Denise Katrina Matthews passed away in 2016, on the 15th of February in Fremont hospital, CA. During the last years of her life she suffered from various health disorders, including kidney disease and sclerosis.
The fact of her death caused the number of tweets among celebrities, including Beyonce and Billy Idol (rocker from Britain).
Vanity has made a wonderful career, in spite of the fact she had to suffer in her childhood. She was adopted by a single mother and spent her early years in Ontario, Canada. Then her mother got married and the girl suffered from physical violence of her abusive father. When she grew up, her great body measurements (66-59-88 cm) were noticed by talent scouts. She started her career as a model and later formed a girls’ band. Her then boyfriend advised her to take a moniker “Vaginia” but she decided to become “Vanity”, considering “Vaginia” too challenging.
The girls’ band included 5 other sexy young ladies and they were supervised by the singer Prince. Vanity’s career was blossoming, when she was Prince Protégé, but when they ended up their relationship, her fame got dim.
Vanity tried her hand as an actress and took part in several movies. The girl had hot body and that’s why she was usually chosen to play sultry heroines.
She became popular as an actress after roles in such films as “The Last Dragon”, “Never Too Young To Die”, “52 Pick Up” and some others. In general the star has 22 films in her resume.
She took part in the last movie in 1997. It was named “Kiss of Death”. Then the actress, model and singer gave up her career and became a devout Christian. She visited church regularly and during the last years of her life she hated her career, which was full of erotic movies and music videos.
She had great problems with her health and visited dialysis at Fremont Hospital. During the last years of her life the star looked not so great and her great body was ruined by disease. But in her better days Vanity looked godlike, being slim and well trained. At the same time she had never kept to diets and her workout routine was not very hard.
Now Vanity’s friends miss her so much and keep the best moments with her in their memory.
