BIOGRAPHY:

Prince Rogers Nelson, known by the mononym Prince, was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor.


TRIVIA:
  • 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.
  • A very short man, he often has to wear large shoes on stage so he is not dwarfed by some female singers.
  • In May 2000 Prince dropped the symbol O(+> he adopted as a name. He had used the symbol because he considered his record contract with Warner Bros. Records oppressive, which ended in 2000.
  • Was to duet with 'Michael Jackson (I)' (qv) on his album "Bad", but could not decide on the words to the song.
  • During the filming of _Purple Rain (1984)_ (qv), he was told one day by director 'Albert Magnoli' (qv) that the film needed a montage song that dealt heavily on emotions. Prince responded with two songs the very next morning, written, produced and recorded. One of the songs was the smash hit "When Doves Cry".
  • Known for his colorful outfits and explicitly flaunting and expressing his strong sexuality during his performances, despite being a devout Christian.
  • Played the song "1999" for the last time at a New Year's Eve party in 1999, then announced he was retiring the song.
  • He joins 'Sylvester Stallone' (qv), 'Roberto Benigni' (qv), 'Kevin Costner' (qv), 'William Shatner' (qv) and 'Tom Green (III)' (qv) as being the only actors to direct themselves in performances that would win them a Razzie Award for Worst Actor.
