What's the matter with your life
Is poverty bringing U down?

I posed this on a FB group a while back. Mostly Twitter and instagram statements from celebrities right after Prince passed.

When talking about the time Gr...ith Prince yesterday, Adrian Quesada emphasized that the artist was hysterically funny.

“It was just never a dull moment and that’s just how he lived his life,” he said.

Prince was a genius, and the world caught on to his phenomenal talent and unique vision when he was still a teenager. Consequently, his sense of reality was very unorthodox and “he truly had this magic around him,” Quesada said.

He was cognizant about the colorful mythology that swirled around his eccentric mystique and he riffed on it.

“He liked to play games and be funny,” he said.

Amma Asante

https://www.theguardian.c...t-obituary

What I’ll remember of him, apart from the great music, is how much of a gentleman he was, how kind he was, what a good human being. I was one of many artists that he reached out to, who he knew he could have an impact on. And he was a real feminist – he worked with so many amazing women. I felt really grateful to be one of those who he reached out to, knowing he really didn’t have to. I feel like we use that word genius sometimes all too often, although for Prince it was undeniable. We lost someone really special that we’re definitely all the better for having, but I didn’t expect to meet him and then lose him so quickly.

Elisa Fiorillo

Singer-songwriter

It’s been a really rough couple of days.

I had DM-ed Prince to see how he was last Friday when it was reported that the flight he was on had taken an emergency landing. He wrote back and said “I’m perfect. save your prayers. #controversy”.

I said “if you’re not feeling well you need to rest!” That was the last i heard from him.

We were friends for 26 years.

We first worked together on my first album at Paisley Park when I was a solo artist signed to Chrysalis Records and he got me to do backing vocals on Graffiti Bridge and Diamonds and Pearls.

Twenty years later, in 2009, I was in real estate.

He contacted me after seeing a clip I put on YouTube and said,

“You should still be singing,” and asked me to join his band.

Being in the band, he expected perfection every night and if you didn’t do it you got to hear about it.

He wanted everyone to be the best – that’s what was so special.

He was a great teacher.

But the biggest lesson he taught me was to put my family first.

He asked me to go on the road with him when my daughter was three but he said:

“I don’t want you to be away from her too long, I want you to take her to swim lessons.

So we’ll go for shorter periods of time and if it’s going to be a long one then I’m not going to take you.” I know he always wanted a family. But his family was a band. He felt most comfortable near us.

His mind was always going, 24/7. He’d want to stay up till all hours and never sleep. I’d say: “You’re so thin. You need to eat.” And he’d joke back: “You need to lose weight!”

He wasn’t being harsh, he cared – he just wanted everybody healthy.

We’d do a show and then he’d want us at a club at 2am.

So many aftershows would go on to six in the morning. People would chant in the audience, “Six in the morning!” My poor feet!

For the audience, witnessing his presence, his charisma, his control, his talents in every instrument, people couldn’t believe it.

A lot of people would say he’s like something from another planet.

He didn’t even read music which was crazy. Sure, he eventually learned chord structure and all that, but he wasn’t a reader, note by note. He just knew music instinctively; he played with his heart. He was such a great guy. I’m going to be very sad for a very long time.

Shonda Rhimes on Dancing With Prince at the White House

"Stevie sits down at the piano and starts playing Stevie Wonder music, with Prince basically backing him up. And there was this great moment when our eyes met, and he mouthed, 'Oh my god, can you believe this is happening?' There he is, playing under this portrait of George Washington and he's backing Stevie Wonder up. It was the last time I saw him."
