Prince insists one thing will remain unchanged when he makes his musical comeback this spring (04) - his private life will remain under tight wraps.

The Purple Rain rocker has long been noted for his aversion to the spotlight outside of performing, and he assures he won't be using his personal life to sell records when he releases his new album MUSICOLOGY, which will be accompanied by a tour.

He says, "People speculate on your personal life all the time anyway, so I just think it's important to keep my private life private and my public persona more into music.

"I'm really a musician at heart - that's what I do. I'm not so mysterious; I'm a pretty open book. People who know my music, I would say know me."
