Talk about iconic! The one and only Prince preformed and was honored at the Billboard Awards on May 19.
If anyone deserves the Billboard Icon Award, it’s Prince! At the Billboard Music Awards, the talented star put on a super sexy performance of “Let’s Go Crazy” and “Fix Ur Life Up” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Prince Receives Billboard Icon Award
Janelle Monae and Erykah Badu hit the stage to present Prince with the prestigious award and introduce the star! In the past, the award has gone to other incredible artists including Stevie Wonder.
The seven-time Grammy Award winner is extremely grateful for his fans.
He said in a recent interview to Tavis Smiley:
I think from the beginning, as I was coming into my own persona and understanding of who I was, I never talked down to my audience. When you don’t talk down to your audience, then they can grow with you. I give them a lot of credit to be able to hang with me this long, because I’ve gone through a lot of changes, but they’ve allowed me to grow, and thus we can tackle some serious subjects and try to just be better human beings, all of us.
Prince Puts On Killer Performance
Prince took the stage after winning the award and was joined by 3rdEyeGirl.
He looked great on stage, wearing a green turtleneck with matching lime green flare pants, and a black frayed jacket. Rocking sunglasses and an afro, Prince looked to be having a great time on stage.
Prince displayed that he definitely still has it! He completely jammed out on the guitar while performing his 1984 hit song, “Let’s Go Crazy.” Then, he transitioned into his new song “Fix Ur Life Up,” which he recently released in April 2013.
Did you enjoy Prince’s performance, HollywoodLifers?
