I never understood why Prince did Idol. Was it his idea?

Prince did "American Idol" for the same reason that most older musicians did/do it. He did it to sell records.


Well there's lots of things he could have done to sell records that he never did so...

He actually worked pretty hard to sell his records from Emancipation forward - that very awkward Oprah interview, the stint with Mel B and release of the Beautiful Strange DVD, the strange appearance on TRL and his appearance on Larry King when he was promoting RI2TJF, etc. When you aren’t represented by a label and have records to promote you’re going to do whatever it takes to market them. He did tons of press in the late 90’s and early 2000’s - morning shows, MTV, VH1, etc.

My instinct is to say no, but then again if you’d ask me in the early 90s whether Prince would ever do the effing Muppet Show I would have laughed you out of the room. lol

I know what you mean… but I preferred Prince when he was edgy, subversive and slightly dangerous. That marked the end of an era for me – I found it a bit depresssing to be honest.

Yes, but on his terms. It would have been a classic episode.

But, spending a half hour doing karaoke to his songs is a big leap from doing a quick pose for a selfie biggrin ^ Also, while he did do AI, it was all on his terms - he refused to speak to anyone, and would not allow Ryan Seacrest to introduce him. He came out, performed with The Twinz, and then he walked out. Classic Prince smile

No doubt. I think Prince would have picked James up in “A Little Red Corvette”. It would have been great.
