I think everyone is still reeling from the death of Prince this past week and I know his music has been on constant rotation in my house since his untimely passing.
Pinky was fortunate enough to meet one of the stars of Purple Rain, Apollonia a little while ago when she made a rare appearance.
Check out her recap below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here still incredibly sad about the passing of Prince. After a weekend spent listening to his music, watching past performances on TV, and reminiscing about seeing him live, I still can’t believe he’s gone. For today’s Manic Monday, I really wanted to honor his memory by selecting someone associated with The Purple One, so although I’ve talked about meeting Apollonia Kotero before, it seemed like the perfect choice.
A few years ago, I had the rare opportunity to meet the beautiful woman Prince wooed in the film, Purple Rain. Apollonia was gorgeous with an infectious smile in the film and still looks great today.
I remember being completely transfixed by her in the film and loved seeing them together. How lucky to be hand-picked by Prince himself! Apollonia was a guest at the Hollywood Show and was very sweet, if a little quiet. I’m not sure how many shows she’s done, but perhaps it was a bit overwhelming for her. Regardless, it was awesome to meet her. My thoughts and love go out to her as well as Prince’s fans and family at this difficult time. May he Rest in Purple.
