Prince Surprise

(Gibson) Viewers of ABC's morning show, The View, got a special, purple wake-up surprise last Thursday when Prince made an unannounced appearance on the program. Even the show's panel of hosts was thoroughly startled when Prince sauntered onto their stage all the hosts except for Whoopi Goldberg, who had secretly arranged for the visit.

Goldberg interrupted a conversation between the hosts to say, "Oh, my god! Is that Prince?" The studio audience erupted in wild applause. Prince, in dark shades and a sparkly black jacket, took a seat with the panel after debonairly kissing the hand of host Barbara Walters and handing out to each host some tickets for his upcoming concert at Madison Square Garden. The Garden show is one of several Prince will be playing in the New York area this month as part of his "Welcome 2 America" concert series.

Prince began a short interview on the morning program by saying, "These are strange hours for a rock star." When Walters pointed out that Justin Bieber had cited him as a role model and had expressed a desire to have a career as long as Prince's, The Purple One responded by saying, "The key to longevity is to learn every aspect of music that you can." Prince kept the appearance short claiming that he hadn't had breakfast yet. When swooning co-host Sherri Shepherd told him, "I have wanted to make love to you my whole life," Prince answered, "On that note..." and sauntered off the stage. more on this story
