New Memoir Reveals Prince ‘Cheated’ Bassist Out Of Millions


For Mark Brown, the head games began with a cold call from Prince in 1981. And they ended, six years later, with the bassist — rechristened BrownMark, by Prince — confident that the rock star had derailed him out of millions in songwriting royalties.

As related in BrownMark’s new memoir, “My Life in the Purple Kingdom” (University of Minnesota Press), playing with Prince was the best of times and the worst of times — often at the same time. Like when he was cast in the movie musical “Purple Rain.”

“I took drama classes, joined SAG and acted in the movie,” Brown, 58, told The Post. “Then all my scenes were cut. Prince came up with some lame excuse about having to make the movie shorter.”

Before the fast talk and subterfuge, there was that unexpected call. Brown, then 19, took it in the Minneapolis rec center where his funk band rehearsed. “The first thing that went through my mind was that it couldn’t be Prince,” Brown said. “It was surreal.”

Is Eminem Obsessed With Mariah Carey?

After allegedly being concerned that Mariah Carey was going to spill all the intimate details of their relationship in her upcoming memoir, the songstress revealed that she does not talk about the Real Slim Shady in her book.

Carey’s new memoir, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey,” will drop on September 29th, and already, she’s hyping up its release. Much ado has been made about the fact that she might be addressing her brief fling with Eminem — to the point that the “Vision of Love” singer had the “Kim” rapper allegedly “worried” about what she might reveal.

#NewMusic Mariah Carey - Save The Day

"Save the Day" is the first release from Mimi's double-disc archival deep dive The Rarities (Oct. 2), which comes hot on the heels of her memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey (out Sept. 29).

With heartfelt, affecting vocals delivering a timely message ("We're in this together"; "it's curious, the fear still holding us down"), a few classic Mariah high notes and a sick beat drop courtesy Jermaine Dupri that accompanies the entrance of Ms. Lauryn Hill's voice (sampled from the Fugees' Grammy-winning "Killing Me Softly With His Song"), "Save the Day" is pure MC goodness.

What Happened To The Fugees?

Some of the most painful feuds emerge from once-close relationships, including the bitter dispute that led to the breakup of The Fugees, one of the greatest artistic collaborations of the past several decades. The group's second album, The Score, was a massive hit, a timeless masterpiece that straddled the borders between rap, hip-hop, R&B, and rock.

A third album never arrived. Lauryn Hill temporarily left the group before The Score's 1996 release, most likely due to her turbulent romantic relationship with bandmate Wyclef Jean, who was married. The next year, Hill started seeing Bob Marley's son, Rohan. She became pregnant and, according to Jean's memoir, lied to him about the child's paternity.
