We Took a Tour of Prince’s Home Before Coronavirus Shut it Down

When Prince was still alive, an invitation to Paisley Park was the stuff of dreams for a Prince fan.

But now, anyone with $50 can visit. You just have to drop off any camera equipment, including your phone, in the lobby – and be satisfied with committing the experience to memory.

Today marks four years since Prince’s untimely passing. And while a steady stream of unearthed material and re-releases keep his memory alive, there are plenty of superfans who would love to mark the occasion in person. But COVID-19 is preventing them from making a trip to Chanhassen to pay their respects to their idol.

Before the coronavirus pandemic shut everything down, VICE took a very exclusive look inside Prince’s enigmatic fortress with Dan Piepenbring, Prince’s unlikely co-author on the experimental biography, “The Beautiful Ones”.
