This should have been easy for me.
I should have came up with an insult the moment I read this:
I want to hear Prince singing some of my lyrics before I die...
It took me a day to figure out what I wanted to say. I wanted to go the "Prince's a Jehovah's Witness! He wouldn't touch 'When You're Mad' (let alone you)" route at first.
I wanted to combine this little quote of yours with this video.
I wanted to talk about "So Sick" and how it wouldn't stand up to the worst songs in Prince's catalogue.
Now since I don't have to stare at a computer screen waiting for things to print out, I can finally type this, what I should have said a day ago:
Prince doesn't know who you are.
P.S. Tell your manager that I'd rather hear In My Own Words on a loop while looking at that dumb poem on the back of the In My Own Words jewel case for the rest of my life than beat you up for your chain and money--you'll need to use that when your advance runs out and you have to work beside Bow Wow cooking fries and reheating hamburgers at McDonalds. Smile!
