On the final night of the New York leg of his Welcome To America tour which saw him complete his first string of East Coast (America) shows since 2004, Pop/R&B legend Prince brought out Cee Lo Green to perform the Gnarls Barkley 2006 smash hit ‘Crazy’ in front of a sold-out crowd at the famous Madison Square Gardens.
In the ultimate act of philanthropy, it was announced at a press conference before the concert that Prince would be giving $1.5 million to three local charities. He’s giving the Harlem Children’s Zone a line of credit of $1 million and $250,000 lines of credit to the Uptown Dance Academy and American Ballet Theatre.
As we understand it. they’re lines of credit and not traditional donations so that Prince can remain involved in and know the needs of these organizations as they draw on funds to grow their groups and accomplish their missions.
In other “news”, it is being reported that throughout the show Prince specially selected different women from the 19000 capacity audience to join him on stage and dance with him – one of such women was American socialite Kim Kardashian – and after Ms. Kardashian couldn’t even muster a ‘two-step’, Prince promptly ushered her off the stage.
I’m not even trying to be funny but does Prince even know who Kim Kardashian is? This is neither here nor there as it goes but I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t.
