Prince (The Artist Formerly Known as) (1958 - )

Prince Rogers Nelson (born June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American musician. He performs simply as Prince, but has also been known by various other names, among them an unpronounceable symbol, leading fans and critics to dub him "The Artist (Formerly Known As Prince)", occasionally abbreviated as "TAFKAP".

In 2006 Prince was voted 'sexiest vegetarian' in the PETA poll. This seems to have been based on the liner notes from a 1999 album indicating that he was vegan at that time, but some reports suggest that he was no longer even vegetarian by 2006.... At some point he became a Jehovah's Witness and this may have influenced him to return either to vegetarianism or fish-eating.

There is much confusion in various online reports...
