Prince's commanding half-time show at the Super Bowl has seeded a spike in searches for stats about His Purpleness.
No 1 query, according to Yahoo! Index Buzz: How old is Prince?
No. 2? How tall is Prince?
He is 48, according to his Wikipedia page.
Which means this photo is nearly life-sized.
At Phawker, rock snob Ed King writes:
I dont recall when the Halftime Show as Cross-Generational, Cross-Marketing Rock Extravaganza began, but its always been a reason to bear witness to the last desperate breaths of rock legends (McCartney, The Rolling Stones), hate foreigners trying to upstage our national holiday (U2 and Bonos American flag-lined leather jacket), or fully understand the impulses that led a Fat Elvis to aim a shotgun at his TV set. Even the opportunity to catch a glimpse of past-its-expiration-date naked silicone boobie was a bomb. What were the odds that Prince, in the third year of his not-yet accomplished comeback campaign, would do any better?
I'd take those odds. So would King.
