I was raised in New Orleans , I met Prince in hollygrove . I was a pre teenager , he'd say when you look at a mirror and others look at you, you think of me.. I was offered to be in Michael Jacksons music videos as a teenager, the governments decided no. I developed to appear as Vanity as a young woman, my boss and supervisors were reminders of healthy hard working women . I admired my mother's strength as a black woman .. And I depend on their result for peace, meaning middle age and older beings. Later , being documented legally normal . Insurance is not as it should be: Disappointment in demand and erasures. I worked for him and the government for a few years. I see the Chase, I'm in the presence of their ghosts non- specifics.. Anybody who knows , already are or has graduated from "their"dependency with no confusion, I'm almost there; Peoples need for God in man form delays at times.., I think his friends would be proud.. I can't get the movie to work, I know so much truth it hurts.. Phone rings.. It's an image and destiny. Stay human

Prince stars as " the kid " who battles the struggle of making a name for himself and his group "The Revolution" all while falling in love with "Appolonia" and competing for the spotlight against Morris Day's group, "The Time". In the shadows, the kids home life is unstable due to an alcoholic and abusive father who takes his frustrations out on the mom. Dramatic storyline that ends in triumph.

Prince the name speaks for itself. Talented artist in his own category. He is now in paradise driving a little red Corvette . RIP the best artist who gave us a lot of insight into his personal life and struggles. Prince was everything we wanted provider of entertainment and wisdom. I wish I had got the opportunity to have a conversation with him. Purple rain movie and song, and purple the color rules, rocks and forever imprinted in my heart and mind. PRINCE you are and were the best in all genres. PRINCE
