Has anyone seen Prince's interview on The View 1999?

Can't post a link here, but type in "The View | Prince Interview 1999". Scroll down to 6th result where it sayss "The View | Prince Interview", by Rogers Nelson, 148k views, posted 1 year ago, runs for 7:21 mins.

What do you think of this interview? I found it interesting how he said he seeks "spiritual intimacy" with others than his wife. He still seemed in love with Mayte. He liked Lisa Ling's hair.

It seemed like word salad and nonsense back then. They divorced, end of.

I found it interesting. I didn't get the sense that he was still in love with Mayte at all. Loved her clearly, but, as they indicated, he'd had the marriage annulled before the interview. And looking back now I'm pretty sure they were on the outs (add to that, Mayte was not part of the Rave pay per-view-performance at all).

Anyway, I feel the same way about this interview that I do the RAVE album. He seems very somber and melancholy. Nice to see him make the rounds on TV but you can tell he's in a different place, in transition.

I saw it when it happened. It was really short. He did not stay long.

How long do u wanna be loved? Is forever enough, is forever enough?

I believe that he and Mayte were done by this point. She was living in Spain, and he was in MN. The story is that he and Manuela had begun an affair at some point in 1998 or 1999.

Also, if you listen to Prince singing his cover of Red House - which he changes to Purple House - during the Rave 2000 NYE show you hear him sing "my Puerto Rican beauty don't live here anymore". Then it sounds like he says, "that's okay...I still got her baby...maybe not" eek

So, they were over by the end of 1999.

He says “Habibi” not “Her Baby”. Habibi is the Purple symbol guitars name.

Hmmm, but then why does he then say “maybe not” after the “Habibi” comment?? That would make no sense.
