This is very cool. I have never seen this. I wonder where it is now? It seems so heartfelt her thoughts put into it.

I miss old TV, they would never give her the time to explain all that now. Could it still be around? Good stuff Lovejunky, thanks!

If your last December came, what would u do?

That’s really interesting. I wonder what she meant by the object, I’m assuming is a clam or something, where she stated “it’s a woman and her baby in there to protect them”?🤔

I am SURE I read on here after Prince passed that the jewellery box created by Vanity was in his private quarters at PP.

It has box-like qualities; it opens; it's encrusted with jewels - ergo, to the undiscerning eye, it could be described as a jewellery box. The person doing the describing may have found it easier to name it as such. Who knows?

YES. This might've been it. Or, he had another one made by her.
What year was this video from, Vashtix?
His protégés all remained important to him. Forever.

WOW. Thanks, Love!! I had never seen this. Watching Vanity display the piece made me feel so sad. Clearly, she loved Prince to distraction. It was also sad to hear her talk about moving on from Purple Rain. She handled it pretty well, at least publicly, but I think that she deeply regretted that decision. I tell you, if there is a more compelling story in American entertainment history than Prince (and his associates), I'd like to know what/who it is.

The movie is called "Memories of Murder from 1990.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0100132/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_11

I feel bad for her because she osbviously high. Also this would back up what her brother in law said about Prince and Vanity getting back together around the Batman time.

I didnt catch that she was high first time...

I was just struck by how Sweet is her nature

SHe carried herself relativle well under the circumstances

nothing too embarrassing...

Its clear though that she couldnt embrace her dark side

as Prince did..

Vanity was too good for this world in some ways...

I remember watching Memories Of Murder years ago, she was amazing especially in some of those scenes with Nacy Allen. I wish that it (along with Lady Boss) was more readily available on dvd, blu-ray and Netflix.

You know, looking at this again, her voice really quivers around 9:03 when she says “That’s Prince and me in the cover of Rolling Stone.”
LJ is right, she was too good for this world. What a beautiful way to say it.
I think Prince knew that.

Love this!!! Never saw this before!!! This is the sculpture that she made Prince as a thank u showing her love after he written Adore which was released circa 1987. She worked on the sculpture for about two yrs. (88-90) making sure she got it just right. She was such a sweet person. And her love for Prince undeniable!

I always never knew what to get her, and would sometimes feel embarrassed when I knew how much thought she put in her gift. Hers were always reflective. Reminders of a memory, a moment spent talking about nothing and... then later she'd show me that she was really listening.

The rock was a surprise but I immediately knew why and her thoughts behind it.

She had read something I had written, which reveal a bit of me as a kid.

Her gift was also saying that not much had changed, that she sees that kid in me. At the river, daydreaming and skipping rocks across the water.

Yes she was... she was very sweet.

She reminds me of the type of child who could endlessly play and pretend
And chat to her dolls and stuffed animals and give them such life and personalities that you wanted to know more. Such a joy to be an adult and have access to that childlike deep deep imaginative place. That is a gift.

She and Debbie used to share some of the most silliest jokes.

This is a poem she shared and jokingly thought of it kind of like "the story of her life," after death.

Judge Not

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
as I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
by the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
who made me sputter and gasp-
the thieves, the liars, the sinners,
the alcoholics, the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
was rotting away in hell,
was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here?
Has there been a huge mistake?

And why's everyone so quiet,
so somber? Give me a clue.'
'Hush, child, ' said He 'They're all in shock.
No one thought they'd see you.'
