Prince watching himself perform on the Act II Tour, 1993


“Ever since the beginning of fucking time, nobody thinks I know what I’m doing – I know what I’m doing! ‘If you don’t do your homework, you’re gonna fail, d’you know that?’ What do you think? What do you fucking think? ‘If you don’t go to college, you’re not gonna get a good job, you’re not gonna be able, you’re not gonna get a great education, no one’s gonna hire you.’ No shit, I know this. I. Know. What goes on. And I’ve made my choices. And it’s frustrating to look at this world and say, ‘Hey look, you fucking assholes, I’m just being me, motherfucker, and I gotta tell you how I am.’”
