I am fan of Prince music since 1988. I have a crazy amount of CDs and DVDs of him. And I have spent a crazy amount of time on him during the last years.
In 2009 Prince will release three new albums, two under his own name and one for his last protegee, Bria Valente. Initial hints from samples and from insiders suggest that at least one of them, Lotus flow3r, is very strong. And last Sunday Prince made a post-Oscars party which is headlining at many sites.
The expectable thing would be that I was, at this time, all hyped, overexcited and anxiously waiting for the release of new music, while very happy after reading news of a show with plenty of new, good songs.
But what happens is this: Prince did a show with loads of versions and very few new songs; I am not hyped at all, and I am not scanning the net for news on either the Oscar bash or new music; and my initial, huge interest on the new albums has almost completely vanished.
This is me, someone who calls himself a hardcore fan of Prince music. I wonder how others with lower interest might feel by now.
