Just in time for Valentine's Day
I have found the Holy Grail of 1980s videos - the immortal Vanity 6 magnificent product of Prince's hoochie factory of lady performers from back in the day, singing the romantic ballad "Nasty Girl." Not fully understanding the lyrics due to my strict Latina Catholic upbringing, I nonetheless loved the song. Perhaps it was the beat and the joy of seeing women on stage that did not look like anorexic Barbies. In any case, I know the nuns were none too pleased to hear me parroting the lyrics as I sashayed to French class in my plaid uniform listening to this on my walkman.
