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

  • One of the very few musicians who writes, produces and composes all his music himself. On most of his albums, he plays all the instruments himself, except for brass instruments, which he does not play, though he does have a backing band for concerts. His songwriting skills have provided hits for others such as 'Chaka Khan (I)' (qv), 'Sinéad O'Connor' (qv) and 'Jordan Knight' (qv).
  • 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.
  • Ranked #5 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists.
  • Performed a composition written by his father, 'John L. Nelson' (qv), in the music of _Purple Rain (1984)_ (qv); this music was also part a song from the _Purple Rain (1984)_ (qv) soundtrack, "Computer Blue".
  • The symbol he used as his name was also the name of his last Warner Bros. album as Prince, which was released just a few months before his name change. He recorded as Prince since then on his independently distributed, self-released albums and those licensed to Arista/BMG Records and Columbia/SME Records.
  • Son of jazz pianist 'John L. Nelson' (qv).
  • Wrote a song for his friend the actress Jackie Swanson entitled Palomino Pleasure Ride.
  • 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".
