What an unlikely but sweet story!
According to TMZ, Lopez floated about
Tracy Morgan really loved Prince!
In an essay for Billboard Magazine, Trace recalled his favorite and most hilarious memories of the late icon. From "going gay" for the singer to bonding over the legend's music with his late dad, Morgan's message covered A LOT of feelings!
For those who don't know, Morgan spent some quality time with the 57-year-old throughout the years. The first time was when T.M. attended a wild party at the Prince's El Lay area home.
Speaking on the fun memory, the poppa recalled:
"About seven years ago, I went to a party at Prince's house in Los Angeles. We had to take a bus there – Jennifer Lopez, everybody was on this bus — and Prince performed with his band in the living room. The liquor was flowing and everybody was getting nice. At the end of the night, me and my boy Bradley were drunk. We had these two girls on the sofa and we were talking, joking, laughing. Prince and his wife came downstairs and they had on purple pajamas. He said, "Tracy, get the f– out!" As I walked out the door, I grabbed him by the back of the neck and I pulled him close to me. I noticed that mole on his face — he was so pretty, I turned gay for about five seconds — and I said, "My father loved 'When Doves Cry.' " And he said, "Yeah, yeah. Just get the f– out.'"
Ha! This anecdote is everything! We don't doubt a lot of people would have "turned gay" for the musician!
The funny man went on to add:
"Prince's music taught me how to suck titties! He taught me how to be gentle. Because of him, I once sucked a titty for an hour. At the end, it looked like a tater tot."
Oh man… there's so much too dissect in that comment. We're glad the Minnesota native was such a source of inspiration for Tracy!

Entertainers are banding together to push some backward governments into the 21st century!
This time, the state is Mississippi, and the law is the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act — yet another law designed to legalize and INCREASE discrimination against gays.
The Saturday Night Live alum was scheduled to perform in Tunica as part of his Picking Up The Pieces tour but abruptly cancelled on Tuesday, explaining in a press release:
This is much more powerful than we ever could have imagined.
Tracy stopped by SuperSoul Sunday on OWN over the weekend to talk about his eight-day coma, and ended up revealing he actually saw his father in heaven while he was unconscious!
Not only would that be enough to affect anyone, but he even said that his dad was his best friend, so seeing him 17 years after his death was a lot to deal with.
We simply have no words, but we're happy to see Tracy recuperating so strongly.

Want a play-by-play on the birth of Seth Meyers' baby? Yes?
Well that's good, because the late night host dedicated a nice portion of his Tuesday show to telling his audience about what EXACTLY went down when his son with wife Alexi came two weeks early! Awww!
The Saturday Night Live alum dished about how he and his pregnant wife jumped into the car of a shocked Uber driver (who thankfully kept his cool), and that Mrs. Meyers then proceeded to scream out the window while going through contractions.
Tracy Morgan has been through A LOT.
While we're so happy to see Tracy hitting up Saturday Night Live and embarking on a new comedy tour after his devastating car crash, it saddens us to know that he was once in so much emotional pain. In fact, the incident became so harrowing for the comedian admitted to Rolling Stone Magazine that he once considered suicide.
Morgan's struggle was extremely tough due to his mass of physical injuries and fear that he would lose his "funny".
The actor confided:
"I said, 'If my funny ever went away, I'd die.' And I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts – I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn't walk."
Wow. How heartbreaking.
Luckily for Tracy, he had the support of his wife Megan Wollover, children, and fans during this trying time. We don't even want to think about where Trace would be today if it weren't for his loving family!
Today, the comedian is looking towards the future and knows there's plenty he still needs to do here on earth:
"I still have shit here to do. It's gonna take more than 18 wheels for me to get out of here. I have to raise my girl, raise my wife, raise my family. Gotta keep my octopus alive. Gotta keep my sharks alive. Those are God's creatures! I'm needed!"
Ha! We love how Tracy's sense of humor was not affected one bit in the crash!
Congrats on your amazing recovery, Tracy!
