Prince! Family Entertainer!!!!!

As a self professed Prince freak, it was a bit weird to see "The Artist"being chosen as entertainment for the Superbowl halftime show. I cringed at the thought of a "neutered" Prince brought out to play the obligitory "Purple Rain, Lets Go Crazy" thing, with perma smiled leotarded models flitting around. But what really disturbed me was the fact that he has become so safe that they would even consider him for this! You would never had seen the Prince of the 80's-late 90's EVER being on such a commercial show. (uhh...see pic to the right.....DIRTY MIND 1980...his best in my opinion)

That being said. Yes my nightmare of hits came true, as did the spandex dancers....but. I thought it was cool to see him out there, in the pouring rain...letting his guitar rip. I was amazed the little feller didnt get electrocuted!!! :-) My wife commented "what is with that thing on his head ( he wore a lucy like do-rag) and that baby blue suit?" I could only comment " He is Prince, and he can get away with that!"

Prince still has "it", its just a little more mainstream.

It was the only thing I was bummed about missing yesterday but know it will show up somewhere on a video.

I had the exact same concerns about Prince even wanting to do the Superbowl...but if you think he was okay, well, I trust you.

(have I ever told you my Prince story?)
