Tavis Smiley: The Prince I knew
Quote:
But when my youth foundation was celebrating its 10th year, I asked him to headline an anniversary fundraiser. He consented, and then played an intimate performance at Club Nokia in Los Angeles that still ranks as my all-time favorite show, even though I've seen him countless times around the globe. He invited my guests and friends on stage to sing with him. That evening his Royal Badness made everybody feel like royalty. About 3 a.m. he called me at home to ask what we'd raised, so I told him. The next day, a six-figure check showed up in our foundation account to match every dollar we'd raised. My man. Many times I know that he quietly wrote big checks. When I was raising money over the radio for the forgotten victims of 9/11, again, he sent me a whopper of a check. But he'd never let me tell. Well, now, it can be told.

EXCLUSIVE: Prince's former drug dealer tells how the legend spent $40,000 at a time on six-month supplies of Dilaudid pills and Fentanyl patches - highly addictive opioid pain killers - for 25 years
Quote:

Doctor D said the musician, who he described as 'majorly addicted', regularly bought drugs from him between 1984 and 2008.

The dealer, often to the stars, said Prince suffered crippling stage fright and could not get on stage and perform without the drugs - but had a phobia of doctors so could not obtain a prescription legally.

Tragically, Doctor D suggests it could have been a physician that unknowingly contributed to Prince's death - by prescribing strong pain killers to the singer for his hip condition without knowing the extent of his secret opiate addiction.

He said: 'I first met Prince in 1984 while he was filming the movie Purple Rain and he was already majorly addicted to opiates - I didn't hook him on drugs he was already a really heavy user.

Janelle Monae Breaks Her Silence After the Death of Her Mentor Prince: 'He Stood for the Weirdos'

Quote:
Monae performed two of Prince's songs, "Take Me with U" and "Let's Go Crazy," in addition to her own set, and talked about his legacy throughout her time onstage.

"He stood for the weirdos. He stood for the unique and he stood for those who couldn't stand up for ourselves," she said. "This is a time when we have to protect ourselves as human beings. Not black or white. As human beings."

After her performance, Monae, who collaborated with Prince on "Givin' 'Em What They Love" on her The Electric Lady album, continued to eulogize the late star on Twitter.

"Truthfully, I am in a state of shock & disbelief that my close friend, my confidante, & hero has passed," she wrote. "This is a different kind of pain."

The Minnesota Twins are doing a full tribute to Prince this Monday. Every single player will be using a different song of his as their walk up music and they will also all be wearing purple wristbands.

They also announced that Little Red Corvette will be Target Field's official 7th inning stretch song for the rest of the season...and perhaps even longer.

Bowie & Prince within months of each other is just too much Crying or Very sad
Two of the absolute greatest of the greats.
But the reactions in both cases have been beautiful and moving.

I feel like my childhood is being pulled out from under my feet. However, I have to remember how blessed I've been to witness such legends (Prince, Bowie, MJ, Whitney, etc.) in my lifetime. Their work is immortal, but they are fragile human beings.

He hosted SNL last night. He was telling a story about the 40th anniversary show's after party. He turned a 2 minute story into a 10 minute name-dropping session. He was going on and on and on about who was there, with interruptions saying that he promised that he would get to the Prince portion. Then he went on with more name-dropping.

Typical Jimmy and why I don't watch him. He's too much like Letterman. Legends in their own mind's.

They had 90 minutes to fill and probably less than 90 minutes material. He was the filler.

Commercials would have been better.
