"Daddy Pop" - Favorite Prince Quotes (1990s)

*Featuring art from the 9T99 Coloring Book

"There’s nothing a critic can tell me that I can learn from. ... If they were musicians, maybe. But I hate reading about what some guy sitting at a desk thinks about me. You know, ‘He’s back, and he’s black,’ or ‘He’s back, and he’s bad.'"


- Rolling Stone, 1990











"If I was somebody else, writers and critics would be all up in the way the chords work and the keyboard lines. They just write off my slow jams."


- Spin, 1991













"I said to him, ‘Do you believe in God?’ And he says, ‘No.’ And I say, ‘Do you believe in faith? In hope?’ By the end of it, blood was down on his knees, looking for a church to go pray.”


- The Globe and Mail, 1996












"I really don't like categories (for my music), but the only thing I could think of is inspirational. And I think music that is from the heart falls right into that category, people who really feel what it is that they're doing. And ultimately all music is or can be inspirational. And that's why it's so important to let your gift be guided by something more clear."


- Larry King Live, 1999
