17 Oct The Prince Of Prop?
I just got this in from a no-name reporter regarding’s Prince TV Appearance from earlier this week and wanted to share:
STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE: THE STOOL PRINCE WAS USIN ON THE LE GRAND JOURNAL WAS A PROP, NOT A CRUTCH. LOL THE SONG WAS CALLED DANCE 4 ME, NOT WATCH ME DANCE 4 U. HE WAS GONNA USE A LAZY BOY OR CHAISE LOUNGE BUT THERE WASN’T TIME OR SPACE.
AFTER VIEWING THE RUN THRU, IT WAS DECIDED THAT THE STOOL LOOKED FLY SO IT WAS KEPT IT IN THE SHOW. BESIDES, ULTRABUSY LEAD SINGERS R ALL OVER TV THESE DAYS AND DUDE JUST WANTED 2 PLAY THE GUITAR AND LET THE AUDIENCE’S EYES FOCUS ON THE DANCERS WHO DID AN XCELLENT JOB DANCING 4 EVERYONE. LOL BTW…. DID ANYONE C THE LONG VERSION OF KISS FROM THE SATURDAY NIGHT GRAND PALAIS CONCERT AND CARE 2 COMMENT?”
Thanks for sharing. You know, I always thought if Prince made a video for “Dance 4 Me”, he should be sitting down watching people dance 4 him, where you just see his sunglasses or mouth or sometimes just his heel, so you know it’s him and you get to see glimpses of him but the people dancing for him don’t. Just my idea.
As for that long version of “Kiss”, ahem, anyone have video out there we could share? You know you gotta love the french “Kiss” so don’t front.-Dr.FB

The fact that he felt it necessary to issue this “release” about why he was sitting down should be enough indication that he is hypersensitive about his stage appearance vis a vis his movement these days.
Whether it’s a hip problem or not, dude is 50 years old… He may not believe in time, but his body does! It’s okay if he doesn’t prance around like he used to… he’s still quite capable of delivering showstopping performances.

@Audio Verite – no flames here – I quite agree with you. I don’t feel Prince has the religion thing worked out for himself yet. Finding The Truth, wherever you seek it, is about internal reconciliation (amongst other things) and I still feel he struggles in that area.
@Ian – please take your negativity to prince.org where it belongs. The Doctor’s site is a happy place so let’s keep it that way!

Look I have been listening to prince since I was 7 and watching him operate. His non-musical activities are nowhere near as mysterious as his artistic output. His PR is very bad, the fact is for years Prince has not moved the same and yes there was rumors about him needing surgery for his hip, ok, hes human and did splits, all forgiven, lil guy, no worry. Even Wendy mentioned in a interview she wished he was ok and was in a lot of pain. What he is hiding is the fact he needs surgery and no amount of praying can fix it. He belongs to a church/cult/Followers of others ideas on life and they tell him god doesn’t want him to have anything to do with blood, hence he can not get the surgery, it’s rather sad, in fact it’s depressing. I wish he thought for himself and thought god worked through people like Doctors so he could get help. But he’s atoning for his past sins hardcore(neglecting vast amounts of his past work due 2 church rules I would guess)
If this was his idea I could live with it, but he’s letting others think for him and tell him what god wants, which makes him a follower of man, dead men, not even his god. It’s sad I can dance to his music minus painkillers, but he can’t. He might feel like leader by teaching Bria like he was taught, but he’s walking in others shoes and she’s just out for him like everyone else.
I hope this JW thing passes and he learns to think for himself and see the world and his life in a new light, with a brand new hip so he can dance. Doesn’t God want us all too dance? Sad. Lost Michael to crazy thinking and drugs, Madonna is also in a cult, it’s only a matter of time. I got mine and you got yours to live though, I’ll be on the dance floor, maybe he will meet us there when he sees his own light.
I’ve been keeping this inside for so long, I will not be in a flame war, nor will I reply again, I just hope he or someone else close to him helps him, enough YES men, someone say NO and talk to him a a person, not a Prince.

LOL, Kiss from Sunday night in the Grand Palais, Prince danced 4 ME, no sight of a stool/chaise lounge in sight. He was magnificent!
U KNOWHO SHE ISPosted at 15:23h, 17 October
Great Show… Body is the Temple, Dancing is the One True Worship !

Thanks 4 the update Dr..prop or not..the Man still can rock my world!!!
Miss FortunePosted at 15:06h, 17 October
Actually, it would be more sexy with a video of a girl dancing for him on a piano, while he’s playing and she’s stripping..;)
GeorgiePosted at 14:59h, 17 October
I love your idea for a video!
I realised the stool was a prop, but only AFTER the performance when he managed without but it bothered me though throughout as I thought his legs/back/bones were giving him jip afterall the little fella had a busy week.
The chaise lounge would have worked much better, what a lovely idea!
I’m not complaining though, fantastic treat, he looked beautiful
Miss FortunePosted at 14:36h, 17 October
Well, though Prince was looking in the mirror while writing “Dance 4 Me”, it would have been nice to see him dance himself – in front of a mirror:)
The dancers did great! It’s nice of Prince to “step back” and let the others shine:)
Now I just want one more KISS!

” DID ANYONE C THE LONG VERSION OF KISS FROM THE SATURDAY NIGHT GRAND PALAIS CONCERT AND CARE 2 COMMENT?”
Ehm… Maybe you can leak that video too, Prince? You know the channels …
( off-topic: Doc, you’re now my favorite entertainment site. Roger Friedman is on my shit-list since he wrote this Roman Polanski apologizing crap)
justmemuchlovePosted at 13:14h, 17 October
Not a bad idea doc 😉
EstherPosted at 13:13h, 17 October
Could it be that this no-name reporter is Prince himself? He writes in CAPITALS and uses a similar syntax. Prince, you don’t have to excuse yourself for sitting while playing by “leaking” this whole background story.
And I can make you a dance 4 me video. All you gotta say is please.
