Prince is writing his memoirs

Prince announced on stage last night that he is writing his life story.

During a gig at the Avenue nightclub in New York he asked the audience “You all still read books, right?”

“This is my first one. We just started working on it. My brother Dan is helping me with it. He’s, um, a good critic. He’s not a yes man at all.

“We’re starting at the beginning, from my first memory, and hopefully we can get all the way to the Super Bowl.”

The book is currently titled The Beautiful Ones and will be published in the autumn of 2017.

“Prince is a towering figure in global pop culture” publishers Random House said press statement, “and his music has been the soundtrack for untold numbers of people for more than a generation; his creative genius has provided the musical landscape for our lives.

“Millions of words have been written about Prince — books and articles, essays and criticism — but we’re thrilled to be publishing Prince’s powerful reflections on his own life in his own incandescently vivid, witty, and poetic voice.”
