Prince crashes 'The View' (VIDEO)
Amazing. So get this: The five women on The View were blathering on and on about what one of them should wear to an upcoming seminar or AARP meeting or something on this morning's episode, and BAM! Out strolls Prince. Whoopi Goldberg starts shouting, Sherri Shepherd starts fanning herself, and the audio cuts out for a moment, presumably because everyone in the audience was shouting "HOLY SHIT!" at the exact same time.
Turns out the Purple One stopped by to dole out tickets to one of his three upcoming Madison Square Garden shows. He took a seat at the table with the five view hosts, looking a little sleepy and joking, "These are strange hours for rock stars."
After some giggling, the ladies then somehow coaxed him into giving some career advice to Justin Bieber, who apparently wants to be JUST LIKE PRINCE when he grows up. "The key to longevity is to learn every aspect of music that you can," Prince said. "And I hope that he does pick up an instrument and get a good teacher."
Poor Shepherd couldn't keep her head in the game, though. As the other women thanked him for coming on the show, Shepherd tried to steal his gloves and then blurted out, "You don't understand, I have wanted to make love to you my whole life!"
