Kidding, the design was the work of Gene Hanson, a farmer in North Dakota and he got it right on the first try. Which is a good thing, I can’t imagine what a pain in the ass it is to screw up a crop circle and have to start all over again. Read more about it here.
I feel like alien crop-circles are played out and they probably opted to celebrate Prince with a dance party on a custom-painted purple space ship.
Will.i.am not only shares a hilarious story about the career-long rivalry between Prince and Michael Jackson, he actually does fantastic impressions. Although if you ask Prince there was never a competition but I guess you can’t ask him now 🙁 So go back and watch this interview from 1997 when he explains why he wouldn’t duet with MJ on “Bad”.
After the passing of Prince, it is quite obvious that time machines are far more important than all this “Get the hell off earth before it blows, Mission to Mars” crap. As I have said numerous times, WE WILL ONLY USE IT FOR MUSIC.
Just imagine what it will be like when we teleport to this party.
Then we can take a short trip to see this guitar solo at The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. We can even time at 3:25 so we’re not gone long.
BTW YOU KNOW PRINCE ALREADY HAD A TIME MACHINE AND HE’S PROBABLY AT A JIMI HENDRIX/JAMES BROWN SHOW RIGHT NOW SO DON’T TELL ME IT ISN’T POSSIBLE.
Did you ever go through a phase when you didn’t like Prince? I did.
Which sucked because I remember the first time I heard “Let’s Go Crazy” and how I couldn’t take my eyes off this little man doing the splits in stilettos…but as time went on I started hearing more stories and I loathed his blatant narcissism. How dare he tell people they couldn’t look him in the eye. Do you remember that? If not, read this.
However thanks to the following hilarious stories, I started to appreciate that little purple pain in the ass, his outlandish idiosyncrasies and his music…. all over again.
Obligatory Charlie Murphy/Dave Chappelle “True Hollywood Stories” reenactment.
Update! Jimmy Fallon’s Ping Pong Challenge!
Finding Nemo and Prince will always be synonymous to Questlove.
Kevin Smith and his need for a Prince translator.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to celebrate his eccentric life by listening to Prince DNA and crying purple tears.
