Rock group Arcade Fire was in Minneapolis this past weekend, and in a nod to the local hero, they covered Prince’s 1981 classic “Controversy.”
In a rare late-night TV interview and performance on Arsenio, Prince proved there can never be enough fog.
Prince promised it would be a performance Arsenio would never forget. “Just incase you haven’t heard,” Prince wrote. “I’ve been practicing and I’ve gotten pretty good now.”
Billy Joel rules New York. Prince has got a lock on Minnesota. But who takes hold of Washington? Hint, it’s someone who’s not nearly as cool as Nirvana.
Prince has had as many hairstyles as he’s had studio albums. See them all in this highly entertaining collection of the Purple One’s always-evolving look.
He also teased fans with talk of revealing music from his legendary “vault” of unreleased recordings to counter the numerous demo versions of older material floating around on the web.
There are tales of Prince parties in which he orders flapjacks for everyone just before dawn. Sometimes the story’s fake, and sometimes the story’s real. So when it’s 4:30 a.m. and Prince is dancing about eight feet away from you, there’s always a chance that this isn’t surreal enough.
The Purple One was very funny and a bit meta when it came to poking fun at his own cryptic image.
“Prince will be remembered for making some of the most beautiful music ever created and for hating his fans,” one fan wrote.
Prince isn’t just a fan of ‘New Girl,’ he’s a Nick and Jess shipper. Yes, the Purple One doesn’t just like the show, he’s downright obsessed.
