I grew up with Prince. (oh, that came out weird!) I used to listen to Prince’s songs when I was a child. Then I listen to more. Symbol, The Artist Formerly Known as Prince and so forth, but it all comes down to Prince. His undeniable musical genius keep his sound just as fresh and appealing today as it did nearly 40 years ago when he started his career.
(I even added a video of his latest musical release after the jump to testify to that!) Aside from his musical talents, Prince has a unique style. Both on and off stage. Of course I won’t refer myself to his personal life, although that’s where the real Prince is, but to his stage life. And there, Prince’s representation was always flamboyant and electrifyingly fashionable.
Take this Billboard cover photo signed by Justine Walpole for instance! Have you ever seen shades like that? Of course you didn’t! It takes someone like Prince to pull them off with style and panache!
Prince will be honored at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards (May 19th) with a Billboard Icon Award – I can’t wait his performance, he’s a master of live stage shows!
