Hello, Cat. Thank you for agreeing to do this Q&A session.

There is a small batch of photos of you and Prince chilling at the
side of a pickup truck. Even though you were most likely at a show,
you two looked like you were in your own little world. Where were
you and when?

Some videos that I have watched of different shows, I was ex-
hausted by Prince's and your energy from just watching!! It seemed
that you were able to keep up with him. I don't know how you
did it. Where did you get all that energy from?

Cat, my last question for you:: What is at least one thing you have
done for yourself to help you cope with all the negative things, the
untrue things, the crazy things that have come about since Prince's
passing?

No matter your age, pursue your dreams so that you will LIVE.

Hi Cat!

I have such fond memories of you with Prince and the Band during one of the peaks of his career. You clearly had a great chemistry together.


I guess I'll keep it simple. Did you and Prince stay in touch over the years? When was the last time you conversed?

Thanks!!!!

Hey lovely Cat!
After the LoveSexy tour was over why didn't you go on to do a solo deal with Paisley Park Records? In addition, what was your initial reaction when you found out that the Sign O' The Times tour was not going to the USA? In my last question is - well it is more like a comment/question. I love your performance (the entire show to be exact) with Prince during the extended version of a Beautiful Night at the New Year show at Paisley Park, what can you recall before that show and after that show that you can vividly remember? Thank you in advance for answering my questions.

Cat, I am sorry for your loss.

Loved you since Star Search!!!

What did Prince eat before or after a show for stamina.

Did he warm up like a typical dancer or more like most male athletes?

Thank you so much!!! Best!!

Hi Cat,

thanks for taking part of this, my question:

I heard that Bowie was also interested in hiring you for his Glass Spider Tour at the same time Prince asked you for his Sign "0"the Times tour. What made you pick Prince over Bowie?

Thanks

The Lovesexy tour was my first Prince live experience. I remember how active you all were on stage and it makes me tired thinking about it now. How grueling was the rehearsing? Did you get to play B-ball on stage each night? I remember an actual basketball hoop on stage when I saw you all in Maryland.

Hi Cat, thank you for this oppurtunity.

I wondered: dring the tours, was there place for improvisation on the dancing or was it the same routine every time?

Wishing you the best!

Hi Cat. What an honour this is. I'm curious- how did you guys come up with your dance moves? Did Prince have clear ideas or did u 'find' the moves in the rehearsal space? Greg

Dear Cat, please tell - what do u remember from the Glam Slam musicvideo shoot back in '88?

Such a good pop song, and, Lovesexy is my fave Prince-album, (among several others, though), wonderful tour in '88 and what a wonderful album, the screaming guitars, the many layers in the music, well I happen to love the whole album (Lovesexy), so please tell about it (Glam Slam?).

The Glam Slam musicvideo, I have so dear memories thinking about it, I saw this video on a small Black & White television screen - shown in rather high rotation in Europe, back then on MTV. I was young then, seeing u dancing with Prince in that video made a big impression on me.

Btw. also, dear Cat: later u made an appearance in the danish rock-artist Nikolaj Steen's video I believe the song was his only (minor) hit outside Denmark, and it was called "Angel", maybe if not too much, what do u remember about that, the song was a smash in Denmark, it was in 1991 (I believe?), and seeing u wow, right after your career with Prince had happened, that was so surprising, also a wonderful moment. Please tell a little how that co-operation came about, with danish singer, Nikolaj Steen? Today he is a well respected musician, and producer (I believe so), in Denmark that is.

Thanks, thedance.

video: "Angel" = Nikolaj Steen feat. Cat, 1991


^ please allow, cuz Cat is in it, but no Prince involvement.

Nice song (imo). cool

I know you left the Prince camp in 1989

I remember watching the Batdance video when it came out, and of course I'm looking for Cat, Sheila e etc

Where U still around during this period? Where you involved or were there things working/in the works with the Batman era before you left?

Hello Cat! I am obsessed with the mirrored heart wristbands. Do you have any amusing or particulalry interesting stories about these costume pieces?

The SOTT era is when I became taken by Prince (I was 10 years old). I'm glad you were his sidekick then, you will always be a favorite. Your performance in the SOTT film is LEGENDARY.

Hi cat

Thank you for your contributions to a beloved era in princes history. Your addition to the band seems serendipitous, as the on stage chemistry between you and prince was perfection, very playful, energetic, and friendly, with just the right amount of sexuality. You were such a big part of the show, but the visual experience in particular, which was just as important as the aural experience during that time period, I can not imagine it being any better. Thank you for all of that, I know it was work, but it must have been the most fun possible as well.

I am mildly obsessed with prince doing regular stuff, as there is very little information about the mundane stuff everyone does. Did you guys hang out during the rare down times you had while on tour, or at paisley? Did he slump down on the sofa, kick his shoes off and turn on the t.v.? Can you share some of the "normal people" stuff prince did, and you guys did together? Do you have any photos of prince during down time that you could share? I feel like I know him as the most gifted musician/performer of my life time, but not really as a person...for some reason this is what I think about the most...thank you again, I appreciate you taking the time to do this...

In hindsight, the Lovesexy shows were an extravaganza that we have not really seen since and no longer expect to considering the state of the music industry.

Q1. Is it true that Prince was not really into doing the Japanese leg in 1989 but did it anyway more for business? If so, it is incredible that a reluctant Prince could sound so damn good...many of the Japan shows are circulating in perfect soundboard so we know how amazing they were...

Q2. After "head", the band jammed and it seems they sort of improvised. I LOVE what they did in Nagoya and also love a lot of the jams from other show. Was that rehearesed or did he let the band loose?

Finally, I hope you guys just let out any shows you may have in your possesion. I say this b/c the estate is in such a mess, I don't think they will get to any of this in any timely manner. Let the fans enjoy.

Ms. Glover,

Thank you for your willingness to answer questions from the Org. Please accept my condolenscenes for the passing of Prince and the impact it has on you.

1.) During your time with Prince, around 1987-1988, Prince had a lot going on, more so, behind the public view (Crystal Ball, SOTT, The Black Album, Lovesexy), could you please elaborate on the environment at Paisley Park and Prince for that period?

2.) As with most fans, I am intrigued with the Vault, could you please describe the scope or volume of the Vault during your time with Prince? Are there any items, video, audio or photographic that you would like to share with the Org that may not be common knowledge?

3.) Lastly, without trying to get too personal. would you tell us a time of you and Prince that the general public is not aware of. We as fan see Prince in a different manner, not a "normal" person per se. It is nice to hear stories from those who were close to Prince share stories. In some ways, it helps with his passing.

Thank you for your conisideraton on the questions and for your work and contributions into Prince's music and artistry.

Cat, will always love you first of all,my question is:
There was a story floating around that you walked up to Prince some years after you stopped working with him and told him that no other dancer could replace you (something to that effect) and then just turned around and walked away. Is there any truth to this story? What was your relationship with him after 88 if any?

Hello Cat and thanks for taking your time out of your busy schedule for this. My question for you is, what does Prince smelled like? Also in the Glam Slam video, was Prince really covering his eyes with the bandana while he was dancing, and lastly did Prince ever had a choreographer?

Hi Cat. Another question on glam slam - yes we appear to be a forum who just can't get enough of it! Do you have any memories of any strange experiences or feelings or emotions or stories you connect with this song from you or those around you? Was Prince particularly in to it or as much as any other song and can you recall any thing he mentioned?


Next, Choreography! Did you choreograph together or did you lead and Prince follow? Did he have any go to moves you noticed (he always cool to me but back then did he have any you thought were not so hip and have to alter?!) and were there songs you heard that you had already choreographed in your minds eye before your feet even touched the dance floor? If so which ones?


Im fascinated by people's emotional response to music it's otherworldly don't you think? What songs from your (awesome) time with Prince stir particularly strong emotions for you then and now and why - and did you ever pick up on any that you felt Prince had a particular response to? Be it joy. Sadness. Spirituality..


Cat did you get to keep your costumes or any keep sakes I hope so!

Did Prince enjoy it on the road and hang out or was he a bit of a hermit on his days off? Did you ever see him sleep or was he really up for the time people say?

Did you ever get to borrow his clothes?!

Lastly, creepy question I know but it's interesting to me! what did Prince smell like back then! Everyone says lavender as a blanket answer but I wondered if that was the case then and if so was it strong and was it a pure essential oil smell or a more delicate spray or a vanilla lavender.. A lemon lavender.. You know what I mean!

All the best and thank you for the wonderful shows! You are a fabulous part of Prince history.

Hello Cat!

Can you share anything/elaborate any about the creation of "Koo Koo" both/either song and/or video? You and Sheila look like you had a blast making that video.

Thanks a million!
