I've mùissed the opportunity to ask questions because I was on holiday but I wish to warmly thank June7 for making this happen, and Ms. Sharon Nelson for taking the time to interact with us. I hope this will open the door for more communication between the fans community and the P camp, and I'm also grateful that Sharon asked for our wishes in terms of future releases.

i thought the same thing. his website posted pictures he took of bria at the time, too.
plus his famous 'first selfie' and other picture. he was also pictured photographing the
papz with a decent looking camera, back in the lotusflower era or shortly before.

seems his interest in photography was something he got into in the last 10 years or so?

P did all the interior pictures for the Family's album, if I remember correctly.

In Part2 she answered a question that I think we all knew the answer to..In her opinion Denise was the love of his life.I believed that forever..She left him,he chose wives that looked similar to her..He stayed in contact with her.. Something he did not do normally with his exes.They are together in Heaven.

June7, I just wanted to thank you for putting this together. I can't imagine how difficult it has been for the family, knowing how difficult it has been for his fans. I appreciated the opportunity to personally send my sympathy, and to ask some questions. One thing that I was worried about, due to rumors and such of how lonely he may have been, was whether he knew he was so very loved by the world, and I'm glad she gave confirmation that he knew. I think, too often, we don't realize the impact that we do have on other people's lives, and just how loved we are, so I'm very glad he knew.

Umm, no, we all didn't know the answer to that. And again, it was her "opinion" which doesn't mean it was fact. Too often people confuse opinion with fact. I accept that her opinion was Denise was the love of his life, but the only one that can truly answer that is Prince, himself. I don't have an opinion on who the love of his life was, because it really doesn't matter. That part of his life was his private joy and really isn't our business. It doesn't matter who the love of his life was, because he lived his life his way and ultimately he wasn't with any of them at the end; ex-wives nor ex-girlfriends. And personally, I don't want to imagine Prince as someone who spent his life pining away over a woman. That is a painful experience and I don't wish that on him (or anyone for that matter).

Q: 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?


[Deleted - June7]

_____

The avatar was taken down before Prince's passing. I remember that. It was put up after he had to postpone the first Atlanta concerts and then was removed shortly the Atlanta concerts. I always thought it was put up because on April 7th, the caretaker of Fox Theater in Atlanta had passed away. Others speculated that it was put up because he had to postpone the Atlanta show and disappointing his fans, and because he wasn't feeling well. I thought that might be a part of it when the avatar was removed after the Atlanta concerts took place.



Someone on twitter said it was changed on march 22, my birthday so i remember the date they said. They could be wrong tho.

OT: thanks for asking my questions june 7. I wish i had asked more probing questions now seeing as someone asked her outright about Sister. Can we get a do-over? razz

Thank you for asking the question Purplebflogirl. I asked her about the Vanity 6 album and she didn't reply, but I liked your question much better than mine. You went straight for the kill. biggrin Her answer that Denise was the love of his life was very interesting since many people suspect that as well. I wonder what led her to have such an opinion? Something had to...

Wasn't he credited for the Koo Koo single cover? More useless trivia hanging out in my brain.

She made a point to draw a line between the heirs and the estate, divulging that they had no say in regards to estate matters. I found this confusing. I thought the heirs WERE the estate. And who is the estate if not the heirs, why do the heirs have no say, who is/are making the current estate decisions, and who authorized whomever is making the current decisions to do so? Why is the family asking fans what they would like to see released if they have no say in what gets released?

She also said to not hold our breath in regards to remasters but didn't elaborate. These seem like the easiest and most obvious choices for posthumous releases, but she implied otherwise. So what's the problem?

I think no matter what good or bad family knows you best, even if your at odds with family they are the people who know your good and bad the best. They likely experienced our good and bad. They are the ones with access. Access counts or else we wouldn't have tuned in for her answers. Best.

I got that vide too. I also got the impression that WB has total control over their releases, how long is not known as the details of the contract are not public.

I guess the PR remaster did not take into account Prince's inputs. This is total speculation from Sharon's comments.

Q: 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?

A: Believe me, we all will find out the truth!

Q&A From ORG Interview Sharon Nelson- Part 11

Q: Benni: What was it like for your brother growing up....?

A: Don’t believe everything that you hear, rumours are just that, Prince never followed rules, he did what he wanted, when he wanted even as a youth. He had a plan and didn’t care about the consequences.

My earlier take/opinion on his childhood during the Rise and Fall book club on 4/30/17 reply #74

I agree with all you. Also, it seemed to me that Prince had more of a huge support group that did their best to help him with his anger issues after the divorce. I know it may seem that his parents were careless in allowing him to stay at Andres' because she wasn't fond of him at the time, as Andre stated in an interview that when he would try to play with Prince his mom would always find something for him to do because Andre was hardheaded). I think it was a trial to gauge how it would work to maybe bring him some peace and allowed him to stay due to the positive effect it had on him, but his parents were always there. Although Prince sort of cleared up the public image of his relationship with his parents by admitting his anger issues that were perceived by him in his youth as abandonment were nothing more than his parents, teachers, BB coach, managers and record execs, trying to help discipline and guide him but he, unbeknownst to those helping him, being a natural born leader, rebelled against anyone he perceived as too restrictive, including his parents.

I'm glad this question was asked because it clears up the confusion of who he really was. I think this may have been some of the issues with his father who knew the picture of the events Prince allowed to be painted, never fully admitted at that time, his own responsibility.

But if you listen to music he is pining away, we hear it... that was it... right before us.


I don't think he was. He was a musician, performer, actor....he was there to put on a terrific show. And if you cling to her answer as the end all be all in confirming everything that a few are wanting to state here on this site, then you definitely have to give credit to her response here:


A: Prince wasn’t a big conflict person; he didn’t spend a lot of time dwelling on things if they didn’t work out.

In other words, Prince was not someone who would pine away for a love interest that didn't work out.

Or this answer:

Prince never followed rules, he did what he wanted, when he wanted even as a youth. He had a plan and didn’t care about the consequences.

Or this:


Absolutely not, he never expressed regrets and he did what he wanted to do

From her answers of who Prince was, how he responded to conflict and other aspects of his, Prince was just simply not one to pine away for anyone. If he wanted to be with Denise, Prince would be someone who would not take "no" for an answer and would have moved heaven and earth to be with that person. That drive, that inability to take "no" for an answer, is what drove him through is career and it would also have driven him in his relationships. Prince did what Prince wanted to do and always moved forwards. He was not one to look backwards. And I think there is a biblical reason why he would not look back. If you read the Bible, the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, Lot's wife looked back and turned to a pillar of salt. If you know anything about Prince, it is how deeply he believed in Bible and how hard (especially in his later years) he tried to follow the teachings in the Bible. I think that is one that would have stayed with him.

Why would you want to think he felt them? Not everyone lives with regret in their lives. Not everyone looks back and clings to past loves. I have no regrets in my life, but one, and that is that I haven't written the great American novel yet - but there is still time. I have no regrets about my past relationships, about how they worked out. I don't pine away over my long lost love, though I will admit that I did in my youth, but with maturity comes understanding and a release of such things. And I can assure you, I am definitely human and definitely of this world.

Don't try to place Prince in some box that you can identify with, because he won't fit in that box. Just appreciate who he was and what he gave the world. His past relationships are over and done with and there will be no more relationships. And, as I said before, I would hate to imagine him pining away after a long lost love, because that hurts like crazy, and I don't want to imagine him hurting.

Well, Sharon answered my question about her favorite memory of Prince as a child so I'm a happy camper! She gave her opinion on who was Prince's love of his life and I tend to agree with her. This part of the questionaire seems to be more upbeat and in a happier tone than the 1st part. I think she's not very happy with WB at this time either. I hope that she and the rest of the family will be able to make some headway with what is going to be released in the near future. I am saddened that Prince's passing shocked her (and other family members) as it did the rest of us. I assumed after Tyka's statements ('I've known for 2 years') that the other members of the family knew something was up with his health. It is very touching that Sharon said that it's still hard for her to see grieving fans. I'm happy that she says that Prince knew how much he was loved by us all! Thank you Sharon for answering my question and giving me another little glance at the man who is such a huge part of my life and soul!!!!
