BIOGRAPHY:




TRIVIA:
  • Performed at the Super Bowl XLI halftime show in Miami, Florida, to a worldwide television audience of 140 million viewers. (4 February 2007).
  • Arrived an hour late to the 2007 Golden Globe Awards due to traffic and missed accepting the Golden Globe for Best Song for movie "Happy Feet". 'Justin Timberlake' (qv) accepted the award for him after an awkward silence waiting for Prince to come on stage. He did so in an amusing fashion by crouching down to a shorter height and raising his voice to accept the award for Prince. Hugh Grant later announced Prince had finally arrived after being stuck in gridlock traffic, and gave Prince an opportunity to stand and receive applause for his win.
  • One of very few artists who has denied ''Weird Al' Yankovic' (qv) permission to parody any of his songs. After years of asking, ''Weird Al' Yankovic' obtained video parody permission, and the video for _UHF (1989)_ (qv) includes a sequence that spoofs the bathtub intro for Prince's video of "When Doves Cry".
  • The symbol to which Prince changed his name (which is best rendered as ether O{+> or O(+> in normal ASCII characters) originated in and was borrowed by Prince from ancient Europe.
  • He was voted the 28th greatest Rock & Roll Artist of all time by "Rolling Stone" magazine.
  • His 1984 album "Purple Rain" sold 13 million copies in the United States.
  • Started the careers of 'Vanity (I)' (qv) and 'Carmen Electra' (qv) amongst others.
  • In his _An Evening with Kevin Smith (2002) (V)_ (qv) film, director 'Kevin Smith (I)' (qv) says that he learned during shooting of a documentary for Prince that he has made about 50 fully produced music videos for songs that were never released in any kind of form.
