I’m not usually one to ponder; reminisce over a ‘celebrity’ death … but as you’ve probably figured out … i’m having an extra long moment for Prince.
I grew up listening to this dude … in amongst other genres of music … but this dude … well …
Aside from being a sincere musical genius … vocally; instrumentally … he was way ahead of his time in terms of breaking gender stigmas … stereotypes … things considered to be ‘taboos’ or norms, of that time.
For someone trying to ‘find’ their place in a fucked up world … a dude like this, was essential. He was revolution for that time.
He basically didn’t give a fuck … he just did his thing.
And that more than anything else … is what I appreciated the most.
His music will always be my music ❤

119. Words to live by 😉 thanks dude.
Princes music has been hotly copywriten and have always been taken down from YouTube moments after they go up … and fair enough I say … but at the moment his music is blowing up … and I am hell’ah enjoying! So before this possibly gets taken down … another one of my all time favs with Sheena E ❤

‘ This is August 2, 1990 sound check Osaka Japan. I spent six years of my life working for, creating with and laying the foundation for the rest of my career with Prince. Long nights, remote parts of the world and creative growth beyond my wildest dreams. This may not be the Prince you think of but it is the Prince I knew. Those years were and will always remain the highlight of my career. Thanks for the good times RIP Kid. ‘
He is a musical genius…and his music speaks for itself ❤
I prefer to think that he ‘transitioned’.
This dude was waaayyyy ahead of his time ~
Peace Out xo ❤
My forever favourite jam ❤
