Frustrated With Fans, Prince Recorded a Diss Song

Frustrated With Fans, Prince Recorded a Diss Song

'PFUnk' is meant to express how frustrated Prince towards 'fans' who use his name for seconds of fame.

Prince has made headlines in the past few days for his decision to sue any websites that uses copyrighted images of him. However, he does not want to be mistaken for shutting down his fan sites that claimed to have done nothing but to promote his music.

"The action taken earlier this week was not to shut down fan sites, or control comment in any way," read a statement from concert promoter AEG yesterday. "The issue was simply to do with in regards to copyright and trademark of images and only images and no lawsuits have been filed."

Three fans sites have combined forces as 'Prince Fans United', calling Prince's action as a violation of freedom of speech. John Giacobbi, managing director of Internet policing specialist Web Sheriff said the case is "not freedom of speech" but rather the one "between Prince's record label and three unofficial Web sites"

As a sign of frustration, Prince has recorded a song titled 'PFUnk' which can be heard here. Within the lyrics, Prince sings "The only reason you say my name is to get your fifteen seconds of fame/nobody's even sure what you do/I don't care what people may say/I ain't gonna let it ruin my day".
