Prince Is A Purple Harbinger Of Light & Dreams For V Magazine

prince
Dearly beloved, we have gathered here today to get through this thing called V Magazine, and the absurd awesomeness of cover star Prince. The notoriously tight-lipped musician dropped some seriously surreal gems for the August issue and posed for Inez & Vinoodh, looking like a timeless magician here to bring both funk and flavor. The interview is apparently mind-blowing. Because, according to Prince, no one can satisfy you like Prince can satisfy you: “People come to see us fifty times. Well, that’s not just going to see a concert—that’s some other mess going on. This music changes you. These people are not being satisfied elsewhere by musicians, you feel what I’m saying? It’s no disrespect to anyone else, because we’re not checking for them. But we don’t lip synch. We ain’t got time for it. Ain’t no tape up there.”

V84_PRINCE_HR6 Another great quote from the piece, presented without comment. “This organization is different than most, in the sense that we don’t take directions from the outside world. It’s like a galaxy. The sun is in the center giving off energy, and everything revolves around it … Nobody really talks to me. Nobody talks to me a lot.” Prince, bringing you Poetry for the last 4 decades.
Last, but most certainly not least, he won't use a cell phone because according to him, it's annoying. He demonstrates this by mimicking a "high-pitched woman" asking, "Where is my phone? Can you call my phone? Oh, I can’t find it.” He sums it up simply, "Hell, no."
If only to be a fly on the wall of Prince's brain that is not quite a brain, but a purple universe of light and spirituality and love. We'd recommend going out and getting the issue immediately, and committing all of his Prince-isms to memory, stat.
