Prince Threw Kim Kardashian Off His Stage at Madison Square Garden In 2011

When Prince says ‘Dance,’ you dance!

Prince was known for being an incredibly prolific musician, releasing 39 studio albums between 1978 and 2015. He’s also rumoured to have a vault full of music and various other projects that he’s never released. Much like James Brown, he was also a taskmaster when it came to rehearsals and demanded that his band and dancers work just as hard as he did. So when Km Kardashian came on stage to dance with him five years ago, and had no moves, he promptly threw her off his stage.


On February 7, 2011, Prince played Madison Square Garden in New York City as part of his 80-plus show “Welcome 2” tour. During the song “Controversy,” Prince invited women in the audience to come on stage and shake a lil’ something with His Royal Badness. But when Kim Kardashian was brought on stage she just stood there like a reality TV star caught in the headlights. So, after a few seconds, Prince sent her right back in the audience saying, “Get off my stage!”

Kardashian was clearly embarrassed after learning the obvious lesson that when Prince asks you to dance, you better shake what the Lord gave you. Soon after, radio host Ryan Seacrest brought the embarrassing moment up on his show. “It is so embarrassing when Ryan brings up the YouTube video of me not dancing on stage with Prince,” she said on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. “I swear I’m never going to dance again. This is going to haunt me forever.” And it should.

Walmart workers issued a "wake up call" to Alice Walton, an heir to the retailer's $500 billion fortune, in New York on Tuesday by marching to Walton's penthouse and demanding her company pay its 1.5 million workers a living wage and give them reliable, stable work schedules.

The protest was partially a response to the company's so-called "Great Workplace" restructuring initiative which Walmart began testing last year and plans to roll out in at least 1,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores by the end of 2020.
