Only Prince would have his ex girlfriend to present him with his award while he’s with his new girl ;-; 

Plus he had Carmen Electra dancing for him who he also dated a few years earlier, Prince was on some pimp type shit that night

—Hello

welcometothedawn:

Hello was the B-Side of Pop Life with Jill Jones on the backing vocals.  

Hello, hello, hello, hello

Hello, hello, hello, hello

I tried to tell them that I didn’t want to sing
But I’d gladly write a song instead
They said okay and everything was cool
'Til a camera tried to get in my bed

Hello, my bed, hello, hello

I was sittin’ pretty with a beautiful friend
When this man tries to get in the car
No introduction, ‘How you been?’
Just “Up yours, smile, that’s right, you’re a star!”

You call ‘em bodyguards but I call ‘em my friends
I guess I’m used to havin’ ‘em around
And cameras by nature like rewards
That’s the trouble I get when I’m uptown

I’m not afraid to die
(Don’t be afraid)
Oh no, there’s a better place
(‘Cause there’s a better place to go)
I eat what I want
(You can eat what you want
Whole wheat toast
(Anything is cool in moderation)
And I’m happy, and that’s for sure

We’re against hungry children
Our record stands tall
There’s just as much hunger here at home
We’ll do what we can if y’all try and understand
A flower that has water will grow
And the child misunderstood will go

Hello
Hello
Hello
Hello

Everybody, we’re against hungry children
Our record stands tall
There’s just as much hunger here at home
We’ll do what we can if y’all try and understand
A flower that has water will grow
And the child misunderstood will go
Our record stands tall, you know
Give us time and love will show

Hello
Hello
Hello
