Prince's posthumous memoir, The Beautiful Ones, hit bookstores on Tuesday. Co-written by Dan Piepenbring, it contains several fascinating tidbits--including a nasty note Prince wrote about the sorry state of the modern music industry. “We need to tell them that they keep trying to ram Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran down our throats and we don’t like it no matter how many times they play it," the artist wrote in a letter that was found in his home after his 2016 death.
