So Prince was in New York City to give Patti Labelle an award and it was surprise to Patti as it was kept very much on the hush hush. It seems a lot of people did not know as many celebs were speechless such as MC of the night Steve Harvey.

We learned that the night before, Prince stopped by the West Side Story After Party for the Tony's to visit with Lori Werner aka Lori Elle aka Diamond, who used to dance with Prince and is also a choreographer for West Side Story.  Karen Olivo along with other West Side Story cast members were in attendance while Prince was there.

Prince did promise to attend a West Side Story performance sometime in the future but not certain when. I wonder what outfit he would break out for that?

P.S.  Perez, Prince does not have two messed up hips. Perhaps you should do your homework before lifting a story from another site anyway.- Dr.FB

  1. Whatever the deal is with Prince and his hips, I hope he is taking care of himself. God would want that for him. It’s cool that Prince is here in NYC and how wild is it that he visitied “Diamond” from the Diamonds and Pearls era? I hope P stays here for a little while. Just too bad that it’s raining, then again he might have brought that with him. You know, Purple Rain. lol Corny I know lol.


  3. Apology accepted, it’s all good. I can definitely understand where you’re coming from as you must be dealing with lots of nutters on here. I wasn’t trying to stir things up or be negative – I just felt the need to express my concerns publicly.

  4. ^Stay under this name is all I am asking. Deleted your other posts under other names and kept these. Dig.

    As for digital, if I did make a mistake, I apologize. You have to understand where I am coming from and these Prince comments are too much sometimes. It shows he has a pretty wide fanbase but I would expect this sort of stuff more on Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus threads instead of here where most are slightly older. I said slightly. Watch out now! 🙂

  5. BTW I have been here under this name for quite some time…dig.

  6. Negativity is an easy comment on things one doesn’t want to see…

    The hip thing has been reported many times over the past 4 – 5 years…

    And people from the inner circle have confirmed it.

    I can understand being afraid of such a move, very well. But poppin’ pills is not the game…after you gave up on cocaine…

    Religion is keeping him away from it, of course there is one method without blood, but you need it for emergency reasons…so he would rather die than be save?

    Poppin’ pills is not the game…

  7. Yeah, people should be banned based on mere assumptions and because they don’t belong to the usual circle of posters. WTF?!

    “Lame and tired” is an attack and not an observation, regardless what interpretation you’re trying to offer.

    I mean, what’s happening here? I’m expressing genuine concern about the health of my favorite musician. Fame?! Mr. Negative? Sorry, I have no clue what you’re going on about.

    And for the last time – I have no multiple identities on here, this is a ridiculous assumption which is plain WRONG.

  8. Can someone please school people that there are 2 different types of hip replacement surgeries; 1 with a transfusion and 1 without a transfusion.

    So religion should not even come up to play in all of this. Very uneducated.

  9. I love how Drfunkenberry writes an entire piece on something and someone focuses on the last sentence.

    “Here is my chance! Here is my 15 minutes of fame because what I say is important and will make a difference. Screw being positive! I can make a difference by being Mr. Negative”

    Lame and tired. Not an attack, just an observation.

    And he is right, it is mighty fishy after he states the multiple identity thing in the same post, you pop up. Man, if this was my blog, I would ban both of you. You aren’t the usual people who comment anyway. lol

  10. Say what you will, Prince needs surgery, end of story.

    The painkillers just killed somone accidently…I hope our man stays out of the grey and decides that walking is better that a wheelchair…and you need blood for that kind of surgery or you might die for your religion…

  11. Ok, let me reassure you I am not that other German person posting here, nor do I know that other person. Is he/she from Hamburg, Germany, too? That, of course, would be quite a coincidence. Please take my word for it.

  12. Oh, and such a carefully worded reply as “he doesn’t have two messed up hips” isn’t actually debunking the story in my eyes. Why don’t you come forward and say “P doesn’t have any problems with his hips”? Back when those rumors first surfaced I chose to believe the people who were denying them….but these days I’m not so sure at all anymore. In my eyes, replying “he doesn’t have two messed up hips” instead of “none of his hips are messed up” adds to the credibility of the statement you’re trying to “debunk”.

  13. You have to understand it is VERY fishy when you just appear after I went after someone from Germany and this is your “first time” posting. Let me call/email my friend who lives about 6 hours away and have them say something for me under a different name. Keep it under the same name and it flies. Make up different identities, not going to fly.

    I was born at night but not last night.

    It is not censorship. As I said before, say whatever you want but keep it under one name. Wether you are at home or at work or elsewhere. One simple request I have asked before is don’t pretend to be more than 1 person. I let it slide the last time but not anymore. It is lame and childish.

    I stand by what I wrote. No one made this public but me. This is my blog/site.

    I am done. Not going to reply anymore because it is a game that I win by walking away.

  14. Ummm – was the “stay under one name” directed at me? I guess so, since my posting was removed. I assume the other posting in question was originating from Germany, too, otherwise you wouldn’t have made this disrespecting comment. Well, guess what, it looks like there’s more than one person in Germany with an internet connection who’s worried about Prince’s health. The comment that I made and that you deleted was my first contribution to this site. I have better things to do than double-posting.

    However, I don’t like being censored (censorship doesn’t fly here in Germany, y’know), especially for the wrong reasons (I for one, don’t give a crap about Eminem and what he sells), so I’ll say it again:

    Prince, sort your stuff out. This is really worrying. People in your camp are relocating this debate into the public. This looks like a desperate attempt to make you realize the urgency of the matter. Of course I could be totally wrong, but to me this looks more and more unlikely.

  15. “… It seems a lot of people did not know as many celebs were speechless such as MC of the night Steve Harvey….”
    🙂 Nuff said.. Thank you so much for the info Doc.. and well.. thank you.
    Much love

  16. 2nd and final warning. Comment has been deleted. Stay under one name is all I ask. Say whatever you want but keep it under 1 name. Don’t act like it is more than 1 person saying something when it is the same reteric.

    Me bringing up something that was put up on another person’s site is not trying to bring up a “debate” of the issue. It’s simply trying to debunk their story that was lifted from another site.

    Read what I said carefully. I stand by it.

  17. Man, I was wondering when these windbags were going to come back. Love how they only post negative comments. The guy can’t get played on radio. What more do you want out of him? Wait..don’t even answer that.

    Guess he has needed a new hip since like 92 or something because since then he hasn’t promoted projects normally. 4 times is a lot considering previous performances and output.

    The source? Yea, of nothing.

  18. Let’s see Eminem when he is 51 sell 300K. Stay under one name and stop trying to make it look like it is more than 1 person saying this crap. It may fly in Germany but it is NOT gonna fly here. No one is trying to fool you. You can discuss what you want but keep it under one name.

  19. Prince is addicted to painkillers and has to get a hip replacement, don’t try to fool us…else he would promote his stuff properly…
    Lotusfailure wouldn’t have happened if he would just do what needs to be done for a triple album release, four times on TV ain’t enough…and don’t tell me that 300k for 10$ is a great achievement…look at EMINEM…that is a success…

  20. Why do peeps always want Prince to have bad hips all the time? No one can move like he do in concert and have bad hips. Prince is always full of surprises. I like how peeps are always in awe of him. Even the celebrities.

  21. Prince, where’ s the party at?

  22. U tell perez dr funk we know u always have the first scoop on prince

  23. Ah, I like the old connection to “Diamond”, that’s cool. Thanks for the backstory Dr. F!
