That's a lot of $$$! You better take care of this!

Sources report legendary performer Prince is on the naughty list of delinquent taxpayers in Minnesota. Records show that the musician's Minneapolis based PRN Music Corp. owes more than $227,000 for 2009 state and government taxes, while they owe $450,000 in property taxes!

Yikes! Time to start selling off shiz Nicolas Cage style! Can U afford that, Prince?

    He shouldn't be payin' dat! Homeboy'z been abused by the system and the white man! No African-American should ever pay taxes again cuz of da oppression at the hands of da white man!

    PS - George Bush hates black people.

    of course he can.. Prince stills sells out concerts around the world. Hes got enough money, just becuase he aint a fame whore doesnt mean hes not make money.



  3. 3

    partying like it's 1999!

    He better figure a way to pay up. If he doesn't they might mistake him for a biatch in jail. Soap on a rope…soap on a rope.

    Re: Duh Truth Hurtz – can you please write in english? some of us dont understand ebonics. as for Prince, this is very old news. last i heard he was coming out with a more commercial sounding album to take care of those taxes.

    "You can go platinum four times, still couldn't make what I make in a week." That's a Prince quote for ya. From "P Control". Yeah. He can handle himself.

    Everybody owes to the gov't., ad infinitum. Prince can write some great new stuff and tour, and pay that off whether he has the cash or not. YES. He will always be the king of purple. I would lovvvvve to see his classy act and mug all over the media again; if only because it beats what's all over it now by a little red corvette mile.

    That is RIDICULOUS! GOD doesn't have to pay TAXES! They's better hope Prince doesn't smite them for this. Cuz He can do it, don't test Him!



  11. 11

    BIG EFFING DEAL!! I'M SURE HE HAS THE CASH. ALL HE HAS TO DO IS PERFORM ONE CONCERT SELLING OUT AN ARENA AND IT'S PAID. STFU PEREZ!!

    WTF at the ghostwriter deleting our posts?



  13. 13

    Prince is worth somewhere between $250-300 million people.

    Get a clue.



  14. 14

    I bet it's as simply as his accountant not doing thier job…………………….Somebody will be getting fired really soon!!



  15. 15

    He can afford that. Trust.



  16. 16

    Re: moxiecrimefighter – I thought so. I just want him cranking Princely tunes and performing again. He's a musician's musician. (Plus he's my type.)



  18. 18

    all he has to do is release all the famed unreleased music he has in his famed vault any prince fan worth his salt know what im talking about…now if he released the music that was actually good like everything he worked on with the revolution then he will make his money…only bad thing is since he co-wrote all that music with wendy and lisa he will have to pay them their fare share that he never really did when they worked with him on all of his best records…just saying….



  19. 19

    Taxes are BS, only goods should be taxed not income



  20. 20

    Wow, he's aging badly.



  21. 21

    pay your f'ing bills you lame a*#holes

    Re: Duh Truth Hurtz – grow the hell up,….you live here you pay NO one should get a free ride,…stop with the riding of that dead horse

    Re: seanetic
    Aging badly? He looks amazing for 51.

    Anyway, P has had 4 top 5 albums in the last 6 years, sold 600,000+ in 2009 alone and made a fortune off his Musicology tour in 2004. This of course doesn't include his earlier 10 platinum albums, including Purple Rain (13x platinum). Prince is one of the highest grossing acts whenever he puts on a tour, so if he was strapped for cash, we know what he'd be doing.

    $677,000 is not a huge sum of money for Prince.



  25. 25

    Mario, you idiot, Prince has hundreds of millions… you must be a complete moron if you think he needs to start selling his shizzz…

    Re: tonyacat30 – I'm an African-American! I was brot here in chainz! I shouldn't have to pay for anything! I desserve respect and acknowlegement about my oppression that Jesse Jackson and da good Rev Al Sharpton talka bout and free stuff and to not have to get a job!

    This is all George Bush's fault! Like mah boy Kanye says "George Bush hatez black people!"



  27. 27

    I work with two JW's and they both have the same look on their face.



  28. 28

    Pig Face, you are such a clueless douche. If the money is owed by PRN Music Corp., then it's not owed by Prince. Fuck, I'd hate to see how Pig Face Records is financially structured if you've left yourself vulnerable to the IRS.



  29. 29

    For anyone that knows anything, this is not a big deal. That is the usual amount that big money celebrities pay for thier federal and state taxes and it isn't even late yet.I would say if this information is out, he is one of the good guys and actually got his taxes done early! And in case you are wondering, I am an accountant so I know.

    Re: Duh Truth Hurtz – stop whining about shit, if someone freaking owes money then they should pay it stop making it a race thing
