Yes. The scene where Prince rides down the street and sees his mother sitting on the side of the curb. You can see a palm tree in that scene and there ain't no palm trees in Minni lol

Because Prince wrote a song probably intended for his band, probably intended for the erotic barn sex scene called If the Kid Can't Make U Come

And Prince wanted to fill the movie up with tibits of hints from other songs

Yeah his apartment did look shitty lol

And Apollonia's motel room was cheesy

nobody seemed to want to take anyone home

not even the Kid

I just had a question about why would it be Morris' song instead of The Kid's.

Jason always says he's gonna ask Morris why he's singing that song

If Billy wanted something "commercial, something that would work every night" wouldn't it make more sense for him to let Dez's group go?

the Apollonia character was innocent, the Vanity character would have jumped on him claws slashing

To those sayin' 'why did appolonia think darling nikki was about her?', I think the whole point was that the song wasn't about her - 'twas about some other woman he'd had and she got jealous, which was what The Kid wanted and why he sang it?? BUT, how'd they do his solo after he'd walked off stage? Other ? for me is, what the heck were all those coloured jars in da's room that the Kid smashed up? What was in them?? Also agree with whoever said Mountainair band woulda been the obvious to go. That made me laugh quietly to self when I saw it in work smile Great film all in all though, unprecedented at its time, as with most things Prince xx

How is it anything but a tragic ending that the movie ends with two women stuck in abusive relationships with immoral men?

The world is a comedy for those who think and a tragedy for those who feel.

I thought prince did walk in on wendy and lisa and the band working on their own tunes .. then they broke into lets go crazy to please him. I think it is suggested that the tape prince rewound a few times to get the chord may have had a full work up of the song and prince wrote his words around the structure of the song on the tape already. Therefore .. implied is that they rehearse their own stuff without prince .. and prince had access to a full work up of the song .. so imediately upon Prince announcing that it was a wendy lisa song they knew what he wanted to play.

I know that I am completely wrong for what I am about to write, but I can't believe that you actually wrote something coherent and, more amazingly to me, that I agree with it. This is a very good explanation. Damn, one of us is gonna fall over and die!

Someone I once knew said that he saw Appleonia(?) sitting outside a trailer and she said they were filming a Prince movie. This was in England. That's my question.

Were me and my friends from Mississippi the only people pissed off that Prince had the nerve to destroy the preserves. Didn't he know how much work that took? His mama should have taken a cane to his ass!!!

I thought those were paints. Ms. Prince wasnt the type to be baking/cooking anyways. She was alway out whorin around. She was "a goddamn sinner!"

Anyways since the subject of the basement destruction scene came up

what is wup with that "gug" baby cry thats imposed when prince is thrashing about the music papers..that must have been odd in the editing voice over room to add that

When Jerome and Morris are walking around the block, discussing the problems with the girls' group, as Morris says: "That Apollonia babe we saw last night" his lips don't move in sync with the dialogue dub. He's actually mouthing "Vanity" instead of "Apollonia", indicating that this scene was filmed before Vanity backed out of the shoot.

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that those are preserves. From where I come, even the hoes preserve. Seriously, even in some of the most dysfunctional homes, and I had a lot of friends from dysfunctional homes, one could find some preserves. So, when The Kid's mama wasn't runnin' the streets sinnin' or taking dem asswhippings from Francis L., she must have been a preserving machine.

As for the "baby cry," yeah, that was one of the very few things that made me cringe about Prince, but I'm sure we all make interesting noises when we cry have a nervous breakdown and are about to kill ourselves though I would hope that I sound like the one who is doing the penetration rather than sounding like the one who is being penetrated.

Because that character´s name was supposed to be "Nikki" in the original script, and to be played by Vanity.

I never believed that shit. Everyone goes by their real name but Vanity wasnt? Nah Nikki was always Nikki separate.

I even remmeber in Right On or some mag that the lead fmeales role was to be Niccollette lol. Righttttt lol

Bob Cavallo talks about this in the commentary on the DVD. He said he asked Prince if it was okay that the song said "Nikki" when the character's name was "Apollonia." He said Prince looked at him like he was an idiot and asked, "Do you think the song should be called 'Darling Apollonia'? whofarted "

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.
