Prince Sued for Painting House Purple

Prince recently upset his landlord, NBA star Carlos Boozer, by allegedly turning a $11.9 million rental property into a purple fantasyland.

Boozer, who is renting a West Hollywood home to the musician for $70,000 a month, sued Prince in January, alleging that the singer painted the title of his new album, 3121, and his "prince" symbol onto the exterior of the house, according to papers obtained by the Smoking Gun Web site.

The suit also alleged that Prince had purple stripes painted on the house and installed a purple monogrammed carpet in the master bedroom.

Lawyers for Prince countered the suit with proof that Boozer had collected his rent without complaint, and the lawsuit was dismissed in February – though the Smoking Gun says Boozer can file again on the same grounds.

Reps for Prince had no comment. His lease reportedly ends May 31.

people.comBefore Prince went onstage before 1,200 fans at Miami club Mansion – where he played new songs along with Purple Rain-era hits and a cover of Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done for Me Lately?" – he spent the previous night at hot spot Prive with his newest protégée, Tamar. And he had some unusual requests. First he had the staff close all the vents in the VIP section because he was chilly. Then he ordered three bottles of port wine – telling his server he needed a straw so he wouldn't stain his teeth. The royal treatment continued the next night after his concert, when Mansion set up its exclusive upstairs room Level Six for him for the first time since the club opened a year and half ago. But for Prince it was all old hat: The room used to be his private lair in the '90s when he owned the nightclub in its former life as Glam Slam.

NY Daily NewsPrince dancer's misstep?Prince might want to consider giving his backup dancers a raise, as police say one of them has been trying to supplement her income by smuggling cocaine.Cecilia Maximilia was arrested April 17 with a whopping 44 pounds of the drug. The British dancer was picked up by police at the airport in Rio de Janeiro, where she was scheduled to take an Air France flight to Paris. She was nabbed with Jennifer Salgnac, each of whom carried three bags transporting the drugs, according to authorities. X-ray machines detected the coke, wrapped in packages hidden in the luggage under false bottoms, police say. I wonder if the suitcases (hint, hint) were Versace.

Flanked by backup dancers The Twinz, Prince plays host at a party for the winners of his 3121 Purple Ticket Contest. His Purpleness hid 18 tickets, Willy Wonka-style, in copies of his new CD, and invited the lucky winners to mingle with pals such as Bruce Willis and Sharon Stone at his West Hollywood home.

Someone posted on the Vegas board I moderate that he's doing a big 3121 thing in Vegas--renaming the club in honor of the album, and charging $312.10 for tickets. Yikes, and I thought Madonna and the Stones were expensive.....

Prince's Purple Reign

So many stars turned out for Prince's 3121 party, we had to wonder: How did all of Hollywood fit into one place? Jude Law hung out with pals in a booth brought in for the occasion, Bruce Willis canoodled with an attractive brunette, Jessica Alba and beau Cash Warren held hands and cuddled, and Jada Pinkett Smith and Thandie Newton danced to Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop."

The high-wattage guest list – including Sharon Stone, Angela Bassett, Ziyi Zhang and Tricia Yearwood – got a special treat when The Purple One took the stage for two sets: First, Prince backed up his protégé, singer Tamar, on guitar for her pre-midnight show. Then after 1 a.m., he played his own music for almost two hours, including new songs ("3121") and old hits ("Purple Rain"). All the while, partygoers at his Hollywood Hills home feasted on sushi, mini-quiches, tuna tartare, raspberry sorbet with chocolate cookies, and star-shaped sugar cookies frosted in – what else? – purple.



I would LOVE to see him play sometime.

Prince rocks the house at the 10th annual Webby Awards in New York City on Monday. The musician was honored with a lifetime achievement award for his "visionary" use of the Internet, including being the first major artist to release an entire album – 1997's Crystal Ball – exclusively on the Web.

I was a huge Prince fan back in the day and then he sort of got crazy and his music started to suck. I am so excited that it looks like the old Prince is BACK! I haven't heard the whole album yet but his appearances on Idol and SNL were great and reminded me of the old Prince I used to love so I just downloaded a couple of the new songs from Itunes. I think his single is great and he's looking well - I'm happy to see him back to his old self (mostly, or so it would seem) Here's the video to one of his singles: http://www.jalive.co.....e=Black Sweat

Do you guys also remember when he found Jesus and announced that he was not going to be singing any of his "dirty" songs in concert anymore?Is he still doing that? Cuz I would love to go see him but if he isn't singing the dirty ones I ain't going :) (also, how many songs would he have left to sing without the dirty ones? like, three??)

I saw him in concert in 2004--and yes, he did not sing any of his dirty songs as I recall. :(
In fact, when he sang Little Red Corvette--Prince pointed to the audience and let the crowd sing the part about the girl’s stash of used condoms- :D. I was hoping he'd sing Erotic City, Cream, Do Me Baby among others. Believe it or not that concert was about 2 1/2 hours long and he did jam pack it with songs, some from his then released CD Musciology, but there were plenty of old school Prince songs; Let's Go Crazy, I Would Die 4 U, When Doves Cry, Controversy, Nothing Compares 2 U, Purple Rain. I thought he put on a fantastic show..and I would definitely see him again.
