Weird Al’s ‘Mandatory’ Interview: ‘Word Crimes,’ the ‘Tacky’ Video & Prince, Who Still Won’t Say Yes to a Parody
The longtime parody artist talks his latest targets — and how Prince still won’t give him permission.
Yesterday, Prince tweeted out a link to a 36-second snippet of the song, “This Could Be Us,” which was inspired by a meme of him from Purple Rain where he’s seen riding on a motorcycle with Apollonia.
Prince has been keeping himself busy out there in Paisley Park.
He also has some not so nice things to say about record label heads. Curse-free of course.
The stripped down track begins with delicate strokes of the keyboard before Prince’s striking falsetto enters. “This could be the saddest story ever been told,” he sings.
The ‘Purple Rain’ reissue will be digitally re-mastered for the first time.
Seems that duet between Prince and Zooey Deschanel wasn’t all for the cameras.
In a rare late-night TV interview and performance, Prince instructed the crowd to put down their phone and get the party on.
Prince promised it would be a performance Arsenio would never forget. “Just incase you haven’t heard,” Prince wrote. “I’ve been practicing and I’ve gotten pretty good now.”
Billy Joel rules New York. Prince has got a lock on Minnesota. But who takes hold of Washington? Hint, it’s someone who’s not nearly as cool as Nirvana.
Prince has had as many hairstyles as he’s had studio albums. See them all in this highly entertaining collection of the Purple One’s always-evolving look.
He also talked about why fans shouldn’t hold their breath for any big celebrations around the upcoming 30th anniversary of the release of his landmark 1984 album, ‘Purple Rain.’
There are tales of Prince parties in which he orders flapjacks for everyone just before dawn. Sometimes the story’s fake, and sometimes the story’s real. So when it’s 4:30 a.m. and Prince is dancing about eight feet away from you, there’s always a chance that this isn’t surreal enough.
