Second person

does anybody remember when prince brought out Emancipation, and he did the Oprah special? and he talked about the change and how he felt divorced from Prince,and that lately he had found out that he had created another person,(personality), and had felt it since he was a child. and also that he didnt know if it was male or female? u remember that? well i wanna know your thoughts on it cuz wasnt this just a few years after Cammille came about? now i realise Camille is male, but do u think that the personality and sound of Camille influenced that? and the fact that he doesnt know the sex of it? i Think Camille Vocals are very funky & rythmic, but i wonder do u think that had influence on the second person.And just for the record i really thought when Prince said that it was Extremely intriguing, i wondered what would he say now if someone asked him oh," what ever happened to your Second Person(personality)what do you think?

we are all whole people containing male and female attributes .. we are raised with certain programmed expectations based upon our sex ... males short hair breadwinner aggressive .. females artistic soft nurturing etc ... clearly with prince, there was no part of his being that wanted to stay in narrowly defined roles of male female ... i think his second personality was the result of thinking he should fit into somewhat of a male stereotype, even tho he was clearly flamboyant and effeminate, as a soon to be father it appears he discarded much of his femininity, which created a split personality. perviously he had been a solid mix of male female, full on androgeny. it is very noticeable that during the o(+> years he presented him self in a much more masculine manner .. with all the hip hop swearing baggy winter jackets and crap like that .. he stopped being himself .. discarded all of who he was, and embraced the stereo type male role, even tho it wasn't really him. the other part of his personality had nowhere to go, he distanced himself from it so much that he had to categorize it as a whole different person inside himself. I would even venture to say that emancipation was the period in which prince imprisoned prince. Ironic eh? Well realistically I would say it began with the gold experience. He just stopped being prince and started being consumed by outerworldly expectations of who he should be as a successful male musician. As a result his music tanked and prince lost himself.

the Oprah interview:

IIRC, Prince said he was not domesticated.

Unfortunately, he was..

Prince wasn't wild after that, the decline began with Emancipation, 1996. sad
