Why are all these ytees giving the tribute???
the disrespect and blatant regard for our culture and our cultural icons continues.. even in their death. Sad.
This is complete crap!! I would love to protest and egg her on stage. Can we get some real talent to honor the most talented musician ever??
I can't even deal right now I'm so livid!!
1:45 it doesn't say all of that, it lists who is ALSO performing that night. Read.
@2:22But still where are the black performers??? Are there no current black artists out?
People may not like to hear it, but they should have asked Beyoncé, at least she has performed with him and he seemed to like her. The could have also asked Fantasia, and any number of other recording artists who were influenced by his music. Brittany Spears, Justin Beiber, and the Go-Gos (who haven't been relevant for over a decade) make no sense. Pink is the only one I can see since she mixes rock, R&B, and pop in her music. Is Shelia E not available? And they need someone who is a guitarist. I don't think it's an issue of the people being white, I think it's an issue of them not using good judgment and common sense when picking this group.
WTF? I guess we'll have to wait for he BET tribute -- which won't be much better but will at least yield some Black singers. SMH.... I do not want see Madonna doing no shit with horns during the Prince tribute!
Why Madonna???? Why not a D'Angelo or at least, a musician as in instrumentalist. I'd rather see Janelle Monae and her band as opposed to Madonna and i like her just a bad choice
we need to stop blaming white people when we dont do stuff for ourselves. whats BET and all these black concert promoters at? what are they planning?
Soooo her high priestess kabbalah witch ass will be doing a Satanic Ritual Tribute? Guess I can't say I didn't see that one coming.
Yes 3:02pm; This officially shows us what really happened. The fact that they say they can't find a will; That the so-called "specialist" called in the death rather than his staff they they back-tracked and said the "specialist" didn't see him at all; Plus getting his Masters/reaching a mutual agreement with Warner Bros where they'd have to PAY HIM for use of certain materials tells us ALL what time it is. And we ALL know what Kabbalah really is and Madonna's history and pedigree. They really think people are stupid.
Um, and let's not forget that he couldn't stand Madonna...
SLAP IN HIS FACE, that no talent trick!
TWEET, EMAIL and reach out to let them know TRUE PRINCE fans KNOW he deserves better! I already did ready to do a petition to stop this travesty!
3:15 I"d sign the petition
@2:44 "I do not want to see to see Madonna doin no shit with horns during the Prince tribute"......I died. Do you hear me? Fucking dead LMAO
So The Time, Jimmy & Terry, Mint Condition, Sheila E. none of these people are available? This is utter and compete bullshit!
I wonder if she will perform their duet, "Love Song"?
Madonna should just sing Love Song. The duet song she did with Prince with Lenny Kravitz or Terence Trent D'arby or even Miguel.
R in NYC says:Ugggh.....Madonna is so pastey white and nasty looking now. All that money can't save her face.
What type of fuckery...smh. I could have sworn he didn't even like Madonna after the eighties. What a crock smh.
So hopefully BET will get Janelle Monae to do an actual tribute to Prince instead of this dumb shit...
@2:11 I totally agree with you - the most honored by "Madonna", the flash in the pan disgusting entertainer (that is what she is AN ENTERTAINER, NOT A MUSICIAN).
Pleaee insert: the most talented musician in decades is being honored by
Man Prince is gonna spit fire from his ashes if he knew Madonna satanic ass was doing his tribute. But I'll take Madonna over Beyonce any damn day...
Why can't they play his hits along with a hologram? No one but Aretha Franklin and Angelo can sing his songs. Also I believe Prince was hurt by a divorce and was used by the ex who claimed she didn't want the spotlight but 5 years later was remarried to a popular r&b singer...??
Race should have nothing to do with this...they're all in the same profession. I think that list is according to who's "hot" right now. Honestly, all the GREAT talent that could tribute Prince are gone....I honestly, wouldn't mind Stevie Wonder doing it tho
Prince had spoken out against the way Billboard did things and basically even said the artists on their charts most of the time don't deserve to be there and/or pay to be there.This is Billboard pretty much being petty by giving a tribute they know he'd never have signed off on or been there to witness.
...and I notice it seems Billboard wants to bury this and so many blogs seem to have removed their postings about this story... but there are still receipts out there about when Prince gave his resignation to Billboard last year after they honored Lady GaGa as woman of the year. http://hotmodelphotos.com/prince-insinuates-that-lady-gaga-paid-for-billboards-women-of-the-year-award-in-leaked-letter/
Madonna was one of the few artists who defended Prince and his accusations regarding Billboard (even thought it could have been a front).
Alicia Keyes would have been a better choice
Just Stop. E'rybody in here has danced or sung a Madonna song. Her catalog is Dope. Hate her all you want but if you outlive her just know that her shit will still be bumped. "Music can be such a revelation" INDEED!
PRINCE HATED MADONNA!!!....it's public knowledge!!!...SMH!
Damn *prince voice*
