Did P give her that ring??
Pretty.
Listening to the 2nd interview video I realized how famous PrinceVault and all of this is now. We are no longer special peeps with our own little secrets. The world will soon know Prince.

Today, Sheila E. posted the following:

"Today we remember. We remember the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr, and the legacy that lives on to this day. It is this very legacy and the work, tears and blood shed by so many others that have made it possible for me to even be able to write this today. What I am thankful for is the freedom to speak, to listen and be heard. I am a musician, I am a woman of color..."

I didn’t think so until I read they were engaged. I thought it was a garment ring (I have the same ring with a pink pear), but I think I was wrong and he did indeed put that jewel on her finger.

Wow! I guess when Prince was involved he gave proof of his engagements!

I wondered that as well when I first came across that pic. It looks like she was also wearing a band. I wonder what year that photo was taken? It looks to be from the late 80's.

Great piece.
I was always disappointed with her communicating about the music.

Outside of Erotic City, she never really talked about the background of recordings.
She should go album by album.

yes!! this would also shut up all the "haters" who act like she shoudl "sit down" etc. when Sheila is the closest and most knowledgable person still around who can tell us about Prince's music, especially pre 1990

I agree. I would love to hear more stories like this about the recording process of the songs and what was going on behing the scenes. That was fascinating what she said about 'Pop Life' That was the song that got me into Prince so that was really cool to know.

She was was interviewed by Andrea Swennson from The Current while in Minneapolis for her show at First Avenue on her birthday last month. I hope there is something in the works as well! Here is an article about her Birthday Bash at First Ave. www.twincitiesmedia.net/b...st-avenue/

She can definately talk more about Romance 1600 and Sheila E also anything she remembers about the 4th aborted album

This is the most revealing I EVER heard Sheila be about recording with Prince. Although I’m sure a lot of it is blurry to her. Which is understandable. Since she recorded so much with him. More than anybody! They were really musical soulmates. I’m sure Prince’s(r.i.p) transition cuts deep with her.
So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"
