Yep. He’s on to the name change thing again.
Interestingly, he’s not as wacko as I thought. The name change to “the symbol” was actually a way for him to get out of his contractual obligations as “Prince”. By being a logo instead of a name he was able to release albums with Arista records while he waited for the contract between “Prince” and Warner Bros. to expire. Pretty creative.
