2009 she and her family clearly found out what category she was in. We did rip her apart though; in fact in the years that past I have often wondered why I was angry with his choice of Bria as the protege of 2009. It was my guess that her family and her friends( and maybe even she) came to her defense on the org and HouseQuake and THAT only made it worse. I truly think Prince"s fantasy was someone that could be on stage with him as well as in his personal life. Also someone who could kinda stand up to him. A releationship like Barrack and Michelle Obama, where she is a strong character in her own right. Anyway, this is my guess. BUT, and this is a big but, he never stopped shopping. There seeemed to always be a Liza from Panama or a Tamar also getting his attention.


But anyway, when the man died, Bria Valente's name never ever came up.

That era seemed chaotic. Personally their relationship was sorta triggering to me personally because it felt annoying that such a deep, artist, a man who's beautiful work touched my heart and got me through a rough childhood had such shallow taste in women. Visually she just appeared the epitome on phoniness and that just got on my nerves. Ofcourse that is just my perception and how it looked, which ofcourse probably is just my own projection you know, she might be a great person who loved him genuinely ofcourse, you really can't tell someone' s energy/soul from a picture but like a part of me was kinda disappointed in him like, damn is he not as deep as I thought? Is that all in my imagination? His life and his choice though, I will always love that dude.

yeahthat



I think you hit it!!


I wanted Prince to have someone that was as much a "MODEL" as Iman or Jerry Hall or Christy Brinkly or Kate Moss. In my eyes Prince was an A lister even when he disapeared for a while from PEOPLE magazine.


I was also in retail and the # of girls that work at places like Macy's, Nordstrom, and Neimans who are tall, slender and have a modeling portfolio is endless. They are great at finding clothes that make themselves look good but never build up a clientel because they really don't care about that. They don't care to make anybody else look good anyway. There part time job was to get their boyfriend and male "friends" to help them use up their employee discount. They seemed busy doing nothing. I wonder what their life is like when they are older and no longer invited to parties and restaurant opening to be eye candy.


I am sure it was envy on my part. I had to always proove that I knew what I was talking about when it came to fashion.




Girl, same situation when I used to be a dancer, most of the girls were like that too, it was a total culture...I sometimes wonder about the girls I used to know too...I think model beauty like Bria's distorts reality but in a way it isn't all their fault either you know, people , especially guys all want something from them and the exploitation becomes a feedback loop .

Came across some great videos yesterday including Prince on Jay Leno singing “Somewhere Here On Earth”. I had seen it before of course, but hadn’t noticed that Bria was the girl sitting at the bar next to P at the beginning.
She stayed there during the whole video and her silhouette was in the background of Prince the entire song.
I think prince like to have his lady with him.

I think the reason why she was in the background, is the same concept of the official video. The object of the song was somewhere in the background, not in the limelight, she was 'Somewhere' on Earth. And if u notice in the video, she was always a reflection, and they were never in the same instance of time and place.
I take this magnetic force of a man to be my lover 💙
