prince death overdose not aids—the official cause of death has been revealed as opiate overdose, securing that place in Hell for the National Enquirer
Prince’s cause of death has been revealed.
And no, we are not AIDS-shaming—there should be no stigma attached to HIV and AIDS—it is a disease that should be viewed no differently to others, such as cancer, diabetes etc.
We are National Enquirer-shaming, for a bullshit, fabricated front cover story, jumping on what they perceive to be the most salacious outrageous line, designed purely to sell copies of the tabloid.
We are National Enquirer-shaming, for their relentless policy of AIDS-sensationalizing celebrity deaths at each and every opportunity—as shown earlier this year with their David Bowie “secret AIDS battle” story.
You can read that gem here, if you can stomach it.
The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office released the autopsy report earlier today, which had been delayed pending toxicology reports.
The report says that there were no "other significant conditions" contributing to his death.
Firmly kicking to the curb the Enquirer’s “source” based web-of-lies.
The overdose was determined to be accidental, and the drug that took Prince’s life was Fentanyl—a powerful synthetic opiate that is more potent than morphine.
Fentanyl’s primary use is to treat the severe pain of cancer patients.
It’s often the next step in treating people who have graduated past Percocet, Vicodin, and morphine.
Prince was spotted filling prescriptions at the local pharmacy at least 4 times the week before his demise.
At the time of death, 5’3” Prince was 57-years old, and weighed only 112 pounds.
Which, although terrifying low, is still markedly higher than the Enquirer's sensationalist claim of 80 pounds.
When Prince's body was discovered in the elevator, he was dressed in a black cap, black shirt, gray undershirt, black pants, black boxer briefs and black socks.
TMZ reported that days before his passing, the singer’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing when he almost died from a Percocet overdose.
Prince’s addiction had escalated to such a frightening point that his entourage called a rehab doctor in California to get him help.
The doctor was unavailable, but since the situation was so dire, his son, who is not a medic, flew out to the Paisley Park compound in Minnesota-- with a backpack filled with opioids.
But, at that point it was just too late.

Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
We know Ellis Ross is fun and has an offbeat style, but her hairstyle felt like a caricature, and one that was completely unnecessary because there are Black women who have the kind of hair she seemed to be trying to mimic.
Black hair is political.
It is still a radical act for Black people to wear our hair just as it grows out of our heads.
Just as Black people are diverse, Black hair is inclusive of a broad range of colors, textures, density, and porosity. Terms like 3B and 4C are commonly used to describe hair types. While some people still think of hair types as a grading scheme, much like the debate about having "good hair," we are learning more about how hair types have specific care needs. As we grow deeper in love with ourselves and our hair, Black people are looking for the best products on the market and are committed to supporting Black businesses.
When Tracee Ellis Ross announced the launch of Pattern Beauty, there was a lot of buzz and excitement. A Black woman we love and whose hair has always been an unapologetically overwhelming feature was going to respond to Black hair care needs. Sign us up! Now, however, with her Elle magazine cover, some Black women are wondering if Ross is taking up too much of the Black hair space.
