On February 25, 2008 the shortest sex symbol known to man decided to get his hip replaced. As the created of the Hateonbeyonce blog puts it, "Prince has bad hip joints?!!! "He used to wear high-heeled boots every day and doctors told him that may have contributed to his condition," said a source. I hope he turns out fine after the surgery. A friend of mine dad got hip replacement surgery and now he walks with a crutch, but prior to the surgery, he got around fine. We will see......". This person is also the creator of the Celebhaterez blogspot.
Recently, the real buzz on Prince is that his much reported hip problems of the past have now turned into need for a double hip replacement.
Unfortunately, thanks to his practice as a Jehovah’s Witness, Prince still refuses surgery. JW’s don’t believe in blood transfusions.
“He’s in a lot of pain,” said a source who was backstage with him last night at the Apollo. “He’s popping pain killers and hoping it will all go away.”
But it won’t. Back in 2005 reports surfaced that Prince needed one hip replaced. He declined. Then again in 2007 and 2008 came more reports that he’d finally agreed to “secret surgery.”
Now the diminutive R&B star is walking with a diamond-studded stick to keep him upright. It’s the same stick I saw him with two nights ago at a post-Tony Awards bash. I’m sure he’d rather have a Raspberry beret or a little red Corvette, but for now Prince is stuck with the stick.
The question is: if it gets worse, will he go to a wheelchair?
