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.

Lol man, thanks for the laugh, seriously that is funny lol

Will people finally start to belive that mr Prince does NOT have a vision, an idea, a plan w.r.t. marketing his products and works? Monetizing on his music? Videos? Recordings?

Hey I got two albums this year from Prince, more than can be said for most years. I am happy with 2014.

I wonder what is going on? Is Prince going off the grid like back in 2012, where he wasn't seen or heard from.

Hasn't this always been the case. Having no plan and doing things on a whim/instict. Dont understand why so many people are surprised or pissed off about this

Is Purpleessense actually Prince? I've always been confused as to who operates that twitter account.

I blame the Lovesex girl, it was akin to asking Mcauly Kaulkin to host the Oscars, or however you spell his name. Some things just make no sense, this was one of them.

Why?

Mr Prince has been active in music since 1978.

Just look back and you can see trends.

Can't you?

Why is it Prince's job to market the CDs, Why is WB not doing any marketing for this project?

Did he market his stuff earlier this year?

There weren't even CD's yet he partied in London.

Or last year? Hmm?

WB was out of the picture since previous millennium.

If you're waiting for official confirmation of something in Prince land you're going to be waiting a very long time.

@Purplessence is indeed real. There's a couple of (heavily active) accounts on Twitter that are in actuality being secretly run by his PR team. This is standard practice in the business these days. Those accounts are the ones that first started retweeting the @Purplessence account.

As for @Prince_NPG? Also real - in a sense. That account is ran by Live Nation. It first started when Prince began working with Live Nation on the Welcome 2 America tour. It then went quiet when he stopped working with Live Nation.

Then, when the launch party happened last month or the month before - that account started tweeting again. Guess who sponsored the launch party and had their logo on the video stream?? Drumroll please...... Live Nation. In fact as I recall, that account began tweeting again on that exact same day.

He's reforming the Revolution just in time for the Purple Rain remaster!!! 2015 is gonna be BIG!!! PS - I was much more upset when the bootleg trading sites were all shut down. His online presence was kind of C-grade anyway.

The way I see it, Prince demonstrated the smallest ego ever known to show business by foregoing national TV exposure and instead letting his band members have it.

Maybe yes, maybe no...

fact is we got new music...

He is not good in promoting himself, that`s true...smile

It seemed for a while with all the new internet presences on fb and twitter, he finally accepted to be there...

I still think we will see him soon there again, but these games he is playing are getting a bit lame...

Fair enough so. Maybe I haven't been paying enough attention but I am yet to see either purpleessence or prince_NPG tweet anything before it appeared elsewhere on the internet. Even Funkenberry got actual exclusives. But sure what harm, when there's news there's news.

WB did all they can. They were happy to foot the entire bill for promoting the new album, do all the leg work, create all the lyric videos, put out magazine ads, billboards, tube station posters and get the press to review the album. They probably even paid for the (completely unrelated) online album launch which showcased songs never before heard of, completely ignoring the new album entirely. Hell, Prince didnt even have to show up for the album announcement on live TV! On top of that WB threw in an additional album to release at the same time as the new album, no doubt at Prince's request, and probably gave him a nice fat fee upfront for the albums.

And...... All they probably really want in return is for Prince to help them rerelease Purple Rain with some quality additional extras.

As far as I can tell, Prince has shafted WB and kicked them in the balls. WB did all they can considering the artist they tried to promote went out of his way to fuck things up. Prince is a fucking moron and is becoming more and more moronic the older he gets. The saddest thing about it is there will not be many around to care once he finally deletes himself completely out of the history books. Im certainly at that stage now - I couldnt care less.

If WB did not put the 'help to rerelease Purple Rain with some quality additional extras' in stone then they really did not learn their lesson well in the previous century.

How can a company make money with a person like P if stuff is not in writing?

I mean: why else does P call this a CONtract?

He doesn't like to be restricted, bound by the CONtract.

He can't behave, work professionally within a CONtract.

And now he is back in a CONtract I guess. (!)

Does WB even need his help? He doesn't own the masters to those recordings yet does he?

Why is this a game? All he did was close a few accounts. Is there a law that says that once you're on twitbook, you have to stay there forever?

This isnt an official source IMO, I think it if was it would have been taken down, if they have gone to the trouble to get rid of the Official NPG twitter too then this would have also gone.

Dont think Prince would want a festival name associated with an Official account in anyway myself.
