Prince Promises a Slew of Events Happening Around Electric LAlaland
Prince has some events lined up for the people of Los Angeles some time around March 24th.
At least that's what this message written by the Purple One, passed along to us by Prince's people, suggests. As you'll see, not only does Prince write his own rules but he also seems to write in his own 15 year-old girl on a Sidekick text message-like language:
Calling all Purpleheadz: ready 2 get plugged in? From the 24th on, there will b a slew of NPG-related events happening around electric LAlaland.. we don't want 2 give away all the details yet, but b prepared 2 get yo groove on, numerous ways 4 numerous days. We know $ is tite but the adventures will b worth ur while! Stay 2ned 2 this outtaspacestation..
LA Weekly is guessing Prince may be planning a secret in-store performance at the Target on La Brea but they say "that's idle speculation."
If Prince really wants to shock people, he'll start a show on time. That would really make his fans go crazy.
Update: Dr. Funkenberry.com reports, and we have confirmed, that Prince will be appearing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno three consecutive nights - March 25th, 26th, and 27th.
