How is that self-idolatry? No one is asking you to worship it.

Why?

This would cause people to delve into Prince's life to find stuff he did that they wouldn't approve of

That's your reason? Because he's a native son of Minneapolis. More than Christopher Columbus ever was.

This should happen. There would be more people interested in that statue and taking pictures of it/with it in 1 year than the entire time Chris has been hanging there.

So a giant mural is fine, but a sculpture in front of City Hall in the heart of Minneapolis is wrong? How is a statue of Prince now that he's passed self-idolatry (ie self-worship)? What about commemoration? What is wrong with that?

What does ZIP mean? I'm from germany, could it be possible that I can't sign the petition because of that?

So you dont know the difference between a mural and a permanent official statue placed at City Hall? Great.

Not really. Why don't you enlighten me? How is it not a tribute to a native son, just like a mural or any other piece of art?

You like Christopher Columbus statues better?

I, in my humble opinion, think that every Columbus statue should be replaced, since Columbus is not a hero. I mean, we don't have Hitler statues in germany so......

You really need me to tell you or you just want to argue your opinion because you can't be wrong on the internet? And miss me with the strawman argument that if I bring up that Prince was against such self idolatry of placing a statue of himself in city hall then I must be okay with a Columbus statue. A mural is less permanent and less official. And Dylan is also from there and just as critical an artist that seemingly deserves such recognition as well. But you wouldn't hear of EITHER of them even contemplating having such a gaudy tribute as a statue there. They were and are huge artists of merit but still way to humble for that and Prince was deep into religion where praising anyone other than Jesus etc was blasphemy to him. I think many of the issues reported her have to do with all of your desires rather than what Prince etc would want etc. y'all are just as bad as Warner Bros is purported to be. Geez.. some of his fans

Fine. Agree to disagree. You discredit my posts on every thread no matter what they are about. Please ignore them.

The woman who started the petition has a lot of good points IMO. Long shot that it would happen but mural, sculpture or painting are all tribute art. Doesn't make any difference how long they last. Christopher Columbus had his 15 minutes. Next. I live in New Orleans. I would be thrilled if they put a statue of Louis Armstrong or Mahalia Jackson on top of the needle where Robert E Lee was thankfully removed.

Yes that is my reason, a public statue, where people will pick him a part. Minneapolis or not.

If it is in a particular space, a musical area or maybe on Paisley Park, it would be cool.

You did not reply to me in above post #24? How silly. We disagree about the statue, fair enough.
