Prince Symbol (and Sheila E) in new commercial

A commercial for Morongo Casino (out here in CA) starts off showing the Prince symbols on Sheila E's drums and continues to show Sheila and others enjoying the casino; odd seeing the Prince symbols in a commercial.

Is it her butterfly combonation or his symbol. She could be getting herself into a lot of trouble if she keeps this up.

—Get off whatever drugs you are using. I have never attacked any of his lovers so you need to stop imagining things. The two wives are ex-wives not lovers and all can see that greedy gold diggers. I like Sheila and she is free to use her own symbol. I know there are people on this board who do not like her and they will report her if she is using his symbol. You do not have to a lawyer to know the symbol is copyrighted so you stop embarrassing yourself and stop worrying about my language. Manage yourself

One hundred percent it's the Prince symbol and there's 2 of 'em. Crafty the way the symbols open the commercial. As a matter of fact I posted this on the Prince forum and they switched it to here; when in fact the subject of this thread is Prince.

Not good for her to use his symbol. I am not sure what is going on with her lately.

I am not worrying about her but other on this board. Work on your comprehension. I cannot hate someone I do not know from Adam and the Melvoins actions speak for themselves.

One thinks Prince could not have made it without her despite the fact he was making it fine before she came along and the other thinks she was more then one girlfriend out of many who he said he wrote a song about. Does she seem smart to you? Oh she cannot seem to find a job.

I saw the commercial and was perplexed by it. Her name is never mentioned and it goes real fast showing the amenities of the hotel and casino, so I thought it might have been a cover band or something.

Interesting. Perhaps she is playing there soon.

How so she is still doing the same show and just added PR to the show. It is possible that the casio belived they had the right to use the symbol all own their own.

Yes. I was perplexed also; I had to rewind it a few times. I don't think the commercial has anything to do with her playing there soon; I think she's in it just so they can open the commercial with the Prince symbols "legally" since it's on her drums.

Is it possible she has permission to use it? If not, she probably should be using it.

Her being a good and cheritable person, shouldn't matter.

We all know by now Sheila is the biggest Prince fanatic, I mean that in the most loving way possible, we know she is, but we know she is a serious business woman. People are not going to forget about Prince, not on her watch, but she ain't going to be giving away everything either. That's how it works in my head. So I couldn't care any less about her using the symbol. The Estate ain't yapping about it then I'm not either. Keep it in people's face.

I do like Sheila, but her using Prince's symbol makes me uncomfortable. She didn't do that while he was alive, so why now? I know it may be her way of paying tribute to the man she loved and worked with, but she should be known for having her own trademark. There are a lot of people who aren't cool with her using Prince's symbol because it makes her look like she is trying to profit off of Prince's legacy, and I understand that. I don't get the butterfly with Prince's symbol. A butterly represents growth/rebirth, so what is she trying to say?

.

I wonder if Sheila plans on writing her own book some day? She would have much to say!

Well guess what? She's not his best friend, they didn't even talk..how many years...before he died? And he had many lovers. Sheila isn't special.

Except facts are facts. And you are incorrect. They did speak and performed together a lot in the years prior to his death.

.

.

The fact that you are not aware of this, and the fact that you didn't even know about her book both show you really dont know what you are talking about.

.

.

And if you think she wasn't special, you clearly know very little about Prince's history.

I know about her book, it's been discussed here numerous times. Please point to my statement where I said I didn't know she had a book.


They didn't speak for at least 2 years prior to his death if the statements around here are true.


Sheila is one helluva drummer though.


I know, I know. She was so special, just ask all of his 'best friends' & lovers, they'll tell you exactly how special they were. We see it play out on social media all the time, lil snips of jealousy here and there. Each one thought they were the 1. lol


Sheila was so special she was wife material...oh wait, that's not true either, because he was married 2X, and neither time was to Sheila.


Didn't Sheila try to call P after the plane incident, and he wouldn't take her call? Hmmm

Anyway, I'm out. Sheila should def stop using his symbol, especially to promote herself and casinos, cruises, etc. Hopefully she has permission, if not hopefully they'll shut it down.
