Yeah, hold fire til we know I'd say. Could be maintenance / housekeeping, could be consolidation to one portal, and possibly an indication that Warners might like something more coherent and 'branded' to link in with Purple Rain re-issue. Also, if NPG Twitter is gone too then that would point to consolidation rather than scorched earth.

.

...or like a few have summised it could be he was getting too much flack for recent pics - I nearly commented on one recently, where he has a gold headband to say Wonder Woman - others may not have held back!!!

.

Dr F hasn't commented to say he has no comment or doesn't know as yet so imagine there is method to this particular madness.

Strangely enough a couple of days ago a new video was posted to the princevevo channel on YT, where videos had been posted when Prince was on Kobalt. Breakfast Can Wait is still there, too.

I am not sure what to make of it, though lol

Many Prince fans were shocked this morning when they discovered that the ‘official’ Prince and 3rd Eye Girl twitter account was no more!

@3rdEyeGirl had been a major outlet and source for ‘official’ Prince and 3rd Eye Girl info, including tour announcements, for Prince fans but it seems, for now, that account has been pulled.

Why?

Could it be that Prince has decided to pull the plug on 3rd Eye Girl, possibly in light of a new project? Could it be that the Twitter outlet had become, not only a major outlet and PR machine, but also a bit of a headache, what with the whole Toronto gig fiasco last month, was it too much to maintain and do right?
Was it always the plan to phase out the @3rdEyeGirl account in favour of the most recently added, and still active, @Purplessence account?

I’ll guess we will never know the true reason behind @3rdEyeGirl’s disappearance, band members Hannah Ford Welton, Ida Nielson and Donna Grantis still remain active on their personal accounts so maybe you should keep locked there for any further info regarding 3EG.

Our guess, Prince has disabled the account while he works on his new project, a more funk/jazz/soul based record alongside NPGQ.

Watch this space….

Well there ya go! They would know what's going on since 3EG is their band.

Probably has something to do with the "November surprise", or lack thereof.

I hope he rejoins or puts his pages back up. It was so great to have a little insight into his purple world. If people are giving him hate for his hair then fuck em. The guy can do what the hell he wants with his hair.

Do you guys really need more photos of Prince on a bad hair day?!? wink
Seriously, this does seem like the end of 3rdEyeGirl. It's probably the total lack of success of this project that made him think, why bother... The excitement he created early in the year is totally gone. Time for the next project. A jazz/soul album? That would be good.

Thank god. Was growing tired of all of their banal posts showing up in my facebook news feed and links to the same 3 videos. And the constant linking to positive reviews from 2-12 months prior. It was pretty shameless.

Awwwww! You really think his wittle bitty feelings were so hurt by me talking about his 'fro on the Org, that he took down his FB and Twitter pages because of me? I'm touched but he could have just gone to a hair salon. razz

How can he be moving on from, or be more branded than a "Prince" FB account. It's not a "the end of 3rdEyeGirl" situation, it's another moodswing is all confused

Guys, guys. He's obviously so busy working on the PR reissue that he just has no time to waste on all these social medias.

Wishful thinking I know but I went and checked some purple rain related twitter handles JUST IN CASE anyway.

I am afraid Prince comes off as a very "unreliable artist":

He promissed us the Purple Rain remaster, although I can't exactly remember the name of the interview where he spoke about this release.


And now this, Prince is so inconsistent.

2013 will be big.... 2014 will be big (purple?)....... I AM AFRAID NOT......





He is so unreliable...... sad sad sad sad sad sad sad sad

Maybe I'm the only one who thinks that Prince has the sacred right to not love Facebook or youtube and make the choice to not publish his work on the net. As fan I'm, in some way, disappointed but I would be more disappointed if he stops to make albums or live shows where human beings, Prince included, are in the same place and not behind a monitor, celebrating Art.

Consolidation folks, why have two accounts? Makes sense to have one, he is hoping all the followers from 3rdeyegirl will sub to purpleessence, there were only like 2k over there, where 3rdeye had about 180k.

Maybe this is the end of the 3rdEyeGirl era. He's crazy enough to do it, a mere few months after the debut album.

Honestly, I'm ashamed to say I hope that's the case. 3rdEyeGirl are stale.

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

What about his FB and YT accounts? Why yank them all if he's condolidating Twitter? I haven't checked all this shit out because I'd rather just complain while others do the work.
