I like the song, but I thought it was really dumb having Jill sing it in Graffiti Bridge since it wasn't her voice on the song. It was Elisa's right?

Elisa Fiorillo indeed, strangely credited as "Elisa" only (i say strangely because she had a solo career of her own under her full name back then, it's a bit as if P had written "background vox by Kate" on "my Computer")

I apologize for every time I offended someone when debates got "heated". Love y'all yes

You gotta feel bad for Jill.She didn't get to perform a song in 'Purple Rain' and she didn't really get to perform a song in 'GB' either.She gets to lip-synch (briefly) the vocals of Elisa Fiorilla,but then Ingrid Chavez gets to lip-synch the rest of the song!! nuts Jill is a 'real singer' but never got the chance to showcase her skills in a Prince movie.

Exactly. It's kind of funny now that she seems to be one of the protege favorites, at least for me. I remember reading a magazine about her disgust with the whole Graffiti Bridge situation.

From my JJ thread http://prince.org/msg/5/344765

Jill Jones' role in the Graffiti Bridge movie was originally much larger than what she ended up playing. Kim Basinger was intended as the original lead in the movie, but when she and Prince parted company shortly before filming began, Prince simply combined Kim's and Jill's parts together and gave them to Ingred Chavez. Jill was then given a much smaller role as Prince's girlfriend.

While flying to Minneapolis to film the movie, Jill read the revamped script and began to tear it up and started to throw pages all around the cabin. Jill retired to the bathroom while her PA had to walk around the plane asking fellow passengers for pages of the script back.

Jill later said that if she had not been on the plane already she would have turned right round and returned home.

Jill did turn up in Minneapolis but she refused to talk to Prince on the set of Graffiti Bridge. In fact she refused to communicate with anyone except in French. Prince got upset and told Jill "If you don't smile and act better round here, then this is your replacement," and then showed Jill a photograph. Jill replied "Oh, an old girlfriend?" She stayed to complete the film but her relationship with Prince was never the same.
