How do you think Prince dealt with...

people who hurt or disrespected him, or talked real poorly about him?
It’s not necessary, but if you can quote or give an example from him, that would be great!

Yes I think he did that, but so many more things were said about him publicly all throughout his life.

Usually, he'd have his legal team to handle it or write a song about it. However, if you were really good at pissing him off, he'd sic his legal team on you AND write a song about it, that you'd actually like more than whatever he was commercially middling around with at the time. eek lol falloff

Eye Hate U was more of a love song than anything else - “I hate you because I love you..”. He hated that she left him but he still loved her.

Shit, I forgot "PFUnk", which was a straight jab at fans.

"No More Candy 4 U" is another. "to all the haters on the internet..."

I had something more like this in mind:
He said once they if you spend your time fighting people it will stop you from your purpose.
I see the songs weve talked about here as artistic expression but he had to have a way to cope with all he put up with.
Another example of how I think he did: put a family of musicians around him who he could choose.

Yes, Prince also sung about never cheating on or treating poorly the women he dated but, alas, we know better. He was complicated and hypocritical like everyone else.

A whole bunch of 'yes men' and 'sycophants'. The reality of how that ended up, is just what the fuck it is. Prince no longer being here on this Earth with us, while they are busy doing any and all they can to make money over his dead body/ shrug

I knew from the start that I loved you with all my heart.

That it's killin' me, baby, to be without you
'Cause all I ever wanted to do was to be with you, ow!”

Yep. I think the women would concur that he was far from “The One” when it came to relationships. confused
