Prince - Prince: My fans aren't 'satisfied' by other music

Prince insists his fans stick by him because they are ''not being satisfied elsewhere by musicians''.

The 'Purple Rain' hitmaker believes his supporters have been ''changed'' by his music and thinks they stay loyal to him rather than go and see another musician because he always sings live rather than resorting to lip synching during his gigs.

He said: ''People come to see us 50 times. Well, that's not just going to see a concert - that's some other mess going on.

''This music changes you, These people are not being satisfied elsewhere by musicians, you feel what I'm saying? It's no disrespect to anyone else, because we're not checking for them. But we don't lip synch. We ain't got time for it.''

The 55-year-old star admits his solo career has taken a backseat in favour of his new all-female band 3rdEyeGirl - who he is currently on tour with - because he is desperate to get the ''talented'' group's music heard.

Speaking to V magazine, he added: ''I'm trying to get these women's careers started, because they're all so talented. It's not even about me anymore.''
