The way I look at it, Prince did not state his personal opinion he just posted a letter another person wrote, also he asked people to discuss it so again "he is not the one making accusations" he just wants to know people's opinion on the letter...



.



Yeah right rolleyes Because if there's one thing we know about
Prince is that he is always interested in other people's opinions.

Yeah in 2014.. but Taylor Swift, Meaghan Trainor, Kelly Clarkson, Jill Scott, Janet Jackson, and Selena Gomez did THIS year. And other than the Oscar performance and her and Tony's rather low-key tour she didn't do anything noteworthy musically in 2015, which makes peoples questioning of this award quite understandable. No woman had a bigger year THIS year than Taylor Swift if we're being honest. Maybe they're tired of awarding Taylor, but again, being objective, there's zero way to compare their impact with each other on music in 2015.

.

And don't confuse me, in terms of being talented, I've defended Lady Gaga plenty of times here on these forums, and I've even met her a few years ago randomly in New York, but bullshit is bullshit. One should call it as one sees it.

Change it one more time..

It's kind of funny.. I read that same letter posted on another thread here at the org. The letter is more of a dig at Billboard than at Gaga. retweeting it isn't the same as endorsing it, any more than sharing memes or news on facebook means we endorse those things. The only reason I would see someone in the biz posting it is to show that hmm, payola rears its head again (in the eyes of the employee who supposedly wrote that).

I don't care for Gaga at all but it's annoying when people post stuff and then delete the link later. Why on earth do you do that? If you stand by it and know it's true just leave it up.

That's how Prince sees press releases about PR30 as well - a tweet you can just delete.

Lady Gaga had a #1 album last year which shows she still has star power, but no way did someone who didn't have a single album or single in 2015 deserve the title for Woman of the Year... she hasn't even had a hit in America in what's soon to be three years. I like her music, but come on. Even Billboard's "What LG has been doing this year" timeline was boring as hell lol She did nothing of public interest this year. There were a lot of popular/successful female performers this year who could have gotten it before her.. oh well. It does kind of seem bought.

But of course Prince said that. A lot of people who seem to respect him -- Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Madonna -- ended up getting shitted on by the Purple Yoda sooner or later lol dead

Precisely. Maybe if this were 2009 or 2010 then her receiving the award would make more sense but here it is 2015 where she's been present on award shows and putting on good-at-worst performances, she hasn't had any notable impact. It all seems kinda forced considering she could've continued to rebuild herself over the course of this year before being deemed as more thsn what she is. If she received this honor next year, this whole thing wouldn't seem as calculated and manufactured as it really is.

People shouldn't hate her. She made some mistakes in her personal life apparently and it could well be those Monster Fame years were...hmmm... FUELED by somethin' something but..

She is actually a trained musician and a decent singer. Time will tell if she can bring something interesting to the table next time. She should have done a ATWIAD kind of move after Born this way.

Maybe that's why he deleted the tweet, because people focused on her as opposed to Billboard and the industry itself.. which shouldn't have happened given he ALWAYS talks about wrong with the music industry.

Prince played at a UK newspaper HQ last year (The Guardian) They are so pro Prince now in everything he does. I wonder why.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

I don't think it is a personal attack on Lady Gaga but just exposing Billboard. Award shows are pretty much rigged, so nothing really shocking.


Without all those bells, whistles and gunk. Lady Gaga does have a natural talent but I don't like when fans worship these artists like they are gods and invincible. Especially with some of the comments her fans posted. I don't get how being called irrevelant, racist and gay associates to a letter that was posted.
