Report: Ghost of Prince Rogers Nelson Haunts Paisley Park Mansion

Staff whisper about unexplained noises and sightings. And to be honest, it was Halloween 24/7 when he was alive

 

October 18, 2016

People who've seen Paisley Park have a strange sense the singer knew it was about to open, and prepared himself for the after world. And to be honest, was it not Halloween 24/7 when The Artist was alive?

Paisley Park Studios singer Prince Rogers Nelson home and recording studio, opened to the public but only for three days. It was a test to see if the place meets local standards for traffic, parking and environmental degradation.

People who've seen it get a strange sense the singer knew it was about to open, and prepared Prince's paisley palace to be opened to the public. "Even his little red corvette is still there," mused one reporter, from ET Online. "He had a vision, and he finished it."

Prince's Sexually ambiguous symbol was very visible in the foyer as one entered.

A bedroom is bathed in purple light. Prince would have loved it. He expressed several times to his sister his desire to invite the public into the building after his death, which of course occurred much earlier than anyone expected. The singer was only 56 when he died on April 21, 2016, in an elevator at the Paisley Park studio which doubled as his residence.

In life, Prince had many fans and no doubt deserved many more. But to be honest many people found something creepy about the diminutive singer when he was alive. Since his death, staff have whispered that the singers spirit still inhabits Paisley Park. There have been late night sightings and unexplainable noises.

Sometimes, staff and visitors swear they can hear someone singing the following words, as if through the wind:

Dearly beloved, We are gathered here today To get through this thing called life. Electric word life. It means forever and that's a mighty long time

But I'm here to tell you, There's something else. The afterworld! A world of never ending happiness You can always see the sun, day or night

And after all, what did The Artist mean when he wrote these immortal words? Was it some sort of prediction or precognition?

Where else would Prince, the dreamer of so many dreams, want to haunt?

The studio was designed by architecture firm BOTO Design Inc, of Santa Monica, and was completed in 1988. It contains two live music venues used as rehearsal spaces.

After the Paisley Park record label folded in 1994, Prince continued to live and record at Paisley Park Studios. Prince's intention before his death was to establish Paisley Park as a public venue. Elvis Presley's former home, Graceland, is a major Tennessee tourist attraction. On August 24, 2016, it was announced that Paisley Park would be turned into a museum open to the public.

Tours of the Paisley Park Museum are set to start next month, local zoning willing. And local authorities will probably go along with it, since the studio will be a major draw for it's rural/suburban Chanhassen, MN surroundings. Graceland Holdings, the company that has managed Elvis Presley's Graceland since 1982, is set to organize the tours of Paisley Park.

Please do not try to make his memory some creepy ghost story. His spirit is beautiful. He was 57 NOT 56. in the tour Friday Oct 14, there was NO purple bedroom! Please report facts and don't put spin on untruths. He will live forever within THE PURPLE FAMILY.

I feel that yes, it was too soon to open up Paisley Park to the public. I also now, he was taken from us too soon, and I believe the true will one day come out about his untimely death. His spirit will not rest with all of this that is going on with his estate, for he is not satisfied with this at all. Again, the real truth will prevail.

I just can't believe that the family would even open up the building so soon after 5 months of his passing in the elevator...Prince wouldn't have wanted this especially with detectives still investigating his death...He is not at peace with this at all...Very inconsiderate of the family to do this so soon...Just money hungry inconsiderate idiots!!!I wouldn't be surprise if Prince comes back and shut all of it down in some type form or fashion because of the way they have forced the opening of his compound to the public like this...May God have mercy on all their souls...

I was one of the VERY fortunate fans to visit Paisley Park on its grand opening this past Thursday (Oct.6). There was nothing spooky or creepy about this beautiful building. Prince is no longer there sadly, but it is a place for his fans to visit and pay respect to this wonderfully gifted man and the purple legacy he leaves behind! I felt honored to be able to walk the floors and space this purple genius walked.

I know Prince's spirit is in Paisley Park. He died there and it was not a natural death. He is not able to rest in peace due to the circumstances of how and why he died. When I go to Paisley Park next summer I know I will feel his presence too

Absolute nonsense on haunting seriously? Prince had planned Paisley Park to be a FAM museum for YEARS...You OBVIOUSLY DIDNT know him. He was a Visionary

Leroy writes:

What a huge gift that the doors have finally opened to all of his fans. If you cannot attend, enjoy aerial drone footage of Paisley Park and First Avenue in this Prince Memorial video: https://youtu.be/0ZvG16AYCq4
