Prince Charges Fans For Closed Fan Club

From Our Artist/Fan Relationship Dept.

image from themusictionary.com To Prince, His Purple Majesty, His Royal Badness, The Dick Formerly Known As Prince:

Today, a year after opening your LotusFlow3r club, you charged fans who had requested to cancel their annual memberships another $77. How do I know? Because I am one of them.

Prince, you’ve gotta cut this shit out. I’m a big fan, I drove 15 hours to see you last year. I own all of your albums, movies, and lots of other memorabilia. Yeah, I’m a fan. But would it kill you to treat your fans correctly for once?
...The worst part is, several months ago I sent a request to your support/sales group at LotusFlow3r requesting to cancel my membership. I never received a reply, so I went into the site and changed my credit card information....The best part? As of the time of this writing — your website is actually down, and completely inaccessible.
Part of me wants to hope that you have something bigger planned. But that makes it sound like I’m drinking the purple Kool-Aid..

Sincerely please stop being a giant purple dick,
