Susannah sharing Prince's clothes in this one photo from a concert

Housequake posted this great pic of Prince and Susannah wearing the same outfit. I've never seen her pic before. Love it.

Who else wore his clothes?

Andy?

Denise?

Mayté?

The close ones, methinks.

It's Susannah, not Wendy. Susannah said as much on her Twitt... a bit ago.

I don't really care where the lyric came from. I'm not here to analyze where a song lyric came from. It's about the beauty of the photo.

Good for her, and good for you.

It´s a fan forum, a discussion board...people discuss things here, you´re the one who started the thread using that lyric before you changed it. Get off your high horse.

Not on a high horse, pal. It's just that sometimes, more often than not, Prince fans are way too extra about the simpliest of shit. "Oh, well that's not where that lyric came from! It's HERE and I have sources!" Oh who the fuck cares?

We're talking about a pair of pants and a jacket for fuck's sake. Pants, people! PANTS! And a nice broche, because as Olympia Dukakis said, "the only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize."

I think for someone who often criticizes Bart you are sometimes quite rude yourself. It wasn´t my intention to get into the details of where that lyric came from or when it was written. I just happen to like that line a lot and it reminded me of that other picture of Vanity wearing Prince´s jacket...the picture I posted before I deleted it again because I lost interest in your thread due to your tone. I didn´t even really claim that the lyric was inspired by Vanity since that line was probably written before he even met her, and nor do I really care about it as much as you think I do.

-

Keep in mind that you originally used that line "I used to let you wear all my clothes" as a thread title, so it´s not that unusual that I came up with a meme of Vanity and Prince, with Vanity wearing his jacket, using that very same line. No big deal, really. Just a little exchange of Prince trivia on a Prince message board, from fan to fan, or so I thought, and no criticism of what you posted by any stretch of the imagination, nor a desire to take your thread into a negative direction or discussion whatsoever. I like that pic you posted, I like that era, I like that outfit and I also was about to post a pic of Prince wearing Wendy´s jacket and maybe have a little chit-chat on how it was possible for Susannah to wear Prince´s tight and tiny outfits but you know what? Forget about it.

But I´m really not blaming you. It´s my fault that I thought it would be a good idea to participate on your thread.

It´s ironic that you are such a staunch fighter for social justice issues, which is something I admire, yet some orgers who I strongly disagree with politically are much better, and more social when it comes to communication and decent human interaction without having to resort to expletives. It´s experiences like this that make me want to spend less and less time on the org these days.

I think it´s best for me to just avoid you and your threads and posts from now on.

Bruh, clearly from the 2nd paragraph of my response, I just made it all into a big joke. It's fine, let's move on. Let's get back to seein' who got in Prince's pants, literally and figuratively. lol lol

Yeah, I can't tell if they're overly big, or if it's just her hair and the angle, etc. At first, I thought "baggy." Then... the pants are taut, the sleeves don't look much different on her than him. Might be her hair, actually, and that damn headbandscaftswathoffabric.

Well, he was a man after all, with a muscular build, a tiny man in stature, but still a man. smile

Now tat's a good question.

Could it be, that,

when he bought a home for both of them,

she stayed at home, and decorated it,

and he was the outdoor star.

Sure he had The Family project for her,

and that seemed to be just a quick betweenie.

-

How come he never wrote an album for her alone ?

That is what I question myself.

Or an album for Lisa, written by Prince ?

Or for the Melvoin Twins...why not?

Or the three friends, Wendy, susannah and Lisa ?

A serious trio girl band ?

(Makes me considder another thing, how come Matt fink never went for a solo album ?)

All valid questions even if I never would have asked most of them. I get why he didn't see Susannah as a star, and we can guess control or using them on every other protege record explains some other questions, but I still can't figure out where she's one of the only ones we never saw a casual photo with, or entering an awards show with.

Kind of interesting, but it seems like there are some very specific people where photos with them just never made the rounds publicly, or he avoided it. But Susannah seems odd given he almost married her and the time period.

BIG TALL WALL?

He didn't see her as a star?

He was with Susan Moonsie and Jill Jones too, but we only see 1 casual photo of him with her. And 1 with Jill(while with Vanity) I think. I thought about periods where we saw more/less photos of Prince and after 1988 the photography turned up times 10. But prior to that it was a lot of hit n miss periods of lack of photos in general. Not a lot of 'casual' Prince photos from 1987. Actually outside of the tour, not a lot even.

Allen B was a main photographer from Dirty Mind - 1999. He was around during the Purple Rain - Parade years, but he wasn't photographing Prince mainly. I wish he did. He did tease some photos from that period. So I do hope he comes out with another book before someone else tries to steal his photos.

But outside of Allen, you really don't see a lot of 'casual' out in about photos of Prince like I would have liked during the 1978-1987 period. Until Allen B came out with his book of photos there were a lot of images we just did not know existed.

Prince Jill Jones Bobby Z and Big Chick attended that 1983 James Brown Show, but outside of Prince actually getting on stage there are NO photos of him.
There are NO photos from the 1985 Masquerade Ball Birthday show


Until recently we've probably seen 5 photos of Prince with the Time members which is mostly with Morris Day.

she bought him a cane that was clear, I believe he used it during the Parade era.
But it wasn't because of hip issues, Prince was a fan of Charlie Chaplin. And was channelling Charlie during the UTCM movie, Parade era

Miles Davis discusses Prince

Prince has a,

has James Brown

...his father took him 2 C James Brown,

when he was young, he got on stage and danced with him,

he has that and Jimi Hendrix and Marvin Gaye,

...

that's 4 things,

James brown Jimi Hendrix Marvin Gaye

and he combines all that all the time that's what he is,

His concept on the stage is like Charlie Chaplin, if you look at him you'll see, U know? you can tell

...

but Prince's concept is James Brown and Jimi Hendrix and Charlie Chaplin

and can't you mess with that ...

I was going to bring up Jill too, but I think the difference there is she was more of a jump off and the height difference. Not an almost Wifey.

It would seem to me some of it was a conscious, but it's just about who was given photo access like you say. It seemed more specific, since there are some photos. I just wonder why Susannah wasn't by his side during awards shows or entering events. Nothng leaked or was ever shot. Aside from that one photo where he's trailing behind with the cane.

Chaplin seems pretty subtle of an influence, but he did do that one ball of his heel turna lot, and definitely something in his timing, and doing thing like mugging at the audience before gesturing to his band.
