Muppets and Coffee

I finished a book the other day and since then I have had one thing on my mind.
The Purple One.
That's right Prince.

There was a line in the book that suggested that The Purple One lived in New York. Now I have to say that His Purpleness may have a residence in New York- Google didn't help me prove or disprove this. But most people from Minneapolis will tell you that a certain Purple musician is from Minneapolis or the exciting suburb of Chanhassen.
Since my college roommate used to live down the street from a purple house with a gate featuring a peace sign and a heart I feel a small connection to His Purpleness.
I think The Purple One lives in Vegas now.
But since I have Prince on the brain I decided to share one of my favorite Prince songs with you. (Keep in mind that this is one of like 15 favorites)
Yes, "Prince lives there" was one of the things in the pros list when I graduated from college and moved to this frozen, snow filled tundra.

I have to admit I was confused for the majority of this post, because I am pop culture ignorant and know nothing about Prince. Was good to know through the video, though! :)

I think knowing about Prince is probably a requirement to live in Minnesota. My college roommates made sure I knew all about Prince.

I think he may still live here. Or has a house at least. According to Wikipedia, "Prince Rogers Nelson was born June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to John L. Nelson and Mattie Shaw.[13] Prince's father was a pianist and songwriter and his mother was a jazz singer."

Also, do you remember "Hot Summer" which was playing on the current last year? Apparently, "Prince released a new single on Minneapolis radio station 89.3 The Current called "Hot Summer" on June 7, his 52nd birthday." Would he be releasing songs here if he didn't live here? Maybe he's at the State Fair in disguise.
