Prince: A Tribute to My First Crush

His essence was music.

He didn’t DO music. He WAS music.

Today, music lost its heartbeat.

He showed us what freedom could look like and he made it FUNKY.

He was my Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Jimi Hendricks or dare I say… Marley?

Baby, baby, baby... He invented the smoky eye in 1984!

Controversy ensued between my mother and I about that poster, that album, that man. I often wondered if I was your girlfriend

He was a sexy mutha (shut your mouth!) even in those high heels and jumpsuits. Mom, I see why… now.

He created a soundtrack of my childhood. In my mind, it was a PURPLE revolution.

There will never be another one like him.

My God, there will never be another one like him!

I adored him even when he had no name.

So grateful for that.

It’s time to rest…

in the after world

A world of never ending happiness
You can always see the sun, day or night.
