That Time Prince Met Kim Kardashian ... and Kicked Her off Stage

Prince always knew how to get the party started during his concerts – but one odd encounter with Kim Kardashian was a real record-scratch moment for the music legend.

Kardashian (accompanied by then boyfriend Kris Humphries) attended Prince’s concert at Madison Square Garden back in February 2011. At a moment when Prince invited audience members up to dance with him, Kardashian was lucky enough to be chosen.

It seemed like her nerves got the best of her, though, and she refused to dance – which isn’t cool at a Prince concert. All in good fun, he hilariously told her to “get off the stage!”

After the snub, she explained the reason she froze up, tweeting, “I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me!!!!”

Luckily, Prince gave Kardashian a second chance and invited her up again, and she was able to redeem herself.

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

As it turns out, Kardashian – who was friendly with Prince’s first wife Mayte Garcia – later mentioned the incident to her on an episode Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

What a night, indeed.
