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.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
