Prince thorwing up that 666 hand sign...not to mention he always threw up the Baphomet hand sign as well... and he was also quite fond of checkerboard (Masonic) floors....interesting that his sister Sharon, would say she used to call him "The Prince Of Darkness"... and also interesting that miss Lavonne Daugherty would say Prince was 'evil'.

eek hmmmmm

I thought the checkerboard floors came from First Avenue. Parade era(including the Romance 1600) shows included those floor first and since but interesting nonetheless

Maybe this belongs in an audiovisual appreciation thread biggrin, but I loved hearing Prince talk to Chris Rock in 1997. A favorite interview for sure!

Thanks, and glad for the visual reminder that Prince was willing to take off his sunglasses while rocking that outfit. For me personally, the Chris Rock interview is a 10 out of 10. LOVE that conversation. The only thing that keeps it from being 11 out of 10 lol are those sunglasses. It's not the style of the glasses. Hardly ever like sunglasses...on anybody. I like to see people's eyes. Sunglasses that obscure Prince's beautiful eyes get all the wrath. mad

There are a few exceptions to the rule. Occasionally sunglasses are cool. Like with ZZ Top. Or the Org's resident yellow dude. cool

He did more interviews in the 90s and most of the time had sunglasses on I think.

These photos made my morning. Thank you, most especially for the top one. Those eyes. love

Still mad at the sunglasses, but have to give props to all of Prince's shades (meant both ways) of reds and blues. So cool the way the glasses in the bottom picture work with his shirt. No doubt there's some matching blue heels to be found.

LOL...i hated her bangs cut like that... i think (if im not mistaken) i read in her book that Prince cut them like that...she looks amazing there otherwise... Prince (or whomever had the directorial visions) really knew how to shoot Mayte to make her look beautiful and dreamlike... especially in the "Sweet Baby" video

It's been a while, so I may also be mistaken, but by my memory she did indeed say Prince cut them like that, and that they thought it succeeded in bringing out an "older" womanly side of her (vs. "girlish" side). Not sure those bangs are my favorite, either. I know it's weird, but they feel a little distractingly "Sci Fi look" to me. Not that Sci Fi is a bad thing.

Anyway, regardless of hairstyle preference, she is and was beautiful. Revisited "Sweet Baby" video yesterday after seeing discussion here. : )
