Prince stopped celebrating birthdays. Here's why
Today's Morning Edition music is from Prince with "June," a track off one of his last albums "Hit N Run Phase One."
Fifty-nine years ago, Prince Rogers Nelson was born at Mount Sinai Hospital in Minneapolis. In the '80s Prince threw some big birthday bashes for himself, but later in his life he stopped celebrating his birthday. He talked about his birthday philosophy during an interview in 1999 on Dutch TV.
