Thanks for sharing. I sometimes wonder how these artists feel when they only get a few minutes for an interview and most of the questions are about Prince.

My guess would be, "Man, look, my entire life is not about Prince, can you ask me something else?"

I've thought that but the truth is, (and I don't mean this in a nasty way) would anyone want to interview them if they didn't have the Prince connection? It's good publicity I guess.

imagine it would be different for each person. I know that sean lennon gets pissed when they keep asking about his dad. It's pretty understandable really.

It must be really hard. She is very gracious, probably understands that it will happen forever. Luckily, her show was sold out, so that's good.

Brand new boogie without the hero.

She might have had braces as a child, as her teeth are near perfect; however, I've never read that she has veneers. Even dating back to her first album, UnFresh (2009), she seems to have that same megawatt smile.

Dang, I was wondering the same too. She has a smile that is almost too perfect Lol!I don't know what it is about her I can't help but like her. She has this happy go lucky and I'm cute without even trying aura thing going on. I ordered her CD Superconducter from her website and she autographed it with a personal note!Who does that?! I loved listening to her music her music is really good. Like for real I am now a fan for the rest of my life!

Thanks Latin. I like her spirit. The fact that Prince was drawn to her in his final years is consistent with the view of his own growth. This woman could probably hold her own with him in terms of humor and intellect, and she had her own artistic strivings as well. No sex toy was she wink .

As far as the teeth comments, interesting the commercial before the segment was for teeth inplants. Was she a product placement lol ?

Not to mention, Prince also probably admired her songwriting ability, as well. With regard to her teeth, I could be wrong, but I think Andy is simply the beneficiary of big, strong African teeth.

In a recent DrFunk podcast with Marcus Anderson they discussed Andy's talent as a songwriter and DrFunkenberry said Prince talked about it all the time-so sounds like he was pretty impressed.

I watched this interview again and for someone who allegedly was one of his last lovers/girlfriends I didn't sense a lot of emotion from her. I know it's been a year but still... When local media here interviewed Kim Berry during Celebration week she broke down at the end of the interview. Sheila E. did too during her interview with Katie Couric. Just something odd to me. Also I find it odd that Andy hasn't been part of any tributes. She didn't play at the official tribute concert last October. She wasn't part of the Celebration events even though she was in Minneapolis at the Dakota during that week. It's just odd to me how disconnected she seems to be. But maybe that's by choice?

I have to partly agree with you, rogifan. But one thing I noticed is that Andy grieves/expresses her emotions privately or either when it hits her very hard. Out of the blue, she'll talk about it on social media by posting how she feels. She's done this three times so far (that I can think of) where she expresses that she's feeling down over losing someone and grieving. Also, about the tribute thing... I'm not sure. Maybe she just isn't ready or what, IDK.
Hope this makes sense.

Rogifan, perhaps Andy is staying away from all the drama as her way of coping with P's untimely demise. It cannot be easy for a young lady of her age to experience such a loss so early in her life. She disclosed that she cries. Let's not be too hard on her. It must be overwhelming for her to deal with the loss of such an icon. Here is what she said in a recent interview:

Q. Prince was such an influence on you, and now you’re doing all this great stuff. Do you ever get sad that he’s not seeing this?


A. Oh yeah, I was crying in my tour bus the other day. It is sad, because I feel like all this cool stuff is happening for me, and something he really loved was me playing acoustically and singing. “When you do that, that’s you.” When he would say that, I wasn’t ready to hear it then. It was one of those moments, when it was like “I don’t want to hear this right now. I want my big band. I want the horns. We’re doing funk right now.”


When I first met him, I was playing guitar and singing. That’s how he knew me. Through our journey together, I learned about big bands and playing with horns and how to arrange lots of instruments. He was always that constant reminder, “Play guitar and sing. It’s beautiful when you do that.” That’s one of those memories I was reminded of after losing him. I wasn’t ready when he said it. Then I thought, “I need to just go back to beginning.”

I think, at times, Andy is still very emotional when discussing Prince. I also think she is naturally good-natured, so she is just being herself. Remember, for the first few months, Andy was visibly distraught. She smiled through her Music Mondays, but her sadness was palpable. Not to mention the change in her appearance. I think chopping her hair off was directly related to P's passing. And, since his transition, she's almost always dressed in black, the color of mourning. In another nod to P, she often wears the black fedora that Prince was wearing, along with Andy's clothes and boots he wore because his luggage was lost, during their Le Grand Journal performance in Paris. Lastly, I can only imagine if Andy were crying during interviews about Prince. Some folks would probably tear her apart and accuse her of theatrics and attention-grabbing. She can't win.

P. S. She quietly, without fanfare, canceled her tour date on April 21. I'm sure that is not accidental. Andy is a class act.

Andy Allo talked about Prince in two recent interviews and paid tribute to him. She is just mourning him in her own way. I think she has been very respectful and classy.

Even though, she did end by saying she's not sure, I was kinda surprised to hear her first thoughts on releasing the music in the vault.
