Prince skriver självbiografi, ges ut våren 2017

Music from the Motion Picture "Purple Rain"

Prince – Purple Rain (Rhino Warner Bros.)

Häromdagen i New York på Avenue, klubben på Tenth Avenue:

”Prince appeared on a glass-lined balcony, descending a staircase and standing a few feet above us like a pastor or a king. He had a roundish cloud of hair and wore a gleaming gold-and-purple striped pajama suit. ‘The good people of Random House have made me an offer I can’t refuse!’ he said. He was writing a book, he told us.”

”You all still read books, right?” Prince asked. ”My brother Dan”—Dan Piepenbring of the Paris Review—”is helping with it. He’s a good critic. That’s what I need. Not a yes man.”

Citerat ur ”Prince Announces His Memoir, Funkily” av Sarah Larson i New Yorker, 19 mars 2016. Prince berättade att boken kommer börja med hans första minne och sträcka sig ”all the way to the Super Bowl.” Prince spelade under Super Bowl 2007, berättar Larson, ”in a torrential storm, singing ‘Let’s Go Crazy,’ ‘Baby I’m a Star,’ and ‘Purple Rain’ on an enormous illuminated Love Symbol, accompanied by dancers, fireworks, a glowing marching band, and a stadium full of backup singers. Like everything Prince does, it felt strangely mythic.”
