Dive Right Into You by nerdy_cait05

Lance and Keith are trapped in a submarine hundreds of miles below the surface; shenanigans ensue :3

between stars by NotRover

After years of fighting on opposite sides of the war, Lance and Keith meet once again on the battlefield.

Stupid Boys by PaladinAzul

Lance and Matt bond on puns, pickup lines, and flirtations.

Keith does not approve.

Dorks by GriffinRose ***so cute

Lance is the only one listening to the current presentation, and oh boy is it something to listen to. The kid has been rambling on about aliens for ten minutes and he is trying so hard not to laugh. So hard. Turns out the kid didn’t even think Lance was paying attention, so when he finds out Lance was he books it. Like, as fast it takes Lance to turn his head, that kid was gone.

Keith wants to die. The Hot Guy in his bio class was actually listening to him talk about aliens. That’s it. He’s done. Kill him now.

Poor Shiro is just trying to keep his little brother sane.

Alex Standall X Reader

Request:  Can you do an Alex Standall imagine where his girlfriend always calls him black parade Gerard as a cute little joke because their first kiss was to an MCR song?

—————————————————————————————————-

You were waiting outside the school doors for your boyfriend Alex so that you could walk home together. You soon noticed him walking out the doors so you walked up to him. “Hey my little black parade Gerard!” You almost shouted as you grabbed him into a hug.

“Why do you always call me that?” He asked you with a mixture of annoyance and confusion. “Do you seriously not remember?” You questioned him. “I don’t remember, sorry, could you remind me?” He said with a small smile on his face. “Ugh, fine.” You groaned as you started telling him.  

                                               ~Flashback~

You were hanging out with your best friend Alex, who you had a huge crush on. You guys were currently watching Edward Scissorhands when suddenly Alex said something. “Hey, lets listen to some music!” He said excitedly. “Um, okay go ahead.” You giggled. 

You soon heard the beginning to your favorite song, ‘The Sharpest Lives’ by My Chemical Romance. “Oh my god Alex I love this song” You practically shouted. “I know that’s why I picked it” He chuckled as you excitedly danced around.

“Oh come on Alex, I’m not gonna dance by myself!” You laughed as you pulled him towards you, causing you to fall onto the couch, with Alex on top of you. You soon realized that you were leaning in towards each other. Soon your lips were together, after awhile you pulled apart. 

“Umm, so I don’t know if you noticed but I like you, like really like you.” He said to you nervously. “Well that’s good.” You giggled. “What?” He asked confused. You giggled even more at his reaction. “I like you too, you idiot!” You laughed as you kissed him again.

                                       ~End Of Flashback~

“Oh yeaaahhh.” He said, remembering the rest after you finished telling him. “Yeah, then a week later you took me on a date and asked me to be your girlfriend” You replied, smiling. “And I don’t regret it, and I never will” He told you, before he kissed you.

Jamming

I was tagged by @popliar to post some sweet jams and it only took me like 2 weeks to condense my current jams into something manageable and not discordant (plus that gave me a chance to listen to the new Kendrick). This isn’t a mix because I’d have to cut an EXID song and my heart can’t handle that, but you could play this like a mix if you wanted.

  1. Miss You - Monsta X: I think in the past, this might have ended up as more of a ballad, but instead it has a really nice beat. Though I also like the bridge where the beat drops out and it’s just the piano and the vocals and rap keep the rhythm instead. Good jon, Jooheon.
  2. How Why - EXID: I think the absence of Solji from this ep forced EXID to let the instrumentation play the role of her power vocals and the result is a really chill and laid back collection of songs. There were definitely songs like this on Street (their previous full-length) but it’s definitely been refined. The inclusion of the sounds of the ocean at the beginning and end is chef’s kiss perfect.
  3. Really Really - Winner: So different from Winner’s last release, but they’ve also lost a member so I guess I’m not too surprised. It’s much more in line with what’s popular in music right now with that tropical house sound. It really suits their vocals and rappers though, so the song works. Shoutout to all those LA dancers in the video. But can YG’s obsession with low riders be over now?
  4. The Sun, The Moon In Love - Kisum ft. Pizza: I like this song better than the single Kisum put out with this newest EP. It’s got a great dreamy sound that contrasts well with her delivery, and I don’t know anything else Pizza has done, but he keeps the dreamy mood for the chorus.
  5. 1 Night - Mura Masa ft. Charli XCX: There are actual steel drums in this song, so I’m here for it. I haven’t listened to a ton of Charli’s stuff on her own, but I like her vocals here. Can you tell this list had a certain tone to it?
  6. Velvet - EXID (LE solo): In the grand tradition of Songs LE’s Written about Sex (see: Cream), Velvet is sensual and mature and suits LE’s voice. And just like Cream, you don’t have to know the Korean lyrics to understand what this song is about.
  7. Loyalty. - Kendrick Lamar (ft. Rihanna): A full version is hard to find for free, but god, this beat is everything. I want to grind up on someone when this song comes on? That’s helped by Rihanna being all over the track, but lord the beat.
  8. Bad Love - Seohyun: Some smokey horns and Soehyun’s voice make for another catchy song that I like more than her title track (though I like Don’t Say No plenty). The bridge steps up the instrumentation rather than stripping it down and that makes it great for pumping your fist while singing along. 
  9. Gajah (Elephant) - Gaeko ft. RM: I linked a lyrics video rather than the music video, since there’s some animated body-horror stuff in there. A song about the pressures of life and how you have to keep moving (like an elephant?). Love the trippy guitar sounds in particular. Gaeko’s a legend and his experience shows and Rapmon’s verse holds up well next to him. The instrumentals at the end would be great if they led to something else on a record, but there’s no other release from Gaeko right now, so they seem pointless? RELEASE AN ALBUM GAEKO.
  10. Let Me Out - Gorillaz ft Mavis Staples & Pusha T: New Gorillaz is always a time for joy, but this is my favorite of what they’ve previewed so far. Trust Damon to use Mavis Staples’ voice to its full effect.
  11. Change - RM x Wale: Of course a collab between Rap Monster and Wale would be both about real shit and still uplifting? The piano and pizzicato strings of first two verses, and then the change for the third verse that gets a little darker, a little more serious. Catchy as hell.
  12. Paradise - GOT7: Jinyoung wrote a song that hits all of my tropical house weaknesses and makes me want to shake my butt every time I listen to it. Mark low-talking in my ear throughout the entire song is just unfair.
  13. Memory - Brave Girls: @renquise has it right that this song feels like a sing-a-long in the car, upbeat and joyful. It’s great to hear Hyeran on the track, even if she couldn’t promote Rollin’.
  14. Outro: Wings - BTS: I loved this song before I saw BTS live, but the live version is perfectly placed in their show as the first song of the encore, great for jumping out of your seat as you hit that end-of-concert exhaustion/euphoria state, so now I have even more goodwill towards it. A classic 90s house sound that’s hiding a modern EDM-trap breakdown that lets J-Hope shine twice in one song. His flow serves both rhythms really well. I don’t call him Trap King Hobi for nothing.

This does contain a small bit of spoilers from ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’. Read at your own risk. Thank you and enjoy!


There was nothing more than an atrocious silence spilling in the air as Newt sat down his body between yourself and Queenie, and on the other side sat Tina. Jacob was across from you, pattering his hand against the table to the music. Oh right, jazzfest music filling his ears, a sound that Newt was actually actively trying to ignore in case of you saying something. There was currently nothing noteworthy of listening to, even the music.  Realistically, he stayed physically stiff, even to look at as his eyes found themselves a comfy spot to stare at on the table. He wasn’t quite sure what to even murmur, let alone what to look at now that you were so… What was the right word? Newt thought to himself, picking up the shot that was previously sat in front of him by Queenie herself. Her standpoint on giving him it, is perhaps even if the chance is slight, Newt would open up to you a bit more than he had already.

Supposedly, he could use the word ‘bare’ or even ‘naked’, as the flapper style dress on your body was doing little to cover. It dipped in the front, but not more than it did in the back. He supposed if you shifted the right way, he could catch the light bouncing off your skin there. Being the way he was, Newt was always one to take in the details of other people, surroundings and objects. In the long run, it had helped him with many things, one of which being his ability to gain the trust of his magical creatures. And so, it was no surprise that he noted your dress being a metallic gold color, and it seemed to go greatly with your skin-tone despite the lighting of the club being less than adequate. 

There was a sort of mesh material hugging the top half of the dress, and drawn out to sleeves that you’d occasionally play with. Accompanied by an equally metallic headband rested with feathers on the left side, you looked nothing less of breathless. Ultimately, that’s how Newt had felt when he first saw you in all your wonder. Breathless.

Moving your legs to cross under the table, your foot knocked against his ever so gently, not enough for you to muster an apology, but enough for him to notice and to over-analyze. The tassels on the bottom of your dress spilled away from your knee, revealing the silky looking fabric that lined under your dress as you sat forward and leaned against the table to say something to Tina.

The stiffening had gotten worse as he caught eyes with Queenie from across the seat. She raised her eyebrows in an all knowing way, her bobbed and curled strawberry blond hair framing her face perfectly. Newt smiled slightly, muttering something to himself before collapsing his hands into balls. That didn’t last long as he began tapping them against his knees. He didn’t need to say anything, in all retrospects. From the look that she had just given him, she knew what he was thinking.

There were many a thing to worry about in a situation like this. Like, what was Gnarlak like? Could he be trusted? Surely, he must be as Tina is the one who suggested you’d come here. But, he found himself debating in his mind. A back and forth on whether or not he should say something to you, maybe, about how nice you looked. Would that be appropriate? Was that too flirty? Is it too straightforward? Goodness, Newt thought to himself and swallowed, Just, don’t say anything.

“(Name),” Why’d you just say that? What are you doing? Smiling at Tina for one last time, you turned and looked at Newt. Automatically, without second thought, he averted his eyes. Now that he had your attention, what was he to say?! “You-you…” He cleared his throat and shuffled in his seat. This is your last chance, please don’t say something that’s going to weird her out! “You look really beau… really nice…”

“Oh.” You sounded, tilting your head and staring at him. The heat instantly hit your cheeks, and though you blamed it on the little bit of a drink you had a few minutes ago, you doubted that it was actually that. “Thank you, Newt. You look nice too. I like your bow-tie.”

He forced a smile, mentally cursing at himself for actually saying something. Had he no reserve? It was possible that his nerves were getting the best of him, and it wouldn’t be the first time that it has happened like that.

“He meant to say you look beautiful, sweetie.” Queenie’s New York accent spoke through the air as she turned her attention to the two of you. She smiled, laughing more to herself at the complete and utter awkwardness that the two of you were currently in. With her eyes scanning the two of you, it looked like you had been caught with a hand in the cookie jar. Only, it was Newt with his hand in the cookie jar labeled ‘Bad flirting’. “Which, you really are. Ain’t she, Mr. Scamander?” Smiling cheekily, she sat back. The cocky grin turned into one of satisfaction as you turned a small shade of red.

Another vial of silence scattered between the two of you as you began moving awkwardly in your seat. Newt was stuck, quite frankly, between a rock and a hard place. Clearing this throat, and moving a hand to rest above his mouth, he nodded and whispered quietly, “Q-quite beautiful.”

“Thank you.” You bowed your head in appreciation and began fiddling with the ends of your mesh sleeves. “I don’t actually like your bow-tie,” You stared at your fingers as he danced his feet against the ground, “I actually love it. I think it really… suits you…?” You were unsure of why your compliment had came out as a question, but regardless, Newt took to it and smiled at you in return, giving you a long stare as you returned the kindness.

“She’s thought that since the moment she met you.” Queenie mused from her spot.

“Queenie!” You squeaked.

The expression on her face was nothing short of mischievous, “Want to know what else she thought?”

Don’t Fear the Reaper Chapter 23: Red

Sam Winchester x Reader

1450 Words

Chapter Summary: Tagging along with Team Free Will as they head to Detroit, you try once again to plead with Sam.

Story Summary: You are a reaper, actually one of Death’s favorites.  You’ve been following the story of the Winchesters for a while, staying out of sight, never letting them see you. You slowly fall in love with Sam, even though he doesn’t know you exist. But that all changes one day. Set in Season 5

Catch Up Here: Masterpost

The road trip was quiet, and awkward, the impending fight weighing heavy on everyone’s minds. Bobby and Cas had chosen to ride in his van, leaving just you, Sam and Dean alone in the Impala. You had made the move to ride with Bobby, wanting to give the brothers time alone, but Sam had grabbed your hand, pleading with his eyes for you to stay with him. You couldn’t say no to him, so you were currently in the back seat of the car, leaning forward so you could thread your fingers through his. You couldn’t stop touching him, knowing you had a time limit before he was gone for good, and you would no longer be able to feel his callused hands holding yours. Or to be able to run your fingers through his hair. You only had hours left to mesmerize every thing about him, every line, every scare, every speck of gold in his eyes.

Joker x Reader ft. Traumatized Pets

Warnings: Upset Joker, I don’t know if this will count as animal cruelty XD

“I don’t know, Mr. J. Maybe we could get a turtle?” Something you can’t harm. But J wasn’t listening. He was currently pacing in their living room, muttering something about taking down batsy and how a dog would be a good distraction.

“But J! A turtle has a hard shell! That could easily take down b-man!” And it could protect itself from you. J rolled his eyes.

“I thought you always wanted a dog! We’re getting a dog.” He said in a demanding tone.  Yeah, I want a dog that won’t be dead as soon as we bring it home.

The next day Y/N bought a turtle and J bought a dog. The dog had short white fur, and wasn’t very smart. With a droopy long tongue, it was cute as hell. The turtle was medium sized, with terrible reflexes (even for a turtle). She regrets ever getting any pets when she walk into her room. The first thing she sees is her turtle speed crawling away from J. It’s shell is now painted white with black HA HA HA’s written across it.  She reached down to pick up the petrified turtle.

“Don’t touch it! It’s still drying.” J growled from where he was now holding the traumatized looking dog. He painted the same pattern on the dogs back the turtle had.

“Jesus J! This is why I knew this was a bad idea!  You suck at taking care of animals!” J looked up and narrowed his eyes. Oh shit.

“What was that, sweets?” Y/N gulped.

“You’re scaring them!” She went and took the trembling dog from J. She knew he probably didn’t hurt them but he didn’t know how to act around animals. Taking the dog and turtle, she put them in their room. When she came back he still had the brush in hand, glaring at the floor.

“They like you more than me.”

“No! You just scare them is all….” Y/N goes and wraps her arm around him.

“You just got to be gentle, honey. You gotta give them love.” If you even know what that is. She decided that that was the nicest way to put it. He didn’t reply, so she went and got the animals. She put the dog in his lap and grabbed his arms, placing them gently around the dog.

“Now j-just pet it.” He stroked the dog from head to tail, pulling the dog’s scalp back and revealing bulging eyes. Wincing, Y/N grabbed his hand and did it slow and gentle. J was still glaring at the dog.

“Honey, sweetie, if you don’t show the dog love it won’t show it back” She placed a kiss on his cheek, trying to get him to smile.  He just sighed and left the room. Y/N made a mental note to find the animals a good home.

…..

Just getting out of the shower, Y/N was brushing her hair when she went into J’s room. She saw him in the same spot he was before, holding her turtle upside down. The turtle did the smart thing and decided to stay in its shell. J was glaring at the shell with a black-marker smile on  his face. Y/N knew whenever he had that smile on, he was upset. He started shaking the turtle and then peering inside, as if to make sure it was still in there.

“J, sweetheart, what are you doing?” He glanced up with an innocent look on his face.

“It won’t play with me.” He raised the turtle above his head.

“Maybe if I-” Y/N rushed over and grabbed his hand.

“J, no. Maybe we should find these pets another home.” He glanced up at her, then back at the turtle. To her surprise he said,

“You’re right. I’ve been thinking about an even better pet” He started to smile, causing Y/N’s heart to drop in her chest.

“What kind of pet?”

“A fish!” She let out a breath of relief. Not too bad.…..

Y/N just got home after dropping the pets off at their new home. She was relieved that no harm would come to them now. Her smile soon faded when she heard J’s maniacal laugh upstairs. Each step she took up the stairs made her more nervous. HailMaryfullofgraceOurLordiswiththeeBlessedartthouamongwomen,andblessedisthefruitofthywomb- Y/N walked in his room, gasping when she saw J standing beside a huge fish tank. There were two separate tanks, one with piranhas and one with sharks. J turned to her with a big smile on his face, his wet clothes plastered to his skin. He looked as if he’s been in the tank. Walking up to her, he placed a kiss on her cheek and wrapped an arm around her. He then started reciting his plans he has no doubt been working on all night. Y/N listened with a fake smile silently thinking that after these ‘pets’ die there won’t be anymore.

Prince Talks: The Silence Is Broken

By Neal Karlen


The Interview

Why have you decided that now is the time to talk?
There have been a lot of things said about me, and a lot of them are wrong. There have been a lot of contradictions. I don’t mind criticism, I just don’t like lies. I feel I’ve been very honest in my work and my life, and it’s hard to tolerate people telling so many barefaced lies.

Do you read most of what’s written about you?
A little, not much. Sometimes someone will pass along a funny one. I just wrote a song called “Hello,” which is going to be on the flip side of “Pop Life.” It says at the end, “Life is cruel enough without cruel words.” I get a lot of cruel words. A lot of people do.

I saw critics be so critical of Stevie Wonder when he made Journey through the Secret Life of Plants. Stevie has done so many great songs, and for people to say, “You missed, don’t do that, go back” – well, I would never say, “Stevie Wonder, you missed.” [Prince puts the Wonder album on the turntable, plays a cut, then puts on Miles Davis’ new album.] Or Miles. Critics are going to say, “Ah, Miles done went off.” Why say that? Why even tell Miles he went off? You know, if you don’t like it, don’t talk about it. Go buy another record!
Not long ago I talked to George Clinton, a man who knows and has done so much for funk. George told me how much he liked Around the World in a Day. You know how much more his words mean than those from some mamma-jamma wearing glasses and an alligator shirt behind a typewriter?

Do you hate rock critics? Do you think they’re afraid of you?
[Laughs] No, it’s no big deal. Hey, I’m afraid of them! One time early in my career, I got into a fight with a New York writer, this little skinny cat, a real sidewinder. He said, “I’ll tell you a secret, Prince. Writers write for other writers, and a lot of time it’s more fun to be nasty.” I just looked at him. But when I really thought about it and put myself in his shoes, I realized that’s what he had to do. I could see his point. They can do whatever they want. And me, too. I can paint whatever picture I want with my albums. And I try to instill that in every act I’ve ever worked with.

What picture were you painting with Around the World in a Day?
[Laughs] I’ve heard some people say I’m not talking about anything on this record. And what a lot of other people get wrong about the record is that I’m not trying to be this great visionary wizard. Paisley Park is in everybody’s heart. It’s not just something that I have the keys to. I was trying to say something about looking inside oneself to find perfection. Perfection is in everyone. Nobody’s perfect, but they can be. We may never reach that, but it’s better to strive than not.

Sounds religious.
As far as that goes, let me tell you a story about Wendy. We had to fly somewhere at the beginning of the tour, and Wendy is deathly afraid of flying. She got on the plane and really freaked. I was scared for her. I tried to calm her down with jokes, but it didn’t work. I thought about it and said, “Do you believe in God?” She said yes. I said, “Do you trust him?” and she said she did. Then I asked, “So why are you afraid to fly?” She started laughing and said, “Okay, okay, okay.” Flying still bothers her a bit, but she knows where it is and doesn’t get freaked.

It’s just so nice to know there is someone and someplace else. And if we’re wrong, and I’m wrong, and there is nothing, then big deal! But the whole life I just spent, I at least had some reason to spend it.

When you talk about God, which God are you talking about? The Christian God? Jewish? Buddhist? Is there any God in particular you have in mind?
Yes, very much so. A while back, I had an experience that changed me and made me think differently about how and what I wrote and how I acted toward people. I’m going to make a film about it – not the next one, but the one after that. I’ve wanted to make it for three years now. Don’t get me wrong – I’m still as wild as I was. I’m just funneling it in a different direction. And now I analyze things so much that sometimes I can’t shut my brain off and it hurts. That’s what that movie will be about.

What was the experience that changed you?
I don’t really want to get into it specifically. During the Dirty Mind period, I would go into fits of depression and get physically ill. I would have to call people to help me get out of it. I don’t do that anymore.

What were you depressed about?
A lot had to do with the band’s situation, the fact that I couldn’t make people in the band understand how great we could all be together if we all played our part. A lot also had to do with being in love with someone and not getting any love back. And there was the fact that I didn’t talk much with my father and sister. Anyway, a lot of things happened in this two-day period, but I don’t want to get into it right now.

How’d you get over it?
That’s what the movie’s going to be about. Paisley Park is the only way I can say I got over it now. Paisley Park is the place one should find in oneself, where one can go when one is alone.

You say you’ve now found the place where you can go to be alone. Is it your house? Within the family you’ve built around you? With God?
It’s a combination of things. I think when one discovers himself, he discovers God. Or maybe it’s the other way around. I’m not sure… . It’s hard to put into words. It’s a feeling – someone knows when they get it. That’s all I can really say.

Do you believe in heaven?
I think there is an afterworld. For some reason, I think it’s going to look just like here, but that’s part … I don’t really like talking about this stuff. It’s so personal.

Does it bother you when people say you’re going back in time with Around the World in a Day?
No. What they say is that the Beatles are the influence. The influence wasn’t the Beatles. They were great for what they did, but I don’t know how that would hang today. The cover art came about because I thought people were tired of looking at me. Who wants another picture of him? I would only want so many pictures of my woman, then I would want the real thing. What would be a little more happening than just another picture [laughs] would be if there was some way I could materialize in people’s cribs when they play the record.

How do you feel about people calling the record “psychedelic”?
I don’t mind that, because that was the only period in recent history that delivered songs and colors. Led Zeppelin, for example, would make you feel differently on each song.

Does your fame affect your work?
A lot of people think it does, but it doesn’t at all. I think the smartest thing I did was record Around the World in a Day right after I finished Purple Rain. I didn’t wait to see what would happen with Purple Rain. That’s why the two albums sound completely different. People think, “Oh, the new album isn’t half as powerful as Purple Rain or 1999.” You know how easy it would have been to open Around the World in a Day with the guitar solo that’s on the end of “Let’s Go Crazy”? You know how easy it would have been to just put it in a different key? That would have shut everybody up who said the album wasn’t half as powerful. I don’t want to make an album like the earlier ones. Wouldn’t it be cool to be able to put your albums back to back and not get bored, you dig? I don’t know how many people can play all their albums back to back with each one going to different cities.

What do you think about the comparisons between you and Jimi Hendrix?
It’s only because he’s black. That’s really the only thing we have in common. He plays different guitar than I do. If they really listened to my stuff, they’d hear more of a Santana influence than Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix played more blues; Santana played prettier. You can’t compare people, you really can’t, unless someone is blatantly trying to rip somebody off. And you can’t really tell that unless you play the songs.
You’ve got to understand that there’s only so much you can do on an electric guitar. I don’t know what these people are thinking – they’re usually non-guitar-playing mamma-jammas saying this kind of stuff. There are only so many sounds a guitar can make. Lord knows I’ve tried to make a guitar sound like something new to myself.

Are there any current groups you listen to a lot or learn from? 

Naah. The last album I loved all the way through was [Joni Mitchell’s] The Hissing of Summer Lawns. I respect people’s success, but I don’t like a lot of popular music. I never did. I like more of the things I heard when I was little. Today, people don’t write songs; they’re a lot of sounds, a lot of repetition. That happened when producers took over, and that’s why there’s no more [live] acts. There’s no box office anymore. The producers took over, and now nobody wants to see these bands.

People seem to think you live in an armed monastery that you’ve built in honor of yourself.

First off, I don’t live in a prison with armed guards around me. The reason I have a guy outside is that after the movie, all kinds of people started coming over and hanging out. That wasn’t so bad, but the neighbors got upset that people were driving by blasting their boxes or standing outside and singing. I happen to dig that. That’s one reason I’m going to move to more land. There, if people want to come by, it will be fine. Sometimes it gets lonely here. To be perfectly honest, I wish more of my friends would come by.

Friends?
Musicians, people I know. A lot of the time they think I don’t want to be bothered. When I told Susannah [Melvoin] that you were coming over, she said, “Is there something I can do? Do you want me to come by to make it seem like you have friends coming by?” I said no, that would be lying. And she just put her head down, because she knew she doesn’t come by to see me as much as she wants to, or as much as she thinks I want her to. It was interesting. See, you did something good, and you didn’t even know it!

Are you afraid to ask your friends to come by?
I’m kind of afraid. That’s because sometimes everybody in the band comes over, and we have very long talks. They’re very few and far between, and I do a lot of the talking. Whenever we’re done, one of them will come up to me and say, “Take care of yourself. You know I really love you.” I think they love me so much, and I love them so much, that if they came over all the time I wouldn’t be able to be to them what I am, and they wouldn’t be able to do for me what they do. I think we all need our individual spaces, and when we come together with what we’ve concocted in our heads, it’s cool.

Does it bother you that strangers make pilgrimages to your house?
No, not at all. But there’s a time and a place for everything. A lot of people have the idea that I’m a wild sexual person. It can be two o'clock in the afternoon, and someone will make a really strange request from the call box outside. One girl just kept pressing the buzzer. She kept pressing it, and then she started crying. I had no idea why. I thought she might have fallen down. I started talking to her, and she just kept saying, “I can’t believe it’s you.” I said, “Big deal. I’m no special person. I’m no different than anyone.” She said, “Will you come out?” I said, “Nope, I don’t have much on.” And she said, “That’s okay.”

I’ve lectured quite a few people out there. I’ll say, “Think about what you’re saying. How would you react if you were me?” I ask that question a lot: “How would you react if you were me?” They say, “Okay, okay.”

It’s not just people outside your door who think you’re a wild sexual person.
To some degree I am, but not twenty-four hours a day. Nobody can be what they are twenty-four hours a day, no matter what that is. You have to eat, you have to sleep, you have to think, and you have to work. I work a lot, and there’s not too much time for anything else when I’m doing that.

Does it make you angry when people dig into your background, when they want to know about your sexuality and things like that?
Everyone thinks I have a really mean temper and that I don’t like people to do this or do that. I have a sense of humor. I thought that the Saturday Night Live skit with Billy Crystal as me was the funniest thing I ever saw. His imitation of me was hysterical! He was singing, “I am the world, I am the children!” Then Bruce Springsteen came to the mike, and the boys would push him away. It was hilarious. We put it on when we want to laugh. It was great. Of course, that’s not what it is.
And I thought the Prince Spaghetti commercial was the cutest thing in the world. My lawyers and management are the ones who felt it should be stopped. I didn’t even see the commercial until after someone had tried to have it stopped. A lot of things get done without my knowledge because I’m in Minneapolis and they’re where they are.
It’s a good and a bad thing that I live here. It’s bad in the sense that I can’t be a primo “rock star” and do everything absolutely right. I can’t go to the parties and benefits, be at all the awards shows, get this and get that. But I like it here. It’s really mellow.

How do you feel when you go to New York or L.A. and see the life you could be leading?
L.A. is a good place to work. And I liked New York more when I wasn’t known, when I wasn’t bothered when I went out. You’d be surprised. There are guys who will literally chase you through a discotheque! I don’t mind my picture being taken if it’s done in a proper fashion. It’s very easy to say, “Prince, may I take your picture?” I don’t know why people can’t be more humane about a lot of things they do. Now when I’m visiting, I like to sneak around and try stuff. I like to sneak to people’s gigs and see if I can get away without getting my picture taken. That’s fun. That’s like cops and robbers.

You’ve taken a lot of heat for your bodyguards, especially the incident in Los Angeles in which your bodyguard Chick Huntsberry reportedly beat up a photographer.
A lot of times I’ve been accused of sicking bodyguards on people. You know what happened in L.A.? My man the photographer tried to get in the car! I don’t have any problems with someone Iknow trying to get in my car with me and my woman in it. But someone like that? Just to get a picture?

Why isn’t Chick working for you anymore?
Chick has more pride than anyone I know. I think that after the L.A. incident, he feared for his job. So if I said something, he’d say, “What are you jumping on me for? What’s wrong? Why all of a sudden are you changing?” And I’d say, “I’m not changing.” Finally, he just said, “I’m tired. I’ve had enough.” I said fine, and he went home. I waited a few weeks and called him. I told him that his job was still here and that I was alone. So he said he’d see me when I was in New York. He didn’t show up. I miss him.

Is it true that Chick is still on the payroll?
Yes.

What about the exposé he wrote about you in the National Enquirer?
I never believe anything in the Enquirer. I remember reading stories when I was ten years old, saying, “I was fucked by a flying saucer, and here’s my baby to prove it.” I think they just took everything he said and blew it up. It makes for a better story. They’re just doing their thing. Right on for them. The only thing that bothers me is when my fans think I live in a prison. This is not a prison.

You came in for double heat over the L.A. incident because it happened the night of the “We Are the World” recording. In retrospect, do you wish you had shown up?
No. I think I did my part in giving my song [to the album]. I hope I did my part. I think I did the best thing I could do.

You’ve done food-drive concerts for poor people in various cities, given free concerts for handicapped kids and donated lots of money to the Marva Collins inner-city school in Chicago. Didn’t you want to stand up after you were attacked for “We Are the World” and say, “Hey, I do my part.”
Nah. I was never rich, so I have very little regard for money now. I only respect it inasmuch as it can feed somebody. I give a lot of things away, a lot of presents and money. Money is best spent on someone who needs it. That’s all I’m going to say. I don’t like to make a big deal about the things I do that way.

People think that you’re a dictator in the studio, that you want to control everything. In L.A., however, I saw Wendy and Lisa mixing singles while you were in Paris. How do you feel about your reputation?
My first album I did entirely alone. On the second I used André [Cymone], my bass player, on “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?” He sang a small harmony part that you really couldn’t hear. There was a typo on the record, and André didn’t get any credit. That’s how that whole thing started. I tried to explain that to him, but when you’re on the way up, there’s no explaining too much of anything. People will think what they want to.

The reason I didn’t use musicians a lot of the time had to do with the hours that I worked. I swear to God it’s not out of boldness when I say this, but there’s not a person around who can stay awake as long as I can. Music is what keeps me awake. There will be times when I’ve been working in the studio for twenty hours and I’ll be falling asleep in the chair, but I’ll still be able to tell the engineer what cut I want to make. I use engineers in shifts a lot of the time because when I start something. I like to go all the way through. There are very few musicians who will stay awake that long.

Do you feel others recognize how hard you work?
Well, no. A lot of my peers make remarks about us doing silly things onstage and on records. Morris [Day, former lead singer of the Time] was criticized a lot for that.

What kind of silliness, exactly?
Everything – the music, the dances, the lyrics. What they fail to realize is that is exactly what we want to do. It’s not silliness, it’s sickness. Sickness is just slang for doing things somebody else wouldn’t do. If we are down on the floor doing a step, that’s something somebody else wouldn’t do. That’s what I’m looking for all the time. We don’t look for whether something’s cool or not, that’s not what time it is. It’s not just wanting to be out. It’s just if I do something that I think belongs to someone else or sounds like someone else, I do something else.

Why did Morris say such negative things about you after he left the band?
People who leave usually do so out of a need to express something they can’t do here. It’s really that simple. Morris, for example, always wanted to be a solo act, period. But when you’re broke and selling shoes someplace, you don’t think about asking such a thing. Now, I think Morris is trying to create his own identity. One of the ways of doing that is trying to pretend that you don’t have a past.

Jesse [Johnson, former guitarist for the Time] is the only one who went away who told what happened, what really went down with the band. He said there was friction, because he was in a situation that didn’t quite suit him. Jesse wanted to be in front all the time. And I just don’t think God puts everybody in that particular bag. And sometimes I was blunt enough to say that to people: “I don’t think you should be the front man. I think Morris should.”

Wendy, for example, says, “I don’t want that. I want to be right where I am. I can be strongest to this band right where I am.” I personally love this band more than any other group I’ve ever played with for that reason. Everybody knows what they have to do. I know there’s something I have to do.

What sound do you get from different members of the Revolution?
Bobby Z was the first one to join. He’s my best friend. Though he’s not such a spectacular drummer, he watches me like no other drummer would. Sometimes, a real great drummer, like Morris, will be more concerned with the lick he is doing as opposed to how I am going to break it down.

Mark Brown’s just the best bass player I know, period. I wouldn’t have anybody else. If he didn’t play with me, I’d eliminate bass from my music. Same goes for Matt [Fink, the keyboard player]. He’s more or less a technician. He can read and write like a whiz, and is one of the fastest in the world. And Wendy makes me seem all right in the eyes of people watching.

How so?
She keeps a smile on her face. When I sneer, she smiles. It’s not premeditated, she just does it. It’s a good contrast. Lisa is like my sister. She’ll play what the average person won’t. She’ll press two notes with one finger so the chord is a lot larger, things like that. She’s more abstract. She’s into Joni Mitchell, too.

What about the other bands? Apollonia, Vanity, Mazarati, the Family? What are you trying to express through them?
A lot has to do with them. They come to me with an idea, and I try to bring that forth. I don’t give them anything. I don’t say, “Okay, you’re going to do this, and you’re going to do that.” I mean, it was Morris’ idea to be as sick as he was. That was his personality. We both like Don King and got a lot of stuff off him.

Why?
Because he’s outrageous and thinks everything’s so exciting – even when it isn’t.

People think you control those bands, that it’s similar to Rick James’ relationship with the Mary Jane Girls. A lot of people think he’s turning all the knobs.
I don’t know their situation. But you look at Sheila E. performing, and you can just tell she’s holding her own. The same goes for the Family. You and I were playing Ping-Pong, and they were doing just fine.

After all these years, does the music give you as much of a rush as it used to?
It increases more and more. One of my friends worries that I’ll short-circuit. We always say I’ll make the final fade on a song one time and … [Laughs, dropping his head in a dead slump]. It just gets more and more interesting every day. More than anything else, I try not to repeat myself. It’s the hardest thing in the world to do – there’s only so many notes one human being can muster. I write a lot more than people think I do, and I try not to copy that.

I think that’s the problem with the music industry today. When a person does get a hit, they try to do it again the same way. I don’t think I’ve ever done that. I write all the time and cut all the time. I want to show you the archives, where all my old stuff is. There’s tons of music I’ve recorded there. I have the follow-up album to 1999. I could put it all together and play it for you, and you would go “Yeah!” And I could put it out, and it would probably sell what 1999 did. But I always try to do something different and conquer new ground.

In people’s minds, it all boils down to “Is Prince getting too big for his breeches?” I wish people would understand that I always thought I was bad. I wouldn’t have got into the business if I didn’t think I was bad.

A year on from Lairport - some thoughts

On the 5th of February 2015, I got home at 11pm and opened my computer. I pressed refresh on several different tumblrs in open tabs and I realised something was happening.

Louis and Harry had got on a plane together.  I quickly learned (because I didn’t already know) how long it had been since they had openly travelled on the same plane. I looked at the pictures and videos from LAX.  “Harry and Louis” was trending on twitter.

Timezones were on my side, to some extent.  They had got on the plane, and now I could sleep. I know how long a trans-Pacific flight is and there was very little chance of anything happening until after I woke up. 

I woke up and “Harry and Louis” was still trending on twitter.  And then this picture came out (we never found it’s true origins right? It was sent to an update account in Switzerland or something - making it extra clear that someone wanted fandom to see it:

There was more - pictures and videos - they looked so happy and triumphant landing in Sydney.  Their names trended on twitter for 24 hours. It was (in a word I wasn’t yet embedded enough in the fandom to use) wild.

It was my first big fandom moment and it felt so significant and so joyous. Things were changing - they were getting better - this was the path to them coming out.

I’ve thought about that a bit, in the months since, when I’ve read other people talking about how depressing everything was and they wish that they’d gotten out.  For all I was confused in March and July I never really agreed - I loved it here.  And I’ve wondered if joining in this moment of take-off was part of the reason - part of why I was able to be ever hopeful.

I thought then it would be a straight line.  I’d already read quite a bit within the fandom and the idea of seeding made sense to  me.  This was a step on a much longer journey.  And with Singapore, the leaked rider and Elounor breaking up, for my first few months in fandom it felt like there was a carefully laid plan.  (I wonder sometimes if maybe that’s because there was a much simpler plan and if something - Zayn leaving and record label stuff - changed what had been a smooth ride into something much more complicated.  If there’s an alternate timeline when they did come out in November).  

I found out about Larry in January 2015, so I just missed living through one of the biggest fandom zig-zags. When the tweets from Louis came out two weeks ago, I looked up how long it was between the tweet from @Louis_Tomlinson to Jenn Selby to the dagger. Sixteen days doesn’t sound very long, hypothetically, but it’s a very longtime to live in a fandom.  It hasn’t yet been sixteen days.

I’ve loved almost all of it - but I’m not loving this.  And I’m also not sure.  At this stage I’ve ruled almost nothing out as an option (and then I seriously think about the possibility of straight Louis - and I realise that I probably have ruled that out).  Maybe that makes me weaker that people who have been on this particular ride longer than me - who haven’t been inculcated by the huge highs at the beginning.  But I don’t mind that.  


I don’t know what’s going on - I really don’t.    I am a little jealous of people who have some certainty.  I can’t resolve this current situation into something that makes any sense. 

I’m listening to ‘Home’ (the despair of the present can tinge memories - there were many glorious days to be a Larry in 2015 - and the night Home leaked was definitely one of them) - and I’m prepared to live with that uncertainty, at least for now.  The future will come and I can’t predict it and maybe at some point something will happen that makes me uncomfortable running this tumblr, or convince me I was wrong.

I think of Kristen Stewart a lot. It’s now clear that simulating sexual acts for the cameras with her older, married, boss, was a step towards her coming out.  However, little sense that must have made to people who knew she was queer at the time. Our homophobic, capitalist, misogynist society is that horrible - that that was the best option for a woman who was only 22.

Harry and Louis definitely aren’t on the straight path I imagined when I saw that picture.  But unfortunately the world is shit enough that they could still be trying to get to the same destination.  And until that’s clear I’ll live in uncertainty.

(and if in my heart I believe the lyrics of  ‘Home’ and ‘If I could fly’ and two bears more than I do twitter and instagram - it’s only my heart that’s at risk).
