Possible Drama: Vanity was Prince’s one time girlfriend and original choice to play opposite him in his groundbreaking/classic film “Purple Rain”. At that time he and Vanity were dating and she was the lead singer in his all female group Vanity 6. They’re responsible for the hit song “Nasty Girl”. However, according to Hollywood legend Vanity and Prince broke up during the early stages of production on the movie and she declined to play the role and also left the group Vanity 6 for a solo career at Motown Records. With ultimately lead her to the role of Laura Charles in the Cult Classic film “The Last Dragon”. Prince then reshuffled the deck and found Apollonia to play the role opposite him in the movie and also take Vanity’s place in the group now renamed Apollonia 6 (I’m told the # 6 represented the number of breasts in the group) . They recorded and performed the song “Sex Shooter” in the movie and on the road. The original demo of “Sex Shooter” was sung by Vanity.

I Don’t know if either of the women had issues with each other but one thing is for certain they both were Amazing! So the question remains Fellas if you had to pick one who would you choose and why let us know. Help us settle a debate that has lasted for over 25 years. Again this is one of those “There is no wrong question Scenarios” Have fun and we hope we took you down memory lane a lil bit.

Please Note: This blog post is in no way trying to defame or belittle either of these two phenomenal women. We’ve learned that each of them have moved on in their lives and may not want to revisit this part of their entertainment careers. This is done simply out of respect from a fan perspective.

  1. There are many appolonia looking women in the world. But theres only 1 vanity. Shes was incredible. I couldnt see any other woman playing the lead in the last dragon.

  2. Dennise matters formally vanity had the best years of her life after coming to Jesus and knowing and living true peace which no money no fame no man no drug could ever give you she was set FREE from all the craziness this life could give ..she used her life to speak to people from all walks of likeability Jesus and forgiveness which alot of people really don’t care about they only think about he moment not knowing that good times only last awhile but but your life after this one is secure in Christ if you ask for forgiveness and receive him into your hearts now I know my freind Dennise is secure in her new home heaven in the arms of her heavenly father .I will be seeing us sister again o e day!!

  4. Vanity was definitely one of the most beautiful women on the planet. Apollonia was certainly attractive, but by NO means did she come close to Vanity’s beauty!
