I went to journalism school, which of course makes me an expert. Get a copy of the 1996 Ebony Magazine. It clearly states Purple Rain sold 100 million copies. Mistakes are everywhere. Prince did not perform Automatic in 1985. It was clearly after a Parade Show. Haven't listened to it in over 20 years, but will again to be sure.

What are you talking about ?

hey, I said I was over this.

I'm just stating that people have posted in these various places that it was 1985

PrinceText has been out for a long time, and had it lasted as 1985 in the early 2000s

There is no reason to go there, no one is calling your 'profession' into question

I was really being sarcastic, and making fun of Bart Van Halen, without trying to become him, lol. And also taking a jab at myself, for going to journalism school, but never saying I am a journalist, which I am not...lol, But also now pointing out that I've discussed this interview with a few, and none have it as 1985. In one of the tribute Magazines that came out describe Prince's 1986 smash movie and album, Purple Rain. So some people just make mistakes. Just for the hell of it, I googled Prince mojo interview, and first three results show 1986...buy people do read mistakes, and post them elsewhere to the point where the mistake becomes the truth...

I don't think Prince was there, but he sure did dress Kim with the outfit he and the band were wearing




Kim Basinger and brother during "Batman" Los Angeles Premiere at Mann Village theater in Westwood, California, United States.




Looks like she's wearing one of those oh so popular "trip strips" (as they were called in my neck of the woods) on her left wrist biggrin They were all the rage back then. Now I think they call them "Friendship Bracelets", and they are a trend for younger girls.



And it’s purple. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

I misworded it wrong...



What I meant by private screeing, was, when he was working on the album he was obviously seeing some of the scenes already cut and put together, inorder to be inpsired to create and work on the album. For example he took many audio parts from the movie and he saw probably rough edits or final edits of certain scenes, which made me wonder if he saw the finished movie in advance...



He didn't attend the star studded premiere after I just did some research, he was in London that day for the Nude Tour.

Your question doesn't make sense. "Did he just get his own private screening since he was working on the film". The film was done, ergo the premiere. He can't be working on something that is done.


The premiere is the 'private screening' for industry, including actors, producers, directors, media, and all other related personnel.

Hell, if anyone deserved a private screening it was Keaton or Nicholson. But, I can't imagine Prince not eventually seeing the movie somewhere with friends.






he had a private screening of a draft of the movie before he wrote any of the music. He came back with music and a score, they obviously didn't use his score.


I thought I had read that he spent time on the set while they were filming?? He would watch the Director and he met Kim B on the set as well.


If I recall correctly I have seen one photo of him watching Kim on set. Protectively, a few people thought.

I think that was at his house



He had just cone from the 6/7 birthday show, so he was still in Detroit. He called the station from his hotel room. Toward the end of the interview he said, β€œI gotta go..their knocking on my door”.



Mojo asked him when he was going to view it, and Prince said in 3 minutes, they are knocking on my door now. I doubt he'd be able to get to a theater in 3 min. Unless transcripts have the years mixed up.


.


That interview was in 1985. The eve of his birthday 6.7.1985 which was the Masquerade Ball in St Paul Minnesota.
.
The interview was by phone, on the radio. THE ELECTRIFYING MOJO (1985)


.


You're thinking the 1986 Detroit Parade tour birthday show
I doubt Purple Rain was still in theaters in 1986 (UTCM was his next move)

On the eve of his birthday in 1985, Prince gave a surprise interview to legendary Detroit disc jockey the Electrifying Mojo. He had never offered a live radio interview before. Of the experience, Mojo later said:"I had no idea he was going to call. I had no list of questions or anything like that. First I talked to Billy Sparks and he said, 'Hey Mojo! Prince wants to talk to you. You got a minute?' I said, 'Do I have a minute? Give me a minute to make sure we have a tape on,' and Prince says, 'Hey Mojo! What's happening? This is Prince.' If I hadn't heard Billy Sparks' voice prior to that, I may have said, 'Yeah, right.'"


MOJO: Let's talk about the album, Around The World In A Day... which I think was one of the greatest albums.


PRINCE: My favorite!




I think that was the interview where Prince asked if anyone could let him stay at their crib. He said the bed is hard in this hotel room. πŸ™‚πŸ’œ
Oh, Prince. πŸ™‚πŸ’œ
And he meant it too.
I wonder if anyone called the station saying they were fixing up there pullout couch. ❀️

MOJO told Prince his phones were going crazy and he would get him set up after the interview biggrin
