lol the laundry and dishwasher story totally cracks me up! too funny but the review of his show? OUCH! WAY TO HARSH! The reporter needs to give the man a break! I mean Prince was his friend. Jesse even stated not long after his passing that he and Prince were still close til the end. I'm sure the impact of being there and knowing that his friend is no longer here is taking it's toll on him emotionally...The reporter needs to remember that those that worked with Prince and are in Minneapolis this week are probably a basket of emotions. I'm sure Jesse is no different. sad hug to Jesse, we love ya man!

The media does not care to them Prince is good for clicks and revenue generation. These people were his friends going back 30 and 40 years and so many in the media are clueless.

Here is the comment I left on that dude's article... WOW! Dude you way harsh! Give Jesse a break man! You gotta remember Prince was a dear friend of Jesse's and I'm sure those that knew him are all a basket of emotions on the inside this week! They are doing the best they can with their gift of music. I don't' think any of us fans would fault him or anyone for a "lack luster" show but instead we would consider the circumstances and show our love, support and understanding. It's gotta be one of the toughest moments of their lives to be in Minneapolis knowing their friend is no longer here on earth with them. Every artist has an off night but especially considering the circumstances I think this was a bit to far. Granted I know you are just stating your own opinion of the show and you have that right but it really breaks my heart to see this kind of review. Sending hugs from Nashville to Jesse and all those that knew Prince.

Good for you! Posting comments on facebook and Prince Fora does not make change. When MJ passed we responded to all media articles -- good and bad! I have been writing privately to the media. I wrote to Chris Moon and a Chicago Tribune journalist, and I intend to write to Owen Husney, and Neal Karlen too. When they read from a person who is reasonable, it makes a big difference. Thank you!
