Purpa edits his childhood story yet again

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.




About that Opus

I missed this tidbit:

"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 don't get it

Yeah, so big Mike is one of those so-called fans that are determined for whatever reason to announce the end of Purpa.

Everything isn't for everybody blahblahblah, but what's with the last-days chorus?  Gat damn.


Why did I read that interview

Against my sense and judgement I decided to read the W&L interview with the "fancy lesbian" comment.

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

LuLz @Wendy and Lisa

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. 


Purpa does Ellen

I'll pass on that.

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.

Okay, all jokes aside

This motherfucker really does look like Rihanna.

Whenever I see this pic I have to look real hard to make sure it's not him.

And she's not the only chick he could use to change his identity if he ever wanted to...kinda weirds me out


Lemme get this straight

Purpa is trying to sell folk his opus(Sears glamour shots and bootlegs you can find in about ten seconds online)for


No words.


Purpa wants to show Selma his dynamite

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.


Prince to do Tavis later this month


I'm kidding.  I'm sure it will be a cute little half hour of Tavis spit-shining P, and P offering up his latest JW-inspired rant.  If we're lucky there'll be a decent performance thrown in.
