when you watch Prince in his interviews how do you assume his personality

What I mean is how do you see him? Do you see him as a good guy in interviews or as a bad guy?

Do you think he lives you to his complexity? How do you assume he is?

I think he is a balanced socialized person, whom people BELIEVE that he is quiet; he really isn't.

I think he is secretly the life of the party; but he tries to retain himself because he knows he says to much. I think he is a deep thinker; but her prefers not to think to much on just one topic. He likes to move around & he doesn't like to stay on one project for very long. He is always doing a million things in one second. And very creative & smart, Of course.

They negatives (I know you've been waiting for this.) I see is he lives in his world to much. Which ISN'T a bad thing; BUT when it comes to coilding his world with the reality he doesn't fare as well.

He gets taken for granted to easily. I think he may believe what others say alot. he likes to make it seem like he doesn't care what others thing; BUT he does.

Hes eccentric obviously & has organized thought process; but unorganized life. or the reverse.

IDK razz what do you think

**EDIT**

(my computer was dying)

I think If I we're to meet him. It would probably be super interesting to talk about philosphy with him cause we have the same views about religion. I'm pretty into conspiracy & I know hes dealt with that too. He'd probably go all day on that one topic even though he likes to jump topics.

I probably would be looking around the room or fixing my hair in someones mirror. He probably would think that I wasn't listening even though I was. THEN he'd probably aruge me down on the imporants of the information he's talking about. I'd probably start screaming then I'd ignore him.

I'd probably apologize after thinking about it & we have tea. LMAO razz

I percieve him as a guy thats quiet and soft spoken in interviews because he may not know the interviewer well. He is quiet and observing at first and after he gets to know you well, he wont stop talking. He wants the world to see him how he wants to be seen but in private he is a slightly different person. He is funny, witty, and he talks too much. He cares about what others think about him but not to an extreme extent. He manipulates how we percieve him alot when in reality he is just a chill guy who likes to laugh, eat popcorn, watch movies, watch TV, eat pizza, spinach eating kinda guy. Very normal guy indeed.

Let's not forget that an artist, when interviewed, is still playing a role.
Oh and I'm sure Prince's views on religion are different from mine!

There are far too many interviews that I wished I had never seen ... The brilliance of his musoc does not reflect in his personality (with or without the masks).

I always hoped for a more enlightened person with less of an ego than in fact he looks like to be (especially in interviews). Must say though that he has improved a lot. Ultimate low, interview-wise, was the NPS-period for me ...

He comes off more chilled out and humble now than in the past. But I think he is still quite insecure, and he has said many things in the past that are weirdish and bordering ridiculous. I think if you get into his inner circle he might be a aimable and funny guy, but i think he probably is quickly irritated and quite short tempered. Just my two cent, i might be completely off obviously!
RIP Prince: thank U 4 a funky Time!

It sounds like you have met him. Either that, or you identify with him and this is how you are. wink

I swear he has multiple personalitys sometimes....since hes a gemini and all... lol

But i love the interviews were he can joke and be laid back, like in an MTV news interview in 1999..i think..But then other times he gets really shy and talks really quietly. To answer the question i have always percieved Prince as a good guy from the actual content of what he says in interviews

Hmmm all this personality analyzing has got me wanting to analyze some folks here.

I'm going to write out an analyist of all those who answer here. smile *puts on bullet proof vest* I'm ready.

I'll edit later.

Yeah I identify with him. Have I met him? I cant say but its not hard to see through him. Also, read the books or interviews about him with quotes and input from people who know him all too well. Eric Leeds, former girlfriends, former bandmates, current bandmantes, etc. This will give you a peek inside of how he really is.

I always felt that he sounds and looks much more "normal" and balanced that u'd think. He may say a few cryptic or strange thing every once in a while but in the end he looks like just another dude, a bit shy maybe.

I precieve him as being very mysterious which makes him even more appealing in my humble opinion. I would so love to talk to Prince, see what makes him tick hmm hrmph what makes him laugh, what makes him cry,if he does cry, what worries him, things like that. We know so little of this man we admire. Prince if your reading this listen, inquiring minds want to know more about you.

I agree, too many interviews that should not have been lol

.

I did/do enjoy the interviews from the early -mid 1980s they still had a air of innocence and gave a cool reflection of his utopian ideals of the music and scene he was creating. After that time, it was lost. I like his 1997/98 interviews, he seemed relaxed about his career and reflected a LOT on his past those he worked with and music even bringing up outtakes like Make Your Momma Happy and Sexual Suicide, he feel and admiration of the Revolution and Lisa Colemans playing as well as Brown Mark on bass...

The interview I find to be the most awkward is the one in the 90's when he was wearing a mask and mayte was sitting next to him and he would whisper things in her ear so he wouldn't have to talk. I just sat there like... whofarted

I don't know how to assume his personality, because I don't think he has ever shown the "real" Prince in interviews. I think that Prince is very distrusting of doing interviews, and I think that he just plays with those that interview him, saying all sorts of things that may be true or not. Prince's true personality is probably very different than the one(s) he does on interviews. I think that the only way that you will know his true personality is if you know him personally and intimately.
