Does the world really need a movie about 80’s pop group Vanity6? Well, someone obviously thinks so because a made for TV movie about the group is apparently already in the works. The brain child of singer Prince, Vanity 6 was suppose to be the singer’s answer to Rick James’ Mary Jane Girls (read up on the rivalry here). The group put out one album, Vanity 6, that went on to produce the hit single “Nasty Girl.” However, lead singer Vanity (Denise Matthews) left the group and was later replaced by Appolonia Kotero.
Check out the press release below…
“Today, you can still hear their hit song on Top 40 radio and in nightclubs throughout the world. In 1982, the explicitness of Vanity 6 caused many a mother to cringe as their young daughters emulated Vanity, Brenda, or Susan in their bedroom mirrors; however, Vanity 6 lives on in the hearts and memories of steadfast fans and is the genesis of many of the girl groups that captivate the youth of today.
“V6” is a made-for-television motion picture in the making that is based on the lives and times of the famed trio. The film is now being produced for a cable television network and is in its development stage. “V6″ promises to produce a genuine look behind the purple curtain at the bold women who emanated confident sensuality and rocked the stage in revealing lingerie before any other act dared. These women breathed life into the fantastical imagery lurking in the minds of men and their collective chronicle is filled with the brand of drama you would anticipate from a pop iconic group with the musician Prince as their headmaster.”
