As you’d expect, the web is alive with opinions and theories on the Prince cancellation yesterday. One poster on the Prince fan site Housequake has pointed out that Prince himself is contractually forbidden from commenting, so cannot defend himself against implications that he personally was behind the cancellation.

I’m deliberately not linking to these posts (and will remove all such links from any comments which follow), as some of the related material is difficult to substantiate, and I’d imagine there are a lot of legal teams standing by in the wings.

By the way, in the interests of balance, I asked a spokesperson for MCD for a comment on some of the other allegations raised by Housequake and was told they were “a pile of shite”.
