The song was for a play they were working on. After Prince died David revelved what the play was about. Prince told him the play was about a rock star with a female fan who stalked him and he told Davud this was loosely based on something that happened to him

The definition for womanizing just means engaging sex with multiple woman..thats p


Agreed, for me womanizer has a one sided derogatory feel.
But I agree that he did have sex with many women and that probably most
Of those women knew that.


Exactly. There's a difference between being a womanizer and a predator.

Interestingly, Prince said he wanted the poem to be "...about his relationship with a fan. Which became obsessive and weird."
It is not said there is more obsession on one party's part or the other's.

And he wanted it to be about lost love. Again, he didn't say who was feeling this; him or the fan - or both.

I will have to listen to the song again from the perspective of it being his own feelings of loss and obsession.

As with so many of his other songs, it could work either way, as I've been seeing lately.

Exactly, that's why I was asking for this version differs from what I know about the song.

Because all the gossip you read told you so, right? I’m amazaed at how many are so quick to believe whatever women say about him. As if there’s no incentive for any of these women to have people think Prince was flirting with them or hitting on them or whatever. This guy was supposedly so sick and in so much pain and addicted to painkillers yet still found a way to be banging women until the very end? Wow he really was Superman then. lol

"Told a made up story to a busy body of our only date..." lol that popped in my head after reading your comment. I just take one sided stories for what they are.. One sided.

Sorry but Mrs. White is not saying anything bad and that Honey Collective that came from Prince's own social media.

I am not sure why some of you choose to live in La La land were grown ass people do not have adult relationships.

I bet you have no trouble beliveing Mayte and her ever changing stories some of which make know sense at all.

I really don't take anybodys word for anything. I look at it as it being their perceived experience. I enjoy reading some stories that I come across. I enjoyed the parts of the book I read. I just skimmed through until she started talking about Prince. The parts that made me regret buying it was when she started to sound super bitter & petty. If someone doesn't have something nice to say about a human who's not here to defend his/herself then i'd rather that person not say anything at all.

I guess that is your interpretation. Mrs. White did not like being critized by her boss which is all he did after all they did work for him. He does get to decide what clothes they were on stage and he did not bomb them out in front of the whole crew and later he brought clothes for them which she liked.

He was not speaking to her concerning the tattoo so none of her business. He was not cheating on her so none of her business and the sisters never had a contract with him so Mrs. White quitting her job was her own bad decision and since they had no contract they knew they could be called to work at anytime or not called at all. If she knew they would not be able to work on a moment's notice they should not have got involved with him at all unless he was presenting a contract.

I notice you did not mention he hurt his leg and had to cancel the tour and Mrs. White seemed more concerned about her job status then they fact that the tour was canceled due to injury.

I noticed you did not mention the week he let the sisters stay in his home and in hotel that he paid for. Took them out on a shopping spree and paid them 5k each to sing on the Rainbow Children Album which probaly did not sell enought copies to cover what he paid them. Oh they got to be in a video with them as well.

These women literally came out of nowhere knocked on his door and got to out on the road with him. How often do you think that happens? Dude was by no means a perfect person or boss. He was a hard ass task master and obviously that mind set worked for him but will not work for everyone you chock it up to a work experience.

Considering Mrs. White decided to forgo hard work and get into the weed business I cannot take her complaining serirously.

All in all they had it good considering their naive mentality about the entertainment business.

As far as Mayte is concerned if you want to believe that women did nothing but right the whole time they were married belive what you like. eek

Like I said Mikki and her husband were big weed heads so I do not take her too serious with her self rightousness.

Mayte is discussing their child's death and making money off it and no matter what Prince did he never talked about the child's death to sell a project. It is beneth comtempt.

I love this song. Everything about it. Even the harps. His vocal range is amazing and the raw emotion of it unforgettable.

I love it too...it tears my heart out....

same way that somebodies somebody does...

Lonliness is something that everyone experiences at some time in their lives..

Prince IMO was lonely his whole life long becasue despite being surrounded by many,

he was on his own..

no one was like him, could meet him as an equal or fully understood him either...

I think that its only NOW we are getting some kind of real understanding of who he is

--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[/quote 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.

she is now married to larenz tate

He loved having beautiful talented women around him. For reasons we have discussed here many times. Inspiration etc.

As Antoine Fuqua, Director of Training Day, who got his start with TMBGITW, said, Prince had woman lating around PP like cats..lol..Shaq stated the same when he went out when All Star weekend was in MPLS

what is the honey collective?? is that when he was into women with natural hair/afro's. that seems to

be his deal for a while.

It was bunch of women he had hanging around. I believe La La Escarza was one of them. He put something about it on his Social Media.

That was Chelsea Rodgers , DJ Rashida etc LA chicks
