Prince dropped in on the ladies of the television show "The View" this morning. As he entered the stage, he presented each with a pair of tickets to his upcoming December 18 concert at NYC's Madison Square Garden. Lucky ladies - it's sold out!
View host Sherri Shepherd looked like she was about to faint when Prince's chair was placed beside hers. She asked Prince to say into the mic "Sherri I love you" (he obliged) and then like a crazed fan, asked if she could keep his gloves (he again obliged). But when she told Prince she has always wanted to sleep with him, he made a quick, humorous exit.
Prince's string of concerts in NY start next week with shows at the IZOD Center in New Jersey on December 15 and 17th (tickets still available!), and Madison Square Garden on the 18th (sold out). He also recently announced an additional show at MSG on January 18th - tickets go on presale today (password: tribute) or tomorrow to the general public. You don't want to miss this!
Where else will Prince pop up in NYC while he's there? We can't wait to find out. - Dr.FB
Sherri Shephard attended the 75th Anniversary of the Apollo Theatre on Monday night and almost lost it when she ran into Prince.
She twittered this message: just got back from Apollo 75th Anniversary... Prince walked by me 3x...I almost passed out in my seat. He's such a tiny little thing!
It seems Prince is the star other stars get nervous to meet or see.
Speaking of Prince, it was reported that he attended the Tony Awards last night and at an after party met Karen Olivo, who is starring in West Side Story. It seems Prince said he would be attending the show next Tuesday and purchased 20 tickets in the balcony to make sure no one is sitting next to him. 20 tickets?
We are being told the ticket situation is being widely exaggerated. Karen Olivo is a married woman and did attend the Award show and after parties with her husband Also, a few years ago, Prince was put on a list of people who bring very little of an entourage with him, usually himself and someone else while a bodyguard waits in the wings. Janet Jackson would bring the most usually an entourage of 30 people. His 2 tickets sound more believable in this economy than 20!
Although...I am sure Karen Olivo would be kind of geeked while performing and looks up to the balcony and only sees Prince there!-Dr.FB
