Never before seen footage of Prince reminds us of his critique of media

With his recent passing, Media Burn just released a never before seen profile of Prince from 1984 from a TV pilot called Rocker.  It was produced just after the release of Purple Rain.

It hasn’t been seen in 32 years and features behind the scenes footage and commentary about our favorite ruffly shirt wearing singer.

As one of the few artists to be vocal in his critique of media and copyright use, we share this video with you in the hopes that you’ll remember his excellence as an artist and musician, and his sensitivity and intelligence to the impact media has in our lives.
