NOTHING COMPARES 2 U
The music of Prince will from now on live as refracted by others, at karaoke bars or in ersatz jukebox sets or in cover form.
In him, in the push and pull of his delicateness and beauty versus the fuel and loving fury of his music, I found a figure that felt true and right and precious.
I suddenly hoped that I hadn't gotten too drunk and fucked it all up in the name of protecting my vulnerabilities by shitting on strangers. After all, I was no better than them. I was there too. I did it because I wanted to.
