For many women across the globe, having Prince to request ANYTHING from them would be a hell of a Christmas presnet in itself. However, for Misty Copeland, a classically trained ballerina, it was more than a dream come true.
The classical ballerina — one of a handful of African-American ballerinas in the world — performed a sexy pas de deux to the hit “The Beautiful One” with the legendary musician after he tracked her down and asked her to be part of her show.
“It was phenomenal,” Copeland gushed. “The energy between me and Prince and the audience was really overwhelming. I mean, it was Madison Square Garden, with Prince!”
Copeland also danced with him at two shows in New Jersey, and will perform again Wednesday at the Garden. The collaboration between the ballerina and The Purple One began two years ago, when Copeland got a call from a friend of a friend in Los Angeles who said, “Prince has been looking for you.”
“The prince of what?” Copeland said.
Shortly thereafter, the singer himself called, saying he was a big fan of the ballet, had followed Copeland’s career for years and wanted her to perform in his 2009 “Crimson and Clover” video.
We wonder if she let Prince hit that? Maaan who we kidding, Prince could probably tap ANY a**! LOL
