Which picture? Is it still available? BTW: I've heard that Prince also had Andy's photo streaming on a HUGE screen during that presser.

This was in August of last year.I think he deleted it from his twitter and I just checked hers and it stops in January...right after she tweeted about hearing 1000 Hugs and Kisses on the radio and that she had to turn it up and put the top down on her car.Prince responded with a cute pic of a Corgi dog with it's head poking out of the snow saying We tried that too and this happened. That tweet is still up.

Someone on Andy's Facebook told her that Prince stared at her pic while Oui Can Luv streamed. I also saw a cute tweet earlier where he asked everyone not to listen to the stream on Tidal until they started the stream at PP so they could all listen together.They said Prince used the pic for her Essence Festival promo.

After Amy Winehouse passed away, Prince posted this lovely version of "Love is a Losing Game".

Here's the beautiful version performed by both Andy Allo & Prince:

Yes, now it does look like yellow sneakers, I also see a set of black shoes and the white ones.

The white shoes on the right are in his office at Paisley Park. You can see them under a chair on the tour.

Yep that's the one they said it was...minus the font. I noticed their matching straps too-thought it was cute.

I think this was the thing: truly, I think P knew he was unwell and broke it off, breaking Andy's heart (she says as much in her lyrics). The fact that he has her portrait up in PP suggests that he loved her too - but something stopped him marrying her, even though he said in the 'lost' Rolling Stone interview (presumably just before his health started deteriorating) that he was open to tying the knot again.

It's the only thing that makes sense, Dibblekins. I think Prince tells the story in HNR1's "June." As he said, "Makes no sense yet, but it will soon." He was heartbroken, too.


June

Pasta simmers on the stove in June
Makes no sense yet, but it will soon
Conversation starters come way too hard
Nobody wants to be the martyr,
playin' the wrong cards
Why did you come to this planet?
Why did you come to this life?
How can you be everybody's dream,
and still be somebody's wife?
Tell me, what did you have for lunch today?
That's right, how would I know?
How would I know?
You are off somewhere, being free
while I starve in the lonesome cold.
Our bodies got used to each other
Now they're used to the sound
of Richie Havens' voice on the vinyl,
spinning round and round, round and round
Sometimes I feel I was born way too late
Shoulda been born on the Woodstock stage
But I'm just here, waitin', and waitin', and waitin'
Somebody famous had a birthday today
All I saw was another full moon
What's that?
Something's burning on the stove
Must be the pasta
Must be the pasta
Oh yeah, it's June

June is the eleventh and final track on Prince's 38th album Hitnrun Phase One.

While specific recording dates are not known, a BBC interview with Joshua Welton seemed to confirm that Hardrocklover and June were recorded on the same day in late June 2015, at Paisley Park Studios, Chanhassen, MN, USA.

THIS is Andy's heartbreak song. "Don't Ever Say (I Didn't Try)," she writes (and sings).

Thank you for posting that. I love that song though it is truly sad. After his passing,she posted a pic of herself with the caption 'You're the only one who's seen my scars' neutral

Didn't Jill say each protegee got two years and a record? But Andy was so much younger than he was - over 30 years, right? She thought she was the one, JH thought she was the one ...

I found an interview with Andy from last year. She discussed working with Prince on Superconductor as well as writing Time and What it Feels Like with him. She said there were a lot of "great songs written and recorded.

Andy got so much more than "two years and a record." Yes, he produced her album Superconductor. In fact, Prince delayed its release a couple of times, as was his pattern with his proteg├ęs, (just ask Jill!!). After that, Andy took matters into her own hands and self-released her own album. And she could do that because, unlike his other proteges, she wrote her own songs (and she co-wrote three of the songs with Prince.) Their acoustic album was never formally released, but he "leaked" it on Tidal for 12 hours. Not to mention, her historic collaborations on his Art Official Age album. And, have you seen how he courted her on stage(s), all around the world??!!?? Chile, please!! This was different.

There seemed to be something special about Andy though. Prince was still supporting her and going back to the music they worked on. I don't know that Andy felt she was the one. Because Prince had her picture up in the Galaxy Room at PP, many people have considered her to be special and to think he cared about her in some way. And the age difference didn't seem to matter to them at the time.

Lastly, I don't think JH thought she was the one. She might have wanted to be the one, but she knew/knows the deal.

I didn't know Andy wrote Time and What It Feels Like with Prince and she said there were many beautiful songs written and recorded so that sounds promising.Hopefully U Will B was one. She said Time and WIFL were originally meant for a seperate project from Superconductor but were recorded during that time.

Then, there were the "sharpie hearts." Amazingly, it is said that Prince would draw hearts on their ring fingers. PRINCE, THE ICON (and music/sex GOD!), was drawing/wearing sharpie hearts on his ring finger!!!!! Just consider that--and these photos-- for a moment...

On Andy's other Facebook there's another pic Prince took of her where she's wearing glasses with her hand up to her mouth displaying the heart. I think they may have drawn them on each others finger.Someone posted on her Facebook they were watching her draw on his hand while being interviewed in Paris.

I saw that one, too. It's so refreshing...and romantic.

Yes it was. The person who witnessed Andy drawing on his hand said it was very touching to watch and that Prince seemed so serene and at peace with her.

The lyrics to Andy's song Time Heals All Wounds suggests they may have been trying to make the relationship work.She began performing it live in early 2014 and played it for one of her Music Mondays a few weeks ago. She looked quite emotional while singing it...it was beautiful and poignant.

I know Andy is probably saying nothing out of respect for P...But I do think she would be in a position to clear up a lot of speculation as to his later years, health issues, and state of mind...
.
I wonder if she will ever speak out or, indeed, if anyone will ever feel able to ask her about it...

Do you have the lyrics to this song? I can't find them.

That's the thing, Dibblekins, I don't think Prince revealed his health issues to her. If she loves Prince as much as I think she does, and if she had any idea of a health crisis, I don't believe anything could have stopped her from being by his side for the duration, married or not. Instead, I believe, he just pulled away--until she walked. Then, it seems, he put considerable effort into trying to pull her back in, but Ms. Andy, afraid to let her guard down again, I think, wanted him to put a ring on it. Period. Full stop. And, I doubt that she will ever speak out about their relationship.
