Just finished listening to the whole thing...GREAT, classy and insightful interview. Probably one of the best P related interviews I've heard in a while.

The title should have read: Apollonia asserts she wrote many Prince songs, introduced him to glam and Marilyn Monroe, insists she was the love of his life (in a non-romantic way), and declined the part of Laura Charles in the Last Dragon that she was never offered. Convinced Prince wanted to revamp Apollonia 6, and in her words knowing he was very sick went to Coachella without checking on her friend. She also announces that she's going to do exactly what she trashed others for: writing a book about Prince.
She has a pattern of inventing stories after people have passed: Prince, Vanity and JFK Jr.

You forgot the part where her "audition" for Prince included meeting him, then getting dressed in her disco finest for a trip with him to First Avenue where he announced to her "Vanity is here." as a set-up, and the 100 times Chick told her during the night, "You know, the Kid likes you a lot", sigh...bless her heart. Oh, you should also add to that she essentailly wrote nearly a third of Sheila E's Glamourous life album because it's all based on her, it was her idea that Sheila (the woman who previously played with George Duke & Marvin Gaye ) should have drum solos..and her additional musical accolades include sitting in onstage with Bebel Gilberto because she knows her Portuguese lyrics phonetically. Gurhrl.....

By the way, Mama wants the children to know that it is SHE who isrepsonsible for for bringing glamour to Minneaolpis and to Prince. She "styled" the women sisters of the collective including the idea of Sheila wearing minks, SHE was selected by Prince and his management, SHE was part of the apex of his career, and in pop culture we have Lucy & Desi, Sonny & Cher, and Prince & Appolonia.

Whew, Chile! That was something.

Yes it was. She’s always articulate and poised when doing interviews. Her mother passed away back in December so maybe this interview was cathartic for her.
