Prince Fans Launch Petition To Stop Madonna’s Billboard Tribute

Published: Saturday 14th May 2016 by Sam

Billboard’s planned Prince tribute with Madonna has not impressed certain corners of the late singer’s fanbase.

The Pop queen has been tapped to perform at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards and, as at writing, she’s the only act enlisted for the “unmissable” tribute at the May 22nd ceremony.

Angered, a supporter of the Purple one started a petition demanding an amendment to the mono Madge line-up. And it’s gaining traction.

Details below…

The following popped up on Change.org:

We cannot let Madonna be the main and only artist tributing Prince during the 2016 Billboard Awards. He is more than worthy of a better choice as a main performer. Please sign and share this petition so that we can get a proper tribute on May 22, 2016. Timing is tight! Spread the word.

    WOW THEY ARE RIGHT

    • Anti-garbage singing voices May 14, 2016

      I agree. There is Beyonce, she did a beautiful great S Wonder tribute but there is also Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, K Wilson, Lady Gaga etc all much much better than Madonna.

      • Sam May 14, 2016

        Well, instead of the usual people (all you have named) i would like to see renditions by Fantasia, Jasmine Sullivan, P!nk, Maxwell. Usher, Christina Aguilera, dvsn, Eric Benet, Faith Evans, Mary J Blige, Jill `Scott, KeKe Wyatt, Lauren Hill.

      • Anti-garbage singing voices May 14, 2016

        Sam in okay with them 2, all much much much better choice than maddona.

      • DHANI May 14, 2016

        Out of all the people you named.. who did prince actually write a song for?… the answer is none.. but he did write and a record a song with Madonna. I think she is more than qualified to do a tribute to Prince

      • Sweaterz May 15, 2016

        I hope Britney will join Madonna during the tribute.
        That will be majorrr..

    • ???????? May 14, 2016

      TLC SHOULD PERFORM(not headline) IF I WAS YOUR GIRLFRIEND. Clearly he liked them, he cleared 2 songs for them to cover(GET IT UP AND IF I WAS YOUR GIRLFRIEND)

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Great idea!! And someone find Tevin Campbell, to do a little ‘Round and Round!!

        I hope BET and Maybe MTV will give us a more well-rounded tribute.

  2. Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? May 14, 2016

    Madonna is annoying and her gimmick is played out with this generation. Prince deserves better then the wicked witch of the music industry.

    • What Now May 14, 2016

      Madonna has one of the top selling tours of this generation and all time. What does Weezer have besides Birdman’s tongue in his ass?

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? May 14, 2016

        H** kick rocks, the gay jokes are played out. I dragged your fellow navy members, you can get it to.

  3. Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

    I would like to see something from the “family”. Shelia E., the Time w/ Morris Days, chaka Khan, the NPG.

    Maybe, some artists directly influenced by Prince like Lenny Kravitz, and Miguel.

    I’m not feeling Madonna headlining, much less, carrying the WHOLE tribute. It doesn’t make sense. She seems an odd and non organic choice.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      * Morris Day
      *inorganic

  4. Meteorite May 14, 2016

    I get why Madonna was selected; Michael, Prince, Whitney and Madonna were the heavy hitters of the 80’s. And she’s last surviving icon, so why not have another icon tribute another icon. And I don’t think Madonna would do anything to chastise Prince’s legacy. From my understanding they were friends and he has attend her concerts and vice versa and they worked together on her album Like A Prayer. So yeah they were clearly friends. However it would be nice if the The Revolution (Prince’s band) and Sheila E. all came together in addition to Madonna and did something to together. But whatever they do they just need to make sure it’s all females singing his song because Prince has made it known he does not like men singing his song.

    • Sam May 14, 2016

      But Madonna cannot sing thats why. If we have to hear Princes songs sung on a major platform can it at least be from people who can sing.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Lol. If Prince hated Janet, I wonder how he must have loathed that Rupaul/Laverne C** tribute act dedicated to the Queen??

        You know, your irrelevant tuck n’ crump fave @Cintoliebitch..

    • SMH May 14, 2016

      No Madonna is not the last surviving Icon. Janet is still here, still kicking ass. And frankly would be a much better choice to tribute Prince. Her sound and music are directly connected to the Minneapolis Sound. Prince even added ‘What Have You Done For Me Lately’ to his setlist on his last couple of tours.

      • Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

        Janet Jackson?! SCREAMING!!! AS I’ve said before Prince and I share the same hairstylist and according to her Prince couldn’t stand Janet Jackson

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Lol. If Prince hated Janet, I wonder how he must have loathed that Rupaul/Laverne C** tribute act dedicated to the Queen??

    • Truth(honey Adel is a has been like nicki) May 14, 2016

      Biitch Janet is the last one. Madge is a joke…like yo mammy

  5. Krista May 14, 2016

    Truth tbh

  6. Dev May 14, 2016

    i’m signing now!

  7. Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

    I am looking forward to another self serving speech from Madge, that has very little to do with Prince, just like the one she gave for Michael.

    Should be entertaining..

  8. Coolness May 14, 2016

    Lol, mess. I understand the concern because I can’t imagine Madge being the only artist to tribute Prince at the Billboard Awards. However, she was his peer and alongside him, MJ, Whitney and Janet, defined Pop music for the 80s so it does make sense that she’d be asked to pay tribute. Two out of the aforementioned are dead and the other one doesn’t really mess with the industry anymore. Like a few have mentioned, actually get those who were like family to Prince and actually admired. I’m talking Sheila E, Morris Day, Chaka Khan, Janelle Monae, Beyoncé and those who are very much inspired by him and would treat covering his songs with care like D’Angelo and Maxwell.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      Yes I agree. It makes sense for her to tribute her contemporary, but the way it’s being sold as she is the main(or only) tribute act is just weird.

      I would like to see also the women he worte for, or covered his songs on the stage..

      **If sinead apologized to Prince and preformed that would be great.

      1) Chaka Khan – I feel for you
      2) Sinead O’Connor – nothing compares to you.**
      3) the Bangles – Manic Monday
      4)Sheila E. – The Glamorous Life
      5) Patti LaBelle – Yo’ Mister

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        ***Performed

    • Keith May 14, 2016

      I agree with this….in fact, why not take those artists and creste an HBO live concert event. THAT would be worth watching. Madonna is on some bull…ugh

  9. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? May 14, 2016

    Yes! You can’t tell me she must be saltier than a pretzel right now. Oh, well! You don’t play around with people’s tributes like that just because of your star power. After all, you wouldn’t want someone to do that for yours.

  10. Danny May 14, 2016

    Beyoncé? Really? Y’all need to stop being ignorant. Madonna and Prince were friends, collaborators and icons together. She makes perfect sense. Beyoncé has no connection other than skin color. Madonna would be great along with the Pronce family. Stop hating on Madonna. She was a lot more successful than him with more staying power.

    • Coolness May 14, 2016

      “…. She has no connection other than skin color.” Ignorant much? Prince expressed his admiration for Beyoncé’s TALENT as far back as her DC’s Survivor era days. It’s was when they collaborated on stage at the 2004 Grammys that they made a true connection and he’s been a supporter ever since then. And wtf does Madonna being more successful than Prince have to do with anything. Please have several seats.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Co-sign. The hate is so real. Beyonce is talented. If Prince didn’t think so he would have Kim Kardashian’ed her off his stage.

        Yet they had a very memorable performance…

  11. Lake Erie May 14, 2016

    Lmao! !! But I agree. Prince fans know that Madonna will turn the show into a karaoke amateur night. He deserves waaaaaay better than that. So I pray too that she gets booted. Just because she was friends with him and the last one standing doesn’t mean a thing. We want quality not quantity (her inherited privilege to be a candidate).

  12. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Stop hating on Madonna. Prince and Madonna were friends. I’m sure Prince wouldn’t approve of what his “fans” are doing. They knee each other personally. Some of these fans need to get a life and find something more productive to do with their lives

  13. Kitteneyez May 14, 2016

    Mariah Beyonce Usher would be perfect

  14. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    And please stop it with the Beyonce B.S. Beyonce was much younger than Prince. They weren’t close. Prince was close to people in his generation: Patti Labelled, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder,etc.

  15. Gee May 14, 2016

    While I’m not pleased with billboard’s choice I’m sure they have their reasons.

  16. SMH May 14, 2016

    Beyonce is not worthy enough to pay tribute to Prince, period. There are FAR more talented people he has worked with that are worthy to perform in tribute to him.

  17. Del May 14, 2016

    I guess it’s cool that she is participating, but I’m not feeling her doing the entire tribute. I know they were friends and collaborated once on her Like A Prayer album, but when you think of Prince and his musical influence, Madonna is not the first name to come to mind. Alicia Keys covered How Come You Don’t Call Me, Chaka Khan covered I Feel For You, Sinead O’Connor covered Nothing Compares 2 U, Meli’sa Morgan covered Do Me Baby, Mariah Carey covered The Beautiful Ones with Dru Hill, Cyndi Lauper covered When U Were Mine. He wrote Yo Mister for Patti LaBelle, The Glamorous Life for Sheila E., Sugar Walls for Sheena Easton, as well as dueted with her on his hit U Got the Look, Manic Monday for The Bangles, S** Shooter for Apollonia 6. All of these ladies are still among us and it would be dope that they would perform the hits they covered or he wrote for them. Madonna’s Love Song, her duet with Prince, was not even released as a single, so it will be interesting to see what she performs.

  18. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    My hairstylist knew Prince for 28 years. Even went to his private memorial in Minnesota. She knows him better than you and I. Prince had no love for Janet. If you down like that too bad

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      You poor thing. Delusions of grandeur is a symptom of the syphilis you caught from your pimp.

      If you expect anyone to believe that a multimillionaire and supreme talent like Prince and an internet troll like you have the same hair stylist, your syphilis has gone dormant, and it’s too late to treat you, boo.

      P.s. one thing is for sure, no one wants a tribute by your manly fave. Which is why Janet paid her dust when she tried it for her. Lolol

  19. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Prince did not like Janet or Michael. Nothing you poor souls on here say or do can change that fact. Prince’s hairstylist knew him personally. So I take her word for it

  20. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Prince loved Patti Lavelle, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys. But Janet and Michael? Uhh Uhh

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      Poor Molly. Still mad no one likew HeHe, huh??

      Get over it. You have had enough years to get used to the idea. Lmao.

      Whether, Prince liked Michael or Janet doesn’t matter. I know he respected his fellow legends legacies.

      What is He-man’s legacy?? “Mama I want to sing, straight to video”?

      Or local McDonald’s commercials(not even nationwide worthy).

      B**** it’s funny how you never mentioned Prince or this hairstylist before he died.

      Lol you are as transparent, and weak as water. 🙂

  21. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    And I have his hairstylists’ phone number. Now choke on that, haters

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      Choke on your faves nutz. 🙂

  22. k May 14, 2016

    some people have way too much time on there hands.

  23. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Prince did not like Michael or Janet Jackson. Get mad all you want to but Prince did not like them and he didn’t have to

  24. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Prince was a human being. He had his likes and dislikes. If you mad that he didn’t like Janet or Michael: TOUGH

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      I don’t care one way or the other. Just don’t like liar’s like you. Prince and you with the same stylist. Lmao! You smoke that good ish, huh?? 🙂

  25. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    You mad because you can’t have a celebrity stylist like I can? I live in LA, honey, it’s not hard to get close to a celebrity

  26. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    And I don’t care if you believe me or not. I am telling the truth and I don’t have to prove myself to you or anyone else

  27. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Anyway, Madonna will do a good job. She knew Prince personally. These stupid fans need to worry about more important issues

  28. Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

    Ugly you care. For every comment I make you make 3! Lmao!

    Poor thing, if HeHe can’t get an appointment with Prince stylist, I doubt a 24/7 internet troll like you ever could. Lmao. Go watch your fave shake his disco stick and simmer down.

    Keep clinging to every artist’s nutz but your own. I don’t blame you. Xoxo. 🙂

    • Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

      You mad, hoodrat, because my hairstylists’ hands touched Prince’s hair? Good, stay mad.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        I’m mad because they didn’t catch your syphilis in time..

  29. JOHNVIDAL May 14, 2016

    Madonna cannot sing and put on a real tribute music wise like Gaga has showed she can, so I understand this.

    But it is also true that there´s something beautiful and special about it being Madonna, as this big (bigger than any of your favorites are now, if you don´t want to admit that it´s just your own delusion) artist and icon that debuted in the 90s and slayed next to Prince, Whitney, Michael, U2 and so on (WOW it´s incredible to see the decline, those names compared to what we have now lol) and she is a little bit like the last one in many senses.
    Yes someone like Janelle Monae, someone incredibly talented, would be a better fit, but I think we´ll get more of that in other upcoming shows.

    • JOHNVIDAL May 15, 2016

      LOl Why all the thumbs down? Why are people so afraid of facts?

  30. Annalise May 14, 2016

    DYING at NutmegBîTCH having the nerve to continue breathing after the continuous scalping she recieves. KIII at this hœ claiming she had the same hair stylist as prince, when we all know she BEEN bal’ headed!!

  31. Annalise May 14, 2016

    @VanillaSLÜT if you have his number then post it! Otherwise keep your beefsucker wired shut sis!!!

    • Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

      @Annalise, why would I post her number? You’re not fly enough to have her number. Now keep being pressed while I continue to share the same hairstylist as Prince

  32. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    SCREAMING at these hoodrats pressed AF because Prince and I shared the same hairstylist. Don’t get mad, hoodrats. When you get on my level maybe you can afford a celebrity hairstylist

    • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? May 14, 2016

      B**** if u have the same hairstylist as Prince, then me and Beyoncé is going to red lobster for dinner.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Lol! Chile I’m meeting Janet tonight in Dubai for ice cream sundaes!! Kii!

      • Weezy Tha Goat/Zayn Is ? May 14, 2016

    • Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

      Why would I have to prove something to you, a damn stranger on the internet? You’re the one whose pressed because Prince and I share the same hairstylist. I’m telling the truth. Let it go and stop taking things so personally

  34. Annalise May 14, 2016

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      Not @peppekunt!! Lmao.

      You are absolutely right. If someone wants to keep bragging on something, then why not produce some proof. Change your avi to to you and the alleged stylist, post the #, etc.

      But I guess it’s hard to prove lies!!!

      • Annalise May 14, 2016

        Babe I’m literally SCREAMING!! These nutcases on the Internet are something else! Now she’s addressing me as if she knows me personally… I literally can-NOT! How can I feel jealous over lies? ??

  35. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    @Annalise I feel really sorry for you. The fact that you are so pressed that Prince and I share the same hairstylist speaks volumes. I don’t know why this fact bothers you so much. You are the only one on here seems to be bothered by this. You going back and forth with me is not going to change the fact that Prince and I have the same hairstylist. You’re the one being hurt by this and getting upset. I’m telling the truth so I’m not being bothered by thus. I feel sorry for you

  36. Annalise May 14, 2016

    BLAH BLAH BLAH… @SaltyAssBÏTCH Your mind-tricks and diversions aren’t working, I’m still waiting on that receipt ???

    • Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

      Poor thing. I have so much power over you. You’re about to have a mental breakdown because Prince and I shares the same hairstylist and he still disliked Janet and Michael. Don’t slit your wrists

      • Annalise May 14, 2016

  42. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    But you’re the one pressed over a stranger on the internet. My original comment wasn’t even to you. It was to someone else. Poor thing

  43. Annalise May 14, 2016

    That comment doesn’t look like a receipt to me!! o_O

    • Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

      I don’t have to prove anything to you. Keep being pressed and try not to catch an ulcer

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

    • Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

      And Prince still disliked Janet and Michael. Teehee

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Oh yeah. Show the receipts for that as well troll. Let see it.

  45. Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

    Prince would probably roll over in his grave if Janet Jackson did a tribute to him

  46. Annalise May 14, 2016

    o_O I asked for a receipt, which I still don’t see ! HeeHeee!!

    • Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

      And you’re not going to get one because I don’t need to prove anything to you. You will continue to stay pressed while I will continue to know Prince’s hairstylist. As a matter of fact I’m calling to call her tonight. Ha!

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        No I won’t get any receipts because everything you type is a lie moldy puss. And for someone who has nothing to prove you keep stating the same s*** over and over again. So you are trying to convince us all of your nonsense. Girl go rub one out and take a nap. You’re tired.

  47. Annalise May 14, 2016

    That reply doesn’t look like one either o_O LMFAO

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

      Lmao! The struggle. Kii! I guess if she says her mom is a unicorn and her dad Charlie the tuna we should take that at face value too!! 🙂

      • Annalise May 14, 2016

        LMFAOOOO that hœ is the most ridiculous person on here. A few weeks ago she tried to convince us that HEara wasn’t a ‘singer’ and was just a dancer than releases music. LOL any excuse to defend that flop she stans for.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

        Wow. It’s sad but entertaining as hell to watch moldy have a full out break from reality!! Lolz!

  48. Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

    LMAO! The hoodboogers are so pressed because Prince and I share the same hairstylist! Poor things spent their whole afternoon seething over me knowing Prince’s hairstylist. They’re really trying to convince themselves that I’m lieing!This is so amusing

    • Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

      Prince’s hairstylist was like family to Prince. They called themselves the Purple Family. She flew on his private jet, spent time at his home,etc. And you hoodboogers will still seethe. Teehee

  49. Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

    FYI,TGJ, only a few of Prince’s fans object to Madonna. It’s really no big deal

  50. Cinnamonw Girl May 14, 2016

    Hoodboogers will always be jealous, broke and ignorant. Seethe! Lol!

  51. Annalise May 14, 2016

    Why doesn’t that dissertation have a receipt in it @MøldyVagįna/PepperCúńt? LOL and i’m dying atchu talking about anyone being here for a ‘whole afternoon’ when you been here for 8 hours, going on 9! You seriously need some D***!

    btw where’s the receipts?

  52. Anastasia Beaverhousen May 14, 2016

  53. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Stay mad, hoodboogers, while I stay knowing Prince’s hairstylist.

  54. Annalise May 14, 2016

    LOL it’s talking about ‘ignorance’ but can’t even spell it’s own username properly. Next time just type C-Ü-Ñ-T in the name box!


    Oh and where’s the receipt, for the 39200th time?!

  55. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    Poor hoodboogers. Upset over someone knowing Prince’s hairstylist when it doesn’t even affect them

  56. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

    I want to o thank you hoodboogers for keeping me entertained today. Who knew that Prince and We sharing the same hairstylist would cause the hoodboogers to have an epic meltdown?? Lol!

  57. Cinnamon Girl May 14, 2016

  58. Annalise May 14, 2016

    Again, I couldn’t be HAPPIER for you and your non-existent edges… so where is the receipt?

  59. Annalise May 14, 2016

    LOL you clearly don’t have any friends or family that love you, since you need to stay on one post for nearly 9 hours to get ‘entertainment’ on a blog. Glad to know you’re entertainment by your own idiocy! TEEHEE!!!!

    Cool

  61. Den May 15, 2016

    Madonna is going to be amazing, she always is! I’m glad they chose an iconic 80’s pop star to pay tribute to him.

    After all, just recently, Prince arranged a special performance for Madonna when she was in his hometown during her Rebel Heart Tour.

    I’m sure there will be a collaboration of other performers who were influenced by Prince and his music, but say what you will about Madonna, she is the highest grossing pop star in the world and has broken every record in the industry….it’s going to be a great spectacle!!
