Let me preface this by saying Prince is a brilliant guitar player and one of the most prolific songwriters about things to do with a vagina in the last 100 years. He also sings about purple a lot, so I guess he thought it would be a good idea to write a fight song for the NFL team in his home state. I got through about thirty seconds when it became obvious that, and I say this in the nicest way possible, this song belongs on the NFL on Glee not the NFL on FOX. If I was on the Vikings and they played this while I was coming out of the tunnel, they might as well let me slide down a rainbow and float down onto the field with a parasol, because this is the fucking gayest thing I have ever heard.
At the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 26th, Prince performed a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.” Videos popped up all over the place, that was until the Prince demanded every copy be removed claiming copyright infringement. The only flaw in Prince’s plan is that he doesn’t own the song or the video. Billboard says:
After word spread that Prince covered Radiohead’s “Creep” at Coachella, the tens of thousands who couldn’t be there ran to YouTube for a peek. Everyone was quickly denied _ even Radiohead. All videos of Prince’s unique rendition of Radiohead’s early hit were quickly taken down, leaving only a message that his label, NPG Records, had removed the clips, claiming a copyright violation. But the posted videos were shot by fans and, obviously, the song isn’t Prince’s. In a recent interview, Thom Yorke said he heard about Prince’s performance from a text message and thought it was “hilarious.” Yorke laughed when his bandmate, guitarist Ed O’Brien, said the blocking had prevented him from seeing Prince’s version of their song. “Really? He’s blocked it?” asked Yorke, who figured it was their song to block or not. “Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment.” Yorke added: “Well, tell him to unblock it. It’s our … song.”
What Radiohead seems to be forgetting here is that Prince is nuts. Like the time he was sued by Utah Jazz forward, Carlos Boozer, after he rented Boozer’s Los Angeles mansion and proceeded to paint it purple and install a beauty salon. I swear, I wouldn’t be surprised if Prince doesn’t sleep in a Peter Pan costume or ride to breakfast on a purple pony with braided hair.
During Prince’s April 20th performance at Club 3121 in Vegas, the legendary musician spotted Paris Hilton in the audience and invited her on stage. Then it got awesome:
As a “delighted” Hilton obliged, Prince, 48, handed her the mic and told the audience, “Let’s see if she can really sing,” says the witness. Hilton stormed offstage – and left the club two songs later.”
Prince would have a hard time beating up a 5th grader, but now he’s officially my new hero. Paris Hilton is completely useless in every possible way, so it’s always good to see anyone remind her of that by totally demeaning and demoralizing her. Speaking of which, how long will the Olympic committee fail to recognize that as a sport? Tell me, just how long will this travesty be tolerated?
