Cat - thank you SO much for doing this...I hope it's as cathartic for you as it is for us, hearing about your dealings with this remarkable man! Forgive me if my questions are intrusive - I understand if you don't wish to answer them and hope you won't be offended:
.

1) Did your relationship with Prince extend beyond the professional / friendship? And if so, do you think this was a pattern - and a problem - for him, and those involved?
.

2) Was the ending of your AMAZING (and it really was!!) partnership friendly / acrimonious? It seemed so brief and so intense, I can't help but wonder!
.

3) You have, I believe, expressed consternation over the manner of Prince's demise on social media...What do YOU think happened / led up to it all? I still can't quite believe he has passed, he was such a bright flame in this world - but were you as confounded as us, or (as Tyka has said of herself) were you anticipating it in some way..? Please, please, if you can, shed some light on it for us because, selfishly, I continue to find it incredibly difficult to process... sad
.

Again - thank you for taking the time to do this, and being willing to open yourself up in this way. I for one am truly thankful!

Hi Cat

You were right at the centre of Prince's most creative period (IMO). Changes in direction must have been happening on a nearly daily basis!

Did his changes in direction ever cause confusion?

For example, was The Black Album really pulled at the last minute, which must have felt crazy, or do you think it was planned as part of the whole "Lovesexy experience" !?

What were your favourite tracks? Any unreleased?

Thanks for your time!!

Hello Cat

Was the style/look/design already set to go for the Black album?

Did Prince and the band have a look designed?

Hey Cat..meowwww! - The most important question is how are you these day's?..are you well again?

Also what does the future hold for you?

Here's a few Prince Q's 4 U....

1] Were you there on the night Bowie came to visit P.Park?...if so what can you share?

2] What's your 1 most amazing memory of being in the Purple Orbit?

3] What light can you shed on P's massive change of heart away from the Black album to the pure spirituality of LoveSexy...we've read the rumours but the truth would be appreciated.

I have too many Q's so will stop now!

Cat,

Thanks so much for agreeing to do this. I have two questions for you:

1.) Regarding performance: I've observed in many interviews that gifted performers often note that their minds are typically blank or rather in a state of flow or just acting as an active channel of energy when performing. Was this the case for you? I ask because your dancing (an example being the performance of 'If I Had A Harem' @ Dortmund in 1988) was so responsive and complimentary to the music that I wonder if you were in a state of flow or just really attentive to what was happening musically?

2.) Regarding the recording of Lovesexy and Lovesexy as an accomplishment: What was that period of creativity like? As far as the atmosphere surrounding the creation of the record as well as the mood Prince was in while creating it? Was he hyper-focussed in the construction of the record or was the music just coming to him? Also, what did he think of or how did he personally rate the album once it was finished? What did you and the others around him at that time think of it?

Thanks again and all the best!

Oh gosh - ANOTHER question - this time on behalf of my son, whose name begins with G.
.
He always gets a wee bit ticked-off when listening to 'Alphabet Street' because the G is missing from your rap at the end. PLEEEEEEEEASE can you provide me with an explanation to pass on to him? He is driving me nuts about it! lol

Hey Cat - thank u so much 4 doing this! My question is about the cover photo 4 the Sign "O" The Times single. A lot of people actually thought it was Prince holding the guitar. I personally got a chuckle out of that, but I'm curious what your reaction was. biggrin

Hi Cat,

My best wishes to you, I hope you are well. Thank you for agreeing to answer questions here. I loved the SoTT and Lovesexy era; thank you for your work and contributions, I loved your dancing, choreography and energy. A few questions, mostly relating to Lovesexy:

..

1) Did Prince verbally explain the overall concept / story of the Lovesexy stage show to you? And how the different sections of the show would link together e.g. shooting the basketball, bob george, supercalifragisexy, riding on the car etc? Or was it more that he visually showed you?

..

2) Did you have any input into the design and layout of the Lovesexy stage (given that it might affect what choreography was possible)?

..

3) I love the end of the Lovesexy show with the white thunderbird car. I've always wondered how difficult it was for the three of you to stay balanced on the car, singing and waving while it moved on its track? Were there sensors to stop the car if one of you fell or slipped under it?

..

4) During the SoTT and Lovesexy tours, did you have any difficulty seeing the stage when dancing and moving during the shows given the lighting was sometimes dark?

..

5) I love the Dortmund show and was so excited when it was broadcast live across Europe. Did Prince say anything particular in preparation for that show? How did it feel knowing that you were performing live on television across Europe?

..

6) Lastly, I love the Lovesexy album, and the way the voice changes during Lovesexy track, blending what sounds like a female voice, Prince's normal voice and his sped-up voice. Did you speak/sing on the Lovesexy track? Do you know if there are any other vocalists on that track?

..

Much love. Thank you for your time.

Hi Cat. I remember what a great dancer you were on Star Search. Is it true you & Madonna were supposed to star in Graffiti Bridge? How do you feel about people who were once in P's life that are now seemingly profiting from his death? And finally, I read that you were dealing with some serious health issues. Are you doing better now?

Hi Cat. Prince often spoke about being a Gemini, expressing a dual nature. Equally, he loved to present that Prince mystique side to his fans and the media.

My question is in Paisley Park, rehearsals etc did Prince feel comfortable to be himself and let people into his true self and be vulnerable, or did he have to play the enigma, the boss, too often?

Prince laid some clues about bullying and childhood trauma with his family splitting up and him leaving home. I always thought that his defense may have been to build "a big tall wall" around his feelings so he could create a front that showed he was in complete control 24/7 despite a lot of his songs hinting at his complete emotional palate.

Thank you for doing this. You are wonderful and an indelible part of Prince history and why we enjoy your part in his classic era.

Hi Cat,

Thanks for taking questions from fans.

*How much do you know about unreleased material from 1987-1989 that resides in the Paisley Park vault? Is there any unreleased material in the Paisley Park vault that you regard as stellar? I understand that you may not be able to go in great detail.

*What are your favourite Prince songs or albums, and why are these your favourites?

~ Michelle

Hi Cat,

How do you think the music in the vault should be released?

Who has the knowledge and skill to best release the music in the vault?

What do you think should be done with Paisley Park?

I love you! I saw you perform with Prince in Mpls to kick off the Lovesexy tour. You are the best!

Hi Ms. Glover,

I've seen racy looking photos from the tours. Was it ever awkward rehersing those moves? Also what was a typical rehersal schedule like?

Choreographers don't typically get the say-so in estate matters of a dead rock star, whether real estate or films. Why do you think Paisley Park should not be visited by people who loved him the most? Prince clearly had a plan for PP once he died, so why would your ideas about it be more valid, especially having only worked with him for roughly two years, almost thirty years ago?

Hi cat! During the lovesexy tour you stopped in Philly. After the show, you and prince went to a club called the black banana. It was nearly empty; you guys were upstairs. A few people came in and started dancing. I think there were adult movies playing on the monitors in FF motion. You and prince got up to leave. You walked down the steps and a girl followed both of you. You got in the van, but prince waited a second and looked at the girl. That girl was me.

Do you remember any of that?

Hi Cat, I can't believe you are answering questions from the fans, thank you for doing this.

The SOTT and Lovesexy tours that your were part of, were on a different level, they were incredible spectacles.

There was a spirituality that appeared to flow through Prince especially with the Lovesexy tour, do you remember the Dortmund show that was filmed and The Cross? I don't think I've seen a musical moment that was more powerful, Prince seemed almost to be a preacher with that blistering guitar solo and his look to the heavens.

Love, sex and religion always seemed such a powerful muse for him, but I think this tour was a culmination of pretty much everything he had done before, the zenith of him as an artist, together with the band.

What do you think Prince was feeling during that tour and was there a feeling within the band that this was something special?

Hi Cat, thank you for agreeing to take questions, I hope you are well and send you love. Thank you for your work - you brought so much.

I recall a few years ago there was talk of you working on your own versions of alphabet street, it's one of my favourite P songs and I love your rap - I was wondering if you did have a version to release and when we might hear it.

Big loves, take care. Mikey

Hi Cat


During 1989 and 1990 you were spending time in London working with Bomb the Bass and hanging out at the Wag club. Do you have any memories from that time you would like to share? Where in London did you stay?

Thank you
Baby, you're a star.
