Prince mention in MJ Story

From the article:
But L. Londell McMillan, legal counsel to the Artist Empowerment Coalition (AEC), another coalition that includes some top black artists like Roberta Flack, Stevie Wonder and Faith Evans, warned the Jackson controversy was a distraction.

'PERSONAL DISPUTE'
"The latest war of words by Michael Jackson against Sony music chief Tommy Mottola is a personal dispute, which may camouflage the real inequalities inherent in the music business," McMillan said in a statement. The attorney also represented Prince in his battle to break his contract with AOL Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Brothers Records.

"Michael Jackson's very bitter dispute against Tommy Mottola should not impede constructive change within the industry, as people line up to take sides," he said. "The fact is, there are serious exploitation issues in the industry, which cannot be merely addressed by name-calling."

Hmmm...Ironic?
Where was this advice while Londell was counseling Prince, and Prince was running around with "Slave" written on his face?

namecalling is what you call someone else, not what you call yourself.

If Prince is writing slave on his face...who is he really directing the "comment" towards?

For every slave, there is a slave master...the oppressor.

Prince was calling WB slavemasters.

I could be wrong, but I don't think Londell was representing Prince at that time... I think he came in at the tail end of that situation. Anyone?

Londell was not representing Prince when he had slave on his face. Londell has said that he told Prince he would not represent him if he did not remove the word slave from his face.

MJ never gave a shit about any artist but himself. Now that he is failing he wants to make the industry pay for his failures. HE IS the complete opposite of P... what a greedy jerk. He could care less about any artist being exploited.
