BITTERSWEET CELEBRATION

A big day today …. Prince would have turned 58 years old.

Yet, he’s gone …. gone too soon.

From a Facebook Member, Josie Fletcher … had to share! 
Prince isn’t dead … he just hopped on his “Little Red Corvette” … with his “Raspberry Beret” … drove off through the “Purple Rain“, over “Graffiti Bridge” … under the “Cherry Moon“, partying like it’s “1999” … because this is what happens “When Doves Cry“!!

Rest in Purple Power!

 Synopsis
Prince was born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Prince’s early music career saw the release of Prince, Dirty Mind and Controversy – all of which created controversy due to their fusion of religious and sexual themes. He then released the albums 1999 and Purple Rain, cementing his superstar status with No. 1 hits like “When Doves Cry” and “Let’s Go Crazy.”

A seven-time Grammy winner, Prince had a prodigious output that included later albums like Diamonds and Pearls, The Gold Experience and Musicology.

From a dear Facebook Friend

My Take …

This artist did a lot (silently) for charity ….
He fought the Record Company and won ….
He was loved by many ….
His hometown loved him ….
Helped many artists ….
Helped many young people ….
Amazing Talent ….
…. HE wanted to be private ….
So …. for TMZ, tabloids …. I don’t care what drugs he was taking.

And don’t speculate  ….

ALLOW HIM his privacy ….

Plenty of normal people die.

They have been eating themselves to death every day, take prescription drugs for pain and sleep.

Many smoke themselves to death.

Many just lay around and abuse their body.  We don’t report on them ….
Leave Prince alone.

Rest In Peace, Prince.

Thank you for the great music …. and so much more.
