Prince, who famously scrawled "slave" on his face during a dispute with his record company in the mid-1990s, said yesterday (Dec. 13) he received everything he wanted in his latest deal with Universal Records. The pairing was first reported here last week.
"I got a chance to structure an agreement the way I saw fit instead of the other way around," Prince said during a news conference to promote the video for his new single, "Te Amo Corazon."
...Asked why he would sign on with the biggest record company in the world given his past clashes with major labels, Prince said, "I don't consider Universal a slave ship. I did my own agreement ... I got exactly what I wanted."
I wonder what it feels like to get exactly what you want. Good, I'm guessing.
