Little Red Corvette...Mi-Ling or Vanity?

https://www.bbc.com/news/...s-50556922

Mi-ling wrote a book claiming it was about her...but Lisa says Vanity? Anyone knowledgeable?

Mi-Ling is a [Snip - luv4u] who also thought "Sign o the Times" was a reference to her

Okay just checking. I’ve always kinda gave her the raised eyebrow cause it’s amazing you can be THAT sure it’s song is about you if you knew who he was....that you wrote a book about it.

Apparently she also thought Sexy Dancer...hmmmm

The Sexy Dancer one is also just as flimsy.

LRC is about her because he says "Mayday!" and her nickname was May.
SoTT is about her because she once had a conversation with him about the name Nate.
Sexy Dancer is about her because she was known in the clubs as Fancy Dancer.
Five Women is about her because he references a girl named May.

Zzzzzz....

It is about Mi-Ling, she was the inspiration behind the song.


There is an interview with her located near bottom of the page. See link.

The link went to the W & L interview about it. MiLing hasn't done the book yet.


Really, does it matter it could be some girl none of us will ever know. But it's fun seeing who can spin the bezt story.
