yet another Prince book written by ex girlfriend

I'm wondering how many of Prince's ex's are or will be writing books??

I just saw a preorder for this one today:

Playboy Playmate, Actress, Author and Emmy winning producer, Devin Devasquez tells all in this intimate memoir.Compelling and extraordinary, this is the story of a girl who came from a poor and disadvantaged background, but who grew into a young lady in a setting most can only dream of.

Devin, like a butterfly, flitted in and out of the lives of some of the most powerful men on the planet as she became the woman she is today.

Candid and brave, Devasquez shares her journey from Playboy Playmate and Star Search winner to ultimately, Emmy award winning producer, wife and mom. And her time as the girlfriend of music icon, Prince.

Not surprised at all. Approximately one week after Prince's death, she publicly revealed her "secret romance" with Prince via People magazine. This is just the beginning folks!! neutral

I do like that outit she's wearing. Very P-esque.

I've always been in awe of people who can wear white without getting dirty.

I'm sure to spill something on myself. Too clumsy.

"Purple Reigned on Me" is a highly entertaining, tell-all book which enlightens the story of a girl who had an opportunity of a lifetime to meet Prince. You will follow her experiences and adventures throughout the entire book. "Purple Reigned on Me" teaches a few lessons along the way which encourages you to be the person you have always wanted so that no one will ever reign on you, your life, or your parade.

Ugh. Won't be buying this. Prince rarely if ever dished on the women in his life. It would be nice if the could have the same respect.

Enjoy your $20, girls. I'm only interested in reading Mayte's.

Mikki White was born in Tennessee to parents Rev. and Mrs. Clifford and Carolyn White. The family then relocated to Indiana where she has been there since.

She is a singer, writer, actress, artist, producer and plans on elevating these skills to a higher plateau.

Although she has an Urban R&B career on the rise, she makes it clear how important it is to have a spiritual relationship with her maker. She quotes, "I could not do anything without the Lord blessing me! He is my strength".

Prince is one of her many singing influences. The countless tours, shows, TV performances, bus traveling adventures, video appearances with him has made her realize how involved one must be to be at the top of her game. She is at the top of her game- be it body, mind, & spirit. She understands that it takes hard work to get where she belongs.

Mikki encourages anyone who listens to her music to remember that everything she writes was inspired and is dear to her heart. Her music has a multi-faceted appeal and will relate to a wide spectrum of listeners.

She is looking for die hard fans who love good music, and who believes that great music is more than a 'bomb' beat! It is about soul, passion, and being in tune with one's reality. This beautifully talented, soulful artist is about to do this in a big way! Stay tuned to what's next! She reminds everyone to continually to check her MY SPACE for information regarding upcoming events, her updated photo session, some song samples, and her own personal upcoming website!
The album will be entitled,"Mikki Time"…. And it is certainly Mikki TIME!

I am not surprised....... I think alot of them will write tell-all books and lets be blunt here.....some will only do it to bask in his limelight and attach themselves to his legacy......it will be interesting to see who are legit and who the opportunists are. This usually happens when a high profile person passes away, look at all the books about Marilyn Monroe and MJ.......most of them are attention seeking cash grabs. The only book I was really interested in paying for and reading about was Prince's memoirs.

Ok. I swear I'm not trying to be mean, but...I'm guessing they dated AWHILE ago.

Not that she's a bad looking gal, but she's currently not consistant with the age group P is known to be linked with romantically, or otherwise actually...Appollonia and SheilaE are the only exceptions I can think of being "more mature" women who stayed in his life over a looooong period of time.

It just didn't seem as if P kept women in his life after a certain "expiration date".

Jus sayin

There's a picture of them at the premeire-- it's on the org somewhere. I could find it and post it but I don't know how to post pictures. I also can see (by the cover of her book) that this will be a self published book on CreateSpace. I helped my mother put a book together on Create Space for a family reunion (story of the family thing she did) and this is one of their standard covers. That doesn't matter except, it's not like she got a book deal like Mayte did.

Prince gave her that outfit. It was his. He gave her a beautiful hand drawn demo album. He flew her around the world to his gigs. There is a thread with her press after he died. Said she was so in love with him but wanted to be exclusive...

I was ok with the book till I saw the title. If it's about her whole life then why use a Prince lyric? $$
