Published Feb 25, 2008At the tender age of 49, the artist once formerly, and now solely, known as Prince is having a hip replacement, The Daily Swarm and several news agencies have reported.
According to reports late last week, the U.S. pop star, whose full name is Prince Rogers Nelson, now uses a walking stick to get around after developing a severe limp due to his hip problem. As a result, he has booked himself into a private hospital where he will have the ball and socket of his damaged hip taken out and titanium replacements cemented in.
The "lovesexy singer has reportedly cleared his schedule for the next two months for his pint-sized frame to recover.
According to someone who really could be anyone known simply as "source, "For months Prince has complained of pain every time he moves. He is totally crushed as he knows he will never be the same again.
Also, several news outlets, such as Showbiz Spy, have quoted a legal expert as saying, "The op wont stop him dancing. But if he does anything too vigorous for example the splits the new joint may become displaced. We are not sure what a legal expert really knows about dancing, medical operations or the splits, but its good to know some reporter out there looked for some kind of authority to give this story some weight.
