The first time I saw Purple Rain I was eight, and it was at my friend Peachy’s slumber party.
Peachy’s mom let us pick out whatever movie we wanted at the video store (this was right after she took us to Chuck E. Cheese, of course, where I killed it at ski ball), and I’m 100% positive she had no idea what the movie was about when she rented it.
Even though none of us understood what was going on when we watched it, we knew that Prince was in it, and that’s all we really needed to know. To this day, the soundtrack from the movie is one of my favorite albums of all time.
I don’t care pretty baby, just take me with you.
To take it a step further, the colors on my Purple Rain tee (thanks, Target) inspired this orange and purple makeup look…
