Prince disses Madonna, Maroon 5

New York, Jan 27 (ANI): Prince has blamed Material Girl Madonna in part for his decision to end his 20-year relationship with his record label Warner Bros.

According to him, Madonna was getting all the promotion, even as Prince was doing all the work.

"She was getting paid, but at the same time we were selling more records and selling out concerts on multiple nights," the New York Daily News quoted him as telling 'Billboard'.

Prince also had choice words for Maroon 5, who covered the singer's hit song 'Kiss' on their album 'Overexposed.'

"I do pay performance royalties on others' songs I perform live, but I'm not recording these songs and putting them up for sale," he said.

He also doesn't approve of Maroon 5's version of his song.

"Why do we need to hear another cover of a song someone else did?" he said. (ANI)
