Why would she? Geez.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

This is really fab. I was a teenager when this all happened but never remember seeing it on TV. He was nervous too but really made an effort to reassure Lisa. Thank you for sharing. smile

clearly they should have had children lol

all jokes aside it's good to read she still thinks so fondly of her night out with Prince. P was a class act for making sure she felt comfortable

I can imagine management not being too happy with the premiere happening in such a small place when all was said and done, but I still find the whole thing very charming

I always felt that contest was rigged!!! But I'm glad she had fun and most importantly I glad she treasures the experience.

Beautiful, Loved and Blessed

Thank You Prince

This made me laugh. Just when I was about to punch my monitor with another "How come ___ hasn't commented???", you got me. Well played.

If I recall, she said she wasn't even a fan when she won the contest. Didn't like his music much at all, in fact.

Yes it was absolutely rigged to some extent. They interviewed her a bit before they told her that she won. They wanted someone the right age and living out in the boonies.

I was 16 at the time UTCM came out, and was living in Wyoming. I'm from Casper, and Sheridan is just north in the state. Couldn't believe someone from a po-dunk town in WY won the contest, but it was very exciting for everyone. I remember reading in the news that the banner they had hung in the town for the movie and welcoming Prince was actually lasso'd and stolen by someone in the night! lol
