Little harsh maybe?

I was just listening to Future Baby Mama and some of the lyrics are "None of them got what it takes, to be a future baby mama" the "none of them" are his ex-lovers, of course.

Isn't that a little harsh on Mayte considering past events?

Maybe I'm a softie, I don't know..

Nothing to do with Mayte, that's an assumption. He loved her very much.

How does it not have anything to do with her when he's addressing his ex lovers?

I think he means more that they are exactly what they are...ex- spouses or partners...none of them have panned out or lasted and it's not that he didn't love or care for them but none of them were ultimately the right person for him or one of them would still be with him. wink

if he's calling this one just a "future baby mama" and not wife, then I'm guessing he's not expecting this one to pan out either. but he's just trying to get into her pants like all the others, and this one might hit the jackpot and get pregnant with his baby lol

really, it only takes fertility and a willingness to spread her legs biggrin


i really don't think he understands the connotations of the phrase "baby mama" if he thinks this is a romantic come-on lol

lol The song actually does sound like he is trying to use the phrase in a more romantic sense.

I'm not sure of the exact meaning of "baby mama" but if it's basically a "single mother...never been wed" then I'd fit under that title.

Every song Prince sings does not have to be about his life, many guys could apply the song to themselves while singing it/ What the hell is wrong with people?? mad A girl could change the words and be singing it to her guy.

I didn't think it meant him. The 1st time I heard it, I thought of a guy meeting a girl and thinking, "U have the qualities that make me want to raise children with U. U'd be a good companion and mother". Nothing more.
I thought the title was a little [over-used phrase] 'ghetto', but that's what I heard... shrug

Not all lyrics are autobiographical... Just because a song Prince writes speaks about "past lovers", doesn't mean it refers to his.

In fact, I would say that most "love" or relationship songs do not refer to an actual person, but are creative takes on an emotion.

I often see posts entitled things like, "Who is "Guitar" about"?", when it's probably about no one.

But obviously she didn't have what it takes to be a future baby mama.

Ummm, not "didn't" but "doesn't"! Considering the fact that they are no longer together and she went to Tommy Lee after Prince!

Hell, I think my odds are better at having Prince's baby than Mayte's is at this point!

I'll have to side with you on that. lol

Which, of course, leads back to the fact that Prince needs to get out around real people once in a while. Fame and the Hollywood Fishbowl can skew anyone's perceptions if they're in there long enough, and let's face it, Prince's grip on reality can be tenuous to begin with.
