With Prince’s latest Piano and a Microphone Tour, it seems he is finally accepting the moon as his truest soulmate. He has often spoken of the moon in his songs in ways which help us define their intimate interactions. Many instances mention the moon simply as a bystander who bears witness to his romantic relationships. There was a point where the acknowledgement of the moon’s presence turned into infatuation, and in some cases even a competition with Prince’s love interests for his relentless attention. In recent years, Prince has lived as though he has become one with the moon. He celebrates its prominent nights with music at Paisley Park, parades around on stage wearing moon-infused tunics, and has shared art with us which merges their existence. Children grow up hearing stories of princes and princesses, but the ultimate tale of adoration is that which continues to unfold between the moon and a musician.
