my friend talks about her interaction with Vanity/deniese matthews

It's been time to get rid of Denise Matthews aka Vanity's book. I bought it from her when she was alive in 2012 of December. And I've been with holding the words she said to me good and really bad.
But now in July 13, 2018 I will tell you what Denise Matthews said to me and why I must get rid of her book. With a heavy heart I feel like I must unload. Please try not to be mad at her nor me. Are you ready? Here we go
I questioned the now the late and beautiful Denise Mathews why she had a more current picture of Prince with an evil huge looking jellyfish surrounding him. She said he is evil. He is not a good person. He is without Jesus and we must pray for him. (
Denise Matthews continued to sound manic and sounded like she was living in the past. I said,"Prince has changed." She then called my phone and said"Did you date him or something?" I said,"No. I said mind you I was younger and shouldn't have said what I said (2)"Denise you dated him over 30 years ago. Who you knew him to be is not who he all is now. She yelled,"We were soulmates! This is why I don't talk to Prince fans but I thought you were different!"(3) said,"Denise calm down. You're yelling at me. I am not trying to hurt you. He is a Jehovah's Witness. Just as I am. He is different." She said,"Well that religion doesn't believe in Jesus and all will burn in hell! So will Prince!" (4) said,"We do believe in Jesus. We pray through Jesus God's son to pray to Jesus. We try to follow Jesus example. I said," Prince is my spiritual Brother because he is a Jehovah's witness too. You are speaking ill of him and he tries to change." (5)I said Prince isn't playing all the music he use to play. When I saw him 2004 he wasn't playing certain songs. She screamed,"He does! He plays my music & other stuff too!" She was hearing me at all. Condemning Prince as if he should be perfect and he is not and is an evil man.(6)Denise and I got on the subject that isn't sleeping around. If he was what you do in the dark will come out in the light. She was screaming like a mad woman at this point,"He has many woman. I know he does!" (7 said,"It's been 30 yrs. You haven't been around him since the early 80s. You're speaking ill of my spiritual Brother. Denise said,"Well I didn't understand that until you explained it to me. But little girl you're you should show me respect like you show the Elders...She continued,"Little girl you should show me the same respect you show the Elders (Brothers who help with scriptural guidance the running of our congregation). She contiued I am an Elder in my church."I tried to tell her that the Elders are not on a pedestal. You speak to them like you speak to other Brothers and sisters. But anyway she continued to bash the JW religion and we never spoke again. So the book has to go..

Okay, stop. I'm sorry but is there a real source besides that this person is your friend? I highly doubt Denise would've said such things about Prince.........Not Denise......

EDIT FOR ADDING: I do believe that he hurt her emotionally and that it left a huge mark on her soul an honestly, she deserved a man who didn't play her like he did. But I doubt she would say such things about him.

And f this "Don't be mad at her", telling what she alleged said, like, your friend knows how easily folks believe shit they read on the internet about people. There will be people coming and hate on Denise and you didn't give a real evidence that this isn't just made up...... I'm sorry but this ain't fair.

But I can go here and claim: "Well my friend talked to XY and here's how it went." Everybody can claim this stuff......I'll doubt it until there's real evidence that this happened as stated here....

^^And am I the only one who thinks it's strange that this thread pops up right after people been asking about a book about Denise in another thread? As if to say: "Oh look, she was a bitch, are you sure you want to read about her?"

Maybe I'm just paranoid, but 1. I feel like she's not having much fans over here anyway and 2. I've only seen a few threads about Vanity and they got locked for some reasons.....

Yeah, but what your friend claimed was a rant. And I personally don't believe she would've said such things about his religion.

Didn't they keep in touch until 2012? Why would she if she felt this way about him?

Wow. I saw a video clip of Denise where she said something similar about Prince so I think it may be possible that she said those things. I remember Denise posting that photo on her IG and I wondered what she was trying to convey with it. I feel Denise was genuinely concerned for Prince and wanted to help him. I think that he had made an effort to change from his earlier days and I appreciated and admired him for that. I recently read an article from The Herald Sun about his Piano & Microphone shows in Australia and it mentioned that he was at a club while over there and the DJ played "Head" and Prince sent someone over to tell them to turn it off. They said that they told them that Prince didn't want to hear any songs of his with cursing or blasphemy.I think I remember the woman who posted this as being on Dr Funkenberry's Spreecasts a few times when he would talk with a few of the viewers. She struck me as being a hard core Prince fan.

^^The problem I have with this post is that it's just written down here without a link to another page or another credible evidence.......Everybody can write this down. And aren't the rules that you have to give a real source/evidence if you make a claim?

The link wasn't there when you first posted it, so I overlooked it.

Okay, I read what she wrote on Twitter, what I don't get is, why would Denise lose her shit without any real reason? Angelique only posts the snippets where Denise screamed at her, but I'd like to know the whole story to this. I still take it with a grain of salt.

And she says she didn't want to portray her in a bad light, but people who read this, maybe people who don't know her history with prince, will see her as crazy person. And this is not fair.

Right. Like, I mean we got that one phone interview or whatever where Denise really went over the top when talking about religion and people going to hell. But this person still can be lying about that encounter. And she ain't doing Denise a favour with that posting, that's all I'm saying, Denise isn't here to explain herself. If that really happened, why is she posting it right now? The only she'll acomplish with that is hate towards Denise and like I said before, she's not here to debunk it.

But she was still in his life later on.

Some people say she had mental issues and that she was somewhat fanatic in her missionary work. She did tell Prince she feared for his spirit (before he became JH) and she even went on friends' FB pages to lecture them and make them convert.

What nasty slanderous crap to post on Prince.org on the basis of some whack job Twitter friend who seems like she has a few issues with stability of her own. This whole tirade seems maliciously done in an attempt to disparage Denise's name and create attention for herself in the process. After all these years, this is when she decides to call out Denise to the public and throw away her book? Six years later, when she's dead and gone? I guess any whack whack can pull stories out of their behind and say whatever the hell they want now. Very sad.

CatB, Who are the 'some people' that say that Denise had mental issues - those that thought her evangelism was fanatical? People were saying the same crap about Prince when he was knocking on doors and trying to convert people to the JW religion. Denise said Jesus spoke to her on her death bed. I would be a little fanatic too if God spoke to me. It's easy to say someone has mental issues when you are ignorant and or apprehensive to their beliefs and faith.

What nasty slanderous crap to post on Prince.org on the basis of some whack job Twitter friend who seems like she has a few issues with stability of her own. This whole tirade seems maliciously done in an attempt to disparage Denise's name and create attention for herself in the process. After all these years, this is when she decides to call out Denise to the public and throw away her book? Six years later, when she's dead and gone? I guess any whack whack can pull stories out of their behind and say whatever the hell they want now. Very sad.



yeahthat I was FB friends with Evangelist Matthews until the very end for YEARS, and she NEVER disparaged Prince ever. Yes, they had a falling out, yes, back in the day she admittingly said he was dated more than one woman at a time, but other than that she said that he had FOUND Jesus and they were friends. So to even speak on her in any negative light after her death disgusts me.

It's been time to get rid of Denise Matthews aka Vanity's book. I bought it from her when she was alive in 2012 of December. And I've been with holding the words she said to me good and really bad.

But now in July 13, 2018 I will tell you what Denise Matthews said to me and why I must get rid of her book. With a heavy heart I feel like I must unload. Please try not to be mad at her nor me. Are you ready? Here we go

I questioned the now the late and beautiful Denise Mathews why she had a more current picture of Prince with an evil huge looking jellyfish surrounding him. She said he is evil. He is not a good person. He is without Jesus and we must pray for him. (

Denise Matthews continued to sound manic and sounded like she was living in the past. I said,"Prince has changed." She then called my phone and said"Did you date him or something?" I said,"No. I said mind you I was younger and shouldn't have said what I said (2)"Denise you dated him over 30 years ago. Who you knew him to be is not who he all is now. She yelled,"We were soulmates! This is why I don't talk to Prince fans but I thought you were different!"(3) said,"Denise calm down. You're yelling at me. I am not trying to hurt you. He is a Jehovah's Witness. Just as I am. He is different." She said,"Well that religion doesn't believe in Jesus and all will burn in hell! So will Prince!" (4) said,"We do believe in Jesus. We pray through Jesus God's son to pray to Jesus. We try to follow Jesus example. I said," Prince is my spiritual Brother because he is a Jehovah's witness too. You are speaking ill of him and he tries to change." (5)I said Prince isn't playing all the music he use to play. When I saw him 2004 he wasn't playing certain songs. She screamed,"He does! He plays my music & other stuff too!" She was hearing me at all. Condemning Prince as if he should be perfect and he is not and is an evil man.(6)Denise and I got on the subject that isn't sleeping around. If he was what you do in the dark will come out in the light. She was screaming like a mad woman at this point,"He has many woman. I know he does!" (7 said,"It's been 30 yrs. You haven't been around him since the early 80s. You're speaking ill of my spiritual Brother. Denise said,"Well I didn't understand that until you explained it to me. But little girl you're you should show me respect like you show the Elders...She continued,"Little girl you should show me the same respect you show the Elders (Brothers who help with scriptural guidance the running of our congregation). She contiued I am an Elder in my church."I tried to tell her that the Elders are not on a pedestal. You speak to them like you speak to other Brothers and sisters. But anyway she continued to bash the JW religion and we never spoke again. So the book has to go..

She was never night and day with me, she was extremely consistent. I got her, I understood her walk in Christ and repsected it. I even awkwardly mentioned stuff about kidney health with her in pm's and she was always graceful. I never had any head butting with her, I know some who did, and it was always on doctrine or religious beliefs, she was like any other evangelist serious about their relationship with God.

Denise could be lovely but she could also be very erratic when it came to religion or if a fan mentioned prince to her. I've talked to many people who've had wonderful and not so wonderful interactions with her. Regardless, i think vanity was amazing
