Prince Slams Madonna During ‘Billboard’ Interview

Prince Slams Madonna

Prince slammed Madonna during a recent interview with BillboardMagazine. The 54-year-old singer named the Material Girl at one point when speaking about his time with Warner Bros. Records.

Prince and Madonna are known for a long-standing beef with each other, but it supposedly ended two years ago.

If Prince’s words during the recent interview mean anything, however, it looks like things are about to heat back up. Yahoo! News reports that the singer stated of his time with Warner Bros. Records:

“It was always about Madonna. She was getting paid, but at the same time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights.”

The two famously feuded after they dated briefly in 1985. They later worked together on Madonna’s “Love Song,” which was released on her 1988 album Like a Prayer.

Along with slamming Madonna, Prince also talked about Maroon 5, and it appears there’s no love lost their either. Maroon 5 covered Prince’s classic hit “Kiss.” E! Online notes that Prince stated:

“Why do we need to hear another cover of a song someone else did? Art is about building a new foundation, not just laying something on top of what’s already there.”

Prince is not the only one to make snide comments during his feud with Madonna. The Material Girl once stated of her one-time boyfriend, “[He] was a little troll. He was just sipping tea, very daintily. I have this theory about people who don’t eat. They annoy me.”

Later on, the artist formerly known as “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince,” compared the number of his chart-topping songs with how many children Madonna has. He said in 2007, “I got so many hits y’all can’t handle me. I got more hits than Madonna’s got kids.”

What do you think of Prince slamming Madonna?

    aww, poor princess… thought he was dead until this story… too bad you have to bring up Madonna in order for anyone to ever read your interview because the truth and the fact of the matter is, no one gives a shit about you anymore. you've been dead for so long…. and maybe you should learn from Madonna when it's about getting paid, but don't play the victim because Madonna is smarter than you and all your dumb lawyers put together.. that's why Madonna is the queen and you're a princess… or was it troll? BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    Prince is God! I love him, he so talented, probably the most talented artist ever…..he loves his fans, puts on one hell of a show for them each and everytime. Good that he SLAMMED Madonna and Maroon 5!

    I don't Prince said anything about bad about Madonna, but it goes to show, that Madonna is the ultimate best when it comes to getting what she wants. Prince should take this up with the label. Madonna has nothing to do with his contracts.

    Funny he should say that about covers after he covered Radiohead's "Creep" then demanded that it got taken down from YouTube. I've always loved Prince's music. But Prince himself? Not so much.

    jared you know nothing about prince, he is his label now. NO ONE CONTROLS HIM or his music, MADONNA is a money whore, prince is an artist

    He covered Creep because Radiohead covered one of his songs in concert…so although I do not agree (nor do I have to) there was a reason behind it.

    Being called a "little troll" probably is still make him reel for revenge. And given how she has gone through the phone book on seeking the right gladiator for her bed, she is probably snipping at his "little troll"……but who knows and who cares?

    Prince, the artist known as "the artist who used to be relevent". Two has-beens who need each other. Resurecting the feud to resurect interest. Hey Prince, want to win the feud, put out a good record!

    lol wow u obviously have not seen or heard alot about prince and madonna have u because if u had u would no its to late for them with god for those 2 i would have to say he gave up on them along time ago.

    Madonna is a talentless troll and will only get worse as her fear of aging increases. Prince is a man of few words, so for him to say something about that whore really says something.

    You can't fault a guy who treats his fans the way he does. Prince is truly open to his fan base and gives back to them with many unannounced shows at small local pubs or at his own paisley park. I do have more issue with Gaga rehashing what Madonna has already done. As for Maroon 5, maybe Prince was trying to motivate them to get creative?

  12. Christopher Citty

    Madonna is spent, old, tired, and boring. She also hasn't changed in 20 years. Well, in the mind. The body's not looking all that good, though. :D

    Kabbalah and Jehovah's Witness. I think they have all the God they can handle, it's just not the same as yours.

  14. Landon Adebiyi

    He's not really slamming anyone here. He's complaining about what he feels is unfair treatment at a previous record label and expressing his feelings about cover songs in albums.

    I thought be became a Jehovah like two years ago. They aren't allows to do that stuff. lol. What a waste of internet space. I litterally just saw him on the view.

    Prince is just an old little troll! LOL! Poor bastard he isn't relevant anymore! MDNA Tour is the best selling tour in 2012! Super Bowl Halftime Show is the most watched TV event in history! more than the game itself, that's hilarious! LONG LIVE THE ONE AND ONLY QUEEN OF POP! Prince who? LOL
