Can we open the privacy for this Notable profile?
This profile is privacy locked due to him being attached to a living child who is a WT member. Emma
I'm not on the Trusted List, but I can see her linked as his daughter. So the Yellow status isn't affecting that. If the concern is that she could be removed, then can't we make him PPP instead of Yellow privacy? (Sorry if I am being obtuse here)
this profile is now open for editing. Thanks!
"When I'm writing [songs], some days the pen just goes. I'm not in charge and I'm almost listening outside of it. That's when I realize that we all have to start looking at life as a gift. It's like listening to a color and believing that these colors have soul mates and once you get them all together the painting is complete."

Prince

Thank you so much for your Purple Love you gave to us through your music and interviews! Cause, through it all...you taught me how to stand up for myself, how to not care what others thought about me, how to protect my well being, how to be proud of myself and most of all, to unconditionally love all of me. You were much more than a Rock Star, you were a beautiful example of how to shamelessly live life as authentically possible, how to learn from mistakes and apply those lesson to do better, no matter what. You were, are now and always be "The Beautiful One!"

See you in the Afterwrold when I get there! 💜

Scott, If you do an internet search, you will find that Prince had no surviving legally recognized children. Can you please share the story or sources that this Notable had an adult daughter named Heather ???
posted by N Gauthier
I don't know where this Heather came from either. I have been totally into Prince since I was 17 years old and I am 58 years old now. I have every album of his, every interview of his on my hard drive, mag articles, you name it. NEVER EVER has he said a word about having a daughter. There are a lot of claims that came forth after his precious soul went to the Afterworld, that have all been debunked. I would have to see hard core evidence that this Heather is is daughter, besides what's said in her profile, before I believe it. Unless there is, that connection should be hidden to accurately preserve Prince's legacy.

"Dearly beloved

We are gathered here today 2 get through this thing called life

Electric word life It means forever and that's a mighty long time But I'm here to tell you There's something else The afterworld

A world of never ending happiness U can always see the sun, day or night"

RIP Prince ?

May the bass and the music continue on in the after life. You'll be missed.

Rest in peace, brother. You will be missed. Your music contributed to many good times and memories. Particularly, a wild, alcohol-induced karaoke session I once witnessed. Also, when Julia Roberts sang your song in Pretty Woman. Classic moments.
