All day and night we will celebrate and remember the life of Prince, and we wanted to share some “unknown” facts that you may never have heard when it comes to Prince. You can check them out below!

  1. Before being known as the artist formally known as Prince, did you know his nickname growing up was “Skipper”?

  2. According to an article in JET magazine, apparently when Prince was 10 years old he danced on stage with James Brown.

  3. Purple Rain director told Spin magazine that one of Prince’s favorite meals was SPAGHETTI & ORANGE JUICE, yes a very odd pairing!

  4. If you ever had the pleasure of being a guest in Prince’s home, according to a Rolling Stone profile, at one point he kept a yellow gnome “covered by a swarm of butterflies” in a guest bedroom.
