Britain’s not-always-reliable “Sun” tabloid claims PRINCE’s huge, $10 million estate could become the next Graceland. The place goes by the name Paisley Park, and it’s located in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
Prince’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips told them it’s going to be turned into “a museum in Prince’s memory.” Quote, “It’d be for the fans. He was all about the fans . . . this would remember his music, which is his legacy.
“Prince was always private, but he would’ve wanted his music remembered.”
And his friend SHEILA E. said, quote, “We’re hoping to make Paisley what he wanted it to be. [He] was working on it being a museum. He’s been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle.”
It’s kind of amusing that Prince has only been dead a week . . . he didn’t even have a will or leave any other instructions . . . and yet, there’s somehow all these plans to turn his studio into some sort of attraction.
And we’ve also heard The Revolution is reuniting to do some shows. Seriously, everybody needs to chill on the post-death monetizing. By the way, TMZ says that Prince has been addicted to Percocet for over five years.
