New Shelby J Interview: "I think he knew his time on this earth was limited..."

I am very grateful to Shelby J for being a little more open with us.
It is important to so many of us who loved him too, that we hear the perspectives of those who were close to him, so that we can try and understand better.
Thanks, Shelby.

And yes, he is blessing her. Many others too.

Everyone's time is limited. Is she saying he thought his passing was imminent?

RIP sad

Yes...she is directly saying that she feels he knew on some level that his time was near...she relates a stroy about her father who had died a few years earlier...She Flat out says there were a lot of behavioural similarities between P and her Dad...namely becoming more OPEN and sharing inner feelings that had previously been kept hidden...

The three parts are fascinating...earlier she mentions how Everyone who came into his presence fawned and lost their Shizzle,

How he was always way way WAY Ahead of any of us, SHe says something like we are in 2017 he was in 2030

( anangellooksdown and I have shared many an orgnote on this )

I dont think he was consciously thinking that he was going to Die, rather he was FEELING the time coming and there was a sense of urgency to complete certain things....

Everyone's time is limited. But you don't have the help Death along.

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

Shelby doesn't know his private life. Dr Phil (former Oprah couch assistant) said everyone puts on a front in public. Mayte Garcia and Manuela Testolini will know a lot more about his real persona, even if they go back a while. Shelby is sycophantically obfuscating.

I don't think the Piano and Mic tour was his farewell tour. He had to tour to keep paying the bills. His bones weren't like they were in his 20's. He couldn't do the things that he used to, and this was a good way to go on tour, with just his piano. He had scaled down a lot.

I am still on the fence on whether he did or didn't know. There are valid points coming from both sides, however as of now...the info that has been shared with the public is limited
