Relatives object to genetic testing
Twp people claiming to be Prince's heirs have objected to the blood and genetic test required by anyone claiming to be a relative of Prince. Brener Trust has been authorized to demand any and all claimants to undergo blood and genetic testing to verify a relationship.
The claimants in question are Brianna Nelson, the daughter of Prince's half-brother Duane Nelson and Jeannine Halloran, the adult guardian of Brianna's minor granddaughter Victoria.
The both claim they have already offered alternative proof of blood relationship to Prince.
After all the anticipation of how Madonna would do paying tribute to the late great Prince the majority have let there feelings be known and it's not good.
Let's review Madonna's performance.
With repeated promoting throughout the Billboard Awards by both the host and announcer, this was sure to be a great tribute. After having to wait till the end of the show to finally see Quest Love standing alone to deliver what was a heart filled expression of what Prince meant to him on a personal level it seemed that the show was right on track on what Prince fans were hopng for. Well, to put it lightly the show wasn't all it was hyped up to be. Madonna, although I'm sure her heart was in the right place gave a lack luster performance that is sure to go down as a disappointing display of tribute to one of the best performers to ever grace the stage. A story from the heart, a song personally written for what was claimed to be a good friend or a little bit of heart behind her vocals would have done wonders. Let's just keep our fingers crossed and hope the upcoming award shows respect what he has done for music and honor Prince accordingly.
The Billboard Awards have scheduled Madonna to do the honors of paying tribute to Prince. Petetions aside ( even though signed by thousands ) the show will go on. During the glorious fame of the 80's for Prince there were only a few artist that could come close to Prince, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springstein and Madonna. Although a lot of this would be argued that it was due to the record labels ability to dictate what is played on the radio. All we can do now is brace ourselves for the outcome to be respectful, creative and hope she don't try to sing a Prince song. Now, I know a lot of our Purple family won't be watching, I'll take one for the team and post the results.
