Prince's Ashes Put On Display At Paisley Park


(Classic Rock) Prince's ashes have been put on display at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota. An urn containing the late rock icon's remains sits in the front atrium of the 65,000-square-foot complex, which opened its doors last week for fans to visit and pay tribute to the late performer.

The urn was designed by his sister Tyka Nelson and nephew President Nelson to resemble a miniature Paisley Park. The decision to exhibit his ashes has sparked controversy among fans.

Christine Schraml of Plymouth tells local news site Twin Cities: "I wasn't expecting that, and at first it was a little upsetting. But knowing how he kept his home based here and how he was proud to be from Minnesota, it felt good that he was home."

Twitter user Eric LaValle comments: "Prince's ashes have been horrifyingly placed in a Paisley Park shaped urn at the entrance of Paisley Park. This is not a joke." Read more here.
