It's a free podcast, so it's available all over the place. I get it through the rss feed:

I've been wondering whether Prince ever addressed the topic with Lenny, like asking him "what were you thinking?".

However we don't know everything that's happened. Some say Lenny was under pressure from his label for publishing reasons, some say he didn't want his wife to know he was dating Ingrid, some suggest Madonna knew and some that she didn't... It's really hard to tell and it's not our place to judge what went on between those four. In any case, it's always better not to define one's relationship with someone based on what went on between that someone and someone else, and I assume Prince knew that. Let's also not forget that at that time Lenny K was everything but a vetaran: he had released one album, that hadn't been a hit at all, and he wasn't anywhere near being the star he would become soon after.

.

Regarding Prince blocking the release of Ingrid's album, I don't recall reading any such thing. What I've read is that their was a disagreement regarding whether she should sing or only do spoken word, and that when WB supported Ingrid wanting to sing, Prince lost interest in the project and told Michael K. to finish it. However this doesn't entirely add-up with the story of how Michael K. just recorded an instrumental track on Ingrid's vocals for the sake of toying with it, and how Prince was so impressed by what he heard that he decided to let him finish the record. In any case Prince agreed to record some parts on an Ingrid/Michael K. part and he told Michael, upon hearing Hippy Blood, that it was "the future of music", and he even did 2 remixes of it for the maxi-single. No indication that he did anything to sabotage the project, on the contrary. I think the problem was more, as usual, that upon release neither WB nor PP did much to promote it and it was forgotten a week after its release. IDK about the US and UK but in France, no one but hardcore Prince fans ever heard of this record.

.

The story of Tony LeMans and Ingrid, for all its mysteries, is yet another topic and bringing it up here only serves to confuse the whole thing. And WTF has Good Question got to do with any of this?

I don't see anything in your post that indicates that Lenny Kravitz did anything to Prince.

If - and I emphasize if - Lenny did something to Ingrid Chavez, that's between Lenny and Ingrid.

Or are you suggesting that women are too stupid/weak/naive to fight their own battles?

A pathetic response that has nothing to do with the OP. In your rush to be on just about every thread here, you missed the point in a spectacular way. Either slow down or try harder.
