The Last Moment Prince Was Great And Mattered

Yup, folks, Prince's ass-cheeks outfit at the MTV Video Music Awards show was the last time Prince was great and mattered at all to the public. Sad thing it was way back in 1991. Last time Prince did something that mattered to the public was 25 years ago.

Unlike most artists past their prime and heyday, Prince mattered until the very end. You could argue that his last great hit was TMBGITW in 1994 but he still toured in arenas, had sold out shows, released great music (albeit splattered onto various albums and no longer as cohesively as in the past), did the greatest Superbowl halftime show of all times, kept on improving his skills as a live musician, and played gigs in his later years that are right up there with his best shows and aftershows in his 80s glory days , for example Montreux 2009, Melkweeg in Amsterdam, the Paradiso in Amsterdam, the tours with 3rd Eye Girl, the Piano and a Microphone tour.....etc. etc. etc.

-

Keep in mind that he was too busy dealing with other stuff (WB battle, ownership of the masters, all kinds of other things) so the focus was probably no longer on making hits (in a time where making hits is no longer what it used to be, with Payola and Clear Channel and whatnot).

.

But to say that his last great moment that mattered was the assless pants moment in 1991 is just ridiculous.

No, no, no. I knew some of you would mention the Super Bowl, but let's be honest, EVERYBODY who plays the Super Bowl is talked about the next few days. My God, a dancer wearing a goofy shark costume was the talk of the nation after Katy Perry did the Super Bowl. Prince talk after the Super Bowl was just par for the course with that gig.

.

No, the last time there was buzz and talk about Prince was because of those ass pants. Twenty-five years ago. Nothing since then.

Ahh, SO FINE...a very funny movie. One that got away from the big audience it deserved. And, yes, Prince did plagiarize those ass-pants.

From the moment he was born to the day of his death, from now till all infinity/eternity he will matter. Yes PRINCE'S life mattered. Again, we are not talking about a one hit wonder, or someone who had glib, superficial charm. Nope leave that to the biebers, timberlakes, thicks of this world.

We are talking about the greatest artist to ever live on this planet and as far as I'm concerned any planet. His contributions, talent, drive, sheer determination, intellect and passion are inestimable. In a way to me he is still alive, wow I can't believe that some people don't, cant, won't see whats right in front of their face. He was more than just an ASS!!

Okay troll, when was the last time YOU were great and mattered? Prince's legacy will live on long after his transition and long after you. I doubt bridges and monuments will be lit in your honor when you check out. Sorry, had to be said.

And yet here you are 20 something years later taking precious time away from life, friends, and family to post this. ICYMI - Sounds like you're day drunk and ruminating or just plain wasting your life.

As Rob Sheffield said, he remained a man who could reduce any room to rubble just by walking in until the day he died. So, yeah I beg to differ.

You are either a bad listener or a total starf*cker, a person who only sees relevance in anything that is shrouded in the guise of fame. But even if that were true, you have left out what others have mentioned here about the Superbowl performance, the 2004 Grammys, the blistering solo at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony for George Harrison, and a host of other things. 3121, many tracks off of Lotusflow3r ("Valentina" and "ol' Skool Company" spring to mind), HitNRun 1&2, ad nauseum ad infinitum.

Or, you're just a troll.

Folks who already made up their mind about something to the point they think that's the universal truth. This is the reason I lurked until 21/4 happened and couldn't handle the grief anymore. neutral


And then there are org cannon song interpretations that extend into P's life & P's associates' lives. Mind you, I LOVE reading into P's head, but I'll never present my humble opinions as definitive facts.

Anyone is entitled to opinions, but let's not forget that they are just ...that.

And let's not forget that we are united in love and grief of one sexy MF! After all, that's the only reason I decided to join here in earnest despite crippling shyness. Love41another, yo.

The Last Moment Prince Was Great And Mattered.

About four hours ago....when I was coming back from work actualy. I'm sure there will be a next moment when it will happen again.

No, I am a fan of Prince who actually says things other than, "'If I Was Your Girlfriend' is great."

.

I bring reality here. Yes, "Mountains" was Prince's last great song. Yes, those ass cheek pants was the last time Prince mattered to the public. Yes, Prince was a fool for removing himself from youtube and for releasing download only albums. Yes, "Hypno Paradise" is one of Prince's top ten greatest songs of all time. Yes, the album "Come" is better than the album "Sign O' The Times."

.

I am a real Prince fan. Probably the only one here. I speak truth. Unafraid to say things that may be deemed unpopular. For that I am labelled a troll? OK, from now on I will only post, "'If I Was Your Girlfriend' is a masterpiece." Is that what you all want here. Uniformity? All think alike? God, if that is so, then you sure learned nothing from Prince and his music.
