Yara Shahidi and Her Parents on the Lessons They Learned From Prince



Oe9LR.jpg


Yara still remembers Prince’s fuzzy purple rug from when she was little, but nothing was as enduringly influential as her father’s close working relationship with his world-famous boss. In fact, that’s what laid the groundwork for the family’s high expectations of their “creative experiences, work relationships, and personal relationships,” Yara tells TIME. Read More..

VERY sweet.
He is a very supportive and loving Dad.
Look at her face as her Dad compliments her at the end.
Priceless.
That’s the most important thing I see here.

You're welcome, pink. I could not agree more. I am always struck by how close they seem as a family unit. And, he seems to adore his wife. Clearly, they all have a very deep love for Prince and are forever grateful for all that he did for their family.

Also, I love how the cover photo from Prince: A Private View is positioned so that P is looking down on them. Afshin said in an interview that he loves that photo so much because it looks almost like a black and white photo. He observed that the white walls of that empty truck trailer look almost like the wings of an angel on P. Now, I can't look at that photo without seeing the picture in that same light.

That's a lovely thought about the picture.It's also very sweet how supportive Prince was of Yara and how proud he was of her accomplishments.I found it very touching to learn that he had a photo of her as a child on his desk in his office at Paisley.

Yes, the photo on his desk is TOO cute. She signed it for him, too. I don't remember the exact inscription, but I know it was addressed to "Mr. Prince." It's amazing how many lives he touched.

yes It was shown during her father's interview on...ng America. Here is a screenshot of the adorable photo. I wouldn't be surprised if this weren't her very first time signing one of her celebrity shots. Can you imagine having Prince be that person for you. It's incredible.
