It was way back in the early eighties as a groupie with a backstage pass. In the same room with Prince? I may have walked away that night with only a handshake, but it was a handshake that changed my life for the better. It awoken a desire to be an entertainer like this Demi god that just shook my hand..
From that night, I became an avid fan. I read and followed any news on him, I listened with rapt attention. The more I researched him the more I fell in love with him, you can take that literally. If I ever had any gay tendencies, he would have been the one I would have given my body to, even though Prince wasn’t gay. That’s how deep my love is for this beautiful soul. Rumors circled him because he had such a defiantly outlandish persona with a sexuality as ambiguous as it was voracious. Oh my Prince”
