Prince

Prince came before it was a social crime to stretch gender and sexuality. He was not condemned, for perhaps people had no guiding principle, from facebook, in terms of how to react, so they did so instinctively. He sexualised women whilst sexualising himself. And was a true pioneer in this regard who could only have done what he did in an era where so much social upheaval was happening that gender politics were of little concern, only his sound mattered…

Looking back over his catalogue and he comes to seem more and more a fierce, open, immensely sincere hero of lost times. Seeking not mainly the accolades for his style, just to be heard and felt and maybe, to find his efforts inspiring to others hiding behind the facades society have placed upon them.

Prince wouldn’t have survived in this era. Too sweet. Too sexual with no judgement yet prone to judgement. Loving and helping and giving his everything to beautiful women is no crime. Neither is raising a Woman to a platform of divinity and climbing up towards her in song and prance…when she feels like your universe, your everything. And you want to tell the world your story…
