Forever in my life (SOTT movie question)

At the end of it, is he really emotional or is it an act ?

You can't always tell with Prince since he was so controlled all the time.

Life is "an act" ...and the whole world is a masquerade..

i, for one, always have to wipe tears away after screaming.

Actors do it, too.

i always thought he was just playin' during this bit, though.

.

Also, he knew it was the first ever "mic drop" biggrin

Seriously though ..i do think he got caught up in the music and his emotions and cried a little bit, after screaming that last line...like when people in baptist churches get the "holy ghost" during songs...that was the most powerful part of the movie, and i replayed it constantly, because i too, caught feelings during that scene.

I noticed that Matt Fink was looking at him as if he was asking "Dude are you okay?".

Its theatre
Doesnt mean its not convincing
He built it up to a climax
Things like fink looking at him quizzically are all part of the act
But its an incredible bit of screaming, shouting and hollering
I love it when prince goes into that zone, eg the end of beautiful ones
He always knew how to take it there

He also goes into that zone during his performance of "Motherless child" in 99.

It's a side effect of sreaming that high. Sheila E has mentioned it and you try singing along with it and you'll notice your eyes will start welling up.
