Prince’s Sister Reveals Shocking Info About The Late Icon

If there’s one thing everyone always knew about Prince, it’s that he loved and cherished the color purple. Good news: everything you’ve ever known is a lie.

In a recent interview with Evening Standard, Prince’s sister makes a shocking revelation, and explains that she doesn’t know why everyone always thought his favorite color was purple anyway. Sister Tyka Nelson said about the late star and his instruments, “The stand out piece for me is his orange Cloud guitar. It is strange because people always associate the colour purple with Prince, but his favourite colour was actually orange.”

Though Prince’s most beloved shade apparently isn’t even purple, The Pantone Color Institute and Prince’s estate created a custom shade of purple to honor the late singer recently. The color’s name is represented by Prince’s classic “Love Symbol #2″ symbol.”

For someone whose favorite color wasn’t purple, the man sure incorporated into literally everything. We still believe Prince’s jam was always purple over on this side, sorry Tyka.
