Filed under "Things That Make Me Feel Old"

The artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince -- he of Delirious, and Little Red Corvette, and dozens of very sexy songs on the mix tapes (remember?) of my misspent youth -- needs a hip replacement.

No, you don't have to be cool, to rule my world. Shit, before long you won't even have to walk.


  1. Oh, wow - the first time I ever saw MTV, it was the weekend Purple Rain came out. I remember that song and Elton John's Sad Songs Say So Much being played over and over.

  2. One of my colleagues said, and I quote, "wow, you remember when MTV played music videos? You must be old."

  3. They way he works those hips, it's no wonder!

    But yeah, I feel old now too.

  4. Prince needs a hip replacement? God, we are getting old, aren't we? I remember strutting around to his Little Red Corvette and singing along in a sassy way.

    Now, I have rheumatoid arthritis and sciatica. My knees are going bad. I feel them aching on long walks.

    This is so....pathetic.

  5. Makes me feel old(ish) too. I remember going to see his movie when it came out...and whether you liked him and his music or not, you HAD to be seen at the movie so you could be cool at school.

  6. OMG....that's sad. How old is he?? How old are WE?
