Is There Any Artist Who Can Do a Prince Tribute Justice?
Written by Tamara M. on 24 May 2016
By most accounts, Madonna’s Prince tribute flopped. Like, flopped big time. Even BET got in the mix and threw some shade at the diva for her lackluster performance. The network tweeted, “Yeah, we saw that. Don’t worry. We Got You,” suggesting that their June 26 tribute is going to do the legendary, prolific, genre-bending, non-conforming, superstar artist some justice. This begs the question: Is there any artist who can do a Prince tribute justice?
Prince was in a league of his own, with a style of his own, with a stage presence of his own, with a catalogue all of his own. Oh, yeah, you can’t forget the unforgettable eye cuts, eye rollings and mannerisms. At this point, is it just disrespectful to have somebody try to step into Prince’s platform shoes? If there’s somebody who can do the artist justice, who is it? Sound off and #TellUsHowYouReallyFeel
