Haters of Prince-haters Need to stop hating

No, I don't visit this site as often... probably for the same reason as most: not as much happening. But I still do because you never know. What I've seen, though, has been more of the same -- people expressing frustration w/ Prince and more people jumping on those w/ negative comments for not "just leaving the site" or "ever being satisfied." As someone who has drawn catharsis from this site through both positive and negative posts, I have to say: let the haters hate. It's out of love.

The reason we Prince fans are frustrated, the reason we lament RnR affair and other lame "singles" recently put out by Prince, the reason we're so dejected at yet another lame protoge, is becasue we - like all the die-hards who think being a fan and visiting a fan site means never saying anything negative - love prince music (key word: music).

We've connected w/ his music, we know how raw and how funky it can be, and we know - as he says - it can get "better with time." Talent doesn't fade. Motivation does. And that's what we express -- we know what Prince can do if he wanted to, and we're frustrated he doesn't want to! That doesn't make us less adamant prince fans it makes us more adamant. That we feel so strongly about it that we type in a prince-fan-forum is evidence of our convictions.

I'll never stop being a prince fan - and a big reason why is because I never know when he'll bring it. Just when I think he's "lost it" - he busts out w/ "dance electric" on jimmy kimmel. and that's the whole point: part of the adventure is the ebbs and flows - the crystal balls and the 1999 maxi-singles. Feeling those ups and downs - and expressing them - is part of the fandom and shouldn't be criticized and shunned.

I do agree with this critique: if you think a particular post is a waste of time....don't comment and say so. Otherwise you disprove your point. So...in commenting on this, comment substantively and avoid all the mean-spirited "why are you even saying this" and keep it moving.

Anonymity makes meanness tempting...but fight it. "It's more hard to love than it is to hate."

Bullshit.

And I'll explain why:

They claim they don't stay to complain and such because they've been a fan of his old stuff at least. But you never eva see them post anything about the past music they love. Like I did regarding Pop Life etc.

All they are doing is trolling.

Show me a post in the orgs history of a Bart posting an appreciation post of an old song or performance. Show me Walls post stating the great things about Parade. Show me the post of Trevor reminiscing about The Gold album. Show me show me show me lol.

You cant because its not there. These folks here are simply trolling. They dont care about the music be it poor or great. They just care to social media whore it up on some troll shit.

If Im lyin' I'm dyin.'

'Need' is a strong word but I agree in principle. I'm not sure that talent doesn't fade though. Let's face it, Prince isn't alone in his musical trajectory as he ages.

AGREE 100%, Nothing is wrong with critisim, but some people just wish Prince to be something he is not, or please them, if u are a fan of Prince, U know he has always done whateva he wants to do. This is the epitome of who Prince is. Complaining your ass off is not going to change Prince, it never did. You either love the song or u don't like it, but there is no neeed to constantly hate on the song, and disrespect Prince as a person, because you are going beyond his "music" and attacking HIM!.

Shit, I've called Prince an asshole many of times [& made a few threads about it too lol ], but I still applaud his music I find dope without question. So the whole "troll" thing is not a fact when it comes to everyone. wink

eye can understand why Prince is catering to his overseas following with releasing RNR Love Affair over there. Because he knows his US following are too unappreciative. So he has given Andy his new "MasterPieces" to handle over here.

eye will ALWAYS think of prince like a "ACT OF GOD"! N another realm. eye mean of all people who might of been aliens or angels.if found out that prince wasn't of this earth, eye would not have been that surprised. R.I.P. prince

That doesn't make us less adamant prince fans it makes us more adamant.

You speak for yourself mate. I'm not an Adam Ant Prince fan and you're not "more Adam Ant". It doesn't even make sense. Adam Ant was shit anyway. Last I heard of him he was tryin to shoot up a boozer or something in Kentish Town trying to work out why he was so shit. He was going mental... Same here, you might say, and I'd agree with ya. Course I would and I'd stand and deliver too.

Seriously, I don't agree with Rod Hull, apart from the fact that he lived up the road from me and spent far too much of his time with his hand up a stuffed bird (Not always a bad thing) and not enough time reading his TV manual before the Man U game, but he, or she, on this site, in this thread, I think, is talking wankstains. (No offense) "And here's why"... rolleyes

I don't like much of Ps post 90 (I'm being a bit generous) stuff but I think he's written, played and recorded some fuckin crackers since then too. Course he's got it in him. I've got an opinion on it, all of us have. Some of us have been into his stuff for yonks, some of us just stumbled on some of it yesterday. Lucky them, I say.

I might think most of the stuff he's put out lately aint up to much but I give a fuck at the same time. Why? It's not just the time and the money I've spent but maybe I think he's a funky mf? Maybe I've based that opinion on listening to shitloads of his stuff? Don't ask me, you didn't, I know, ok.

Everyones opinion is as valid as yours or mine is. It might sound like a load of bollocks, as mine prolly does to you but it's there. I'm not here just to stab at fuckwits for no reason. There's plenty of places to take the piss. Look up Godboard.knobs or something, there's plenty to fuck about with.

Why would people be here pissing and moaning about P but knowing their stuff while they're at it? They must have got really into it at some point to be bothered, surely? There's some pretty well informed whingers on here when you look.

I'd never heard the term "Hater" til I got near this place. Sounds a bit wanky in the first place to me but if I'm a 'hater' cos I don't like the shit he's been churning out when he can be arsed then so be it.

I think R& Rse is a load of old bollocks and it is. That's the most recent thing of Princes right? I'm drawing no comparisons by any stretch but when I first bought ATWIAD I thought it was bollocks too. I only liked Raspberry Beret and I took it back to the shop and got my money back. Literally.

After a week or so I thought I'd better have it and went back and bought it again. I still thought most of it was shit but it was growing on me. It wasn't what I was expecting after PRain but it was good stuff the more you listened to it.

Today, there isn't a song on the album I don't like. It's a classic album to me and was bold as fuck at the time. To others, it's the biggest let down piece of shit he ever released and they might well say so. Why would they be bothering if they weren't into P though and who's to say who's right or wrong?

I've posted stuff here gushing about how fuckin great he's been and I've pissed and moaned about some other stuff. I wouldn't be posting anything at all if I didn't give a monkeys now would I? I'm quite happy with him doing what he wants, changing, trying new shit on us and tryin it on himself. I'd more than encourage it, who wouldn't? I'm not gonna love everything he does cos he does though. If he drops a few pearls and it gets my head nodding I'm gonna get fonky. If it's a sack of pants I'm gonna piss and moan.

One of the best gigs I was at he sang some absolute blinders from 6ft away from us. Cock-Eyed girl included. At the same gig he sang fuckin 9 Million Bicycles. what am I sposed to say to that? Nine million bicycles my arse.

Now I'm off to JesusLovesChristmasAnok4u2.com for some relaxation. I'll waste another hour tapping bollocks onto their site cos I couldn't give a shit and I'm some kind of 'troll'.

(I'm not really, I'm an oven, but only on Sundays).

P.S. I'm in the UK and as far as I'm concerned you can keep R&Rse for a coaster.

*This post in no way endorses any and all comparisons or affiliations with R&Rse and ATWIAD.*

It's not about the difference of opinion, but about the posting style. How hard is that to understand?

A troll is someone that enjoys causing disturbance on a discussion forum and there are a handful of individuals on this site that clearly behave in this manner. Calling them out for it has already had some positive effects.

Prince has not released "Rock and Roll Love Affair" overseas.

IMO, it's 50-50 that he ever will.
