You "heard?" Opposed to just searching for it, which takes what... 4 seconds? Who told you it was on YouTube?

If you have a problem with me, text me. If you don't have my number, you don't know me well enough to have a problem with me.

Okay maybe I might have seen it in passing. I'm always afraid of mentioning youtube around here because I can feel Prince's spirit side eying me.

YouTube stuff generally gets taken down when spoken of around here anyway, so it's usually for the best.

Still upset I never grabbed HD "Te Amo Corazon". The estate demands you only enjoy their VCD mpeg quality version in glorious 240p.

That's is not a thing, which still begs the question...

I think that Manuela's influence was more the fan orientation with public soundchecks and fanclub.


I remember when she was a creepy groupie posting on a.m.p and she vowed to do whatever it takes to marry Prince. So she weazled her way into Mayte's inner circle and everything went from there.

That's a little hyperbolic, lol. She barely posted there and it wasn't quite that explicit and desperate.

I was actually there the night they met in Toronto...when she was called up on stage...actually kept in touch for a few years following and then lost contact. I regret losing contact...i was young an foolish, and didn't know how to act back then smile

Anyway, my view is that she was not a performer and had no wish to do so. The girl was a university student when Prince met her. She may have started working the merch counter during his L4OA tour but she quickly moved onto charitable endeavours on his behalf. There isn't one bad thing you acn say about her. She has kept quiet following his passing. She's never really uttered any words about him that could be misconstrued. She has obviously gone on to become a philanthropist herself so, to me, she's carried on in a very dignified manner. At his core, I believe Prince was similar and probably valued this and her more than most actually know.

If I could, I would love to have a conversations with her today. She has kids, I do too.....she invited my wife and I to an aftershow once and we got to go upstairs and hang out....some of my most cherished memories.

Uh, well there was a big topic on there she started about hoiw to go abput and work at Paisley Park and get Prince's romantic attention. That was creepy enough for me.
Imagine everyone's surprise when she actually became Mayte's assistnet or whatever and when she posted how she was now 1 step closer to becoming Wife #2.

If what Joey coco is saying is true she started as a fan Prince called on stage and kept in touch.

I think the brain fills in blanks in memory to suit the current view of a person because Manuela wasn't really a big deal the very few times she posted to amp. In top of that, nobody even drew the connection until many many years later. This trope that she was a desperate fan is, at best, not true and, at worst, kinda dickish. She was also quite young at the time. She just took the job that was offered to her, as Mayte's assistant, because Prince liked to keep the pretty ladies close and assistant is all they could do for him if they weren't performers or artists of some sort (like Randee, being a photographer).

Either way some would say it’s impressive ingenuity to manoeuvre herself from a fan on a message board asking about boots, into his inner circle then become his wife.

Yeah it's absolutely evident she had motivation and cleverness to back up her ambitions. She is kind of the dream that so many fans wish they were and even envisioned being.

What's creepy about that? I would be thrilled if beautiful women posted online that they want to get close to me so that can attract my romantic attention. Do you find it creepy because Prince was married at the time?

Didn't he hit Halle Berry, or just cheat on her? I remember it being nasty somewhere.

She only had a handful of posts. I suspect you're being a little exaggerated with this description. I'm surprised nobody has linked her posts here yet. They really aren't nearly as weird as some of you are making them out to be.

Well, her topics about clothing Prince would like to catch his eye and whatnot on Housequake had her banned and I wasn't the only one online who thought she was creepy.
But no matter it's all in the past, Prince is dead, Mani learned her lesson not to fuck with Prince and has come and gon without much fanfare.

Did she come across as unhinged ? It's interesting to hear from someone who was there in real time.

Truth be told, Mani aside, for someone so paranoid/cautious, I found Prince to be extremely naive to embark in a relationship with a fan who used to post on forums. He talked to Tavis Smiley about creepy fans who showed up at his doorstep, he should have known better but oh well it's all in the past.
