Prince: Remembering the Legend
Today a legend has passed and transcended to the high heavens above in his beloved platforms. I remember the first Prince song I heard, it was Adore Live and my favorite part was the moment he said "you don't know how much you mean to meeeeeee Baaaabbbyyyyyy"....If you're a real Prince fan you know exactly what I'm talking about and if you don't then listen here.
To the only artist who truly mastered the mantra "Know Yourself", to the only artist who could wear leather hot pants and matching platform boots and make you drool. Prince was a fashion icon, a musician, a true artist. Prince you are a rockstar in its truest since. We felt your rage, your love, your passion through every song.
This weekend I am amassing a playlist of Prince favorites , including outfits, songs, and videos. He was the owner of rockstar couture; before Lady Gaga. He was the King of the misfits and the misunderstood. He ever had super powers (Dave Chappelle episode) ....Man, this is truly the passing of a G.O.A.T.
Here's a classic to get us started and a modern take that gives the utmost respect to two greats: Aaliyah and Prince.
