Our 5 Current Obsessions: Lobster Ice Cream, Prince’s Rare ‘Black Album’ & New Pride Fashions
While most of our current obsessions are things we’re presently lusting after, sometimes we just can’t stop thinking about something because it’s … odd. In this case, that would be lobster ice cream. We’ve got some more traditional items to obsess over, too, including a rare Prince album and some great ways to spice up your Pride wardrobe.
1. Original copy of The Black Album by Prince
An authentic copy of The Black Album by the legendary Prince just surfaced. His 16th studio album, and at the time his most controversial, it was pulled from the market by the artist himself due to its dark content. The original Black Album became legendary; one of the last five copies sold for $42,000. This newly discovered copy from Canada will surely ignite another bidding war. Bidding starts at $25K, discogs.com
