(AP Photo/Andres Kudacki) (Newser) – The death of Prince on Thursday means we may never get to hear his fascinating life story in his own inimitable words. TMZ reports the pop superstar had started work on a memoir just last month and had finished about 50 pages. The memoir, announced by Prince at a concert, was tentatively titled The Beautiful Ones. "We're starting from the beginning from my first memory, and hopefully we can go all the way up to the Super Bowl," Mashable quotes Prince as saying while announcing the book. It was scheduled to be released next year. Neither representatives of Prince nor publisher Random House would comment on the status or future of the memoir, according to the International Business Times.
