Who is dating eddie murphy
Sometimes I'd be, "Who dressed in what could look like show/stage clothes: a couture suit, matching handmade boots from a shoemaker in Paris, his hair done and full makeup. I went up the stairs and Prince was coming down the hall from his ofﬁce. Like, he really was living that version of what you think he was—that was him. You know, if you got people around that can carry phones and money for you, you can get away with that. If he needed to use a phone he'd use my phone or a driver's phone.
Washington: When you get to know him, he's really funny and has a wild sense of humor. I'm like, "Prince, you need to tan." Like, you need some vitamin D in your life. Freed: If he wanted to reach you, there'd be a text—he would write everything and it would be copy-and-pasted from his assistant or manager, ’cause he didn't have a cell phone. But when I met him, he genuinely was a fan of my photography and he wanted me to photograph his band. He'd find some 6-year-old kid that could play the violin, he'd have someone contact the parents: "Bring him to Paisley—I wanna talk to him." He was always sending me memes and funny videos. And then all of a sudden I see him walking by me with his pimp cane and his glasses on, and I'm thinking, "Wow, this is cool, he's gonna dance with us." And then, to my left, this guy walks in front of me and gently pushed me back. Prince would throw rocks at your window while you were sleeping. Electra: He called me and said, "I have a ﬂight booked for you tomorrow morning to Minneapolis." I packed up my little tiny suitcase, and I had maybe $20 and four or ﬁve outﬁts.He doesn't wait for any change because he doesn't have anywhere to put it. He wanted me to explain how the White House worked.He asked very detailed kind of foreign-policy questions.He'd go over there, and he didn't have any pockets. He just had cash he'd carry in his hand—like, a $100 bill.And whoever took his order, they'd have a good day, 'cause he'd buy his coffee drink and then just leave the whole hundred.And he's like, "I told you."Springs: I saw his room and all that.
His room was so small compared with everything I saw. It was kinda homey—he had this little queen-size bed, and a huge-ass TV, like a 52-inch ﬂatscreen.
Because I'm short, I'm ﬁve three…and he's shorter than me. He's somehow I remember taking him to the hardware store in my camping van. And we go to Ace Hardware—it's snowing and freezing—and I say, "Okay, Prince, you stay in the car." So I'm picking stuff up in the aisles, I look over, he just cruises by in a turtleneck sweater and his fuzzy boots, and people are looking like, "Oh my God, Prince is in the hardware store!
" He comes and ﬁnds me and he's got a handful of crap—like, "Can we buy this? " He says, "It's out there—it's just running." I said, "Prince, you can't leave the car running—somebody could just steal the car." He said, "This is Chanhassen—nobody's gonna steal the car." So we get out to the car and sure enough it's out there, just running, smoke coming out of the tailpipe.
And then he'd ask, "Why doesn't Obama just outlaw birthdays? He'd bring people in, we'd have listening sessions at Paisley.
" He said, "I was hoping that Obama, as soon as he was elected, would get up and announce there'd be no more Christmas presents and no more birthdays—we've got too much to do." I said, "Yeah, I don't know if that would go over too well."Tollefson: In the'90s he wouldn't walk anywhere, even within Paisley Park, without a bodyguard. Hayes: I took him to the bike store and I bought him a bike because he said he wanted a bicycle.
Misty Copeland _(principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre; appeared in a Prince video and live performances): _He never called from a number you'd recognize, so you'd never know it was going to be him.
