16 July 2004

“I have a responsibility to (young fans) to perform in a manner that I would like my children to be performed in front of,” he says in an interview to air Tuesday on CBS News'”The Early Show.” Prince, who has written songs such as “Gett Off,””I Wanna Be Your Lover” and “Kiss,” says he’s moving away from the explicitly erotic lyrics of the past. “I just want to be the best human being I can be … on stage and off,” he says. Excerpts of the interview were released in advance.The 46-year-old singer-songwriter is listed as the No. 1 “greatest rock frontman” of all time, beating out Mick Jagger and Robert Plant, in the August issue of Spin magazine.Prince earned a 10 out of 10 for sex appeal, in a vote of editors, and kudos for singing like an “oversexed elf.”
