If I was your Girlfriend.....Vanity

Vanity was involved with a new boyfriend. This new boyfriend asked her to marry him on the third date.
Vanity thought it was just amazing at the amount of love her new boyfriend showed her. Well Prince got word of this new boyfriend.

Vanity talked about a well known incident in which she and a "girlfriend" were in a store at the magazine area and this one girl said to her friend "hey I know why Vanity didn't do Purple Rain, because she was having Prince's baby. Well once again Prince was on it. Hence the song If I Was Your Girlfriend. In this song Prince is expressing his feelings to an ex someone he is seemingly pining for.
He talks about dressing her...helping her to pick out her clothes before they go out. Prince talks about the ex coming to him if someone hurt her even if that somebody was him...(Prince was very bold, very blunt) causing for hurt feelings sometimes. The line from the song I love so much..... We don't have to make babies to make love...He's talking to Vanity y'all about the store incident....this song is truly....Vanity

This 'bout the craziness and most untruthful shit I've heard on here since Prince was mad at Lenny about Ingrid (read: more bullshit).


You people need to stop with your trolling horse shit.


I've been waiting to use this one!

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Excuse me....I speak the truth.....this is part of the explanation for the song IIWYG....obviously you're not a true fan of him or her....if you were you would pick up on the lyrics. This is my attempt of breaking down a song and its meaning...A lot of times with Prince if you wanted to know how he was feeling you listen to his music.

Some of his most emotional songs were about Vanity....he made you feel what he was feeling. I stand by my statements. You can call it whatever you want. You have your right to your opinion and its OK. But please believe I speak the truth!!

So let's see now if I broke down the lyrics of Adore or The Beautiful Ones.... Revelation..Strange Relationship... That would be untruthful horseshit as well!!! No!!!

I'm glad that I knew who owned his heart!!! The dear one, the beautiful one, the adored one!!! The one who he followed to his eternal destination, within what approx 66 days from each other. People need to wake up!!! Prince loved this woman with all his heart....the love of his life!!! Deal with it!

I've always heard IIWYG was about Susannah but I also thought it may have been inspired by Vanity.I don't recall Prince ever mentioning who it was for.

U know its just one of those songs if u followed Prince and Vanity relationship you would know. IIWYG its a song of Prince singing to an ex, He sings "would you remember to tell me all of the things you forgot to tell me when I was ur man"..... Its all Vanity....I mean for years people thought The BOs and Strange Relationship was about Susannah..... But they were not.

That's true in regard to TBO's and SR. Yes,it does make more sense that he's singing to someone that had left him.

Newsflash: Prince didn't spend his whole life writing songs about an ex-girlfriend lol There were many,many,many women in his life.It's pointless trying to figure out who each song was supposed to be about.

yeahthat Lol, I don't care who they are about, it makes no difference to me in that regard. All that matters is if I like the song or not. It's not as if the women in his life were the draw for his music. Prince was.

I am sorry the mere discussion or opinion of Prince and Denise is met with such a viceral response. There are threads about every woman Prince was with and I do not see such a response.

I am curious why the mere mention, the what if causes such a response to call someone out of their name.

.

There is a thread suggesting Prince was sexing a girl he knew since she was a kid and I did not see the outrage. This is curious to me.

I think it's because,there are certain orgers who are convinced that Vanity was the absolute love of Prince's life.They go a little too far with that shrug They assume that every song was written about her,they assume that he never really truly loved anyone else,they assume that they were a "supreme" couple who were destined to be together.There is no proof whatsover that "If I Was Your Girlfriend" is about Vanity.

I get that but there are thread after thread with others stating fill-the-blank
is/was the love of his life yet no one is called out of their names or bullied for their opinions. Mention the same stanning with Denise and it gets brutal.No reason for a verbal beatdown.

Excuse me with all due respect. I'm entitled to my opinion. My opinion. If you don't like what I'm talking about go post on another thread. I'm not here to fight or be threatened by anyone because they don't like what I'm saying. How mean to threaten and attempt to intimidate.
Everyone should be allowed to express themselves without be threatened!! Shame on you!!! I don't know who I'm tangling with?? I didn't know I was tangling! Please be careful with ur words. I'm bringing no disrespect to you. Once again if you don't like what I'm saying go to another thread and post. I'm peaceful, genuine and loyal

There's a beautiful interview out there with Vanity referring
IIWYG right down to the lyrics. She's talking about her and Prince admitting and reaffirming just what they mean to each other.....In this article much is based off of this particle song and others....I stand by my statement!! Once again its my opinion.

OK I'm not talking about other songs. I'm talking about IIWYG. I know he wrote songs about a lot of people.....I'm just expressing my thoughts about this song!! Its no big deal if you don't feel the same way. Its only my opinion. But yes Vanity was very special....I'm always gonna feel this way and we can go back and forth forever. I'm not gonna change my mind. Nor do I have to. If you don't like the topic of my post find another post and respond. I come in peace.....

I had googled it a while ago. It would always pop up. I googled in archives newspapers...but I think google took that away....it was such a wonderful article she spoke about how after 5 years apart her and Prince could finally tell each other how much they loved each other and just exactly what they meant to each other. The article was dated I believe 1988...after her breakup with Nikki Six.....

Prince said in his last concert (Atlanta 10 PM), that the song was inspired by the movie "The Way We Were". He said in the movie that Streisand's character kept going back to Redford when something happened in her life, because even though they had broken up, he was still her best friend. This line, in particular, references that movie: "If I was your one and only friend, Would U run 2 me if somebody hurt U, Even if that somebody was me?"

I had wondered about that with the way he kept referencing the movie during performances of IIWYG but I missed what he said about it at the show in Atlanta. Thanks!

Prince did not say the song was "inspired by" the movie "The Way We Were". He was explaining the lyrics to the song, using an analogy of the characters' roles in the movie in relation to the song. The song is about Prince wanting to be more intimate with his girlfriend than she was with her friends. He wanted to be her best friend. He described the scene in the movie where Streisand called Redford after he had left her, because he was her closest friend.
