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 "

lol see there

I always wanted to know where he got that damn hoop earring. His mom is a gatdamn sinner and then he wakes up with big honkin' earring on. (I know a scene was cut there, but still...)

Also...that damn earring was pierced or non-pierced, depending on the scene. Whe he puts it on Apples to begin with, he's screwing the back of the earring to tighten it (like a non-pierced earring). Later, when he picks it up off the basement floor, it has a post and back on it.

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

I vaguely remember the script had a scene after a Francis L beatdown , he came to her, and she gave him her earring during their talk.

Which brings to mind again, in the released version, Princes mom has nothing to say to him. Ever. And all he says to her is Ma. Its as if they have no engagement with each other. Talk about some Freudian phallic stage trip.

Speaking of jewelry:

question


Where is the location of that pawn shop? I got a few fake gold chains on my boots, and I want to cash in to buy a custom cloud guitar.
