves. People also forgot that Joyner has an ax to grind because Prince refused to do one of those cruise ship shows a couple of years ago.

When so called news breaks watch the source to see if there are issues with the person discussed to determine truth.

Everyone lies.

Live nation pulled the Twins visa and Ida's.

They fired Prince.

There is way more to this story. He has not paid them for last week yet because he didn't make enough.

Just because a show APPEARS sold it out doesnt mean it is.

Tom didn't have anything to do with this. The correspondent Jawn Murray was the one who reported it on Tom's show. Tom and his people didn't say anything. Listen to the report on page one.

Here's the conversation he had with his band this week (Warning if you are very sensitive to Prince musings, then STOP immediately) eek

Prince: Could U Come Here for Sec

Band: neutral What now? I don't know we betta go

Prince: Listen we need to talk......

Renato: We are going to another location,yes?

Prince: Nah Renato

Renato: sad

Prince: Dig, we have a slight complication

Renato: Listen, we don't need to play La Forum. We can do club gigs!

Bassist: Yea, let's hit the clubs!

Blackwell: I think we achieved what we set out to do here

Prince:Listen... it's not that

Hayes: What is it then?

Prince:Payment may be little slower than expected

Shelby: It's all about the music. We can wait a little while longer

Hayes: Shelby, could you please shut your bald kissing ass up?

Renato: That's it, I've had it. I've had it!! (slams keyboard on floor)

Prince: Wow...umm

Renato: Please continue... I wait for you to finish, eh?

Prince: Okay... we may have another problem

Renato: Dear dios do not say it ...

Prince: The visas may ....be held up & some may be going back

Ida: We...had..sorted this out I thought,no?

Renato: I am holding back not to hit you, you understand me? :shakes head:

Hayes: Uh, a word?

(Prince and Hayes go to huddle)

Hayes:Let me be blunt: Nigga, are you out of ya muthafuckin mind?

Prince: :Speechless: We don't use language...

Hayes: Nah nah nah...fuck that. If you don't pay, John is gonna fuck you up. He aint come all the way out here for this shit. Cora aint play that shit either. Where the fuck she go?

Prince: Money is tight,brother.

Hayes: Maybe you need to ditch a few hair stylists or get rid of that symbol stage. Nobody cares about that shit but a couple of delusional fans and you! You might want to cut back on your goddamn photo shoots. I don't know, do fuckin something

Prince: I'm running out of options

Hayes:You ever wonder why everyone cut you off?

Prince: :Sighs:

Hayes: Get your shit together if Live Nation is jerking you then you better.......

:Loud Crash:

Well...hick well look who it is? Welcome 2 :hick: America

Hayes: Oh shit, the bitch is back.

Bria Valente: Listen....you need to :hick: pay your band. Because...we are going to work on our second project together...

Hayes: Bitch You can't sing! We tried to tell you that. No one was checking for you on fucking myspace. You wasted his money!

Bria: LISTEN.....I have something to say to you Maury

Hayes: It's Morris.

Bria: Maury...I never liked you...or your accordion

Hayes: Organ

Bria: What... the.... fuck..ever. Oh no (hick) ..I ...swore. Where is...... that.... stupid jar? Where's Prince?

Hayes: Turn around Heffer!

:Bria turns around:

Bria: Hey.... it's time we (stumbling).....record :hick: again

Prince: Yea... now isn't a good time.

Bria: Listen!! (Stomps feet)

Prince: ::looks away and whispers to security:

Bria: :Security Drags her away: I know you made my project...fail on purpose, Mr Nelson!! ::points accusing finger: You packaged your shitty albums with my :hick: amazing debut. I listened...to my baby :hick: last night! Lotus Flower is a pile of crap compared to Elixir. And you were sending your yes men to Prince org to sabotage me! Missster Nelssson, I am on to u! The new project isss... gonna be called Tweelixir. It's a combo...of twitter and elixir... My idea! MRRRR NELSON & I want full attention or....media take out here I........ :falls flat on her face & passes out on floor:

:Band & Hayes walks away muttering " Wasting his time distracted trying to chase hits with tonedeaf bitches. Can you believe this shit? Maxwell wouldn't do that shit to us."


worship worship worship worship

Dayum, where were you when they needed help on GB?? lol

Careful, you may be summoned Kevin Smith style to do a screenplay for UTCM 2: Return of Christopher..

Funny how it is never his fault. His album flops? The record company's fault. His concert series flops? The promoter's fault.

Damn, you're on Prince's ass all the time like he slept with your wife or something.

Yeah yesterday after tix didn't go on sale and then a secret show failed to materialize people got ALL panicky. "Well I heard this and I heard that. No more shows! Oh noze! I haz give up hope!""

Today brings a sigh of relief.

I have been working with Live Nation reps to cover this series & have been in touch with them through the whole thing. I can assure you they've been carrying on business like everything is happening as "planned" while admitting they generally have no more info than what you can see on Ticktmaster and everything is happening on aminute by minute basis.

One of their reps, when asked if there was idea when the next set of dates would be announced or go on sale, responded "There is NO information, and I'm not being coy."

Everybody says more or less the same thing. They have no idea what he's gonna do. Prince wakes up in the morning and decides what to do that day, and that's the way the whole thing is run. Last-minute chaos and confusion is part of the bargain.

Hope those people in line at the Troub right now have a real nice last-minute chaotic show.

This so-called report is what non-journalists do all the time. They don't care to fact-check their information before releasing it, because it's much more important to them to "break" a story and get attention. As critical as some people are of Prince's behavior, it's surprising that they don't scrutinize these gossip-mongers with the same fervor.

ahammond

after being a fan for some 30 odd years I always like to take a wait and see attitude with prince. it seems like since 1979 when he stepped out on stage in his undies and leg warmers people have been lining up to see him fall. and more often than not he seems to have the last laugh. or in his case the last smirk. so, as frustrated as I am with him over the past few years I still get a perverse thrill out of seeing him stand his ground. I'm not exactly sure why...maybe as a fan I don't really want to see him fall like other "rock stars" have. It's funny, the other day I was going through some old boxes and found a bootleg(sorry Prince) DVD called 4 those of you on Vallium. Ah, the glory days...

Live Nation and Ticketmaster merged in 2010, so we can assume that since W2A tickets are and have been available on TM, there is some sort of professional relationship with Live Nation as well...same company.

and a gig at the Troubadour as well tonight.

Damage control, plus to make up for the hoops he made people jump throught he day before.

We find out LN and P will work again in the future and that it ended up being amicable.

If we believe Prince's rep.

Musicians have been paid after a delay.

Which is pathetic beyond belief.

And all this shit already happened two weeks ago by the way.

So half a dozen concerts into his 21 concert run Prince has managed to screw things up. Dude is 53 years old and still behaves like a spoilt teenager.

Oh yeah Bart... You're so damn right. How come I did not think about this before? Prince checked your posts yesterday and felt really concerned knowing how much influence you have in the whole wide world. Your comments would have probably destroyed his career forever. So he decided to play a fabulous set at the Troubadour and to add 6 mores dates in LA + 2 more in San Diego.

And regarding Prince's behavior, thank you for showing him the way to behave properly. You're a lesson of humility, of grace, of intelligence, of greatness for all of us on this board and for Prince as well. And you're as well a great business advisor. You're probably richer than Prince actually.

You've been bitching systematically for 15 years now which is certainly a sign of determination and good mental health.

Thank you, Bart. It is as simple as that.

Jawn Murray just sent tweets regarding Prince:

Jawn Murray
Much respect to Prince's PR rep for calling & being honest & forthcoming! So many publicists LIE so it was good dealing w/ one w/ integrity!
Jawn Murray
- Prince did part ways w/ Live Nation but rep says split was amicable. "He & the president remain friends & will do future biz."
Jawn Murray
- Rep confirms there were payment delays w/ some band members in Prince camp. Issues have been resolved. Shows resume this week.

This little bitch sends this out as tweet but you went on a national radio show and put out a bunch of lies. As for the bitches on this board if you really do not like the P's shows are music. Just do not go to any of his performances or buy his music. How he conducts his business with Live Nation or anyone else really is not anyone's business.
