    Thanks so much for this John! I loved Prince in the ’80s and I especially loved Vanity and Vanity 6. Nasty Girl hit #1 on the Dance charts, their album was stellar and went gold, I played it all the time. Felt so sad when she bolted and didn’t appear in Purple Rain, which would have been a big success for her. I did enjoy her two solo albums and saw all her films and many television appearances. I was happy she found Jesus but sad to learn of her severe drug addiction which jeopardized her health and derailed her once flourishing career. With so many music icons passing, I used to joke that Vanity was next and sadly I was right. Maybe she disavowed her past but for us gay guys in the early ’80s, it was glamor, beauty, teasing sensuality, titillating and the music was delicious!!
