Prince Slams Madonna In New Interview

Pop icon Prince made noise earlier this week by letting his soul glow on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard Magazine. But the juices, berries and pasta-strainer shades cover art was apparently just the tip of the iceberg.

Asked by things ended badly between himself and Warner Bros. Records, Prince cites the Material Girl by name, telling the magazine:

“It was always about Madonna. She was getting paid, but at the same time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights.”

Madonna and Prince actually dated in the 80s (we know: EWWWW!) and collaborated on “Love Song” off the album “Like a Prayer.”

But the relationship turned sour and Madonna referred to Prince as a “little troll” in 1994.

After telling Billboard how he really felt about Madonna makin’ all the gwap while he was the one putting out the goods, Prince also had this to say:

Prince also takes a shot at Adam Levine and his band in the Q&A, referring to Maroon 5’s cover of “Kiss” last year and asking:

“Why do we need to hear another cover of a song someone else did? Art is about building a new foundation, not just laying something on top of what’s already there.”

Sounds like Prince has no love for anyone out here in these streets! However, re-makes have contributed to the success of many of today’s artists and seem to generally do well in the mainstream sense. Do you agree with Prince?
