1980s recording artist and former protogee of The Artist
Born Denise Matthews in 1959. Changed her name to Vanity when she hooked up with Prince in the early 1980s. He formed a lingerie group around her called Vanity 6.
Vanity 6's most memorable hit song was called "Nasty Girl" and though they were completely untalented, they got a lot of attention for looking like skanks. She and Prince later broke up and he took replaced with an Mexican actress named Patty Kotero who Prince renamed Appolonia. The "Appolonia 6" appeared in Purple Rain.
Vanity released a two more albums and appeared on tv (in one really cool episode of "Friday the 13th--The Series")and in the movies like The Last Dragon and Action Jackson.
In the early 90s she was engaged to Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. They eventually broke up because they were both complete losers and coke fiends.
Years later Vanity gave her life to Jesus and was "born again." She changed her name back to Denise and is now not nearly as interesting as she once was.
Personally, I'm waiting for the "E! True Hollywood Story" to come out.
