It’s a known fact that you should generally stay away from covering Prince songs, but that hasn’t stopped American talk-show host Jimmy Fallon from singing one of The Purple One’s tracks with his Tonight Show band The Roots, which hasn’t gone down too smoothly.
Despite Fallon being a huge fan of Prince, his (probably lip-synched) performance of the 1984 Prince And The Revolution song ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ at today’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York has come off, well, a little crazy.
As Complex points out, a number of Prince fans have taken to Twitter to share their disapproval…
The Roots are allowed to cover Prince. More than allowed. Jimmy Fallon is not.
This discussion saddens me. I’ve heard Jimmy Fallon say incredibly respectful and loving things about Prince. And I just can’t see him having a racist bone in his body. No he can’t sing, can’t we just leave it at that?
