Prince's shoe-maker used to supply 30-40 pairs of high-heeled boots/month, totaling 3,000 pairs

Prince was self-conscious about his height -- 5'3" -- and wore high-heeled boots (either 4" or 3 1/3") whenever he went out in public, and moreover, he did not like to be seen wearing the same pair of boots at two different appearances on the same day. Prince contracted with Andre No. 1, a famous cobbler-to-the-stars on Sunset Boulevard founded by Andre Rostomyan, whose client roster includes everyone from Frank Sinatra to Lady Gaga. Rostomyan made a shoe last -- a wooden model -- of Prince...

Why These Women Want To Take The "Dread" Out Of "Dreadlocks"

"My locs are far from dreadful, they are simply locs. They are beautiful, twisted sections of my hair," says April-Louise, one of the four women I met with photographer Olivia Ema while photographing Black British women who proudly wear their hair in locs.Until we sat with April-Louise, I hadn’t considered why the word “dread” was ever associated with the style and have since made a point of ridding it from my vocabulary.Though they have existed for thousands of years, when talking about locs, ...

Read Prince’s First Interview, Printed in His High School Newspaper (1976)

Two years before Prince released his first album For You and before he began his ascent into the funk-rock-pop pantheon, he was a very talented, very ambitious, and occasionally frustrated high school senior at Central High in Minneapolis.

If Prince was charismatic enough to be picked up on the high school paper’s radar, he doesn’t ...

Jane Siberry Returns To Kateness With Angels Bend Closer

Angels Bend Closer, billed as Jane Siberry’s first official album in five years, is actually her first one in close to 20 that I’ve fallen in love with. Alas, ours was a torrid musical love affair that bloomed in the the early 80’s and faded in the mid-90’s. She made flawless albums and I bought and played them religiously (ominous foreshadowing) right up til the day I got rock blocked by… Him. You see, Jane fell head over heels for a bearded young man, a lad who was way ahead of the lumbersexu...
