Google maps welcome to Minnesota state icon is Prince!

So Google maps announces a welcome to each state with a little cartoon icon as you cross state lines. I'm in from Ohio visiting Pasiley Park and the twin cities for the weekend. It made me smile as I crossed the Minnesota state line last night and Google maps announced welcome to Minnesota with a Prince icon complete with cloud guitar!

That is awesome! MN loves Prince. Some orgers have insinuated that his home state didn't love and respect him, but that's just not true. I'm in MN and i'm still touched by the love that continues to be shown for him here.
Anyway, welcome and enjoy your visit. It's beautiful here today and the Twin Cities is a lovely area especially this time of year.

I was born and raised here in MN, and I 100% agree with you, sonshine. It totally baffles me when I read things about his home state disrespecting or not appreciating him, when it has always been the opposite in my observation. I feel like he is very loved here -- always has and always will be. Even my "not at all a Prince fan" friends have love and respect for him, even if they don't love his music.

Anyway, back to the thread.....I had no idea google did that - how cool! Thanks for sharing. I hope you enjoy (or enjoyed, if you already left!) your time here.
