Wow! Many Prince Fans Are ANGRY With Madonna Right Now, Here’s Why…
Madonna is a world icon, whom millions of fans adore, but apparently there are a bunch of Prince fans who aren’t really feeling her like she’s a “virgin touched for the very first time” right about now. After word got out that Madonna was the chosen artist who will be paying a performance tribute to her friend, Prince, at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards on May 22nd, all HELL broke lose in the world of Prince fandom (not sure if that’s really a word, but I think y’all catch my drift). Anyways, some angry, disapproving fans have now started an online petition to officially push Madonna and her tribute ‘over the borderline’ (for our young Old School family, that is a reference to Madonna’s 1983 song, “Borderline”). Check out the petition ILOSM family, it’s pretty interesting…
PRINCE FANS ARE TRYING TO KICK MADONNA OFF BMA PRINCE TRIBUTE
Prince's fans' Change.org petition reads as follows:
'We cannot let Madonna be the main and only artist tributing Prince during the 2016 Billboard Awards. He is more than worthy of a better choice as a main performer. Please sign and share this petition so that we can get a proper tribute on May 22, 2016. Timing is tight! Spread the word.'Sorry Madonna, you're doing a beautiful thing for your friend and it seems very genuine, but many of Prince's fans probably love you 364 days of the year, just not on May 22, 2016 when your Prince tribute will be happening on the BMA's. I think the fans were expecting more of a soulful artist who could take 'em to chuuuurch as they celebrate Prince's legacy- like Stevie Wonder, or Chaka, or Fantasia, or D'Angelo, or Patti LaBelle, and maybe even add Sheila E., or Morris Day & The Time, or Prince's Revolution or New Power Generation bands, or...well, you get what I'm saying. What are your thoughts on this ILOSM fam?' Click here if you want to sign the petition.
