Synopsis:

Drawing upon hundreds of interviews and using many sources unavailable to others, author Alex Hahn has created a page-turning biography on one of the most dynamic, talented, and controversial performers ever to don backless pants on national television. Possessed unveils the psychology of this tortured, messianic artist whose ceaseless reinventions have at times rendered him a profoundly original artist, while at other times threatened to become a mockery of himself and his music. Recollections from friends, employees, sound engineers, journalists, and industry insiders place readers right in the middle of some of Prince's most awe-inspiring recording and song writing sessions. They also relate, in often shocking detail, Prince's most publicized relationships with Kim Basinger, Carmen Electra, Vanity, Apollonia Kotero, and many more; reveal how Prince plagiarized band members' musical ideas; and explain why he has become such an isolated figure.
