Hairball Catching Flak for Prince Portrayal
It can't just be me. Seems people are getting so sensitive about just about everything. It's almost as if people are just looking for something to be offended by.
According to an article on INFORUM.COM, Hairball's lead singer Kris Vox is getting some blow back on his portrayal of Prince at the Minnesota State Fair a couple of weeks ago.
Fox came out and did "Purple Rain" for the fair crowd of around 75 hundred fans of the arena rock tribute band.
What did Hairball's Kris Vox do that upset some people? Well. he had the nerve to come out dressed as Prince but also wearing dark makeup. Doesn't seem to be a problem, right?
Well, to some it was. Some thought just Prince type attire would have sufficed without darkening his skin.
If you've ever seen Hairball, you know, they try to come as close to the artist's appearance as possible. Alice Cooper, KISS, Van Halen and all the other bands they pay tribute to, have distinctive looks..
Personally, I think this is a lot about nothing. People are way too sensitive nowadays.
