1. See, Hear: Interview with R&B Singer/Actress Vanity (1985).

    Sending special birthday shouts to none other than Denise Matthews, the entertainer formerly known as Vanity. It’s been a long time since the Prince protégée was a “Nasty Girl” (Matthews has been an evangelist since the mid ’90s) yet one can catch a glimpse of her old wild side in this sit down for the Ebony/Jet Showcase television series in which she’s quizzed by Bryant Gumbel’s bro, Greg. A peep into what we presume is her crib at the time reveals Vanity’s new wavish art work and a fixation for the cartoon character Betty Boop. To further celebrate the one-time sex symbol’s born day, may we suggest you crank up the VCR and throw on those VHS copies of The Last Dragon and Action Jackson .
