Somebody’s trying to channel Jimi Hendrix…! Wow…1984 then and now. It’s been 30 years since Prince’s debut album. That’s crazy. And although he is a psycho talented rock star he still comes off as pretentious and weird as ever.
Asked whether he has an iPhone, he scoffs and says, “Are you serious? Hell, no.”
In fact, the star has little need to communicate with anyone outside his inner circle. And even they don’t have many direct conversations with him.
“This organization is different than most, in the sense that we don’t take directions from the outside world,” he explains. “It’s like a galaxy. The sun is in the center giving off energy, and everything revolves around it…Nobody really talks to me. Nobody talks to me a lot.”
Prince prefers to focus his energy instead on performing and writing. But don’t ask him if he has a favorite song.
“Which one of your children do you like the best?” he replies. “Music comes from the same source. It’s all the same thing.”
Not that he’s above bragging. “People come to see us 50 times. Well, that’s not just going to see a concert — that’s some other mess going on. This music changes you,” he says. “These people are not being satisfied elsewhere by musicians, you feel what I’m saying? It’s no disrespect to anyone else, because we’re not checking for them. But we don’t lip synch. We ain’t got time for it.”
There is nothing wrong with having an iPhone, Prince. And why oh WHY do celebs/rockstars/actors get mad when asked questions?! Like, it’s an interview dude. That is what happens. Geez. Anyway, should be an interesting issue to read. As for me, I’m going to listen to ‘When Doves Cry’ on repeat.
