Late music icon Prince and reality-TV superstar Kim Kardashian once shared a stage together at the rocker’s concert in 2011 at Madison Square Garden. The reality star was invited to dance on stage, but after a few seconds, Prince kicked her off in front of everyone! The late musician danced around her for as long as he could, but Kardashian’s lack of rhythm and skills forced Prince to tell her to “get off the stage.”
The general rule is that when Prince asks you on stage, you are supposed to lose yourself and dance like no one’s watching. But anyone who watches Keeping Up with the Kardashians, knows that Kim can’t dance and doesn’t like to embarrass herself. There’s even a “Prince and Kim Kardashian video” online and an episode devoted to the concert.
Prince is known for his humor and was just having a good time with Kardashian, but everyone knows how sensitive the star can be and was initially caught off guard at the request. (Since when is Kim nervous in a room full of people staring at her?)
Kardashian later spoke to Prince on Twitter about the incident:
I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!! http://twitpic.com/3xkig7

In the wake of Prince’s death at the age of 57, celebrities and fans are honoring the deceased artist in every way that feels right to them. Many have taken to Twitter, Facebook, and other forms of social media to pay tribute. Kardashian hasn’t publicly commented on Prince’s death yet, but her mother, Kris, tweeted her condolences yesterday. No doubt that the Kardashian family is mourning with the rest of Prince’s fans and family.
