The Purple One sauntered out onto the set of “The View” Thursday morning, surprising the hosts and the audience combined. The audience’s screams were so loud that the sound went out for a moment. “These are strange hours for a rock star,” he said after taking a seat next to Sherri Shepard, who looked like she was about to faint. Did he not look über fabulous?!
Prince Rogers Nelson was there to promote his upcoming Welcome 2 America shows and the lucky hostesses each were handed free tickets. I am seriously jealous.
“He [Bieber]said, ‘What I hope, is that I can be like Prince,'” she says. “You are his idea of the consummate performer.”
I hope you noticed how quickly and awkwardly Prince bolted from the stage immediately upon hearing Sherri Shepard gush, “I’ve wanted to make love to you for my whole life.”
Congratulations, Sherri. You might have been the only woman Prince has ever turned down.
