Prince doing Prince things

Kelley L. Carter:

CHANHASSEN, Minnesota — The room was a bit too dark. Prince turned to a member of his staff and said, “Turn up the lights so the doves can see.”

This was the beginning of an impromptu, informal, and certainly unexpected late-night conversation between 10 surprised reporters and one of the world’s best-known musicians in the studio where he’s been making music for more than 30 years. And if you’re Prince, your studio is going to have a few birdcages containing live doves.

Bizarre story, but I wouldn’t expect anything less from Prince.
