The 1993 Soul Train Music Awards was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California on March 09, 1993. The show was hosted by Natalie Cole, Patti LaBelle, and Luther Vandross.
“I went to the Soul Train Music Awards…and then Madonna comes over and looks at me and she goes, ‘Girl,’” Perez said. “I go, ‘I got you.’ And he (Tupac) was like, and I said, ‘She wants to meet you,’ and he goes, ‘Hook that up.’ And I hooked it up and I was very happy about it.”
Tupac was my date because this other guy stood me up,” Perez said. “Tupac called me up and said, ‘Why you crying?’ I said, ‘Cause this man dissed me.’ He was like, ‘Forget that, I’m on my way.’ So we went and we were friends. When we get to the Soul Train Music Awards, every female artist there was on my shit” Perez said. “And they kept going, ‘Hi, Rosie, Hi, Hi. Never spoke to me before. And there was two girls, they will remain nameless, who wanted to beat me up. And I was telling Tupac, ‘Would you tell them I ain’t sleeping with you? We just friends.’ And he goes, ‘You can take ’em.'” He’s a sweetheart, very intelligent man and I miss him dearly, and a senseless death.”
