“Music is music, ultimately.”

“If it makes you feel good, cool.”

“Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people.”

“Too much freedom can lead to the soul’s decay.”

“What’s missing from pop music is danger.”

“I really believe in finding new ways to distribute my music.”

Words to live by from the late, great Prince. You heard the man: Live your life. And enjoy every minute of it.
