That cover has to be a fake. My 6 year old niece could have made a better cover lol. No cover listed on amazon so I believe info is real but that cover photo is trash.

Wrong.

and it's a surprising choice for the cover, but I like it.

Limited income here..I want to pre order but trying to stick to my monthly budget..Can fellow Purple Army members tell me the most reasonable priced site to pre order? I see Amazon has free shipping..which is good because I don't have prime..but with tax its showing the price at $32+.


If you have a local BN you can pick up at, this would be the best deal I know of: https://www.barnesandnobl...99589652#/

Well, I got it ordered tonight on Amazon. Seems like a hugely long wait to get it in October. Wouldnt it be fantastic if so many of his fans preordered it that it became one of their best sellers of 2019?

I have this other fantasy too. That the stupid music hogs in charge of when the music comes out would release an original song that has never been on a boot and it goes to #1 in 2019 too. Now don't tell me you haven't wished for this too....you just didn't want to say on here, huh? I not scared to say it friends!

Peace, out.

Good morning children...take a look out your window, the world is falling...

Yeah from what it seems this was what Prince was working on those last months-year, again I know people dont like to hear it but I do think he knew he was on borrowed time, with people dieing left and right we know from Tavis Smiley that Michael J dieing did effect Prince and though we dont think PRINCE was human, like a human getting older and noticing he is not able to do things he could be it because of pain or whatever, he was losing the only thing he could really do in life. So he may not of thought he was gonna die but i think Bowie dieing, Vanity dieing all these people going, getting older, in pain, and now this addiction that he thought he alone could overcome, I think what he was writing was an account of just who he was, and not all the stuff that happened after he blew up in the world, that person that got there. SO i hope people are not expecting details of relationships with Shelia and Wendy and Lisa stories etc...because I doubt anyone but family is gonna be in this book.


I agree with your assessment of Prince’s approach to this book, bearing in mind he wanted to still keep the shroud of mystery.

Yes, I have as well, as I'm sure most serious fans have. No need to "toot-toot" that chocolatebox horn of yours lol

Oh yeah, the red/orange (whatever) zip-up shirt from the 70's, that's a velour mans shirt. Very fashionable for that decade. All the better to wear with your poleaster bell bottom pants!!

EBONY: Do you ever see yourself writing a memoir?
Prince(r.i.p): You ever heard of checking your list to see who’s naughty and who’s nice? I just let people talk. I was talking to somebody about “The Beautiful Ones.” They were speculating as to who I was singing about. But they were completely wrong.

Prince(r.i.p.)subconsciously gave a hint about this memoir in August 2015.

Right. And then he had that article pulled a hot minute after it was published. Then, during his first P&M show at PP as he was expressing his journey through both his words and songs, prior to beginning TBO he said, “don’t let the fellas fool you. We ALL write songs to “cop” girls”. In that moment he was all but point blank admitting he wrote that song to “woo” a girl away from another guy. Hmmmm, kinda similar to the long running story of how that song came to be.

nod That's a bathroom heater. The wallpaper probably has metallic gold outlining the caning. His face is what I heart

Great photo choice. I wonder if he chose it?
