1. Thx, never saw that before.

2. Appolonia's Dad really creeped me out! eek - Looked he was about to "do something" with her right on camera! She had to yell.."it's my Dad!" eek Weird!

3. What was up with Sheila in the 80's?? She came off as a total "B," and was trying to hard to act like Prince when she finallly broke out. I found that unattractive and annoying. She was a successful session player and touring musician before she became Sheila E. I'm glad she grew out of that!

4. That was some funny shit at the end lol

5. I MISS THE 80's!!! bawl

YES to all the above! lol

Apollonia's dad looked so serious and like he was about to start sobbing at any moment, and he was definitely too...umm, intense lol... in how he was looking at her.

As for that guy with Sheila, I could be wrong but something is telling me that I'd read she was dating that guy at the time (but it was ages ago I would've read anything like that, but then again I'm old now and my memory isn't so great!)

Yep. I was there with my sister. It was wonderful!!!!!!

Wow!! I am so jealous! Must have been a real blast.. Back then MTV seem like they used to actually play and care about music, like the host actually sounds excited to be part of the event.. What a different era!

Honey, videos were still so new to everyone. I think everyone was just happy that MTV was covering the Purple Rain premiere. You have to remember, MTV basically played only rock acts until Michael and Prince broke through. Sad, but, so true.

Actually this was posted on my facebook account by someone i wont say hehe

St. Paul has tweeted it, but I found it via ?uestlove.

It's been online for six months and yet nobody seems to have mentioned it here. Odd.

Not on the org, but it has been on other Prince fansites.

Do a better search next time Bart. It's easy.

I think that was Stevie Nicks being escorted in - looked like they were running late and she wanted to get a seat before P got one! wink

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
