was basically exploding with talent. But did you know his expertise went Prince beyond music and fashion?
Yesterday, as news began to circulate of his untimely passing, users on social media shared their favorite Prince moments. In the midst of these tributes, we stumbled upon a few videos that highlighted the human side of the icon often viewed as reclusive and mysterious.
Van Jones, CNN commentator and close friend of Prince, offered that had he not been so successful in music, Prince could’ve prospered as a comedian. After reliving a few of his funniest moments in the videos below, it’s clear to see why.
Watch Prince’s comedic (and somewhat shady) moments below, and you’re bound to fall
even more in love with him.
That time he kicked Kim Kardashian off stage.
Clearly, he wasn’t here for Madonna.
Caught on camera giving Alicia Keys the side-eye.
That time he shut down Michael Jackson in ping pong.
On why he turned down a collaboration with Michael.
And then there’s this moment..LMAO
Shade, shade, shade.

“I don’t celebrate birthdays.”
Rest in peace, Prince.
