Purple Rain Synchromysticism?

A prophetic scene from 'Purple Rain'?
I was watching Purple Rain today with the subtitles on and came across the "life is a bitch" monkey scene and realized that Prince passed away in the Chinese Year of the Monkey.
Then I see this screen shot below where his girlfriend in the movie refers to Prince as King Kong.
Kind of puts a different spin on that saying,  
"life's a bitch ... and then you die".
On another synchronistic Pop Cultural Year of the Monkey note, the King of Pop's daughter Paris Jackson got a tattoo of her late father's 'Dangerous' album cover placed on her forearm about a month after her father's great singing rival Prince passed away and put up an Instagram of her tattoo, which ironically has a monkey being crowned and this happens in the Year of the Monkey when the monkey is king of the Chinese zodiac for the year.

I'll bet Mick Jagger's not looking forward to the next Chinese New Year, it being the Year of the Rooster in 2017;-)

The year of the rooster?!

The Bridge with Kira featuring Jake Kotze
I was watching Prince's movie 'Graffiti BRIDGE' starring and directed by himself and also starring his band 'The Revolution' (Update: The Revolution were in his last two movies, but not this one ... my bad) last night and thought it was funny seeing this post about Jake being on 'The Bridge' at REVOLUTION Radio
Plus hearing Jake talk about the number 42 I thought it was synchy that 'Graffiti BRIDGE' has a rating of 4.2 at it's IMDB page.
"Graffiti Bridge is the unofficial sequel to Purple Rain
In this movie, The Kid and Morris Day are still competitors and each runs a club of his own. 
They make a bet about who writes the best song and the Kid's club is on the line. 
But the Kid has become a brooding character who writes letters to his dead father and ponders spirituality. 
Under the Graffiti Bridge in the park, he meets Aura, an angel-like poet with whom he falls in love. 
Once again, Morris tries to steal his girl, and in the end, she dies in a tragic accident. 
But not in vain, she has given the Kid his edge back, and Morris gives in and lets him keep the club after hearing the moving ballad the Kid composed." .
Also with all the talk about the number 13 in The Bridge podcast I thought it was synchy that Morris Day (Prince's cousin) was born on December 13, 1957 and has 13 acting credits on his IMDB page.
Morris was born on the 13th day of the 12th month of the year, too.
"Despite media hype of it being the sequel to the massively successful Purple Rain, it was a commercial and critical failure and was included on several Worst-of-1990 movie lists. 
Graffiti Bridge currently holds a 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 23 reviews"
