As I’m sure you are aware by now, music legend Prince passed away last night at the age of 57.
He will be remembered for many things, but this video right here encapsulates exactly why he was loved by so many.
It was shot at one of his concerts at Madison Square Garden back in 2011, and it features a young(er) Kim Kardashian near the beginning of her ‘being on TV and posting things on social media’ career.
To start with Prince pulls Kim up on stage, but when the Purple One tries to dance with her she just stands still like a gormless robot.
The pop icon was having none of it, and he quickly boots the reality star off the stage, dismissing her in stereotypical style and telling the audience, ‘Welcome to America’.

Maybe Kim was too busy live tweeting to dance like a regular human being, telling her followers: “OMG Prince just pulled me up on stage!!! I’m shaking!!!!”

According to Yahoo News she later explained her actions, tweeting: “I was so nervous, I froze when Prince touched me!”
But the Purple Rain singer was in a forgiving mood it seems, and let her back up on stage later where she became unfrozen and remembered how to dance, telling her followers: “Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself. We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!”
