Rachel Neumann of AlterNet has a sweet personal story titled The Best Prince of My Life which retraces her love of Prince’s music back in her teenage years and then jumps to the present and her first-ever Prince concert:

I can now say I have evidence that it is better to love Prince as a fully grown 33-year-old woman than it was to love him as a teenager. There’s no teenage shame, no fear that someone will find out how much I really like him, no desperate fantasy that he will see me in the audience, look into my eyes, and know we belong together. He is exactly like I remembered – short, pan-sexual, and multitalented. It’s me who is different. Instead of helping me escape, as he did when I was a teenager, Prince helped me celebrate who I am now, the real eighties long behind me and never, ever to return.
