As Prince fans mourn the loss of the music legend, it has been revealed that the singer’s Paisley Park estate, where he lived, recorded music, and died, allegedly will be turned into a museum. The musician’s brother-in-law Maurice Phillips announced the news just days after the news of the artist’s death.
“Prince was always private, but would have wanted his music remembered,” Phillips told The Sun. “We will turn Paisley Park into a museum in Prince’s memory. It would be for the fans. He was all about the fans—this would remember his music, which is his legacy.”
Prince’s collaborator and former love interest Sheila E. confirmed the news, saying that the artist had always wanted to let fans into his home, a 55,000-square-foot compound.
“He’s been gathering memorabilia and stuff from all the tours, like my drums and his motorcycle. There’s a hallway of his awards and things, which he really didn’t care about too much, but he displayed it for the fans because he knows that they would want to see it,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “There’s pictures of him all down the halls, some you’ve seen before and some never [seen]… There’s a mural on the wall with his hands out, and on one side is all the people he was influenced by and the other side is all of us who have played with him. It’s beautiful.”
