Kim Berry interview: talks about Prince the man. Black Lives Matter, Trayvon Martin, Freddie Gray

https://www.youtube.com/w...Q4ETJ5t3oo

Interview with Darrell Muhammad

Published on Oct 10, 2017
I interviewed Kim Berry, Prince's hair stylist for 28 yrs up to his death. Kim gives us her private experiences with the man Prince. She shared with us things never told before stories. Hear it directly from Kim who was with Prince at the top of his career. During the interview Kim broke down and started crying because of the loss of her friend.

She's a sweetheart. Prince was lucky to have her as a friend. She is one of the few in his circle that was a real friend.

Once he got rid of the relaxer and went natural, he no longer needed quite as much maintenance and upkeep. I think that had something to do with that decision. Plus, I think Kim's tenure as his around-the-clock stylist ended just before the time his looks began to change, which I think coincides with his health decline. Coincidence? I think not.

Edit: Also, I believe they still were in contact and working on other projects.

What’s the source for this? I’ve read/listened to quite a few interviews with Kim since April 2016 and I don’t remember her saying she quit working for him. In fact I think there was one where she said she had seen him just a couple weeks before he passed.

I think they are saying Prince no longer employeed her, not that she quit.

I’m asking what the source is. Did Kim say she was no longer working for him? If so, when?

I seem to recall she did his hair for the last event he had at PP, the one with the picture of him at his brand new piano and sad eyes.


In her interviews she has said more than once that he and her were in the works of getting a hair product line together.

Someone shared a facebook live Kim Kim Berry did the other day. During it said she was Prince’s stylist up until the time of his death. Not sure how to share the FB link.
