Hey everyone, sad news to report today as I’m sure you’ve already read. The purple one is gone. Prince, a music, fashion, and all-around cultural icon, is dead at age 57.

This hits me pretty close to home, both as a fan of his music and film and as a resident of Minnesota, where the famed musician rose to fame. I currently reside in Minneapolis, and was floored by the sudden and shocking passing of the musician. I know there had been reports of an illness or flu recently, but nothing that spelled out this endgame. I am terribly saddened right now.

I last saw Prince in an episode of New Girl two years back, and he was just as amazing there as he had been anywhere else in his career, enthusiastic and weird and brilliant.

What are your memories of Prince? How will you remember him most?

 

RIP Prince.
