Beyond Time And Fashion: Prince Does V Magazine, Fall 2013

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)

The lovely people from tFS also posted the interview – or at least a quote from it as it was penned down by Vanessa Grigoriadis after her talk with the prolific artist:

Words are tricky. And plus these days I just talk to the folks in the outside world about music.

How marvelous is he at grooming his mystery aura?

OMG…the lucky people at the Dutch North Sea Jazz Festival who attended the opening With bass player Larry Graham ‘s Graham Central Station. Prince showed up unexpected!! He’s on tour in Europe. Not announced….imagine being there and Prince shows up….. Larry Graham, former Sly & The Family Stone, and Prince are very good friends. Prince contributes to Larry Graham’s new album.

OMG……I’m so jealous. Been lucky enough to see Prince a few times. If you’ve never ever seen Prince if only once in your lifetime you have not lived…..really…..

“Words are tricky. And plus these days I just talk to the folks in the outside world about music.”
He said that because he has no smartphone. He’s right, words are tricky. I noticed it too often. So enough words then…..

Prince <3
This V is mine!!
