The artist formerly known as “the artist formerly known as prince”

Standard

The man was a musical genius but more the that.
When he couldn’t get out of his contract with warner he changed his name to the symbol.

symbol?

“He couldn’t get out of his contract, but he could change his name to an unpronounceable symbol, largely to mess with them. Journalists started to call him “the artist formerly known as Prince,” but in 2000 he went back to Prince when his Warner contract expired.”

Now to understand how it messed with them every legal document for court would require his legal name written multiple times and the computers and typewriters of that time couldn’t make that symbol.
So for every document someone would have to go through and hand draw it, plus any changes to a legal document needed to be notarized and any missed part and the document would need to be redone.
Great way to piss off the people who pissed  him off.
So It Is Fair Well To A Great music maker as well as a great thinker.
As always thanks for reading.
