I really think the song and the movie PURPLE RAIN were the reason Prinnce's favorite color was said to be purple. I remember a magazine article from paris back when he was filming UTCM, when prince did say that purple was no longer his favorite color, but nobody paid him any attention. i think he tried hard to get away from it when he made the black and white UTCM Go back before the PR song and movie. Did he wear anything purple back then? I don't think so. confused

How long do you wanna be loved. Is forever enough, is forever enough?

There was a phone call that he had with George Lopez on his show once, in which he told George to let him bring the purple, because everyone always overdoes the purple, like the purple lights.

Not dumb--they're working on an orange now. Then there'll be a yellow, and a raspberry, and so on...

Great plan. lol

Prince's association with the color purple began BEFORE "Purple Rain"...the movie, soundtrack and song! bored2

Yes, especially colors they look good in, or colors that might have significant meaning for them culturally spiritually etc

According to Sara Savoy on Facebook, who was at the PRNAlumni event and recorded Omarr Baker: "Prince's brother Omarr Baker talks about starting a new record label and preserving Prince's legacy. I didn't get it on film but he said that "My sister was misquoted and Prince's favorite color was not orange."

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

I think it is very believable that purple is not his favorite color, but he did use it to brand himself. It may have been his favorite color at one point. He was a creative man who was constantly changing. All of us go through phases of colors we like more. I have been through the black, teal, purple, green phases. I am now in a more coral phase. What is true is that we associate him with purple. I have no issue with the idea that apples were not Jobs' favorite fruits ...

I love that they can only find 6 examples and that confirms it as fact.


Prince wore red WAY more than that including a guitar too... shrug cool




Yes, but Tyka (his sister) said what his favorite color was and then they were looking for something to prove it -- Tyka didn't need to prove it as his sister, she would know those kinds of details more than we would.


She also has a ton of purple merch to sell.

I wouldn't have guessed orange, but I did assume it may not be purple it was too convenient.

Let's analyze this color orange...


[Edited 8/30/17 18:04pm]




she is wrong, it is blue

It makes sense as well, blue has been so prevalent in his wardrobe and music.

Get Blue


Blue Light


Violet Blue


Computer Blue


So Blue


Love On A Blue Train


Curious Blue


Blue Limousine


Blue Boy




How many songs exist with purple in the title? Or orange?





I think this has more to do with there being more rhymes for "blue" than there are for "orange" wink
[Edited 8/31/17 0:34am]

In Rap music orange is considered taboo, because of the lack of words that rhyme

I had always heard that his favorite color was blue - loved his Bentley - and that he picked the color purple because it was the color of Lent.

You know Prince wasn't no damn drug addict !

During a speech that Omarr did at one of the PRN Foundation events this weekend, he said that Tyka was misquoted.

Is he shaping up to be the Sara Huckabee Sanders of Prince's family?

Because Prince was Catholic? What would lent have to do with someone who was raised a SDA.

He didn't have to be Catholic to understand it's significance - especially back then.
