Last night the Billboard Awards bestowed the Icon Award on the one and only Prince Rogers Nelson.
This day and age the word icon is tossed around very loosely, but in my opinion there aren't too many artists that fall into that category. An iconic artist to me is someone who's transgenerational. Someone that old people know their music as well as young people. An icon is a person who not only changed the game, but who's music stands the test of time. I don't know of any artists, maybe artist is too strong of a word to describe the musical acts out today, that fit into the iconic status. But I will say that the Royal Purple One is the epitome of icon.
Prince is an artist in the truest sense of the word. He takes his craft serious and he never compromise as an artist. He is fearless and oozes talent. There is nothing manufactured about him. These musical acts of today could learn a lot from this man.
