Prince harry dating a rockstar
The 30-year-old resurrected Prince’s infamous funk pop vibe, while remaining true to her own performance style at the same time.
She knew she had to bring all of that emotion on stage with her.“It’s hard when you lose a friend and a musical hero. It wasn’t about Janelle Monáe that night, it was about Prince,” Monáe said of the experience, which included songs like “Kiss,” “Delirious,” “Pop Life,” and “I Would Die For You.” I lost a true friend and confidante, a mentor, a laughing buddy, an artistic father, my ping pong pal, my biking partner, my dance partner, and my musical hero. I'll miss our long music and life conversations.You understood us weirdos and encouraged us to remain unique. Madonna spearheaded that tribute to Prince, who was also a friend of hers. Thankfully, the BET Awards tribute was relatively drama-free.You were a protector of the vanguard and fought to protect our creativity always. She opened with “Nothing Compares 2 U” before being joined by Stevie Wonder for an emotional duet of “Purple Rain,” the audience singing along as they waved hands covered with glowing purple wristbands. Much like the inspiring spirit Janelle Monáe reflected that Prince was, she’ll continue to make her mark on the world and demonstrate the need for awareness and unity in the black community.
Janelle Monáe honored Prince during this year’s BET Awards last Sunday (June 26), and in a recent interview, she opened up about what it meant to her and what went into preparing for the surely pressure-filled performance.It was announced in early June, as the reported, that the BET Awards would honor the legendary singer/songwriter with a tribute by Monáe, Jennifer Hudson, D’Angelo, Sheila E., and The Roots.
