Prince was such a Joni Mitchell fanboy

I wondered what the tory was on this photo from Afshin’s book. On a recent Funkenberry podcast he says Prince didn’t want anyone smoking in or near his houses but he once walked in on Joni Mitchell smoking and she put her hands up like ‘OK you caught me’. But Prince was such a fanboy he didn’t admonish her he just told her he wanted her to be healthy and he was worried for her. I love this photo because it does look like he’s jokingly telling her to take it outside. lol Anyone know who the other woman in the photo is?

If you look closely, that arm doing the pointing, in the black silk / satin doesn't actually seem to belong to Prince, no? It looks like it's attached to a shoulder in the foreground, whose head we can't see...Or am I looking at it wrongly?

No, you are looking at it right. Besides, all it takes is a quick glance at the hand. Not Prince's. wink cool

That too, lol!

And, the picture above - Prince in his flip flops and pink socks!?! Only he could get away with it, right?

Have all of these photos been previously released online by Afshin Shahidi??? If not, should they be copied and posted on the Org?? I know I heard him discuss the one with the cigarette in an interview, but that is different from releasing the actual photo.

Google Prince & Joni Mitchell. Both of these are on the photos page.

Thanks, poppys! I also see that Joni Mitchell has both photos on her Twitter.

I love the story Joni told that she first saw Prince in the front row of her show in Minneapolis in 1974 (?), and that he was a little guy with big eyes staring at her through the performance. And then, maybe 6 years later or whatever, he started getting famous and she recognized him as the same guy from her concert.

Of course, they are published in the book. That's the point; however, I had not seen these of Joni Mitchell on Afshin's social media. I asked because so many people have begun copying the photos from the book and posting them online, with no thought of spoiling it for those who have not yet seen the book. Not to mention, making it possible for some to "drink the milk without buying the cow."

Joni is sooo cool.

Esperanza Spalding´s "Emily´s D+ Evolution" has a strong Joni vibe. Great album

She did sing with Prince & the Revolution on the Parade tour a few times and I believe on the Purple Rain tour
