An Interview with the Prince formerly known as The Artist

Barney Hoskyns, MOJO, March 2000

FIRST, A CAVEAT. This is probably not the first piece you’ve ever started reading about FINALLY MEETING THE ARTIST FORMERLY KNOWN AS SHHH-YOU-KNOW-WHO. In fact, you’re probably bored silly by accounts of waiting in the antechambers of Paisley Park to natter to the maverick chameleon who single-handedly bossed ’80s pop.

Total word count of piece: 2080
