    “They be working extra hours for us, and all that stuff!” That’s right, Baby Prince! You’d better speak up for those hardworking teachers!!! ✊🏽 OMG, I love this soooo much. ❤️❤️❤️ RIP Prince!

    The way he jumps up to get on camera is the cutest. His first answer reminds me of the Dick Clark interview. Quick, short and to the point. “Yup!” lol and the way he scrunches his nose and turns his head. Exactly what one would expect a young Prince to do. Amazing footage. Thank you for sharing.

    • G Dog says:

      I also thought of how painfully shy he was in that first Dick Clark interview. He wasn’t very smooth here at 11, even though he was obviously excited to be interviewed. I wonder if that led to the extra shyness? I have actually lived through this in a way. Never got used to public speaking after an early gaff…

      LOL I had the same reaction to his short response, “YUP”. I chuckled and thought, “not much changed in that department.” 😃

      @EriKAH , very, very interesting

    • EriKAH says:

      He has such a connection to April doesn’t he? The historian mentioned he attended that school in April of 1970. This story released in april…sometimes it snows in April. Its interesting.

    I saw this last night on WCCO, after the Grammys this was a amazing discovery!
    it’s good to see that Prince was so self-aware of life and his teachers, even at that young age.
    R.I.P. Prince you’re definitely a Twin Cities Icon 💜
