Prince can do things other people can't

It's true. Imagine if Prince never existed and some music playing friend of yours walked up to you and said, "Hey, I just wrote a new song. It's called 'When Doves Cry.' You want to listen to it?" You'd probably say, "'When Doves Cry?' 'When Doves Cry?' No thanks, jerk. What's next on your agenda, 'When Flowers Hug?' Call me when you're ready to rock." You would never realize the badass jam you had just walked away from.

Prince's greatest power is the power to somehow make people take him seriously. The guy is wearing ass-less purple pants and I'm like, "I think I need to listen to what this man is saying. It's probably important and true."

Yes, but never forget: Prince can't do somethings other people can.

plus also, prince is now a jehovah's witness, and he has quit using a lot of the dirty words in his music, which really takes away a lot of the mystifying erotic power that is prince. "let me lick your pussy" would, at best, now be "let me lick your puppy." or potato. or pistachio. you get the idea.

I think the argument culminates with the fact that an entire nation of women found him to be more desirable than anything else. Ever.

Kudos, Prince. Kudos.
