Look, no one knows how they would react if Prince just walked into the room. We understand that. We would hope, however, that we would act a little more chill than Sherri Shepherd did when Prince surprised The View with a unannounced appearance today. In town to promote his Welcome 2 America tour, Prince (who looks like he is made out of snake skin) (in a good way) had all the ladies swooning, but it was Shepherd who went crazy crackers upon meeting her idol.
Sherri clutched her chest like she was having palpitations, tried to steal Prince’s gloves and finally snuggled her head to his chest before announcing, “I’ve wanted to make love to you my whole life.” Prince must have just then remembered a very important appointment, because he could not have sprinted off that stage faster if it had been on fire. Before he left however, Prince offered some career advice to, of all people, Justin Bieber. “The key to longevity is to learn every aspect of music you can. I hope he does pick up an instrument and get a good teacher,” the singer explained to Barbara Walters. So is Justin Bieber this generation’s Prince? Let’s bring him on the show and see how Sherri reacts; that’s the only way to know for sure.
