Rembert Explains: Prince Dominates the 1985 AMAs


Grantland’s Rembert Browne is 25 years old and did not experience the ’80s. To educate him from time to time, Bill Simmons shows him clips from YouTube in a series oddly titled “Rembert Explains.” Sometimes the clips aren’t even from the ’80s, they’re just insane. The clip they are watching here is of Prince’s domination of the 1985 American Music Awards. Price and The Revolution’s outfits, acceptance speeches, and gigantic Santa Claus bodyguard are not to be missed.
