Prince adored beautiful women, but it wasn’t love at first sight with Kim Kardashian.
As we remember the music legend, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 57, let’s look back at one of our favorite antics from the Purple Rain singer … Remember that time he kicked Kim Kardashian off his stage?
The year was 2011. If you need a refresher on just how long ago that really was, we were in Kim’s Kris Humphries era. Prince pulled the reality TV star up on stage during his concert at Madison Square Garden only to give her the boot shortly after, as seen in this video.
It all started when Prince tried to dance with a motionless Kim. Seriously, Prince wanted to dance with her and she just stood there.
“Get off the stage,” he eventually said. Maybe Prince was annoyed because she was too busy live-tweeting the moment to actually live in the moment?
“OMG Prince just pulled me up on stage!!! I’m shaking!!!!” she shared with her followers. That tweet was quickly followed up with an explanation of why she was shooed away. “I was so nervous, I froze when Prince touched me!” she tweeted.

Apparently, the Grammy winner was in a forgiving mood that fateful February night.
“Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself. We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!” Kim later wrote.
If you want another laugh, this is what Humphries had to say about his lady love’s awkward moment with Prince: “Kim got shy on stage. She looked gorgeous, though!”
Today, this is what the NBA player tweeted: “RIP to Prince Rogers Nelson, the greatest musician of all time. Sad day. #minnesota #goat #Purplerain”
Oh, Prince. You will be missed.
