VH-1 Soul is devoting the entire weekend to the Purple One. Check it out - if you're lucky, it'll be the 1980s when you tune in. ;-)

Saw this mentioned in today's Louisville Courier-Journal:

"Prince's performance at Coachella has been getting buzz for weeks. Lil' dude must have killed it. Of course, he kinda had to after a payday rumored to be nearly $5 million, which isn't bad for a couple of hours work.

One of the highlights was apparently a cover of Radiohead's "Creep," fan footage of which was readily available on YouTube until Prince had it blocked. It was a typically strange move for Prince seeing as how YouTube clips are generally only blocked by the people who own the material's copyright.

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.
