Prince in Verizon ad

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2007 at 8:02 AM

I saw this video posted at Outrageouschaos. Brooke calls her post, This is what it looks like when Brooke cries...

I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm torn. I mean, if Prince really likes his Verizon service, is it ok for him to prostitute his art in this way? I dunno. I feel like, 10 years ago, I would have said he was selling out. And it still feels like he's selling out.

But the decision seems to make more sense to me now, perhaps because I've become a corporate suck-dog. Or possibly because I've developed a greater appreciation for money now that I have a kid to feed, a mortgage to pay, car payments and a long-term boiler loan. Whatever.

But still, Verizon? Did it have to be Verizon?
