If We Could Get More Prince-tastic Stories Like This For The Rest Of Time That’d Be Great. Plz/Thx.

Will.i.am not only shares a hilarious story about the career-long rivalry between Prince and Michael Jackson, he actually does fantastic impressions. Although if you ask Prince there was never a competition but I guess you can’t ask him now 🙁 So go back and watch this interview from 1997 when he explains why he wouldn’t duet with MJ on “Bad”.

Tracy Morgan also has a story that Prince-tastic…and a lesson Prince taught Tracy that will change the way you look at tater tots.

and if you missed, D’Angelo performed “Sometimes It Snows In April” with Prince cover band, Princess. It might be a little out of tune but there is no question the love is all there.

Seriously story time hasn’t been this good since Bastian got stuck in the attic…

This Boy Band Is Getting A Biopic And One Fan Is Uncomfortably Excited.

Bobby Brown new Edition

When I met Bobby Brown, I was overwhelmed with songs and super bad dance moves original choreography that my sister and I made up…Not kidding, and I threw out the deep cuts from their debut album. “Delicious”, “My Secret”, “Lost In Love”…He HAD to be impressed because I remembered the lyrics better than him…or maybe he didn’t engage out of fear…Regardless it was MAGIC!

That is why I am thrilled to confirm the BET biopic is a GO. It appears the cast is set and all the guys, Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph T and Johnny Gill are involved in the production. Now we just have to cross our eyes/fingers that they do their story justice and patiently wait until 2017 Click here to read more

Keep Listening to 80s Hits for updates and if you hear of them needing any backup dancers, holler.

Screw Mars, We Need A Time-Machine For This Prince Party.

After the passing of Prince, it is quite obvious that time machines are far more important than all this “Get the hell off earth before it blows, Mission to Mars” crap. As I have said numerous times, WE WILL ONLY USE IT FOR MUSIC.

Just imagine what it will be like when we teleport to this party.

Then we can take a short trip to see this guitar solo at The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. We can even time at 3:25 so we’re not gone long.

BTW YOU KNOW PRINCE ALREADY HAD A TIME MACHINE AND HE’S PROBABLY AT A JIMI HENDRIX/JAMES BROWN SHOW RIGHT NOW SO DON’T TELL ME IT ISN’T POSSIBLE.

Coachella Hit By Massive Sick Burn. All Attendees Asked To Grab Aloe And Take Long Hard Look In The Mirror.

David Spade’s latest Coachella-shaming video might be the funniest thing he’s starred in since Benchwarmers. In it, he exposes the music festival’s ugly truth with one benefit a VIP wristband can’t buy, scathing candor.

But hey Coachellans, if it’s any consolation, you’re still really good looking and you don’t have to worry about a job until you’re like what, 35?? So who cares what Spade thinks.

Prince Was An Eccentric Pain In The Ass & These Hilarious Legends Made Us Love Him For It Even More.

Did you ever go through a phase when you didn’t like Prince? I did.

Which sucked because I remember the first time I heard “Let’s Go Crazy” and how I couldn’t take my eyes off this little man doing the splits in stilettos…but as time went on I started hearing more stories and I loathed his blatant narcissism. How dare he tell people they couldn’t look him in the eye. Do you remember that? If not, read this.

However thanks to the following hilarious stories, I started to appreciate that little purple pain in the ass, his outlandish idiosyncrasies and his music…. all over again.

Obligatory Charlie Murphy/Dave Chappelle “True Hollywood Stories” reenactment.

Update! Jimmy Fallon’s Ping Pong Challenge!

Finding Nemo and Prince will always be synonymous to Questlove.

Kevin Smith and his need for a Prince translator.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to celebrate his eccentric life by listening to Prince DNA and crying purple tears.

Willie Nelson/Lots Of Weed Saved Lil Wayne From An Award Show Disaster.

Source: Rollingstone

Most of us would show up…what, 5 hours before an award show performance? Make sure you know the script, the song, where to stand, etc. with enough time left over to stress/freak out properly.

Not Lil Wayne.

He shows up 5 min before the curtain goes up, doesn’t know the song or how to play the guitar.

Enter Green God/Marijuana Yoda, Wille Nelson….who calmly shows him how to play two chords and it’s showtime.

Check out the video above because the story gets even better but it is not for the meek… and as much as some of us wish we could share a peace pipe with Willie, we are self-aware enough to know that we would turn into Will Ferrell/Old School with a tranq dart to the neck and never forgive ourselves.

That being said let’s listen to Lil Wayne and dream about the possibilities

Waffle House Jukebox Finally Recognized As Music Award Equal Thanks To Stephen Colbert & Sturgill Simpson.

If you’re an up and coming artist, the Stephen Colbert/Sturgill Simpson collab “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Knuckleheads” will make you reevaluate any/all priorities.

Sure you can win a Grammy or a Moonman, but is your song good enough for a Waffle House jukebox?

Btw if you’re down with alt country, I highly recommend Sturgill Simpson’s new album, A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.

Sturgill wrote it for his son and you don’t have to be Sturgill’s son to fall in love it…It’s a tasty combo platter of country and soul, smothered in wisdom and a Nirvana cover to boot. Check it out and let me know what you think.

“Call To Arms” is an instant fav! Dare you not to…

“NOW PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR…..CAMEOCHELLA!”

If you aren’t at Coachella either, it appears we are missing a continuation of Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour the euphoria of realizing the artist you are “WOOO”ing for is going to bring out a massive surprise guest only to make you WOOO even louder!

You are also missing fashion styles from a bag of clothes you donated to Goodwill sometime between 2001-05.

NWA/SNOOP.

KESHA/ZEDD.

CALVIN HARRIS/RIHANNA.

ASAP ROCKY/KANYE WEST. Who learned a very valuable lesson on why you can’t be late for your set.

As you may have heard on Music News, just because we’re not at Coachella doesn’t mean we can’t play along!

How to play “Cameochella”:

  • Shout “NOW PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR….”
  • Spontaneously play an artist of your choice preferably at inopportune moments ie: business meeting, study group, wake, quiet carpool, etc.
  • Bonus points for jumping on someone’s shoulders and or pretending to crowdsurf.

Ps – This game is trademarked by me so don’t even think about it.
