If you’re a fan of all things opulent, ass-less, heeled and talented, this has not been your week. As we all know, The Purple One, Prince, passed away on Thursday and the autopsy has been done already. But we won’t know the cause of death for some time, despite Dr Aretha’s take on the whole thing. And now, Prince has been laid to rest.
NBC reported yesterday that a private ceremony for family, friends and close collaborators was held to celebrate and remember Prince. His body was released to his family Friday afternoon and he was cremated. Of the private ceremony, Prince’s publicist had this to say:
A few hours ago, Prince was celebrated by a small group of his most beloved: family, friends and his musicians, in a private, beautiful ceremony to say a loving goodbye.
His publicist also went on to say that while that ceremony was closed and private, there will be a “musical celebration” at some point in the near future that would be open for all. As for where Prince’s ashes will be kept, his publicist said that information will be kept private. I hope they at least spread a little bit of his ashes on the earth, because this world definitely needs the spirit of Prince’s glamour in the air.
