Talk of Depression

Yet people who knew Prince wondered whether he was in a malaise, his ailments limiting his ability to tour, and battling melancholy after the death in February of Denise Matthews, also known as Vanity, a former girlfriend and collaborator. In Australia during a show on Feb. 16, the day after she died, he became emotional.

“Someone dear to us has passed away,” Prince told the crowd before dedicating the song “Little Red Corvette” to her, according to local news media accounts of the show. Later, he told the audience, “I’m trying to stay focused, it’s a little heavy for me tonight.”

Concerned friends said they had recently been discussing Prince’s emotional state. He had told some people that he was feeling depressed, and some suspected he was going through a period of professional stagnancy.

In fact, Prince shunned an $85 million offer to do a large-scale world tour in favor of smaller shows, said Kim Worsoe, his tour coordinator. “I don’t do tours, I do events,” Mr. Worsoe recalled Prince telling him.

Others said they did not detect any depression. His small concerts, said Damaris Lewis, a friend and dancer, were an indication that he had found peace with himself. “His fans were his family,” she said.

[...]

Interesting how the one person on record in this article says she didn't detect depression. I'd love to know who these concerned friends were and why they would blab to the NY Times. Some friends...

I don't have any way of knowing his emotional state but this picture SCREAMS serious illness and rapid weight loss to me!! If I wasn't looking at this here, I'm not sure I would have recognized him. The first time I saw this picture, it tore my insides up. I wanted to punch whomever was in his inner circle on that day.

I have seen it enough now that I'm not so shocked but, come on, this is emaciated and deathly looking. Maybe it's just my Momma Bear instincts but this just kills me!!! He deserved better. I don't blame anyone really, Judith is so young. I wouldn't have tried to force someone that much older than I to do something when I was her age. Just seeing his face so drawn and his demeanor so subdued (in some pictures) would have set alarms bells ringing if he had been my friend or employer. I know, I know, easy for me to say. Still think I would spoken because I would have been freaked.

Prince does appear "extremely" thin in that photo. He is a small man to begin with, so any weight loss is going to be clearly visible. But then again, he was very thin back in the 90s. When he was younger, he had more muscle, so he was more filled-out. His clothing was very loose too. All we can do is speculate here because we don't know what Prince was thinking or feeling or going through. He was sad over the loss of Denise (Vanity), and he probably had other issues going on (personal and medical), and did not want to share it with the public, or even those who were close to him. Prince had a lot of pride and whatever he was going through, he wasn't going to ask for anyone's pity. That wasn't his style. I know he is in a better place now, and he knows he is loved. He was such a beautiful soul, and we lost him much too soon. Maybe he was terminally ill, maybe he wasn't. We just don't know. And, we have to respect his decision to not tell us, if that was the case. Prince lived his life the way he wanted to. He loved all of us.

I know it's hard to know what really went on with Prince a lot of the time, and I keep a lot of thoughts to myself because I REALLY respect him. But there is something that I really wish I understood and I wonder if you could shed some light on it. I have seen people say here that Prince seemed "so sad" the last months of his life. He was getting older, yes, but I see photos of him out smiling and laughing with damaris and having a good time. And he was playing shows and helping Judith Hill and maybe others. Then again I know how private he was. He wouldn't have complained about anything either. Do you think he was really sad those last month months? If so, why?



Yes, I do because time was running out for him (I know others don't agree but I'm not debating this with anyone) and he was well aware of it. ThatGIRLthang said he knew he was terminally ill and had told people close to him. I believe her. As far as photos where he seemed "happy"....from what I understand, opiods can produce euphoric effects so that's something to add into what we are seeing, as well as any other possible unknown drug effects.

Yes. I think Prince was sick and he was still sad about Vanity's death. I don't know how anyone who was around him could not see it.

Clearly it seems makes people feel better if Prince "knew" something ahead of time, and then they create a scenerio to back this up, be it pictures in a dark music hall with strange shadows while he is performing sad songs, or thinking he is skinner than normal, when in actuality it is an illusion. If I put a 15 foot round afro on me, then wore loose clothes, I would look skinnier as well. And many many many more things with fans reaching for things that simply don't exist, all in an effort to force this horrible event to make sense in their minds.

The facts:

Sheila E says he was always in pain - people who pop pain pills are not always in pain, if Prince was some addict, Sheila would have never seen him in pain.

Nobody around him, nobody close to him ever saw him take a thing, nor was there ever one complaint of being in pain. His bodyguard never saw anything in his bags that he packed personally. He never appeared high, or, off, to anyone.

Prince hated taking any drug, even an aspirin, his body was his temple and did everything he could not to pollute it. He didn't even have a cell phone because he believed the frequency they emitted was harmful. Which he mentioned on twitter one day.

Prince preached non addiction, and lived by example his entire life. He was disciplined beyond belief. The way he recorded, the way he ate (very little and healthy as shit), the way he held true to all JW beliefs and restrictions, no swearing, no birthdays, celibate lifestyle......all these things, no problem for Prince, he was a determined, strong man. Yet, we are to believe that after a nice relaxing show with him sitting at piano, he is in so much pain, that not only does he pollute his body with drugs, but he pollutes it to the point of overdose?????? Throws a party a few days later, and then does the exact same thing a few days after that??

This is not the actions of the man we knew, common sense is all you need here people. Forget what the media says, use your freakin minds, use what you knew Prince to be about his entire life, his every walking breath, his every lyric, his every action, contradicts what we are seeing here.

With respect to all here, I believe he would honestly be saddened at what his fans are saying and how quickly they came to believe all this nonsense.

I'm not sure Prince was "sad" but the human beings that we are tend to feel empathetic to others we perceive as being alone. P was at the age you look back and start to question some of the things you did or decisions you made. But I don't think he was sad. He seemed to have plenty of friends and companions to keep him company if that's what he wanted. I think he was more mature and was slowing down due to his age and due to the very real battle he was waging with his opiate issues. The struggle is real, and it is huge. It ages you. It consumes you. I'm sorry he had to go thru that. I wish he could have hung on a bit longer and gotten the help he needed. He was strong and could have beat it. At the very least he deserved the chance. So no I don't think he was sad, I think he was managing pretty damn well considering. He still had plans for the future and so much more to do. He wasn't planning on leaving any time soon. He was always looking forward it seemed to me.

I feel the same way as you do. I know Prince would have gone on to do many more great things in his life. He never stopped creating, evolving, growing and learning.

Can u imagine "uncle Prince" babysitting the Welton's kid? I bet he would have LOVED that. I think he was looking forward to many things and his problem just got the better of him.sad

I can't find a tactful way to add to this discussion without feeling like I'm explaining things in a way that is disrespectful to Prince's privacy. Prince chose to interact and share info with some and not others for a reason.

I told a friend on April 16th or 17th that Prince was thinking about releasing this mortal coil. When the 21st happened, I told my friend I wanted to take back my words. I even blogged that it seemed during the Piano and Mic concert that Prince was feeling the cycle of life. I said that it reminded me of the cycles we all go through as we mature, but we always come back home. I wrote that blog on April 16th.

I don't disagree about the weight loss but come on, he's not deathly looking in this photo. No he doesn't look like the perfect picture of health but he doesn't look like he's on deaths door either. A man on deaths door wouldn't be travelling the world performing concerts.

ALL THIS. I agree with Dolly. I only learned about and joined the org after what happened 2 our man. As I never felt the need 2 join before becuz I knew how much he disliked being talked about despite him coming on here. But, I like most read so much info anything I could (still do) 2 learn more about him. That lead me 2 some old threads where I saw some orgers made comments about how they were worried about him cuz he wasn't looking healthy or well. It was interesting 2 read becuz when some1 would say something it was mainly ignored. I don't think it was ignored 2 be mean or anything like that but I think it was more so ppl didn't want 2 admit 2 themselves or point it out 2 others 4 fear of confirmation that something was not right. I think a lot of ppl noticed what was happening on here but declined 2 say anything 4 worry that P himself might see it and make him upset or sad.

As far as those who think he couldn't have been in that much pain becuz of him being able 2 travel/play full shows still, music was his therapy, his "drug" of choice so 2 speak. He always took 2 music 2 heal himself. I've known some1 that was dying from cancer and went 2 an amusement park which was beyond physically draining 2 them but they did so anyway with a smile on their face, becuz they wanted 2 live life the best way they could before their time was up. I'm sure it was still physically draining and painful but he put on a very strong "armor". Look back at how he acted after losing Ahmir, another child 2 miscarriage, and his marriage on top of it all. The man could put on 1 hell of a happy face 2 go out and be "Prince", he burried himself into his work. I think he was in fact sad becuz of something (what we may never know) was going on. Looking back on his behaviour IE -talking a lot about his Dad in the past few years, talk of turning PP into a museum, songs like "Way Back Home" "The Breakdown" R just some things 2 point something was up. sad That's my take on it anyway.

I feel like Prince when he was discussing Chem trails and US Presidents with Tavis Smiley: "Just give us the facts. We'll fill in the blanks."
.
.
Prince, if you were hiding a secret, release it. We, your fans, will understand. You have the most loving fan base and I know we will all be accepting and understanding no matter what the truth is. You were so keen on truth. Why the secrecy? I know those meds weren't for hip pain. Nobody takes fentanol for even the severest arthritis. They just don't.
.
.
We love you, Prince. Release it. Give your fans closure. Your legacy is clearly intact. Nobody is going to duck with that.
I wish u heaven

If you listen to the last 3 albums there were hints.

Then there is the curious non release of Purple Rain 30.

Prince tweeted to ask Warner Bros because they had the work.

A Purple Rain 35 will sell much better.

I'm not if it's correct to determine if someone is sad based on just pictures. The only people who would really know are those who were around him everyday...

.

I personally didn't think he was really sad at the time...but I think his most recent albums did have some tinge of sadness to them.

It's amazing how many people here consider themselves to have good instincts? C'mon read the thread title again. Then be circumspect for y'know a while? Good.

Virtually everyone over the age of 40 is overweight, bar possibly hardcore vegans. And by that I mean if you're half a stone over your natural weight- when you were at your fittest, then you're personally 1/2 stone overweight. The vast majority over 30 are overweight. Just because everyone is overweight doesn't make them healthy. It's the new normal, so what?



Prince was about the healthiest weight he could be at 55 when I saw him in 2014. People don't die in their mid 50s from being too thin unless they have an eating disorder or crohn's disease, aids which Prince had none of. Prince didn't die from a food problem even if that was a mitigating factor. See?

I've always thought he had cancer. How did his parents die ? is there a history of illness in his family ? I know a few of his siblings have passed in their 50's.

I am not sure what the family are trying to say. At first Chazz said there was no illness and he avoided drugs and alcohol and now he says it was on record they were reaching out to him. Why were they reaching out? What are they trying to say?

Initial comments:

"I can tell you this: What I know is that he was perfectly healthy," said Mr Smith, who formed a band with Prince when they were kids.

Mr Smith said Prince swore off drugs and alcohol as a kid, and the group they played with saw a lot of music greats fall, so "we decided to never get into that stuff, and no one did".

Then recently:

"Being free enough to be able to say, I'm not doing well today. I'm in pain. Can you guys help me? Are you going to make fun of me if I tell you that I am in need, I'm hurting?" he said. "That's really a big lesson, that everybody needs to learn."

Smith and his family reached out, in many ways, "in every kind of way you can think of," he said.

"Weren't trying to hurt him, or nothing like that, it all came from love," he said.

P had plenty of people around him who had been through pain/painkiller/opiate use and he could have talked to without making fun of him. He had helped others with their drug use and had friends who had recent surgeries. People don't hide drug abuse because they think their close friends and relatives will laugh at them. They hide it because they aren't really ready to sort out their problem. And if he didn't tell family, why did they reach out to him? What do they mean by they weren't trying to hurt him? What did they do that could be thought of as hurting him - who would even think that after the plane incident?

Why does everything that is said about all this feel off somehow?

I've said before that I've always seen a bit of sadness in his eyes from the beginning of his career. There are some people who just give off a complex aura. Prince seemed one of these people. Like a bit of turmoil was boiling underneath.

Then again I know how private he was. He wouldn't have complained about anything either. Do you think he was really sad those last month months? If so, why?

I've said before that I've always seen a bit of sadness in his eyes from the beginning of his career. There are some people who just give off a complex aura. Prince seemed one of these people. Like a bit of turmoil was boiling underneath.


This! I feel the same way. He always seemed a bit broken which I attributed to a chaotic childhood and/or challenging family dynamics due to divorces, remarriages, step snd half siblings. Im sure he wasnt immune to the conflict and confusion and was scarred by it to some extent.
It's a hurtful place, the world, in and of itself. We don't need to add to it. We all need one another. ~ PRN
