Mr. & Mrs. The Artist Formerly Known as Prince

EW's GRADE

When the beautiful ones put up the Mr. & Mrs. [The Artist Formerly Known as Prince] Site (http://www. thedawn.com), dedicated to their Valentine's Day nuptials, you just knew it would be awash in purple and lace. But it's also overflowing with pitches for virtually every Princely item available, from videos to CD collections to $375 tour jackets. The wedding program showcases several surreal, supersaturated color photos of [The artist formerly known as Prince] and his bride, Mayte Garcia-[The artist formerly known as Prince], and it reads like a fairy tale written in Paisley Park (''Most understanding of all is Mayte — his true soulmate''). Fans will want to bookmark this one, but others may wonder about the depth of sentiment that's revealed in turning a wedding into a marketing event. C+
