Story Headline: Prince Breaks the Silence
Background: After several name changes with matching personas, each that won the world over, VIBE sat down with the artist formerly known as Prince to catch up with the mystery man. In this same year, he began releasing album after album to remove himself from contractual obligations to Warner Bros. VIBE met up with the superstar on several occasions to talk about what he had been up to and documented it in a four-part feature story, giving fans a small glimpse into the life of the man so few really knew outside of his superstar stature.
Memorable Quote: "I just want to be all that I can be. Bo Jackson can play baseball and football--can you imagine what I would do if I could do all I can? If they let me loose, I can wreck shit."
