As some of you may be seeing lately, Purple Rain has been trending on Twitter frequently. Although it is Prince's song, it has been trending because of Justin Bieber for some reason. The Biebs is a HUGE fan of the song "Purple Rain" and although he does not thank him at award shows, Justin hopes to have the longevity that Prince has had in the music industry.
So, why is it trending for Bieber? Justin's fans, you know, the ones with Bieber fever, find interesting ways for Justin to trend on Twitter after Twitter banned Justin Bieber's name from being a trending topic. Justin's favorite color is purple, like Prince. Also, at Justin's shows, during sound check, a majority of the time, the band plays "Purple Rain" for Justin.
We all know that Prince has done more for "The Color Purple" since Alice Walker and we know his fans can't be outraged over a teenager obsessing over Prince and then his fans obsessing back over him, right? I think it's quite cool that his music is still touching base with teens like it did with me.
Maybe, just maybe, if Prince himself wants to trend on Twitter, maybe, just maybe, he should join Twitter and get an official Twitter account. Ahem. That would be like "A 2 piece with a biscuit" Prince.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Justin, whatever you do, do NOT cover "Purple Rain"!!!
