    Default The reason why Prince is not playing?

    NEWS OF THE WORLD
    Prince crippled by sexy dancing

    By Georgina Dickinson

    Pop legend Prince is having a secret HIP REPLACEMENT at the age of just 49—after being crippled by years of sexy dancing.

    The pint-sized US star would develop a severe limp and have to use a WALKING STICK without surgery.

    So he is booking himself into a private hospital. Aides are keeping his diary clear for two months to recover—but they're not letting on why he cannot work in that time.

    During the two-hour op—more common for OAPs—the Purple Rain singer will have the ball and socket of his damaged hip taken out and titanium replacements cemented in.

    A source said: "For months Prince has complained of pain every time he moves.

    "He is totally crushed as he knows he will never be the same again."

    News of the World GP Dr Hilary Jones said: "The op won't stop him dancing. But if he does anything too vigorous—for example the splits—the new joint may become displaced."

    Ouch. So now we know why he didn't take up Goldenvoice on their offer. But at least he has a cromulent excuse, unlike My Bloody Valentine.

    I bet he would still rock the place even if they rolled him out in a hospital bed.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    See, now we have a reason why Prince, My Bloody Valentine and Radiohead were not at Coachella. If it were up too Paul T, all 3 would have been there this year. Well, maybe not Radiohead, cuz Paul T was saving for APW. But atleast we know he tried his best to Prince and My Bloody Valentine.

    they're keeping his diary clear?
    Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.

    and, diary? is it pink and does it have a lock on it?

    I thought he had his fiftieth birthday this year actually.

    Man, that sexy dancing takes its toll eventually.

    I don't see anything wrong with his hip.

    A writter for the LA Times said Goldenvoice made a huge push to get Prince this year. However, when they realized they couldn't, they contacted Roger Waters.

    Two spelling errors today, Josh. Knock that shit off before mean people see.
