Prince's Former Home in Paisley Park Set to Become Tribute Museum to Late Artist
Prince’s former home in Paisley Park is set to become a tribute museum to the late artist, according to his brother-in-law. Prince died this past Thursday at the young age of 57, after being found collapsed in the elevator in his home.
According to NME, the Purple One was officially proceed dead at 10:07 AM that morning, and while an autopsy has been performed, no official cause of death is yet known.
“We will turn Paisley Park into a museum in Prince’s memory,” his brother-in-law Maurice Philips told The Sun.
“It would be for his fans,” Philips further said. “He was all about the fans - this would remember his music, which is his legacy. Prince was always private but would have wanted his music remembered.”
While police have been thoroughly looking into his death, they do not believe that suicide was the cause, due to “no obvious signs of trauma” to his body.
The music industry and beyond reacted strongly to Prince’s death, with the likes of President Barack Obama, Madonna, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd and Katy Perry paying tribute following his death.
One of the most insightful tributes came from his first manager, Owen Husney, who gave an exclusive interview to NPR about Prince.
“You know, he had just turned 18, and it was very much a co-working atmosphere between he and I at that point,” Husney told NPR. “Once he went on to his second album and all the subsequent albums, obviously, he became Prince, and he was very much in charge. But he was very willing to listen to me and to take my direction, which I think is probably the only time that ever happened, to be honest with you.”
