he is great.  twin cities know it.

When the day turns into the last day of all time
I can say, I hope U are in these arms of mine
And when the night falls before that day I will cry
I will cry tears of joy cause after U all one can do is die

I remember the soundtrack for the first Batman movie... I was crazy about that movie and bought everything about it that I could get my hands on... including the Prince soundtrack... so cheesy now that I think about it...

I hate Prince. Purple Rain is one of the worst songs in my opinion.

The very first cassette I ever owned.  I  think Prince's The Hits 1 & 2 are musts for any collection.  Sadly, I don't own any of his albums (Purple Rain, Sign O' the Times, 1999, etc)

Prince signs Columbia record deal
 
Music star Prince, who once complained he was a "slave" to a record label, has signed to Sony subsidiary Columbia.
 
The deal only applies to Prince's forthcoming album Musicology, which the label will release worldwide in April.

In the early 1990s, Prince said former label Warner could not keep up with his prolific output, so he performed with the word "slave" on his face.

The album coincides with Prince's first tour in six years, which begins in Nevada, US, on Saturday.

In a cryptic statement, Prince said: "I am really an artist and musician at heart, that's what I do. Musicology has no boundaries or formats.

"It is long overdue to return to the art and craft of music - that's what this album is about. School's in session."

Symbol

Prince, 45, enjoyed his greatest success with Warner Brothers, which signed him in 1977 and released albums such as Purple Rain, Sign O' the Times and Diamonds and Pearls.

At one stage, he renegotiated a lucrative contract that also made him a vice-president of the label.

But as his relationship with the company deteriorated, he changed his name to an unpronouncable symbol and The Artist Formerly Known As Prince.

After leaving Warner, he released a series of albums on independent labels and 1999's Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic on Arista Records.

Finally! A label that's going to treat him right!  Plus if they get the rights to his vault... oh, my.

Prince terrorist-fantasy video draws fire

MINNEAPOLIS -- The musician Prince is drawing fire for a new video that portrays an Arab-American girl envisioning herself blowing up an airport. The video for the song "Cinnamon Girl" shows the girl, played by 14-year-old Oscar nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes of the movie "Whale Rider," facing harassment from schoolmates and witnessing racism in the wake of an attack that mirrors 9/11. Steve Silberfarb, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota, said he applauds the anti-harassment message, but found a dream sequence in which the girl detonates a bomb at an airport disturbing. "Even allowing for the right of an artist to express himself, I think it's misguided and offensive," Silberfarb said. "Her frustration is understandable. The violence is not." (AP)

That's why it's a dream sequence.

So are they going to send Prince a letter that he's on the "no-fly" list or will they wait until he tries to fly somewhere to tell him?
