Happy 53rd Birthday Prince! Can you spot him in this photo of his high school basketball team?
In the purple one’s honor we asked our Twitter followers to tweet Prince facts @BuzzFeed. So this post (and this link to the final scene from Purple Rain) are dedicated to @alexwain, who informed us that Prince turned down a double hip replacement b/c he’s a Jehovah’s Witness (they can’t accept blood transfusions).
1. Prince is 53 years old.
2. Prince played on high high school basketball team.
