Man, I Wish I Was Talented And Famous


Prince didn't show up for his Super Bowl concert, but Channel 8 got a hold of the contract. (pdf file)

No one knows what happened, but it sounds like Prince questioned whether the promoter could actually pay him, demanded the money up front, and, when he didn't get it, refused to go on.

And Prince would have been worth every penny. That amount is right in line with $25 bbq sandwiches.

I have it from good authority that the promoter could not afford the 15 thousand for the artist merchandise so Prince backed out at the last minute.

To heck with being famous. I'd rather be able to treat myself to a trip to Starbucks on Saturday morning, or go shopping, or out to eat, or wipe my nose on my sleeve, or hang out with a few friends, or wear a shirt untucked, or an old ragged ballcap, and NOT have the picture or video of any of that appear online, in print, or on TV.

If he had not been paid in advance, acording to th econtract, he had the right to cancel. Read it--it's there. Should have been paid in full by Feb 3rd.
