Purple Reigned on me by Mikki White

Purple Reigned on Me: Former Prince Background Singer Tells Story of Life and Inspiration Hardcover –

https://www.amazon.com/Purple-Reigned-Me-Background-Inspiration/dp/1463446217


So I read this book and two things really stuck out.

1) Mrs. White and her sisters did some singing on the Rainbow Children and You Make My Sunshine.

The sisters had a gig in Minneapolis for the All Star game and the gig was cancelled they decided to go up to Minneapolis to see if they might run into Prince or someone who knew him.

They went to Paisley Park and just knocked on the door and were invited in and had a chance to hang out and actually perform that day for a party he was having. They stayed all night and he then let them stay at this house. Two of the sisters stayed in his bedroom.

He left them in his house and found a hotel for them. He then paid for a shopping spree for all of them. They finally got around to signing on some songs and he paid them 5k each.

I was amazed that he would just let some strange chicks into his studio and home. I thought is was much too trusting.

2) Mrs. White and her sisters went out on tour with Prince but the tour was cut short because she said Prince was told by a doctor to not do the splits or any dancing and he reinjured his leg. Which means he had injured it from an earlier time. Mrs. White said the rest of the tour was cancelled and his staff told her Prince needed a operation and the next time she saw Prince he was walking with a cane.

Looking at Prince Vault this is the canceled "Celebration tour"

Not really. I just put the two most important parts of the book on the org. Mikki spends a lot of time complaining about the music industry in general and apparently had some unrealistic ideas about the industry. She would also later get into trouble with her husband for selling weed so listening to her self-rightousness can be a bit much.

I forgot to mention that she said M2 was nice when P was around and quite fake when he was not and that Prince would send M2 to Toronto and he had a few young ladies hanging around when she was gone so trouble with that marriage was going to happen right from the beginning

She got into a lot of trouble with that drug dealing. Apparently, it was just laying everywhere in their house and there was quite a bit of it. She was a school principal I believe before she got caught.

Do you believe she was in the know-how like she says or making some assumptions based on what she saw from a distance. Do you believe that he just let her and her sisters just move into his house and they were privy to that much private info. He was rather private, was he not? It sounds like reasonable assumptions were made at times, but assumptions nonetheless.

I am not saying they are lying, I am saying they are making assumption.I guess I just never understood how people could really know who Prince was shagging or not. Even Mayte was not entirely certain everything he was up to and she was his wife. Musicians working with him are not necessarily going to see what goes on behind closed doors. Unless he walked up to Milenia and said "Hey, I am going to send Manuela away so I can bang Tamar" then how would they know what exactly his relationship with young proteges etc was like. Plus what I also don't understand is why Prince thinks sending Manuela to their Toronto home would necessarily protect him from word getting back to her. Plus the Toronto home was bought early in their marriage so does it count like the Spain mansion that supposedly was there as a place to dump off a wifehe wanted to disconnect from.

--Mikki did not say he was shagging anyone but she pointed out he had Geneva hanging around and that Geneva told her she was being paid to just hang around. She also said no one talked about these visitors he had come by when M2 was gone. Remember Jill Jones they were going to still see each other after he told her he was engaged to Susannah Melvoin. He even flew Jill out to see him on the road and soon everybody in the camp knew. She did say that M2 did cook really good vegetarian dishes so it appears she was already a vegetarian prior to hooking up with Prince.

So they performed with him on the Hit N Run Tour (end of June 2001) and he started touring again in March 2002. The rumors of hip surgery (confirmed by the autopsy scar?) took place in 2004 didn't it? He took all of 2005 off although he did perform in some concerts but did no tours.

I am not sure if they were married at the time she kept refering to her as his girlfriend so I assume that is how Prince introduced her. They might have been engaged but she said he let two of them sleep in his bed and the other two sisters went to another guest room.

He went to another guest room telling them he needed to leave before he got into trouble.

biggrin He was too much

Oh God, I die. If I'd known it was that easy, I would have shown up myself and knocked on the door at PP. At least given it a shot... wink

Well that is what Geneva told her but Geneva does turn up in a few videos and she is in the New Years Eve concert in the background dancing around so he did eventrually get some work out of her.

Not surprising at all. In the song "Love" from 3121 album he comes right out and says that she smiles at his friends but really hates them.

Prince was hitting it with other women almost right up to their wedding. I remember one story, and I might have some details wrong, so if someone remembers this, correct me. The gist was that Prince was seen parading women into the bar/club of a hotel in Hawaii just two weeks before the wedding. Mani was alerted on her way up to her room by a couple in the elevator who had just seen him. She seemed indifferent about the whole thing.

--Because he probaly told her he was going to see other women since she with him via an affair this could not have been a news flash. In Sheila E's book she said he told her he was going to have sex everyday he just wanted to have open relationships. The people who did the conference on him in England a few months ago reached out to Bria who told them she broke up with him because he was not serious about being a JW if he was always running around he was struggling with being a Christian.

Unfortunately it seemed prince was still practicing his womanizing ways, just from listening to maya washington interview where she said she saw women coming in and out of paisley.

Not surprising at all. In the song "Love" from 3121 album he comes right out and says that she smiles at his friends but really hates them.

Prince was hitting it with other women almost right up to their wedding. I remember one story, and I might have some details wrong, so if someone remembers this, correct me. The gist was that Prince was seen parading women into the bar/club of a hotel in Hawaii just two weeks before the wedding. Mani was alerted on her way up to her room by a couple in the elevator who had just seen him. She seemed indifferent about the whole thing.

--Because he probaly told her he was going to see other women since she with him via an affair this could not have been a news flash. In Sheila E's book she said he told her he was going to have sex everyday he just wanted to have open relationships. The people who did the conference on him in England a few months ago reached out to Bria who told them she broke up with him because he was not serious about being a JW if he was always running around he was struggling with being a Christian.

It was not newsflash but then why bother getting married? Business deal? Cleaned up mage in exchange for lavish stepford wife lifestyle (true golddigger style)? Perhaps when it came to marriage, love had nothing to do with it. IDK.

Interesting info from the conference. Prince and Bria's relationship seemed like a mystery and then poof she disappeared one day. Next thing you know she's getting married. Some thought they were really together and others didn't.

--Mikki did not say he was shagging anyone but she pointed out he had Geneva hanging around and that Geneva told her she was being paid to just hang around. She also said no one talked about these visitors he had come by when M2 was gone. Remember Jill Jones they were going to still see each other after he told her he was engaged to Susannah Melvoin. He even flew Jill out to see him on the road and soon everybody in the camp knew. She did say that M2 did cook really good vegetarian dishes so it appears she was already a vegetarian prior to hooking up with Prince.
He was paying people to just hang around? eek sad bawl

It is sad but he could do that; it appears as if he did not surround himself with authentic people.

Mani could have been fooling him. Being one way when she was around him and another when he was not around.

According to what was told to people at the conference they were together but it appears she got tired of his crap and married someone else. I think Prince just wanted to have a main women that would be his fall back women and still run around. Sometimes you can be in love with the idea of being married but not the person you are married to.

Unfortunately it seemed prince was still practicing his womanizing ways, just from listening to maya washington interview where she said she saw women coming in and out of paisley.
