Beyoncé has decided to pay homage to the one and only Prince in a new book that is being released by his close friend,yAfshin Shahidi, Yara Shahidi’s father of Blackish.. Beyonce writes: “Truth be told, the word ‘icon’ only scratches the surface of what Prince was and what he remains to me,” Queen Bey writes in the forthcoming book’s foreword.
According to Entertainment Weekly:
Shahidi was Prince’s friend for 20 years and photographer for 10, and Prince: A Private View — due out Oct. 17 — features photos and captions that reflect that relationship. The images range from intimate to candid to staged, and many of them have never been seen before. Shahidi was also the only photographer to shoot Prince’s 3121 private parties in Los Angeles.
