I didn't know about Prince until his death was announced recently... It trips even me out how CT generates such parallels sometimes, but his demeanor is eerily similar to FiSe Michael Jackson. I see them as twin shades, I think. I suspect both are male FiSe Indie Artists with a very similar vultology.
Here at 2:12 we see his Fi snarling smile (smiles are a bit rare for him in general) but what attracts me most about this video is how he describes himself. First, we see Fi's righteous individualism in not wanting to be labeled, defined or owned by a company. He went as far as to change his name to an unpronounceable symbol in order to escape the 'system' he was under (Te) and its way of doing things.
This is very similar to the sort of things Michael Jackson would do, by ignoring convention and following his own aesthetic and eccentricities. But these eccentricities aren't spontaneous or Pe - they emerge from a deep private conviction and sense of identity that follows its own compass, wherever it leads. Off-beat.
His voice is not high pitched like Jackson's, and thus not whispery in the same way, but it remains forlorn, pained in some way and gentle - if a bit effeminate. There is an effeminate quality also to the rest of his character:
He dresses in a very eclectic attire, with a woman's hairstyle, a soft posture, delicate and meticulous finger motions, and a soft but sharp gaze. As I found very often with FiSe's (re: Kanye West), he had disputes with his umbrella company about ownership rights, about when he should record or how often.
"I had searched deep within my heart and spirit and wanted to make a change and move to a new plateau in my life. And one of the ways that I did that was to change my name - it sort of divorced me from the past and all the hangups that go along with it."
As with a few other African American FiSe's (like Janet and Michael Jackson) his smile is wide but we can still see Fi clearly in the giddy quality of his smile, and the private energy from which it emerges ("radiates").
Anyway, just a stumbleupon.
Maybe this can be a general Prince discussion thread, too.
What do you think of the artist?
