Who cares. I'm growing tired of this arrogant old man. Don't get me wrong, I will forever love his classic hits, but this current Prince is a MASSIVE turn off. He could fade into abscurity, for all I care.

agreed... hes boring and imature as hell

AOE is a fantastic album... but Prince is clearly off his rocker and clearly his game. Hes been a mess for about 20 years but his live performances saved him. Now hes losing that too. The other foolishness is just a turnoff as you said

Dance... Let me see you dance

I don't care about your positives reviews, every major record can buy positive reviews of an album. Just listen to PLEC ELEC, common, no wonder why nobody wanted to release it, even WBR.

My assertions are based on the following facts :

- He released no album during the last 4 years, and more than 5 years in the USA, proving that there was nobody here to make him a deal with the press such as in Europe

- He encountered many labels, he even encountered Jermaine Dupri this year

- He announced PLECTRUM ELECTRUM months before actually finding a major to distribute it. Everything shows that Prince wanted to release it during the spring of 2014, he even toured massively with the 3EG.

- Nobody wants to sign with somebody that don't make the promotion of an album he releases. No need to be Sherlock Holmes to know that. Even wreckastore are afraid to stock prince's album, cause they know they will stay on the shelf, because Prince doesn't make promotion.

Actually u have to pretty much be Sherlock Holmes to come up with these conclusions....

Did this dude actually say Jermaine Dupri...lol dead

Prince has not been "signed" for years and years! Since leaving WB, he's mainly done 1 album deals or found other distribution methods. Furthermore, WB didn't just sign him in exchange for the re-editions - they owned the rights and, as part of this deal they (according to you) didn't really want to do they made the unprecedented move of GIVING HIM BACK HIS MASTERS! A move that, reportedly, pissed off all the other majors as they were worried that other artists would be demanding the same.

Those are the facts - not your speculative assumptions. And to call the hit and run gigs he did a "promotional" tour for an album is laughable. An artist can go out and test the water with an audience to see how the tracks sound and the reaction they get and also work the band, getting them used to playing to various crowds etc. It was anything but a promotional "tour" and, yet, even so, the press was absolutely alight with positivity about Prince at the time.

As Bart would say - "You're just making shit up!"

i guess for me, i don't really mind if he killed his accounts. first of all i never really went there anyway, since i'm not all that into social media, personally. second, maybe he just felt like he needed a change.

perhaps there will be another multimedia website down the line? we know he isn't stupid, and many of his business decisions have been a step or two before his time. i'll assume the best, knowing that surprises like this one are just alll part of the ride i choose to sign up for. lol

then again, i don't know what was being said online about him at these sites? if it's half as bad as some of what is posted here, i can see the problem. so maybe it really was because of negativity in the social media world. lots of creepy folks on the nets. i get super tired of the crap remarks posted on websites like this one myself, and god help me if i was famous like prince. poor guy. unnecessary mockery riffing on the dude's looks and work.

this is an excerpt from the link below:

http://funkatopia.com/funk-news/prince-cancels-social-media-again/

. . .

Many were beginning to be excited that Prince was finally letting up on the reigns of his empire and letting people see the videos, hear snippets of new unreleased material, display new photos, and showcase concert clips. But with public display comes public criticism. The very crux and dark circumstances that signed the death certificate of the famed NPG Music Club.

A source close says that once the negativity starts outweighing the usefulness of the medium, it simply goes away. The onslaught of silly negative comments from flamers that start ridiculous arguments and dissension among the loyal fans is the typical reason for the disappearance. “Prince is all about positivity and when that goes away, so does he, so if I had to guess why he made this decision, I would first start there.”, the insider shared.

And those comments were growing like weeds on all of the social media sources. An unfounded silly “This sucks” statement that would set up a slew of attacks and unnecessary activity that muddied up the purpose of the medium. Actions that are eerily similar to the NPGMC fiasco.

. . .

Editors Note (Mr. C): “If we had to speculate on our own, I would say it’s partially to do with the negativity as mentioned above and partially to do with the Ferguson case. Prince has made statements about the Treyvon Martin situation when it happened, so we know that he has some political leanings when it comes to cases like this. But in all of it, it makes no matter. We’re back to being on his schedule again.”

I looked at a couple of things Prince and 3EG posted on Facebook and Twitter and to be honest, I didn't see much at all in terms of negative comments. But I did think Prince was going through some awkward growing pains on social media. When I saw the picture of him holding a DLSR in a mirror, I felt like he was falling into some stereotypical traps in terms of celebrity and how to present himself online. He was over-thinking it. Simple cell phone backstage photos, restaurant photos, recording studio photos would have been fine. He didn't need to shoot album cover type extreme close-ups, and deal with issues that come with that level of clarity. Simple "Wheels up! London here we come" type comments were all that was needed. He was approaching things as if everything he posted had to have deep purpose, or possibly hidden meaning.

I think he shut down his accounts as just another step of passive-aggressive behavior meant to pressure WB because they didn't release two more albums this year. Blaming the fans may be a way of doing it indirectly, but if those albums were coming out, there is no way he would have shut down the promotion machine over flame wars if there really were any on his offical accounts. It has seemed like he and WB were at odds since the Purple Rain announcement. It's a slap in the face at the label, who more than likely insisted he join Facebook and Twitter in the first place, and the casual Prince fans who more than likely enjoyed his pages. The hardcore fans won't care either way. They will still trade bootlegs, and be right there waiting on him when the next project comes out.

Yeah generally dont see too much negitivity on them myself, if he's pulled it from them reasons then I guess he felt exposed and possibly did read what was being written.....

Which I kind of doubt he took the time to even read anything on there or cared what is said.

So must be to do with something else, the girls are all quiet too so I think something going on in the backgroud in more likley because Hannah is usually really active.

This is YOUR OPINION on PLEC, some people like this album.

.

This proves absolutely ZERO, except for the fact that you continue to produce nothing except PURE speculation on your part based on some facts. Your posts prove only one thing, that you care about sales more than anyone here (congrats), with the flimsy argument that if his albums don't sell there won't be any more albums from Prince which is the dumbest speculation possible.

So, where are the people who liked this album ? Why nobody buys it ? even on this forum some didn't buy it

My speculations, predictions call it what you like, proved to be what is happening now. Something was going wrong with the distribution of PE, and something is going wrong now with WB. And it's not hard to know why.

[Edited 11/26/14 14:00pm]

Not only you're injuring, like other people that have no arguments, but things you say are completely false. Prince during the last twenty years has signed many distribution deals with major records or big firms. Including :

- EMI in 1996/97 for EMANCIPATION

- ARISTA in 1999 for RAVE

- COLUMBIA in 2004/2005 with MUSICOLOGY

- UNIVERSAL in 2006

- Sony in 2007 with PLANET EARTh + a distribution deal with the mail on Sunday

- TARGET with LOTUS FLOWER in the USA. In Europe, only one independant distributor in France proposed to release it.

- 2010 with deals with the press in 5 country in Europe to release 2010

So, he desperatly need to be signed, if he wants to release an album GLOBALLY, in a physical form and with profit.

Those are the facts - not my speculative assumptions, as you said.

The master thing is laughable. As many pointed out before, prince is one of the few big star to not have his master back ALREADY. Even smaller artist negociate their masters in the initial contract. There wouldn' t have been no precedent in an eventual trial. We are talking about albums whose catalog sales are terribly weak. You think the master of LOVESEXY deserve a trial ? Who cares ? It sells about a thousand copies a year. Laughable

Since Prince had his master back, that mean that WB had less interest into produce a music video, etc.

Most everyone is reading far too much into this and then using it as an excuse to heap personal criticism on a guy that very few know really well.

I see the deletion of his Facebook account as a positive step. If you were to ask me why I thought he did it, I think the answer is simple not sinister: It was eating into his creativity and time.

(I know my opinion assumes that he was actively and personally involved with the Twitter and Facebook accounts, which he seemed to have been.)

In the past couple of weeks, the number of photos and shares increased pretty dramatically, especially right before the close. That would imply that he had started to spend more of his time handling that stuff (or, at the very least, giving his OK). Speaking as an artist and musician myself, whenever I find my online activity starts to consume both my time and my mind (thinking about what I'll post today, what people said, what they might think, etc.), it becomes a very unhelpful and unhealthy relationship. The best way to deal with it is to delete most everything, get back into my creative routines, and then slowly ease back into the virtual world.

Maybe that's what he's done. Let's just be patient and just hold up on the ill-founded negative criticisms. You never know what's really going on behind the scenes in any person's life, especially Prince's.

Peace.

Many were beginning to be excited that Prince was finally letting up on the reigns of his empire and letting people see the videos, hear snippets of new unreleased material, display new photos, and showcase concert clips. But with public display comes public criticism. The very crux and dark circumstances that signed the death certificate of the famed NPG Music Club.

A source close says that once the negativity starts outweighing the usefulness of the medium, it simply goes away. The onslaught of silly negative comments from flamers that start ridiculous arguments and dissension among the loyal fans is the typical reason for the disappearance. “Prince is all about positivity and when that goes away, so does he, so if I had to guess why he made this decision, I would first start there.”, the insider shared.

And those comments were growing like weeds on all of the social media sources. An unfounded silly “This sucks” statement that would set up a slew of attacks and unnecessary activity that muddied up the purpose of the medium. Actions that are eerily similar to the NPGMC fiasco.

Editors Note (Mr. C): “If we had to speculate on our own, I would say it’s partially to do with the negativity as mentioned above and partially to do with the Ferguson case. Prince has made statements about the Treyvon Martin situation when it happened, so we know that he has some political leanings when it comes to cases like this. But in all of it, it makes no matter.

I watched the Prince spreecast with Funkenberry last night. What became evident is 3EG is likely still active. The reason why npgmc closed was fan negativity. I believe Prince is likely questioning why sales declined swift for the two new albums. Funkenberry said it was all pure speculation why Prince closed the account but also he sort of gave away that something happened and he was not at liberty to say! So did something happen with WB? When things failed in past always looked for things to blame. I thought Prince going to social media was hatched from folk telling him it is the perfect way to promote an album. WB promotion has been sketchy. So if I'd he feel like the negativity he seen on social media hurt album sales?? I believe 3EG, Josh are still active. I believe that this is not because of Ferguson because something would have been announced. I think it failed to sell albums. It takes energy to do and was not worth what getting out of it. I remember also that Prince hang with youth quote that was controversial. They thought a social media blitz would sell albums.
Granted I hope he continues to utilize internet, guess if he doesn't like where people can express criticism he could just keep an internet store, if not that is like tossing out cash register!!

This is YOUR OPINION on PLEC, some people like this album.

This proves absolutely ZERO, except for the fact that you continue to produce nothing except PURE speculation on your part based on some facts. Your posts prove only one thing, that you care about sales more than anyone here (congrats), with the flimsy argument that if his albums don't sell there won't be any more albums from Prince which is the dumbest speculation possible.

So, where are the people who liked this album ? Why nobody buys it ? even on this forum some didn't buy it

My speculations, predictions call it what you like, proved to be what is happening now. Something was going wrong with the distribution of PE, and something is going wrong now with WB. And it's not hard to know why.

Stupid question. People did buy it, numbers proves this, you're jus not satisfied with the number.

So, I didn't buy 20ten, but I still listen to it & enjoy it.

WRONG

I watched the Prince spreecast with Funkenberry last night. What became evident is 3EG is likely still active. The reason why npgmc closed was fan negativity. I believe Prince is likely questioning why sales declined swift for the two new albums. Funkenberry said it was all pure speculation why Prince closed the account but also he sort of gave away that something happened and he was not at liberty to say! So did something happen with WB? When things failed in past always looked for things to blame. I thought Prince going to social media was hatched from folk telling him it is the perfect way to promote an album. WB promotion has been sketchy. So if I'd he feel like the negativity he seen on social media hurt album sales?? I believe 3EG, Josh are still active. I believe that this is not because of Ferguson because something would have been announced. I think it failed to sell albums. It takes energy to do and was not worth what getting out of it. I remember also that Prince hang with youth quote that was controversial. They thought a social media blitz would sell albums. Granted I hope he continues to utilize internet, guess if he doesn't like where people can express criticism he could just keep an internet store, if not that is like tossing out cash register!! I personally find Facebook, twitter odd, it is not much of a product, simply put you the user are the product.



Yeah he's essentially pulled all forms of Self promotion from under WB, could be a fight back and their lack of promotion? Kind of like "Well you aint promoted my shit, so why should I?" lol

I do hope that WB has already received all the bonus materials needed for these albums because if they do not have those yet this could mean another bad contract for mr Prince and bad product for the fans. (fams do not need remasters anyway)

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

Yeah, I think if they dont get any Bonus material it will just be binned altogether and a lenghty lawsuit between WB and Prince will commence. lol

They know as well as us, no Bonus no Sales to the only real people who are bothered (Fans)

WRONG

70.000 ex sold IN THE WORLD, and you think that Prince's fan bought it ? WRONG

And it's apparently Prince concern, not mine. How can one be satisfied with such low numbers when you toured with 3EG in front of hundred of thousand people this year ?

Everytime Prince has a flop, he changes his formula.

Editors Note (Mr. C): “If we had to speculate on our own, I would say it’s partially to do with the negativity as mentioned above and partially to do with the Ferguson case. Prince has made statements about the Treyvon Martin situation when it happened, so we know that he has some political leanings when it comes to cases like this. But in all of it, it makes no matter. We’re back to being on his schedule again.”

100% totally agree with you! Thinking about it this makes sense to whats gone on in the past.

This. I thought of Prince's Treyvon comments immediately when the accounts were pulled - the timing to Ferguson was too close. He clearly had strong opinions about the Treyvon case, so he would have strong feelings about Fergsuon as well and maybe wouldn't not want to be part of the FB and Twitter cesspools surrounding it. Of course, given that he wasn't running the accounts himself, my theory doesn't make all that much sense. But the timing (pulling the accounts the day after the grand jury announcement) was weird.
