Who has said its bad to be a young Prince fan?

Whoever it is, I certainly want a word with them >.>

Tbh I don't blame people my age and younger for looking to the past for music, todays mainstream music is complete and utter garbage. At least back in the '80s and early '90s there was a good selection of differing music in the charts. These days its all computer generated shite. Everything sounds the same.

✿Prince and lawsuits. Still a better love-story than Twilight. ✿

i'm 17 and i like prince. their is no problem with young people liking P... OP is making the problem up because they are trying to seek attention from the fact they are young and listen to 'old' music. people always do it in youtube comments... grow up [Name calling snip - luv4u].

I'm feeling a bit fammy™

like I have said before in previous posts.. I'm 18 years old and live in a small town in Mississippi and if I am talking to someone about music, for the most part they like and respect Prince. They played Prince at our prom senior year, as well as other social events and everyone loved it. In college, I've found that most people like Prince. I was playing the sign o the times album in my car the other day (i think housequake was on), and one of my friends asked who that was, i said Prince, and he was like woah i need to get into Prince. I saw him about a week later and he had downloaded the whole SOTT album. So i guess i really dont know where the op is coming from lol.

I'm 19 and most of my friends like Prince in some capacity due to my obsession lol A lot of people are pleasantly surprised to hear I like Prince. I can SAFELY say that most people my age (19-20) know him for the song Kiss. Almost everyone instantly goes 'I love Kiss!' when ever I mention him.

I got two sides... and they're both friends.

There's nothing bad about being a young Prince fan, that is if you're truly a fan of his music, and not living in a fantasy world, thinking about him sexually or anything, that's just weird. I'm talking about for example, a young teenager of 15 or more, thinking about Prince, a man who's 56, that's just gross! I'm a long time Prince fan, a couple years younger than Prince, and I have 2 young adult kids that like Prince's music also now, thanks to their mom's love of his music, but my daughter is not "in love" with him. She's knows he's no longer the young, sexy musician from Purple Rain, that was in his 20's. She knows he's old enough to be her father now, that's my point. Now this is just my opinion, but to me, these really young women that I see with these older celebs, are just in it for the fame and fortune that they can give them. I honestly don't think that they truly love these people, nor would they give them the time of day, if they were not rich and famous. Look at Mick Jagger and this young woman. Do you honestly think that she is with him because of his looks and sex appeal? lol Or, consider Hugh Hefner. Do you really think that any of the women that surround him, and marry him is because of his stunning good looks, and sexy body? lol I'm in my 50's, and there's not enough money or viagra in the world that would make me want Hefner! It's disgusting and disturbing! Now I know that Prince is still a good looking man, but he's getting older, not younger, and if you're a teen and you're thinking about him in a sexual way, to me, there's just something disturbing about that.

Good to see you undersand human nature at such a young age.

And I agree. The only possible reason it could be bad to be a young Prince fan in this era is the cost of seeing him live. That's about it. Other than that it's an exciting time to be a fan (with so many upcoming projects and scheuduled releases) and unlike when I was younger he is much respected and revered universally.

Because the absolute truth is... PRINCE is a royal fucking ass! No matter how you rationalize it, justify it nor flat out choose to overlook it!!! There just is no getting around that...EVENTUALLY...no matter what! shrug

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.

As a 20 year old old soul and an overall fresh fan of Prince, I don't know why anybody would think it wrong to be a Prince fan. Music these days blows, Prince is just a small example of how great the music scene was before my generation's time.

The only downside of being a young Prince fan is that we've missed out on a lot of great concerts!

If you're 18 then you're 20 years younger than me, and you were born the year Emancipation came out.

To use a phrase you young 'uns use...... OMG!

How old does that make me feel, jeez!

Have fun dudes and dudettes. Best years of your lives. Don't take up smoking.

Hope someone new, even as half as interesting and talented as Prince comes around this decade.

If not you will have a great time discovering Prince's back catalog.

And when youve done that move on to Bowie, Neil Young, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Radiohead....

Yes, yes he does... nod

I think it's wonderful when young people actually embrace the music we grew up on. I talk to my students all the time about music, and we do discuss Prince.

MY issue is with the level of your responses at times.
One Ex: I was clicking through the Org the other day, and came across this: http://prince.org/msg/7/409341 confused
It's not that you love Prince. It's the way you express it...


That's my sincere answer.... twocents

Haha its all good. I just like to talk about his sexiness. And it aint nothing wrong with that. Prince wouldn't do all that sexy stuff & not want people to think its sexy.

LOL I'm just reacting to the message.

If ya know what I mean... lol

I can be weird like that. You'll get used to it before ya know it.

your post comes off as extremely judgemental and condescending. prince himself designed his image to be 'pure sex,' so it's misguided to act like a younger person can't have a crush on him. he's hot stuff!
