Prince Rogers Nelson wrote his first song at age seven, and soon taught himself to play the piano, drums, and guitar. In the early 1980s, Prince wondered how to make his music—a mix of pop, funk, soul, and R&B—more appealing to an audience that loved more mainstream rock shows. He ended up making Purple Rain, the hit movie and soundtrack that turned him into a megastar. Experimenting with style, genre, and society's expectations of him as an African-American performer, Prince defied labels. Follow Prince's journey to superstardom, and learn how this wildly talented, prolific, and often-controversial performer touched the hearts of fans around the world.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The brilliant coming-of-age-and-into-superstardom story of one of the greatest artists of all time, in his own words—featuring never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, and the exquisite memoir he began writing before his tragic death NAMED ONE OF THE BEST MUSIC BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND THE GUARDIAN • NOMINATED FOR THE NAACP IMAGE AWARD Prince was a musical genius, one of the most beloved, accomplished, and acclaimed musicians of our time. He was a startlingly original visionary with an imagination deep enough to whip up whole worlds, from the sexy, gritty funk paradise of “Uptown” to the mythical landscape of Purple Rain to the psychedelia of “Paisley Park.” But his most ambitious creative act was turning Prince Rogers Nelson, born in Minnesota, into Prince, one of the greatest pop stars of any era. The Beautiful Ones is the story of how Prince became Prince—a first-person account of a kid absorbing the world around him and then creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and fame that would come to define him. The book is told in four parts. The first is the memoir Prince was writing before his tragic death, pages that bring us into his childhood world through his own lyrical prose. The second part takes us through Prince’s early years as a musician, before his first album was released, via an evocative scrapbook of writing and photos. The third section shows us Prince’s evolution through candid images that go up to the cusp of his greatest achievement, which we see in the book’s fourth section: his original handwritten treatment for Purple Rain—the final stage in Prince’s self-creation, where he retells the autobiography of the first three parts as a heroic journey. The book is framed by editor Dan Piepenbring’s riveting and moving introduction about his profound collaboration with Prince in his final months—a time when Prince was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself and his ideas to the world, while retaining the mystery and mystique he’d so carefully cultivated—and annotations that provide context to the book’s images. This work is not just a tribute to an icon, but an original and energizing literary work in its own right, full of Prince’s ideas and vision, his voice and image—his undying gift to the world.

Fallen giants, taken too soon. Unexpected deaths are not entirely unexpected-they surround us every day. What shocks us is "the who," the how, and the why of them, especially when it comes to celebrities. Whether they fought for our rights or spoke to us through song, moved us on screen, stage, or provided leadership for our country, they gave us a window into their hearts and minds, and their loss unites friends and strangers in an outpouring of sadness. Deaths That Shocked the World, the new Special Edition from TIME-LIFE, tells the stories of how we lost some of our most beloved icons to accidents, drugs, murder, and political assassination. And regardless of how they died, it is agreed that they all went too soon. Princess Diana and James Dean, John Lennon and Prince, Kurt Cobain and Robin Williams, Martin Luther King and both John F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr., are among the many featured in this Special Edition that profiles the impact their lives and deaths had on our world.

This illustrated compendium celebrates LGBTQIA+ history and culture, written by and according to culture icon Justin Elizabeth Sayre! Based on Sayre's five-part show in New York City, From Gay to Z is a humorous collection of the rich legacy of gay culture, told through the letters of the alphabet. From ABBA to addiction, hair and makeup to HIV, Fannie Flagg to fierce, Sayre offers their own perspective on the things that have influenced gay culture today, including iconic figures, historical moments, ongoing issues in the LGBTQIA+ community, and everything in between.

STRONG VOICE AND ENGAGING CONTENT: Sayre's writing is lively, engaging, and rich.

They host their own podcast, Sparkle & Circulate, where they interview performers, writers, and other creative minds of the LGBTQIA+ community. As an activist, Justin's charity benefit show, "Night of a Thousand Judys," raises money for the Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBTQIA+ youth and is now in its 7th year.

The Beautiful Ones no es solo el tributo a un icono, también es una obra literaria poderosa y original por derecho propio, donde bullen las ideas de Prince, su manera de ver el mundo, su voz y su efigie, su imperecedera ofrenda al mundo. Esta es la historia de superación y ascenso al estrellato de un artista irrepetible. Escrita de su puño y letra, y acompañada de fotos inéditas, dietarios y apuntes íntimos, incluye también el conmovedor testimonio autobiográfico que Prince comenzó a elaborar poco antes de su inesperada muerte. Prince era un genio de la música, uno de los creadores más queridos, versátiles y respetados de nuestro tiempo. Fue un visionario tremendamente original, con una imaginación capaz de recrear universos enteros, desde el paraíso prometido a ritmo de funk de «Uptown» hasta los paisajes míticos de Purple Rain, pasando por la psicodelia de «Paisley Park». Sin embargo, su creación más ambiciosa fue convertir a Prince Rogers Nelson, nacido en Minnesota, en Prince, una de las mayores estrellas del pop de cualquier época. The Beautiful Ones nos cuenta cómo Prince se transformó en Prince: su relato en primera persona nos muestra a un ávido joven que decide empaparse primero del mundo que le rodea para luego moldear un personaje, una visión artística y finalmente una manera de vivir, mucho antes de que sus primeros éxitos y la fama lo constriñan y pretendan redefinirle. El libro está dividido en cuatro partes. La primera es el testimonio autobiográfico que Prince escribía antes de su repentina y trágica muerte; son páginas que nos llevan al mundo de su infancia a través de una prosa lírica y personal. La segunda presenta, a través de diarios y libretas de recortes, los años formativos de Prince como músico, previos a la publicación de su primer disco. La tercera nos muestra, en sinceras imágenes, la evolución de Prince hasta llegar a la cúspide, a su logro artístico más grande, que descubriremos en la cuarta parte del libro: el tratamiento original y manuscrito de Purple Rain, sin duda la conclusión del proceso de crearse a sí mismo emprendido por el artista, que en esta pieza da a las tres secciones previas forma de viaje heroico . El editor del libro, Dan Piepenbring, completa el retrato con una introducción fascinante y conmovedora sobre cómo fue colaborar con Prince en sus últimos meses de vida, en un momento en que el artista meditó profundamente sobre cómo podía revelar al mundo más detalles de sí mismo y de su manera de pensar sin perder el misterio y la mística que tan cuidadosamente había tejido a su alrededor. También son de Piepenbring las notas que dotan de contexto a las imágenes del libro.
