I'm confused. She had a publisher? So she's written a book of her memoirs or a book about Prince?

It may be harsh, but am I wrong to think that it's doubtful that Prince would want her vocals on any more of his music?

this appears to be in the same photoshoot: www.apnews.com/9946e6f68e...187b217b56

** Mod Updated **

In interviews with the AP, Hoffs, Apollonia Kotero , Susannah Melvoin and Taja Sevelle explain the magic behind the songs Prince wrote for them years ago.

APOLLONIA 6, "SEX SHOOTER"

Like Susanna Hoffs, Apollonia Kotero of Apollonia 6 cried thinking back about Prince gifting her a song, but not because she didn't get the chance to thank him: She was able express her gratitude before he died in 2016.

"I got to thank him for picking me. I started crying. And I told him, I said, 'I never thanked you. I have to thank you because' — oh God, every time I say this I get like...," Kotero said, trailing off as she began to tear up.

"I said, 'Because you picked me, I was able to put food on the table for my family," she continued. "I was crying really hard. And then he responded ... 'You're making me cry.' I thanked him. I said, 'I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice' — and that's a lot for this Mexican girl."


Apollonia 6 was formed after Vanity (Denise Matthews) of Vanity 6 left the group, leaving open the role written for her in 1984′s "Purple Rain." Kotero stepped into the part and Prince formed Apollonia 6, also featuring former Vanity 6 members Brenda Bennett and Susan Moonsie.

Kotero's first recording with Prince was "Sex Shooter," which appeared on Apollonia 6′s 1984 self-titled debut album and was also performed in "Purple Rain."

"He played it for me with his vocals. Then he also played one with Vanity's vocals. He didn't really want me to focus on that. He kind of just let me to hear it, just for the sake of, 'This is what it was. We're going to make it different,'" Kotero recalled. "When I asked, 'How so?' He said, 'Well, there's a sensuality about you, it's not a blatant sexuality. I just nodded my head, 'OK.' I'm going to agree with him. He's the boss. That was the first time I'd heard it. I fell in love with it. I was honored. Are you kidding me? I couldn't stop pinching myself."


Kotero said Prince held a 30th anniversary party for her at Paisley Park in 2014 to celebrate the song, album and "Purple Rain." And though she's turning 60 in August, Kotero says she's still a sex shooter.

"If I think back about 'Sex Shooter' at my age, well, I'm still shooting love in your direction," she said. "I'm always going to be a sex shooter — always and forever and I hope it's on my epitaph."

Eventually every cloud runs out of rain.

Prince was planning an Apollonia 6 movie before he died??? I just find that extremely hard to believe. The women are 60 now. So, was it going to be “Apollonia 6 at the Shady Acres concert hall?? Sorry, but come on!! Prince wouldn’t even do a reunion show with The Revolution, yet he was ready to make an Apollonia 6 movie??

Prince was always known to make one off comments and offers, and given that he did reconcile with some of the "supporting players" from the Purple Rain era prior to his death, I don't find what Apollonia said to be that surprising.

A certain kind of mellow.

I don't buy much of what Apples has said about this. Perhaps they were in contact, but other than that, I just don't believe any of it. If I'm wrong, then I guess time will tell and I will own up to my mistake, but for now......No. By the way, I smell a book neutral

And these plans started with This Could Be Us song and her invite to paisley where Prince performed while she was on stage with him.

From https://blog.thecurrent.o...th-prince/

She previously described their meeting, which included a performance by Prince and 3RDEYEGIRL; now, she has shared additional details.

“On June 28th, 2014, at your home at Paisley Park, I told you when you love someone so much for so long, you become as one. As we have. I gave you a bejeweled gold crown charm I bought for you at Kensington Palace. […] We kissed. We both had tears. I leaned my head on your shoulder. You celebrated us that night. Our 30th Anniversary.”

After a performance that “made me feel like Charlie Bucket” in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, Apollonia writes, “We spoke about family, love, music, and the future. Deep discussions. How we are family. 33 years now. You wrote another song about us, you proudly tell me. You show me the meme ‘This Could Be Us.’ Your happy face lit up. I gushed as always. I kiss you again. The plans you share with me take my breath away. You are so gracious.”

Looks to me like they were in contact. I believe this short performance was even streamed on livestream at the time.

Sure, I said they could have been in touch, but I just don't buy all the other stuff and her silly comments online about his death. Perhaps I'm wrong and I can live with that, but as I said, I smell a book.

Right. She set up her future memoir in that IG post.

No doubt they remained friends and were back in touch the last couple years of his life, however, I just don’t see Prince discussing an A6 film/record - unless he was planning to involve everyone from the PR film as well - but that just seems far-fetched to me.

IIRC it was an instrumental version of Endorphinmachine.

.

There was also the payment he made to the three A6 members not long before he passed so maybe there is some truth in what she's saying

When I read about his anonymous payments to the A6 women I figured it was more about him wanting to gift them something extra - maybe due to a bit of guilt for not doing a second album back in ‘85.

The payment was not made to Apples because she thought it was a scam when P's people called her. If she was so close to P at that time why would she think it was a scam?

It’s very possible that she may not have known the person calling her from his camp. Prince did not “mix” friends/associates like that. Támar stated when she performed with Prince at the Brit awards in 2006 she did not know it was Wendy and Lisa on stage with her. Prince never introduced them.
*
Also, with the many elaborate scams out there it is very understandable why she would not give out her bank account information. I don’t think I would have either.

They were probably just honoring the non disclosure agreements they most likely all signed. People don't get paid without knowing why.
