There’s a real timeless quality to a real artist. Something about him or her keeps it relevant and vital above time and space, above trends and mood shifts. And that’s the artist’s trademark. That’s where the art really is. That’s where you’ll always find quality.
I’ve always been pleasantly surprised by Prince and his eccentric ways. Be it in music or in any of his art’s manifestations, Prince knew how to adapt and continue doing what he loves. He knew how to deliver what was expected of him and more. Beyond ‘le gout du jour’, you had Prince always cooking his specific purple meals! Talking about purple: this preview of the Fall 2013 issue of V Magazine is stunning and proves the above points: Prince as photographed by Inez and Vinoodh makes a stunning impression.
People who stop following time may discover, much like Prince here, that times follow them. Oh, I’m getting too spiritual for this topic. It’s just music, but I like music and I like Prince and I tend to get all passionate when discussing my passions (don’t get me started about dancing or nails! wink)

How marvelous is he at grooming his mystery aura?
