These selfish and insensitive comments toward Prince's family are appalling. We are not owed anything by these people. However long it takes them to get through this they should have our support unless they are PROVEN unworthy of it. Not from speculation, rumors and gossip.

IMO, so-called fans don't deserve a damn thing who only think of themselves and what they want or feel entitled to.

clapping clapping clapping "We're his family, too." barf No, we most certainly are not. And the sooner folks get that idea out of their heads, the better.

I'm sorry but I don't think it's her place to say which ones are "authorized" and which ones aren't. All she had to do was say they will have one for the fans in August and leave it at that. Mayte, the mother of his son, and Mani didn't need her permission, her "ok", or approval to have a private memorial and it's not any more/less "official" because Tyka signs off or whatever... Omar was even at the memorial, lots of close friends were there... more than the memorial at PP just days after his passing.

They didn't need her aproval to sell his stuff on ebay either...

The wooh is on the one!

eek Babynoz hug I think fans are just so hurt how all this played out, but yes we have no right to disrespect his family. If I have done that I sincerely apologize.



No apology necessary but so far we have more hateful cheetos comments, snide remarks about Tyka's education, and some maniac who is butt hurt about Prince's SISTER being in possession of his remains.

Wtf is wrong with people? eek

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

Get used to it people. Prince's legacy will be divided into warring factions, who all feel as though they are doing the right thing, more or less by him. It's human nature and most of these 'us vs them' feuds were taking place when he was alive. Hopefully the catalog/vault stays intact and under one authority.

The vault should be freed. All of it.

The wooh is on the one!

To be honest I've been scratching my head about all these "family feuding" reports, yet nothing specific has ever been reported.


I'm glad she said something.



Me too. Too many people are taking the click-bait from these rags as gospel and running with it like puppies with a new bone.



I'm thinking folks are pissed they didn't get their cheap thrill, they now have to make stupid stuff up. And that's extending way out beyond the Org.

We shouldn't judge Miss Tyka too harshly. Apparently, Flamin' Hot Cheetos have been scientifically proven to have an effect on the brain that's similar to cocaine.

http://articles.chicagotr...-addiction

It's not an addiction to the rush of tongue-burning orange-fingered excitement... It's a dependancy on the calming effects of ingesting 26 grams of fat, inbetween meals.


Brit wit. Got it. Wrong time for it.

Really. I did not consider Prince my family - or "like family" - ever.

I felt a connection to him that was based purely on admiration for his creative spirit and relentless drive. I have never entertained notions that I would be with him or around him - on any level other than that admiration.

Except that initially, you didn't say he was "like family." You said he WAS family. There's a pretty big difference between those things and that is what I reacted to - the idea that anyone here is on the same level as blood.

Because it doesn't belong to you, therefore you are not entitled to it. Be happy if you're given anything. Damn the man has given more music that is already out there than almost anyone I can think of, hell bunk that, scratch the almost. So if another drop doesn't come out then so be it. It was his.

So when he was cremated, what was that? Not a funeral of sorts?

I'm a bit confused by it all. sad

Nothing to be confused by. My mom was cremated, had no memorial or funeral (her request--government agencies were informed, but she didn't even want her obituary in the paper). I went back to my home town to pick up the ashes about a week later, and that was it. There was a time, the night after she died, when all the family was together and talked and cried and stuff, but it wasn't a funeral or a memorial. That's what happened here--a bunch of friends went to Minneapolis, and they spent some time reminiscing and reconnecting. It happened because Prince died, but it was not a funeral or a memorial service.

Tyka says there will be an official memorial--but that doesn't preclude everybody else grieving the loss/celebrating the life anyway they want. Just that she's not going to be attending them, and having done my share of grieving my own personal losses, I can't say I blame her. Many outsiders (and that's what we are--with a handful of exceptions--no matter how torn up about this we are) would like to have things we can participate in, and others less outside than us want to do something as well. That's fine, but I understand Tyka's position on them. Multiple memorials, while they might serve to help the grieving for the various individuals participating in one or two, would be incredibly draining for her. She's not really been public, so add that stress to her grief, and I can see why she doesn't want to be going to a lot of these things. Rather than disappoint some (I attend this one with these people organizing it, but not this one or this one, but I will go to this one), she "supports" all of them, from a distance.

There's an intimacy in putting earphones in, turning-off the lights, and just listening to someone "speak to you" for thirty to eighty minutes.

You don't have that level of feeling connected to many people in your life, let alone blood relations.

Yes, he felt like family to me too.
