Hope you're all doing alright. Can't really find any words to cover this, hard to accept it. Somehow it helps knowing we're all feeling the same right now. Take care of yourselves.

anybody heard anythin from his family or any proteges?

Morris Day, Brownmark, and Sheila E. sent out out tweets. Haven't seen anything from Wendy and Lisa. All the ladies from Third Eye Girl haven't tweeted since Prince's last tweet around the 18th. Donna posted on the 19th and that was it. I assume they were told not to tweet anything by management because they are still under Prince's employment

Glad to hear that some of them said something and it will be intersting to see what they say as days go by.

Sheila E's first tweet is what broke me. I was trying to be stoic and manly and all that other bullshit, but when I read that tweet I lost it. It's not even like she said something profound, just that it was her saying it. neutral

Is it me or did the room just get darker?
Is it me or did I just lay down and die?

Is this a dream or did the world just crumble at my very feet?
How in heaven will I ever be alright?

I honestly have no words right now, I only managed to get 3 hours sleep. I just keep thinking about him and how the pictures I have of him are of someone that is deceased. I love you Prince.

One of the amazing things about Prince has been his ability to use music to connect with all of us, as well as enable us to connect with one another. The concept of Paisley Park as well as the reality of it are magical. There are not many people of his stature who would set up a venue and invite people to come and hang out. But Prince did.

I am glad to have had many Prince experiences throughout my life. I am so happy I made it to PP and saw Prince perform at home.

Thanks Prince for the music and the memories. They are truly a gift that I cherish, and will continue to appreciate even though you are now gone.

Watching the MTV Prince marathon. Seeing his videos in hi definition on a big screen tv is a beautiful thing.

His first wife, Mayte Garcia, told People magazine Prince was her "everything".

They were married in 1996, and in that year, they lost their son a week after he was born with a rare genetic disorder.

"I loved him then, I love him now and will love him eternally. He's with our son now," she added.

Am so very sad - I just thought we'd have more time, that he'd be doing shows into his nineties. I wanted to see elderly Prince showing everyone how it should be done.

Here is a nice quote from Maya who took the photos of Prince that I posted earlier.

"Beyond being known as one of the greatest artist of his time, Prince had JOKES and was into God and spirituality which is why we vibed so well and talked hours about the Bible, life & death. Anyone that knows Prince knows that man doesn’t sleep and will create all day and night. You never know when it’s your time so do what you love and love what you do. He brought so many of us artists into his life and we all had that same drive to create nonstop. He wasn’t perfect and a lot of the times draining but he cared deeply about this world and his craft. He didn’t have to grace me with his purpleness but he did. Thank you for being an amazing example of what a human being is capable of. Thank you for creating universes that transform and take us away. Thank you Prince for bringing me into your Purple Paradise at Paisley Park and beyond. My sincere condolences to his family, friends and fellow artist, his musical family. If he affected me the way he did in such a short time, I can only imagine what he did for everyone else. You will be deeply missed #Prince These are the last photos I took. Maybe I'll pick up this passion again. #riprince"

This whole thing is hard to conceptualize. I think I'm in denial. Nothing more I can say that what all you have said. I just can't help think that there is a deeper meaning or reason for this. I feel like there is a puzzle to solve. I just don't get it. I sense y'all feel the same.

I feel the best thing I can say is, Thank You. Thank You for the entertainment, the motivation, the inspiration, the pleasure to my ears and eyes. The possibilities. The interpretations. All of it!!!

I am so glad I loved him so hard. I am so glad I appreciated the fck out of every scream, solo, classic, b-side, bootleg, marginal release, questionable protege, and last minute concert. I am go glad I never wavered in my love, and I kept the faith. I am so glad for every show after party encounter large and small. I loved Prince unconditionally. He made me believe in God. I am never going to find or have that joy or that thrill again. I was changed when he came into my life and I am changed as he leaves it. I don't know how to face tomorrow in a Prince-less world. I am afraid to go to sleep. I'm 52 - THIS WASNT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN - My eyes are all swollen and I keep bursting into tears. It keeps getting worse by the hour. Im sorry if I'm not making sense. Im so so sad.

Jimmy Jam gave a lengthy interview on CNN, it's worth watching.



Apollonia is on her way to Paisley, looking for answers.

I simply cannot believe this happened. Now I know why I inexplicably chose to wear my purple longsleeve shirt to work yesterday morning, as I almost never wear longsleeve shirts.

Baby, you promised me U'd never leave
Then you died on the 21st day of April

Your father said it was pneumonia
Your mother said it was stress
But the doctor said you were dead
I say it's senseless
As long as I can hear you smiling, baby
You won't hear my tears



There's only 6 states in the US that don't allow Open Carry: Cali, FL, IL, NY, SC, DC. While SC's gun murder rate is DOUBLE that of Texas, DC's is 6 TIMES that of Texas! https://en.m.wikipedia.or...s_by_state

I'm devastated.

Prince has been my main musical influence over all these years.I have no words.This is surreal.

I guess i can consider myself lucky to have witnessed not only numerous concerts but also quite a few of his famous aftershow concerts.Also i was lucky to meet some members of his band and The Time.

I could tell a handfull of stories.

But right now i'm devastated, just devastated.

Filled the air with his music and videos today. I can't imagine the world without him. I was only a casual fan of his music until one particularly dark date for me, i watched the WDC video premier on MTV. Until then, for me his music had been fun, party music but at that moment it connected to my life on a deeply personal level and from that moment on Prince provided core of the soundtrack to my life.

Heavy hearted and soul weary, Godspeed Prince and thank you.

I was really looking forward to hearing his new group with himself, MonoNeon, Kirky J, Donna Grantis, and Adrian Crutchfield. It looks like he was going back to hard driving funk.

I haven't been on the Org for a long time. I had to check in before bed. Thank you Org for being here. I'm reading all my feelings in your posts. Our Prince is gone and nothing compares. My life has a hole. I am forever grateful for being his devoted fan for over 30 years. Adore, If I was your Girlfriend, Last Heart. Prince gave me musical inspiration and whole hearted passion for what he wanted to share. My natural high, Prince Live, is gone and I will miss that transcendence for the rest of my life. I never expected it to be gone so soon.

I don't know where to post. I cannot stop crying as the disbelief is sinking in. I don't want to believe it. It can't be true but it is. He was in his bicycle a few days ago. I want to hug everyone on the org, this is just so painful..... There is too much music I will not be able to listen to for a while and Sometimes it snow is no. 2 on the list. Prince, Prince, Prince.... what happened.... Buckets of tears sadsadsadsad:( I dreamt about him last night. I was holding him and he was smiling. It woke me up. Oh F**** I am just devastated...

Steve Parke posted a few things today on his Facebook, but had this funny story that stuck out to me:



All over the map today, but the little things that keep coming to the front of my brain...
One night Prince was sitting across from me in my office, he told me we were going to shoot some images for Emancipation. He looked at me very seriously for a second and asked if I'd ever photographed a nude woman. Before I got the answer out, he was wiggling his eyebrows up and down like Groucho Marx.




I had a definite moment of - what did he just do?



Then I calmly replied "yes", the wiggling eyebrows still making me blink in slight disbelief.



"Good.", he said, and walked out of the room.

lol
