Re: Prince @ Superbowl

In between the Grammy's and commercials this evening Prince had a nice spot thanking everyone for watching and/or participating in his Superbowl performance.  It was quite nice. All's well that ends well.  smile

Re: Prince @ Superbowl

The funny thing about the "phallic" controversy is that a few years ago Prince turned Jehova's Witness and hasn't said a curse word since then. So you think he's going to do that? The days of him being controversial are long gone. Now he's just a talented musician. Which is great, because I always felt that his controversial antics outshined his musical prowess.

Re: Prince @ Superbowl

very under-rated guitar player. There's a dark cloud over him because he comes off as being a little 'wierd.'
I wonder how/why he became Jehovah's witness out of all religions? I think the US labels that sect a cult and not a religion. My girlfriends family members are J.W. and are nothing like the stereotypes that popculture have placed on them. They're normal people.  I just wonder why Prince chose it.

Re: Prince @ Superbowl

He grew up as a Seventh Day Adventist......there's some reading out there on him switching, but I haven't come across a "why" yet?  The one article I read did tell about him going from house to house.  Imagine going to your door and you open it and there is Prince with a copy of The WatchTower.....one guy said he just about flipped out and invited him in.....

Re: Prince @ Superbowl

I thought Prince's thank you to the fans was a pretty classy gesture considering whether he had to pay for the ad or if it was a perk in his contract with CBS to do the Superbowl gig. Regardless it's the thought that counts. It reminded me of a similar gesture after Barry Zito signed with the SF Giants he took out a full page ad in the SF Chronicle thanking all the fans in Oakland for supporting him during his time with the A's. In a follow up TV interview he asked the A's fans come see him in SF when the A's are out of town. By the way Barry is a fledgling guitar player/singer/songwriter, not exactly John Mayer yet.

Re: Prince @ Superbowl

Jehovah's Witnesses frequently ring my doorbell.  I wonder if they heard I need help or something???!!!  They have a meeting place really closeby, unfortunately Prince has never come to my door.  Anyone have a link to the commerical?  I've been playing Prince's music since the superbowl and I read his sales on Amazon are up over 600%!!! "Let's have a dance party...we're about to get funky...1+1+1=3"  Love the horns in addition to the funk...The last thing I've bought Prince was Musicology, what's good after that?
