Justin Timberlake To Host Album Listening Session – At Prince’s Paisley Park Home February 1st

prince-justin-timberlake-tgj-600x600.jpg

All roads lead to Super Bowl week for Halftime headliner Justin Timberlake.

Beyond the high-profile gig, the Pop titan will also be releasing his fourth solo album ‘Man Of The Woods’ during said frame.

And it’s clear, he’s keen to launch the LP in a major way.

So much so that he’s secured the residence of late legend Prince for a super exclusive listening session.

Full story below…

According to Star Tribune, JT will host the first playback for his project at the Purple one’s home – Paisley Park – in partnership with American Express.

Situated in Minneapolis (the location of this year’s Super Bowl), the iconic residence will play host to the session on February 1st – a day before the album arrives at retail. And three days before the Halftime Show.

Tickets, which were priced at $80, disappeared almost as fast as they went on sale – despite arriving as a surprise for AmEx cardholders.

It’s expected that the presentation will take place at Paisley Park’s famed Soundstage, which can accommodate 1,800 and regular played host to Prince’s jam session for fans.

It's a good idea to hold the listening party there. I'm sure a lot of people on here will take issue with the fact that Justin Timberlake is even setting foot inside Paisley Park though.

Personally, I'm not a JT fan but he's got some really good songs and if I lived in America I'd like to attend.

It could be much much worse. Just be thankful it's not Justin Bieber. If you consider that Justin Timberlake is a big Prince fan, he must get a big kick out of holding an event at Paisley Park. Could any one of us claim not to want to perform there? As a Prince fan, it's a dream come true.

I've never understood the contempt for Timberlake from some people on here. Not liking his music is one thing but some of the things I've read on here are borderline racist and there's no need for it.

Justin is a huge prince fan and there’s a strong connection. John Blackwell and mike Scott both played in Justin’s band. Im totally cool with it & belive he will be extremely respectful, the interlude at the end of the first track of the album reminds me of the symbol album.

If one artist needs to do it, then JT is one of the few I would like 2 c in PP. Thank GOD it's not Bieber.

JT couldve done that anywhere he wanted and he chose Paisley. that is one hell of a tribute. Wish i could be there. Haters are stupid. This is mad respect. If it helps young JT fans to dig into Prince, even better.

The more I think about it, the more disgusted I am by it.

What a total sellout / lame move to do this at Paisley Park.

IMO, it is completely disrespectful to have this pop tart who just bit on Prince's & Michael Jackson's concepts.. then watered them down for teenage girls and wants to be taken seriously.

What a joke.

They better burn some sage at PP before the Celebration and get rid of the polluted spirit this is going to bring.

Utterly disappointed.

I remember when he was promoting his FutureSexLoveSound album and he was saying that it was heavily inspired by Prince, who he'd always been a big fan of. And you can definitely hear it on some of his songs. I don't know if Justin Timberlake liked Prince as a person but you can't deny that he is a genuine fan of his music. So what if he made fun of him? It doesn't make him less of a fan of Prince's music.

He's no Prince but he's hardly what I'd call talentless. He can sing, at least. And he sings live which is more than can be said for a lot of his contemporaries.

Uhhh and he can Dance!!! Pretty good actor too.
I would rather someone of his popularity seek out the use of PP,
Than any old hotel ballroom. He knows what being in PP means.
And for whatever past mistake he has made this one is legacy building, imo. So good on him.

I swear, some people are simply nuts. Why diss on Timberlake? As current talent goes, he is higher up the pecking order than many I can think of. I couldnt care less anyway. I just want music from the vault and if exposing fans of other artists and one-hit wonders is the key to getting more exposure and more music sales, then so be it. Bring 'em on. Bieber? Go for it. Katy Perry? Yup. One Direction? Awesome. If just 1% of their collective current fanbase took to purchasing a Prince album the estate would be solvent enough to release vault stuff for years to come. And ultimately, thats all I care about.

Personally, whatever years I have remaining in this life, I would like the vast majority of them to be filled with Prince music that my ears have yet to hear. And if making PP a totally commercial entity that plays host to the great untalented is a means to that end, then so be it. Rather that than have Prince's legacy die with his fans because we were too sanctimoniuos and stubborn headed to allow the rest of the world in.

this event doesn't even have the essence of Prince. It's all about JT and promoting his music while "renting" PP.

If this were a listening party at PP by Prince....it would of been either promoting a protege, associate or an upcoming artist

Disliking JT for personal reasons is one thing, but TALENTLESS? I'm not sure you will find many people with MORE TALENT. He can sing, he can dance, and he can act. I believe that is the "holy trinity" in entertainment. He also appears VERY comfortable in a live setting / in front of HUGE crowds and he seems up to the challenge of being "type cast". (He appears to have mostly lost that "boy band singer" stigma). And no, I'm not his publicist and not a really big fan. It's just that the talent is OBVIOUS.



As far as the "listening session", this could be GREAT for PP. What if this is the first step in PP becoming a "go to" place for the entertainment A-listers (outside of LA)? I think it would be great for Biebs and Katy Perry and Taylor Swift and the like to start throwing "listening parties" at PP. More exposure for PP and Prince.

He can hold a tune, I don't think many people would rate him as a particularly gifted vocalist.

He's an okay dancer and a mediocre actor. Just because someone does all these things, it doesn't mean they're actually particularly talented at any of them.

If he were dancing behind MJ/Madonna I would say wow that guy is good so if you could be a back up dancer for the likes of those you could say he is a good dancer
Not mediocre.

I agree with MattyJam. I don't like that Justin has been allowed to hold his listening party at Paisley Park. Would Prince have approved of this? I seriously doubt it. Justin does not belong at PP.

I've seen the dude do a good job in a handful of pretty good movies. He's been in at least a dozen.

Gifted vocalist? I never called him that, but he can sing pretty well live when you put the mike up to his mouth, no computer needed.

OK dancer? Compared to who? He does the same choreographed dancing that 95% of the entertainers have done for the last 15 years, but he looks pretty natural at doing it. He doesn't look stiff or uncomfortable, and he certainly doesn't mind being the lead guy.

So again I say he CAN sing, he CAN dance, and he CAN act (FYI - he is cast in both dramas and comedies, so casting agents/producers obviously feel he has acting range). And you're right, SOMEONE can do all of those things, but not be particularly talented at any of them. Justin Timberlake isn't one of those people.

First off where the hell have I been LOL I’ve had some school and unemployment issues I was dealing with so I haven’t been here in a while but I thought I’d swing back through with Justin is doing a listening party at Paisley Park and put in my two cents. I’m equally a fan of both of them like even though I’m probably too old for posters, my walls in my room is covered with Prince and Justin equally.
I was indifferent at first but I’m OK with it now it was just kind of weird..which is why I was a little hesitant to say OK but it’s not the worst idea. And like most people said he has openly talked about being a fan that’s that’s not a secret. I think that in my honest opinion is usually those really intense fans who are like anybody who looks at Prince wrong is an asshole. I guess since a shade was thrown back-and-forth ( that Prince did initiate I’m just saying) means that they don’t like Justin.
Anyway Honestly the only thing that went through my mind was whether or not they will let him serve meat there (as he has a food and drink menu for his listening party I don’t recall if there is meat on it though) I think that would be disrespectful to to bring meat to Paisley Park the staff can’t even bring a ham sandwiches and I was a little annoyed about the liquor license but I mean what can I do about it right?
he’s one of those people were you either love me or you don’t and like I said I think it’s all of those really intense fans and I really really have an issue with acknowledging that he is not really that bad of a person. People are taking the joke he made about accepting the award and “making fun” of his height and taking it to heart but that was a joke. I mean I’m 5’2” if I got mad at everybody who made fun of my height I wouldn’t be talking anybody basically. I always said prince threw shade and he took shade so I feel like if he wasn’t getting upset and losing sleep over it I don’t know why everybody else is but whatever. 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️💜

Anyway Honestly the only thing that went through my mind was whether or not they will let him serve meat there (as he has a food and drink menu for his listening party I don’t recall if there is meat on it though) I think that would be disrespectful to to bring meat to Paisley Park the staff can’t even bring a ham sandwiches and I was a little annoyed about the liquor license but I mean what can I do about it right? he’s one of those people were you either love me or you don’t and like I said I think it’s all of those really intense fans and I really really have an issue with acknowledging that he is not really that bad of a person. People are taking the joke he made about accepting the award and “making fun” of his height and taking it to heart but that was a joke. I mean I’m 5’2” if I got mad at everybody who made fun of my height I wouldn’t be talking anybody basically. I always said prince threw shade and he took shade so I feel like if he wasn’t getting upset and losing sleep over it I don’t know why everybody else is but whatever. 🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️💜

lol razz lol That is funny as can be! I say if JT want to serve meat serve it, he already going to be in PP. So might as well fire up some Ribs, Steaks, Shrimps, Philly Cheese Steaks, Lobster, Wild Game, Moose, Elk, etc. etc.! Its the Super Bowl week might as well go all out. biggrin

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't think Prince and JT were friends or even a casual acquaintance, much less collaborative artists.

.

Furthermore, I don't think Prince was an admirer of JT's music. They are/were from opposite sides of the spectrum, if you ask me.

.

I really have nothing against JT. I don't love him, nor do I dislike him, but to use Super Bowl Weekend and PP as a means to promote his new album just has opportunist written all over it. Can he get any more attention-seeking than this??!! My God, this is really getting pathetic. Even worse, it makes PP look so desperate and money-grubbing. rolleyes

.

Keep on exploiting Prince; yeah, I'm sure he really appreciates it. mad rolleyes

It IS attention seeking on Justin Timberlake's behalf. That's what you're supposed to do when you're promoting an album though so he's doing nothing wrong.

I really don't understand why some people are so against this. Everyone involved is coming out of this a winner. Justin Timberlake will get a lot of press out of it and he gets to showcase his new album at the home of an artist who inspired him to make music. Paisley Park earns some much needed cash and attention of its own and even Prince will benefit from renewed interest in his work from young Timberlake fans getting curious about the artists who inspired him.

I must be missing your point because I genuinely don't see how Justin Timberlake previewing his album at Paisley Park is a bad thing. I've already outlined some of the good that can come from it but what's the reasoning behind saying it's a bad thing?

As far as other comments on this thread go, it seems that the only reasons people aren't happy with it is based on a dislike of Justin Timberlake, either due to his music or him making fun of Prince. But you said you didn't dislike him so I'm assuming you have another reason.

No, I don't dislike JT. I just don't agree with what he is doing. I stated my reasons above. I respect that you feel differently. Peace.

Sheila E said in her book that Prince would just say out of the blue lets play baseball and have a picnic/bbq, so i am not sure when he gave up meat, but i am assuming the pre 90's era BBQ's

were happening at PP or somewhere he was in attendance. i think that would be an awesome pic

You know I said the exact same thing before and I got so much backlash SMH. I think the biggest part about appreciating Prince as a person and artist is to know that he was shady as shit too and he didn’t give a f*ck About how people felt about him. I personally like that but with this whole Justin threw shade thing...Prince threw the first stone and the mini banter that ensued wasn’t even a big deal. I said before it I’ll say it again it’s the fans that make it a bigger deal than it actually is 😂

That may be true but you can't fault JT for wanting to preview his album at the home of an artist who inspired him. If Prince didn't like you, would you still be a fan of his music and want to visit Paisley Park? I know I would.

And you can't fault the ones in charge of Paisley Park either for wanting a massive pop star to preview his new album at their venue. And it IS their venue. If Prince didn't want other artists to appear at Paisley he would have specified it in his will. But he didn't.

Besides, whether Prince likes JT as a person or not is kind of irrelevant. In his life, Prince was all about the music. I honestly think that he'd just be happy that other musicians are plying their trade at PP, whether we, or even he, is a fan or not.

Justin Timberlake is going to perform on the biggest stage a pop star can take on Sunday when he plays the Super Bowl LII halftime show. And with the game being played in Minneapolis, Minn., it makes perfect sense for him to pay homage to one of the most iconic rock stars of all-time: Prince.

I hope JT doesn't do that. It will make him look like he's trying to outdo what Prince already did. It just seems cheesy, imo. If it was another event other the SB, then maybe okay -- but not for this event. It's gonna be hard for me to watch. eek

Justin Timberlake invites the Revolution to headline his party at Paisley Park

On his new album, Justin Timberlake is a Man of the Woods. Thursday night at Paisley Park, he also proved he is a man of the people. Although the main platform in the soundstage at Prince's complex was outfitted with gear all night, Timberlake never set foot on it, even when addressing the crowd; instead, he opted to mingle with his guests and blend in with the crowd, becoming just another in a sea of fans who danced and sang along with the night's surprise headliner, the Revolution.

Can he get any more attention-seeking than this??!! My God, this is really getting pathetic. Even worse, it makes PP look so desperate and money-grubbing. rolleyes

JT is a mockingbird. He attaches himself to popular people / things and people then equate it with his success.

I think JT is very talented; I don't hate the guy, but there is something about him that seems plastic/fake. I just didn't like him dissing Prince; there is a line you just do not cross, and he did.

Then there’s the fact that hosting a party at Paisley Park at the behest of American Express—which first made tickets available to cardholders—is more or less a direct insult to the legacy of Prince, a dedicated anti-corporatist who risked his reputation and finances to disentangle himself from the capitalist conglomerates that control culture. Hope the party is worth it, though!

I just feel like this is the beginning of something I don't want to start.

I felt very jealous that Mr. Timberlake was at prince's home, and printing off his records and tee-shirts and such. That is Princ'es home. This was far too much.

There comes a point where principles should override money fears. There are so many other things I could think of - in about 8 seconds - that could draw in some revenue, if that's what this was mostly about.

It's usually about people associating themselves with certain other people.

Prince and Paisley Park don't need Justin Timberlake for anything to make them special. In fact, Prince sits at a much higher place than that.

The whole thing just feels wrong, wrong, wrong to me. Like a sell-out.

I can't speak for anyone else but personally, I don't forgive JT. The reason I don't forgive him is because I just don't care what he said so I don't feel like I have something to forgive him for. So he made fun of Prince's height and questioned his position in the charts. So what? Prince was a short guy (though still an inch taller than me) and at that time he wasn't popular enough to have a high charting single. Those are just facts and I'd highly doubt that even Prince himself would have been legitimately bothered by either statement because he knew that both were true. I don't think he was that sensitive about stuff like that. You should give him more credit than that.

This all started with an article in one of the Minneapolis papers. I think it is fabricated. What is more disturbing is that the associates were outside in 9 degree weather while Justin is inside. For some reason if Prince were around I think everyone would be inside jamming. Seems like it was not well thought out at all.

I understand that, as a Prince fan, you want to see Prince's legacy given the respect it deserves so I can see why you'd be wary of a pop star like Justin Timberlake, a man who could never even hope to match Prince's creative genius, doing a tribute to Prince. Leaving aside the fact that he's gone on record both before and after Prince's death and said he was a huge Prince fan, it will still be seen as a publicly stunt. I get that. And I understand.

But even if it is just for publicity, ask yourself who will benefit from it the most? Justin Timberlake has a lot more fans these days than Prince does. With a new album out, he's going to be getting a lot of press coverage too. If he is to work some sort of Prince tribute into his Superbowl performance it will draw a lot of attention to Prince's music and maybe even encourage JTs younger fans to check out the artist who inspired him. Which is a good thing. The more young people who listen to Prince, the better it is for his legacy.

Justin Timberlake might have good intentions with his tribute or he might just be doing it to leech of a much better and more respected artist. But it doesn't matter either way because the result of it would be more attention being paid to Prince's music.

If the recent reports about a Prince Hologram turns out to be true...there were signs, the recent album listening party at Paisley Park and Justin's Supplies video. It has a lot of Blade Runner 2049 refs, and the film itself features a Frank Sinatra and Elvis holograms. We will know for sure on Sunday if it's a groundbreaking tribute or a hot opportunistic mess.

How is playing Let's Go Crazy and Purple Rain for the ten billionth time going to help Prince's legacy? MOst young folk know who he is...I have talked to 6th graders who know who Prince is. The problem is that they think he only sang about 4 songs. Hell, even 25 year olds don't know much about Prince's music. A student teacher I worked with was asked by a MJ fan/student I know "who was better MJ or Prince". He said, "except for when Doves Cry which is a banger, I would definitely say MJ". Now, I didn't say anything, but I wanted to stand up and say "You think When Doves Cry" is the only "banger" Prince had??? Prior to the conversation, I was talking to a 6th grader about 80's and I brought up when Doves Cry and he said he had never heard it. I said it was by Prince who someone you probably don't know. He said he knew Prince and sang a bit of 1999.

Honoring Prince is honoring the scope of his music, not the same three or four songs. I can almost guarantee that if Timberlake uses a hologram, it will be some 80's clip of the Purple Rain era, further turning Prince into a caricature of big hair and ruffles.

Turning him into a caricature is not keeping his music alive. Keep it alive by reminding people that he had more than four songs. His songs are on the internet now. He doesn't need Justin Timberlake playing a hologram of his most overplayed images and songs and incorporating him into his own songs like some kind of background singer and session player. JT could simply mention Prince and recommend some videos to his fans and that would be a better tribute IMO. The superbowl could play a brief 2-minute compilation tribute to Prince with Prince footage (spanning the entirety of his career) before JT starts his show and maybe JT could sing a few lines from one of P's songs. That would invite further interest in Prince's music.

I understand that, as a Prince fan, you want to see Prince's legacy given the respect it deserves so I can see why you'd be wary of a pop star like Justin Timberlake, a man who could never even hope to match Prince's creative genius, doing a tribute to Prince. Leaving aside the fact that he's gone on record both before and after Prince's death and said he was a huge Prince fan, it will still be seen as a publicly stunt. I get that. And I understand. But even if it is just for publicity, ask yourself who will benefit from it the most? Justin Timberlake has a lot more fans these days than Prince does. With a new album out, he's going to be getting a lot of press coverage too. If he is to work some sort of Prince tribute into his Superbowl performance it will draw a lot of attention to Prince's music and maybe even encourage JTs younger fans to check out the artist who inspired him. Which is a good thing. The more young people who listen to Prince, the better it is for his legacy. Justin Timberlake might have good intentions with his tribute or he might just be doing it to leech of a much better and more respected artist. But it doesn't matter either way because the result of it would be more attention being paid to Prince's music.

Timberlake has more fans than Prince? eek omfg

I didn't like what JT said in that shit song regarding the charts and Prince not being there.....Oh, right -- you wasn't there!

Prince did more for music in his almost 40-years as an artist than JT ever will.  JT was still in diapers when Purple Rain was number one on the charts and already had a successful recording career.


.


Maybe some of you forgive easily, but I don't.


 


 



I can't speak for anyone else but personally, I don't forgive JT. The reason I don't forgive him is because I just don't care what he said so I don't feel like I have something to forgive him for. So he made fun of Prince's height and questioned his position in the charts. So what? Prince was a short guy (though still an inch taller than me) and at that time he wasn't popular enough to have a high charting single. Those are just facts and I'd highly doubt that even Prince himself would have been legitimately bothered by either statement because he knew that both were true. I don't think he was that sensitive about stuff like that. You should give him more credit than that.

.

Yeah but so what? Do you honestly think that bothered Prince? I highly doubt it. Prince knew how good he was and how important he was in the music world. I don't think he cared if some pop star made disparaging comments about him.

So if it didn't bother Prince, why would you or me or anyone else feel offended on Prince's behalf?

Turning him into a caricature is not keeping his music alive. Keep it alive by reminding people that he had more than four songs. His songs are on the internet now. He doesn't need Justin Timberlake playing a hologram of his most overplayed images and songs and incorporating him into his own songs like some kind of background singer and session player. JT could simply mention Prince and recommend some videos to his fans and that would be a better tribute IMO. The superbowl could play a brief 2-minute compilation tribute to Prince with Prince footage (spanning the entirety of his career) before JT starts his show and maybe JT could sing a few lines from one of P's songs. That would invite further interest in Prince's music.

PennyPurple said:

How is paying tribute to Prince during the 1/2 time Superbowl, in his hometown, wrong? It sounds like everyone here are wanting to keep Prince and his music, a secret.


Let's keep his memory alive, and this is a great way to do it.

That's a very good idea. I would rather see a nice tribute to Prince before the show rather than hear JT performing his songs.

Well, he's sold more records since his first album than Prince has in that time frame. Justified came out in 2002 I think and since then JT has only released a further 2 albums (excluding his latest one) and those 3 albums have sold a lot more than all of Prince's albums released since 2002. So yeah, as sad as it is, JT has more fans than Prince.

I think JT has talent, but he's no Prince. I neither love him nor hate him. Some of his songs got a nice groove you can dance to, but I don't buy his music or attend his concerts.

A lot of people are upset about this PP event, and rightfully so. It just looks like a money-grubbing event to promote his new album, plus the SuperBowl coming up.....I just pray to God he's not going to do a Prince Tribute......Prince already did the damn SB, so don't be trying to recreate what Prince did......no, just no!!!! mad

Bob Dylan doesn't have a great Superbowl performance under his belt, nor is he dead. Therefore, there is no reason to honour him at the Superbowl.

LOL Don't take it personally I sure don't but I think that some prince fans are the equivalent of Beyoncé fans meaning that all see is their artist and that's all that they need to see/hear and anything that is said or done that seems slightly shady about their artist (whether said artist started it or not) is just a complete no-no which means they as "loyal fans" need to absolutely hate this person now because it seemed a little shady; even if the artist themselves don't care. I always say, If this person (who people are offended for) isn't getting mad, I'm not to get mad on their behalf because if they don't give a fuck why should I? As someone who's been short all of their life (literally on the front row for every class picture never meet the second row, Can't enjoy the general admission because I won't be able to see short) I didn't get offended at the height comment either I can almost be certain that he didn't but to each his own

Also, Prince wasn't the only one to say something about Sexy never leaving, there were plenty of dj's and critics who made similar comments before him.

I think some people here are waaay too possessive of Prince and his legacy. Maybe Justin talked shit about Prince at some point during his career, so what? He clearly has always been a fan of the man's music as well, and I don't see why he shouldn't be able to host a listening party at Paisley Park. The hologram thing (if true) is a bit sketchy and I don't know how I feel about it, a simple cover would be more tasteful. But hey, at least he's helping to bring Prince to a larger audience and maybe turn some new people onto Prince's music. That's one of the things that really bothers me about some of you hardcore fans: you're all up in arms about how people don't appreciate Prince, or fuss over how the last few releases charted and were received... but when any superstar tries to bring him into the mainstream in a way that doesn't cater to your specific standards, you have a knee-jerk reaction and call it blasphemy

From Prince's mouth:

.

"That's the most demonic thing imaginable. Everything is as it is, and it should be. If I was meant to jam with Duke Ellington, we would have lived in the same age. That whole virtual reality thing... it really is demonic. And I am not a demon," he said. "Also, what they did with that Beatles song ["Free As a Bird"], manipulating John Lennon's voice to have him singing from across the grave... that'll never happen to me. To prevent that kind of thing from happening is another reason why I want artistic control."

Good! Now all Timberfake has to do is stick to his own damn music and let his performance stand on its own merit.

WTF? Y'all would be bitching if Justin DIDN'T acknowledge Prince at a Super Bowl held in Minneapolis. Homeboy can't win. Why not be grateful that a major artist still wants to show some love for Prince in the first place. Everyone needs to chill the f out. And Sheila needs to get off her high horse -- love her but I doubt that Prince would have appreciated the tell-all book/interviews and that tacky new logo of hers anyway.

Daily Mail says despite denials from the family, there WILL be a hologram. Take it with a grain of salt. Personally, I think it's just hype to get people to watch and there will not be a hologram.

I think she's just saying that she talked to him and he told her that there is no hologram and she believes him. I, myself, on the other hand believe him about as much as I believe he brought sexy back. I DON'T!

I’m going by her re-tweets which to me suggest she wants people to think she did something (besides just getting clarification from JT). Our Queen Sheila is getting things done?!? Oh really? Does she want us to believe the hologram was going to happen until she contacted JT?

I doubt it. Especially, if it turns out JT lied just to placate her, if the NFL paid for a hologram set up and have every intention on his ass using it.

If JT told Sheila there is no Hologram and Omarr says the same then there’s no hologram. Only question is was it part of the show and scrapped last minute or was it just bad information leaked to TMZ. I still think Sheila wants it to look like she stopped it from happening.

LOL! JT swore up and down that Janet's titty wasn't supposed to pop out and I don't believe that either. Honestly, I'd be very happy to be wrong because being right would have me tremendously pissed off this evening and I really don't want that. But I just do not trust JT. So I won't be convinced it's not going to happen until after it's over and it didn't happen. shrug

That’s what I thought too Like I like Sheila E but sometimes I wonder...and I know among the unpopular opinion right now on org but I don’t think there was ever a hologram I think TMZ started a rumorAnd judging by that “leaked” footage of the halftime performance is what you really couldn’t see shit and only heard 3 snippets of songs I don’t really believe them either. But it had already been confirmed by Omar and she made a statement after he fact like she told Justin not to do it and he said OK. I feel like she fishing for something with that tweet But like everybody else is just my opinion

Let's be logical, though (not that you're not): This is not going to be another MJ or Tupac projection-on-glass sort of thing.

I would think it's going to be a video or some sort of projection on a larger screen to pay tribute to the man in his hometown. Even the moving screens like Madonna had for "4 Minutes" on the Sticky n' Sweet Tour would be reasonable.

I wouldn't be surprised (or mad) if JT sang part of a Prince song, or incorporated (mashed up) a Prince song into something of his own.

Still makes me wonder though. I think there may have been plans for a hologram but sentiment changed that. Jon Bream is pretty reliable and has been writing about Prince for ages. If he claims he was told by an NFL source that a hologram was used during the Friday rehearsal, and that there was going to be a Prince hologram included in the show, I can't help but feel conflicted as to who or what to think or believe. Just my own opinion, but a few of the sources of denials are less than reliable, historically speaking, also it was my understanding that the family doesn't have a say in if something like this happens or not?

All of this hubbub is generating a lot of talk about the halftime show and about Justin so, like others have said, mission accomplished there.

Confirmed by who? All I see on Google is they were rumored to be about Prince. When did Timberlake or Timbaland confirm it?

.

The lyrics reference Timberlake’s 2006 single “SexyBack,“ which topped the charts despite initially receiving negative marks from critics. However, it’s also a reference to Prince, who poked fun at “SexyBack” during a performance at a post-Emmy Awards party in 2006. Prince reportedly said, “For whoever is claiming they are bringing sexy back, sexy never left!"

.

The following January 2007, Timberlake presented the award for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes. Prince won the award for “Song of the Heart" from the animated film Happy Feet, but didn’t make it to the ceremony because he was reportedly stuck in traffic. When Timberlake accepted the award on his behalf, he mocked Prince’s 5'2 height.

.

Prince fans angrily pointed out on Twitter that Timberlake previously dissed Prince on Timbaland’s 2007 track “Give It To Me,” which also featured Nelly Furtado. On the song, JT sang:

We missed you on the charts last week
Damn, that’s right you wasn’t there
Now if se-sexy never left, then why is everybody on my shi-i-it?
Don’t hate on me just because you didn’t come up with it

Phenomenal halftime performance!!! The dance moves...the piano...the Prince tribute...singing every one of his hits...coming up into the stadium...going into the crowd...and the ending with "Can't Stop the "Feeling"...it was PERFECT!!! Phenomenal performance.

The tribute to Prince was PERFECT!!!

I guess I really don't know his music because I only recognized like 2 songs besides Prince. His tribute was tasteful I guess but as with the the majority of the halftime shows in recent years it's all been a bit underwhelming.

I know people think I'm a cold heart, but I'm not. I started bawling during "I Would Die 4 U", then the city went purple. GOD STOP IT! I'm still pained that he's gone. No tribute is ever going to do him justice. But as long as it is heartfelt, that's what counts. And it was a nice nod to him.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

That was a huge production!! I have to say, it was hard hearing the band at first; the sound was awful.

.

The Prince Tribute came and went so fast......I was like, huh? It didn't feel very emotional, imo. Maybe I have to see it again. eek

It was very low-key, considering all the drama surrounding whether or not there was gonna be a Hologram. For me, it was just "okay". bored

But, it looks like the Phillies are winning!

Very good. I wish the tribute to P was a tad longer and not in the middle of JT’s song, but it was beautifully done—with the big image on a curtain in a way reminiscent of P’s super bowl and the city being lit up in the purple live symbol. JT’s performance was warm and fun (although not particularly musically impressive). P still reigns supreme.

Yea, I think JT should have done the tribute to Prince first. Honestly, I was expecting it to be more elaborate than it was. It's all good.

I really wasn't expecting him to sing that song, I'd have guessed that he would have done a dance number but that wasn't bad. As others have said it was a tastefully done tribute and the symbol projection was a nice touch. Most of the other songs that Justin sang just passed over my head apart from the really big hits but it was an ok show

I'm glad to see that people on here seem to be mostly OK with the tribute, from what I can see.

I've had to stop looking at Twitter, because the amount of fake rage and people trying to be more outraged than the next person in a kind of 'I'm such a massive fan!' type thing is too much.

It was a brief tribute, which I liked and it could have been far worse.

Shiela E tweeted that Prince specifically told her to never let anyone make a hologram of him. And Sheila E apparently let a bitch know, because she later tweeted that there will be no Prince hologram. In other words, JT hit the delete button on his planned Prince hologram after figuring out that if he actually went through with that mess, a swarm of doves would attack his ass.

It gave a special meaning to the performance. It was like Prince was saying to the City that he loved and all of his fans that he died, but not really, because he is not human, he is a dove, he's conscience, he is love. Not body, but soul.

neutral lol I went to a LOT of Prince shows. It doesn't matter how many, it was a lot. And I'm here to tell ya', Prince rushed through as many hits as he could more times than I care to remember. JT is not Prince, duh, but this seems like an odd complaint.

I had a hard time watching the half time performance, not because it was bad, but because I still have a hard time with all things Prince related. I still don't listen to his music much, to be honest. I'm sure I will, but I haven't gotten there yet. I try to come to the Org on occasion, but there's just too many memories.

Anyway, I watched the Super Bowl (and obviously the half time show) at an outdoor party with about 30 people. When it got to the Prince part inside the stadium I was like, "ah damn", and had to kind of look away a bit (which a couple people who know me noticed). Again, not because I had a problem with anything JT did - I really don't. Prince isn't ours - he belonged to millions and millions of people who loved his music and nobody who covers his songs or performs a tribute is doing so because they intended to insult him (or his multitude of fans). But then they went to the outside shot... and things turned purple... and then the symbol... and I was like, "siiiigh." That hit me really hard because it's Minneapolis. I feel like a lot of people are overlooking the fact that JT didn't just snap his fingers and make that happen. That took the coordinated effort of A LOT of people. More than that, it took the coordinated effort of a lot of Minneapolis people. Those people are Prince people. Minneapolis is Prince's town and it probably always will be.Minneapolis got to host the Super Bowl and celebrate Prince with the entire world. So it's with that in mind that I say I'm finding a lot of the complaints about the half time show sadly misplaced. Funny thing is, after it was over the people who know me well started asking me what I thought. Ya know what I told them? .... I told them a lot of Prince fans would be pissed off and talking shit about it like it was the worst thing they'd ever seen. lol lol Thanks for not disappointing, Org.

I loved JT’s performance. The small Prince tribute displaying Prince on a sheet was a bit odd but really ok. I think JT looked forward to his session at PP.

You are not alone as I share your disappointment. But I knew from the start whatever he did or didn’t do people would be angry with it. And apparently everybody knows Prince so everybody knows that he would like it or would like it in it’s ridiculous really. We didn’t know prince even if we think we knew him we didn’t know him, it just breaks my heart. People wanted to so badly hate this thing that they actually asked for that they’re willing to call the tribute something it’s not(hologram) so they can continue being angry about nothing. It’s just really sad because you can’t really mourn, process and find peace when people are so negative all the time. I thought I would come here And be anyone fans who weren’t negative like those on Twitter or Facebook but it’s no better. So I’ll learn to grieve in my own way, if this is what a “family” is supposed to be like I don’t want it. And furthermore for everybody who thinks they know Prince this behavior shouldn’t even exist because it’s not what he stood for he did speak on that as well

Next thing we will have other doing the same. I feel this marks a true end of an era. Prince will now be a caricature of the curly haired 20 something forever, his music used to prop other artists and sell products like baby diapers, toothpaste, fast food restaurants and maybe even beer etc.

Prince publicly spoke about some things but he is not on earth anymore so it does not matter.

People will pay tribute as they see it and forget about the man they are paying honor.

I am not talking about the purple at the end - it was wonderful his town did that- I am talking the use of his music used to prop another musician - I get it. It is just sad that this is what will be for Prince for now on when this is the very thing he said he was not fond of-just sorry for Prince for the disregard of who he was as artist and a man.

Prince wasn't fond of a lot of things, but Prince wasn't ALWAYS right. The passing of songs from one person to another, one generation to another, one CULTURE to another, is as old as music itself. Passing music on to new people is what keeps music alive. That's why we're still listening to music that was written 1000 years ago.

As far as this goes... "and sell products like baby diapers, toothpaste, fast food restaurants and maybe even beer etc."... not unless the people managing his estate choose to sell his music for that purpose. And if that happens you should be mad at the people managing his estate and no one else.

Vashtix -- you have summed it up well. The City of Minneapolis' tribute to Prince was touching. JT's use of Prince's image and voice was not appropriate. He did not need to pay tribute to Prince. If he felt compelled to do so, then he should have done the song by himself. Prince specifically stated in an interview that was published by Guitar World in 1998 that he would not sing a duet with a dead artist, and he did not want his voice and image used for such purposes. Prince was not referring to holograms, specifically, but any use of his image and voice for any virtual reality purpose. JT should have respected Prince's expressed wishes.

JT didn't use Prince's image and voice during a program that is watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world without permission. Something people should probably be considering before they pass judgement.

There was no hologram. Holograms are actual size, not 50 feet tall. Those images were projections, which we can now do at ridiculously huge sizes in HD.

I completely agree with both of you. People are just looking for a reason to be mad. It was a good tribute and the thought that counts. You're in Minneapolis, it's really thoughtful to honor Prince, and the way he did it was tasteful. It wasn't over the top and it was Prince singing his own song, which I appreciated the most. And to hear everyone say "Prince wouldn't have like this" It's like we don't know what Prince would like. We all want to protect his legacy but don't be negative all the time. It was thoughtful and Justin did his best to honor him the best way he could. You just can't please everyone and someone will always find a reason to not like something. It was a thoughtful tribute. Lighting up Prince's hometown with his symbol was very nice and it warmed my heart, almost brought tears to my eyes. I completely felt the love seeing his symbol light up across my tv and across his city.

It was tacky, as usual with someone like JT, but, more importantly, who gave him Prince's isolated vocals to do this? Seems the Estate is doing anything for a buck except doing what make them the most money: poll his fans or even consult with his fans to gauge interest... Just wait for a Jay-Z or Will.I.Am remix of old Prince songs or added garbage to outtakes...
This Superbowl thing was the first big step into fucking up his legacy...
Guess it's time for me to drop off and enjoy the last 40 years...

Prince's half time show just took it to a whole new level and 11 years later it still hasn't been topped and I believe it never will.

As for JT's tribute... I find him such a poor artist, specially in this kind of context, where you are either brilliant or it completely fails the purpose. There's no artistry, I think. I don't even like his dancing, but I guess it all comes down to personal taste.

I feel the same way. Sadly, even though I didn't initially want them to include Prince videos in the show, the fleeting moments during which Prince appeared were pure perfection... Prince was so great that any Prince tribute will always be a very hard challenge for anyone.

I totally agree about passing music down and people singing and playing it. I just think we will see images of Prince doing duets with people from here on in- that is all. I do not want to see Prince do duets or his voice alongside. When Natalie Cole did it with her Dad Nat King Cole it was cool. However I am not ready for Prince duets. Just me. I know I am not in majority. I get the feeling any artist with the backing of deep pocketed corporation will do Prince duets now . I think Prince's music and genius will be remembered without the technology bringing him back from the dead. I love the big band era and Jazz from way back when but I do not need to see Thelonius Monk in a hologram or image on a screen. I learned a love of the music by hearing - just saying- it can be done respectfully movie soundtracks and just covering the music etc. Music travels decades no tech needed, no cheesy stuff.

.

I am not trying to be negative Nellie here but JT also took a swipe at Janet. That is a whole topic on its own. If the artist had not been JT who openly mocked Prince too, it added to my not feeling it. The performance is over and I am happy for all who enjoyed it and have something to cherish. I am happy for the great emotions it evoked and many fans shared.

Yeah I thought it was pretty mediocre. And not because it didn’t make some grand political statement or do something outrageous. I didn’t think the sound or choreography was that great. And if JT can really play instruments I wish we would have seen more of that than him dad dancing on stage.

I don't think JT intended to disrespect Prince, I really don't. I wasn't sure if I should watch it, or if I'd like it. But I was surprised and really touched by what he did for Prince and Minneapolis. "Minneapolis, this is for you." Come on, that was nice wasn't it?

However, to all those who think they can talk for Prince: We don't know what he really thought about JT, because he never talked about him again after that little dispute. We also don't know what JT really thinks about Prince and according to Sheila E, he talked good about him.

I had mixed feelings too and in another post I was raging against JT and now I think that was too much and dumb.

And wow, I also read somethin' from a guy who got a little racist, degrading this whole thing as a thing only white audiences would like.........Somethin' like that and that was kind of disrespectful to say. Arrogant too. Some people should really jump off their high horse.

Oh and I wanna add: Funny that no one really bashed Bruno Mars dressing up as Prince during his tribute at the Grammys. How was that okay? He literally copied Prince from head to toe, but he gets credit and love from the people. JT didn't really copy Prince. Why are there doublestandards? I find Bruno's "tribute" more disrespectful and cringe worthy.

Comes with the territory. Anyone doing a halftime show knows the scrutiny they’re in for. I do think it’s unfair with some of the reviews knocking JT for not being political or still harping on about what happened with Janet in 2004. One, it’s the Super Bowl. People don’t want to be bombarded with political messages. Two, judge the performance on its own merits. Whether you feel Janet got a raw deal or not has nothing to do with this performance.

I find Bruno's "tribute" more disrespectful and cringe worthy.

He got it from me. I said that night it was like bad karaoke. But for some reason Bruno Mars is untouchable so it was sacrilege to say anything negative about the performance.

A lot of people cut him down for the outfit.

I expected the tribute to be a bit longer...it was more like a mention.I think the projected image of Prince was nicely done but I would have preferred if Justin had not sung along.I'm not sure Prince would have approved of that.I also loved the way the city went purple and the symbol effect.I thought that was beautiful.I didn't really care for Justin's performance overall but his dancing was still on point.I lost interest in JT after Future Sex/LoveSounds so I wasn't that familiar with the music.

JT didn't use Prince's image and voice during a program that is watched by hundreds of millions of people around the world without permission. Something people should probably be considering before they pass judgement.


It was tacky, as usual with someone like JT, but, more importantly, who gave him Prince's isolated vocals to do this? Seems the Estate is doing anything for a buck except doing what make them the most money: poll his fans or even consult with his fans to gauge interest... Just wait for a Jay-Z or Will.I.Am remix of old Prince songs or added garbage to outtakes...

JT talked about it last night on the Tonight Show, they were given not only the vocal stems but also the unedited footage of his performance of the song in Purple Rain.

But then they went to the outside shot... and things turned purple... and then the symbol... and I was like, "siiiigh." That hit me really hard because it's Minneapolis. I feel like a lot of people are overlooking the fact that JT didn't just snap his fingers and make that happen. That took the coordinated effort of A LOT of people. More than that, it took the coordinated effort of a lot of Minneapolis people.

Yeah, uhm... That was CGI.

Yeah I thought it was pretty mediocre. And not because it didn’t make some grand political statement or do something outrageous. I didn’t think the sound or choreography was that great. And if JT can really play instruments I wish we would have seen more of that than him dad dancing on stage.



He pretended to play piano like at one of those fairground pianos where the keys play themselves. It was a nice touch, i enjoyed that bit.

Next thing we will have other doing the same. I feel this marks a true end of an era. Prince will now be a caricature of the curly haired 20 something forever, his music used to prop other artists and sell products like baby diapers, toothpaste, fast food restaurants and maybe even beer etc.

Prince publicly spoke about some things but he is not on earth anymore so it does not matter.

People will pay tribute as they see it and forget about the man they are paying honor.

.

I am not talking about the purple at the end - it was wonderful his town did that- I am talking the use of his music used to prop another musician - I get it. It is just sad that this is what will be for Prince for now on when this is the very thing he said he was not fond of-just sorry for Prince for the disregard of who he was as artist and a man.

.

I don't think that will happen because they have to go through Prince's Estate first. I don't think you're gonna see Prince on cereal boxes or pancake mix boxes. That would be hideous.

.

I think for the most part, his associate artists are honoring him in a respectful manner.

.

I think JT did "okay". Nothing spectacular. It could have been better, considering it was Prince's Hometown; but maybe JT felt he would be criticized for being too "over the top"?

I have to say, the sound was really shitty in the beginning -- the band was great, but sound quality was f-up. After a few minutes, it sounded better.

I was going to say that Prince’s ghost probably sabotaged JT’s sound as an act of revenge for projecting his sexiness on a boring factory-defected sheet, but I don’t think that’s what happened. Prince was going to sabotage JT, but while watching the rehearsal from the great beyond, he figured that he shouldn’t bother since the performance was going to sabotage itself.

You are not alone as I share your disappointment. But I knew from the start whatever he did or didn’t do people would be angry with it. And apparently everybody knows Prince so everybody knows that he would like it or would like it in it’s ridiculous really. We didn’t know prince even if we think we knew him we didn’t know him, it just breaks my heart. People wanted to so badly hate this thing that they actually asked for that they’re willing to call the tribute something it’s not(hologram) so they can continue being angry about nothing. It’s just really sad because you can’t really mourn, process and find peace when people are so negative all the time. I thought I would come here And be anyone fans who weren’t negative like those on Twitter or Facebook but it’s no better. So I’ll learn to grieve in my own way, if this is what a “family” is supposed to be like I don’t want it. And furthermore for everybody who thinks they know Prince this behavior shouldn’t even exist because it’s not what he stood for he did speak on that as well
I completely agree with both of you. People are just looking for a reason to be mad. It was a good tribute and the thought that counts. You're in Minneapolis, it's really thoughtful to honor Prince, and the way he did it was tasteful. It wasn't over the top and it was Prince singing his own song, which I appreciated the most. And to hear everyone say "Prince wouldn't have like this" It's like we don't know what Prince would like. We all want to protect his legacy but don't be negative all the time. It was thoughtful and Justin did his best to honor him the best way he could. You just can't please everyone and someone will always find a reason to not like something. It was a thoughtful tribute. Lighting up Prince's hometown with his symbol was very nice and it warmed my heart, almost brought tears to my eyes. I completely felt the love seeing his symbol light up across my tv and across his city.

i liked Justin Timberlake's superbowl performance/tribute. he has an awesome voice and kept it going. the tribute was fine, not too over done and it looked beautiful. made me miss Prince for sure, but he's gone and Mr. Timberlake is a huge fan. i don't knw his music very well but i'm planning to check it out more. that man can sing!

I am content that Justin did this respectfully.

Even Morris Day was pleased.


Exactly. Questlove gave it a thumbs up. PRNFamily gave it a thumbs up on Twitter & Instagram, as did Tyka on her Instagram. Brownmark was at the Orpheum for the live Tonight Show airing. The only people who seem to have a wet diaper are the "fans". Buncha babies.


And Alan Leeds gave the thumps up on it too.

co-sign nod imo jt's a lot disrespectful to mock Prine' height (in 2007) and then flaunt an egotistical, arrogant and transparent on stage disregard, all in the name of his insensitive narcissism. also i find it a wee bit suspect that youtube had no video of Justin accepting the golden globe award for Prince who was stuck in traffic. The video can be seen in the 2007 daily.uk article i posted (post #346) a few post ago. [Edited 2/5/18 16:02pm]

I don't think Prince was as sensitive to jokes as a lot of his fans are. He referred to himself as the purple Yoda. If that's not a man who's OK with his height then I don't know what is.

Justin just made a quick light-heart joke to fill in the awkward waiting blank. He was slightly under pressure and that's probably the first thing that came to mind (maybe it was the thought of the penguins in Happy Feet). Prince very often joked about people's physical appearances and shapes... It's called humour. 'Wooden leg' anyone?

It's dedicated 2 my first wife

Prince was allowed as JT is allowed. Prince did not go around trying to pimp others for his own hype. He did not drudge anyone up from the dead for his own purpose. Prince was so talented and gifted he did not need to do that.

.

BTW Justin is being dragged by the nationa media for what he did for the Super Bowl. I am convinced Prince even fromthe dead you don't mess with Prince.

I am guessing you are referring to the Japanese style flip-flops he was wearing whilst travelling. I believe this style of flip-flops have always been high and were probably more of a fashion statement at the time... It is starting to look like it is the fans who are having more of an issue with Prince's height than he himself did. Maybe when he was younger that might have been an issue for him, but later he seemed comfortable with himself and even didn't mind standing alongside very tall women onstage, like Damaris for example. I am sure Prince wouldn't have made such a fuss about Justin's careless joke - such a detail in the grand scheme of things.

He frequently pointed out his own shortness in interviews and songs, especially during live performances. The high heels and stuff was a fashion thing, not a self conscious thing. Tom Cruise wears hidden lifts in his shoes to make him appear taller because he is actually self conscious about it. Prince wore glittery heels to draw attention to the fact that he was wearing heels. See the difference??

I wish people would stop projecting their own insecurities onto Prince. He was a short man and he knew it. You'll never see him try to hide that fact. So I doubt Justin Timberlake lowering a microphone is going to upset him. Even if JT did it out of pure malice rather than the joke it was intended to be, I don't think Prince would give a shit. And why would he?

It's not a "sudden love and respect". JT said Prince was the main influence on the FUTURESEXLOVESOUND album at the time of its release 12 years ago.

I actually will stop because I have better things to do with my time than wait for you to provide an intelligent counter point and it's clear that your issues with Justin Timberlake go well beyond him mocking Prince.

I feel really sorry for you in a way because I get that you like Prince and your heart is probably in the right place but there's something not right with you. You shouldn't get offended on someone else's behalf. And I genuinely mean it when I say I have nothing personal against you and that I hope you're OK because you definitely give off the impression that you have some deep seated issues.

Regardless, this will be the last you'll hear from me on the matter. Good luck.

He's been swaggajackin' MJ forever, he swaggajacked Prince by using the Beautiful Ones drums in that one song of his (after the diss), he swaggajacked Robin Thicke a few years ago when he straightened his hair and started wearing suits and tuxes, and now he's swaggjackin' Gaga and Bey with his "woke", "I found myself" country-fied persona. And his personality grates. He just carries himself with a hubris that is not endearing in the least. And, although I didn't watch his SB performance, I read that he opened with Rock Your Body when he could have opened with any other song from his repertoire. It was like a dig.

Right right, so Justin has got a few seconds to fill in and he thinks, " I know, Ill take the piss out of his height, that'll have em rolling in the aisles." You made an extremely lame arguement for Justins arrogant posturing at that award show. Try better.

Btw, Is ole Cloreen a real person? No.your comparison is so off.

so is that what Justin says right after opening the card for the winner. "late again"?? it sounds

like "leo again", but if it is "late again" what the heck is that about???

This seems like a Low Ranking to me for Justin...hhhhmmm I thought it was better than 17 in my opinion.

17. Justin Timberlake (2018)

Justin went through a serviceable run of his main hits, taking his show from a room inside the U.S. Bank Stadium up into the Super Bowl LII crowd. But the audio was garbled to start off the show, and some didn't appreciate the Prince tribute and the use of "Rock Your Body," the song that triggered the Wardrobe Malfunction.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/music/gallery/last-26-super-bowl-halftime-shows-ranked-from-u2-to-justin-timberlake-photos/ss-BBIzTiV?li=BBnbfcL&ocid=mailsignout#image=11

Evidently this Group of Rankers don't know what they doing, they got 6 Performances ahead of Prince! eek razz biggrin

7. Prince (2007)

Super Bowl XLI took place under a torrential Florida downpour, but that played right into Prince's hands. His performance of "Purple Rain" amid raindrops turned purple by stage lights was breathtaking, as was his take on Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower."

And

2. Michael Jackson (1993)

The one that started it all. MJ's reign as the King of Pop was coming to an end at this time ... and the beginning of his creeper reputation began later that year with the first wave of sexual abuse allegations. But he still had enough star power to make the halftime show a must-watch event for the first time ever. The children's choir performance of "We Are the World," followed by Jackson's dramatic finale performance of "Heal the World," became a defining moment of his career, one that would be reenacted 16 years later at his memorial service at the Staples Center.

mad loldisbelief

So tell me people do you think JT should be higher than 17 and 6 people ahead of P's performance, especilaly MJ? lol

What exactely would you have expected Justin to do at the Superbowl instead of what he did?

Just a clip of Prince at the 2007 Superbowl would have done plus the lights of course, which were great. No karaoke singing along whilst pretending to accompany P on the piano. No rageddy looking bed sheet either. . [Edited 2/6/18 10:05am]

On the subject of the Prince tribute, Noah mocked people who were "pre-angry" at Timberlake by thinking the performance would feature a Prince hologram when it didn't.

.

"People were already pre-angry, they were like, 'Don't make Prince a hologram, he hates holograms!' and they were like, 'Justin, how dare you?!' and he was like, 'Guys, it's not a hologram' and they were like, 'We don't care! We chose anger before we knew exactly what you were gonna do, so now we're angry! I already paid for this anger I can't take it back to the store!'"

.

LMAO!! lol lol

It was a strange song to go with, imo. Prince had a lot of beautiful songs that could be performed, but they chose "I would die 4 U"? It's almost like they are mocking his death. And, the piano in the circle (more illuminati symbolism) & his image up on a screen (or a cheap sheet, I should say). Just NO!! mad

I think "When Doves Cry" or "Nothing compares 2 U" would have been a much better choice.

They always put on these satanic rituals in arena's. The colors, the mirrors (scrying), circles, cubes (black cube of saturn), holding up the "V" sign, the wristbands, the selfie with the kid (red handkerchief), political agendas, the rainbow colors (gay rights), pyramids......it's all being pushed on people and they don't even know it.

The best part of the Halftime show was when the city went purple. They did not need JT for that.

I can also say the best part is that the audio was messed up when JT was trying to sing with Prince.

Yes it was. I'm the one that posted it here last night. There was no reference to JT nor Prince in the title of the video so I had to really search to find it. But I know it was working when I posted it because I watched it again from here after I posted. Strangely enough though, it was removed from Youtube less than 24 hours later with no infringement or violation notice, mind you. Just "This video is unavailable." hrmph

Personally, out of all of Prince's vast collection of music, I thought the song choice was real tacky and petty on JT's part. Yet, it was simply par for the course, for his lil bitch type ass, none the less. Regardless of the spin he's trying to put on it. Yeah I saw the Jimmy Fallon interview, I do not believe for one damn second, what happened Sunday night "was what had been planned all along." Because I know good and damn well, with all the time and MONEY they had for planning, those projected images of Prince should and would not have been blurry AF! hammer

Now that all is said and done, the only thing I know and care about is Justin Timberfake's lil bitch type ass shall not and will not be eternally ghost-riding on Prince's sexy motherfucking coattails!

I found the following review interesting:
Compared with Prince's, Justin Timberlake's halftime show was a wimpy joke
6 February 2018
: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/entertainthis/2018/02/05/compared-prince-justin-timberlakes-halftime-show-hilariously-bad/307243002
Considering Sunday's Super Bowl was hosted in Minneapolis, not paying tribute to Prince during the halftime show would’ve been sacrilege.
ust Minneapolis’ own king of pop, he also gave the Super Bowl its best-ever halftime show performance in 2007. Yet, it’s unlikely that Prince and his deservedly-large ego would've been satisfied with the treatment he received: a tribute from Justin Timberlake, an artist with whom Prince had a historically fraught relationship, during a show that fell woefully short of The Purple One's legendary 2007 set.

There’s a reason why, when rumors spread last week that a hologram version of Prince would join Timberlake on-stage, that the late singer’s fans rioted. Timberlake had a history of mocking Prince in public, from taking a dig at the 5’2’’ singer’s height at the 2007 Golden Globes to dedicating an entire verse to dissing Prince on his song Give It To Me later that year.

Really? So many Mixed views? I wonder what the ratio is 50% say it was good or very good and 50% saying they didn't like it???

Well I guess this is part of the negative comments:

Prince sang his songs during his halftime show, while Timberlake let his backing tracks and background singers do the heavy lifting, following a disastrously garbled opening in which the sound was so muffled fans could barely make out Timberlake’s lyrics.

Between Timberlake willfully ignoring his Suit and Tie vocals in favor of kicking around his mic stand, and the singer desperately reaching for his high notes at the end of Mirrors, he was doomed whether he opened his mouth or not.

Prince also knew how to balance his classic songs with some innovative risks, ripping through faithful versions of his hits (save a few added guitar solos) before debuting a blistering mashup of All Along the Watchtower and the Foo Fighters’ Best Of You. Meanwhile, Timberlake’s attempts to remix his own pop classics resulted in the lurching rock arrangements of songs like My Love and Cry Me a River, the instrumentals further jumbled by a horns section behind him. As heard in the confused Americana-R&B of Man of the Woods, Timberlake’s genre experimentations didn’t just doom his new album, but also Sunday's show.

And Prince knew how to stick his landing, ending his halftime set with one of the greatest moments in halftime show history, his breathtaking performance of Purple Rain. What would Prince have thought that Can't Stop The Feeling, a song from the Trolls movie soundtrack, capped Timberlake's set instead of his duet with Prince?

Strangely enough though, it was removed from Youtube less than 24 hours later with no infringement or violation notice, mind you. Just "This video is unavailable." hrmph

It was a strange song to go with, imo. Prince had a lot of beautiful songs that could be performed, but they chose "I would die 4 U"? It's almost like they are mocking his death. And, the piano in the circle (more illuminati symbolism) & his image up on a screen (or a cheap sheet, I should say). Just NO!! mad

.

I think "When Doves Cry" or "Nothing compares 2 U" would have been a much better choice.

.

JT is just another Illuminati puppet, unfortunately.

.

The entire halftime show was filled with occult symbolism.


Personally, out of all of Prince's vast collection of music, I thought the song choice was real tacky and petty on JT's part. Yet, it was simply par for the course, for his lil bitch type ass, none the less. Regardless of the spin he's trying to put on it. Yeah I saw the Jimmy Fallon interview, I do not believe for one damn second, what happened Sunday night "was what had been planned all along." Because I know good and damn well, with all the time and MONEY they had for planning, those projected images of Prince should and would not have been blurry AF! hammer

Now that all is said and done, the only thing I know and care about is Justin Timberfake's lil bitch type ass shall not and will not be eternally ghost-riding on Prince's sexy motherfucking coattails!

People are pissed off now because they aren't saying whether or not there was a Hologram planned. If they did scrap the supposed Hologram, that would be a lot of money lost. I dunno what to think at this point.

.

The tribute was cheap and lazy AF. Prince did not want a Hologram, but that is basically what they did. An insult to Prince and a slap in the face! mad

JT is the gift that keeps on giving- NO you do not mess with Prince whether he is on earth or not. Here is another bad review . . . oh and it is not from Prince fans who are haters-

Justin Timberlake And Tom Brady Were The Super Bowl's Biggest Losers

,

.

Justin Timberlake probably didn’t plan for his week to go like this.

On Friday, the 37-year-old pop star released his fifth studio album, Man of the Woods, a curious amalgamation of analog funk, Americana and futuristic pop that’s already earned the distinction of being his worst-reviewed album. Pitchfork’s Jamieson Cox called the record “a misstep large enough to merit relitigating Justin Timberlake’s status as a pop superstar,” while The Spinoff’s Eli Matthewson admitted outright that he couldn’t even make it through the 66-minute slog. In fact, it’s not hard to imagine other critics sculpting their savage reviews days in advance, as Timberlake has quickly morphed into one of the least likable figures in pop music.

To be clear, Timberlake is still a global superstar, and early sales projections for Man of the Woods are massive, albeit much lower than his former projects. His Super Bowl halftime-show performance should have afforded him the opportunity to remind the world why he’s remained a pop-culture juggernaut for two decades. Instead, the singer delivered a lifeless, by-the-numbers performance that largely eschewed his new album in favor of his widely beloved back catalog.

Timberlake usually specializes in these types of slick, safe nostalgia romps, but an atrocious audio mix rendered his lithe falsetto useless, and he couldn’t even be bothered to keep up with his band and backup dancers onstage. Timberlake suddenly lost the ability to thrill a crowd, something he had done so effortlessly in two previous Super Bowl halftime shows.

.

But on Sunday night, the Man of the Woods performed like a man of the past, with no way of reconciling his old-school, digestible brand of entertainment with a hypercritical audience that keeps receipts on every pop star.

🤓 I found the following review interesting: Compared with Prince's, Justin Timberlake's halftime show was a wimpy joke 6 February 2018 : https://www.usatoday.com/.../307243002 Considering Sunday's Super Bowl was hosted in Minneapolis, not paying tribute to Prince during the halftime show would’ve been sacrilege. ust Minneapolis’ own king of pop, he also gave the Super Bowl its best-ever halftime show performance in 2007. Yet, it’s unlikely that Prince and his deservedly-large ego would've been satisfied with the treatment he received: a tribute from Justin Timberlake, an artist with whom Prince had a historically fraught relationship, during a show that fell woefully short of The Purple One's legendary 2007 set. There’s a reason why, when rumors spread last week that a hologram version of Prince would join Timberlake on-stage, that the late singer’s fans rioted. Timberlake had a history of mocking Prince in public, from taking a dig at the 5’2’’ singer’s height at the 2007 Golden Globes to dedicating an entire verse to dissing Prince on his song Give It To Me later that year. read more at link provided: ¤ last paragraph excerpt:
Prince devotees can take solace in the fact that their idol’s 2007 halftime show eclipses Timberlake’s in every way.

Because the truth hurts and it certainly hurt JT because if the video hadn't existed; him and his peeps could have sworn up and down--lying-- that it didn't happen.

OK humor aside (the vibrator comment was in pure fun), you made a claim that JT wrote a song called "Satan Is My Master", then you blow it off with some random comment from a critic (the same critics that Prince fans otherwise dismiss based on Prince's words, but it seems to be perfectly fine right now) saying "it's the worst ever".

The satan song comment is simply untrue. It was never true. Where is this song? Where does it exist? There are random blurbs on lyric sites, but zero links to the song. You have to admit that it is likely a lie. If you spread a lie, you're no better than just another liar passing an untruth along. You might not like the record - that's fine, to each his own - but let's not throw out untruths just to support a point of view on one artist's record. I believe you're above that. I've seen you comment, and I know you're above that sort of thing.

"The worst ever" is untrue as well. Not all the critics are saying "it's the worst ever". But "critics are all saying" is just untrue. It's certainly gotten mixed reviews, some favor it some don't. But not everyone loved ATWIAD or Parade either. But I bet anyone here would defend those to the hilt. Why compare those two albums? Because it's all relative. I love the record. I think 20/20 was, by far, his most prolific and varied solid work. FutureSex/LoveSounds would follow second to that. But MOTW trumps Justified by a long shot. My opinion.

By the way, everyone needs a vibrator. lol lol

Why am I insane? Insane, because I care about Prince's legacy? Insane, because he didn't want someone singing along with him with his image up on a screen? Insane, because Prince was a JW; God-loving Man and doing those types of things are considered demonic and wrong?!

.

Oh, I'm insane alright. You know damn well that Prince would NEVER do this to another artist! JTs tribute to Prince was demonic. Read up on occult symbolism....it was all there in the SB halftime show. They were mocking his death, but people are too ignorant to see what they were doing in front of the masses! Read up on ancient roman occult practices -- this is the type of shit they do! Laugh all you want......like I really give a rats ass what you think!

.

Prince would not be cool with any of this, and if you think for one second that he would.......you never really knew the type of man Prince was!

JT is probably worried it will hurt his record sales now. He probably doesn't want to hurt his chances at gaining new fans. Well, the fact that they took the footage down just speaks in volumes.

.

Even if Prince was there that night to accept his award for "Happy Feet", and even if Prince thought that Justin's cute little joke was funny -- it's still not funny. I mean, show some respect. JT didn't know Prince well enough to be cracking jokes like that. I would never, in a million years do that to Prince or anyone for that matter. Maybe he thought it was cute at the time, and later regretted it. I dunno.

There's no way what we saw Sunday night had been planned and rehearsed the entire time they had been planning and rehearsing for the event. It clearly showed, that a very last minute change occured, throwing the whole thing off, even though they tried really hard to make it appear otherwise. I totally think they were going to use a hologram (Computer generated 3D performer) and not just a projected footage on a sheet.

Everybody needs a vibrator? I dunno about that one. But, it's all good. lol

.

I'm just saying, in JTs video "Filthy", there is a robot having sexual intercourse with a human. I don't know what type of message JT is trying to put out there. Is he saying that one day we will be having sex with robots or we will not be human anymore? I don't think a vibrator even comes close to being a robot, btw. lol

.

Allow me to rephrase my comment about the critics. Not all are saying "Man of the woods" is a bad album, but many are. I guess people aren't feeling that whole country-hunting-vibe. I think it's nice that JT is going back to his roots of his homeland, Tennessee. I don't hate JT, I really don't. What I was upset the most was the half-ass tribute he did for Prince.

.

I didn't mean to speak untruths and I will correct myself when I misspeak. I think "Satan is my Master" was a song written by Ben Folds, and JT put it on one of his albums, but it wasn't his original song. The song was meant to be a joke, but really -- why put that on your album at all? I don't get this all "hail satan" bullshit -- are they trying to be funny or cute? It's not cute.

.

If you go on YT and look up "Filty" backmasking, you will see the video that is in reverse, and sounds demonic. It might be all a bunch of malarkey, but it is creepy.

.

I would not say all of Prince's albums were great, because they weren't. Even Prince had songs that he never wanted to play again.

.

I think you are 100% correct. I think they ditched the hologram at the last minute. Did they really think they could pull the wool over our eyes? But here's the real kicker........his image up on the screen, with JT singing along......they basically did it anyhow, and went against Prince's wishes!

.

From what I read, Universal has control over Prince's images, so I don't think his family/estate had any say in the matter.

.

And, I also think that Sheila E. just gave us a shout-out about the hologram, to make us feel better.

.

They were trying us..... mad

You're right. I don't know what kind of man Prince was. I met him once and barely said 10 words to him. From what I could gather he seemed like a genuinely nice, funny guy but I'm basing that off of a 60 second meeting with him. I never truly knew him.

Maybe he would have liked the tribute or maybe he wouldn't. Or maybe he just wouldn't have given it a second thought, which I think is most likely.

I didn't mean to speak untruths and I will correct myself when I misspeak. I think "Satan is my Master" was a song written by Ben Folds, and JT put it on one of his albums, but it wasn't his original song. The song was meant to be a joke, but really -- why put that on your album at all? I don't get this all "hail satan" bullshit -- are they trying to be funny or cute? It's not cute.

That song was never on a Justin Timberlake record.

Okay, so who wrote it and where did it come from?

Thanks for the backhanded comment. rolleyes

Why am I insane? Insane, because I care about Prince's legacy? Insane, because he didn't want someone singing along with him with his image up on a screen? Insane, because Prince was a JW; God-loving Man and doing those types of things are considered demonic and wrong?!

.

Oh, I'm insane alright. You know damn well that Prince would NEVER do this to another artist! JTs tribute to Prince was demonic. Read up on occult symbolism....it was all there in the SB halftime show. They were mocking his death, but people are too ignorant to see what they were doing in front of the masses! Read up on ancient roman occult practices -- this is the type of shit they do! Laugh all you want......like I really give a rats ass what you think!

.

Prince would not be cool with any of this, and if you think for one second that he would.......you never really knew the type of man Prince was!

"why am I insane?" Then talks about demonic and ancient roman occult practices... You're right. I don't know what kind of man Prince was. I met him once and barely said 10 words to him. From what I could gather he seemed like a genuinely nice, funny guy but I'm basing that off of a 60 second meeting with him. I never truly knew him. Maybe he would have liked the tribute or maybe he wouldn't. Or maybe he just wouldn't have given it a second thought, which I think is most likely.

.

What JT did was something that Prince would never do! He didn't want ANYONE projecting his image on-stage and singing along with his vocal track. He thought it was demonic. End of story.

It's a Ben Folds song, and it's a random live cut. Timberlake's name is nowhere near it anywhere except on lyric sites that all copy each other. Ben writes his own music, he certainly doesn't need a random JT song like that. Ben has humor in his music, and this was a live cut with him trying to be funny. Not necessarily my choice of humor, but the truth is JT has nothing to do with it.

From Billboard

Contrary to a report that surfaced after the big game, Whitehouse says there was never a plan to use a hologram to beam the late rock icon into the stadium for the "I Would Die 4 U" virtual duet. "There was no hologram," he says. "It’s impossible to create a hologram in a 360˚ stadium environment. We never contemplated the idea. We were, however, lucky enough that Bruce [Rogers] and Bob [Barnhart] from the halftime team were the creatives who worked with Prince to make the famous silhouette moment happen in Prince’s own [2007] halftime performance."

As the planning started months ago, Timberlake asked for that iconic image as part of the show, and Whitehouse says the process leading up to the big day was firmly focused on honoring and being respectful of one of the greatest halftime performances of all time.

"To make it happen, the halftime team, JT team and Prince estate all worked together to design and facilitate this beautiful tribute," he says. "When it finally came together back in January, we knew that it would be one of the standout moments in the show. The biggest technical challenge was balancing airflow and merging multiple projectors, a silk with projection that large and bright in any stadium is tough, each night at rehearsals it would improve, and finally on game day Bruce and his team nailed it!"

He also pulled back the curtain on one of the most stirring images: what appeared to be most of downtown Minneapolis, bathed in purple lights, with Prince's famous glyph wrapping around the stadium.



"This came from one of those JT genius ideas," he says. "He said to us 'wouldn’t it be amazing if we could light up all of Minneapolis Purple' as we discussed ideas of how to pay a fitting tribute to the city and it evolved from there. As for how we did it, all I'm going to say is it took an amazing amount of effort and co-ordination over many months by Ricky, Hamish, [director] Bruce and Bob in bringing this idea to life and I think they pulled it off in a way far better than we had ever imagined."

Thanks for sharing this it is nice to read their plans but unfortunately the actual execution left much to be desired. It sounds as if there was hardwork and planning. Sometimes Providence takes over. I read they are frustrated after all their hard work the reviews have been mostly negative.

well in conclusion from my pov, seems it be would less of a blatant disrespect and or insult if the person whose likeness was electronically/visually automated either as a holographic image or a video screen for entertainment purposes, the act should be sanctioned by the person before their death.
like for example,
here in California before obtaining ones driver license there is a questionnaire stating that if upon death their body parts can be used/donald surgically to save a life of a living person.
👀
so imo Prince was totally dissed in that he had already expressed his feeling on the subject of being screened and used in a vocal duet after death.
justin knew this and totally ignored Prince's feelings on this issue.

Filthy is one of my least favourite songs on the album and is not indicative of the type of music which features throughout. Bad choice for a lead single, I think. Montana would have been the better choice.

http://www.tmz.com/2018/02/05/prince-heres-why-fans-are-pissed-at-justin-timberlake
Forget the hologram drama, Prince fans are still VERY upset over Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime performance ... and it all stems from an interview the Purple One did in 1998.

At the time, Prince sat down with Guitar World Magazine and was asked about the trend of live musicians using technology to duet with someone who had passed away ... think Natalie Cole's version of "Unforgettable" she did with her dad.

Here's what Prince said at the time ...

Guitar World: "With digital editing, it is now possible to create a situation where you could jam with any artist from the past. Would you ever consider doing something like that?"

Prince: "Certainly not. That's the most demonic thing imaginable. Everything is as it is, and it should be. If I was meant to jam with Duke Ellington, we would have lived in the same age. That whole virtual reality thing... it really is demonic. And I am not a demon. Also, what they did with that Beatles song ["Free As a Bird"], manipulating John Lennon's voice to have him singing from across the grave... that'll never happen to me. To prevent that kind of thing from happening is another reason why I want artistic control."

So, when Timberlake used Prince's voice and image to create a duet -- seems like b]JT did exactly what Prince didn't want.
🤓
virtual reality duets was Prince's angst. Prince didn't want it.

Bottom line is, if it was what Prince wanted or didn't want, then it should be honored and respected. No if's and's or but's about it. How someone can label themselves as a Prince fan and be fine with this low-ball move is just beyond me. confused

If y'all got to be a Prince purist then you ought to quit swearing right now because Prince didn't like that either... Oh and since he was a very spiritual man, perhaps you could endorse some of that 'forgiveness' too...

Peeps need to stop taking her word as gospel. She and Prince made beautiful music together but they stopped speaking a few years prior to his death so she knew Prince but not what was going on the last years. All her talk about him now abour his issues and thoughts I do not take much from due to that rift.Those who really were in Prince's spehere then have been silent.

I am not getting why it is about Justin. It is not. I am simple. I just am saying, sure people will do covers of Prince songs and that is expected but be mindful of Prince as a man. That is all. Justin as a human being will have to and is living with whatever decisions he made. He is no saint and publicly put negativity into the universe. That he will live with- we all have choices and he made his. This is however is about an Icon who transitioned.How he is image is being used when he clearly said NO to using his voice for duets with anyone - how this became about Justin being sinner or saint . . . boggles.

.

Just do not use Prince's voice for duets with anyone. Simple. Do all the covers you want ON YOUR OWN talent- sing it yourself.

This is factual.

I have heard a first-hand account from someone who worked on the Purple Rain tour who was fired because he made an ill-judged comment about Prince's height, and Prince flew into a rage and had him fired.

There is absolutely no way that he thought was Justin did was amusing in any way. It was disrespectful as fuck.

There were some posts saying the critiques are giving his album bad reviews. Well somebody is digging "Filthy" off the album with 45,883,889 views on youtube already. hhhmmm smile

Filthy is one of my least favourite songs on the album and is not indicative of the type of music which features throughout. Bad choice for a lead single, I think. Montana would have been the better choice.

I haven't heard Montana yet. But I think many of artist would love 45,883,889 people looking at their stuff for only about 6 weeks! razz biggrin

I read several articles about the Hologram fiasco, and I really don't know what to think. It does not appear they are being truthful. The fact that Justin or the SB are not disputing the allegations of a planned hologram, makes them look very suspicious, imo.

.

http://www.vulture.com/20...ogram.html

.

https://www.billboard.com...projection

.

If you believe “Page Six,” the hologram was very real, and scrapped at the eleventh hour. “He was 100 percent ready to use the hologram but nixed it due to backlash from social media and Prince fans. That’s why he had that sheet up like in your mama’s backyard,” an insider told the gossip site. If you instead believe “a source close to Timberlake,” also quoted by “Page Six,” the hologram never existed: “There’s no way Justin would ever disrespect Prince’s legacy. He didn’t change his performance.” Since TMZ abandoned their original report, that leaves only “Page Six” still standing by the rumor.

.

Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson tells TMZ that she and the rest of her siblings, who are heirs to Prince’s fortune, knew Justin planned to sing “I Would Die 4 U,” but that the projection was a surprise — one that she approves of. She makes no mention of the hologram. In a statement to “Page Six,” Prince’s estate, which is overseen by a bank, said it gave Timberlake permission to license the clips used in his performance, calling it a “beautiful hometown tribute.” The estate’s statement does not acknowledge the rumored hologram either. A Twitter account said to represent one of Prince’s half-brothers, Omarr Baker, tweeted that the family did not authorize use of a hologram and that there were never any plans to include one in the performance. Meanwhile, Alki David, the founder of Hologram USA (famous for its Tupac hologram), says his company had nothing to do with a Prince hologram for the Super Bowl.

One day people will feel remorseful and looking back they'll regret not having appreciated JT whilst he was still around and they'll suddenly start praising how good his music actually is and what a nice guy he truly was... They will start wishing they'd seen him perform live more or at least once (while they could) and any attempt to pay homage to the 'Sexy Back' majesty will be deemed unworthy.

I will not feel bad for anyone who blatantly makes fun of another person's physical attributes. You cannot change your height. It reminds me of bullies. I am not being argumentative but JT is getting dragged now for good reason.This will not be forgotten. It is his karma.

Sometimes I am 100% an accelerationist on this issue, I want 20 holograms all doing Prince tours all over the world, nonstop listening parties at paisley park, toothpastes and stickers and endless new remixes and duets of prince's work with new artists because I want people to realise that all that "respectful" handling of his legacy is nonsense; the man was about living in the present not about reverence of the past. No posthumous release will be ok, ever, so we may as well just get the absolute worst of it all out until we collectively cop on.

But I realise i'm in a minority here lol

S o Justin publicly ridiculed Prince's height on national TV . He has not changed. He came out singing Rock Your Body . . . that was not a mistake. Many knew his history at the Superbowl and even those who are not popculture followers remembered and found it in bad taste. He was wrong . He showed me his essence is as it is. People do and can change but it appears JT sees no need to change and in 2018 people are openly questioning his motives. It is not a crime. I am surprised by those who act as if JT should again get a pass. I am glad this round he is not getting that pass.

Yea, Sheila was defending JT and saying he's a talented musician. rolleyes

.

You know damn well that Prince would never want JT to do a tribute of him!

.

JT needs to refrain from doing tributes for anyone, ever again; it's obviously not his forte! lol

... from the haters. wink A lot of people enjoyed the Super Bowl halftime show and have no idea about any of the drama surrounding the Prince portion. I know the because I watched it with a whole herd of 'em who didn't understand when I said a lot of Prince fans would hate it.

I'm not a hater of JT, but I'm not gonna buy his album either, LOL lol

I just think his tribute to Prince was piss-poor, and against Prince's wishes. lol

And unfounded and juvenile.

Prince fans act like they're the gatekeepers for all things Prince. They know what's better for Prince's legacy, more than his family or those with a hands-on privilege. Fan will get every Prince and prince tattoo, cover every Prince song on YouTube, perform it in their cover bands and put that on YouTube as well, use his image and other copyrighted material for shittastic photoshop memes and "tributes", sing along to his music on Instagram and in the car, post GIFs of Prince, and more.

Yet when an established musician who has the chops to obviously sell records, put on great tours, write hit songs and put out quality music drops a skrim of fabric from the garment district to project 30 seconds of one song and sing a few words along with it to, from his heart, pay tribute to a city and the artist they lose their fucking minds.

I mean, I'm really surprised no one has gone after Jessica Biel, or his child Silas Randall Timberlake. I think his parents are alive but divorced - maybe the naysayers could drag them, too. If fans drag former girlfriends of Prince, I'm sure the Timberlakes are wide open.

falloff My thoughts on JT only go as far as his lil' bitch type pettiness, where it has involved Prince and his lil' bitch type spinelessness, when it came to Janet Jackson and Nipplegate. Beyond that, I truly give no fucks about him, one way or another. shrug

As for Prince fans acting like we're the gatekeepers of all things Prince...well...we know that we're not. But since those with financial motivations and professional aspirations are targeting US for their goals...we should and for the most part will say so...when we notice something isn't right about it.

Well as y'all know, I am a massive Prince fan but above all, I am a music lover, and I can proudly say that I am a big Justin Timberlake fan as well (yes, it is possible).

Similarly to Prince's, I think the music Justin produces is of a great quality and has that feel-good factor without giving the impression that he has done a rushed job, contrary to many other current pop artists. I am sure Prince would have appreciated the efforts Justin has put towards the tribute to honour him, and the fact that he incorporated a fantastic choreography. As for his vocals not being 'on top' that night, it seems that this was due to a technical glitch and does not reflect his usually impeccable singing.

As for his new album, 'Man Of The Woods' (I love the theme), I don't understand how he has gotten so many bad critics reviews when the sales are actually already soaring and after listening to it, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it actually is.

Perhaps all the haters could have a listen too, so long as they are not too busy hatin' of course. wink

It's not evil. That's hysteric talk, buzzwords. I ask again, did you have a problem when Natalie Cole propped up her long-dead daddy to sing "Unforgettable" with him? There are tons of duets albums out there w/ dead artists - on one says boo about it. But my God don't touch Prince! It's not against some random verse in the bible; that "demonic" bullshit was Prince's opinion, not a fact.

So people don't understand respect because they disagree with you? That seems small minded. I could ask "how could you not support someone paying tribute to Prince??? Sheila did it. She sang his songs and sampled a few bits, and she did it when the body was barely cold." There is a thing called perspective. One can challenge the tribute, but when one delves into ad hominem, the debates become invalid and without merit any longer.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

.

Who's talking about Natalie Cole? We are talking about Prince here.

.

You keep dismissing the fact that Prince specifically said he didn't want anyone singing duets with him when he was gone, or using his image on screen. He didn't like it and said it was demonic. He never did that to any late artist.

.

Why are you bringing Sheila into this to prove your inaccurate claims? Sheila would NEVER do what JT did in that halftime-tribute to Prince!! Never!! She's not doing that to him -- does she sing along with him with his image up on screen? NOPE.

.

These debates are only invalid to you because you think your opinion is always the right one, and everyone else's should be dismissed.

I'm making a point. If it's wrong for one, then it should be wrong for everyone. If God is the same all the time, then so are demons. If something is demonic about that w/ Prince, then it is with everyone. Did everyone start waving bibles and "demonic" declarations when Cole and a gazillion others did the same thing? He also specifically addressed how they mimicked Lennon's voice on a Beatles song. That is not what he wanted.

The "demonic" thing was just Prince in the midst of his JW turnover. Prince fans know 1/3 of what he said was in the moment and not a lifelong belief. It was his whim at the time. He also said the internet was over, but y'all still here.

The tribute was not demonic. He got the vocal stems from someone in the upper echelon of control, so y'all should complain to them. And stop posting GIFs, stop singing along w/ him on Instagram & Facebook etc. Fans should practice what they preach, or STFU. That's all.

So, you don't believe in respecting someone's wishes. Okay, I get it now.

.

Again, you are trying to twist the argument and generalize the subject at-hand. Natalie Cole wasn't Prince......her tribute to her late Father had nothing to do with Prince or his wishes after death.

.

JT's tribute to Prince WAS demonic. In fact, the entire SB halftime show was demonic.

.

Who's singing along with JT? What are you talking about? eek confused

.

Now, go back to The Woods; I'm sure Justin is waiting there for you.

Oh please! By Org standards, it's rather mild and tepid.  razz

IKR?  lol

Have you seen the comments all over social media.....this place is a walk in the park in comparison!!  lol


 


 


Some Prince groups on Facebook are eek. I’m not really a JT fan and his halftime performance didn’t really do anything for me. At the same time I have little time for those “fams” who think they’re the only proper gatekeepers for his legacy, they’re the only ones who know what he would/wouldn’t approve of (often times it just seems to be whatever they would approve of). I just don’t think it’s a good look for Prince fans to be so hyper sensitive to everything. Sometimes “fams” just need to chill. lol

True; however, I don't think people are being "hyper-sensitive" when it comes to respecting a Man's wishes. I don't see the argument. Prince said what he said -- why go against his wishes? This does not compute with me......How can it be wrong to respect someone's wishes? It means that you love them........ yes

.

If Prince fans just sat back and said nothing, then they would be labeled as not caring/not giving a fuck. It's a no-win situation.

.

Prince told Sheila if she is still here, not to ever let anyone do a hologram of him. I'm sure he meant it when he said it.

J-LO, she performed Gett Off - Darling Nikki - Sexy Motherf*cker- When Doves Cry & Let's Go Crazy (Medley)

I was/ am kind of impressed... eek cool cool cool cool

Was this the yesterday or sometime before the Super Bowl?

I don't know what that means. And I said what I meant and meant what I said. I don't know what a gay hollywood or a "gay hollywood" marriage is. I mean, if you sit and think that's a thing in 2018, there is your reward.

..theyre both gay and marry each other to keep straights away from each other

Usually when a person decides to get married, whether they are gay or straight, it's because they want to be monogamous (only be with one person), right? lol

And unfounded and juvenile.

Prince fans act like they're the gatekeepers for all things Prince. They know what's better for Prince's legacy, more than his family or those with a hands-on privilege. Fan will get every Prince and prince tattoo, cover every Prince song on YouTube, perform it in their cover bands and put that on YouTube as well, use his image and other copyrighted material for shittastic photoshop memes and "tributes", sing along to his music on Instagram and in the car, post GIFs of Prince, and more.

Yet when an established musician who has the chops to obviously sell records, put on great tours, write hit songs and put out quality music drops a skrim of fabric from the garment district to project 30 seconds of one song and sing a few words along with it to, from his heart, pay tribute to a city and the artist they lose their fucking minds.

I mean, I'm really surprised no one has gone after Jessica Biel, or his child Silas Randall Timberlake. I think his parents are alive but divorced - maybe the naysayers could drag them, too. If fans drag former girlfriends of Prince, I'm sure the Timberlakes are wide open.

lol R U kidding? Juvenile is taking a potshot at a legend in one of your songs because of a statement said legend made when casually asked a question by a reporter that referenced another one of your songs. Juvenile is making fun of said legend's height when you are accepting an award for him in his absence. His hubris aside, this clown already left a bad taste in my mouth after the way he treated Janet, but then to say those things about Prince and then go on Fallon after his (poorly recieved) SB show and gush about Prince when we know what happened is pretty rich. The Paisley Park party he threw was something Prince would NEVER have approved of.
