Alan Leeds was correct!! In saying prince is a bad person (with issues) that occasionally does nice things. You ever wonder why new artist he finds always praises him. If you are a good person, u don't have people cosign your personality. The old heads in the industry and former band mates know that he is a asshole to the 7th degree! Hey this is coming from one of his loyal fans...its getting real old Mr.Nelson...end of rant.

Hmmm... how does that work? "To the best of my knowledge, and under penalty of perjury, I confirm that the above information is correct." Signed, Julia Ramadan. In a private facebook message from Tyka Nelson's account. LOL.

Exactly what I was wondering. The OP claims that Prince is using his sister as a "messenger", but it's just Tyka posting Prince's manager's notice. Who knows why? Maybe Tyka got the message.

and we can voice our opinion when he does. it is not a issue of his legal rights but more of what is RIGHT and how a celebrity ought to treat his fans.

How do you know? You've been around him an on a day to day basis? Or is it just hearsay? Of course young musicians show their respect to him. That has nothing to do with whether he is a nice person or not. I love Prince, James Brown, Chuck Berry and I don't care if they are/were nice guys or not.

Unlike most artists,Prince is always having "issues" with the Internet lol It's ironic because,in the 90s when he was feuding with Warners,he was acting as if the Internet was his new best friend....lol...he talked about having the freedom to sell his music directly to his fans (without the middle man).He soon found out that the Internet is something big and powerful,and that he can't really control it.Prince hates things that he can't control.That's really what these 'cease and desist' letters are all about: ego and control.

How is he "protecting" it when so much of it has already been bootlegged a million times or more? lol Considering that Prince bootlegs have been floating around since the mid-80s,he's a little late to start being concerned about it,don't you think? lol

"However he see's fit," and actual, effective, legal remedies r two different things.

Instead of swimming this issue up-stream for another 2 decades, he should learn to make whats downstream work in his favor.

Prince is turning into Kim Jong Il and Basher al assaid. I mean can he even do this, do he think he is a gold plated god or something. Its easy just make the groups secret so the Paisley Park Gestapo won't find them.



They need to realsie we live in a modern democratic and modern society where the work of artists should be discussed and appreciated as a human being. I feel Prince is acting too high handed and needs to realise he is negatively impacting on his own popularity if he continues with this madness and paranoia.



Wake up Prince, this is not the Soviet Union in 1937!!!!

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name

confuse So now he's sending family members C&D's for using his likeness on FB? disbelief

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.
