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

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.

This might be the one music video that you can watch and whole-heartedly say, “I dance better than that” and while Aziz’s’s’s Master of None co-host Eric Wareheim is great with his endearing first grade tap dance choreography, doesn’t this kinda make you miss Tom and Jean-Ralphio?

Katie Toupin is leaving Houndmouth?!

I think I speak for all Houndmouth fans, when I say

“NO.”

What happened?! Where is she going? What will they do? Who could possibly replace that perfectly syrupy-sweet sound?

They are definitely being polite about the matter but you can feel the hurt behind the words which makes me think there might be more to the story.

What a drag. At least we’ll always have Little Neon Limelight

Nic Cage And Vince Neil Remake Fight Club With Sloppy Hugs And Face Whispers.

Source: SPIN

FIRST RULE OF FIGHT CLUB…YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT FIGHT CLUB, YOU WHISPER IT ON MY CHEEK WITH AN OPEN MOUTH WHILE DOING A RESTRAINED ARM HUG DANCE.

Vince Neil has never been big on chivalry as you probably learned listening to the Biggest Jerks In Music History so to the sad surprise of no one, he pulled a fan to the ground by her hair after she asked for a photo…or shall we say “former” fan given the circumstance?

Who is going to talk Vince down from his wee stoop of rage? Why none other than Nic Cage!

Read all of the messy details here although if you too were hoping for a homoerotic sloppy hug fight dance club, the details might ruin it.
