Whatever time P requested in the beginning. they decided on the day before for the Shulbarg appointment . On the 21st,, he had no appointment until 10. There is no reason to believe he wouldn't have slept in a bit on that morning. Maybe until 9. the dude had to sleep and they knew his late hours. I am not saying it was wise to wait, but I can't understand their mindset if they wanted to give him some time to sleep.

Another thing--they had no reason to believe that P was dead. Remember his hours, folks. He went to bed extremely late and sleep in to about 10. They made a few calls and probably did wait to wake him up, but for some reason since the doctor was there, they went looking for him (making instinctively thought they should get the ball rolling.) Yes, it was a health crisis but he made it for five days without dying and he was probably anxious the whole time and he had finally agreed to rehab at some point that week. I think they thought his head was in a better place (despite his anxiety) . THe withdrawal drugs were given on the 20th because that was when the appointment was scheduled with Shulbarg, I imagine.

One of the original appointments with Dr S took place at 6:45 am. If it was up to Prince, it would’ve been at 5:45 am, but Dr S was not comfortable giving fluids at PP, and requested they go to his office. On a normal day, it was stated that P didn’t start moving around until around 2 pm. Also, was there or wasn’t there an appointment for a holistic Dr around 10 am on 4/21?

Regarding the "shots fired at paisley", laytonian has provided a very plausible theory which debunks this entire shots fired at PP....

My dad said the same thing, but then I said, "he was held accountable. He died". Maybe death is a little too much accountability for having an addiction. Addiction doesn't happen in a vacuum. That being said, Prince's compartmentalized nature is why this happened and that is what is sad. I was reading some comments on Elisa's facebook and someone who claims they knew him from 2010-2013 was debating with someone else who never met him and who had said that P died from megalomania not being held in check by his "friends". To which this person said, it was not megalomania that killed Prince, it was "multiplicity"..They also said he was lovely when they knew him. that resonated with me because it is kind how I feel. Its tragic. After all, There are a lot of enabled megalomaniacs who live long lives..our president is one of them.

Agree,
The behaviour by Prince was his downfall in the end
Still can’t believe an iconic figure didn’t have his own Doctor and Kirk had to take him to his, he should have had the best in the business looking after his health, seems he went from doc to doc for years, However had his clothes, shoes custom made, personal chef, hairdresser and all that stuff, unbelievable.

I agree that Prince could be lovely at times. I just think there is so much criticism of Kirk...I don't think Prince would have offered much if the roles were reversed...too selfish. Why did Kirk have to baby-sit a grown man?

Though I was too often entranced by him and his magnetism, I think he was likely a narcissist. I stuggle with his treatment of women, subordinants, his self-centeredness and try to square that with his transcendant art.

I don't want to derail the thread in an attempt to analyze Prince's nature. I don't think he was a narcissist any more than most performers (pure narcissists, in my opinion, don't compensate for preceived shortcomings through working hard and living in disguise--so like most performers he probably had compensory narcissism--Remember the mythological Narcissus didn't run over to his makeup counter, throw on heels, get decked out, work nine hours on a song and bust his butt rehearsing before he got to the point that he couldn't stop staring at his own reflection--he was in love with himself as is) I think the bigger problem was that he was on the autistic spectrum, had abandonment issues, was deeply insecure, and had trust issues. As for Kirk babysitting him, he did pay him. Nobody was doing anything for Free for Prince even his girlfriends. Since Prince died, I think its become more apparent that folks around him are rather self-serving themselves (either making money off him or dropping his name for recognition) . I am not saying they are unfeeling people or didn't have sympathy or affection for the man, but remember the Weltons, Larry, and even Kirk I believe lived in homes PRince paid for. His sister acts like she is broke, but a week before he died he deposited 10,000 dollars in her account,(and I imagine this happened frequently due to the "job" he gave her.). She might have even lived in a house he owned as welll, his half brother did. Tyka had blown the car and other money he gave her because of her addiction.(he also paid for her rehab ironically>)


Definition of compensory narcissism--The basic trait of the Compensatory Narcissistic Personality Type is a pattern of overtly narcissistic behaviours (that) derive from an underlying sense of insecurity and weakness, rather than from genuine feelings of self-confidence and high self-esteem." But I don't think Prince was just that...too complicated. I think he knew he was a badass as a musician (in terms of how he felt about himself in other areas..I can't say the same.) Also pcould be quietly generous especially when people did not want anything from him.

Great interview. And yes, she is very direct. Prince was never interested in recreational drugs. He felt no need to get high. He abused his body by being a perfectionist and could never admit to being ill, because he saw it as a weakness. He had excrutiating pain from bone on bone grating, in his hips, knees and ankles. We know from JH that the same was happening with his hands and wrists. He took pain medicine to deal with all that and became addicted. To the point of no return. Susan also spoke with people who were around him in the last year of his life and from what they told her three things stand out for me:

- he was a man nobody could say no to;

- nobody could tell him what to do;

- he was done.

One of her observations you didn't mention was really important to me-- she said she could tell that THEY LOVED HIM AS MUCH AS SUSAN AND OTHERS DID. I wanted to add that Judith added that prince’s tendencies and abilities to rationalize his choices made it hard to change his mind. Susan did say prince would listen but he would still up ultimately make his own decisions..

I think Kirk actually comes out of this with some credit. He got nearer to getting prince the help he needed than anyone. And I don't believe him to be a true enabler, at worst a middleman semi-enabler. Prince was after all ordering these pills over the internet (most likely explanation, not a fact).

I agree. I think Prince got those pills by himself, but I doubt he even had to order them online. I imagine there is some person in the industry taking those pills and he literally just physically asked for a hookup over his little phone.

I believe Prince was borderline autistic which is not the same as being on the spectrum. Unless we go with the idea it's a 1 in 10 problem, not 1:100. And the reason I say that is because, based on recent evidence, there is strong indication that the number of people who score low? on empathy quotient tests is much higher than previously thought. Conversely, to paraphrase an 'expert' with decades of experience, if you think someone is autistic because they're eccentric or socially awkward it's highly likely they're not autistic (statistically).


And to look at Prince's personality, as far as we're able, there's a lot of control and manipulation going on throughout his life. Which, if we're being honest, is a feature commonly associated with personality disorders, but one that is at odds with the 'autistic' personality. Trust me. I should know. I'm a doctor.

I see your point. Autistic folks struggle with social cues. How can they manipulate? But maybe what people construed as manipulating was P’s weird delusional world view. Talking about personality disorders. I just read about some. It is not an exact science and they blur together. Prince joked that he had several personalities. I reckon one could say he had avoidance personality as well.

He abused his body by being a perfectionist and could never admit to being ill, because he saw it as a weakness. He had excrutiating pain from bone on bone grating, in his hips, knees and ankles. We know from JH that the same was happening with his hands and wrists. He took pain medicine to deal with all that and became addicted. To the point of no return. Susan also spoke with people who were around him in the last year of his life and from what they told her three things stand out for me:


- he was a man nobody could say no to;


- nobody could tell him what to do;


- he was done.

Okay. Folk like Susan Rogers need to stop with the hearsay. Who are these "people" she spoke with??? Stop being a scaredy cat and give up names. If not, she and others with their gossip mouths need to keep it moving down the yellow brick road



Sounds like her conclusions do not correspond with your theories. She was an outsider at the end of P’s life but I am sure his younger crowd discussed this stuff with the older crowd.

My point is, nobody speaks for me, but me. So stlmuziqlvr comment that he (pete) speaks for 'us' , no he doesn't.

Laura had lots of knowledge, but the way she put forth herself, turned a lot of us off.


I don't like the whole banning business, especially for life...unless they committed a crime, or threatened murder etc.

Penny, where exactly did I "comment that he (pete) speaks for 'us' "?

Look at post 203
