So what is singer Prince saying about Madonna and Maroon 5 in the latest and new billboard magazine? (Check out Huffngton Post and billboard)
Foster the People frontman Mark Foster was kicked out of a Prince gig on October 25, 2012.
The 'Pumped Up Kicks' singer was escorted out of The Sayers Club in Hollywood when he was spotted by security playing on his mobile phone, as the gadgets and similar types of recording equipment have been banned from the 'Purple Rain' singer's private shows.
According to TMZ, Mark pleaded with security to let him back in to the intimate concert after insisting he was only checking his phone and wasn't trying to take a picture as well as explaining he is in Foster the People and saying he hadn't closed his bar tab.
After a few minutes of trying to negotiate his way back into the gig, security gave him the green light but not until they had checked out his mobile phone.
Mark didn't have any hard feelings about the incident, which he claims was just a misunderstanding as he was simply checking a text message from a friend when he was spotted by security.
As he was leaving the venue, he told the gossip website: "It's cool ... Prince doesn't play in front of 100 people every night."
And now I must listen to their addictive hit Pumped Up Kicks.... like I did a million times around this time last year.
LOL. Yes the legendary RICHARD SIMMONS!!! The day my father ordered the Deal-a-Meal diet package I knew I was a RS fan for life! How could you hate the man wearing the snazziest shorts on Earth?!?!? I'm dedicating the song Diamonds And Pearls by Prince to Richard for being that beautiful flower in all of our mornings.

Pop superstar Prince is refusing to record another album because he is so disappointed with the online music industry.
He tells Britain's The Guardian, "The industry changed. We made money (online) before piracy was real crazy. Nobody's making money now except phone companies, Apple and Google. I'm supposed to go to the White House to talk about copyright protection. It's like the gold rush out there. Or a carjacking. There's no boundaries. I've been in meetings and they'll tell you, 'Prince, you don't understand, it's dog-eat-dog out there'. So I'll just hold off on recording."
The singer was the first major artist to release a whole album, 1997's Crystal Ball, exclusively online, but he admits he doesn't actually like music in digital form.
He adds, "I personally can't stand digital music. You're getting sound in bits. It affects a different place in your brain. When you play it back, you can't feel anything. We're analogue people, not digital."
Try telling this to singer Katy Perry who has just broken a record for selling over 4 million digital copies of her song E.T - her fifth single to break the 4 million mark (Perez Hilton). Eat those Hersey Kisses Prince. And what does Justin Timberlake's sexy back have to say about it?
Pop superstar Prince is adamant he will never sell his songs on the internet, insisting web-based outlets will soon disappear because they are no longer "hip".
The Purple Rain singer has long battled to keep his music offline - in 2007 he sued video sharing website YouTube.com as well as eBay.com claiming they "are clearly able (to) filter porn and pedophile material but appear to choose not to filter out the unauthorized music and film content which is core to their business success."
Prince has also moved to ban fansites using images and anything linked to his likeness, while a home video of a child dancing to one of his songs on YouTube was pulled down in 2007 after the star's Universal Music Publishing claimed the recording infringed copyright.
The artist is still refusing to allow websites to sell his music and he's adamant fans will soon move on from the internet.
He says, "The internet's completely over. I don't see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won't pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can't get it.
"The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can't be good for you."
