Guest Post / Prince as Decorator

I spoke to S this morning and she said one week was down and we got three more to go before she gets back. I was shocked, because I swear she's been gone two weeks already. but no, it just seems that way. this sucks.

Anyway, I've had Prince on my mind for a couple days now, so I thought I should share a little bit of info on Prince - as it pertains to home design.

Many people don't realize Prince is a talented designer. But you know who knows? Carlos Boozer. Back in 2006, Carlos Boozer - who plays in the NBA for the Utah Jazz - was renting his LA mansion to Prince for $70,000 a month.

What he didn't know was that the place was nice, but not nice enough for Prince. He ended up painting purple stripes all over it, the numbers 3121 on the outside - which was the name of his newest album at the time - and his symbol on the walls. Best of all, he repiped the whole plumbing system to build a beauty salon on the first floor.

Carlos Boozer ended up suing Prince for more than $11 million.

I don't know what happened, but i assume nothing, because Prince is Prince, and Carlos Boozer is just Carlos Boozer.


(sorry babe! i don't have anything else to write about here...)
