Prince Wrote An Incredible Letter To A Fan After “Purple Rain” Came Out

“I wasn’t much on school. I was 2 busy listening 2 the grass grow.” This Letter of Note kills it.

1. Okay, so this letter from Prince to a young fan is kind of everything.

Dearest Annalisa,

It is so nice of 2 write me. I don’t always have time 2 reply but your letters surely brighten my day.

You’re so sweet. I’m glad you’re my friend. If u dig the video, wait until u see the movie. I’m very proud of it. I hope u are 2.

Congratulations on making thru jr. high. I’m sure u did better than I. I wasn’t much on school. I was 2 busy listening 2 the grass grow.

Thank u again 4 writing me.

Until I hear from u,

Prince

This is from from June 1984 and was written to a young fan named Annalisa Masters just after Purple Rain came out. It’s too good to believe. Or should I say “2 good?”
