My mom is devastated right now and I was the one who broke the news to her. Never really was a fan of Prince but I know he was a very talented musician, doves are crying right now and so is the world crying purple tears and it's even been raining where I live.

I was never a Prince fan, but nobody deserves to die that young.

Look him up, trust me you'll love yourself for it and then you'll understand why people are mourning.

The NFL tweeted his 2007 Super Bowl XLI Halftime show. The greatest one ever..

An unbelievably talented musician, singer, arranger.. He could play just about any instrument.. No normal human can be so talented..

He was a crazy guy for sure.
His team of lawyers once sent Wierd Al a telegram telling him not to make eye contact with Prince during an award show.


Very likely due to Prince being no fan of Weird Al's accordion-polka versions of "1999" and "When Doves Cry"--
The relationship between the two were always a bit strained after that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD4rYdK3y9A

There were also very likely commitments that famously kept him from participating in USA For Africa with Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones and all the rest, but at the time, we took it to be more selfish assery.


I've also heard that he would tell his girlfriends to put on make up before getting in bed with him.


Oh, anyone who's seen his videos, or Purple Rain, or his other weird self-directed vanity "movies" knows he could be a bit....misogynistic, if you know what I mean.
And I Think You Do. He wasn't exactly subtle about that, either.

Yes. He was more revelant in the 80s-early 90s, but definitely one of the greats.

He's most remembered though for Purple Rain and its billion hits back in 84-85

Due to his particular love of stunt-shock (for above reasons), he.......did not make himself easy to warm to, compared to more mainstream musicians.
