Kesha found herself lucky enough to be face to face with Prince once…because she snuck into his home and tried to give him her demo disc! The ‘Tik Tok’ singer has shared the cutest story about how she broke into his house while he was there in hopes of meeting the superstar.
We really need a story like this to make us smile after the sad news that Prince passed away at 57-years-old. It comes from none other than Kesha, 29, who did a little breaking and entering into his suburban Minneapolis estate Paisley Park and not only got past security, she roamed around and found Prince! Keeping reading for her hilarious story about their only encounter.
“I like cruised up in my dead grandpa’s car and I get out of the car,” Kesha told Jimmy Fallon, 41, during an appearance on The Tonight Show. “And there’s a gardener in the front yard and I was like, ‘Here, five bucks and just don’t make a thing and I’m just gonna slide right under this gate.’ And he just laughed and thought it was funny and I was, you know, charming at the time and so I snuck under the fence and then I just like, trolloped up the mountain.”
“I knew that Prince would live on a mountain,” Jimmy responded. “That’s so cool to know! In my dreams, that’s where he lives.”
“The door was open,” Kesha continued. “It was unlocked. So I was like, ‘It’s basically an invitation,’ so I walked in and everything was purple velvet, so I was like, very pleased that my fantasy had come true and there really was purple velvet everywhere.” That should be no shocker, as that’s his signature color and his breakthrough album was 1984’s Purple Rain.
“And I walk into the elevator and there’s Prince music playing,” Kesha continued. “And then I go up in the elevator and I come out and I’m on the phone with my mom being like, ‘I think I might get arrested’ and then I walk out and there’s Prince, playing the guitar, with a beanie on and I almost pooped my pants.” Stream Prince’s music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
“He just kind of looked at me funny,” Kesha revealed about the late singer. “I didn’t even get it out. I just like, got a look like, ‘Who the hell are you?’ and then I just like, waved around a CD and I like, put it on a table and then I ran away.” A security guard then escorted her off the property.
“Prince was totally nice,” she added. “He’s short, yeah, but he’s amazing.” While he never did give her a call, that was okay with Kesha as she added, “I just love him, he’s my favorite.”
