It's little surprise then that Sheila took up drumming and quickly became really good at it, playing with such luminaries as George Duke, Music/MarvinGaye, Alphonso Johnson, HerbieHancock and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Lionel Richie]] before her early twenties.

Apollonia played Prince's girlfriend in ''PurpleRain'' and the entire band made an appearance. An album, ''Apollonia 6'', followed in 1984 but by this point Prince lost interest in his GirlGroup, since Apollonia told him that she was OnlyInItForTheMoney. While ''Apollonia 6'' featured much better production values and backing vocals from Wendy & Lisa and Jill Jones, it suffered from even weaker material than before and even more over-the-top "explicit" lyrics that stumbled bravely into Narmland, as seen by the hilariously stupid "Sex Shooter" and the HotForStudent song "Happy Birthday Mr. Christian". You know you're in a bad position when what's most notable about your album is what songs ''didn't'' make it - reportedly, Prince had considered "Manic Monday", "17 Days", "The Glamorous Life" and his duet with Apollonia, "Take Me With U", for inclusion on ''Apollonia 6'' before he geave them to TheBangles, himself, Sheila E. and himself again (on the ''PurpleRain'' soundtrack), respectively.

Vanity 6 broke up a year later in 1983, when Vanity suddenly dropped out of the Prince camp and gave up her role in ''PurpleRain''. Undaunted, Prince replaced her with Patricia "Apollonia" Kotero and re-named them "Apollonia 6". Vanity went on to release two albums on the Motown label and dated MotleyCrue's bass player, Nikki Sixx. She also started to abuse drugs, to the point where she was hospitalized and given a kidney transplant in 1994. From that point onward, Vanity reverted to her birthname and dedicated her life to God, becoming an evangelical minister in 1998. She died in 2016 at age 57.

* {{Sampling}}: Prince later sampled the orgasm in "Vibrator" a few times for his band Madhouse, and for his own song "Orgasm" off the album ''Come''. Vanity is credited as "she knows" for the latter.

* SpokenWordInMusic: Some of their songs eschew ending in favour of repeating the backing track and adding dialogue that may or may not be all that funny. The song "Chili Sauce" is five straight minutes of seductive dialogue, while "Wild and Loose" features two sets of dialogue at once: groupies who were happy to have met Morris in the left channel and the band in the right, culminating in Morris meeting the girls again in the center channel, unable to remember who they are.

The band itself was short-lived, lasting barely a year before Peterson left, sick of Prince's {{Control Freak}}ism. Still, it marked the beginning of Prince'ss long-term collaboration with Eric Leeds, for what it's worth.

Sheila's solo albums after leaving Prince's organisation were {{New Sound Album}}s somewhat, introducing Latin and jazz influences into her upbeat pop-funk. She took a long break from her solo career after the horribly-titled ''Sex Cymbal'', presumably out of embarrassment that she put out an album titled ''Sex Cymbal''[[note]]we can't blame her for that[[/note]], and played with various other musicians (including being part of three versions of Music/RingoStarr's All-Starr Band). She also reunites with Prince every once in a while for live concerts and contributed to his album ''3121''.

Chavez next played Prince's romantic interest in ''Graffiti Bridge''.

Prince's latest backing band, [=3RDEYEGiRL=] is a three-piece rock and blues outfit. Not much is known about them presently, but they've proven in concerts and television appearances that they are a very solid and promising band. Prince placed the call to each member between 2010 and 2012, and created the band name himself – he didn't tell the girls the name, instead letting them find out when Jimmy Fallon called them by it during a live television appearance. Unfortunately, Prince being Prince, he had to screw them out of solo success by releasing his own album ''ART OFFICIAL AGE'' on the same day as their album.

Prince decided to repay their hard work by being a complete JerkAss towards them, turning each tour between 1984-1986 into a game of "How can I piss off Wendy and Lisa today?" (answer: giving Leeds Wendy's solos on "Purple Rain", expanding The Revolution with more musicians, antagonising Wendy by bringing her twin sister Susannah in the band and getting romantically involved with her, etc). Prince's asshole behaviour towards Wendy and Lisa in ''Film/PurpleRain'' [[FunnyAneurysmMoment wasn't exactly acting.]] In fact, Prince's conflict with the two was one of the key intra-band conflicts that eventually led to Prince's disbanding of The Revolution in 1986.

After he left the Prince camp, he built his own studio (named [=StarVu=] Studios), worked on some videogame soundtracks, created a sample library, put out a solo album named ''Ultrasound'' in 2001, and signed an exclusive management deal for Europe with the company Mozart & Friends. Presumably this will lead to his releases being actually distributed in Europe.

Well, she was a backup singer for R&B star Teena Marie back at the start of TheEighties, and this is exactly how she met Prince during his 1980 ''Dirty Mind'' tour. She was quickly recruited as a backing singer for The Revolution itself, adding backing vocals to several songs on ''1999'' and appearing in the videos for "1999" and "Little Red Corvette". She had a bit part as a waitress in ''PurpleRain'' and a cameo in its shittier sequel ''Graffiti Bridge'', in a scene where she [[{{Squick}} takes off an undergarment to end a conflict with Prince]].

The Time were a [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly pop-funk-rock]] ensemble that relied heavily on RuleOfFunny and [[EpicRocking very long jams]]. They were largely defined by frontman [[FaceOfTheBand Morris Day's]] hilarious lyrics and ChivalrousPervert-HandsomeLech persona, with Jerome Benton serving as his {{Foil}}. This dynamic was observed through their appearance in ''Purple Rain'' as Prince's rival band, and Day's humorous persona proved to be one of the few points that critics liked, with many even commenting that he upstaged Prince's acting (not much of a compliment, admittedly... [[DullSurprise Prince's acting]] makes KeanuReeves look like WilliamShatner).

As befitting an associate band, for their initial period of 1981-1985, Prince played all instruments on The Time albums and simply overdubbed their vocals. However, Prince got HoistByHisOwnPetard here as The Time ably played the same songs live and occasionally would show up Prince when opening for The Revolution to get back at him for lack of input and low payments (a live recording circulating from 1983 features Jellybean playing the complicated drum machine part from "777-9311" perfectly, and at a much faster tempo.) The band became notoriously displeased after having to also play as the backing band for Vanity 6 while live (as they were credited for those performances) during the Prince/Time/Vanity 6 "Triple Threat" Tour. Jam and Lewis were sacked by Prince after being snowed in and missing a flight to a concert and were replaced just in time for the film ''PurpleRain''. The replacement soured the band's relationship with Prince, and caused tension between the remaining members.

Day left the band after an argument with Prince in 1985, focusing on a solo career. The Time disbanded right then, with its remaining members being amalgamated into The Family, and Jam and Lewis going on to be famous {{Record Producer}}s, mostly for their work with JanetJackson. Jerome Benton also starred as Prince's sidekick in ''Under the Cherry Moon'', and similarly managed to out-act Prince and be considered the one character reviewers liked. Jesse Johnson put out a solo album named ''Shockadelica'' in 1986, which drove Prince to write a song called "Shockadelica" since he felt an album with that cool a title needed a title song, but Johnson had neglected to write one.

[[AC:Ingrid Chavez]]

Ingrid Chavez is Mexican-American and has been married to David Sylvian of the band Music/{{Japan}} since 1992.

Chavez is one of those fringe figures in Prince's entourage. That's probably because she ain't an actual singer, but a poet instead. Prince was impressed by her poetry and quickly recruited her into his ever-expanding harem-cum-musical empire, first letting her contribute vocals to ''Lovesexy''. Around this time, she cultivated a mysterious appearance and was nicknamed "The Spirit Child". OK, sure, whatever, at least Prince didn't try to rename her to "Clitoris" or something like that.

Chavez next played Prince's romantic interest in ''GraffitiBridge''. It was during the filming that she, Music/LennyKravitz and Andre Betts co-wrote and recorded Madonna's famous hit "Justify My Love" - reportedly, Chavez came up with most of the lyrics and Kravitz thought sampling Music/PublicEnemy would be a nifty idea.[[note]]Judging by the success, turned out it was.[[/note]] A solo album followed, ''May 19, 1992'' (released, oddly enough, in 1991), which combined Chavez's spoken-word poetry with atmospheric backing music composed by Prince and was favourably reviewed, one critic comparing it to "an entire album of 'Justify My Love's".

Chavez drifted out of Prince's [[strike:harem]] musical empire soon after. Since then, she's frequently recorded with her husband David Sylvian and with Ryuichi Sakamoto of Music/YellowMagicOrchestra.

Prince is a fan of Music/Kat Bush, and met her during the 1990 ''Nude Tour'', discussing a collaboration. Bush sent him the song "Why Should I Love You?", asking for backing vocals. When she received it back, Prince had not only sung but also added his own sizeable instrumental overdubs. This baffled Bush and her engineer Del Palmer, who then spent two years working on and off on it to try and "turn it back into a Kate Bush song". It eventually came out on 1993's ''The Red Shoes''.[[note]]The final version also features backing vocals from Bush's friend Creator/LennyHenry, a comedian known for his good Prince impersonation, as well as the obligatory Trio Bulgarka cameo.[[/note]]
