Prince Rocks a Fro… Again!

By January 27th, 202133 Comments
When I got a message from a reader today on FaceBook asking my opinion on ‘Prince finally going natural…’, my first thought was- ‘but homeboy had a fro on his first album cover though!’ Thanks to my dad, I grew up on a heavy dose of Teddy Pendergrass, Cameo, Maze,
Sade, Earth, Wind & Fire, P-Funk, Rufus, Confunction, Teena Marie, and of course Prince… to name a few.  So yeah… all I can say is, ‘Welcome home, Prince. Welcome home.’

Prince Rocks a Fro... Again!
2012 swag… today on ‘The View’! #NotMadAtIt

He was on the show to promote his upcoming Chicago shows that will support Rebuild the Dream, a program to restore jobs and economic opportunity. 



 QuestLove’s reaction-

Prince Rocks a Fro... Again!



What’s your reaction?! What do you think?! 

Who’s catching a performance while he’s in Chicago?!


Which artists make up the soundtrack of your childhood?

    Prince does it again! It doesn't matter what the high heel wearing rocker from Mpls does, Prince does it big. Whether he is hosting a series of concerts in Vegas or making an an appearance on a talk show, the artist that is Prince always knows how to turn heads.

  • Mike Lawson says:

    I've enjoyed most of Prince's recordings, and think he's very talented, and even a grossly underrated guitarist. I always knew he was somehow diminutive in stature but I never knew just how little the guy was until I was eating lunch at the Polo Lounge on day in Beverly Hills with a friend, and Prince and his entourage emerged from a back room private dinning area and walked through the restaurant, maybe 12 inches away from my chair. I was amazed to see just how petite the guy was. I mean, his waist must have been in the low 20 inches. Amazing what big and powerful sounds come from such a tiny fellow.

  • Shashou says:

    Wow what a change of style.

  • Suzie CurlMichael says:

    I loved it! I mean if I can love (yes in “that way”) a man that petite, with a relaxer, mascara, and heels, I can love him with a TWA. The only thing better than seeing him was hearing him check Barbara when she tried to label him as a shy, reserved introvert… Nope! He gon’ check you Boo! (She by Sheree voice). L-O-V-E LOVE!

  • M1ssLovely says:

    I LOVE that he is rocking the 'baby fro' as ?uestlove puts it. Ain't nothing more sexy than a man willing to be himself despite what others think he should portray to the media. YOU GO BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • CurvyCurly says:

    Glad it's not just me. It's Prince though, he's definitely gonna do his thang.

  • CurvyCurly says:

    Okay, is that a wig?! It just looks kinda full (sans grey ~ Just For Men o_O) but I guess I'm just used to seeing Prince with weave, no matter what the style or length. But, it's Prince, he can do what he wants; hair, clothes, and by all means shoes!
    I grew up on Prince, Michael Jackson, The Temptations, Diana Ross, Anita Baker, Patti LaBelle, Earth Wind and Fire, and later DeBarge, New Edition, Whitney Houston…..and dozens more!

  • Derika says:

    I dig the fro! I saw Prince in concert back in 2004. It was an experience I'll NEVER forget! I grew up listening to him, Ashford and Simpson, Sade, Lisa Fisher, Mariah Carey (Vision of Love Mariah), Al Green, and Anita Baker. Man this post took me back! Lol

  • PennieNotPenny says:

    At first I was like WHOA, because it was so different than how I'm used to seeing him. (I've never seen that album cover before :P too young! lol) But I like it! It looks great! OMG I hope he grows it big!

  • uiuichui says:

    uh-oh the natural hair community are about to try to hair spam him to lmbo

  • Davina916 says:

    I like it!

  • Dolores says:

    OMG he looks adorable!

  • cecily malone says:

    yep! when i tuned in yesterday to the view to hear Prince's interview with the ladies i automatically began to smile when i saw his fro.

  • Reebie says:

    Jealous! That's once in a lifetime experience.

  • MissT1806 says:

    Prince defines his style!! Really doesn't matter what anyone else says and that's what makes hime so wonderful!!! :)

  • Sownbrooklyn says:

    His name is Prince. And he is FUNKY! Regardless of his hair style!

  • Jeannette says:

    I remember Prince's afro back in the day but it's been over over 30 years. It is taking me some time getting used to it again and I gotta say, I'm not feeling it too much.

  • Elicia Myrieckes says:

    I SO agree with you two–that man can do anything and I will love him-have six 12-30 years and counting and never disappointed. Can't wait to see him and the fro opening night!

  • Aimee says:

    My BFF and I have tickets to his opening night concert in Chicago next Monday and we cannot wait!! Love me some Prince!

  • LBell says:

    THANK YOU. I was just about to post something similar: He could shave his head bald tomorrow and I'd still love him with his cute little self. :)

  • missmajestic says:

    Prince will be stylish no matter what. His straight hair was fly tho. My mom loved her some LUTHA! Maze, and Patti Labelle…yep!

  • Libby says:

    Cool! Love the new look!

  • Jillian says:

    It suits him! I hope he grows it out as big as his 70s fro!

  • Bridget J. says:

    Love it!

  • Monique says:

    LOVE IT!

  • Shavontia says:

    It's Prince!!! That man could wear a long blonde wig and I would still love him. How can you not!! He's probably a secret fan of CurlyNikki and has been getting his hair pressed for years now….well, maybe a Brazilian blowout, cuz that thang was smoooth!! lol
