Things you never expected to happen in Prince's career.

-Prince becoming a JW.-Mayte and Prince ending their marriage. -Coverting his name to the symbol, then changing it back. Name some.... biggrin

That messy "filing-lawsuits-against-his-fans" time period.

"Holocaust aside"

The whole JW-thing and the lyrics of TRC were so terribly annoying. I knew that he was religious, but that he became such a dogmatic nutcase was shocking and frustrating.

1. I never expected he'd have so many fickle fans when he changed his name to the symbol.

2. I was surprised when I first learned of him studying to become and eventually became a Jehovah's Witness. Glad he did because he seems happier and more at peace since he did.

3. I never expected those cold-blooded overalls he wore on the muppet show. lol

4. His butt-less pants on the MTV Music Awards... I take that back, it wasn't unexpected at the time. I thought it was hilarious though.

5. The unexpected death of his baby boy.

6. NPG Music Club shutting down. I wasn't finished buying all the songs I wanted...

Remember when u told me that love was touching souls?
Well, surely u touched mine. O{+>

Never expected him to cut himself off from the Internet/ cyberspace considering how ahead of his time he has always been

To live in LA

Didn't think I'd see him on American Idol

Never thought I'd see him on the Muppet Show - but love that he did, ditto for performing Gett off at the MTV awards with the cheekless pants!

And a bit o/t:-
Never thought I'd hear my mum say how good he still looks on the weekend, despite her having not liked him since the first time she saw the Kiss video

I never expected him to get so engrossed into the JW faith. I mean I think it's cool that he is exploring his religious side and all, but to give up on sex, swearing, choosing to not sing certain songs ie darling Nikki - it's just not how I expected Prince to end up. It's like the fire & passion in him is... gone.

I like the naughty Prince.

pray Peace in the House of Prince.

He would be so vulnerable to be so heavily influenced/manipulated by Larry and espouse such conservative regressive ideals

Agree to push consumerism via products(perfume deal)

Live in LA

Give up on veganism/wear fur boots

To continue with the objectification/svengali routine with women of little or no talent.

To reject the internet and not control his music/information through a central site.

That's where my least expected lies. I never expected to think many new Price lyrics are lame and I never expected to not be able to listen to a Prince cd....20ten

I also never expected him to tear down his old house and more or less leave Minnesota.

Invite fans to Paisley Park.

Change his name to a symbol

Closing the NPG site

(I totally thought that Prince would participate in strict religious practices. That generally comes with age, especially combined with the loss of close relations and that fact that he was so sexually overt in his youth and young adulthood.)

I'm okay with the no swearing thing, but I'm not against it either.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

I think everything there except the stagename change was on the cards. Not specifically a JW, but some other loony cult. Divorce and backtracking - or coming clean - about the name thing were all good bets to make.

I genuinely did not expect him to ever release an album via a free giveaway with a newspaper (and now he's done it a second time).

Just somewhere in the middle,
Not too good and not too bad.

Yes, that was the biggest one!

But he is constantly able to shock his fans....name change, choice of singles, his clothes sometimes wink)
