What were his favourite tv shows as a kid/teenager?

Hi Sharon xo
Thank you for giving your time to answer our questions 💕
Prince is still living in our hearts, we love him like no other, he gave so much in so many ways. On a personal level his death still affects me, I am now familia with a new kind of hurt... I know life goes on and I know Prince would want us to be happy enjoying his music... 💜

My question to u is about the estate - is the estate going to release music that Prince would be against releasing?
There are so many things happening that we know he would not have done
Eg music streaming, YouTube, songs with swearing....

How do u feel about all this that's going on? Is it something u agree with?
This has become so very confusing for many fans because we knew what Prince stood for, he was a massive part of our lives - we lived and breathed his music and we all know what he wanted, he made it clear to the entire world.....

So in order for many to feel like they r not betraying Prince, can you please help us understand what the estate is about....

Hi Sharon, thanks for taking the time to answer some questions. I apologise in advance if this is not something you are willing or able to discuss, emotionally or legally. But if you can, please could you tell us about what you know regarding the months prior to Prince's passing and what he was dealing with? There is so much congecture, tabloid gossip and general confusion surrounding everything that a first hand account would help to clear things up and, no doubt, provide closure to many. I guess in a nutshell my question is: What on earth happened and why?

Many thanks and, one again, apologies for bring up what can only be a difficult topic to talk about.



I too share this sentiment and question. I also send my condolences to you and your family.

Hello Sharon, It was always rumored that Prince kept notebooks of lyrics, ideas, sketches. Prince would write everything down? Do you remember him doing this at an early age? I think us fans would go crazy for a book of handwritten lyrics and ideas. The latest books releases were beautiful, appreciate the book of music instruments. We fans are also still sad over the loss of Prince and can't imagine how tough it was been for family.

Make that three (thousand, at least). smile

.
Just to add my own thoughts - Prince was a one-off; he will be forever missed and mourned, even by those of us who knew him only through his music. My deepest sympathies go out to those with whom he shared 'real' bonds.

.

To that end, I guess I'd like to know your thoughts on the relationships he had with women...Assuming he had lots of lovers (if that is even true) - what would you say it was about him that enabled him to stay friends with most / all of them? It is so unusual for there to be no nay-sayers coming out of the woodwork!

Thank you for agreeing to interview!

Did your brother also use shorthand (like "4" for "for", "U" for "you", etc.) when corresponding with you?

Thanks for taking the time to communicate with us hardcore fans.
We are all with you on your families sad loss.

We are all very worried about what will happen to the vault material and other possible remasters etc...
Could you please put our worries to bed and please tell us if all or any of the Warner albums will get remastered?
Will the vault material get the proper promotion and released on all formats?
Have you personally ever been in the vault?
If so could you discribe what you have seen?
Thanks for your time.

Dear Sharon,
has the behaviour of some people around you changed, since Prince's death?
Are some people acting strangely submissive towards you and the rest of the family?
If so:
Is it rather frightening or enjoyable?
How do you handle it?

A crazy high school kid sent him a letter about a quarter of a Century ago, telling him what the song "Still Would Stand All Time" meant to him - at a very difficult time in his life. Did he get it? smile (Probably the only letter he would have got from INDIA!) (and at that point, I think I still hadn't heard SOTT!!!!!!! - that is to say, Adore or IIWYG!)

Hi Sharon Nelson! hug

Thanks for considering our questions!

We know Prince was often writing poetry along with lyrics of course. He also displayed an interest in photography. WOuld there ever be a chance we'd see a book with his photography and poetry together. Tha would be quite a special item. I, for one, would love to see the world through his camera lens. Just a thought smile

Love4OneAnother,

~ForeverPaisley

This would be wonderful. A book with the pages Prince had already written (both submited and the ones written but yet to be submitted), poetry, written down thoughts, letters, photos of favourite items (like stuff sent out by fans that he kept, fan letters, mementos from tours and places and friends that he personally kept) and especially photographs taken by him. <3

Co-signed in a big way. thumbs up!

Dear Ms. Sharon,

Thank you for your time.

I remember on the day Prince passed there was an avatar of Prince's face on his Twitter with his eyes closed and a teardrop falling.

It was removed just as quickly as soon as the news hit the world.

Do you know who put the picture up and removed it?

Warm wishes rose

'cause you got to know...how I feel about you babe

Hello Sharon, as everyone has stated and feels, thank you very much for interacting with all of us who so deeply and genuinely love and appreciate your dear brother, Prince.

All the questions posted so far are excellent. For me personally, I have the following:

1. Will the estate be able to keep Paisley Park running and functional and host tours and events for the foreseeable future - for several years to come?

2. When will unreleased music and video footage from the Vault start to be released and what is the plan on handling this huge project?

3. Will Prince's final memoir work that he personally penned, even though it was never completed, be released and when?

Much love,
AnnaStesia10

Giving us this opportunity, I personally don't know what I can ask in regards to PP, music and continuing the legacy. I mean it's one thing to ask directly the man himself but living in the present, there are too many people involved and handling all of this.

With that being said, I am hoping the following I ask is acceptable

* U appeared alongside with ur father in a 1991 interview 4 A Current Affair. Were both u and ur father ever on good terms with ur brother since that was aired?

* As of 2day, can u describe ur relationship with the other 5 heirs?

* If possible, can u tell us the story behind this picture of u and ur brother?

Hi Sharon!

Thanking u in advance. My sincerest and deepest condolences go out 2 u and your beautiful family. We as fans r having a hard time getting through this thing call life without Prince.

I would like 2 know how did u and your love ones handle the sincere outpour of love given to Prince from around the WORLD after his untimely passing. 2 name a few, The Rainbow over Paisley Park, NASA all lit up in Purple, The Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, The New Yorker Magazine cover, etc. The world was Purple in honor of your beloved brother. Paisley Park fence was absolutely breath taking with the balloons, flowers, and posters, ribbons u name it. It was so beautifully displayed by beloved fans from around the world. The wall Murals of his beautiful face painted by fans everywhere.

With this being said, I know your life has changed 4ever. I sincerely hope u and your family continue working 2gether in keeping his legacy alive. We as fans will do the same.

Hello, Sharon,

Thank you for agreeing to answer questions from fans about your brother and sincere condolences to you and your family.

Prince had a special relationship with his fans, it's not every artist who holds 'Celebration' events at their home, or will play so many intimate aftershow gigs. There was the mystique of his persona on the one hand, but also a willingness to engage on a more personal level too and that always fascinated me.

Why do you think he put himself out there as an artist in such a way?

Craig.

With obvious respect and condolences to Sharon and Prince's family, my only question would be simply: "What happened to Prince?" the how and the why, that led Prince to die the way he did.

We are heartbroken, but there are so many unanswered questions that will never go away and to ignore them doesn't serve to protect anyone or his legacy in the long-run.

If we all knew the truth his legacy would be strengthened by people's empathy for his courage and beliefs if he was suffering before he passed. We often hear about protecting his legacy, but knowing the truth about his situation and his strength or his decisions to deal with whatever his malady was, would only serve to empower him to all of us and lead the world to know how he achieved so much in the face of adversity.

Even if the truth may shock us, by letting his legacy be tarnished by the association of drug addiction, is to many obviously not the full picture nor the correct one. Only then will the true nature, and significance, of his legacy to be revealed and preserved.

We miss him terribly, and I am sure that the Nelson family feels this a thousand times over and is torn by everything that has happened since Prince passed. I hope at least in part his legacy will eventually find you some peace and bring you closer together as a family.

Hi Ms. Nelson,

First, I just want to say how very sorry I am for your (our) loss. There was only one Prince and there will never be another like him. He touched so many peoples lives, influenced so many artists, and was deeply loved the world over. I can't imagine how hard it is for those that were closest to him, knew and loved him, and was loved by him, to get through the constant reminders of that loss. We all loved him here on the org and we miss him. So, I can only imagine how difficult this time has been for you.

Others have asked about the music, the vault, videos, CDs, etc. I guess my questions are:

1. Did Prince know he was so very loved by so many people?
2. Was the mystique that he developed as a star, truly a part of him and come naturally, or was it something he had to work at?
3. What is your greatest memory of Prince, as a brother?
4. What was it like for your brother growing up? There have been rumors of what he experienced as a child, and I know those things can shape a person as they develop, who they become, but how did those things effect Prince (if those rumors are true)?
5. In your opinion, what would Prince want us, the fans, to know, to take with us from this point onward?

One Love,
benni

Hi Ms Sharon

My deepest condolences to you and your family. Thanks for agreeing to speak to us about your brother. I just wanted you to give a little bit of a background of how you worked with Prince early on and possibly when he went to NY early on. Also anything you can share with regards to Prince's passing as we are all still trying to come to terms with this.
