I am so sad. She was such a huge part of my teenage years and remained so special to me all througout my life. I am saddened by the loss of her but glad she is no longer suffering or in pain.

RIP, Denise. rose

It must be said, the hard sober truth when it comes to drug addiction, there is never anyone to blame but yourself. It's never a good time too hear it, but when the impact is the greatest it must be said. It wasn't the persona or the music or the sex that destroyed her kidneys, it was hard drugs. Crack cocaine. When you smoke crack cocaine, you don't live happily ever after. [Edited 2/15/16 21:41pm]

What an obnoxious and untrue statement. Many people who recovered from crack and other addictions have gone on to live healthy and happy lives. confused

So... why hasn't this been stickied on the main/news page?

I don't think it's an issue of "associate artist" because Judith Hill's album release is up there. So......?

Sad news indeed. And she was the same age as Prince. This must come as a shock to him. When someone of your own age dies, it hits you how fragile life really is. I wonder if Prince is going to say something about it at his piano concerts...

Prince dedicated his Melbourne show to Vanity, was visibly upset, and told many stories and mentioned that he was in love with her, apparently.

I am glad that Prince did this......

I was about to post this--I am so glad that Prince dedicated a show to Vanity. Despite what people say, he does care about people after all...

I feel so so sad about this news. I know prince loved vanity but why prince did you not reach out to her when she was in need? You brought Bobby z back into your life after his first major heart attack. (Or maybe he did afer all discretely without our knowledge) RIP Denise id love to hear the stories from the concert

I see it's been posted now. So whoever is responsible for that, it's decent for that acknowledgement.

The "featuring" system is a little buggy. Sometimes it takes a while for the actual item to show up on the front page.

R.I.P. BEAUTIFUL SOUL Denise Matthews a.k.a. Vanity. Though we are all sad at your passing, we take comfort knowing you are no longer suffering and at peace.

Was huge Vanity fan in the 80's and like most guys had big crush on her, loved her music with Vanity 6 & solo, enjoyed her movies too. For the last 20+ years of her life she dedicated her life to God, completely renounced her former life as Vanity. When she was very close to death in the early 90's, she prayed and when she was saved (not just physically but spiritually also), completely gave up her showbiz career. That was a powerful testimony and I'm sure she reached many people with it. Yes we all remember her as Vanity but I hope people won't forget what she devoted her time and the rest of her life to.

''So pray for me now for i am believing in complete healing of this body longing to be healed made whole my heart..I have my vision, i keep it close. I repent daily my sins, my faults and my shortcomings. He has brought me out of so many fires, oh so many, 23 years alive after the doctors pronounced i would be dead way back then 1992...I lift my head up high to the sky and do thank my Jesus that He has kept me thus far and even as much as this body would love to be with Him in Heaven right this minute... for He is my true love and King over my life...even as the Apostle Paul yearned also to be with Him in the Heavenly's ....As well David the King..we have our duty and i will serve my generation...i am happy to live and declare my testimonies with joy unspeakable believing for Him to pull me thru. I will endure until He comes for my soul.'' - Denise Matthews (in 2014)

Her book 'Blame It On Vanity' was privately published, I hope that possibly a major book publisher can republish it now beause it is well worth reading, her testimony of how she changed her life and left showbiz behind is a powerful one that many incl. celebrities today could learn from, also obviously a lot of interest to Prince fans.

Prince pays tribute to late girlfriend Vanity in first show on Australian solo tour

The late Vanity: Rest in peace

excerpt:

Someone dear to us has passed away, I’m gonna dedicate this song to her,” Prince said before playing a touching version of Little Red Corvette with a touch of Dirty Mind — songs from the era when they were together.

^ So glad Prince has spoken about her and paid tribute, he was obviously shaken by the news and loved her. I've no idea when they last talked or if they kept in touch sometimes, or if they met again after they broke up but I hope they did.

HERE IS DENISE DOING WHAT SHE LOVED TO DO - preach and talk about God, and give her testimony (her name is not in title of this video, so expect some have not seen it) :

Yeah, thanks for telling us this cuz I was hoping our guy would say something. I'm glad he did this also.....perhaps also the fam will need help with funeral expenses? She had a "gofundme" to help pay for medical expenses so you can imagine her family will be up against the wall while they are in mourning.

Her second solo album was da bomb! It's worth a listen, really.

And she was the loveliest woman I've ever seen. There's this TV interview in the 80's where she seems so totally high and vulnerable, u just want to hold her in your arms.

It's a beautiful thing Prince, Sheila, Jill and Morris paid her homage.

Fellow musician Sheila Econfirmed the news on Twitter Monday, just before the Grammy Awards began.

"SADDEN my FRIEND IN CHRIST gone 2day. Vanity, Denise Matthews. MISS YOU DEARLY. U ARE IN HIS ARMS NOW, NO Pain," she wrote, invoking Vanity's real name, Denise Katrina Matthews.
