Im enjoying my Sign O' Times viewing early after watching the Today show touring. I cant be the only one excited to see PP, but at the same time saddened that its more of a memorial, can I?

PP seems so lonely, empty. The doves being quiet is reflective of PP. Prince and PP go hand in hand.

Seems like the family is doing as Prince wished/instructed per the family's interviews.

My heart goes out to Tyka, not only for her loss, but the pressure and stress she is under now.

first of all, all 3 sisters have tired eyes. Makes me wonder whether Prince did a little something about his eyelids. Just an observation, a thought.

Secondly, would LOVE to hear more jazzy music from Prince, without the Darth Vader voice over. There were some brilliant parts on TRC. Really do hope that comes out.

What's a tired eye?

Nothing. These women are in the their 70s. Their eyes are tired because they are old.

Aren't they more like Prince's age - in their late 50s to mid 60s maybe?

My point is that Prince's eyes weren't like that. No tired eyes for him. Maybe he did have something done about his eyes. No ?

Tyka isn't in her 70s.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

The first segment was a mini tour of PP with Sharon and Norrine making brief comments in response to Al Roker's observations about various areas of PP including the control room, soundstage, npg room, etc. They said that he preserved everything for the purpose of using PP as a museum and left instructions.

Al also spoke with one of the curators of Prince's wardrobe who said there are 6000 pieces of clothing preserved.

Hour two was a short interview with Tyka, who said that she was very close to Prince and explained what they wanted people to remember when they visit. The part about the doves going silent touched my heart. sad

I was suprised by how much Tyka's speaking voice reminds me of Prince.

There was no mention of the city council issue.

Tyka's interview is up on the Today Show site already.



Did Roker ask Sharon about "Sister" ?

Well that was a sweet interview. She did good. The part about the doves was kinda sad and looking at her mannerisms...she has Prince's hands. Looking at the Prince pics hanging in the background makes a fan wanna cry. I still dont like the way this whole thing since April went down, but I do believe that people need to give Tyka a break...shes doing the best she can under the circumstances.

RIP Prince I will forever heart and miss U

Al did a self-filmed segment on his phone before interviewing the sisters...

.

The elevator was in the background; they've covered it with a black curtain from what I could see.

sad

I wonder what Prince's bedroom/sleeping quarters looked like?

I know its not part of the tour but I think they showed Elvis back in the day, liked to have seen Prince's, the layout, the furniture, etc.... razz lol

I'm in support of the family but after watching these clips I have changed my mind about the opening of PP. I now think they are opening it too soon and before anyone says it I'm aware of the issues with taxes, Princes wishes etc but it just doesn't seem right to me that this is happening tomorrow. One day in the future yes, but tomorrow? that just messes with my mind.

I watched both segmants and it was overwhelming.

It reminded me that P is not coming back.

Seeing the lyrics to Stay Cool on the music stand was devastating.

Just because you never read it anywhere or you got the impression from afar that he wasn't close to his sister doesn't mean the closeness didn't exist. In reality only the two of them know the depths of their relationship. Other people's comments on their relationship and your view of it are just opinions.

Do some Goggling a couple of years ago she had an e-book and did some interviews about how she and Prince became close after their parents died. He even took her to rehab and she worked for him.

She was even with him at the party on that last Saturday.

Tyka isn't in her 70s.

I did not say she was !!! I hope the OP was speaking about the older sisters and Tyka has had a rough life her eyes show it.

Sorry guys but everybody who was close to Prince knew he had no real relationship with his relatives, he had Douane working for him, he was his bodyguard around 1990 for a while and disappeared after that. Tyka was around only the last couple of years. And believe me, her only aim is his money..the ones who know the truth stay silent not to loose a piece of the money cake
