Aura should had been played by Vanity

Vanity was the original Actress for Purple Rain. I know she left the camp for a promising Solo career. 1990 was even before Denise Matthews, aka "Vanity" found Jesus. Just wondering "what if".


I think Vanity was suffering health problems due to heroine addiction. She used so many drugs her kidneys failed.

Ingrid Chavez moved from Albuquerque to Minneapolis to pursue a music career and she made her dream come true with Prince.

Appolonia didn't have the voice to do another movie.


I don't believe Vanity did heroin. It was crack cocaine that she smoked a lot of and ultimately did a lot of damage to her body.
