The Purple One Is Officially an Old Man

Prince

It’s hard for us to admit but Prince is no longer a young, wild, bicurious entertainer with a knack for @ss-out jeans, hot women and six inch heels. He’s now an aging singer who needs a cane to get around, a diamond studded cane, but still a cane. Pop the top for more

The Purple One’s Jehovah’s Witness beliefs prevent him from accepting blood transfusions – making an alleged double hip replacement operation impossible

Sign o’ the times … Prince is allegedly refusing a hip replacement operation.

Will Prince be forced to choose between his faith and his health? Persistent hip problems are affecting the Purple One’s mobility, according to reports, and his religious beliefs are preventing surgery.

As a Jehovah’s Witness, Prince has allegedly refused blood transfusions – making a double hip replacement operation impossible.

“He’s in a lot of pain,” a source told the Hollywood Report’s Showbiz 411 blog this week. “[Prince] is popping pain killers and hoping it will all go away.”

Prince’s hip problems were first reported in 2005, and in 2007 and 2008 rumours emerged of “secret surgery”. But there is no sign that the singer has gone under the knife.

Bloggers have pointed to two recent appearances – at a Tony awards party and a bash for the 75th anniversary of the Apollo Theatre – where Prince came with a diamond-studded cane. The 51-year-old needed the stick “to keep him upright”, Showbiz 411 reported.

It should be noted, however, that Prince has been toting canes since at least the early 1990s.

We can’t believe that Prince needs double hip replacement surgery. Guess all of those years of choreography, orgies and other freaky mess finally caught up with his royal purpleness.

    His age isn’t the issue, its that bad hip he’s been walking around with for years. I don’t knock anyone’s religous beliefs but dang dude get some relief! The Jacksons are Jehovah’s witnesses also but that didn’t stop all that plastic surgery.

  • always knew

    I hope he is able to recover. Hannibal is finally right about something. Prince is STILL the man…gotta love him…he’s so talented…

    […] Prince walks around with a cane, but he may end up in a wheelchair, if he doesn’t undergo the surgical procedure to get both hips replaced. […]

    You have to remember though, each person makes there own chioce as to what religion they choose. Yes Blood Transfusions are a big thing in his faith, but, as far as the Jackson 5 goes, they may say they are one of JW’s but, do there actions show it? You can say your this or that, but how you portray yourself actually goes to show if you are really ginuwine. There are other ways around then just using blood in surgeries. There are 100’s of hospitals around the globe, that do not use blood at all. It’s just a matter of looking for the right hospital.

    Did you seriously just spell genuine “ginuwine”?

  • We Can't Stay Young Forever

    Let’s just hope that the Lord and a blessed life will allow us to be among the aged – we already know we can’t take anything for granted. So many young people have had to say good-bye to friends and relatives over the years due to an untimely passing.
    At the end of the day, if you’re inconvenienced by having to use a cane, opposed to being 6 feet under, give me my cane!

    GINUWINE, LOL…

    @ Calichk88:

    Thank you for schooling these fools about who and what people claim to be and the fact that there are soooo many ways to have surgeries these days WITHOUT the use of blood. How many people have to die due to blood transfusions being performed with TAINTED blood? Arthur Ashe died a senseless death because he receieved blood that was tainted with AIDS. There are millions of more like him out there. Hep C, and other diseases have been passed on to other people because of blood transfusions. I don’t blame Prince one bit for not doing the surgery with blood. So many advancements have been made over the years that allow for surgeries to be performed without the use of blood.
