PRINCE GETS ICON AWARD AT BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS
The man who just slayed audiences at 4 shows in 2 nights at the Showbox Sodo in Seattle, was celebrated in Las Vegas at Billboard Music Awards. Prince, also known as His Royal Purple One, received the highest honors with the Billboard Icon award.
And just how did Prince celebrate being celebrated? He wowed the crowd. Just like his Seattle show, he broke out a medley with a slowed-down rock-grinding version of Let’s Go Crazy. And, just like in the Showbox, he was accompanied by Third Eye-Girl, his all-female band of talented hard rockers. Next up,“Fix Your Life Up” off his new album. Wearing a turquoise and purple outfit, Prince sang, danced and shredded on the guitar. He also sported a large afro — and had shaved off his trademark mustache and sideburns. Congratulations, sir, well deserved, and well done… so far.
