Prince Rogers Nelson has decided to gift us with the story of his glorious ascension in the pop culture psyche, by announcing a memoir--the most necessary celebrity memoir.
The book, temporarily titled The Beautiful Ones, will chronicle the Oscar, Grammy, and Golden-Globe-winning musician's childhood, and rise to fame; it's content, of course, will be nothing short of princely.
His publisher released this perfectly longwinded statement:
"Will take readers on an unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work -- from the family that shaped him and the people, places, and ideas that fired his creative imagination, to the stories behind the music that changed the world.
I'm already tearing up.
The singer told his audience at an industry event last night, that his brother would be helping him write it:
“This is my first book. My brother Dan is helping me with it. He's a good critic and that's what I need. He's not a 'yes' man at all and he's really helping me get through this. We're starting from the beginning from my first memory and hopefully we can go all the way up to the Super Bowl."
Bless you, Dan!
My only hope is that every memoir copy comes complete with a lavender butterfly that flutters out when you open the first page.
