Everyone getting in for a piece of the purple pie.....pretty soon we will be getting memoirs from the doves that were in Paisley.

Even that would have more truth in it than Ms Berry's trash.


Can't agrue with you on that.

“leadline:

The common thread is profiting off of Prince’s passing…there are literally no checks and balances to what people say in the flood of memoirs and books coming out as Prince is not here to refute or confirm any of it.

We all want to hear things about Prince that we haven’t before, I would just suggest using a discerning eye when doing so. These people are not coming out with books because they love Prince; they are coming out with books because they need the money and know people will buy it.”


I totally agree

Hmmm, should be interesting but it all sounds rather calculating that she wrote it so soon after working with him. Perhaps P found out and that's why it seemed their collaboration seemed to end as suddenty as it began, or maybe they had a bust up and this is her side of what happened.

In fact there has been a lot of shameless cashing in so far and I have resisted most of it, it all feels a bit cynical.

He was tweeting his support for her when she was on The Voice in 2015 so seems that they were on decent terms then. I've wondered what had happened with her plans for the book since there had been no mention since her interview for Uncovering Prince. She said she was planning to release Milk and Honey along with it if I remember right.

2 songs "RHS" and "All Eye Want Is U" were sold part of an EP in very limited quantities this week under a different title "Not In The Vault, Vol. 1".

Sold out.

Regarding why M&H was shelved I listened to a podcast recently, can't remember which it was (Violet Reality maybe?) but IIRC she explained P had a falling out with Universal and M&H was collateral damage, and she didn't seem upset at Prince for it, she sort of said she chose to be loyal and side with him against the major even if it would cost her the record. It's all from memory so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

If I understood correctly, she also said she had realized that she owned the masters of the record and that she was planning to release it, but not as such, more like the tracks compiled in a bundle with other songs (most likely non-Prince songs). I sincerely hope she changes her mind about this and released M&H exactly as planned back in 2006. In that form, it would be a legitimate addition to Prince's canon, and the narrative they build with it back then should be preserved as such.

Even though Tamar owns the masters. It would be complicated with The Estate now that Prince(r.i.p) has gone on into another after life......

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"

If she owns the masters she's free to do whatever she pleases, that's the whole point of owning masters.

I saw that this was going to be available for one day only at the Electric Fetus and wondered what was going to be on it. I wish I could have gotten a copy.
