Prince Ain’t Much of a People Person

July 17th, 2007 // 4 Comments

Over the weekend, Prince delivered an impressive two-hour performance, with ticket-holders shelling out a whopping $3,000. Afterwards, he was scheduled to host guests in a private room the club, Flirt. However, when the artist currently known as Prince saw that he wasn’t the first to arrive at the room, he decided to high-tail it back into his limo, where he basically hung out for the rest of the evening. Those waiting included Jon Bon Jovi, Leonardo DiCaprio and Londell McMillan, but Prince would not be swayed. From Fox News:

The guests drifted to Dune, a nearby club owned by Noah Tepperberg and Jason Strauss, who helped put on the big outdoor Prince show for 1,000 people on a field owned by the very private Ross School.

Guests were heard singing, “Someday my prince will come.” He did not.

Whatever. Prince can do what he wants. If you can afford to spend $3,000 to go see Prince, then I probably don’t know you and have trouble sympathizing with you in the first place. And secondly, you gotta love the crazy. I hope he was in his car, mournfully playing that insane-looking guitar of his, while he lamented the pressures of being Prince.

    Prince has been this way since he first came out decades ago. He don’t mingle much…but he will give you a great show. I’m happy for the music.

    Prince has never mingled with lesser beings, and he sure isn’t going to start because someone paid $3,000 for a ticket.

    “His name is Prince…and he is funky.”

    Prince is an artist, not a mere celebrity like all these other no talent jerks out here. Us artists can be shy, self-consciouss and moody at times. At least he has the talent to back up his funky mood swings!!

  4. While I’m not concerned about the folks who paid $3000 for a ticket, I am concerned about Dorothy Zbornak. What is she going to wear to Blanche’s party now that Prince took her purple jacket and palazzo pants?
