Purple Rain Icon Died Today

Today my girlfriend’s and I rushed to my car on our way for our lunch break, towards Ni Ji Sushi Japanese Restaurant.  The usual banter of work and laughter and shouts of “we’re starving”filled the air… I shuffled through the radio stations not hearing anything of the pending saddening news thats about to shock us before we sit down and engulf our meals.  My girlfriend Gillian exclaimed that her friend stated that TMZ stated that Prince just died! I’m like, that’s TMZ , do you believe them half the time? (Ok fine we do, I’m just in denial here) This is Prince. He didn’t die, no he didn’t , stop it. But he did.  How sad is this news today? Very sad to me.


Prince was legendary. He was Iconic. Just like Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. These artist who was back in the 80’s represented to me of an Era that was hell awesome. Of music that was the damn best. Music that was when you hear it now, brings you back into the past where you reminisce of the good ole days. The good ole days when everything was simple and uncomplicated and represented freedom to me. Freedom  from responsibilty (somewhat) and all you think about was school and homework and friends and dances and awesome music and reading underneath a tree and writing underneath a tree and looking nice for that special someone. Yes, today those memories came flooding back to me. All over the news Prince’s songs was played. It was beautiful. You saw him dance his sexy dance (not my type) but for many yes, saw that special look in his eyes and those outfits, my helllll, yup, thats Prince. He was a performer and perform he did! He was so talented and gave so much to his audience on stage, its amazing to watch him.  I love many of his songs 1999, Purple Rain, Little Red Corvette, Kiss, I would Die 4 U,  and my most favourite , When Doves Cry. When that video “When Doves Cry” comes on, all I can see is my husband break dance in the gymnasium at the school dance. My husband in high school, was amazing at break dancing! Once in a blue moon he will do a couple of break dance moves for me, it always brings me back to the day, that I first started falling for him. But thats another story….

Rest in peace, Prince
