Prince the Gemini and Twins

Well not only was he a Gemini the Twin, but his mother was a Twin as well...

An extremely prevailing image and ideal in Prince's utopiac world throught his career

The Dual nature of things, Black & White, Dark & Light

His mother (and Aunt)

his reflection in his earlier proteges (and band members)
the Melvoin twins

the twin -likeness of Diamonds & Pearls

The McLean twins

It permeated his work like the numbers he was fond of. Always loved that he was a complex character and nearly everything he did had layers of meaning.
Baby, you're a star.

One of my sets of twins are Gemini sons...quite an adventure to put it mildly... rolleyes lol

.

Let's not forget P had tried that twin illusion as far back as SheliaE and Cat...In fact, with P cleanshaven, there's almost a triplet-ness to them...

6988a31cfdc3f29556690a0d439eab0f.jpg

Diamond and Pearl usedta annoy me because although they were supposed to give the illusion of twins, they never did for me cuz I knew they weren't and it felt forced...

Just my personal idosyncrancy...

I liked when he nailed it with the adorable Aussie twins, Maya and Nandy, though...

I swear Cat looks like she could be Andre Cymone's twin here ^

I've seen a few pictures where it looks like Cat represented a wilder side and Sheila E a more demure side

David was born in 1953 , Bobby was born January 9, 1956 per Wikipedia under DavidZ and BobbyZ, respectively...

Their birth surname is actually Rivkin...

I don't think I had detailed attention toward Prince and them during that time, that I didn't know it back then.

The McClean twins always seemed genuinely sweet to me...without artifice...and they're so pretty together as a set...and then as a set together with P...something about the 3 of them together is very visually appealing to me...

But I gotta show this pic of them with Mayte cuz even with as lovely as they all are together, it occured to me that they could be P & M1's daughters (by age and looks)...She looks like she could be their older sister and still a hot MILF, and that sorta was interesting and sorta sad at the same time...

I never could tell these 2 women apart and still can't, but even before I knew they weren't really twins, I KNEW they weren't really twins...and it mattered in my enjoyment at the time and even now...if that makes sense...cuz it didn't make sense to me why it mattered at the time, and it still doesn't make sense to me even all these years later...

Interesting, Just thought Prince was like most men ( twins/sisters cross our minds in the naughtiest ways sometimes) and was able to act on it. It did make Him look like a true pimp with the clothes to match. Lol
