GREAT STORIES Told by a Childhood Girlfriend of Prince!!

These were told this weekend, I think as part of the Mural Unveiling celebration!!



Enjoy!

Thank you Vanessa for being an A #1 Fam and capturing these very special stories - and to Stephanie for sharing them with us!

I'd love to see the rest of what Stephanie has kept!

Apparently not a public post. Has anyone vetted the veracity of these tales, because neitehr the name Stephanie or Vanessa was memorable to Prince. Why? Because he didn't bother to mention them in his memoir. But suddenly, these women come out now? Like that Mi-Ling "Red Corvette" woman?

Vanessa Bartholomew is the character that Kirstie Alley played on the Love Symbol album and videos.

Don't you have any discernment??

You need "proof"??

Vanessa is a Fam who didnt know Prince - so it's obvious you didnt look at the content!

And Stephanie was probably one of several girls Prince chased around in elementary and early Jr HS. Why would he speak about her?! biggrin

She's got all those papers and it's obvious to the trained ear and mind that they're honest! And they're Prince's handwriting!

Andre (whom she's still in touch with) or any other old school chum could easily negate these stories!
Just enjoy the stories, schmuck!

Yes, I wish I could see ALL the papers she has and read all the school papers Prince had written!!

Yes, I am aware of that.
There are hundreds of fans out there adopting Prince-like nyms. It doesn't make it any more legit.

As I stated above, the content is NOT visible to everyone -- and I do not have ESP.

His memoir was never finished, so there is a lot of information missing because it was never written. Also, how many famous people talk about their elementary school classmates? How many classmates did famous people have that THEY don't recall? How often have you hear Michael Jackson or Madonna talk about their crushes in elementary school? How many classmates have YOU forgotten who might remember you? There is nothing about her story that seems unlikely and it's very unlikely that she faked the drawing, valentine, and story. That's only the first half of the video. Good grief. Prince not mentioning someone in a barely-started memoir is hardly evidence that he didn't know them. Critical thinking skills are essential. You should get some books on it and get to work.

His memoir carries up through high school and he names many names.
Maybe you should read it.
Did he forget some? Probably....but thnk! They were not as important as they believe they were.

I have enjoyed listening to this over and over!

Thanks so much again to Vanessa and the great group of people with her (your background comments made this all special too!) and of course, to Dear Stephanie.
