Hmm...I wonder if Van knew exactly what this was? If he did I question why he would be a part of it. I know I'm not watching it. hmph!

From what I saw of the ad, Van Jones' words were part of a previously-recorded interview/video.
Van's in a tough spot because CNN/HLN can use anything they've recorded of him, in any way they want.

I can't imagine ANYTHING "new" in this tabloid mess. But I'll watch, just so I can complain.

--If they were not honest with Andre they were probaly dishonest with everyone. I hate this type of stuff because many of the associated have said they have been misquoted and will not speak to the media at all. It makes it easy for the media to control the narrative.

Good point about Van. He might not have known anything about this.

.....and frankly, I don't think the star of some fake SyFy TV movie titled "Stonehenge Apocalypse" gives this any credibility, either.

Lumping P in with OJ and the Memendez Brothers? Ugh.

There is a contradiction ...were they really not aware it was going to be a tv show about Princes death? I agree when she said his death should not be a tv show and also agree it was not his time and should not have happened.
Was Van involved in this one too? If so why is he re telling media lies. This is not keeping Princes legacy alive, this is just more drama not needed.

Pretty sure Van was...he's always up on CNN/HLN, ALWAYS. He even has a show(can't remember the name of it offhand). As far as the Prince "documentary"show airing on 2/10, I will be watching regardless, but can't fathom what more can be uncovered in reference to P's death, being that here on the org we have went in circles for 10 months and still don't have THE TRUTH! Sure we know the what the ME report states, but we want THE TRUTH!

I am not going to get into details here but the very same thing happened to a member of my family... That's typical old school journalism for you.

I am not sure why she would lie about this and to be honest Andre has not done a lot of media and when he has done media he has always been respectful. I believe he knows s lot about Prince's early years and he has kept most it to himself.

I'm not saying she "lied"...iirc, she didn't state that she knew the title of the documentary one way or the other and was supposedly was floored, assuming it would be in regrds to P's legacy and not ultimately circling around his death, instead....which, in turn lead me to wonder if the title was revealed to her and Andre' or not.

I am sure they did not know it would be called the end. It is very morbid and they are throwing him in with O.J and Menedez brothers

Andre has always show the uttermost respect and I bet his comments in this will match that. Everything else is just channel hype.

Read it again. They thought it referred to his career.
And it may have started that way. Sometimes when things see sold, they get changed

This is like musical chairs around here.


Anyway. We'll see, maybe it won't be that bad simply based on the title.

It's near the bottom. Above that, she states that they never knew it was going to be "The End".
But it's clear that they knew about "How It Happened":
"may be naive of me but based on what Andre and I discussed with the people who asked him to take part in the “documentary” I must have thought “Prince, How it Happened” meant how the boy turned into the man, turned into the musical phenomenon, turned into the philanthropist, turned into the legend happened."

It looks like the CNN/HLN program will not be really that impactful. From this blog, the show leaves us with more questions than answers. Also, to Mrs. Anderson's comments, the show seems like it's 2 different documentaries and the program is trying hard to make a connection to his childhood and his death 37 years later. It appears Andre's comments were made about his life and not his death. Nothing inflamatory. Here is the link. https://tinyurl.com/h8sat8j

I'm still watching. I'm not getting it'll be a tabloid show, just that it'll be rehashed stuff with no new news. Which I guess that's okay since it may be in conjunction with the Grammy's and everything else that's going on. Just enough info for the casual observer.

It has nothing to do with it being inflammatory they just lied to get him on the show.
