Comment on the Height of Prince

jjjj, true but I meant Prince the rockstar not Prince the insecure kid. Prince made his weakness a strength. Most rockstars are short and petit small frame. James Brown said that to be onstage you need "hair and teeth" nothing about height and someone wrote an article about most rockstars had a big head with a small frame. Watch Lenny Kravitz, Prince, Jagger, James Brown, Sly Stone, Madonna, Tina Turner, Jim Morrison, etc some others like Zappa, Sting, dont look as good as they are more proportioned. Weird and intetesting.

I disagree with the statement that Prince hasn't been insecure about his height. He had a half-brother born the same year as him who looked a lot like him.. but was 5'11". This really ****ed with his self-esteem, that his brother and all of his cousins and friends were growing and he was stuck at 5'2". He even alluded to this in his song "Lady Cab Driver." But I think in the long run this has helped him to create an image as some flamboyant rock idol who's really small yet ****ed a million women, many famous celebrities. And it's helped his stage appearance as well... one could not imagine MJ being thrown into the air and landing in a split, while Prince could easily do this. I'm sure he's at peace with it now.

Prince said "I wear high heels because women love'em" and also because they look good on stage and got the idea from Carlos Santana and James Brown. He also said that The Jacksons wore flat shoes and it never looked right. Prince could dance his ass off with 7 inch high heel boots on which MJ couldnt even had walked!
An insecure guy about his height would hide lifts or use elevators BUT never show off his high heel women shoes.
So he doesnt care about his height.

Prince never came off to me as insecure about his height, guy has dated taller women throughout his career and wore heels as a part of his flamboyant style rather than to give the impression of being taller. Even refers to his short stature in his music.

5'2" is wrong...a friend was at a highlevel at a soind stage in the 80s and had access to his DL...listed him at 4' 11"

Sophie, the height that this website has stated, 5ft 2in is about right. He probably only looked comparable to the hosts on The View thanks to his heels. Prince has publicly stated in media interviews that he has relied on his custom made shoes and "big hair" to give him extra height. Further to this, those who have worked with him professionally have stated that all publicity photographs of Prince have been done on angles that either create the illusion of Prince being taller, or at the very least, are photos in which his height is indistinguishable. While Prince sometimes appears self conscious of his height, at times he also seems to have a sense of humor about it. One magazine interviewing Kylie Minogue, an Australian pop star, asked Kylie about the day she met Prince and reportedly recorded a song with him, which to date has never been released. Kylie stated that Prince said to her that its always nice for him to meet a lady who he can look in the eye. Kylie herself is of a similar height to Prince.

Has anyone ever noticed that he always wore heels and fluffly hair style in his appearances? That could add 15cm or so.

He must always wear high heels, because he never gives me an impression that hes as short as 5'2
Rohan said on 17/Jul/13
He was wearing high heels when he was on The View and still shorter.

Needs an upgrade to 5'4, he is as tall at the hosts of The View .

Prince may not be tall (physically) he surely makes up for it with talent. He can play a multitude of instruments and he can sing his ass off. I saw him face to face do you think I was looking at his height? Heck no, I was checking out his clothes and that gorgeous face.
