As you may or may not know, Prince is playing the halftime show at the Superbowl this Sunday, and I'm really excited about this. That was until I heard about an injury that may change the fate of Superbowl XXIVWYZ (what Superbowl is this again?) as we know it.
PRINCE MAY NEED HIP SURGERY, Y'ALL!!!!
Sweet Jehovah Cruise, say it ain't so. All that moving, shaking, and twirling that he's done so beautifully over the years has caught up with the immaculate Prince, and while his reps will not confirm or deny if the surgery has already been done, it is out that while Prince's face may still resemble the youthful Prince we knew in the 80's, his hips surely don't lie. Prince is aging. WHY CAN'T HE BE IMMORTAL??? He will still perform at the halftime show, and I'm sure that he won't let the small problem of a busted hip stop him from making it funky, but what will happen to our dear Purple One? He is a Jehovah's Witness, and they don't believe in blood transfusions, and he would need a blood transfusion if he is to have a hip replacement. No...NO! It's all too much for me to handle. But I have faith in our dear, sweet Prince, that he will power through the pain, and hopefully be so delirious from said pain that all this Jehovah's-Witness-no-blood-transfusion-mumbo-jumbo will soon be overshadowed by excruciating pain, and he will then get the surgery he needs. If not, what am I supposed to do with all my Prince themed snacks????
Thanks to David for this story which is truly worth a read.
