Wow. This is some money grabbing, pathetic, sad shit. Susannah should be ashamed of herself.

I saw a video interview in the last year where she and Wendy said she is alive and well, in her 60s, and knows the song is about her.

I'm saying there has to be money to grab...

Just because things are set forth doesn't mean there is money following

or it should be called a money grab. It was her story, so I don't get why people are moaning

so let me get this straight. creating additional content off of something you created is money grubbing and pathetic sad shit, but building a song created out of content you didnt originate is awesome? thats asinine.

.

she can do whatever whatever the fuck she wants with it, its her creation.

Lmao I was waiting for this thread to pop up. She’s going to milk this til she can’t anymore. Does she need the money that bad? LOL I’m gonna ask this then I’ll leave it alone, why didn’t she do this before 2016? If it’s her song (she got a co-writing credit)

Also correction: It’s her story. NOT her SONG. So no it’s not her creation as she didn’t create shit. That’s Theo problem with a lot of Prince “fans”. Selective outrage. Y’all pick and choose when and who to be mad at. If y’all don’t think this is a money grab situation 9/10, you got a Melvoin/Coleman bias.

It is HER STORY that Prince turned into a song.

She's the author.

Prince asked here to write the story on paper, and he blended that into lyrics and a song.

He never knew Cynthia Rose.

She did.

She can do do that story whenever and how she wants.

The song is by Prince & Susdanah.

She is mentiones for the lyrics.

"The only difference being that the real Cynthia Rose talked about "starfish and pee-pee," which was changed to "starfish and coffee." Susannah Melvoin received a writing credit for being the originator of the story." according to PrinceVault.

IDGAF what she "created" if she doesn't have the PRINCE ESTATE'S permission to do this, she should get sued. PERIOD.
I don't argue with people about my opinions. Scram. I said what I said.

It is, and you could say the exact same thing about all the other associates selling their wares in the past 5 years, but do we really the giant slice of misogyny on top of it... every. single. time? These threads are an embarassment to this website - with the same slime crawling out from under their rocks the second they see these womens names pop up, it's pathetic. And it's not just them, there have been so many threads over the years saying the most vile things about Mayte and Mani amongst others. It's almost like there's a commonality between these women who certain people here rage at so vehemently the instant their names pop up.
