Apollonia remembers legendary singer Prince

Published 2 hours ago


LOS ANGELES - It was an interview four years in the making. Since April 21, 2016 the day Prince died suddenly, I had been trying to speak on the record with Apollonia Kotero. Apollonia is a local girl, but she became an international hit when the legendary Prince chose her as his co star for "Purple Rain." She was his muse and they remained close.

Does anybody Fact check anymore? Or I’d everything literally for sensationalized headlines? Apollonia was a stand in for Vanity cause she left before shooting the movie lol and sex shooter was a Vanity 6 song. These people and their revisionist history is tiresome

Well Prince once said that he and Apollonia slept under a table waiting for the reviews of Purple Rain [the album] to come out. So, who knows what she meant to him.

She replaced Denise cause Denise left. That's what happens in life and business. She was not a stand in cause Denise didn't come back. People need to get over this.

I literally just said that and it doesn’t negate anything I said.

Apollonia can't control what a lame reporter or journalist writes. It's why Prince never did many interviews for years, and we know it.

Isn't this the same reporter who recently did a store and it was full of mistakes?

Ive seen the sketch of him at the piano before. For some reason I thought I clearly remembered it saying it was about Vanity.

ANyway it was a slightly innaccurate but nice interview - but thats all there was?

The report waitied for years to get 5 minuters? More, please!

So she says....until the book comes out.

She is no better than the rest using P for her renewed 15 minutes of fame. Not that I mind but dont bust balls of others doing the same as you.

Look in the mirror Apples.

Prince Paper Magazine 1999 Interview ... Hmmm I guess Apollonia was telling the truth in the interview about them reading reviews on the PR album.

"Apollonia"—the goddess with the long hair and light skin who starred opposite him in Purple Rain—"and I slept under a hotel table waiting for the reviews of Purple Rain [the album]. We were so excited we couldn't sleep," he recalls. "When we saw them, they were all good," which is something of an understatement.”

Good gawd.....Tired story, tired Prince women.

Im quite certain Prince's personality and business ethics would want all these women to calm down, be quiet and stay classy.

Take a seat Ladies. It's time, really.

Remember, it's not about you.

Tell Sheila E. that. Apollonia has spoken up like once - Sheila thinks she's Prince reincarnated or some shit.

I may misunderstand your comment, but I think that when people work and/or play together, it’s about each and every person. Each person has a right to tell his/her story.

Beyond that, there may be reasonable concerns with the content of what someone says, but that is a different issue.
