“A woman every day should be thanked, not disrespected, not raped or spanked.”

From the very beginning, music was in Prince’s blood. His family was into music and the singer wrote his first song Funk Machine on his dad’s piano when he was just seven years old. When asked about birthday, his lookout on life and death, Prince had once told an interviewer, "I know that you had one birthday. You were born on a certain day. You had no more birthdays after that…. I don’t celebrate birthdays, so that stops me from counting days, which stops me from counting time, which allows me to still look the same as I did 10 years ago.“ Lana Del Rey Faces Backlash After Sharing Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's Old Pics on Instagram.
His philosophy was intriguing and we got to credit him for thinking so differently. He might have gone too far, but his music lives on forever. Join us in wishing Prince a very happy birthday, where ever he is now.
