WAIT WHAT?! Prince's Favorite Color WASN'T Purple?!


Tyka Nelson recently dropped a major bombshell regarding her late, half brother.

She talked to the Evening Standard about an upcoming exhibit of Prince artifacts set to open in London and mentioned one of his beloved instruments."The standout piece for me is his orange Cloud guitar," the publication quoted Nelson as saying."It is strange because people always associate the color purple with Prince, but his favorite color was actually orange."

WAIT... Minnesota's own, The Artist Formerly known as Prince? "The Purple One?'" That Prince? 

After his death, there were numerous purple tributes from venues around the world and fans wore purple as a sign of mourning. Prince is so closely associated with the color purple that he now has his own shade, thanks to the Pantone Color Institute.


The "My Name Is Prince" exhibit will open at the O2 arena in London on October 26. It will run for 21 days -- the record-setting number of days Prince performed at the venue in 2007.
