I found it extremely difficult to act like everything was normal the day I heard Prince transitioned to being one of our ancestors. I used to come to my aunt Liz’s house and every single time I visited she would be playing this movie. It was Purple Rain and it felt like she watched it all the time. Later I would come to the realization that folks were playing this guy’s music all around me. I came to know him myself as a fan really when Graffiti Bridge came out. One of my favorite songs “New Power Generation” from that soundtrack went like this
“Pardon me for living, but this is my world too
I can’t help that what’s cool to us, might be strange to you
Pardon me for breathing, borrow some of your air?
The problem with you and your kind is that you don’t know love is there
