(Lauer, from Today Show, MSNBC) Prince believes part of the problem is that young artists are forced to use sex and show a lot of skin because they haven’t taken the time to get a musical foundation.
Prince: “Well unfortunately a lot of kids didn’t learn how to play music. One of the reasons we’re going out on the road and we’re titling this tour as ‘Musicology’ because we want to bring that back. We want to teach the kids and musicians of the future the art of songwriting, the art of real musicianship.”
Lauer: “If a young musician came to you today, what would you tell them?”
Prince: “Well, I’ll just give you an example when I was rehearsing with Beyonce for the Grammys, I sat her down at the piano and I helped her to learn just some simple scales and then tried to encourage her to learn the piano because there’s a language that musicians know that’s a little different than, say, just a singer.”
