Prince rewards fellow artists with law suit

Prince, 'the artist formally known as', talentless midget, or what ever name he goes by these days, has slapped 50 recording artists with a law suit because they honoured his 50th birthday by covering his songs in a Prince tribute album.

The artists claim they never made any money from the recordings and therefore don't owe the pint sized star any royalties.

Putting aside for a moment the bad spirit in which this law suite has been filed (at fellow artists who respect his music and wanted to honour him), Shorty might have a point.

Although they may have performed the covers free of charge, any future sales gained as a result of the publicity of the album could be interpreted as making money from the tribute album.

Either way you look at it, I reckon Tiny's actions here are mean spirited, and any bad publicity he gets from it is well deserved.

The sequel to Purple Rain will be entitled: "A Purple, Albeit Dying, Star Makes Rain"

"...he [Prince] has said that... that only egotistical people take credit for everything they do."

Well! I guess that settles it!

Might as well just drop down the route of The Verve vs. Andrew Oldham/The Rollings Stones. Both are like a whimsical fight over a more whimsical song.
