VioletNevermind November 15, 2018 Share November 15, 2018 (edited) I just mustered the strength to watch this. Oh my dear Lord . . . my poor Prince. My blood has run purple for the last 35 years, so I'm probably the last person who can comment on this with any impartiality, but here I am. This was an utter disgrace and he would never have cosigned it. Ditto for the Capital One commercial airing now that's using "Let's Go Crazy." At the risk of waxing poetic, the entire thing felt like a cheap, hastily thrown together mockery of a beautiful, sensitive, kind soul who lived and breathed the creation of music. One of the things that was (ugh, that past tense still hurts) so wonderful about Prince was that he and his music spanned genres and races. His music actually united people of different colors, backgrounds, and ages. The scenes of people mourning outside Paisley Park on 4/21/16 was proof of that. One of my life's little pleasures since he passed is the wonderful conversations that are sparked with all different kinds of people when you learn that someone is a major Prince fan. I've been told a couple of times that I don't "look like a Prince fan." My response is always: "I'm not sure what a Prince fan is supposed to look like, but this one looks like me." All respect to differing opinions. YMMV, as always. Edited November 15, 2018 by SuzyLee 17 Link to comment
