I think the context, though, is that there was disatisfaction with her performance leading up to the infamous comment. It's one thing if you've been doing a great job, and one night do an exceptionally unmatchable job, and make a humourous comment not to expect that repeated all the time. I got the sense from what I read that she was consistently low energy, tentative, and not delivering the goods, and then on opening night gave the "normal" great performance one might have expected and that Prince has been longing for, and then indicated that she wouldn't be doing that on a regular basis.
