One of the things we’ll always miss about Prince is the fact that he was never a man who suffered fools gladly. Fame be damned – if you acted a fool on Prince’s time, it was a guarantee that you’d be called out (and wouldn’t even blame him for it because damn, Prince calling me out feels worse than my neighbors snitching on me to my parents).
A fine example of this is a viral video featuring Prince performing back in 2011, but this wasn’t just any performance; no, this was the night Prince Rogers Nelson became the hero we all needed when he put a certain reality TV star in her place, and we loved him for it.
On a rain soaked night 7 years ago, Prince was performing in New York City when he invited Kim Kardashian onstage to dance with him. Apparently, the honor proved to be too much for the reality TV star – she froze up and stood there awkwardly instead of dancing, prompting Prince to tell her to “Get off my stage” before sending her back into the audience.
There are some rules in life that are made to be followed: you don’t tug on Superman’s cape, you don’t spit in the wind or pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger, you definitely don’t mess around with Jim, and when Prince said ‘dance,’ you danced.
Check out the footage below and enjoy a giggle or two this morning in honor of the Purple One!
