  2. 2. •  Prince  Rogers  Nelson            was  born  in  1958,              in  Minneapolis     •  That’s  right:     His  name  is  actually   Prince.  High  school  yearbook  picture  of  Prince,  1974  
  3. 3. Prince,  released  1979   •  His  second   album,  Prince   went   PlaInum.   •  Prince  was  18   when  he   recorded  it.  
  4. 4. Dirty  Mind,  1980  and  Controversy,  1981  
  5. 5. 1999,  1982   I  had  to  listen  to  the   song  “1999”  at  least   15  Imes  at    a  Y2K   New  Year’s  party.  It   got  a  liPle  weird   aQer  a  while.  
  6. 6. Prince  and  the  RevoluIon,  Purple  Rain,  1984   •  Princes  1984  album   Purple  Rain  sold   more  than  20  million   worldwide.  and   spent  twenty-­‐four   consecuIve  weeks  at   No.1  on  the  US   Billboard  200  chart.     •  The  song     “LiPle  Nicky”   provoked  those   Explicit  Lyrics  labels.  
  7. 7. Prince,  Lovesexy,  1988   •  I’ll  admit  –   I  have  no  idea   what  to  make     of  this  album   cover,  either.  
  8. 8. Prince    "Nude  Tour"  1990    Only  Elvis  and  David  Bowie  can  compete  with  Prince’s  wild  ou_its.
