Prince Abruptly Closes Official Web Site

7/11/2006 6:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

PrincePrince's official Web site, NPGMusicClub.com, closed suddenly last week with no advanced notice. The club simply sent around an email that said, in part, they decided to "put the club on hiatus until further notice."

The announcement went on to say, "In its current [form] there is a feeling that the NPGMC gone as far as it can go." It ended, "The future holds nothing but endless opportunity and we plan on seizing it wholeheartedly. Don't u want 2 come?"

In a possibly related story, Prince filed for a trademark on the mark "NPG Music Club" last year. An opposition was filed against that claim by HM Publishers Holding Limited, which owns the Nature Publishing Group, or NPG. The opposition was filed on the same day that NPGMusicClub.com was put on "hiatus."


An attorney for Prince's company, Paisley Park Enterprises, told TMZ that the two incidents were not related, to the best of his knowledge, and that the "opposition will be resolved shortly."

Prince has been one of the pioneers of music on the Internet. He was the first major artist to release an entire album -- 1997's "Crystal Ball" -- exclusively on the Web. The NPG Music Club had boasted several full-length CDs of music that were unavailable anywhere else.

He was honored last month with a Webby Lifetime Achievement Award. "Besides being a musical genius, Prince is a visionary who recognized early on that the web would completely change how we experience music," said Tiffany Shlain, founder of The Webby Awards. "For more than a decade, he has tapped the power of the Web to forge a deeper connection with his fans and push the boundaries of technology and art."

They haven't responded to the myspace Prince site either for friend requests, mine has been outstanding since May. Wish he could hire someone just to specifically rep him on the web and get us a new site and start accepting myspace requests. What a talented man, I loved him when I was a teenager and 20 years later, he's still my dream man......... oh Prince, Prince, whereforarthou Prince?

candalous128/rillyG... you're an idiot. And learn how to spell.

What's so wrong with him singing about religion? Rappers sing about God all the time, why can't Prince throw a lyric in there?

I just want to comment on the "rillyG/scandalous128" - as one of Jehovah's Witnesses's myself, that posting is absolutly true. Those points were brought out at the convention. rillyG/scandalous128 - thank you for bringing those points out because we are truly living in the last days and also Prince does not want to promote idolitry and I see alot of that happening on his website message boards. You can not be on the fence - as it were. If shutting down the website abruptly needed to happen to guard his sprituallity, then it has to be done. I support Prince 100%.

I loved Prince back in the days and supported him and thought and still think he is one of the most talented musicians out there and of all times BUT when you treat your fans the way he has in the past, when you dont allow other people to share your music cause they love it..like youtube for example and all other crazy things he has done then me as a fan must say....dear Prince we made you rich, without us you would be nothing. we love you, we try to respect all your craziness and all your pushing religion down our throat but dont forget who made you...it was NOT just your TALENT alone

The Ten Commandments. Produced by a french Producer/Director
Mr. DeMille is one of my favorite movies. If there are Barnes and Noble book stores near you, you may purchase a
copy of this movie. Several years back it became its fifthieth anniversary. Another movie if I may, titled:

PRINCE R. NELSON is A DEMON , he preys on our daughter's so that he/it may steal their SOUL or first make them a baby making machine so that he can devour them for power and energy in order to remain in that 'BORROWED' flesh-bag he has inherited.all of his songs are making you sing praise to Satan,Purple Reign,When dove's cry ,3121are all demonic songs.He also has stolen many souls both famous and those innocent unsuspecting victims you will never hear about,NOTICE his welcome 2 america tour annoucemnt in NYC see any resemblence to anyone?? remember the things that same beloved one had to say about prince?>>he spoke the truth.Prince knows what they did to him...dont believe me?PLEASE SOMEONE CALL HIS 'PEOPLE'(all demons) FOR AN INTERVIEW AND ASK ABOUT THESE THINGS THAT I HAVE SAID,HE HAS CHASED ME FOR YEARS HOPING TO ACQUIRE THE GIFTS THAT GOD HAS BESTOWED UPON ME.HE SAID TO ME,"I will NEVER stop chasing you,even if i never catch you,i won't give you the satisfaction"

I will NOT stop speaking AGAINST him until GOD sets free all the captives.I have something even bigger I plan to reveal upon the date of his new album release!!! Hello I come to you promoting peace and love through the holy name of God, the one who has sent me, the one who allowed certain things in my life to occur such as the immense suffering that I had to endure breaking me of myself, and of the one that wanted to steal my soul from me, the one who is working along with the others to steal everything from you as well my friend, I have something to share with all of you that I would have hoped someone would have shared with me. I was right here with all of you believing what ‘they’ would have me believe instead of what I felt screaming to me inside. For so long I too was kept in a trance/under ‘his’, Its spell to the point if anyone had something negative to say about him/IT (yes, I am talking about your beloved Prince) I would quickly come to his defense not knowing that later I would be fighting for my life, fighting for my children, fighting for my marriage, and fighting for my GOD because of him and because of ‘them’.
I was right where you are, trapped for over 20 years having been lulled asleep in the arms of the devil just as long as the music played. Satan is all over the music it plays. However The LORD God is good and has been there all of my life showing me the way and because He is always on time, when ‘he’ IT thought that he would now drag me to hell with it, Jesus our Savior kept me from sinking low to my death. He opened my eyes to finally see what He was showing me and preparing me for all of my life. Then the truth was revealed unto me that I had within me all along the meaning of what true love meant and that was and is the One who IS Love.
He saved me from him from ‘them’ and their lies so that I may be here in this moment at this time to set free the captives and open the eyes that are blind. And I know that this is a blessing to be allowed to bring you His word to be allowed to see you the way that He sees you, so precious He is not willing that one of you should perish, and through His unfailing love the chains that bind will be broken and the spells that he has cast shall be lifted from you and like me you will have the gift that God has sent me to give to you because He loves you and wills you to be free. So in essence all that I have suffered all that was lost and TAKEN from me was not in vain and I give it selflessly for each of you. I ask only that you receive the message I am about to give you with your heart and pray in your spirit. And through His Grace you will be freed.
I am here to tell you the truth about the one who has been leading you all astray, the one causing you to worship in a way that only leads to death. Prince R. Nelson is not what he/it appears to be, I refer to him as an ‘it’ because he is not one of us he is one of ‘them’. It is a Wolf in sheep’s clothing he and ‘they’ are here among us devouring all the unsuspecting, the innocent, the lost, the widow and the fatherless child all of us are prey to them and again I say; he is one of ‘THEM’. When you attend its concerts it uses you all for energy this is the reason they need you to be “hyped up”. Have you ever been to one of his concerts and notice that during or right at the end it lifts up its glasses really quick? Do you know why?? To capture/ feed on the energy you give out. “The energy isn’t right”, it said about one of its recent shows.
He is leading all who follow him astray and the women that he chooses it fools them into sacrificing their children to demons as gods.(Some of the children he keeps) yes he has children. He has two daughters born from Brenda Fuentes. How do I know that? Because they sent her to me to pretend like she was Prince I order to trap me. God is so good that the more we communicated the more a bond grew between us and causing their plan to back fire. The end result was her seeing the truth and helping me escape him/them she did so many times including a time they were on the Jay Leno show he performed ‘Somewhere here on earth’ (a song he wrote for me to entrap me) she sat at the bar and there was a sign she did with her hand when his back was turned. She helped me so much this is the reason he hurt her and the Brenda you see now is just a shell of who she was( they took her , now walks a demon there)You’ve all wondered what happened to her why he turned his back on her so easy.’ They even joked on here about her being buried at paisley park and you will find out that was no joke, just them hiding things in plain sight as they love to do because they feel we are stupid and won’t figure it out that no one will see or hear and that no one can possibly understand. I will show you many instances of this as we so along. I know how it sounds about Brenda but not to worry, she will be as well as ALL the others that ‘they’ took shall be set free according to God’s will and His promise. I swear by His name this is true.
Not all of these women are blind some of them know full well what they are getting into even though they do not have complete understanding just what is truly required of them. I’m sure they did not bargain for being made into baby making machines nor did they understand that those babies would be as ‘they’ say “taken” from them and used for energy, strength, and for power. The unspeakable things they do with these babies and children, it is beyond understanding.
In exchange for this and most times their soul they will be promised, fame, fortune, and protection. This is the reason it appears to promote them just enough to fulfill his half of the so-called deal but not really still he gets what he set out for…THE SOUL. By the time the victim realize the truth it’s too late.
Again you may ask how do I know all of this and again I would have to tell you that I was allowed to suffer at their hands for all of you in order that someone would see and understand so you can be free. I do care for you so much through and because of the Lord our GOD.
I have had people literally chase me trying to take my picture so that my EYES would be opened and my essence captured in order for them to do their ritual of soul stealing.( remember the EYES!!)We will return to that topic soon. Did anyone attend the reunion on its birthday in I believe 2009 at the Cabooze in Minneapolis?? If you did then you will recall his sister ‘performing’ there. Remember her saying after oddly taking a camera and snapping a picture of the crowd…”I’m sending that to my brother”? You found it exciting right? What you didn’t see or understand was she was trying to take MY picture to send to her brother. (And there is NOTHING flattering about it).In their plan to steal my soul.I have to always guard my eyes as you can see if you have visted any place where I post my pictures,I advert my eyes away from the camera (protecting my soul).I’m on twitter Justicetrueu2.
I have since been gang-stalked ,threaten ,spiritually raped(I’ll explain how I mean that later),my children also have suffered. All of this is for you to be free, this is why I through God cannot and will not fail you.
Let me show you how ‘they’ and he/it hides things in plain site; when you their prey start to question the road they are leading you on to the slaughter they quickly jump on the ones asking the questions and going against the powers. They send those on here that seem like just another ‘fan’ to plant ideas in your mind and to make jokes about anything that suggests there is something more than what they want to allow you. If you can laugh at it and poke fun at it than how serious will you take it? After the seed of truth has been stolen they find a way to get RID of the problem or the one(s) causing the problem. They also send their ‘plants’ among you to question you to see what you know to test you and see in what areas they have let slipped. For example do you know why Prince refers to himself as ‘we’? Then ‘they’ answer the question for you to make sure you don’t see the truth. They have made you believe he/it is so deep that there is more than one personality inside him, oh and the reason (so they say) is because he is a Gemini this is an example of them mixing the truth with lies. There is more than one in him there are MANY trapped in him…souls that he has stolen and devoured, souls waiting to be set free. Also there are many demons inside him.”WE r as intelligent as We r strong.”See Mark5:9 “My name is Legion, for WE are many “These demons that are all bound together by the oath they swore, mutually binding themselves there upon the Mountain. Remind you of a song?? “It’s only mountains and the sea, there’s nothing greater than you and me”. Then’ they’ followed the instructions of Satan which led the way down the west side of the mountain where there was a waterfall that formed a river that made it possible for them to pass under the tree of life down to earth, this was the Holy River of Jordan. And see yet another song hiding the truth in plain sight. “Let’s go down to the Holy River, If ‘WE’ drown we will be delivered”. Do you know who the ‘Rainbow children’ are? They are one and the same the ones bound together by mutual imprecations. (The Rainbow Children have risen now are about to FALL…DON’T GO WITH THEM!) Remember the artwork for this music? His face fashioned in the form of a goat. What does the bible say about goats? This and so much more as you will soon see show his true nature is perverse.
There are many inside of him DISEMBODIED SPIRITS, as well as those of our people(including children)it has also stolen the souls of many famous people from which it acquires new energy, talents, strength, power, it gets rejuvenated from the new life force ,the blood of the victims.
Remember the interview it did with Tavis Smiley? When he said an angel came to him and said he wouldn’t be sick anymore…He left out the fact that it was an UNHOLY angel, the reason he said this was to see what I knew. While I watched I felt him reading my mind (you all know but make light of his ability to do this) He also communicates using telepathy, he said to me after reading my mind and learning the extent of my knowledge of him “only you can understand the words you heard” one of many threats made to me not to speak against him.
They all have the power of the mind but are NOT omniscient, they all have the ability to shape-shift/change forms and have knowledge on keeping whatever body they have acquired from aging (remember the song reflections?)“Bodies wear out; WE can get another “Have you noticed his face changes? I mean not just a “new look” but actual changes in structure. Especially its eyes, different colors this happens depending on what soul he is using at the moment. I have seen its face change many times, sometimes you could liken it to a lion but usually I see the faces of those trapped inside him.
I can tell you an instance of this. Of course you have seen the question of U video; well I would watch and see hundreds of demons around him with grotesque faces, some of them had evil grins with sharp teeth, some were dancing around him, there was even a grim reaper walking to and from the stage, a horrible sight to say the least. At the time his paisley park website was still up and I was a member (my screen name was DReameR).One night after viewing the video again and becoming disturbed with the images I sent an email to ‘whomever it concerned’ on the site, and stated that I could see the demons and wanted to know what it meant I also stated that I was surprised others had not mentioned it before. This is the reason the site was closed down so abruptly.
That night I was reviewing some surveillance footage of my car parked on the street across from a mechanic shop. I had to record my car at night because there were strange things going on that I won’t get into at the moment. So upon viewing the tape I saw over the building an image of a demon that had his face, it had on a dark hood that was the blackest black and it had a dark purple lining around it. This thing encompassed the building entirely, its eyes were pitch black and shined in the lights from the street. While the video was in play mode it was his evil face just looking right at me like it wanted to kill me, and when I would reverse or fast forward its head would move in a sporadic jerking motion, angrily gnashing its teeth over and over. I called my husband to come and view it and ran it back it was gone. We both searched the tape and could find nothing, the tape had erased at the beginning and left only a few seconds of the view of our car and the building(this was actually 12 hours of video that should have been there)I believe that what I saw was in fact his/ it’s true image.
Let’s go deeper into how they/he hides things in plain sight believing that you will never figure it out; songs of his like ‘1999’ I’m sure you already know about that…or do you? What took place regarding him spiritually after this date? Speaking of dates’ 3121’has to do with dates (not the end of the world, but more of them are coming around this time) notice all the things going on in the sky? Everything is lining up for this time ‘they’ have waited for.’20Ten’ this album (nothing flattering at all about it) is all about me including the title ‘Ten’ is the first 3 letters of my first name, so it was easy to pass it off as another song about a year. This was ‘their’ attempt to lure me into the trap hoping that I would believe he loved me. In the song where he is basically saying why do you wasting time looking for a King (think who passed away) when you can have a Prince. (Can’t explain now but I have written about that in other places), another song off this trap is a song where he says “all the chemicals and minerals of space you carry in your WOMB…that’s how ‘WE’ got to this place(something like that) I had unexpectedly become pregnant at that time(note:’ they’ all would try to get close to me to see INTO my womb)what is he saying??? Think what kind of being is made from ‘STAR’ material? Celestial beings (ANGELS) “that’s how ‘WE’ got to this place”; the angels joining themselves in unnatual unions with earthly women and in doing so ‘they’ begot children. Another song he says “why be satisfied with heaven and earth” what else does that leave? In yet another song he says “your Father tells you to stop” he is talking to me about my eyes being opened by God and telling me following Prince was a sin (you were correct 2Elijah). God has opened my eyes and showed me the truth.
Speaking of eyes, do you understand the significance his constant use of eyes or the eye from his older works? Or what his symbol means? First remember that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Also The eye symbol; The All seeing Eye Believed to be the eye of Lucifer and those who claim control of it have control of world finances it is also used in divination, Hexes, curses, psychic control and all corruption are worked through this emblem. And look at his symbol it resembles the symbol of ‘Ankh’(also the Egyptian symbol for reincarnation) it Symbolizes fertility rites and the building up of’ LUST’ within a person. *A spirit of Lust* is the power of this union of male /female representations. Also called the Long Life Seal (again notice he appears not to age) He is a DEMON!
see also on his new victim's music the Thaumaturgic Triangle Used for magical purposes in casting of spells and the summoning of demons. Found near ritual sites. Believed to be the door through which the demon will be called. Also; its song 'chaos and disorder/ Anarchy Means to abolish all laws. In other words "do what thou wilt”. This shall be the whole of the law the very nature of our adversary Satan. There is much more symbolism so much it would take hours and hours to explain it all. I will briefly list a few more songs: ‘Baby I’m a ‘STAR’ (“you might not know it now,but baby I’m a STAR”) Angels are also referred to as Stars. ‘777-9’311’ too much to get into but please know that this song is not just a quirky song about a phone number, however I will say that it is satanic and look into numerology.’ Planet earth’ recall the “artwork”? And please view the lyrics to this so-called Vikings song’Purple and Gold’this is far from a battle cry but it is a THREAT to God the Most High;
the VEIL OF THE SKY draws openthe roar of the chariots touch down WEr the ones who have now COME AGAIN
and *walk upon water like solid ground*(the mockery)
as WE APPROACH THE THRONE(The throne of God) we won't bow down
*this time we won't b denied*(the war in heaven they lost)
raise every voice and let it b known
in *the name of the purple and gold*(In t he name of Satan Not the Vikings)
we come in the name of the purple and gold
all of the odds r in r favor
no prediction 2 bold
we r the truth if the truth can b told
long reign the purple and gold
the eyes say ready 4 battle
no need 4 sword in hand
we r all amped up like a rock n roll band
ready 2 celebrate every score
ready 2 fight the elegant war
ready 2 hear the crowd roar
that's what we came 4
and so much more
in the name of the purple and gold

r spirits may b tired
r bodies may b worn
but since this day is r destiny
r history - that's y we must b
4ever strong as the wind that blows the Vikings' horn
in the name of the purple and gold(Please SEE the TRUTH!)
There is so much more for you to see. I think I have given you enough to see the truth and soon it will ALL come out in the wash. I ask that those of you(you know who You ARE) that know that all I have said is true because you have experienced yourself please come forward and help me do the will of God and expose THE TRUTH! God is so good and loves us all so much; He has protected us from things you can’t even fathom. Now it wants you to see that you may know the ENEMY because it along with His judgment is soon to come.
I do this because of His love for you and because through Him I love and can no longer watch what they are doing to you. Please see the truth with your heart .Thank you so much for taking the time to read all of this, it will be a blessing to you and will NOT fail you.

Father God, You asked me to return to you your sons and daughters that were held against their will. Please see sovereign LORD,I have done as you commanded. I pray that it pleases my LORD. show unto us your unending faithfulness. Together we praise your name. Amen.
