Even Kim Kardashian West gets starstruck sometimes!

The reality star took to Instagram on Friday to revisit and explain her awkward encounter with Prince several years ago.

“I will always remember this moment with one of my favorite artists! I was so star struck I froze RIP Prince,” she captioned a photo of her onstage at with the late pop star at his Madison Square Garden concert in February 2011.

At the concert, which Kardashian West attended with then-boyfriend Kris Humphries, she was lucky enough to be invited onstage – and then refused to dance. After Prince told her to “get off the stage!” Kardashian West, now 35, defended herself on Twitter, writing, “I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!”

But don’t worry – Prince gave Kardashian West a second chance, and this time she did not disappoint.

“Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!” she tweeted a little while later.

Prince was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota on Thursday morning and pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. He was 57.
