Kim Kardashian West 'froze' on stage with Prince

Kim Kardashian West 'froze' on stage with Prince

Kim Kardashian West has recalled the moment she met Prince and "froze".

The 34-year-old reality TV star has posted a photograph on Instagram of her standing on stage with the 'Purple Rain' hitmaker - who died on Thursday (21.04.16) at his Paisley Park home - back in 2011 and revealed she was left speechless.

She captioned the picture - which received 857 thousand likes on Saturday (23.04.16): "I will always remember this moment with one of my favourite artists! I was so star struck I froze RIP Prince."

The pair met when the music icon invited the brunette beauty to join him on stage at Madison Square Garden in 2011.

But when he shimmied up to her and indicated she should dance with him, she simply giggled and shook her head "no" and awkwardly clapped instead.

Her reaction did not impress the 'Little Red Corvette' singer who promptly shooed her away and demanded she "get off the stage".

Realising her massive fail, Kim - who is now married to Kanye West with whom she has a daughter North, aged two, and a four-month-old son named Saint - took to Twitter that night and explained: "I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched."

And the forgiving superstar gave her one more opportunity to redeem herself the following night, after which she told her followers: "Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!"
