While there are countless books written on Prince, (and I practically own the majority of them), what’s endearing about Touré‘s perspective in I Would Die 4 U: Why Prince Became an Icon, is its attempt to piece together the puzzle that is — Prince. The journalist, award-winning author, and TV personality draws from interviews with band members, former girlfriends, scholars, and interviews with the artist himself to make sociological, economical, political, and psychological assertions in an attempt to uncover who Prince really is. Of course, we will never truly know the answer to that question, however, in I Would Die 4 U you gain understanding behind the factors of Prince‘s megastar status and some of the idiosyncrasies the man hath made. A very compelling read for the Prince fan and anyone interested in reveling in American popular culture.
