questionable allegiances – an open letter

Prince, oh, Prince. We’re worried.

We love you. Really, we do – despite your creepily eerily intriguingly porcelain skin and heels higher than anything I can wear. You’re a genius, not one for the excessive, whoring use of the spotlight and brilliant at emanating without oozing.

Which brings up the question: why, oh, why did you feel it necessary, or even reasonable, to appear on American Idol last night?? Were all proceeds from you appearance donated to a worthwhile charity that Ryan forgot to mention? Does Simon [either Cowell or Fuller] own your soul?

I was not even going to watch the first hour and 55 minutes of the two hour finale – until I read on another blog from an earlier timezone that you were on the show: on and performing. And, this, after Mr.Q and I were in Starbucks last weekend, in the presence of your new album, discussing your longevity, talent and how you would be the last person to appear as a guest on the Idol “I have a new album and love these kids” train. Oh, how we laughed at the thought…

I confess that we are now rather befuddled and concerned. Do you need to talk? We’re here for you, if you do. We’re sure there were good reasons; there must have been good reasons.

Please tell us there were good reasons.

  1. I’m with you on this one. I absolutely worship Prince. How could he do this? How could he change his name to a symbol for several years to protest his being tied to an unreasonable recording contract, yet pimp himself on American Idol? It just doesn’t make sense.

  2. Yeah, I didn’t see him, but from what you are telling me it must have been bad?

    I saw him on SNL and fell in love with his music all over again. Oh Purple Rain and Controversy from the 80’s. That was my ‘make out’ music LOL

  3. It wasn’t bad at all – quite well done, really. It was just so … bizarre. Mr.Q, who doesn’t even like to be in the same room as Idol, made sure to watch it to believe it.

    just bizarre.

  4. Surreal kinda, wasn’t it??

    Even though he is ultra WEIRD, he is just so freakin’ cool.

    Thanks for the link. 🙂

  5. Prince is a strange dessicated little man still making the same records he did twenty years ago when people still gave a sh*t.

    He blew his career years ago through his ego and pretension – who cares now?
