PRINCE NEW YORKER ARTICLE FULL OF MISQUOTES!!!!

PRINCE NEW YORKER ARTICLE FULL OF MISQUOTES!!!!

We were just sent this:

Prince did an interview with the New Yorker recently and it is CHOCK full of misquotes!!

The reporter was not allowed to use a tape recorder, and so paraphrased nearly everything.

We are told the parts about religion are especially misquoted.

Prince never said “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever and he just cleared it it out. He was like ‘enough'”. Those are the WRITERS words, not Prince’s.

Next time, there will be a tape recorder. (Eye roll)

We want to thank Prince’s people for clearing that up.-Dr.FB

    The purpose of the article Mr Boycott is for him to deliberately piss you off–> I see he succeeded 😉

    my how u stand corrected i’ve been down with Price since 83, the age of 10, i’ve supported him, the revolution, the paisely park records even the whack souinds of good question and 3 o clock, traveled at time state to see him perform, bought bootlegs etc, so i’m not a new comer..

    my money has value and if some of you would get your head out your ass you would see how much he doesnt care about you, just your dollar, he doesn’t care to put out quality music and promote it, he doesn’t care to play concerts for you unless you spend crazy money to get in or if your a celebrity.. so why should i care, one less satisfied fan will lead to many unsatisfied fans, my eyes have been opened, my ears have heard his truth.. and i no longer wish to contribute to his success or any other artist who dont’ respect their fans..

    can you tell me what was the purpose pf the article.. did he even talk about music, or promote his book? i like it better when Prince talked thru his music, at least there was room for interpretation…

    Boycott prince music? that’s the dumbest thing I have ever heard… I tell you what boycottprince, why don’t you and you only boycott his music that way it will be one less sale on Itunes that Prince himself is the least worried about and one less idiot the true fans have to deal with when he’s performing a concert that we’ve paid our good MONEY to see!!!
    boycottprince whose your favorite artist??? hmmm let me see, David Archuleta? I know Britney Spears???? !!!!!!!

    Makes sense to me. The whole article seemed fishy from the jump. Thanks for clearing things up.

    This is soooo not Prince’s site. Wow.

    Celeb news and gossip. Just because we cover him does not mean this is his site.

    Its my site for celeb news and gossip. Man, some people.

    Thank you for posting this clarification Doc.

    It would be frustrating to be misquoted, as Prince was in this article.

    Knowing how Prince has been misquoted in the past, I’m taking this “interview” with a huge grain of salt!

    Prince is a complete package, although the music is MY main concern…there is more 2 him than just his music…

    if it was just music then Prince “misquotes” wouldn’t be all over the news!!!

    see if Prince was making good music instead of trying to make a good conversation this misquote would have never happened!

    An article full of jibberish, nothing mentioned about music?? what’s was the purpose for the interview??

    Defense from what?

    Boycottprince … it ain’t all that … relax … it’s JUST music … I’d hope no one lives their life by P’s lyrics. Speaking as the resident Sunni Muslim and P Fam/Fan …

    boycottprince … Come on!!! So you didn’t like what you surmised from the article ….leave off raking over old coals when some one has no way of defending themselves.

    well tell me if this Dr. Funkenberry is this also a misquote from Prince’s ex Paisley park artist Jill Jones –

    JILL : No. I have not had any contact with Prince since 1992. I thought after my mother died in 1995 or even after my uncle died in 1997 (he was his hairdresser), he’d have sent condolences, but he never did. So I certainly was not going to expect to be invited to sing on his new master of 1999. (:

    lol – i have no doubt that Prince said and meant everything in the New Yorker.. he could careless about his fans and since the revolution his music has been lifeless like his this interview!

    Read both sides before you judge.

    The article does not seem well written and I am taking Prince’s word on this one.
