Growing up as a child everything seemed so simple and worry-free. I miss the 80s: wild hair styles, shoulder pads, spandex, and great music. Remember Shelia E., the beautiful protégé of Prince, who proved that pretty faces are just as talented on the drums as their male counterparts? Shelia has influenced musical performers of all genres. Just like every boy and girl (growing up) during the 80’s, I adored Shelia E. and so did my fiancé, who as a child had a secret crush on her (I can't stop giggling at that). You’re probably wondering whatever happened to her over the years; what has she been up to and is she still living the glamorous life? Well wonder no more – Fifi’s got the scoop!
This glam gal has been a busy bee since exiting Prince’s Purple Rain train. She recorded albums Sex Cymbal, Writes of Passage, and Heaven. In 2002, Shelia made an appearance on Beyonce’s “Work It Out.” She performed alongside Prince at the Coachella Music Festival and on the Ellen Degeneres Show last week. Her recent endeavor was CMT’s Gone Country 3 in which she was crown the winner. Watching her performance on CMT3 gave me goose bumps - Oh Shelia! Although CMT’s Gone Country 3 is over I’m not sure if Shelia has gone country completely but she’s still leading the Glamorous Life after 20 plus years.
I can't imagine how scarey it was for her living under the same roof as George Clinton
