So Prince was in New York City to give Patti Labelle an award and it was surprise to Patti as it was kept very much on the hush hush. It seems a lot of people did not know as many celebs were speechless such as MC of the night Steve Harvey.
We learned that the night before, Prince stopped by the West Side Story After Party for the Tony's to visit with Lori Werner aka Lori Elle aka Diamond, who used to dance with Prince and is also a choreographer for West Side Story. Karen Olivo along with other West Side Story cast members were in attendance while Prince was there.
Prince did promise to attend a West Side Story performance sometime in the future but not certain when. I wonder what outfit he would break out for that?
P.S. Perez, Prince does not have two messed up hips. Perhaps you should do your homework before lifting a story from another site anyway.- 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
