The Purple One

In the summer of 1984, My mom & dad went to go see this rock musical drama called, Purple Rain. My mom was very pregnant with me at the time. She says as she watched the movie, When there was a performance or singing of any kind by The Purple One, I would go crazy in her belly. I think I knew even in the uterus that what I was hearing was something quite unique and special. I can only be talking about Prince.

He Transformed just 7 days ago from earth. I have seen plenty of tributes and love from fans all over the world. His music was for everyone. He did Blues, Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz and may I also add that he created the Minneapolis Sound. So versatile. The music that has been left behind is endless. Thankfully we have that. His Fashion style was out of this world. It was quite daring, bohemian and of course what he was known for early on and that was being androgynous. He did all of those and made them look effortless. That is what I loved about him. He played by his own rules in the business part of his music. Which he lost his name at one point and went by the famous love symbol,       theartist and than went by Prince again. I wanted to share a few of my Favorite Songs That he has written(he has written,arranged & produced all of his music, all of it). I also wanted to post some of my favorite fashion moments.

    I was so heartbroken when I heard the news. Another magical musical entertaining genius has left us for the heavens above. I am an avid MJ fan, but Prince was also up there on my list of inspirational people.

    I just watched Purple Rain for the first time a couple of days ago. It was a little weird, but the music and the 80s vibes just spoke to me like a duck to water. I really wish I had to been a teen in the 80s I have serious FOMO about it haha.

    I love the post, especially the fashion, Prince was so eclectic. I also really love Diamonds and Pearls, Cream, When Doves Cry & Raspberry Beret ❤

      Thanks so much. Yes he was truly one of a kind. It’s so strange not to have him or Michael around now. The 80s looked pretty fun I must as well.
