So people are "sick" and "crazy" because they don't agree with some of you? It's called an opinion and all of us are entitled to one.

People can stay the fuck out of my air space too. I have an exclusion zone, unless you're our lass.

I'm with Prince.

That's what I'm trying to tell you...you don't have a point. Just a lot of judgemental rants. By yo spiel, I could bump into you while you walking down the street trying to get to the john to do yo bizniz, then wham!!! I knock you down and the bizniz you were rushing to got taken care of right there! You good with that right, cause it was just a bump, no? Or am I missing the point?

Yes, in all that verbiage you still managed to completely miss the point. The bit about me being judgemental gave me a good laugh, though.

Allow me: my focus here is what he considers to be humor, For him, it's funny to make jokes about the proximity between men ergo homosexuality. It's tacit, I agree, but we all get the implication - it just 'aint right. This shows his age and, to quote a well worn phrase of late, puts him on the "wrong side of history".

It's kind of like racists who don't claim to racist because it's only a joke.

As for your point - who cares how he deals with it when he's at parties.

Jeezus Christ people are so damn sensitive these days. I'm going bald, does that mean people need to stop making bald jokes? My name is Joe, should I start a group to outlaw the term "Sloppy Joes"? No why? Becasue it's beyond words how touchy people are. Effing relax.

Prince is a 5'2, Effeminate Sex Symbol who has no shortage of female fans. All of the women he is seen with are strikingly beautiful as well, so when he is out with a woman heads turn. Men are irrationally competitive and aggressive and i'm sure plenty of the women who are fans have heard a ton of caveman shit coming from boyfriends who dont understand why they love him. What i'm trying to say is Prince has probably had 30 plus years of intentional bumps from cats who were intentionally trying to punk him through body language.

Oh, my bad, i didnt see you there bruh. I'm sure it happens most when he's in the spot with a 5'10 woman who any man in the place would want but cant have. It's also a cultural thing, black folks are funny with space and do play intimidation games with body language-Prince is from North Minneapolis folks, i've been there and the shit still goes on. Try and bump into a 20 year old African American Male in North Minny or the South Side of Chicago and see what you get. Hell, try to reckless eyeball (staring) a young black male on the South Side of Chicago and you'll get worse than a 55 year old rock star saying it annoys him. Stand too close to any black person for any length of time and see if you dont get a "damn man you all up in my Kool Aide" back up off of me. It's in the culture i've heard it a million times.

I'm a short man of 47, and trust me doing well in sports or with women can put you into a ton of intentional bumping situations. I know what it's like, and when the bigger man says "uh sorry lil bruh i didnt see you" i always say "that's OK, because she does". Prince is no different than any other celebrity and he's been famously distant for 40 years and it works for him. Those who want him to symbolize what they feel is important politically are shit out of luck, he's Prince man. If he wanted to pander to any particular group he would have done so years ago, he's famously non commital. I truly believe in this day and age the PC Police dont want him to exist autonomously so they look for chinks in his image to see if he can be strung up for homophobia. Sad really, because it proves that no matter who is in power the tendency for despotism is on both sides.

This made me laugh so hard. My man is a not-terribly-tall black man from Long Beach (the scary part of Long Beach) and I have actually heard him say the above, followed by, "I ain't from here" in a tone that left no doubt that he was raised in a much different world and would eff somebody up.

Oh - and he has a gay brother. It isn't a homophobia issue. It's a personal space and respect issue.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

I don't think Prince was being directly homophobic but based on things he's said and done in the past regarding gays I can see why some would take notice. Yes, Prince, we fucking get it, you're straight.Awesome. You're uncomfortable around gays. But, no worries cause most gays are not attracted to you. Now, the straight dudes...another story. wink

@filthyrichyuppie

Sorry to make my first post such an aggressive one but....sorry.....


Are you ok in the head mate??? What the **** are you on about???

I like prince dont get me wrong but i wont stick up for him just coz hes prince. If he is a d*** then il say hes a d*** if I think he is.....but really mate....wtf are you chattin????


He was asked does he ever get annoyed and when did he last get annoyed.....he answered "after the oscars.....people tend to bump into you (when drunk i presume he meant) and its usually dudes too".....

Ok let me get this straight (no pun intended)....first of all mate.....your weird....sorry but you are....not bein abusive.....just honest.....

1.he was asked a question and answered correctly as to when he last got annoyed

2. He mentioned at the end that it was usually dudes yes....this is known as humour my cynical internet friend....a joke if you will (ie. it wouldnt be as bad if it was a gorgeous female model rather than a fat drunk middle aged man)

And 3. At what point did Arsenio Hall quickly move off the subject.....if anything.....compared to the fan questions following that he actually hung onto that question and answer because he made jokes about it being some dude getting his food all over you accidentally.....


Really sorry this has to be my first post as im a prince fan yes, and a good fella, genuine and respectable.....but in all honesty.....the one thing that annoys me more than a prince geek/know it all/fanatic.....its a "prince fanatic" that complains if their apparent "idol" happens to act honestly and in a fashion id expect any human to.

Really, get your head checked mate.....you seem to be fabricating motives and personas that literally are not there.....to the point your actually making stuff up.....arsenio hall did not move on quickly at any point at all from that question.....

Wow....if this is what the forum users here are gunna be like ( hope they arent ) then count me out...

No, I don't agree.

The majority here is sticking up for Prince in this thread. So, I see why Prince is guarded, but also can see there is a wide array of fans.

I know fans who don't like his latest work. But they don't get aggressive about that at all. And I don't think Prince feels offended that not all fans like all his work.


The OP got pretty rational and sophisticated replies of fans who don't agree with him. I can see why Prince apreciates the wide variety of backgrounds of his fans. They are not all middle of the road people, it's a bunch that discusses and sometimes fights with eachother.

I prefer that above any mindless bunch of followers of mainstream produced and marketed products like Rihanna or Kate Perry.


99% of my posts are ironic. Maybe this post sides with the other 1%.

Because we keep responding to bait threads made by banned re-users instead of ignoring them so they sink like a stone to the bottom of the forum. It's the only effective anti-trolling method. lol

My guess is it's probably that dude named Vitriol.

Can i say somethin...and im no troll, im a real prince fan!


But.....


.....whos assed???!! I dread to think that prince might actually read some of your comments dissecting his every move, notion and comment. Its slightly embarrasing dont you think??

He made a joke, he made a comment, hes a human..... Right, wrong, left, right..... Why are you that bothered?? Concentrate more on your own life and less on someone your supposedly a fan of..... He hardly did something shockin, outlandish or outrageous.....

When tmz does a piece on princes "wild, crazy comment about bumping into a man" il show some interest. Until then.... I suggest you stop micro analyzing someones every word or facial expression.


If ur a fan, act like one please. Fan not fanatic kapeesh?
