Prince Is Taking Over 'The Arsenio Hall Show' (Video)

Prince is staging a takeover of “The Arsenio Hall Show.”

The artist formerly known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince will serve as the sole guest on the March 5 edition of “The Arsenio Hall Show,” performing a number of songs and sharing his 2014 with Hall.

The announcement was made in appropriately eccentric form, with a Prince lookalike delivering an envelope containing the news, which he made Hall read himself. (Hopefully, Prince himself won't be so tight-lipped during his interview with Hall next week.)

“Just say the word and we will bring our whole crew over to your place and do a performance you will never forget,” Prince's message read. “Just in case you haven't heard, I've been practicing, and I've gotten pretty good now.”

    Do you know why jobs
    continue to leave liberal states for conservative ones? Because conservatives
    and conservative states are business friendly. As long as black people continue to complain about life
    (just like Arabs continue to complain about America) they will continue to
    suffer, leave their families, drop out of school, not accomplish much, and not
    focus on being successful.

    Facts:Obama Admin request airspace approval from Libya to help our guys.Security
    Team is delayed at airport, they had to fly into an airport and try to find a
    ride to the embassy/CIA. Backup teams in place and ready to react.Nothing
    happens, our guys get slaughtered.

    Obama dispatches propagandists for 2 weeks on morning shows to cover this up
    and blame on video – because he knows this would not be acceptable to the
    American people.My Conclusion: Libya did not grant airspace approval, we
    did not want to offend Libyans or cause possible civilian casualties so we sacrificed
    the lives of our guys. We also did not provide adequate protection when we knew
    or should have known it was not enough to begin with. And we have not done
    anything about it until this date.

    – WTC Bombing – 50,000 people would have died because of no escape from the
    stairwell (18 people actually died) ; 2 African embassy bombings around 96/97 –
    many people died, mainly Africans ; USS Cole attack in 2000 – Clinton did
    nothing about any of this accept fire tomahawks from 800 miles out (that is all
    he would ever do) – several sailors dead. Al Queda was emboldened because of
    Clinton’s weak responses – this led to 9-11 and Bush hammered them unlike Al
    Gore would have ever done.
