Scene Five: My Idol My GOD My Best Friend...PRINCE

Born Prince Roger Nelson is a legend an ICON, He performs simply as Prince, but has also been known by various other names, among them an unpronounceable symbol, leading fans and critics to dub him The Artist Formerly Known As Prince or simply The Artist. Prince is a prolific artist, having released several hundred songs both under his own name and with other artists. He has won six Grammy Awards and and Academy Awards, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. In 2004, he was named as the top male pop artist of the past 25 years by ARC Rock on the Net, and Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Prince #28 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. From his early material, rooted in R&B, soul and funk, Prince has expanded his musical palette throughout his career, absorbing many other genres including pop, rock, jazz, new wave, psychedelia and hip hop. Some of his primary influences include Sly Stone, Curtis Mayfield, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, James Brown and Carlos Santana. The distinctive characteristics of the early-to-mid 1980s work, such as sparse and industrial-sounding drum machine arrangements and the use of synthesizer riffs to serve the role traditionally occupied by horn riffs in earlier R&B, funk and soul music—was called the "Minneapolis sound" and has proved very influential.


Prince still tours and has already left his mark on the industry and in my heart and soul most recently tha music industry has been channeling his music such Artist Justin Timberlake, Ciara, Ne-Yo, Donnie Klang, Lloyd, The Dream and many more and can u blame em hes so influential the man is known for his music as well as being a ladies man. I will jus say Vanity (also known as Denise Matthews), Madonna, Anna Fantastic, Carmen Electra, Jill Jones, Apollonia Kotero, Kim Basinger, Sheena Easton, Robin Arcuri, Troy Beyer, Susanna Hoffs and Nona Gaye have been romatically linked to tha Icon n GOD in my eyes. You know how i long i been on ya Prince lol assless pants and all
