As the weekend has past and it really starts to sink in to so many the significance of this great artist we knew by the mononym of Prince, the tributes pour in, the outrage by the loss is expressed.
Morrissey, the former vocalist of The Smiths and superstar solo artist made certain to emphasize that Prince “was a vegan, and a strong advocate of the abolition of the abattoir”, while unfortunately, bitterly dismissing the relevance of the 90th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch of Great Britain.
Whilst the seedy, conservative tabloid the Daily Mail Online published an interview with Prince’s alleged former drug dealer, whom states that he shared drug of choice in common with Elvis Presley.
Then there is the touching tribute from Lady Gaga in which she says on Instagram;
I tend to believe that when we die our souls hover for at least a moment if not longer before they either rest or are recycled into the consciousness of an already living being or maybe a newborn baby. Isn’t it amazing Prince shared his soul with us so deeply before his death, and now after we will be replenished endlessly by both his legacy and all that he still has to give from the beyond. Thank you for sharing your life with us Prince. Giving up your anonymity because you felt compelled to share your gift. We learned so much. You just found God early, he needed you upstairs to innovate in heaven.
Perhaps the best way to come to some peaceful terms with his passing is to listen to Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band open their set at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 with Prince’s Oscar winning song Purple Rain.
The Boss does Prince.
