Prince is trending following an onstage encounter with Kim Kardashian at his closing concert at Madison Square Garden in New York. During a set that featured crowd-pleasing vintage hits "Pop Life," "Sign o’ the Times," and "I Would Die 4 U," Prince invited Kardashian on stage to dance, but the reality-show star didn’t quite answer the call. So, the Purple One sent her back to her seat. Kardashian later tweeted, "I was nervous. I froze when Prince touched me." Fortunately, the ubiquitous Hollywood socialite was invited back on stage later in the show and reportedly redeemed herself, though there’s no video evidence of that.
