💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽 1-2) Prince sung about Uptown often being a popular area in Minneapolis so its only befitting that there is a mural of him there. This mural was painted by the creative talent @cyfione 3-5))Hard Rock Cafe -Mall of America A)Purple Rain jacket B) guitar of NPG bassist (1996- 2004)Rhonda Smith C) The Time's lead guitarist, Jesse Johnson and his G & L guitar. 6)IDS Center Crystal Court is where a few scenes in Purple Rain were filmed. In the film Prince can be seen looking into the window of a store in IDS. 7)This is the booth in Rudolph's in Minneapolis where Prince supposedly held court daily to grab food while working on music after he signed his first record deal. 8-9) While on my Purple Pilgrimage there were several utility boxes with images of Prince drawn on them. This is one that I stopped to take a picture of. 10) I snapped a picture of the sign that sat in front of family owned Chanhassen Inn, a place many Prince fans stayed on visits to Paisley Park since it was in close proximity. Chanhassen Inn closed this past Spring after 36 years.💜 #prince #princethursdays #paisleypark #princemural #cyfione #purplehippie #purple #npgmusicclub #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #purplefam #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tambourine #purplerain #purplerainjacket #rhondasmith #jessejohnson #IDScrystalcourt #Rudolphs #ChanhassenInn #gonetoosoon #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #Uptownminneapolis #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽 Here are a few more places I visited during my Purple Pilgramage that had Prince connections. 1-2)Even 🎯 Target @target at Nicollet Mall recognizes the talent that is Prince. 3)Capri Theater is where Prince played his first hometown concert in 1979 after signing with Warner Bros. 4-6) Bunkers Bar & Grill would often get impromptu jam sessions from the Purple One himself. 7-8) Orpheum Theatre-Minneapolis is seen prominently in Purple Rain The movie. The green room scenes were shot here due to lack of space at First Avenue. 8-9) Dakota Jazz Club and Restuarant hosted 6 Prince concerts in 2013 as well as "surprise" concerts. Prince attended his last concert here on April 19, 2016 as a spectator.💜🕊 #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #target #nicolletmall #capritheater #bunkersbarandgrill #dakotajazzclub #orpheumminneapolis #paisleypark #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE 👈🏽 Prince married his first wife, NPG band member/dancer Mayte Garcia 22 years ago at this very church- Park Avenue United Methodist Church. As a youth Prince participated in the summer ministries here as well as traveled on several mission trips. Through the years Prince would discreetly attend Park Ave UMC church services without being detected by the congregation. Sadly, in 2000 Prince and Mayte would divorce.🕊 #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #mayte #maytegarcia #paisleypark #wedding #multicultural #parkavenueunitedmethodistchurch #valentinesday #NPG #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽 During my Purple pilgramage in Minnesota I made a point to visit all the Prince murals in the area. Here is a mural on the patio at NE Palace painted by the gifted @rasterms37 James Monk. 🔥🔥🔥If you are in Minneapolis for the Original NPG concert 2night at First Ave or just visiting make sure to stop by and snap your picture.😎 #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #jamesmonk #rasterms37 #artwork #NEPalace #mural #paisleypark #NPG #NPG4ever #NPG4life #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #nothingcompares2u #diamondsandpearls #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinminnesota #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽Yet another home important in Prince's timeline where he would visit his mother, Mattie Shaw and his step-father Hayward Baker. Prince also owned this lovely property at the time of his passing. #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #icon #earlyyears #paisleypark #purplehippie #memoriesinminneapolis #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #goldenvalley #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 SWIPE👈🏽 Yeeeeeeessss! The Time! Morris Day and The Time! The Original 7ven! Yea ALL that! They are that too C-O-O-L band from Minneapolis, THE TIME! Yes, they too are immortalized outside of the famous First Ave. club where The Time's performances here were highlighted in Prince's Purple Rain the Movie. Shout out to The Stray Cats with their star just below. They had some hits too i.e. Rock This Town. Prince's record deal gave him the opportunity to find new talent and produce. The Time band members are ALL legendary talented musicians no matter the line-up. The Time was comprised of members of another local Minneapolis band called Flyte Time which included Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Alexander O'neal, Jellybean Johnson, Monte Moir, and David Eiland. Morris Day and Jesse Johnson were later added coming from yet another local Minneapolis band called "Enterprise." Did you know that Alexander O'neal was to be the lead singer of The Time? Alexander left the group and Morris Day stepped into his own pair of fresh Stacy Adams. C-O-O-L!!!👞😎🤣💜 #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #thetime #morrisdayandthetime #theoriginal7ven #flytetyme #enterprise #paisleypark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #thebird #COOL #thestraycats #rockthistown #icecreamcastles #7779311 #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE 👈🏽Yep, I am standing in front of another childhood home of Prince. In 1972 Prince's father, John L. Nelson would purchase this home. Prince would stay here with his father often as a youngster. During this time Prince was writing and playing his Father's piano perfecting his craft to be the musician the world would know and love. Prince would go on to move his father into the legendary Purple house where he lived until his passing. Prince was the owner of this property at the time of his passing.💜🎸🎹🎶 #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #johnlnelson #piano #paisleypark #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #earlyyears #neighborhoods #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 SWIPE👈🏽 Today is such a sad day but I am happy to know that three talented souls are free from the troubles of this earth.  Today 41 years ago Elvis Presley passed away in his home here in Memphis,TN.  Inside of Rudolph's restaurant in Minneapolis, one of Prince's favorite spots in the early years is a mural of famous celebs and of course Elvis is included. Ironically, this morning we lost yet another ICON, native Memphian and Detroit legend Aretha Franklin.  Aretha and Elvis never crossed paths but Elvis was a fan of her music.  Now you know the welcoming concert for Re Re tonight in heaven will be EPIC!!!! Aretha said that Prince was a "unique musical individual." Indeed he was and you were as well Aretha!!💜💜💜 Photos: 1,2,3,4 Elvis in mural inside Rudolph's and entrance.

💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 SWIPE👈🏽 It's Elvis week in my beloved hometown Memphis, Tennessee right now.  It never fails no matter where I travel there is always a picture of Elvis Presley, a street named after him, a poster, etc. While on a mission to see all of the Prince memorabilia at The Mall of America's Hard Rock Cafe there he was in a booth, Elvis Presley along with one of his karate uniforms as Elvis was a student of martial arts. You can see Bob Dillion's silhoutte as well who is also a Minnesota native like Prince. Elvis meant a lot to his fans just like Prince is so very much missed by those who loved him and his music. Millions of people are ascending on Memphis to visit Graceland to celebrate Elvis's life.  Since Paisley Park is open to tourist visits so many purple hippies like myself have made the journey to Paisley Park. Prince and Elvis were both great entertainers. Prince has covered Elvis songs during performances such as Jailhouse Rock and All Shook Up. Ironically, Graceland Holdings now operates Paisley Park as a tourist attraction as well as Elvis' Graceland. You two are truly missed!💜🎶🎵🎸🎤🎼 #prince #elvis #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #elvisaaronpresley #elvispresley #paisleypark #graceland #memphis #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #elvisweek #mallofamerica #hardrockcafe #jailhouserock #allshookup #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽Prince and then highschool classmate Andre Simon "Cymone" Anderson would become fast friends over their shared love of music. Prince and his father began having disagreements. Soon after Prince would ask his mother if he could go and live with the Johnson family (1972-1977). This is Andre Cymone's childhood home where he and Prince would hone their musician skills. Prince and Andre joined the band Grand Central and Prince and Andre would go on to join funk band 94 East formed by Pepe Willie, Prince's cousins ex-husband. #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #andrecymone #theandersons #whenfriendsbecomefamily #pepewillie #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #princeearlyyears #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #diamondsandpearls #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 SWIPE👈🏽 Prince's father, John Nelson lived in these apartments between 1970 through 1972. During this time Prince would ask his mother Mattie could he go and live with his father. Around this time Prince and Andre Cymone were becoming best friends more like musical brothers.🎸🎶🎵🎼🎤 #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #johnnelson #fatherandson #apartment #earlydays #purplerain #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #musicians #music #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜Prince Thursdays💜SWIPE LEFT👈🏽 While sight seeing in Uptown, the very poplar artist hang out area in Minneapolis I stopped by Calhoun Square shopping district which is also the third track (song) on the second disc of Prince's 20th album Crystal Ball. Prince hung out here often with friends in the early years. As you stroll by stores the lyrics of the song "Calhoun Square" are on display in the middle of the mall for all to see. Prince also has a song called Uptown which is on the Dirty Mind album. Since my visit many new stores have opened plus more Prince tribute items have been added. #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #CalhounSquare #CalhounSquareMN #Uptown #shopping #mall #purple #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #gonetoosoon #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE 👈🏽 Yep, here I stand in front of another childhood home of Prince where he lived with his parents Mattie Shaw and John Nelson. Prince resided here between 1965 to 1970. Prince's parents divorced in 1968 and his mother re-married in 1970 to Hayward Baker. Prince would soon ask his mother to let him go live with his father John Nelson. #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #princechildhoodhome #earlyyears #growingpains #youngmusician #paisleypark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #foreverprince #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽 I am standing in front of the 40ft mural of our beloved Prince surrounded by doves which is on the side of Chanhassen Cinema where Prince would often come to watch the current movies. This mural was created by New Zealand native Graham Hoete @mrghoete.art also known as Mr. G. Mr. G. painted a mural of Prince in Sydney, Australia and the response was so overwhelming from Prince fans in the US for him to do a mural in Prince's home state Minnesota. It was suggested that he reach out to Chanhassen Cinema to do the mural and the rest is history!!!! Check out other works by Mr. G @mrghoete.art 🔥🔥🔥Make sure while you are on your Purple pilgrimage to check out this mural and catch a movie too!💜 #Prince #Princethursdays #PrinceRogersNelson #GrahamHoete #MrG #whendovescry #artist #chanhassencinema #mural #paisleypark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #adventuresinchanhannsen #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen   #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽🍒🌛Prince aka Christopher Tracy said "If you wanted to buy a Sam Cook album, where would you go?" Mary answers, "The Wrecka Stow!!!"🤣😆 A hilarious scene from Prince's movie Under The Cherry Moon.🎬📽🍒🌛 So glad I was able to stop by one of Prince's @prince favorite Wrecka Stows to buy music @electricfetusmpls Electric Fetus in Minneapolis. This place is AWEsome!!! They still have vinyl albums.😍 There was road construction going on when I stopped by which made it slightly tedious to get good pictures outside. Prince made what would be his last visit to Electric Fetus just a week before his passing. 😢 Electric Fetus recently celebrated 50 years of being in business. If you are ever in Minneapolis make sure you stop by! Sooo many cute Prince related items.💜Happy 50th @electricfetusmpls 💃🏽🙆🏽‍♀️🎶🎵 #Prince #PrinceThursdays #ElectricFetus #Wreckastow #UnderTheCherryMoon #Princecoaster #purplehippie #albums #music #vinyl #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #samcook #christophertracy #adventuresinchanhannsen  #Purple #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 SWIPE LEFT👈🏽 Purple Rain the movie was released in theatres on June 25, 1984. On next Monday it will be 34 years that Prince & the Revolution, Morris Day and The Time electrified the world with the story of love, family, friendship, heartache, clublife and musicianship. Here I stand in front of the legendary Pure Rain House as well as a view of the back of the home. This is the actual house that was used in the movie. At the time of Prince's death he was the owner of this home which was in need of much repair at the time of purchase. I would like to believe that Prince may have planned to refurbish this home and make it into a museum for his fans to come and re-live a magical cinema moment which is Purple Rain!💜 #Prince #princethursdays #purplerain #PurpleRainAnniversary #PurpleRainTheMovie #purplerainhouse #purplehair #therevolution #morrisdayandthetime #paisleypark #LetsGoCrazy #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #cinemagold #purplehair #purplewig #june25 #34years #gonetoosoon #thebeautifulones #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tambourine #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #love4oneanother #love
💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 SWIPE LEFT👈🏽 Soon after Prince was born at Mount Sinai Hospital it is here in these apartments that he would first live with his loving parents Mattie Shaw and John L. Nelson.

💜PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE LEFT👈🏽 Sixty years ago on this day Prince Rogers Nelson was born here 👆🏽 at Mount Sinai Hospital which is now Allina Health Phillips Eye Institute in Minneapolis to talented parents Mattie Shaw and John L. Nelson. Mount Sinai hospital opened in 1951 for Jewish Doctors to practice medicine without discrimination during that era and closed in 1991 just one year after merging with Metropolitan Medical Center.

#PRINCETHURSDAYS 💜 I want to give an early Happy Birthday shout out to @lennykravitz Lenny Kravitz whose birthday is this Saturday, May 26th. This photo was taken outside of the Legendary First Avenue that is featured in Purple Rain the movie.💜 If you didn't know, Lenny used the moniker of Romeo Blue early in his music career. Prince & Lenny shared the stage on numerous occasions and can be seen together in the Rave u2 the Year 2000 video. #Prince #LennyKravitz #RomeoBlue #FirstAve #FirstAvenue #Raveun2theYear2000 #princethursdays #happybirthdaylenny #paisleypark #flyaway #americanwoman #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen   #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
PRINCE THURSDAYS💜I had the pleasure of eating at Rudolph's Bar-B-Que in Uptown Minneapolis named after Legendary actor Rudolph Valentino. This restuarant is a part of early Prince music history. It is here where Prince dined daily when he first got his record deal. His first apartment wasn't far from the restaurant. I did not realize until midway my meal that I was sitting under the Purple Rain poster. My food was good too! #Prince #Princethursdays #RudolphsBBQ #paisleypark #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #purplerainposter #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tambourine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen  #goodfood #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #bbq #love4oneanother #love #breakfast #chicken
PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽In 1977 Prince, Andre Cymone, and Bobby Z recorded the legendary Loring Park sessions inside of then manager Owen Husney's office at historic 430 Oak Park.  Prince first met Bobby Z in Owen's office as he was some what of an assistant to Owen. Bobby Z would go on to become the drummer for Prince and The Revolution. A plaque has been placed outside of the old recording studio plus Andre Cymone and Owen Husney have signed the wall where the recording studio/office was located which is now an apartment. Lori Holmquist, People of Paisley Park assisted in bringing everyone together for this historic moment.

PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE LEFT👈🏽 Here I am in front of the former Uptown Minneapolis NPG store. Did you ever get to shop in one of Prince's New Power Generation stores? If so, what did you buy? The current business, Go Home Furnishings kept the purple door in tact. Sigh!😢 If you were a member of the NPG Music Club you were able to shop online and snag all of the Purple Ones music, fragrances, clothing etc.etc.....after the storefronts closed. I bought one of Prince's signature ear cuffs among other things from the NPG Music Club store.🤣🤣🤣💜💜💜 Photos📸📸📸📸 1) Former New Power Generation Store original door. 2 & 3) Current store owner, Go Home furnishings showing off the purple door. 4 & 5) Prince mural & symbol still inside current store to remember him. 6 -10) New Power Generation Store file footage #prince #princethursdays #NPGstore #NewPowerGeneration #uptown #purpledoor #NewPowerGenerationMusicClub #paisleypark #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #purple #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #NPG #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #gohomefurnishings #love
PRINCE THURSDAYS💜"Baby I'm A Star" is a song on Prince's Purple Rain album. Prince and The Revolution performed this song live in the Purple Rain movie at First Avenue.

PRINCE THURSDAYS💜If you are ever in Minnesota you have to stop by the @mallofamerica Mall of America. It is truly a shoppers paradise.🛍You name the designer or brand more than likely there is a self standing store inside this mall. I stopped inside The Hard Rock Cafe and stumbled upon a booth that pays tribute to the late George Harrison, lead guitarist for the Beatles. Prince joined Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne, Dhani Harrison and others to honor Harrison for his posthumosly 2004 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. The group performed "My Guitar Gently Weeps". Prince did a 3 minute guitar leaving everyone breathless. Prince made that guitar do everything including fly!🎸This performance was legendary!!! Prince was also an inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that night as well.💜 #prince #princethursdays #georgeharrison #thebeatles #guitar #guitarsolo #mallofamerica #hardrockcafe #paisleypark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #bloomington #rockandrollhalloffame #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #purple #instagood #love4oneanother #love #gonetosoon
PRINCE THURSDAYS💜 I love squirrels!🐿 They are sooooo cuuute and full of energy! The squirrels run Minneapolis!😆😆 While leaving one of many stops on my pilgrimage to Paisley Park I passed by this squirrel mural and had to get a picture at Squirrel Haus Arts.

PRINCE THURSDAYS💜SWIPE👈🏽 When I travel I am always thinking about how I can get to my destination quick and not worry about parking so I may end up running and maybe even riding a bike. So word to the wise think before you agree to meet me on a destination trip. Lmao! My purple friends were lookin like this 🤤 when I suggested that we hop on bikes to quickly get to all the places we wanted to visit. Lol! They are still sore. In Minneapolis the bike sharing system is called @niceridemn Nice Ride. Minneapolis is so green and bike rider friendly. Soooooo many parks and trails to ride your bike. It was squirrels everywhere and they were riding beside my bike. I love squirrels! 🐿 They are so cute! Prince @prince rode his bicycle often. He was just too cool for school! If you are physically able, try to ride a bicycle. It will put a lil pep in your step. Bike riding is great exercise! Congratulations to my hometown Memphis, Tennessee for their new @explorebikeshare Explore Bike Share Program. Super Duper cute bikes! Awesome!

#PrinceThursdays 💜 SWIPE👈🏾 Do you know where I am? Let me give you a hint....Clearing my voice to sing😆...."Glam Slam thank you máme you really make my day!" Yep, you guessed right I am where Prince's Legendary Glam Slam Night Club was located in Downtown Minneapolis. The building now houses The Shout House Rock 'N Roll Dueling Pianos. 💜(Picture 2-4) Glam Slam Minneapolis in its hay day 💜(Picture 1,5,6) The building current day. The Minneapolis location was opened in late 1989. Prince would go on to open Glam Slam East-Miami, Glam Slam West- Los Angeles and Glam Slam-Yokohama, Japan. Glam Slam was a song first on Prince's Lovesexy Album released May 10,1988. Who was able to get their dance on at a GLAM SLAM?

#PrinceThursdays 💜 SWIPE LEFT👈The 3-story Schmitt Music Company Mural was the perfect place for @prince Prince then 19 years old in 1977 to shoot his first professional photo with photographer @robertwhitmanphoto Robert Whitman. I have always been intrigued by the second picture where you see the look on Prince's face like he is saying wait till you see what I can do! Lol! You definitely showed us! Prince had music running through his veins. I couldn't stand where Prince stood because it was so much happening on the lot but I think I did ok. Lol! #prince #princethursdays #princerogersnelson #ripprince #paisleypark #schmittmusicmural #purplehippie #music #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirl #talent #genius #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #minnesota #minneapolis #robertwhitman #photography #adventuresinminnesota #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love 💜
#PrinceThursdays 💜 Peace & L💜VE is what Prince promoted while on this earth and so it was befitting for him to have these emblems on his gate that surrounded his beloved Purple House. Yes, it was raining on this day. 🌧☂️ Prince had the Purple house torn down in the early 2000's. The last photo is of the Purple House while it was still standing.  The new owners of the property are Prince fans and will keep Prince's gate to surround their new home.💜 @prince.the.cross Thanks!💜😄 #prince #princethursdays #paisleypark #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #rainstorm #ripprince #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen  #purplehouse #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #peace #love
Swipe left👈 Yaaaaay! It's Prince Thursdays! #PrinceThursdays 💜 I had a blast on my tour at Paisley Park last October as well as the Paisley Park After Dark Dance Party. Yup, I danced the entire time! So glad I got to hang with you @prince.the.cross Tia. Thank you!🤗 I finally got all my pictures organized from my pilgrimage to Minnesota and will try to share on Prince Thursdays. I now totally understand why Prince loved his hometown so much. 💜 #prince #prn #princerogersnelson #princethursdays #paisleypark #1999 #paisleyparkafterdark #purplehippie #memoriesinminnesota #purplegirls #paisleyparkisinyourheart #tamborine #purplerain #sometimesitsnowsinapril #chanhannsen #minnesota #minneapolis #adventuresinchanhannsen  #ripprince #livinmylifelikeitsgolden #instagood #love4oneanother #love
