It’s not hard to imagine Prince getting bullied as a child. The six inch heeled boots, the ass-less pants and the bi-curious vibe didn’t happen overnight. But, the interesting fact is we have those bullies to thank for some of the best music of our generation. Flip the switch for more
Pop superstar PRINCE had credited school bullies with sparking his interest in music – because the singer began to learn piano as a means of escape.
The Purple Rain hitmaker admits that when he was a youngster, his tormentors left him isolated from other kids. And to fill his time, he began teaching himself how to play his father’s instruments.
He says, “The first thing I did is I went into myself and I taught myself music. My father left his piano at the house when he left and I wasn’t allowed to play it when he was there because I wasn’t as good as him so when he left I was determined to get as good as him.
We’re glad he turned to music to escape. Could you imagine Prince working a 9-5? Discussing MAC’s new fall line of eyeliners at the water cooler…SMH.
