Prince -- Nothing Compares to P.U.

11/18/2008 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prince is a genius both of the pen and the guitar, not so much of the olfactory.

So says a perfume outfit, which alleges in a new lawsuit His Violaceousness skipped out on his obligation to promote a perfume called 3121. The suit says Prince canceled a biz meeting 15 minutes before it started, and has cost Revelations $100K.

As Bulwer-Lytton put it, talent does what it can -- genius does what it must.

Maybe he heard the business meeting had really tall chairs and he didn't feel like wearing his high heeled go-go boots or his super foamed flop flops so he could climb up on the chair just to attend the meeting.

Or maybe he split his girly tight wearing polyester size 0 frilly pants getting out of the limo and needs a raincheck.

Maybe the blouse he wore didn't have enough ruffles and he got cold feet about being seen in public without enough beautiful perfectly layered ruffles.

Or, maybe he ran out of black mascara.

It could be a million things.

All of these things really need to be seriously considered. LOL

Yeah, I go back to 1978 when all my friends thought he was one of the Sylvers because he had a HUGE Angela Davis-like 'fro. I slowed waaay down when he got into that symbol mess and as someone who voted no on Prop. 8 and has many gay relatives, I'm pretty bummed about religious Prince.

#5 - Dead, LOL

Does anyone know what that perfume smells like anyway?

He couldn't of voted on prop. 8 because of his religion they don't vote so why blame him for it?
