“Prince’s music taught me how to suck titties!” Tracy Morgan recalled of the late Prince. In an essay for a magazine, he cited some memories he had shared with the legendary icon at his Los Angeles home back then and it was totally full of emotions, some bordering on crass and crude?


Comedian Tracy Morgan and the late singer Prince spent some quality time together throughout the years, according to Perez Hilton. The first time was when he attended a wild party at the late singer’s home in Los Angeles.

In an essay for Billboard Magazine, he began to recall his fun memory of Prince by telling how he heard about his death. He stated that he was preparing for a performance in Las Vegas when he heard that Prince died. He said that he felt a sense of emptiness learning about his friend’s death.

“This standing ovation is for Prince – and I would like to have a moment of silence,” he announced at the end of his performance.

He said that he began to be a Prince fan when the singer released his “1999” album. According to the comedian, Prince and Michael Jackson were the “soundtrack to my life.” He also recalled that when his father died in 1987 he listened to “Conditions Of The Heart” after the burial. Apparently, it was the last song he told his father to listen and to which his father told him that it was a good record.

Then he stated how he got to personally know the legendary icon which was back at Prince’s Los Angeles home seven years ago. Prince had thrown out a wild party where the comedian and his friend got drunk by the end of the night. Both of them were in a sofa with two girls whom they had talked, laughed, and joked with. Prince along with his wife came wearing purple pajamas and told them to get out as they were already drunk.

“As I walked out the door, I grabbed him by the back of the neck and I pulled him close to me. I noticed that mole on his face — he was so pretty, I turned gay for about five seconds,” he recalled.

Then he also recalled another good memory of Prince when they were hanging out at a Los Angeles bar, “He was down to earth: regular, no extra cheese, no pepperoni — just a slice and a Coke! He was shining like new money.”

“Prince’s music taught me how to suck titties! He taught me how to be gentle. Because of him, I once sucked a titty for an hour. At the end, it looked like a tater tot.” According to him, he loved Prince.
