My “Prince” Experience

I have had the pleasure of meeting Prince a couple of times. Until you have had the opportunity to be in his presence, you would never understand the above photo.

In my eyes Prince is the man and there is no one in the music business close to his status. Growing up at the height (no pun intended) of the careers of Prince, MJ, and even Madonna there was always the debate of Michael Jackson vs. Prince. I admire and respect both, but to me it is clear who ultimately won that battle. At age 50, Prince has managed to stay on top of his game and look good at it! Did you see Prince’s Super Bowl Performance????

Exposed to LIFE Prince. A few months ago my friend Rashida who is Prince’s personal DJ and I went out to see DJ AM and Jazzy Jeff. Prince decided to meet Rashida at the club we were going to. As I was enjoying DJ AM’s mash up set, Prince leaned over to me and out of no where says “so, do you like Radiohead”. The question stuck me as odd since it appeared to come out of thin air. Living in Prince’s world, giving details is not tolerated, so all I will say is this… Although odd, his question was sure genius for many reasons and on several levels. Keep in mind he asked me before Coachella! Read about Prince vs. Radiohead right here.

I am sure you don’t get it. No worries. Understanding Prince is something only a chosen few are privileged to.

I Don’t Want Your LIFE

Sophie Monk

Sophie Monk is a blog where anything goes. Although is a bit graphic, it is also refreshing. Unlike most blogs that mainly cover the same celebrity gossip, the writer of this blog dares to give a no holds barred, straight from the hip, honest opinion.

Comments like this on the above photo of Sophie Monk (Australian Pop Singer, Click, Date Movie) are constantly expressed.

“It might be time to take a weed whacker to that sh*t.”

You have to love this blogging thing especially a blog that has “Sticks and Stones Love” as a motto. Blogging allows people to say want they want, when they want, and how they want. Exposed to LIFE and BLOGGING!

A Warrior Nation

A Warrior Nation – “Superficial”

Thursday I had an opportunity to check out my friends A Warrior Nation live at Molly Malone’s in West Los Angles. Exposed to LIFE through music, I had an AMAZING time!

If you are not aware of the band, A Warrior Nation is Nick Eaholtz & Adam Lampert, an incredibly dynamic writing and production team. Together they have created a catalog of poignant soulful funk grooves. Their messages range from relevant social causes to provocative life situations, including relationship drama. A modern fusion of Soul Funk with elements of Rock, Jazz, and R&B, A Warrior Nation is reminiscent of Jamiroquai and Brand New Heavies.

LIFE as a Blogger????

Welcome world! “Exposed to LIFE” will follow some of my personal experiences in LIFE as well as take a look at LIFE in general. I chose the name “Exposed to LIFE” because I am fascinated with the twist and turns we have been exposed (unprotected, uncovered, vulnerable, visible, etc) to as we experience LIFE.

Why blog you may ask… Well, my life is very interesting as I have been told. I have also been told that I should write for a living. As much as I like to bump my gums (talk), I have always been very nervous and to be honest afraid to share too much of my LIFE or personal thoughts. As I figure this thing out called LIFE, I have decided to give those who are interested a glimpse into how I have been “Exposed to LIFE”. After all, being over exposed sets you up for some good stories to tell!

I hope you enjoy my journey through LIFE!
