Meet Prince Rogers Nelson. On June 27th, 2010 the legendary artist will receive the BET Lifetime Achievement award. From the moment he was born on June 7th, 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota it would not have surprised me that he came out of his mother’s womb curly mop top swaying and his fingers strumming on a guitar. The man was destined to be a star.

Not only is Prince a legendary guitarist, singer, songwriter and all-around class act earning several awards for his music over the years, he also snagged up a couple of Grammys and an Oscar for his movie Purple Rain. And if you haven’t seen Purple Rain, forget it. You’ve been living under a rock that is now moldy and full of stench.

Some pretty impressive facts about Prince include:

* He is said to have written over 1,000 songs and has over 100 songs hidden in his music vault.
* He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in the year 2004, the very first year that he was eligible to be inducted.
* He established the Minneapolis Sound which included a mixture of funk, rock, pop and a sex appeal that no one else could emulate.
* His Purple Rain album sat in the number one spot for 24 weeks! Purple Rain was also the album that raised his superstar status to incomparable.

Other fun facts:

* Prince is a vegetarian and in 2006 was voted the sexiest vegetarian by a PETA poll held online.
* Prince has been rumored to be kissing face with Kim Basinger, Madonna, Vanity, Sheila E., Carmen Electra, and Anna Fantastic.
* Prince was listed in 2010’s issue of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential people.

    Prince is a fraud. He has plagiarised one of his best songs, and he looks gay to me, and a lot.

    To the person above-Priscilla-mam, you are so out-of-it..what’s the ‘relevance’ of if he appears ‘gay’ to ‘you’? What is the effect of that to his pheonomenal, uncomparable, musical genius that brings me to tears everytime I hear it. If one is not at least 25 years of age, with a significant, contributing comment-do not comment on this sight; this sight appears to be legit, well-intentioned, well put together and sincere.
