The Artist Currently Known as Prince

Having made us mighty press types bow down and call him “The Artist,” Prince is ready to let us start calling him Prince again. The Former Artist Known as Prince told a New York press conference that he was inspired to return to his given name after publishing contracts with his old nemesis, Warner Bros. Records, expired Dec. 31.

Said Mr. P: “I will now go back to using my name instead of the symbol I adopted to free myself from all undesirable relationships.”

All righty then.
