Today is June 7th, a day that in some people’s minds should be declared a national musical holiday. Yes, as Prince fans worldwide know, it’s Prince‘s 55th birthday! Although the converted Jehovah’s Witness no longer celebrates his birthday, we’re willing to get the party started on his behalf. We LOVE Prince over here and we want all the fans who love him as well to hit this page and wish the man a very Happy Birthday.

And take a minute to vote on our Prince polls and to check out some of the content that Prince can’t restrict from the web (because he doesn’t own the footage.) This year, Billboard honored him with it’s Icon Award and it was well deserved. As arguably the most bootlegged artist of all time (he was bootlegged before technological advances made it super-easy to do so) he deserves to control his own work. Well, some folks thing he should give it away for free like other artists, but hell, he’s royalty. He can do what he wants.
Prince, we LOVE you and even if you don’t celebrate we want to wish you a very happy born day. We hope it’s as amazing and wonderful as you are. Hit the comments and send Prince your Happy Birthday wishes, vote on our Prince polls and check out his Billboard Music Awards performance below.
