The salient points
- Prince has variously been known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, The Artist or a stupid anchor/bugle symbol.
- His first big international hit was 'When Doves Cry'. In the video he does lots of manly things like riding a motorbike, walking around with his top off and staring at lakes.
- That single was taken from the album 'Purple Rain', to this day one of the best-selling albums of all-time.
- He's still regarded as one of the biggest icons in pop, although his last Number One was a very long time ago.
- Prince thinks the internet is completely over, and is quoted as saying: "The Internet's completely over."
- He closed his official website in 2010.
- He does believe in the Daily Mail though, giving them exclusive rights in the UK to distribute his 2010 album, '20Ten'.
- Well done Prince.
