Nope.

rick got around with drugs, torture, and questionable sex pracitices.

Prince got around with sex and very strange version of Christianity.

Prince is a massively superior talent and, while his group didn't last as long, I suspect that this had more to do with boredom on his part than anything like the MJGs actually outperforming V6 (I don't care about A6).

And yes, the Vanity 6 album is on CD. I have it.

Honestly, I'd say the Dolls kill both groups on all fronts.

They don't need to cover anything.
I heard only the lead singer sings all the lyrics -- ALL the lyrics (background and what not).

I think Vanity's voice was definitely better, bu the MJG had better songs "All Night Long - Candy Man"

Here's clips of both groups (for the uninitiated):

Nasty Girl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmW8PKVP4Jg

On the strength of those, got to say V6. Actually heard some Dance remix of that track on the radio yesterday.
