Imho, it is. His music was for public consumption, his relationships were private. Prince was a VERY private person who avoided public drama. If you want to discuss his relationships, that's fine. Just keep in mind that it is opinion and stop trying to convince everyone that your (general your, not you specifically) opinion is the right one because you (again, general) don't know, can't know, and the only one who does isn't with us any more. And besides? Why is it important? Does it really matter who his greatest love was? At this point, all it is about is for some people to romanticize a relationship THEY saw as ideal, but the relationship ended, which signifies that maybe it was not ideal.



I am hearing you, but I think the music was about his relationships which is why the discussion of relationships is hard to avoid. I think it is ok to talk all day about the melodies and the time signatures in the music and if they were jazz based and inspired by his father or if they were more miles davis inspired. Likewise to discuss his relationships and the songs they inspired is equally interesting. And I assume everything posted here is opinion.


I'm not saying that none of his songs were about the women he was involved with. I'm sure many of the songs were about various people over the course of his career, and that he revisited songs that he felt fit a new relationship, and rather than come up with a new song, recycled an older one. Prince could get away with doing something like that because he was so prolific and because....well... because he was Prince. But the majority of the discussions that talk about his exes aren't about the music, what songs were inspired by whom, they de-evolve into a "he loved this one more than he loved that one and you can't convince me otherwise". And then it de-evolves even further into a vilification of one ex over another.

I've jumped in and defended an ex when it seemed everyone was ganging up on her, I hate to see women belittle women, when we should be building each other up because we get enough of the belittling in the world we live in without us doing it to each other. But this thing with Denise, it gets old after awhile, hearing the same people go on and on about how she was the love of his life, how he was always looking for her in every women he met, how he wrote every song for her, how he spent his life pining away for her. I adore Denise. I have a lot of respect for her. She went through a lot in life and overcame so much more. But I also respect Mayte, Manuela, Jill, Susan, et al. They were all of them strong women in their own ways and they ALL brought something special to Prince's life at the time when he needed it and them. And yes, he was a player and played quite a few of the women, but again, he was Prince, he could get away with it. And players, don't pine, they are ALWAYS looking for their next conquest. Though, Prince matured and his attitude seemed to mellow, and I absolutely adore that man. But each relationship was important to Prince for one reason or another; they EACH of them were individuals that Prince felt connected to and allowed into a private world that the fans were not / are not allowed into. IMHO, not a one of them was more important than the next, because they brought him some peace and happiness for a time, and I value them each for doing that.




Yes!!! And I have said that they are all important too here on the org. I'm
Just concerned about telling people to go away,so to speak. "Oh here you go again"
Type of thought. First because I'm new here and want to hear everyone's passions
And opinions. Second because it is ALL OPINION in the first place and I personally don't think however many times someone's tells me their opinion that they want me to make it my own. So if I say over and over that Prince was the best performer ever, I'm equally ok with them saying no Bowie was. That is the stuff life is made of,free will freedom of speech. I'm trying to understand why the conversations have to be parental in tone.

If you are new, then you will see how it goes eventually. For those of us that have been here for many many years, we know how it ends up going. And I'm not saying anyone shouldn't speak about whatever topic they want to speak about, as I said previously, if you want to talk about his relationships, that's fine. You seem to grasp that it is just opinion, but there are some that do not, that believe the opinions they hold are fact and will even get involved in name-calling towards posters that don't agree with them, because after all, they are right the one that disagrees is wrong. So you may not think they want you to adopt their opinion, but trust when I say they really will argue with you and tell you their opinion is fact and they have this, that, or the other to support (and what they are using to support it is suppositiion, based upon their perception of events, not on actual fact). And no one has said that it has to be parental in tone, but these conversations usually de-evolve pretty quickly. One person gets involved and suddenly they have the whole group jumping on someone that disagrees.

Personally, I would rather Prince retain some of his mystique. It was that mystique that drew me to him to begin with. I don't need to analyze every angle of his life, his world. So I'm content to let his relationships rest in peace with him. That was his private world and I don't need to be privvy to it. I love the songs and I associate them with aspects of my life, the way his music has touched me and my world, and that is enough for me. Now I will tend to analyze his deeper, spiritual music, because it intrigues me more, but his relationships hold no power for me.

Are you obsessed with this? Or you are just here trolling people? Let it go. You are new here yet you are doing your best to ensure that you can't be seen as blending in. Over something as easily answered as this. Really, just stop.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

I read both parts of the Interview now and from what I read, Sharon seems to be a really nice person. It's great to see that she respects her brother's wishes and the wishes from his fans.

Are some of you guys kidding me? Prince sister divulged in a question and answer thread, that in her opinion she thought Denise Matthews was the love of Prince's life! No one is suppose to talk about it? Everyone should please shut up and go away? This is to be swept under the rug? Nothing to see here...? Lol. As this is a Prince fan site, and everyone has been talking about everything under the sun pertaining to Prince including his love life since the dawn of 2002, why stop now at Sharon's comment about Denise being the love of his life? Lol. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a debate about this.

No one will ever know for absolute certain without a doubt who the love of Prince's life was, but since people have been speculating for years that it was Vanity/Denise and since Prince's sister just stated her opinion that she thinks its Denise as well, it's kind of hard not to entertain it as a thought. I mean, if you asked me who the love of my sister's life was, I guarantee you I would get it right... and vice versa... But okay I get it, it's her opinion. But what an opinion it was! Yea, I think I'm gonna talk about this for a while. For as long as I want. Her comment is worth contemplating. You might not find this interesting, but just because you don't, doesn't mean you need to try to stop people from talking about it. Do you guys see some of the threads that are on this site? They speculate about his son! They speculate about his death! They speculate about how he did drugs, when he did drugs, how much drugs it was that he did, but no one is suppose to talk about his love life? Or is it just this one particular comment we're not supposed to talk about...?

Thank you for asking the question Purplebflogirl. I asked her about the Vanity 6 album and she didn't reply, but I liked your question much better than mine. You went straight for the kill. biggrin Her answer that Denise was the love of his life was very interesting since many people suspect that as well. I wonder what led her to have such an opinion? Something had to...

[Edited 8/17/17 6:32am]

I'm totally being a newsy fan when I say this, but I would love for Sharon to further elaborate on her comment regarding Denise, particularly if he was still in love with her after the divorce from Mani and in the last years of his life. I know that he loved Denise greatly. Some fans believe he never got over Denise and some believe that he moved on from her. His music indicates that he dearly loved Mayte and then Mani. But I wonder, Did his feelings for Denise resurface after the second divorce?

Yes, I would love to know what led to her thinking this way. There had to be a reason why she decided to say that Denise was the love of Prince's life. The reason is the alluring part in all of this. I get that this is her opinion, but it's how she came by that opinion that I think would be the real revelation.

Purplefam99, you're not a troll. I've seen you in other threads backing practically all of Prince's women in one way or another. You seem unbiased in every way and eager to debate all aspects of Prince's life without preference. I commend you for that.

"I don't think he lived a miserable life, crying daily when they broke up but obviously he loved her very much."

Although Prince wrote the song "Computer Blue" we are not really computers. And if you really listen to the song, even Prince the computer went through varying emotions. We go through different stages of reflection. Some of us are able to move on after a break up but still commemorate and hold onto memories and tender feelings for a love lost without falling apart. Although our relationship didn't last, and I'm married to a completely different man that I absolutely adore, I still remember my first love with fondness and cherish what we shared. He will forever have the status of being my first true love even though we had to part ways. It's possible to acknowledge a person whom in your heart you knew was "the one" and still live a pleasurable life.

Changirl said:
Everyone has had a true love, and Denise was his. It's obvious, really. Denise was close in age, similar backgrounds. Both driven but unfortunately too much alike so it couldn't work. She had conditions Prince just couldn't meet, especially after her conversion. According to Toban, over time Prince tried to reconcile with her more than once but she refused to be anything more than friends. No one came close to being on the same level as Prince like she was, sad to say.

Reading what Sharon said reminded me of when Carmen Electra said that she thought Denise and Prince were soulmates. It's not just Prince.org. It make me wonder why some of the people that were so close to him at one point would think along these lines...

Vashtix said:
You learn to live with what life brings. You move on but your heart never totally leaves the first love and I think he and Denise remained friends over the decades. I think they were 2 people whose lives paralleled each other. I think the feelings were never packed away just evolved into a deep respect and friendship.

Yes, I believe in their later years they both knew what they meant to each other and took comfort in being friends.

>>Pacey68:

Question 1: what is your favourite Prince song/album?

Question 2: I don't know how much input you have regarding reissues but could you pressure labels to fact check for future releases? The liner notes of the PR reissue contained a lot of errors regarding recording details.

A: Well, that WB deal for the PR reissue was developed by those who really didn’t know my brothers business, we are not consulted or asked for input on any of the released materials. You are probably going to see many more mistakes since many of those in charge are not asking us for input and are making decisions while atempting to learn Prince 101.>>

Isn't the entire family in the Thank You section of PR Deluxe? So they must have had a saying in it....

Aww TY.IMHO most already knew she was the love of his life..But it was good to get the opinion of a family member..She knew him..we didn't.And again for the M1 &M2 fans.. nobody is saying he didn't love them at one time but when their relationships ended..so did communication.He kept in contact with Denise..that alone speaks volumes.
Until the end of time

I agree with you....it's bullshit. nod


Thank you for pointing out the glaring hypocrisy and double standards. I am guessing that if Sharon had named Mayte as the love of his life, this pissing and moaning and whining would not be happening.

I do not recall the mods picking and choosing which of Sharon's words we are permitted to discuss and I agree that much more private stuff has and is being discussed here that no one seems to have a problem with.


Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

Thank you for asking the question Purplebflogirl. I asked her about the Vanity 6 album and she didn't reply, but I liked your question much better than mine. You went straight for the kill. biggrin Her answer that Denise was the love of his life was very interesting since many people suspect that as well. I wonder what led her to have such an opinion? Something had to...

I think no matter what good or bad family knows you best, even if your at odds with family they are the people who know your good and bad the best. They likely experienced our good and bad. They are the ones with access. Access counts or else we wouldn't have tuned in for her answers. Best.

Are some of you guys kidding me? Prince sister divulged in a question and answer thread, that in her opinion she thought Denise Matthews was the love of Prince's life! No one is suppose to talk about it? Everyone should please shut up and go away? This is to be swept under the rug? Nothing to see here...? Lol. As this is a Prince fan site, and everyone has been talking about everything under the sun pertaining to Prince including his love life since the dawn of 2002, why stop now at Sharon's comment about Denise being the love of his life? Lol. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a debate about this.

No one will ever know for absolute certain without a doubt who the love of Prince's life was, but since people have been speculating for years that it was Vanity/Denise and since Prince's sister just stated her opinion that she thinks its Denise as well, it's kind of hard not to entertain it as a thought. I mean, if you asked me who the love of my sister's life was, I guarantee you I would get it right... and vice versa... But okay I get it, it's her opinion. But what an opinion it was! Yea, I think I'm gonna talk about this for a while. For as long as I want. Her comment is worth contemplating. You might not find this interesting, but just because you don't, doesn't mean you need to try to stop people from talking about it. Do you guys see some of the threads that are on this site? They speculate about his son! They speculate about his death! They speculate about how he did drugs, when he did drugs, how much drugs it was that he did, but no one is suppose to talk about his love life? Or is it just this one particular comment we're not supposed to talk about...? [Edited 8/18/17 18:55pm]



I agree with you....it's bullshit. nod


Thank you for pointing out the glaring hypocrisy and double standards. I am guessing that if Sharon had named Mayte as the love of his life, this pissing and moaning and whining would not be happening.

I do not recall the mods picking and choosing which of Sharon's words we are permitted to discuss and I agree that much more private stuff has and is being discussed here that no one seems to have a problem with.


ALL OF THIS^ Great points luvgirl! babynoz, you always know how to come through! worship

Thanks^^

June7 and Sharon took the time and went out of their way to get these questions answered. I'm not sure what sense it makes to dismiss the answers people don't want to hear.

She didn't have to do this.

I was smiling when I read about Prince teaching the local kids while Sharon was at work. biggrin

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

The most revealing things from part II for me are:

1) how little input the heirs seem to have regarding business decisions this late in the game.

2) How WB and the heirs seem to have very little common interest and do not seem to be on the same page.

3) How she may be as in the dark about the circumstances surrounding his death as the rest of us.

4) The heirs (or at least Sharon's) ideas going forward regarding the music is reasuring.

5) I found it a little worrying that she says they want to maintain Prince's ideals regarding swearing etc. She even seemed to imply disapointment in WB for releasing We Can Fuck. I hope this doesn't mean a whole bunch of songs will remain unreleased because the lyrics are less than clean.


Regarding #5 I have a feeling whatever the heirs have a say in will not include profanity. That doesn’t bother me. One, because I respect Prince’s feelings here and two, because I think there is be plenty of amazing music in the vault that doesn’t contain profanity.

I'm extremely pleased to learn that Sharon and the other heirs seem to wish to get off the majors' boat, then self-release a great quantity of what's in the vault thru an indie label and an NPGMC type of site. This is quite reassuring and if things are to go that way, I can only wish for the heirs to get control of the estate soon. If anything, Ms. Nelson seems to be a very sensible person. I hope this interview will restore a sense of trust in the Nelson family's capacity to run things properly.


.


The only thing that bothers me is the part about not releasing material that "Prince would not have wanted released", because for one thing I find it hard to decide when exactly one should draw that that line, and as Sharon herself said, Prince changing his ways doesn't mean that what had existed does not exist anymore. My belief is that everything can and should be released on the long run: Prince's body of work makes it clear that he had changed his perspective and his later work is a testimony to that, so I fail to see why releasing earlier work with profanity or outrageous content is disrespectful to him as long as the listener is informed of when such material was recorded. Hell, save maybe those 2 infamous rape lines, I fail to see how anything could be worse than Sister, Head, Darling Nikki or The Black Album. However I am not the person in charge, neither did I know Prince personally, so this is just my opinion for what it's worth.


I’m not aware of Prince changing his opinion on profanity (late in his life). I think it’s easy to draw the line there. Everything else should be based on how good the music is. I’m not one who thinks everything from the vault should be released. Quantity doesn’t always equal quality. Obviously deciding what is quality is subjective but somebody/bodies will have to do it.

Regarding 5) she sort of contradicted herself a little by saying that one the one hand they would totally respect P's wishes when it came to the type of material he would want released but later stated that he issue was with PERFORMING the material and that the recordings are part of the historical record.



To be fair if they were going to toally respect his wishes in terms of what should be released then nothing would be released as that was his wish at the time and he left no instructions to the contrary as far as we know...


Obviously Prince still allowed all of his albums to be purchased as is. I remember when BET interviewed him during Musicology and asked him about performing songs like Head and Erotic City he replied “you got the records”. But music that hasn’t been released yet is a completely different matter IMO. I have a really hard time believing Prince would’ve signed off on any unreleased music that contained profanity. With the PR remaster he only submitted the remastered album, everything else was WB’s decision.

Yes, I would love to know what led to her thinking this way. There had to be a reason why she decided to say that Denise was the love of Prince's life. The reason is the alluring part in all of this. I get that this is her opinion, but it's how she came by that opinion that I think would be the real revelation.





I'm curious by that notion as well, do you think perhaps she had the chance To meet Denise ever? something had to make her feel that way. I'm grateful She was willing to give her opinion.


It's certainly possible that she met her, she had almost thirty years to do so. Yes, I believe something led her to say Denise was the love of his life. I wish I could have another question and answer! I'd be all over this like Purplebfflogirl, my new found hero... lol

Are you obsessed with this? Or you are just here trolling people? Let it go. You are new here yet you are doing your best to ensure that you can't be seen as blending in. Over something as easily answered as this. Really, just stop.



The thread is entiltled Discuss Sharon Nelson Q & A here and only here. I'm just trying to figure out why some don't want that to happen HERE!!! The question was asked, she answered now let's discuss!!!! The Mods said Talk about it here!! I don't see that as trolling, or an obsession. And why do I need to blend in I didn't see that as a requirement when I sign up. Best.


Purplefam99, you're not a troll. I've seen you in other threads backing practically all of Prince's women in one way or another. You seem unbiased in every way and eager to debate all aspects of Prince's life without preference. I commend you for that.




Deep thanks luvgirl.

"I don't think he lived a miserable life, crying daily when they broke up but obviously he loved her very much."

Although Prince wrote the song "Computer Blue" we are not really computers. And if you really listen to the song, even Prince the computer went through varying emotions. We go through different stages of reflection. Some of us are able to move on after a break up but still commemorate and hold onto memories and tender feelings for a love lost without falling apart. Although our relationship didn't last, and I'm married to a completely different man that I absolutely adore, I still remember my first love with fondness and cherish what we shared. He will forever have the status of being my first true love even though we had to part ways. It's possible to acknowledge a person whom in your heart you knew was "the one" and still live a pleasurable life.

Reading what Sharon said reminded me of when Carmen Electra said that she thought Denise and Prince were soulmates. It's not just Prince.org. It make me wonder why some of the people that were so close to him at one point would think along these lines...

Vashtix said:
You learn to live with what life brings. You move on but your heart never totally leaves the first love and I think he and Denise remained friends over the decades. I think they were 2 people whose lives paralleled each other. I think the feelings were never packed away just evolved into a deep respect and friendship.

Yes, I believe in their later years they both knew what they meant to each other and took comfort in being friends.
[Edited 8/19/17 8:03am]



Yes I wonder since Sharon says Prince didn't get rid of much of anything I wonder if perhaps they found more Denise items records clippings and such in his home to lead her to say she was his greatest love. I wonder!!!!
