Hoy nos tocó escribir y lamentar la muerte de uno de los iconos más influyentes de la cultura pop de las últimas décadas. Al igual que David Bowie, Prince es un artista muy especial ya que su estatura se mide por el número de artistas que lo citan como influencia. Aunque Prince era notorio por el control que ejercía sobre su obra (el hacía TODO en sus discos: escribir, componer, cantar, arreglar, producir, y claro, tocaba todos los instrumento), eso no quiere decir que carecía de admiradores entre sus pares. Al contrario, la comunidad artística tiene una deuda enorme con Prince, no sólo por sus aportaciones a la música popular, sino además por su estricta postura en defensa de los derechos de autor, especialmente en la era digital. En otras palabras, si no ves por aquí ningún video de YouTube o algún playlist de Spotify, eso se lo debemos al hombre de púrpura.

Aquí te compartimos las reacciones por redes sociales que despertó en la comunidad artística la muerte de Prince.

i’m not even gonna say rest in peace because it’s bigger than death. i never met the man (i was too nervous the one time i saw him) and i never saw him play live, regrettably. i only know the legends I’ve heard from folks and what i’ve heard and seen from his deep catalog of propellant, fearless, virtuosic work. my assessment is that he learned early on how little value to assign to someone else’s opinion of you.. an infectious sentiment that seemed soaked into his clothes, his hair, his walk, his guitar and his primal scream. he wrote my favorite song of all time, ‘when you were mine’. it’s a simple song with a simple melody that makes you wish you thought of it first, even though you never would have – a flirtatious brand of genius that feels approachable. he was a straight black man who played his first televised set in bikini bottoms and knee high heeled boots, epic. he made me feel more comfortable with how i identify sexually simply by his display of freedom from and irreverence for obviously archaic ideas like gender conformity etc. he moved me to be more daring and intuitive with my own work by his demonstration – his denial of the prevailing model…his fight for his intellectual property – ‘slave’ written across the forehead, name changed to a symbol… an all out rebellion against exploitation. A vanguard and genius by every metric I know of who affected many in a way that will outrun oblivion for a long while. I’m proud to be a Prince fan(stan) for life.
