When you're one of the most iconic musicians of all time, women are bound to find you intensely attractive. Prince, the stone cold legend of pop, funk, and rock who died at age 57 on Thursday, was clearly catnip to the ladies, even if he did have a penchant for ruffles and high heels back in the day.
The absurdly charismatic superstar used his boiling sensuality and mind-blowing talent to date countless gorgeous women during his Purple Reign, but here are a few of the most famous:
While romancing a stunning model and aspiring singer named Tara Patrick, Prince gave her the name Carmen Electra, and later produced her forgettable debut album. They broke up in 1991.
Prince wrote "The Most Beautiful Girl In The World" for this gorgeous actress, who reportedly wore a Prince necklace during her stint on General Hospital.
Back when she was a bonafide '80s sexpot, Prince romanced Basinger (a rare blonde among his famous exes) while she was playing Vicki Vale in the original Batman movie and he was writing songs for the soundtrack.
It's no wonder the lead singer of '80s all-girl band The Bangles succumbed to Prince's charms—he wrote the band's biggest hit, 'Manic Monday.'
The model, actress and Prince protege — who fronted the lace-wearing pop trio Vanity 6 — dated His Purpleness in the early '80s.
The sizzling exotic belly dancer and muse was married to Prince from 1996-2000. She later went on to date Tommy Lee.
Perhaps the most famous of all of Prince's exes, she co-starred with him in Purple Rain, during which she memorably stripped down to purify herself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.
