Okay I know it took me a while to get this post up. I wasn’t really sure what to say. So today I just sat down at the keyboard and I’m just going to post what comes into my brain. What can I say about Prince that hasn’t already been said? I don’t know. I do know that his music was an integral part of my childhood. My mom’s best friend’s daughter is a HUMONGOUS Prince fan. When would go to her house she would either be playing him, Madonna, or Janet, but mostly Prince. My parents were very strict so I would never be able to buy his stuff growing up. They’d have had a fit. But thanks to my friend Seveene, I always had somewhere to go to listen to his stuff. As the years went by, I always seemed to run into a Prince fanatic along the way. When I went off to college, it was my roommate. Before that it was a lady I went to church with. One thing I can say about his music was that it always made you FEEL something. Most of today’s music is missing that.
Another thing I always admired about Prince was how he fought to protect his brand. He lived life on his terms and didn’t care what anybody thought about it. I think that’s my biggest takeaway. Live life on your own terms.
