Diamonds & Pearls:Was Misty Copeland dancing for Prince In The D&P Video?

I was just looking at the Diamonds & Pearls video an hour ago. I couldn't help but wonder about the dancing ballerina girl dressed in white dancing for Prince in the Diamonds & Pearls video, is that Misty Copeland?

I'm pretty sure Misty was still a kid when that video came out. lol

It's not Misty, she would only have been 10 years old when this was made.

It's not Mayte either, as was often rumoured.

Why would that ever even be a rumor? You can see the woman's face on the damn screen.

I hate people.

I don't get it either, not that i care much who it is....hehe.

I'm just quoting The Vault book.

But now that we are on the subject, does anyone know who it is?

Maybe it's her mother?

Misty could possibly have been one of the kids in that video, though.

Misty actually did production work on Come and The Gold Experience, so its possible. Pretty sure Misty was who "Shy" was written about.

Really? I guess I'm thinking she's a lot younger than she actually is, then.

(I don't know anything about her, to be honest. Just that she's a ballet dancer and people are speculating about her being Prince's new flame.)

'Shy?' So she shot a boy twice in the head?

eek

Misty is GANGSTA!

lol

Misty didn't start dancing till she was 12 or 13.

I've been following her career for years. She started ballet late and ended up staying with her ballet teacher, then there was a custody battle between the teacher and her mom - there was an episode of the now-defunct Leeza Gibbons talk show, which is where I first heard of her and she was interviewed. Eventually she was hired for the corps of ABT, then was promoted to soloist. Some years back, 20/20 did a segment on her as well.

And again, she wasn't even dancing yet at that point. So how could she be ballet dancing in a Prince video, like two or three years before she even started ballet in the first place. lol

I swear if Prince wasn't such a dick about posting videos of his real greatness, we'd have much better things to discuss than this kind of foolishness. sigh
