what song is that a quote from? I can't remember 'One Song' completely...is this from that song? If so, I'm glad b/c hopefully it means Tyka and co are going through the vault. That plus the comment about 984 songs and counting...

So so sad...but it was nice how aggressive and emotional she was. She spoke for all of us.

Hope this puts to rest the absurd idea that Prince's sister/family had Ill intentions towards Prince before he died. The end of the speech damn near got me crying. It's obvious she still hurts from her brother's death. Congrats to Prince on his win. Perfect time to drop Prince4ever.

I was at my trauma nurse night job in the middle of craziness and I stopped what I was doing to see the results and Tyka's speech...can I tell you I started to tear up and folks thought I was crazy but they know my love for all things Prince. I am so relieved to know that Tyka is actually going to be a great spokesperson/keeper of the flame. No matter what we've heard, she and the rest of the family are our connection to the man and music we love and I'm thankful that for the time being, it seems his legacy will be kept alive and she seems very capable to articulate what we all feel.

If Purple Rain Deluxe sells really well it's entirely possible it could also win Best Soundtrack again next year!

How can you tell with all that hair hanging in front of her face and those weird glasses? However, as someone else here said, she does have some of her brother's "swagger"... And she lost that at the end when she got all emotional. Nothing wrong with that, she's only human.
Also, doesn't the "984 songs" sound suspiciously close to the year Purple Rain was released? hmmm
The world is as you dream it.

Really nice to see that, thanks for the link!

Since the first time i found out that Prince had a sister, like, back when she released her first album, i always thought her name was pronounced (tike-ah).

They intruduced her as (tick-ah).

Is that correct?

Tyka

Well deserved award!
