It's been speculated by fans that the guitar is just a replica, but the piano appears to be real. If so, it really should be protected and preserved, as his last piano is especially noteworthy. I worry it will be damaged. It should be left just as Prince left it, in my opinion. sad

These two yo-yos are giving the purple fam a bad name! How disrespectful and they should be banned from PP. Purple FAMS have worked hard to be respectful to his home and legacy and now this. Personally, I am so disappointed in these two right now. It's just appalling. These people 'got no home trainin'! If we want these things - piano and guitar - to be around for a long time we must take care of them. The only scratches that should be on that piano should be from our Prince's boots! Don't touch his &#@*! Period.

What the.....????!!!!

.

Question.....was this picture taken before or after Prince passed?

.

Regardless, it's very tacky and disrespectful to do that in anyone's home!

Ugh. I saw them at the Dance Party, and when I saw those photos I was furious. Things like this ruin it for others. When I toured PP yesterday and took my photo, we happened to bring up this situation. They were aware, I hope nothing like this happens again disbelief

Very upsetting to see that. Some people are stupid and have no respect for the deceased.

.

So, are they allowing photography at PP?

.

I agree -- I hope they put a stop to this nonsense and there should be no tolerance for that B.S.

They're only allowing one photo for the VIP tour. They take it for you on their camera, We had to lock up our phones for the entire tour. Which baffles me even more that a PP employee let this happen.

Thank you! clapping Because this is the point, I think too many seem to be ignoring. Those people did not do anything they were not obviously ALLOWED to do by PP staff, at the time. Because what they did was not a problem until other people saw the pictures and made a fuss.

My issue is I'm wondering just how this would have played out...had when other people saw those pictures and instead of a majority clearly thinking they were disgusting and disrespectful...thought they were the coolest thing ever and raved about how they were buying VIP tickets to get their own unique "one of a kind" photos? hmmm

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

I'm taking my que from people who were there and all that I've seen have reported that such behavior was unusual which says to me that PP staff wasn't encouraging this behavior but quite possibly just went along with those people who insisted on behaving that way. Not good, but I'm glad something official was said

This is the problem with society nowadays.

People here are arguing that what these idiots did was within the law. "They paid for the experience" rolleyes

Well, its within my rights to call your mamma a big fat whore!!
But I would never say that, even if she was, because my parents taugh me about RESPECT.

Simple as that.

If I had all the money in the world, I'd buy a 1st class ticket from Australia to Minneapolis in a private jet, stay in the most expensive hotel, and purchace a VIP to Paisley Park the museum.

BUT EVEN THEN....... I would neve feel that I have the right to jump on Prince's piano to take a farken selfie like that.

WHY!? Because my parents taught me how to be a decent human being.

You can't just ignore the fact these are guided tours. Plus that part of the tour is only open to VIPs. Plus if it turned out the Piano was a replica and Prince had never touched it. Would anyone really give a fuck?

Doesn't he have a Pegasus Piano in the rave DVD? That thing must have cost him well over $100,000 at the time. You'll notice the public are allowed nowhere near it. Would they really let the public touch a piano Prince played? A piano that could be worth hundreds of thousands at auction? I don't think so.

Labeling these people "disgusting and disrespectful" is unfair. They're obviously fans since there is literally no other reason to visit. They're also not actually doing anything disgusting or disrespectful.

I'm replying to myself because I've since read reports on the Housequake facebook that the piano is a replica. I would hope that they're not letting fans paw the real thing.

Amy Russell Gilmore They do know about the photos at the piano. A staff member takes the photo (no phones or cameras are allowed). Most people respectfully stand by the piano or sit on the bench. The piano is a replica. Not the piano that Prince used.


Amy Russell Gilmore I was at Paisley Park on Friday evening. We were in a group of about 40 people. There were probably 100+ people touring while we were there. No one that I saw acted like this. Fans were overjoyed to be were he created his magic. Many people cried (including me). Many of the areas are roped off. I feel very fortunate that we were allowed access to the studios and the video editing room. Kirk Johnson was in the video editing room. He showed unreleased clips and answered questions. It was great! We were told that this is not the piano that Prince used. His purple piano is on display in the huge party room along with items from different albums. I agree that there may be too much access allowed at this time. Some idiots will disrespect the things that the fans adore.

^ Why on earth would I care what Llondel has to say about anything? Does he own Paisley Park? Do I listen to his records? His only interest is financial. FACT.

Perhaps he's still trying to sell it as being Prince's actual piano?

We were there Friday night. The lady who took our picture was the Archive Director for not only Paisley Park but also for Graceland. And if any have watched the Entertainment Tonight segment done on Paisley Park before the opening, she was the one giving the tour. I can't see her letting this happen. But then again, when we had our picture taken, she took it as she was turned around talking to someone else...so who knows if she was even paying attention. Ugh....

I don't care what anyone says, I think that it was disrespectful and shouldn't have been allowed. And I don't care if Prince licked or pretended to lick his guitar, smashed it, or got on top of his piano, because it was HIS, and he could do whatever the hell he wanted with it! That doesn't mean that others should just go into Paisley Park, his home and studio, and act fools of themselves and disrespect his instruments that were so important to him! Prince loved Paisley Park and he loved his instruments, and those that visit there should respect that, and treat it with the upmost respect......any fan that really loves Prince knows that, and would! I don't give a damn if it were replicas, I still wouldn't treat it the way these people did, even if it were! Some can try to defend and excuse these people's behavior all they want, but there is no defense or excuse for it. RESPECT PRINCE'S HOUSE!!!!

Fools carrying on like this... they planned their photo to get attention.
And they're only inspiring someone else to try and top them.
For those that think these fools should have "the right" to do this, what comes next? Some other fool standing on the piano because Prince did that and they paid for a VIP experience?! Give me a break.
