How about this? Prince may need a hip replacement. After years of partying like it's 1999, the Purple One is now feeling like he's 99 years old. (He's only 49, by the way, which is weird enough for those of us who remember jamming our air guitars to "When Doves Cry".) Anyway, the word is that Mr. Nelson will be getting some new parts to avoid developing a permanent limp and dependence on a cane. However, he may be hesitating to go under the knife - not because of pride or fear, but because his religion (Jehovah's Witnesses) prohibits blood transfusions. Wait, can't he donate to himself? Isn't that allowed?
Don't know what this means for his ensemble of high heels, which is more than just an affectation for the short-in-stature Prince.
