Prince's final interview with Rolling Stone emerged in the wake of his untimely death — and the late 57-year-old had choice words for current musicians, specifically Justin Bieber, 22.

“You’re trying to find the personality first, make sure you’ve got that locked in,” he told the publication in 2014. “And it’s better if they got scandal on ’em [sic] or a reality show or sex tape. And they have it down to an art. They’re getting street cred [sic] for Justin Bieber now!”
The chat was part of an interview intended for a cover story, but was never published.
This is ironic, considering Biebs came under fire for making insensitive comments after Prince's passing on April 21 — saying he "wasn't the greatest living performer" on an Instagram comment thread.
