What’s Beef?: Okay. Maybe Prince’s B-Side statement was more of a brazen response than a diss. But his Royal Badness—who was still at the height of his world-beating commercial powers—didn’t take too kindly being deemed a selfish asshole by the press. Not after turning down Quincy Jones’ request to appear on the all-star, hunger-fighting single “We Are The World.” Clearly for Prince, who donated his own track to the USA For Africa project, charity begins at home.
Stole On You Moment: “We're against hungry children, our record stands tall/But there's just as much hunger here at home.”
