As thousands of people descend upon New Orleans this fourth of July weekend, I can’t help but to brew with envy that I am missing a Prince performance.

The Purple One is headlining the 2014 Essence Music Festival and I am gonna be here in Houston. Life kinda sucks right now.

To help me cope with my pain, I searched for a sliver of happiness on the world wide web and found this clip of Prince performing “Let’s Go Crazy”.

I don’t think I need to express how much I stand for the original Mr. Steal Your Bae, but I love Prince and he can do no wrong. He’s a musical genius and the one of the greatest to ever do it. Don’t agree with me? Debate your mom.

Watch this energy filled performance from February 2014 in Manchester, UK.

If you happen to be fortunate enough to see Prince in concert tomorrow, tag The Hive Society so I can be even more jealous.
