In 2008, Coachella added Prince to its lineup two weeks prior to the festival, causing pandemonium in the music world—even Weekly music editor Nate Jackson did everything he could to sneak in that year. Prince’s performance lives on as one of the most profound Coachella moments. For one, the almost $400 ticket instantly became worth every penny for one. More importantly, he covered Radiohead’s “Creep,” which might go down as one of the best Radiohead covers EVER.
Prince’s death still stings. But his legacy lives on—not only through his music, but also by the die-hard fans paying homage to him, like the “Prince” bong by My Bud Vase. Majestic and purple, this bong encapsulates his royal, mysterious spirit. It not only rips powerfully like he did on guitar, but it hits smooth like his frontman swag.
But My Bud Vase takes the experience to the next level—these sweet bongs are also flower vases. So, unlike the bongs you used to have to hide when company (like your mother) came to your house, these bongs can stay out without it being obviously identifiable—a great thing because these vase-bongs are too beautiful to be hidden.
Prince is easily my new favorite smoking apparatus. No pipe has ever had me laughing in purple rain quite like this beauty. R.I.P.
