CandyCool said: Thanks for this. Now this alias makes me very happy. Our Prince was so brave and so strong and so was his faith in Christ.

I'm sorry, but no, he wasn't brave and strong. Brave and strong doesn't hide pills all over the place, and live in addiction while pretending to live clean and healthy. I'm sorry to be so blunt, but I hate it when some put blinders on and pretend like Prince was perfect and could do no wrong! He wasn't perfect, he was human like us all, and he wasn't the person that many of us thought he was, and his death proved that.

I understand what you mean contessa. I have to speculate here, but I think Prince was really in pain from his hip or hips and was taking pain medications for actual physical pain. I wish he had just gone to a doctor and gotten pain medications or had the surgery he needed to be pain free. I don't know, was he afraid if he got pain medications in his name the media would find out and he would be ashamed? Why? He would have been like probably a third of the US on chronic pain meds for pain. Instead he (or someone on his behalf for him) bought black market pain medications that cost him his life and in a way his reputation. He died from fentanyl from a tablet made to look like old Lortab (hydrocodone/APAP) that is no longer made. Most don't care to realize that many who die from fentanyl abuse actually die from using it like heroin (or did, now it is even being put into fake Xanax so nothing is safe). He died from fentanyl. Most people stop there. They say "junkie". A junkie supposedly halving and quartering tablets no less--people don't care, though. Prince could be alive today if he had just gotten his medications from a pharmacy, regardless of the name used, regardless of the reason, regardless of abuse or addiction. I don't know what to believe anymore regarding his drug use. I certainly do not think it was something he did for years or for emotional numbing. Regardless, I just wish he had been brave enough to fix whatever pain he was having and do it in a legit way, a safe way. It cost him his life, and sadly, he can never come back or explain what happened that night or why it happened.

Judgmental much? Nothing that has come out in the last year changes what he was to me while he was alive. I don't think anybody here has ever claimed he was perfect either.

No, I'm not judgmental, I just like speaking the truth! I loved Prince as much as any other loyal, long time fan, but I am not going to pretend like he was this perfect, could do no wrong person, just because I loved him and is a fan. Nothing has changed what he was to me either, I will always love him and his music, but like it or not, he wasn't who a lot of us thought he was. Before his death, I'm sure many of you, just like myself, would have tore anyone to pieces, if they even suggested that Prince had a drug problem or used drugs! I'm not judging him or anyone else, because I'm not the judge of anyone, nor can I judge anyone.....the only judge to me, is God Almighty!



Yes. We can all speak the truth. Yes he had an addiction. The main thing that matters is the we forgive and forget. His death proves nothing to you or anyone else. Prince won that battle. He gave himself to God a LONG time ago. Leave my man alone.
