On Tavis he talks about teasing and hard times being Lil Purpa:
"The first thing I did is," Prince tells PBS' Tavis Smiley in a new interview. "I went into [my]self and I taught myself music. My father left his piano at the house when he left and I wasn't allowed to play it when he was there because I wasn't as good as him so when he left I was determined to get as good as him."
"I taught myself how to play music and I just stuck with it and I did it all the time and sooner or later people in the neighborhood heard about me and they started to talk about me and it wasn't in the teasing fashion, it was more like, 'Wow look what he can do...' Once I got that support from people...I believed I could do anything," he reveals.

"Also on board are 'testimonials' from the likes of Naomi Campbell, Elton John, P Diddy, and Prince fans..."
Okay, so while assembling this opus, someone stopped and said,
"Wait a minute. This is missing something."
And then they all said at the same time, "commentary from P Diddy."

I found this:
"We've had to get on a soapbox every time a door gets opened and convince the world that we're viable. We've been composing for film and TV for almost 20 years now, and we just in the past maybe 10 years have gotten away from only being called to do black movies." --WENDY aka Grand Wizard of the Racist Ingrate Airhead Association
Okay, so I really don't care about W & L because they were basically crossover props, but I love them for referring to him as a "fancy lesbian" in some interview.
I guess he's making sure he does the show to try and clean up Soupgate. I really don't think the three people tuning in bother with his music.
He needs to give Oprah a call.
No. Sorry media. That little record was just Purpa being cute and doing something for someone who obviously appreciates his work, which is awesome. Besides even if he was feeling her like that, he knows the truth.
He could never take the place of Penelope Cruz. LOL Then again Prince is a rather attractive hispanic woman.
The project was better for this though. Instead of writing crap for that Bria character he should have made more "ooh baby baby please" songs about Selma.
