Dearly beloved, we’re gathered here today to look back on Prince’s life, since his tragic and untimely death one year ago. In review of his career, we zoom in on one of Prince’s great triumphs. That’s right: That one time he kicked Kim Kardashian off the stage.
Sitting front row at the Feb. 7, 2011, at Madison Square Garden show, Kardashian was an A-list celebrity at the time. Prince, low-key observer of pop culture, knew Kardashian was a massive deal—just not a massive deal to him.
Here are five clips of Prince performing live that are worth watching (while you can) https://t.co/SGh2jaKzYG— New York Times Arts (@nytimesarts) April 21, 2017
After the awkward Kardashian showed herself worthless to him onstage, Prince told her to, “get off the stage” to much applause.
The audacity. What can we learn here? Given the rampant popularity of this clip, dusted off and trending all over the web to mark the anniversary of his death, it’s clear that people enjoy seeing celebs knocked off their high horses. And also that we love and miss Prince so much it hurts.
