Purple Rain, Purple Rain…
Sorry, that had to be said. The Luscious Ms. Pinky got the chance to meet Prince’s Purple Rain co-star Apollonia. I mean who didn’t fall in love with her when she graced the screen in the 1980’s?
At the recent collector’s show, Pinky met Apollonia in the flesh!
Check out her recap for this weeks Manic Monday below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here thinking I should have started my article with, “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called….Monday.” If you can suddenly hear Prince’s guitar as he starts the song, “Let’s Go Crazy,” then you are a person after my own heart, because back in 1984 there were very few things cooler than Prince.
In fact, what am I saying? There are still very few things cooler than Prince. He was just the MAN. He had his own style, his own way, his own color. Everything he does is magic and I’ve been mesmerized from him from the start.
So, it should come as no surprise that if something could mesmerize Prince himself, I was on board. In the rock musical drama Purple Rain, Prince’s first movie role, his character, The Kid, was transfixed by a singer named Apollonia.
I thought she was the most beautiful thing and I loved to watch her dance, sing, and date Prince in the film. Since then I haven’t heard very much about her, so when I saw she’d be at the most recent Hollywood Show, I jumped at the chance to get a picture with her.
Sadly, I doubt my day will ever come with Prince, so this was the next best thing. While not super chatty, she was polite at the show, and we were able to get our pictures with her. Success! Too bad she wasn’t wearing any purple.
