  1. The only Thing we need from Prince is the Reissue of his back Warner Brother CATALOGUE Remastered in Deluxe Format with Demos/outtakes…So Prince Stop Making sites with nothing to offer / and Stop Making Poor Albums…………we need to see your past Works from WB Era treated with QUALITY & RESPECT….SO PRINCE& WB ….Did u hear us….Stop MAKING WAR….MAKE PEACE!!

    THANX

  2. its probably gonna be a interview and maybe address his financial problems, his personal life, lotusflow3r website, discuss purple&gold/cause&effect and some new jams and most of all hopefully announce a tour

  3. ^lmao

  4. Awesome news Doc!!!! Ebony magazine and Prince sounds like a very interesting read for people of color like myself and everyone who is a music lover. I look forward to reading what he has cookin for 2010. Im sure he will have great things to say about Bria as well. All love from this end and positive vibes! I love you Prince!!!!

  5. Thanks Doc. Prince is full of surprises. Prince most likely will discuss God and Music. It will be a surprise if he talks about his move back to Minneapolis…the ultimate surprise if he gives a hint of his and Bria’s relationship. I wish people would just stop hating on Bria. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. They are a great couple!

  6. I loveeee surprises! :D
    Can’t wait…Thanx 4 the news

  7. i read somewhere that he was considering another film project. according to the report, it suggested….drum roll please……..Purple Rain 2. however its common knoweldge that Graffiti Bridge was PR2 and as we all know, was a huge embarrassment.

    my money is on a tour and a new cd……i like getting new music from him, the only thing is it fades to black, by my 3rd listen. He seriously needs to hook up with the Revolution or at least the girls Wendy & Lisa…..

  8. Now …What would Surprise?

  9. Hey while hes at it, tell him to make that ugly Bria chick stay off the internet. She’s garbage. All of her propaganda for attention and “ooh look at me” is a purple crying shame to Prince royalty. No one should be so desperate while still be connected to Prince. Just sayin’

    Something tells me her online squad and aliases will have a say to this, (all while posing as a fan of course), in 5…4….3…2…)

    LMAO

  10. It’s what the world needs I guess.. You only know what you know
    In perfect order and on The way to enlightment.
    Prince I Love You

  11. thanks doc ….can’t wait…:)

  12. Thanks for the info Doc, I look forward to reading up on my man Xtra P …

  13. Yes, he can do anything. Anything HE wants. People, don’t expect him to do what YOU want. He never likes to do what’s expected anyway. Just accept it and enjoy The Ride!
    Whatever it is, I’m excited!!

  14. @maddladd

    Your username suits you well.

    What absolute disrespect.

    You got your attention.

    Anyway, very excited! Can’t wait to hear what possibilities are next. The Lotus set will be tough to top but, it’s Prince….you do know he can do anything right?

  15. Maybe he could throw in a cover-mounted CD, like he did with Planet Earth in the UK Daily Mail, and like he planned to do back in 1994 with The Undertaker in Guitar World magazine.

  16. The Truth said: “Great news Dr. Funny though, seems that you haven’t heard about all the other prince news thats going on e.g. his website re-charging people for subscriptions they didnt want… or perhaps the one about him getting sued for a few mil for pulling out of a concert ten days before, leaving many people out of pocket in the process (hotels travel expenses). Oh, and he didnt appologies for any of this. But hey.. he is gonna be in a magazine in a few months!”

    Yeah! That!

  17. problem is, if they interview him, he will unleash a bunch of ideas, and only a few of them will actually pan out. of course there’s probably talk about a new album, that when it’s released will be sub-par at best. a new tour is probably in the works(to pay off all of his reported overdues) and several other contradictions will be said that is the typical Prince interview. back in the day i couldn’t wait for new Prince material, and would have purchased 3 or 4 albums a year .. but now, i just cringe at the thought of new albums cuz other than a couple good songs. there’s more filler than anything.. i e Lotus/mpls, Planet Earth, 3121. Musicology was the last solid album from him, Rainbow Children was the last Great album from him. Emancipation was the last Classic album from him.

    but hey, he could surpise us all and say he’s no longer conforming to the JW religion, he’s reuniting with the original Revolution and he’s going to do a world tour, put out a new Prince and the Revolution album out, and that Larry Graham is no longer the man behind Prince’s curtain.

    just my 2cents

  18. GR8 thanx 4 the news Doc Funk

  19. Thank you for letting us know :)

  20.

  21. Maybe another website since Lotusflower was so successful???

  22. Prelude to Reunion Tour!(wishful thinking)Hey!Can’t blame a girl for trying!I have been campaigining for 2 yrs at least now!lol I’m not so big on surpises…makes me nervous.lol Thanks for sharing. :)

  23. Thanks for the news doc

  24. Pretty cool. Not sure what he has to do an interview about, but hopefully he does one and doesn’t just pose for pictures.
