Several artists reacted to comments from Prince saying that he believes covering songs without an artist’s permission and blessing should be illegal. “I understand where he’s coming from,” ‘American Idol’ alum Adam Lambert said. “I mean, he’s Prince. I think he can get his way. But there is something to that, because as artists and writers, we create these songs and we have this passion and vision for it. Then the minute someone covers it, you run the risk of it either being great or falling apart.”
